    If we have more than ten (non-VBAX-staff) members we will be giving away two books. Less than ten will only garner one given away. Everyone else is encouraged to buy it (the link is on my web page at www.linkemup.us/outlookbook) and tell all of your friends to buy the book.

    I think some of the times shown may not be correct

    3:00 PM GMT =
    London 4:00 PM 10/3
    Moscow 7:00 PM 10/3
    Tokyo 12:00 AM 10/2
    Sydney 2:00 AM 10/2
    Honolulu 6:00 AM 10/2
    Seattle 8:00 AM 10/2
    New York 11:00 AM 10/2

    GMT 3:00 pm Saturday October 2 is, I think,

    London 4:00pm Saturday October 2
    Moscow 7:00pm Saturday October 2
    Tokyo 12:00 midnight Saturday/Sunday October 2/3
    Sydney 1:00am Sunday October 3
    Honolulu 5:00am Saturday October 2
    Seattle 8:00am Saturday October 2
    New York 11:00am Saturday October 2

    also (for Dennis)
    Stockholm 5:00pm Saturday October 2

    Perhaps locals could confirm
    Enjoy,
    Tony

    That reminds me of a joke I heard:

    How do you tell the difference between singular and plural when talking to a southerner?

    Y'all = singular
    All y'all = plural

    :rofl

    I'll try to get to the chat as well!

    Sound like an excellent idea to be reminded but when trying to access the "click here"-links nothing happends.

    Is it only for US-citizens

    BTW, when will it be possible to access the chatroom via Linux and with the browser FireFox

    All the very best from,
    Dennis
    Kind regards,

    The link should work now. Not like I wanted it to, tho.

    Hi, Zack. These requirements sound out of date and seem to be for Mac OS 9. MS has not updated IE for Mac for 2-3 years.


    Perhaps you should refer to OS X web browsers:

    Safari (standard on OS X after 10.2)
    Netscape 7
    Mozilla 1.8
    FireFox
    Camino

    And I believe that standard OS X installation of these browsers includes the Java Enabled.


    ---------------

    Just in case there is another Mac user out there! :rofl

    It might not quite be 3.00 pm GMT but isn't this supposed to be now.
    I can't get into the chat room - is it just me?
    Enjoy,

    Just to let everyone know, I thought the discussion this morning very helpful. I have been using Outlook at work for five years, but I learned several valuable tips.

    Special "Thank You" to Steve for his time and knowledge.

    I'd like to echo shades' comments. In a poorly attended chat Steve was the perfect host and a mine of information.

    Thanks, Steve.
    Enjoy,
    Tony

    Poor attendance made it easy to do the "pick a number" thing to give the book away, though.

    It was fun, although I was definitely hoping for better attendance.

    Any suggestions for how to achieve that? It would be nice to hear from those who were unable to attend on that idea.
