    Another use for the scroll wheel. (WinXP)

    I don't know whether this is a previously known function of the scroll wheel, but I'll describe it anyway. If you press the CTRL key and use the scroll wheel while you are in email, a document or web page the text will change size, SOMETIMES. I have not determined what the common denominator is for this to work, and so I can't say when it will or when it won't. But when it does work, it is very handy. Try it out.

    That's the history of discoveries...!

    Darwin doubt

    A report in the Independent suggests Darwin's theory of evolution may not be his at all.

    A pamphlet written in 1794 by James Hutton, a Scot regarded as the father of modern geology, has been found to contain a clear description of the process of natural selection, which underpins evolutionary theory.

    Professor Paul Pearson, of Cardiff University, tells the paper it is likely Hutton's ideas were still being discussed in Edinburgh when Darwin was there as a medical student and these may have resurfaced in his mind years later.

    I cannot remember the name of the theorem that states "Every theory or discovery that is named after a person was in fact discovered by someone else". I do remember that it is called somebody or other's theorem <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>
