Whoops, didn't mean to leave you folks hanging there without a fresh chatty like that. My bad, sorry. I hope we can still be friends. Here, I summarized today's news for you:

Lastly, I know World of Warcraft is big business and all, but ...a magazine? Really?

  • Exchange 2007 folks -- I've been asked to create a distribution list to which text messages can be sent, in the event of an emergency. All of the necessary individuals have mobile phone numbers associated with their mailboxes.

    How would I go about setting up a distribution list for text messaging? Each carrier requires it's own special prefix - how would I take that into account?
    Verizon: 10digitphonenumber@vtext.com
    AT&T: 10digitphonenumber@txt.att.net
    Sprint: 10digitphonenumber@messaging.sprintpcs.com
    T-Mobile: 10digitphonenumber@tmomail.net
    Nextel: 10digitphonenumber@messaging.nextel.com
    Cingular: 10digitphonenumber@cingularme.com
    Virgin Mobile: 10digitphonenumber@vmobl.com
    Alltel: 10digitphonenumber@message.alltel.com
    CellularOne: 10digitphonenumber@mobile.celloneusa.com
    Omnipoint: 10digitphonenumber@omnipointpcs.com
    Qwest: 10digitphonenumber@qwestmp.com

    The easy way to do this is to create a Mail Contact for each person's cell phone number. But AFAIK there's no way to link / associate a Mail Contact with a Mailbox, and I'd like to avoid duplicating objects, if possible.

  • I'm afraid to play dawn of discovery (or anno4 as we call it in the civilized world).
    The game tends to suck you in without you noticing how much time went by. you want to play a short amount of time and boom 5 hours went by without you noticing.

    In a way its like a combination of the settlers and simcity with a small portion of capitalism plus thrown in.

    the game has an aquarium effect on me. i tend to stare at the environment, look at all the nicely animated citizens and animals in the woods/sea. The pace of the game is also really relaxing.
    Games like starcraft stress me the fuck out but this has a civilization like zen to it.
