NEC: no OS X drivers for Superscript 1400

Christopher Owens forwarded a response from NEC Tech Support to his inquiry about OS X drivers for the company's Superscript 1400 printer, saying that the1400 has "hardware limitations that prevent it from functioning in a Unix based environment."

Office v.X \'free\' upgrade confusion in US,

Tom Schwab notes differences in the US and UK cutoff dates for Microsoft's free Office v. X upgrade:

"I just purchased Office 2001 for the Mac and received my software October 17th. Unfortunately according to this web page: the free upgrade to Office v.X will be given to USA purchases after October 24th. Otherwise the upgrade will be $149...However, if you purchase Office 2001 for the Mac after September 1st in the UK (nearly 8 weeks earlier) you will receive a free Office v.X upgrade according to this web page. The discrepancy may cost me $149 as my USA purchase was one week too early...I've e-mailed Microsoft about this discrepancy of which your readers may be interested."
