Your error report has an error

It's hard to find news on Live Search Local - the Microsoft phone search app - by searching on Google. One thing you do find is a page saying you can report local listings to such-and-such an email address. Which bounces.

Bad Microsoft. NO BISCUIT!

Which reminds me that the other day I was amused to find Gmail treating my Google alert as spam...

talking of gmail ;-) there's a query waiting for you there, re two figures in the accounts which Companies House thinks should be the same amount and aren't, which has it kicking its little legs in the air and refusing to play

Reminds me of my very first programming class, lo these many years ago, when somebody in the class got an error from the compiler that, when looked up in the table that maps error numbers to messages, said something to the effect of "there is no error number defined for this error".

Another no-buscuit moment.

I've just had reason to wish to send an email which will NOT arrive until some time tomorrow evening.

I found an option to a new mail item in Outlook. "Do not deliver before" with a time/date parameter. Oooh. Ideal. Clickity. It means the email will arrive from an unexpected address (I don't use outlook for my main mail) but the recipient will cope with that.

Compose, add address, click send... off it goes to the outlook outbox.

and
there
it
stays.

The option clearly says "do not deliver before X" but actually it turns out it means "do not SEND before X". Which isn't *quite* the same thing, as it now becomes important for me to ensure Outlook remains running on my machine or is running once more come tomorrow evening when the item is to be sent...
