'Since the assignment is on the easy side, you should implement the delete function.'

Does should mean we must or we can if we want? So ambigious.

I suspect my mail is broken because Microsoft has yet to figure out how to talk to my secure mail server.
[10:52:56 PM] []

I just installed Office XP hoping for a new feature in Outlook. The feature is:

When I get mail I don't care about (i.e. from any of the 10 mailing lists I'm currently subscribed to) I don't want a noise to be played or the enevelope to appear on my task bar.

I want the noise/envelope reserved for important emails.

Alas. Such simple functionality still does not exist in Outlook. But I did have to hand fix all my rules because for some reason it couldn't upgrade them. It's also messed up my email accounts (I have 4) and now I can send test messages but not real emails. UGH!

I hate Microsoft.

I know some people can't so no to Microsoft but I sure could. Well I'd never apply for a job there in the first place. I'd be too afraid on the first day of work that I'd go in there and just go pyscho (I would describe the pyscho rampage that might insue but everyday we lose more and more freedoms so maybe I'd go to jail for saying some of the things I want to say). Other places I couldn't work at for fear of going pyscho: Rogers (any of their divisions), Bell (any of their divisions), the Royal Bank, and obviously U-Haul.

You're thinking, 'So Matt could say no to a lucrative job offer but can't say no to running their software?'. Correct. All I can say for myself is that me and Microsoft have one bad dysfunctional relationship.

For a brief moment Metafilter had a link to something very distrubing. More disturbing than bonsai kitten or the kitten video on stile project (I'm purposely not linking to anything..). If you think you can stomach something more disturbing than that you know where to find me.

Today Slashdot has a discussion on a a Penny per Page payment system. Oliver Willis also has an idea for a content payment system.

Of course John and Matt have more than ideas. We've actually built something but we don't yet have the free time to launch it.. Ugh.

We could pull a Fairtunes (i.e. quit jobs/drop out of school to pursue what appears to be a popular idea but turns out to not be as wildly popular as you imagined it to be) but I think we've learned our lesson. The other option is to hire a co-op student to finish it for us but we are not yet fabulously rich.
