Less than a Brandon

by Brandon on August 13th, 2006

Unfortunately over the last few days I gradually developed a bit of a head cold.  On Saturday it wasn’t too bad – and one of my concert companions was in worse shape so I was able to feel better by comparison.

But today (Sunday) it got considerably worse and the timing was especially bad.  The cold combined with the sunburn-of-all-sunburns that I got on Tuesday culminated in one heck of a sneezy, stuffy, itching, coughing, head-aching, skin-peeling Sunday experience.  Suffice to say, I wasn’t a pretty sight.

At the moment I find myself with the itching subsided and my ability to breathe normally has returned (without the aid of any decongestants or the like).  Here’s hoping it lasts.

    Dear Brandon,

    Greetings from Western Australia.

    Trust you are feeling better. I couldn’t find your email address, but I have a question.

    I love msn desktop search. However, I have recently updated to windows live toolbar and desktop search. Since then, desktop
    search says that the indexing is complete, and yet it isn’t reading any of my outlook email/contact data.
    I have had outlook running and plenty of time for desktop search to index it.
    What am I doing wrong??

    Kind regards,

    Nigel Gordon

  2. Hi Nigel,

    Sorry I didn’t respond to this sooner. In your situation, the first thing I would do would be to open Outlook and go to the Help menu, click “About”, and then click “Disabled Items” and look to see if the WDS add-in has been disabled.

    Sometimes when Outlook crashes or is closed improperly (for any reason) it will ask on start-up if you want to disable all add-ins. If you click “yes” it will disable the add-in that is necessary for indexing to happen properly.
