Sometimes you get a message/email that brings out a sense of nostalgia that reminds you of where you been, who you are and what makes you what you are.  I received one of those today.  It was a bit of a blast from the past.  The fellow below was one of the first people I hired in a company I started. Ahhh the sweet smell of nostalgia.  That said, I can’t believe he lasted in the retail industry for that long – he truly is a gem of a guy and a professional to boot. 

Good day; 

After nearly 14 years of being in the computer business the time has come for me to say farewell.  I have been offered and have accepted a position in another industry.  My last day here is Friday, June 30th. 

While I look forward to, and am excited about, a new career the change will be bittersweet.  The relationships I have developed over the years with many of you have been rewarding . .. . and will be missed.  It has been my pleasure to work with you, and I wish you all great success and happiness.   

Your account with CompuSmart will be well looked-after by Miles Johnson, who has over 17 years experience in the computer industry.  You can reach Miles by e-mail at mjohnson@compusmart.sk.ca, or by phone at 244-4300 ext. 232.

Features Features Features

Did you know that 80% of new feature requests from Microsoft Office are for features they already have?  It’s true.  This must have ticked off Gates and Balmer.  They are completely revamping the interface for Microsoft Office 2007 and planning to release it under the cover of the new Windows Vista release.  The jury is out on whether they are geniuses or morons. 

In any case, this new interface will certainly impact the face of existing and future software from all vendors.  This LINK shows 33 different screen shots of the new user interface.  Enjoy
