Outlook.com: Send Without Attachments?

I’ve been a bit quiet on the posting front recently because my second book is in the later stages of the publishing process and I need to review and respond to feedback from the editors at Packt Publishing.

To do this we’ve been emailing drafts of the chapters to and fro. And (again) this morning a feature of Outlook.com saved me from looking slightly silly when I replied to an email intending to send back an updated draft, but clicked Send without actually attaching the file;

Send without attachments?Send without attachments? Just checking. It looks like you’ve mentioned attachments but haven’t added any.

I was presented with the above message. Clicked Go back, added the file and sent the message.

I’ve talked to various people who dislike this type of message, but I really don’t see the problem with it. I’ve only ever been presented the message when I have meant to attach a file and forgotten; I’ve never received it for a false positive so I quite like it. I wish Outlook 2010 had it (or perhaps it does and I just don’t know where the setting is.

Another Posting Hiatus

Unfortunately (well, fortunately if truth be told), the time has come for another enforced posting hiatus for me. Following my illness and emergency surgery in October last year, I am going back into hospital for follow up surgery tomorrow and will not be working or blogging for a time after while I recover.

Knowing myself pretty well, I’m sure I’ll get bored fairly quick, but Mark Polino has the antidote to any boredom with the release of his new book, Building Dashboards with Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 and Excel 2013;

With an expected release date of June 2013, the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Cookbook is to be released.

This is an update to the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 by Mark Polino, which was released three years ago. With the new version of Dynamics GP 2013 being released in December last year, it was time for a new version of the book to be written and with Mark was otherwise engaged writing the Building Dashboards with Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 and Excel 2013 so Packt Publishing approached me and asked if I would write the update.

So, in June this year the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Cookbook by Ian Grieve and Mark Polino will be released;

Posting Hiatus Of Unknown Length


You’ll have noticed a delay since my last post early last week. This is due to an unexpected hospitalisation resulting in emergency surgery from which I am now recovering.

While recovering I will be off work and not have access to my usual materials. I am viewing this as a good thing as it will allow me to focus on gettin better.

Hopefully, this will be a quick process and I will be back fit and healthy soon.

I’m On Holiday This Coming Week

Well, this coming week I am off on a holiday to Scotland to take in some of the historic sites and other attractions.

There are a few blog posts scheduled to go up over the coming days (only one of them is GP 2013 related) but there won’t be much interaction with where I have an active hand as I intend to relax as much as possible.

New Mobile Theme Added To azurecurve

I’ve just added a mobile theme to the site which will display the first time you visit the site on a smart phone; if you want the normal desktop theme then you can scroll right down to the bottom of the page and disable it.

If you notice any problems with the theme let me know and I’ll see about fixing it (I won’t see the problem myself as I don’t have a smart phone so if you see an issue please let me know).

azurecurve on Google+

I’m not sure if anyone cares, or even if anyone uses Google+, but azurecurve posts are now available on Google+ as they are on Twitter or Facebook.

My Google+ should be publicly available, but let me know of any problems. I’m sorting out an update of the theme at the moment at which time a Google+ button will be available.

Apology for Lack of Updates

Just a quick update to apologise for the lack of updates.

I’m currently stressing out about a house purchase I’m trying to get through as soon as possible (with concerns I may actually lose the house if it doesn’t exchange soon). For the regular readers out there (I assume there are some) I moved back to the NE in September last year to start a new job as consultant with Perfect Image, specialising in Microsoft Dynamics GP and sidelining in Dynamics CRM, and this is the final step for me to complete the move.

Once the purchase completes and I can stop stressing I’ll get back to posting; I have a backlog of posts not just related to the recently started series of posts on PSTL but also other areas of the system and related products.

Of course, once it does complete I’ll be project managing a renovation which will probably also cause me to stress out but I doubt as much as the purchase is (Bloody Hell I hope not anyway).

Hopefully back soon with some useful posts.
