I accidentally discovered something amusingly inane.

If you have a Windows box, right-click on the Recycle Bin, and 'Create Shortcut'.
Then, drag-n-drop the shortcut you created (it'll be on the desktop somewhere) into the Recycle Bin.

Continue to do that for as long as you're amused.

Did you try to drag the recycle bin over the shortcut to recycle bin?

I hadn't tried that, no.

It's still a testament to the disconnect at MS, though, that, even with Windows 7, the Recycle Bin only works for objects in the GUI. Delete a file from the Command Prompt and it's gone!

Which is good.

Because if I want to delete a file with no fuss, I go to the command prompt.
Otherwise, Windows Explorer occasionally likes to freak out and hang its head in complete indecision about your request to delete a file, copy it, or move it to some location (network or otherwise).

Fucking Microsoft.

That is all.

I wouldn't recommend doing that, Ragnar. You might catch a virus. :P

I just guffawed out loud in the middle of a conference call.

Hmm ... conference calls ... using Windoze ... dunno which is more unpleasant!

For those of us who don't use Windoze, please explain what the "recycle bin trick" does?

hm, using lync and some good headset connected to your wintendo isn't that bad after all for a telco.

microsoft managed to successfully embrace & extend here; its a wild mashup of video / voip, xmpp and your outlook inbox.

I think they currently only do big cooperate deployments.

When the siemens attemp to replace the POT with voip ended up with everyone using their mobile instead to stop the pc/phoneconnection from crashing, experiences with lync aren't remotely as bad. Its using the company phonebook, so you can search for collegues you want to phone/chat/conference/desktop share...

you can even send outlook invitation mails for meetings containing URLs spawning lync and making it join the conference. While its opening the internet exploiter inbetween, and its a shabby slow cludge its a working solution.

How dare you insult AOL by comparing Windows 8 to them.

Subject: Office 2013 to support being an ActiveSync client?

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Well, this is interesting.

This is the "Add Account" screen for Outlook 2013.  For those of you who can't see the screenshot: the choices are:

  • Microsoft Exchange Server or compatible service
  • ActiveSync
  • POP/IMAP

The words "or compatible service" in the first choice, and the fact that the second choice exists in Outlook, seems to indicate that Microsoft has finally given up on their efforts to make Exchange the only server that has full functionality with Outlook.

Either they've realized that the compatible software is so good now that there's no point, or they're comfortable with Exchange's market share, or perhaps they think they can make more money on ActiveSync patent licenses.

In any case it's good news for Citadel because when we finish our Z-Push back end we'll have full compatibility with not only every major smartphone and tablet, but also Outlook 2013.  I was planning on building an OpenChange back end eventually, but now maybe there's no need.

Subject: Mainstream windows 8 bashing

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

I just love it that the mainstream news media agrees with me about windows 8 sucking.

I just saw this on FoxNews

http://www.foxnews.com/tech/2012/10/19/early-look-at-windows-8-baffles-consumers/?intcmp=features

and

http://www.foxnews.com/tech/2012/10/16/why-can-ignore-windows-8/

 

 I think just about the most damning thing I've read yet on windows 8 was the quote from the first link:

"It was very difficult to get used to," he said. "I have an 8-year-old and a 10-year-old, and they never got used to it.

They were like, `We're just going to use Mom's computer."'

Hah, even the kids can't get used to it!

I can see that I'm going to enjoy dealing with that operating system someday.
