Recent docs only works if uou open or save a file while word or excel is open. If you open it by double clicking the filename instead of the <open> in the menu and then dont make any changes to the file, you wont see it in recent files even if you have word installed on your computer. And of course you would need to be signed into word for it to know which user you are to provide a recent file list.
When you say word being open, you mean Word Online, right?  Sorry if that's a stupid question.

The Case Against Quantum Computers. (No word if his criticism also applies to using "quantum" with regard to past/future lives, portals, unicorns, UFOs, Bigfeet, or demons....)

I'm sure if some scientists somewhere got a quantum computer working to mine cryptocurrency, they would tell the world immediately! Right after monkeys flew out of their butts!

That's a great article. I don't necessarily agree that 99.99999% is necessary for ground vehicles--but that's what would be mandatory for flying cars, and that's what consumer-grade fully automated vehicles are heading towards.

It seems obvious to me that Elon is the scapegoat for the industry that wants to use 1% of the driving population as expendable crash-test dummies, so I don't agree with the author's conclusions--except about the lying psychopath part. Mostly spot-on there.
