Upgrading Business Contact Manager 2003 from Beta

A warning to users upgrading from the Office 2003 Business Contact Manager Beta: Export your contacts using the Beta software, and then once RTM is installed, import them back in.  The db isn’t compatible between Beta and RTM.  We unfortunately learned that the hard way today.

What’s the buzz?

Everywhere I’ve been this morning, I hear people talking about Lili Cheng’s Social networking demo on Wednesday morning. I’m sad I missed it.

California news

Fires continue, the sky is pretty grey here today.  LA Times has good coverage if you’re looking for information on what’s been happening.  Apparently we also just had an earthquake (although I didn’t feel it) and I think I saw a couple of locusts… I’m getting a little nervous ;-)  Terminator to the rescue?
