Some things just don’t work

At work, we use an e-mail and calendar program called Microsoft Entourage. It’s supposed to tell us when and where our meetings are. Problem is, it always displays the meetings one hour prior to when they are scheduled. This problem seems to be an incorrect time zone setting on a server somewhere, but no one at the company has bothered to fix it. So rather than use the calendar program on my computer – since it fails hopelessly at the single task it is designed to do – I keep my schedule in a massive, ungainly Word document. Hooray computer!
