This just showed up free for me right now, I'm guessing it will be for the rest of you also.  The first and third books are discounted, weird, they usually try to lure you in by making the first one free.

Every since Patch Tuesday this week this error has been plaguing my company.  I want to say it's only Outlook 2010, but one person - in the IT department no less is reporting something on 2013 that I'm not 100% certain is the same thing.  The Macs appear unaffected, the Office 2007 people haven't made a peep.

We've found that deleting the OST, running a repair on Office (in add-remove programs) and doing another Windows Update appears to fix things, but I'm not sure that fix will "stick".

Has anyone else been running into this mess?  Find a better fix that the really time consuming one we've been doing?

Looks like getting rid of KB2956128 fixes it.

Any other wheel builders out there? Might need to bounce this off of you.

So I've got my new 8 Speed wheel nearly built. I've got all the lacing done, but I'm a bit worried. I used two different spoke calculators, the one I've used before said I needed 255 and some change mm spoke and the other said I needed 253 and some change spokes. Since this is a gear hub the dishing is minimal and despite some fractional differences in the calculator they can realistically be the same size.

I went with 255's hoping the "some change" from the first one would be handled in the nipple and the other one might have the right idea. Turns out they're on the long side, should have gone with 253s. I've got them pulled up so tight the tips of the spokes are just coming through the nipples on the inside of the rim.  I'm thinking the newest model hub is probably a little different than the prior 8's from Shimano, my exact model wasn't a choice on the calculators so I used a similar model - in both calculators.  (The exact rim model was in one of them fortunately)

To top it off I went looking for 253's on Amazon and only found one box, they were the expensive kind but in a reasonable range. 254's are plentiful. I'm not sure 1mm will really be the difference I need considering the nature of the beast, but I'm not sure I'll be able to true the rim properly. 252's are readily available, but I'm worried that might be on the short side. Considering the nipples are 12mm and all of the spokes are nearly at the end I'm assuming 252's would be alright but not sure if I want to take the financial and time gamble to find out.  Does anyone have enough experience in this to tell me "sure the nipple will handle it" my gut tells me 252's will be safe but I'll defer to experience.  For reference the spokes are just  poking through and they're not exactly "resonantly" tight.

The PC version of Street Fighter 2.  I couldn't get it to even fully launch, and I tried it on a half dozen systems and even hunted down the patches.  Complete crap, but arguably it couldn't be placed on the list because I never actually played it.

I found this short infomercial for the Fire Phone.  They didn't say it, but I heard "The Amazon Fire Phone, we're targeting the audience that even the iPhone hasn't been dumbed down far enough for."
Amazon's first smartphone is now available, but is it good enough to compete with top-tier handsets that are offered at the same price?

Governments from Around the World Admit They Do It!
There are many documented false flag attacks, where a government carries out a terror attack … and then falsely blames its enemy for political purposes.
In the following 42 instances, officials in the government which carried out the attack (or seriously proposed an attack) admits to it, either orally or in writing:

Anyone know where to get a Thunderbolt to fiber adapter?  Best I've found are the pre-made things that I really don't want to deal with, I've got a path I need to run something like this down, and there's already two pairs of FC multimode fibers I could re-purpose.  This is also an incredibly difficult run that I wouldn't want to have to pull these through, even though the one I'm linking to might just make it.  All I can find when I do searches are SAN adapters, not really what I'm after, we've already got the SAN handled.

Slightly on the expensive side. Five Guys and Mooyah have just as good of burgers if not better for cheaper, but this place has a "real restaurant" atmosphere where those other two feel more fast food. My only complaint about eating at this (or other Fudruckers) is my fellow patrons. For instance I just left a few minutes ago, there were two women looking at the soda dispenser like it was alien technology and they just stood in front of the thing and stared. Finally after a few minutes they got out of the way, sans soda. When they paged me to get my burger the same two women were staring at the condiment dispensers the same way. (Sadly this part of the review was written before they put in the newer touch-screen soda dispensers) I don't mean to pick on these two women, this happens every time I'm there. There is always someone who seems to not have the slightest idea how to work a salad bar or a pump dispenser and they're always just ahead of you, every time you turn around. At least the staff is great and I don't think they've ever messed up my order, which is better than I can say about most places. It would also be nice if they had a bike rack for me to park at, as it stands I chain my bike to a pole in the middle of their bushes. I had to knock a star off because the "red spice" - I'm not sure what it is - that every single other Fuddruckers I've been to has is not available at this location and hasn't been in years. If you ask for it someone might hunt down a shaker - they blame it on theft, usually walk around the place, look at every table and the fixin's bar where it should be, but it's never there, it wasn't there when they opened that day, I don't know why they look.
