Loving Xobni for Outlook!

August 25, 2009 2 comments

Thanks to Patrick for the link to xobni.com. This little tool has a slick interface that fits neatly into the Outlook screen (granted I’m using a 24″ widescreen).

I’m still exploring features but the main benefit so far has been its pop-ups when populating the To and CC fields on new Outlook message. It looks like it filters through ALL email address that I’ve sent to / received from, instead of Outlook’s limited set of suggestions. Not having to do the extra 3 or 4 clicks to find addresses that are in my Contacts list instead of my Global Address List is a big time saver!

DYD RSS Feed available

Thanks to Joe for asking about RSS feeds for DYD. Setting it up was pretty straight forward thanks to Lorelle On WordPress (http://lorelle.wordpress.com/2006/04/06/create-rss-feeds-on-any-web-page/).

Links to the DYD feed and DYD comments feed are now available on the side bar under the RSS category.

Proud New Owner 2

Just bought a MacBook (upgraded to 4Gb RAM). It should arrive in the next few days. One of the turning points in deciding to buy my own was that awkward moment when I spilled Milo on my flatmate’s MacBook in a moment of iPhone development excitement.

So far I’ve found the iPhone Dev SDK website very helpful. Hopefully after I try some suggestions from users on that site I’ll have finished my first app and move on to some more interesting projects.

Find me on iPhone Dev SDK: http://www.iphonedevsdk.com/forum/members/trindaz.html

Here’s the exact MacBook model: http://store.apple.com/au/browse/home/shop_mac/family/macbook?mco=MTE2NTQ

Office Ribbon customization

Making my second attempt now to customize the office ribbon using the tutorial at  http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa338202.aspx#OfficeCustomizingRibbonUIforDevelopers_Customizing. We’re still thinking about the implications to Excel Add Ins that need to work across Excel 2003 and 2007.
