I'm actually back on my old 7.8 device whilst waiting for a replacement battery for my 820 and it has really reminded me how complete a vision win 7 was in comparison with what 8.x became. To be fair I can do more with 8.x (like actually open most media files), but I can't help but feel 'if only MS could have kept their nerve...'
"Outlook 2013 won’t work with .doc or .exe files for Word 1997 to 2003 and Excel versions 1997 to 2003, the company has revealed in a blog."
That's a pretty vague statement (even allowing for the presumed typo of .exe), isn't it? Does this mean I won't be able to send these files as attachments? Or does it in fact mean that they can't be used for some rather more onscure import/export functions?
If you're going to recycle a blog post then at least try and add something (like clarity) to it.
Thanks for clearing that one up.
I've always wondered what moral turpitude was, especially since US immigration puts it up there with genocide.
Thought occurs: If MH was found in breach of a moral turpitude clause, would he ever be able to leave the US for fear of not being allowed back in?
I won't be crying if IR35 is abolished, but I've never been opposed to it in principle either - even though I am a contractor. I became a contractor to carry out varied work for multiple clients and opperate a company that allows my legimate expenses to be met and my income managed according to my discretion, within the current tax regime. All of this is exactly in accordance with IR35. I actually believe that if you want to sit at the same desk for years, manage other staff, be trained by your employer (etc...) then you should be treated like the permanent employee that you clearly might as well be. It's no coincidence that I've always found that those people who seem to want the latter are the bordeline dross that give contractors a bad name and I'm not sure I want to give them any further encouragement.
Also, it's not just the subsitution clause, but it's not so complicated that a couple of hundred quid spent at the beginning of a contrat with a decent IR35 specialist lawyer can't keep things watertight. If you can't reconcile that kind of outlay then you really aren't acting like a business.
Your post is a great critique of SQL Server and I honestly stand behind you on everything you say - I must have encountered most of the things you pick out at the most inconvenient moments myself.
However, will that stop me betting my mortage (in a very real sense) on the continuing success of the Microsoft product? Not a chance. Long live the marketing dollar.
