Today was travel day for our mini summit at the MacBU and the day long travel (mostly waiting at the airports) ended with a 7:00 p.m. dinner of 10 at a local restaurant called Matt's in Redmond Town Center.

Just finished an AppleScript for Entourage 2008 to add week numbers to the default calendar.

The script actually creates all-day events with each set to “Free” status and includes each Sunday’s ordinal date.

Diane at The Entourage Help Page asked me whether or not we should start a mailing list for Entourage questions. The mailing list would be a companion to the EHP and the blog. My first reaction was that the community already had the Entourage-Talk list and we shouldn’t duplicate efforts.

However, after several months of seeing the list go dead due to hardware and other issues, I agreed that we should probably proceed with something ourselves.

My geek vacation

|

We're only allowed to accrue 150% vacation time at work and I, having only been there 3-1/2 years, get two weeks every year. My three co-workers have all been with our company more than five years and two have more than 10 years invested time. We all find taking vacation time very difficult. We just don't think about it or just find that we don't need it right now.

MVC-013S.JPGThis week I'm burning 40 hours but I have a plan. Apart from taking my cat Mitch to the vet to get a tooth pulled, I'm doing geek things that I've been wanting to do for months. They include installing MoveableType for this blog, installing MediaWiki for my website and learning better ways to use Twitter. Of course, I kicked off the week with the WWDC keynote on Monday.
