plus and minus


Let’s start with… minuses first

– After searching how to make the best of Outlook© and provide those who ride the shuttle every day with a tool to prevent last minute panic I threw the towel this week and am ready to use another vehicule as often as possible. Some simply refused to play along and I don’t want to go into detailing why; it’s just too petty.
– Second strange refusal of an excellent way to, again, make the best of … Outlook, yet again. And again I don’t understand the lack of cooperation and total absence of spirit of sharing an information, any information, just in case someone else might profit from it. I’ve even been said: these new tools tend to kill communication between people… better hear this than being deaf, barely though.


– I think my database is starting to be convincing enough that others, outside the department, expressed interest in it.
– I attended a meeting with HB, head manager of the site. I feel more comfortable now: this ship has a captain. He might not be very sympathetic or warm but… that’s not what matters.

the maid

I hired a maid for a one hour clean up of my place each week.

It's a discussion between two colleagues that made me think it might be worth giving it a try.

First maid I've ever hired.

I've debated and resisted tidying and cleaning up before she'd come: a stranger is to visit my place, I don't want to give a bad impression… It's only natural but rather stupid.

She starts tomorrow.

spinning class

I'm still alive, after my first spinning class.

I felt kind of feverish afterward, sensitive to cold temperatures outside. I know, from experience, after training for the ride earlier this year, that I didn't drink enough.

Hopefully weather won't prevent me from regularly attending the class. It was a close call this afternoon when the sky broke loose just one hour before the session.

You don't work out for two months, it's as if you'd never worked out… ever *sigh*

IE7

Just downloaded the last version of IE (I belong to the minority that doesn't consider Microsoft evil).

Among other, nice I'm sure, features there are tabs now. At last…

The first 'other' window I opened on a new tab exhibited a message explaining what tabs consist of.

I actually read from top to bottom in case tabs on IE7 would act differently.

Nope!

Surprisingly naive of Microsoft to think we, users, do not … shop around.

Prudishness

Something that's particularly neat on Youtube® that I found out only recently: the possibility to play a list of videos instead of one after another.

Unless someone decided the video was questionnable in terms of content.

In which case the program stops to ask whether it is Ok to proceed.

I understand the cautiousness from people at Youtube™ but why do I have to be impacted by someone else's prudishness. I'm not saying they're wrong, I'm just saying they and I may regard matters differently.

And I don't see why my list of videos should stop playing because of them.

Period.
