"Any ideas?" is the most frequently-asked question in technical forums. My answer is: yes.

I am no longer sure there is a pony anywhere in there

Beth and others: I promise I will write a real blog post and discuss more important questions when I am feeling a little better.

This really happened to me today.  I have the flu and wasn't sure it was happening, it could have been a fever-induced hallucination at this point, so I documented it with screen captures and sent it to myself and a couple of colleagues, including C, as an email message.

Oh well.   

I’m not sure if this qualifies as a “recovery” unless we define  it something like “I am a habitual Project user and I am now in recovery”.

MS Project on parade, step 2, yippee!

So… having taken some time, and written this much… more good news appears over my Outlook message draft:

This cannot be happening.

    In case, you are a real person and this is a real question: Alt-PrintScreen is all I use, honest.
