You’ve may have already tried this, but just in case:

Potential fix is toward the bottom.

I think this is the latest I’ve ever checked into a Hobbit Hole thread. *waves* I’m still alive, though rather feverish tonight. Was home sick from work today, and I’m beginning to think I won’t make tomorrow, either. Which kinda stinks considering how little off-time I have saved up at the moment. I’d like to hunt down whoever gave me this whatever-it-is.

OK, and you just posted that you did exactly what I posted you should do. Never mind.

Did you apply all service packs?

Yeah, we did the Windows updates. It looks like the problem is due to Outlook 2000 relying on Outlook Express components, which Vista doesn’t have.

Tonight I got her set up with Thunderbird instead. It was a bit of a hassle getting everything imported from Outlook on the old computer, but it worked. :)

You're still using Office 2000?

Do you still write on clay tablets too? ;^P

I just think it’s funny that half of us want a PG version for the kids, and half want the PG version so we can show it to our parents. :~D

Yep, tis true. I know how uncomfortable our college aged kids are watching sexy scenes in movies when they're with us. EEK!

The language hasn't been an issue since Joseph was 13 or so. We just informed them that they were gonna hear stuff said that we didn't allow in our house. They were cool with that, and it opened up a wide range of movie possibilities.

We wanted to see Panic Room, and read the review at a site that gave LOTS of info to parents looking to make decisions about movies. The site said that the "F" word was spoken 56 times. We told Joseph this before the movie, again with the reminder that we don't use the word in our house. It was a very good movie, and at the end of it, Joseph informed us that they actually used the word 65 times. Heh.

I don’t say that word either, unless I see you-know-who speak.

Following the misunderstanding of their "claymore hitch cover", GG&G has come out with another gag gift that should have fewer legal ramifications:

There was a ‘misunderstanding’ about the trailer hitches? They looked great to me. The salt and pepper should get them going at the company lunchroom...

Good Lord!

The First new Law and Order show of the season has them prosecuting Vice President Cheney for War Crimes! More directly they are prosecuting former Justice Department official Chu, for his memos regarding harsh interrogation techniques, and everybody up the chain of command (How they got Cheney in the chain of command I don't know). I have always liked L&O despite its bias, but this is unacceptable. Amusingly they have an Obama justice official defending the Bush folks.

Makes me kinda glad we don't watch that show.

The first new episode of "Ghost Whisperer" was ok, now the new "Medium" is up....
