It Was Outlook's Fault

from the everything-goes-wrong dept

An amusing little story about a technology day from hell that all started because Outlook automatically accepted a meeting invite. What I don’t understand is (1) why the guy didn’t just tell the other folks that he couldn’t make the meeting once he realized what happened and (2) why he couldn’t buy new ink cartridges over the weekend. However, once you get beyond that, it is still an amusing story – mostly because it’s not you living through it.

Re: can't see the article

Hey, I’m sorry, but it works fine for me – so I really had no way of knowing how it would look for you. What I do with the site is try to find interesting news – not design it. I didn’t realize I had to submit all the news I found to you for approval before I posted it to the site. I do try to find news that is readable, but if it works okay for me, there’s really not much else I can do.

Besides, I think you should be complaining to IDG… since it is an IDG news story, and not me. I just link to the news. I didn’t design the page it was on.
