How to Delete a Recurring iCal Event

I have finally resolved an issue with my Mac OS X 10.5.7 iCal calendar that has been annoying me since I converted from PC to Mac almost exactly one year ago. For some reason I could not delete my birthday! Because I’m now using Address Book birthdays — instead of having unique iCal “events” for […]

2008 – 2009 iCal College Bowl Schedule

Update: Visit collegefootballcalendar.net to subscribe to the latest college football bowl schedule! I couldn’t find one anywhere at Yahoo!

You should be able to click that link to “subscribe” to the calendar, which […]

Faceted Email Browsing

Seek allows for ‘faceted browsing’ of email and looks, pretty much, like the coolest thing to hit email since the @ symbol. It’s Thunderbird only, though. At this point I don’t know if it would be possible for me to abandon Outlook. The email functionality I could take or leave, but the address book and […]

Outlook 2007 Is a Memory Hog

When I got my new laptop a few weeks ago I thought it was pretty cool that it came with Office 2007. The nifty new toolbars and embedded wavey swooshes are slick. I don’t really mind that by default Word and Excel assume you want to save files with a .docx or .xlsx extension. (That’s […]

How to Open Outlook Attachments

A friend of mine sent me a link to an iTunes song he thought I’d like. Of course I was unable to open it because it came delivered as an attachment. (Cue scary music.) Microsoft thinks that I can’t possibly be trusted to not open some flesh-eating virus, so by default Outlook blocks everything. It’s […]

Email Should Always Be Plain Text

Zeldman does a spectacular job explaining why I hate when people use Word as their email editor.

Florida Football Schedule

The schedule for the University of Florida 2007 football season has been published. You can find it at the University Athletic Association website. They even give you the ability to import the schedule directly into Outlook! It took me a few minutes to find it, of course. There is just a lot of stuff cluttering […]

Turn On Links

One of the world’s worst, most-annoying spam-prevention systems is the one in my current version of Outlook — Microsoft® Outlook® 2003 (11.8002.6568) SP2. I’d say about one out of every three times I attempt to click on a link in an email, I get a warning telling me that all links in the message have […]

College Bowl Schedule

Update: Visit collegefootballcalendar.net to subscribe to the latest college football bowl schedule! You have got to be kidding me. This is just about the coolest thing ever. A few weeks ago I lamented that there was no place where I could go to import the entire NCAA College Football Bowl schedule into my Outlook calendar. […]

I Like Presents

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! This is when everyone starts asking me, “So what do you want for Christmas?” Every year my answer is the same. “I don’t really want anything. I need cash. If you have a burning desire to buy me a gift, check out my Amazon wishlist.” To make […]

HideOutlook

Trust me. You want to go get HideOutlook from r2 studios. This little app is great! It lets you minimize Outlook to the system tray instead of the taskbar. Click the icon in the systray and Outlook pops open or closed; right-click it and you can create new email messages, appointments, etc. Very hep. And […]

Outlook

It really bugs me that the Rules system in Outlook Express is so much better than the one in Outlook. Why would that be? Isn’t Outlook supposed to be the full-featured, super-duper version? Isn’t Outlook Express supposed to be the scaled-down, free version? I’m using Outlook 2000 and Outlook Express 6 at home and at […]

Outlook Rules

Does anyone know if it’s possible to modify the rules in MS Outlook 2000 with a text editor? The “Rules Wizard” is just too annoying for me. It can’t handle any sort of boolean statements and I hate the way it ‘sorts’ the ‘order’ in which it ‘processes’ the ‘rules’. I’ve been looking hither and […]

Visual Basic Code to Send Outlook eMail

Yeah. So. Gotta little bug here. Can anyone tell me how to force Outlook to send a message formatted as plain text instead of in the user’s default format in VB? The only information I can find is about the OlEditorType, but that is apparently read-only unless I force the mail object to have HTMLBody […]

I Want

Y’know what I want? I want to be able to drop my cell phone into a docking cradle – like I do with my Visor – and have it just suck up all my phone numbers from Outlook. Is that too much? Why can’t I do that? … the hell …
