I don't believe this is correct any more. The Office Watch newsletter was started by Woody Leonhard back the 1990s under the name Woody's Office Watch or "WOW", as a spinoff from his Woody's Window Watch ("WWW") newsletter. In the last few years Woody wanted to ease himself out of the role as primary editor, and Windows Watch eventually was merged into Brian Livinston's Windows Secrets newsletter and website, to which Woody still occasionally contributes.
To the best of my knowledge Woody is no longer involved with any of the newsletters he started except as an occasional contributor. I do note that the "From" header for the Office for Mere Mortals (OfMM) newsletter still displays the email address wow -dot- robot -at- woodyswatch -dot- com although all the other admin and editorial contact info use the post-Woody office-watch.com domain name. As far as I know, Woody's main activity these days (other than continuing to write and co-author big, fat books on Office and Windows for several of the big computer book publishers) is the website AskWoody.com, which is a worthwhile visit.
