I don't know how Outlook keeps track of reminders, but something was corrupted.
Start --> Run; "outlook.exe /cleanreminders"

Lets be positive today, m’kay?
Once in a while I need to create a guide for users to accomplish some task or fix something on their computers. Taking screenshots, editing them, etc is a pita to be endured because that’s just the way it is.
What is Greenshot?
Greenshot is a light-weight screenshot software tool for Windows with the following key features:
Quickly create screenshots of a selected region, window or fullscreen; you can even capture complete (scrolling) web pages from Internet Explorer.Easily annotate, highlight or obfuscate parts of the screenshot.Export the screenshot in various ways: save to file, send to printer, copy to clipboard, attach to e-mail, send Office programs or upload to photo sites like Flickr or Picasa, and others.
Go feel the love.

I don’t know if I’ll post here regularly in the future, if ever. Maybe I’ll just throw something up here when the mood strikes, like now ‘fer instance.
I’m watching the news this week, keeping up on current events, politics, etc. and I just have to say…
The folk hurting kids, the politicians, the criminals… All you assholes out there:
That is all.

The purpose of this article is to lay out a general time management template for anyone who wants to jump in to programming and computer science with little or no experience in the field. A future article will flesh out the details, providing links to learning resources and other materials freely available online. [Edit: See the second article in the series, which covers learning benchmarks for beginner Python programmers.]
A few months back we took an in-depth look at MIT’s free online Introduction to Computer Science course, and laid out a self-study time table to complete the class within four months, along with a companion post providing learning benchmarks to chart your progress. In the present article, I'll step back and take a much more broad look at com-sci course offerings available for free on the internet, in order to answer a deceptively straightforward question: is it possible to complete the equivalent of a college bachelor’s degree in computer science through college and university courses that are freely available online? And if so, how does one do so?

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. —
Witnesses said a woman set a man's car on fire in Jacksonville after he refused to buy her a McFlurry at McDonald's.
There is a rule that goes something like “Only date a woman who’s a little crazier than you can handle…”
I should start writing these down.

There has been some pressure in there, off and on, for a month+. The ringing (Tinnitus?) is starting to be a problem. I don’t want to go to the Doc-in-a Box walk in clinic and spend who knows how long in the waiting room, so I called the local clinic conglomerate to make an appointment. Wading through the options I finally get a live person on the line.
Me: I’d like to schedule and appt.
Voice: Do you have a primary care physician?
Me: No, I just need to see someone about an possible ear infection.
Voice: I’ll transfer you to dsjfhdifasdfidfi (garbled), they have a list of doctors currently accepting new patients.
Me: Wait, I’m not looking for a new…
She transferred me. Bitch.
Robo-Operator: Thank you for calling blah blah blah if this is an emergency hang up and dial 911 blah blah.
Robo-Operator: Press 1 for something or other. Press 2 for infernal medicine something else. Press 3 for who-the-fuck-cares….
Robo-Operator: …Press 39 for…
And I hung up. Red took pity and called for me. In 3 minutes I had an appointment for tomorrow morning.
So pissed off right now…
