Check your Microsoft® Outlook® calendar to stay on time during the Commonwealth Games

  • 07 March, 2006 09:24

<p>Sydney, Australia – March 7th, 2006 – Microsoft Australia is advising customers to check their Microsoft® Outlook® calendar appointments during the Commonwealth Games period this month to ensure they stay on time.</p>
<p>With the Commonwealth Games taking place in March, several Australian states have changed their daylight saving end date to the first Sunday of April 2006. These states are New South Wales, Victoria, Australian Capital Territory, South Australia and Tasmania.</p>
<p>This change has affected some of Microsoft’s software including Microsoft® Windows®, Exchange Server and Office which contain pre-set daylight savings information.</p>
<p>A patch to fix the date setting was automatically made available to customers through Microsoft Update earlier this month, however the fix may not have changed appointment times already scheduled in the calendar from 3.00am March 26th – 3.00am April 2nd.</p>
<p>This means that any meetings or appointments scheduled in Outlook before downloading the fix will all be shifted one hour later in the day.</p>
<p>“Microsoft is recommending that all our customers check their Outlook schedule to ensure they stay on time for important meetings, personal and social commitments during the Commonwealth Games,” said Mr Jeff Putt, Windows Client Group, Microsoft Australia.</p>
<p>Users can enable Microsoft Update by visiting http://update.microsoft.com . Alternatively; they can manually download the patch from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/912475 .</p>
<p>If customers have any queries about this and would like clarification, they can call Microsoft’s customer support centre in Australia on 13 20 58.</p>

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
