Nagging irritations of technology

For some reason Microsoft Office 2010 has decided I need to select a “profile” every hour on the hour. I can’t for the life of me figure out how to make it happy and go away forever. Not being an Exchange guy, I know it’s Outlook related, and since I am consulting to Edelman I am on their Exchange web client so I can gain access to their internal mail and directory. I suspect it may be related to Google Calendar sync or something, but I do wish it would go away.

Suggestions so appreciated.

  1. The solution is simple. Uninstall MS Office (if installed) and substitute LibreOffice, (a fork of OpenOffice, based on Sun Microsystems StarOffice) which is free, and you can download from the web. Then replace Outlook (if you wanted to use a non web-based e-mail system) with something like Mozilla Thunderbird, for example. If you remove their wretched software, it will stop pestering you. 🙂
