Excellent infographic... Do you know what is the other man-made structure visible from space (apart from China's Great Wall)?

My Macbook Air needs to go in for repairs so I need to use a Windows laptop for a while... I am unable to find a free tool that converts my Outlook 2011 for Mac .olm file to Outlook for Windows .pst file. Nothing from Apple and nothing from Microsoft. You'd think at least Microsoft would want to provide a utility for users that want to switch from Mac to Windows (albeit temporarilly). Any ideas?

Forget it. Don't use a PST file stay with the OST file on the server. You will waste days trying to find a solution and there simply isn't one.

Took the boys to see Cars 2 tonight. It is an incredible movie with strong 007 themes, hints of the Bourne Identity, parallels to The Fast and the Furious, and awesomeness akin to Vin Diesel in xXx. Global scenes... Tokyo, Paris, London, while maintaining it's ties to Radiator Springs. Respectful reference to the late Paul Newman (aka Doc Hudson). Explosive race scenes, pyrotechnics, romance, moral lessons and razor-sharp humor. Certain to be enjoyed by young and old for many years. Only minor let-down is the sound track, but there is waaaayyy too much action for a meaningful track.

Sounds fun! I assume the boys (at least Aiden) loved it?
