That Microsoft Works is at Version 9 and is still an active project at Microsoft. Holy crap.

That my blackberry is broke. :(
That if I moan about things that have annoyed me for hours they'll fix themselves up instantly.

Edit: One should have mentioned he was having problems controlling the directional pad rather than functioning BBM.

You haven't heard? Blackberry services had been down globally for a large part of this week. Huge disruption to business. Unfortunately timed for Apple's launch, too.
But all should be well, now.


Also, Today I Learned that a full screen app on Lion acts like a whole new Space. It's not really a huge difference, but it changes workflow immensely.

I learned that Canadians aren't as smart as I thought.

Here's another lesson for you: Estonians are huge drunks. I am also immune to hangovers.

Implying alcohol consumption means they get drunk every time, I could drink 40 liters of alcohol in a year and never be drunk once, try again though.
