A "how to" for texting from Outlook or any other email client for that matter. There are times when I just don't want to stop what I'm doing in Outlook to answer my Blackberry text messages. Why can't I respond directly from my email client?

Thanks Rich, this is the best site on the net. David


Good idea. I setup Outlook 2010 with text functionality a while back (only 100 sms free trial) and it looked/worked great.

If you don't mind opening a browser you can just use Google Voice. I believe you don't need an invite anymore, and there are no limits on how many messages you can send. It also has a robust voicemail feature you can integrate on to your current phone.

This is more than likely limited to US users.

With the capabilities of laptops reaching equivalent to desktops, a topic comparing the pros and cons between laptops against desktops would help many decide what suites best their needs.

If you could, I would like to have you go into a topic I discovered: Configuring the Extensible Counter List... I think that this is another performance tweak but I can't find info as to any performance improvments or problems that might result from changes.

Here is the link to download the utility that does the configuration: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=7ff99683-b7ec-4da6-92ab-793193604ba4&displaylang=en
And here is a screen capture of the GUI:

On my PC, these are the counters listed:
.NET CLR Data                  netfxperf.dll
.NET CLR Networking 4.0.0.0    netfxperf.dll
.NET CLR Networking            netfxperf.dll

WmiApRpl                       %systemroot%\system32\wbem\wmiaprpl.dll
WSearchIdxPi                   %systemroot%\system32\tquery.dll


From what little info I can find, disabling counters saves processing but I can't find any info as to how much, if it is worth it or what problems might arise.

Thank you...

Update: Thanks for your suggestion. Did you find out much more about this? No how to guide would do this topic justice! I'm waving the white flag on explaining this one :) Thanks again.

How about EMBEDING Meebo's toolbar in the Website and make your domain a part of them ? a chatting engine is always handy ! cheers !

Update: After trying a few of these toolbars, chat plugins etc., I've given up on using them. They all slow down and clutter this site.

More information: http://mintywhite.com/more/competitions ... win-prize/


I think u must start a topic or competition like "Trick of the Week" or "Tip of the Week" or "Hack of the Week" n mintywhiters 'll perform in the
competition :)


Update: This is another thing I'll implement; however, I believe this is something that should start in the forums. Once there's traction, we'll go from there :)

We did have something similar a while back, after much moaning (especially me :lol:) it was banished, hopefully never to return.
