    Yes, I hate April Fools’ Day.

    • 0 Comments

    Federal budget math shows up in OneDrive?

    • 0 Comments
    I’m not sure what to make of this, but it was amusing (to me): I was curious about why my PC suddenly started skipping tunes in Zune (yeah, I know) and losing keystrokes in InDesign. Apparently it was because OneDrive was re-uploading the entire contents...
