Dickie's Quickies

We're meeting up with some friends this morning for brunch. After that, I've got to bake some sandwich bread for the week and I might make some pizza dough as well. So, baker boy again. Plus, I'm working on a new seed for a barm for whole grain breads. This should be lots of fun and I look forward to using it. The seed will be done anywhere between 5 and 7 days from now. Then I'll make the barm.

Laura Rozen points to this story in the NY Times of a Republican congressman who opposed the port deal with the UAE company having his trip to Iraq canceled in what might be a retaliatory move by the White House. Writes Rozen:
The Bush administration continues to make fools of Congress, including Republican representative of New York, Peter King, who took the lead in opposing the Dubai port deal.
Congress is no longer a separate, but equal branch of government. Not with the toadies in the Republican party running it.

Chris Ilias posts on his blog a way to get Thunderbird or Seamonkey to use the address book of Outlook Express or Outlook:
To make Thunderbird use your Outlook Express address book, close Thunderbird, and add the following lines to your prefs.js file:
user_pref("ldap_2.servers.OE.description", "Outlook Express");
user_pref("ldap_2.servers.OE.dirType", 3);
user_pref("ldap_2.servers.OE.uri", "moz-aboutlookdirectory://oe/");

For Outlook Contacts, use these lines:
user_pref("ldap_2.servers.Outlook.description", "Outlook");
user_pref("ldap_2.servers.Outlook.dirType", 3);
user_pref("ldap_2.servers.Outlook.uri", "moz-aboutlookdirectory://op/");

One important note: in order for it to work with Outlook, Outlook must be set as the system default mail client.
And to think that I spent all of that (painful) time exporting and importing the data.
