Outlook 2002 Holidays Update

Very annoying. The holidays in Outlook 2002 (aka Outlook XP) only extend through 2005. I guess that’s part of Microsoft’s planned obsolescence, but I need to schedule beyond 2005, and I intend to keep using Office XP as long as possible. Strangely, Microsoft released a calendar update for 2007, but only for Outlook 2000! Well,… Continue reading Outlook 2002 Holidays Update

TrackBack Ping Bookmarklet

I’ve made a TrackBack Ping Bookmarklet for Firefox — and mine actually works! Others I’ve seen don’t use the “post” method, which is required by the TrackBack specification.

And I also fixed the annoying always plural usage of “writebacks”… Continue reading Writeback Plus Modification

Statement of Purpose

There is no particular purpose to this blog other than to give me a chance to play around with the technology. I enjoy toying with technology, software, etc., and I’ve been fooling with creating websites since the first days of the Mosaic browser. Only one of these endeavors has led to anything fruitful — iNonsense,… Continue reading Statement of Purpose
