Sending mail with Outlook 2002

I have been using outlook 2002 since... errr... 2002 ? (Yeah I know there are better email clients avialable... this one just integrates with nearly everything! And you can't beat that! :P)

I have always had it configured in a way were any message I wrote stood in the outbox until I click on Send/Receive.

Now I reinstalled the same Outlook 2002 (with the same CD!) on my laptop, I cannot seem to find how to achieve the same config! I went through the options a thousand times and really feel stupid! :roll: Any mail I compose gets sent out right after I'm done with it.

That's such a pain in the ass, since my MTA needs me to check mail before I can send some (yet another crappy anti spam measure! :( )

Can anyone help me out here and tell me how I get Outlook to not automatically send emails before I ask it to?

A little adventure into web dev

My real life has been holding me off from blogging and all that stuff for the last month. However, as I was sick and staying at home for the last two days, as there was nothing on TV (I really oughta get that satellite dish!), I pulled out my Dreamweaver...

First, I conscientiously fixed all open bugs on b2evolution and released a maintaince package. Then I went on playing with the homepage at http://b2evolution.net/ .

Check out that totally fluid 3 column layout. Try resizing the window. Try changing the font size. What do you think? ;)

By the way, tweaking with CSS layouts is a very efficient way to kill time! :>>

Anyway, the most interesting part of that new homepage is in the right column. There is a list of recently updated b2evolution blogs. I had added a feature in version 0.8.6 where b2evo sends a ping to its homesite everytime it is used to post a blog somewhere on the internet (unless you disabled that pinging in the conf). These pings actually get stored and here they come out of the darkness.

Now the homepage is different everytime I visit it and I can see b2evolution in action even when I don't feel like blogging myself! :D

Okay, enough self pride...

URGENT BUSINESS PROPOSAL blah blah blah...

Ever wondered how it comes you now receive at least five of these urgent requests for assistance a day?

About nutrition...

Below are a few excerpts from this fascinating webpage about how to improve your nutrition I stumbed across today. If you're sort of an absolute beginner at the age of 30 as I am myself, you really want to read this! ;)

Some of the most important nutrients are highly perishable fatty acids that occur in extremely small amounts, yet have vast repercussions in one's body. Commercial food preparers are unlikely to find it convenient to use fats that contain these highly perishable fatty acids in their products, so they will substitute fats with a longer "shelf life."

If I have eaten nothing and then eat a good orange, I get a sensation of sweetness. If I eat candies, and then eat the same orange, I get a sensation of sourness. My senses are relative, but my sensations are absolute. By omitting the candy, I would have experienced no sourness. In common language, candies cause sweetness. In reality, candies cause sourness.

Nutrition takes time. It takes time for every animal to get its food, prepare it, eat it, and clean up. We suffer from food inflation, in which food is plentiful, quick and easy to get, but unfortunately some necessary nutrients are in short supply.
