  10. Thanks, MSNwar, but my problem is the contacts pane only displays the envelope icons, not the online status ones, the way it used to. AAgh. UPDATE: Once again, the solution to a Windows problem is ....you guessed it... Reinstall the %^&*ing Windows Messenger. And it took me this long to remember. DUMB. Thanks, guys
  11. Actually, no, but thanks for taking the time to reply. better than a few certain someones I could name *cough Tris, Jeff Cough*. The problem is with WINDOWS messenger. My OE contacts pane used to display online status icons. no more.
  12. http://www.virtualplastic.net/ or http://wint.virtualplastic.net/ the place for such modifications.
  13. Try http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/. She's an MVP, and I think there's an appwiz fix on her site.
  14. I don't know if it was the beta of kerio personal firewall or what, but when I run Outlook Express, the list of contacts does NOT display online status, just those stupid little envelope icons. So what sort of connection \port\wtf?\ do I enable to get them back?
  15. You'd have to be this side of the pond. and (ha ha) you're not. Welcome back. PS: I agree with Rev.
  16. It's about friggin' time. Mars is viewable this week. So we all get to see Tris' homeplanet. If I had to hold that one for 1 more day, I was gonna pop!
  17. Both. (I'm a native of NYC, and my father was Danish.) I lived through the first (1965) and 2nd (1977) blackouts, so this time it was just "Here we go again" and "When will those morons learn not to route everything through the same wire?" As to what started it, "Who farted?"
  18. Substitute Mr for Mrs, and I'm in the same situation. In Rob's case, it's wrestling.
  19. Go to the animal shelter and adopt a cat. (Well, SOMONE had to say it. Must I do everything around here?)
  20. from Paul Thurrott, News Editor, thurrott@winnetmag.com: Last week, Microsoft held its annual financial analysts meeting, which always provides a wellspring of information for people interested in how the company has performed and what it plans for the coming years. I'm still pouring over the videos, transcripts, and Microsoft PowerPoint presentations that came out of the event, but here are some interesting numbers I was able to cull so far, in no particular order Microsoft is increasing its research and development funding in fiscal year 2004 by 8 percent. Microsoft has shipped 130 million Windows XP licenses; 70 percent are XP Professional Edition. PC sales grew 3 percent in the past year, but Microsoft's client business grew 11 percent; overall, Microsoft grew 13 percent year-over-year, thanks largely to Licensing 6.0 and users migrating to XP Pro. Microsoft said 350 million PCs still run Windows NT or Windows 9x. Windows and Linux are the only server platforms that will grow market share over the next year. Currently, Windows Server owns 53.1 percent of the server market, compared with 16.7 percent for Linux. Next year, the mix will be roughly 53.7 percent to 19.2 percent--in Windows' favor. Windows Server sales grew 7.7 percent in fiscal year 2003, compared with 19.2 percent for Linux. Today, 37 percent of developers use Microsoft .NET, compared with 34 percent for Java (a year ago the ratio was 25:30). More than 2.5 million developers use .NET technologies. Microsoft has sold more than 150 million Microsoft Exchange Server seats worldwide. Approximately 500 million cell phones are in use worldwide. 25 million unique users visit Microsoft Office Online each month. Microsoft has shipped 9.4 million Xboxes; each customer buys an average of 5 software titles for the device, and Xbox Live has more than 500,000 paid subscribers. Microsoft Office System products that aren't part of the core Office suite earn the company more than $1 billion each year. Microsoft Project alone generated $500 million in revenue in the past year. Microsoft applied for 1500 patents in fiscal year 2003. Almost half of the email that goes through Hotmail's servers--or 2.4 billion messages every day--is spam; in 2001, it was only 8 percent. Spam costs about a penny to send--and a dollar to receive; Microsoft estimates spam is a $10 billion-a-year problem for the industry. MSN Messenger is the largest free Instant Messaging (IM) service on the planet, and more than 9 million people are using the service concurrently at any given time. Google currently indexes only 30 percent to 40 percent of all Web sites. More than 80 million people worldwide access the Internet with a broadband connection. More than 70 percent of all time online is spent communicating with email and IM; less than 30 percent is spent browsing the Web. http://list.winnetmag.com/
