Maya 2012: Changing channelBox decimal places (precision)

Most maya users know that you can use more decimal places then Maya displays by default.
For example, it is possible to translate an object by 1.11111 although maya will display "1.111".
When you use getAttr, it will return the correct values, but to display in the channel box, very simply under Edit in the channelBox go settings -> Change Precision...
Simple as, decimal places range from 1 to 15.

Outlook 2010 - Filter e-mails between specific dates

Sounds to be much simpler than it should be (tbh only really searched for a few minutes), but...
Say you want to filter your emails between dates?
Atm, a specific date was easy enough, but between dates seemed more hassle and the only way I could see was to create a new search filter.
Under "Search" tab, search Tools -> Advanced Find, then "Advanced" tab - and under Define more criteria dropdown select "Date/Time Fields" -> "Received", Condition to "Between", and Value to "<start Date> and  <end Date>" then under "Browse", make sure you check "Include Subfolders", then "Find Now".
It was a pain in the ass, and would love to hear a simpler way of doing it...
