Outlook XP

I've finally given in, and am about to start using Outlook as my mail reader. It gave me all sorts of trouble tonight and I wasted a few hours with it. I was getting duplicate messages and they were all marked an hour earlier than they should have been. It turns out that the automatically adjust for Daylight Savings Time box wasn't checked and that caused most of the problem. An email with a huge file attachment was making the download time out as well adding to the problem. It looks like that's all settled now. Tomorrow I'll add my other email accounts to Outlook and see if trouble persists. Hopefully not! I still need to get ready for TODCON... Gonna be a long weekend! <sigh />

Happy Birthday

I've gone wireless and launched the new blog today. You can now comment on my posts even. You may notice that I've all the features of Dan's blog-o-matic too. Thanks Dan!

Happy birthday to Marion Kaltenschnee and Pete Hawkes from the Dreamweaver newsgroup! Turning out to be a better birthday than I expected. :-)

Sometimes I do get out...

I finally bought a new cordless phone, 2.4ghz. Seems crazy that my phone is 2.4ghz when my computer is only 1.7ghz... :-\ (Yes I realize that it is frequency vs. processor, but it just sounds weird.)

So I'm walking through Target, I'm pushing the shopping cart and when I let go to pick something off the shelf, my cart bumps into another cart. I told the guy I was sorry and he says to me "That's okay, I'll just hit yours back." and he bumped my cart gently and we both burst out laughing hysterically. His wife was stunned, glared at him and said "You're lucky she has a good sense of humor." I replied "No, you're lucky that he has a good sense of humor." She thought for a moment and answerred "You know, you're right?" Pretty funny, but I guess you had to be there.

Later we went to dinner for sushi. Gaetano all of a sudden tells me with pure excitement "Mama look at the princess." I asked him, "What princess? I don't see a princess." "Over there he answers," pointing to a goergeous blonde who very well could be Cinderella. It was adorable. I asked him to tell the princess hello but he didn't want to. "I don't want to say hi. I don't have money." I'm a little concerned about the second sentence, but it was so darn cute I had to tell the "princess".
