So, I just paid for Twitterific after using it for at least a few months. I am a fan of try-before-you-buy and and advocate of paying for software that I use.

Yesterday afternoon I posted Date bug in Entourage 2008 causes birthday information loss on the Entourage Help Blog. This post required me to do some detailed testing with dates ranging all the way from 1899 to 2050 and determining the specific days of the week for these dates.

Enter the cal command in the Terminal!

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.

Diane asked me a year ago to contribute to the Exchange section on The Entourage Help Page but since we started The Entourage Help Blog I've been pretty neglectful.

For several months I've wanted a page dedicated to Microsoft KB articles that I and others could quickly reference. Finally, I've posted the page and to my surprise it grew to more than 40 references. I was expecting about 15-20 at most.
