Scenario:

  1. User sends a number of e-mails. All are delivered without any problems.
  2. User creates first calendar event (and sends invitation). It is delivered at once.
  3. Five minutes later user creates another calendar event. Invitation is not delivered at all.
  4. User, again, sends a number of e-mails. All, again, are delivered without problems.
  5. Program does not inform user about errors in delivering that calendar event's invitation for five hours since event creation, i.e. until program closure.
  6. Calendar marks that invitation was delivered even though it still sits in "Outbok" folder.

And the cherry on the top: After learning about above problem, user sends an e-mail to its IT Support that it can't send one, single calendar event's invitation. E-mail is delivered without any problems.

Question. Is this possible? Answer: Microsoft Outlook 2013. ...continue reading "The worst e-mail client ever!"

There's a new price sheet for Miles & More's airline tickets awards that comes to live at 9 March 2019. It is already available as a PDF document. If you open up this document and scroll down to lower-right corner, you'll see a box saying:

When winter ends and March is coming, Google Calendar fails completely on event repetition functionality for events that are repeated by the end of each month:

It doesn't have such a repetition value like "end of month". And Google Calendar's developers are morons and didn't figured out that event set to repeat on 30th or 29th of each month must appear on February 28 in each non-leap year.
