    I use a hotmail account.  I got it a really long time ago and now I'm stuck with it.  If it had a feature to forward email I would have switched a long time ago and had it forward to something else, but it doesn't so I'm trapped.  The new Windows Live Mail is a very good interface, but I prefer to not use a website to check my email when I'm at home so instead I use Outlook 2007, which by the way seems to be extremely slow even after I install a patch that was suppose to speed things up.

    Anyways, ever since I switched to 2007 from Outlook 2003 I continuously get a prompt for my hotmail userid and password even when I click the remember password button.  It was a huge annoyance and it finally got to me enough today to do some Googling.  Here is the patch that appears to resolve the issue.

    Things were even worse this past week when I couldn't even log into my hotmail account with Outlook, for some reason, and I was forced to use the web interface, but it appears that issue is finally resolved.  Anyone know what was going on?  I'm sure eventually I will be annoyed enough to switch my email address, but until then at least I don’t get prompted for my password anymore. (Knock on wood.)

Well I started Twittering last night.  (Would that be the proper wording for it?)  Twitter is a site that allows you to setup a page and post short message too it, similar to a blog, but the messages have to be under 140 characters.  You can post from the website, instant messenger, or a text message from your cell phone.  Basically intended to keep friends up to date on where you are or what you are doing.  I'm using it to vent throughout the day about work and life, hence the reason I haven't posted the link to my Twitter account because I just may be venting a short message about you, but feel free to try and find it.  In general it seems like Twitter is a general waste of space and time, but I also see where it could come in handy.  It would be interesting to try Twittering a diet or spending habbits.  It would also be nice to have all you friends on Twitter to know when individuals are as bored as you or up late at night, so that you know who you can bug.

     On Wednesday night I learned a pretty cool trick at the .NET Usergroup meeting when Jon von Gillern was giving his presentation on RegEx.  When selecting text in some applications like Visual Studio if you hold down the ALT key you can select a vertical column.

Selected Vertical Column


     This is one of those things that you would probably never know about unless someone told you, so now you know.
