  • Blog Post: Mouse Mischief – make your presentations even more interactive.

    A while ago I blogged about PowerPoint and highlighted some of the great resources that are available, such as Plex for PowerPoint for example.

    One of my new Year’s resolution is to get fit again; I suspect many of you have a similar resolution. Well, it's not going to be workout videos for me.
