Small joys

If anyone's wondering why I haven't posted much in a while, it's 8:40 pm and I'm still stuck in my office in deepest Bellevue. Crazy, crazy workload right now. In this weakened state, it was a mis-addressed email that almost sent me over the edge. I can't live without the stupid auto-complete function in Outlook (it would take 3x as long to address my mails) but I can't live with it pulling up every damn David I've ever emailed when I just want to ping Smithlet.

So I Googled for a few minutes and, bless the Lord, finally learned how to edit the Outlook email-address autocomplete list. And it's so easy I wanted the cry--you just highlight an offending name in the drop down and... press delete. Looking at the comments on the linked page, I'm not the only frustrated by the very un-Microsoft simplicty of this approach.

Still, it made my day. And that, my friends, is a sad comment on my day.
