Outlook email slow, slow to open close emails, slow performance, Outlook 2003, Outlook 2000, very slow

Hello Outlook user! I made this post so people that haven't figured out why their Outlook program started behaving painfully slow could try this, which worked for me. You may have a plugin or add-in problem but none of the other solutions fixed my problem and I had no plugins nor add-ins.

Here's what DID work, amazingly quick, back to normal, fast Outlook speed and it's a two second, easy fix.

Locate this file: outcmd.dat in your /Documents and Settings/USER/Application Data/Microsoft/Outlook/ folder and if you're afraid to delete it just rename it to outcmd.dat.bu or something else. BAM! Fixed! Outlook will look for the file and when it doesn't find it, Outlook generates a new one. In my case the file is now 2KB but the culprit file was over 11MB.

I found this instruction on a web page in the comments section.
Now you found it.

Banging my head since the day I was born

When just a wee lad way back in the crib
a football helmet was bought for this kid
by his Dad

Because the kid banged his head


It seems the head banging continues.

Now, in a more figuratively fashion.

But still.

reddit cultural report 07-31-09

I'm worried about reddit culture.

After being recently downvoted for suggesting that men should never hit women I must now make another disclosure:

I think it completely rude and ignoble of people that do not STOP, completely, and politely, for ANY pedestrian.

People have to learn this stuff.

So I'll write a parable with weathered optimism:

Once there was this young man, who was not necessarily or deliberately rude; and as luck would have it, this particular day he was fortunate enough to be riding with a very intelligent, yet very quiet older being, almost naked, about 7 ft tall, with a long ass beard and an awesome kinky Jewfro.

The young man was an experienced driver quite familiar with the demands of driving in the worst city traffic in the world. Despite being young and wishy-washy in his habits, he diligently attempted throughout his driving history to find that perfect time line between not holding up traffic and not offending the pedestrian.

So this particular day driving with the wise guy, and pulling out from an alley near the beach, lo and behold a pedestrian just about reaches the alleyway on the sidewalk at almost the same time. Well, not quite almost; for you see the pedestrian was a good 5-6 feet away from the intersection of the alley so logically the young man sped up a bit to hurry out of the way so not to interrupt the pedestrian's gait, nor hold up pressing traffic behind him.

Why don't you just run him over?
The wise old man said to the young driver.

That's all it took really for the young man to realize his vulgar, beef-witted, errant driving habits. That and perhaps a bout with momentary enlightenment later.

Many, many years later, this same young man though now not so young, ...attempting to perhaps share similar cognitive reflexes with drivers who had yet to learn such elementary politeness..., pulls into a grocery store parking lot and sees a little old lady who looked like she was using her shopping cart as a walker. Strolling out of the grocery store with a very modest bag of groceries she stops suddenly when HONKHOOOOOONNNNNK! holy sweet baby jesus! WATCH OOOOOOUT! Geez!

Surviving the surprise, Mrs. poor widow continues to push past the open space that SUV was trying to force their way into with a loud blast of the SUV train whistle while creeping up on Mrs. poor widow and finally, gunning it into the space once clear.

Door swings open, bimbo steps out, sunglasses, 32 perhaps, bleached blonde, probably 160 lbs, capri pants, cell phone held against ear, mouth going, purse in hand and she's off! And thar she goes talkin' away and walking briskly towards the grocery and obviously very, very busy with little time for losers like Mrs. poor widow.

"Why don't you just run her over?"
The not so young man says to busy slightly overweight woman in hurry.


--- and so... a possible lesson from this parable could be...???

don't clobber me, it's not that important!

We met a man, his name was Phil. He said he had to take a pill. I asked him WTF ol’ man? What’s your problem? That your van…? He said the pill would help him chill and swallowed it with beer. “Yep my van. I’m a Vet you see, now just understand.” Hold on a sec, bro. I’ve got a better thing. Just light this puppy up, & hear your heart sing. Then he nearly clobbered me.

He's a lovely friend. But damn if I know why he prefers booze and prozac to a few humble tokes.

Another eidolon cognizance joins the blogosphere. This time it appears to be an avant-garde neoteric negligible troubadour, with no recognizable political ambitions and yet optimistic in general, and most often one in whose drollery is often found muddling. Malapropisms seem to be a given around these here times.
