I was born and raised in Bozen/Bolzano, a small town in South Tyrol and a nice place in the north-east of Italy surrounded by beautiful mountains.

My computer addiction began in 1983 with my first computer, a Commodore VIC-20.

3583 bytes free.
I graduated in Computer Sciences (Informatik) at the TU Vienna in Austria in 1994, came back to Italy in 1999.

I'm married and have two little kids. I'm a PC, but I own a Mac too. I speak German and Italian much better than English, but I hope it will get better posting here.

If you connect directly to Exchange this is not relevant. BTW it's covered here: serverfault.com/questions/39537/…

Only the clock freezes or the whole notification area ("systray")?

In Italy 10 years ago, the Lira was our currency (1 Euro = 1937 Lire). So there were 1900 Lire shops. At that time Italy almost everybidy in Italy was a millionaire. :-)

Yes, that's true, but I think there is no other option. At least the two other formats are shorter...

Here they are called 99 cents shops. 1 euro is too much. ;-)

comment Adobe Reader: remember password for a PDF file
What annoys me is that I have to insert the password each time I open the book. And the password is very long, since it's my email address.

comment Why does some of the songs in my iTunes library stop prematurely and go to the next song?
Maybe iTunes at some point tried to "fix" something BMPer didn't break.

Thank you for your answer. Hmm, 49 EUR for removing the password I already know. I guess I'm not annoyed enough (yet). ;-)

comment Remote desktop disappears after login
Yes, the RD client on the local machine crashes, because it has to display something "weird" (weird for the video driver) which comes from the remote machine. But this is just an idea.
