While I was doing my Outlook Daylight Savings Time update, I realized something neat… this month marks 8 years of calendar history for me in Outlook. In February 1999, I first started using Outlook to manage my calendar, having switched over from the Palm desktop, and before that an obscure calendar program for a strange little PDA I had.
Outlook and I have been through a lot together. When our relationship first started, I was just a sophomore in college. In the past 8 years, I’ve graduated, started a business, gotten married, traveled, and had two kids. 6,022 calendar entries later, Outlook’s still there for me. ðŸ™‚
So this makes me wonder… will I ever purge Outlook of its history? That would be kind of sad. It be neat to someday sit down with my kids and show them what I was doing in 1999.
