And the CD-ROM you rode in on

I am being gaslighted by (*#$&(*$# Microsoft Outlook.

STOP IT STOP IT STOP IT STOP IT STOP IT. I have work to do!!!!

And then it does. Any time someone else looks at it. Which makes it, as brainiacfive terms it, a Heisenbug.

That line in "Five Times" about Coreen muttering imprecations against Microsoft, and how if anyone with the wrong kind of knowledge were to put power and intent behind half of what was coming out of her mouth, the global economy would be a smoldering ruin by noon the next day? Was inspired by the LAST time this happened.

:: ponders headlines for the last few days ::

Not that the global economy seems to need any help, mind you.

Back to getting some of this stuff done while it's behaving...

It was good for something, then. Glad to know. :-)

I do find it hilarious -- in a headdesky sort of way -- that it turns out this particular form of Outlook going berserk is caused by a conflict with files left from earlier versions of itself.
