We have seen the OOO (Out of Office) automated message and it will be more apparent as we head into the holiday season. These OOO, OOTO, OOF message are of often boring, straight forward, but why not breath some life into the OOF.
The “Center for Out of Office Excellence,” a cheery, not-so-serious site to help you create your own OOO (out-of-office) memes just in time for the holidays. Upload an image, choose a design type, revel in the joy of OOO and share it with your friends.
My Out of office might go something like this
I am will be on a mission from Dec 24 to Dec 25 and will be unable to address any work related emails. If you see me sneaking around your house in a red suit and a fake beard, go back to sleep!!
Or for all those desert rats out there, here is an OOO for you.
It’s been over a year since I worked on the site, and I am excited to be back. Besides coming back, I made a quick update to the look of the site and dropped the 2010 look. With the holiday season upon us and the year coming to a close, it might be a good time to think about next year’s resolution. Don’t think I need to hit the gym any further as I am 130lbs with my wet clothes on, so I will have to think about it further.
Within the last 11.5 months, I have to count my blessing for my health, family, exciting career and travel adventures. At work, I have seen lots of great initiatives and team growth, not to mention Microsoft making great strides. Guess I have to think long and hard for the next couple of week and come up with an actionable list.
p.s. – It’s interesting to see a potential presidential candidate that is looking to build a boarder to keep out the Mexicans, and to “bar all Muslims from entering the United States” a few days ago. Fear of the unknown, and the determination to dominate TV time is a dangerous combination.
Today, our “special kitty” left us for a better place after spending 15 awesome years with us. My friend, my family member, my Fifi – you will be greatly missed by your family.
You graced your presence before us when you were a kitten by adopting us, and we clearly remember how frighten you were when hid under the dishwasher – but you came out because of a rolling ping pong ball that you were curious about.
We will miss waking up with you sleeping above our head, or snuggling between our arm and chest. And the morning presence as you lay on our chest and start purring. We will miss the hide-and-chase game around the house, or the cat fight which you will come out ahead. We will miss those big round eyes, and the chubby little paws – which you will sometimes put in our mouth to wake us up.
We survived three hurricanes together, and you have travelled to more states that most cats in their 9 life time as you accompanied us through our journey. We will greatly miss you and cherish the memories we had together.
Our story began in 1999, when you adopted us and we were never cat lovers – but could not say no that cute face with round marble eyes. My girlfriend at that time walked over 3 miles to buy some cat Special Kitty cat food, and a cat food-water bowl… …as you put on a valiant fight for the last few days, we end this chapter by saying Goodbye and until we meet again my ol friend.
Although most people will say that he is a cat, but he will always be in our family and always loved.
So if you are not a big fan of being monetized without getting a royalty – here is what you needs to do.
Microsoft is celebrating another win for its mobile devices. Delta Airlines announced that it is equipping its 11,000 pilots with Surface 2 tablets to replace the traditional paper document flight bags. Starting with Boeing 757 and Boeing 767 aircraft, pilots on 700 planes will leave behind their 35-pound flight kit in favor of the second generation of Microsoft’s tablet product. The move to tablets will help the airline save on fuel costs, as well as cut carbon emissions by 26 million pounds, according to the airline. Delta also said that all cockpits will be paper-free by the end of 2014.
Microsoft Press Release:
“The Surface 2 will run on the Windows RT 8.1 platform and provide flight crews real-time access to essential tools and the most up-to-date flight-related resources including key charts, reference documents and checklists while saving the airline $13 million per year in fuel and associated costs.”
According to some unconfirmed sources, Apple’s iPad was being considered as a solution but Delta picked the Surface 2 ultimately.
