Microsoft are still #1… and here’s the stats to prove it.

Posted by danblog on January 4, 2011 in Microsoft |

Microsoft often takes a bashing, and they don’t (always) deserve it. Many prefer their shiny apple gadgets and often seem to over look Microsoft. Now I shall not be saying they are perfect by any means. They have made some incredibly crap products in the past *cough* Vista. But at the same token they really […]

What do you mean my “contact list is full”?

Posted by danblog on October 14, 2010 in Ranting, Windows Stuff |

Just had an unexpected problem with Windows Live Messenger (MSN)… apparently I have too many friends? This is stupid! I don’t want to have to keep removing one friend to add another! 🙁
