Office 365 Small Business – Exchange migration. Hidden well…

Just spent 30 minutes on the phone with Microsoft support to figure out how one migrates (a crappy term to begin with. It suggests moving from one place to another. In reality it’s more of a 1-way sync) email accounts from an Exchange server to the mailboxes that come with Office 365 Small Business. As …

Eurovision Song Contest 2012 – What did it cost?

It’s known under many names: Eurovision Song Contest, Concours Eurovision de la Chanson, Конкурс песни Евровидение, Песма Евровизије, Avroviziya Mahnı Müsabiqəsi, Eurovisiesongfestival, and probably 50 more… Let me tell you from the start: I am not in favor of it.
