Fortunately, now I'm not office based, some of those banes upon the internet are no longer encountered.

All have been at some point though. The marketing firm that thought it a good plan to send their presentation, unsolicited, as a 10Meg .exe file when dial up was still common still stands out as "too stupid for words" though.

Ah yes... That particular bit of [censored] forced me to find out how to delete emails without downloading it.

Mind you "Downloading" an email is a dying art. These days, you "Sync" them. (Which Microsoft now claims is their invention INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY).

Really? I mean, it's basically IMAP writ large, it's hardly a new idea, and MS used to try to get people to not use IMAP.

And yes, finding out the company webmail login admin password to fix that particular problem was useful, but the IT guy was an on call consultant, so they trusted it to the only employee that liked computers...

Oh it was more like "telnet into the server using the POP port, and use *this* command to delete the email."

Microsoft is now suing Android phone people for infringing a specific number of their unspecified patents, just like they did with Linux. They are also selling pardons to phone makers who stick Windows 7 on their phone.

Thanks... I will be adding that URL as a PS beneath my signature to certain correspondents.

You'd better copy the image into your signature, in case your respondents can't see the original.
