This is the research diary of researcher Lisbeth Klastrup, since february 2001 sharing her thoughts on life, universe, persistent online worlds, games, interactive stories and internet oddities with you on the www.

I am currently on leave from the IT University of Copenhagen, and from aug. 2006 - aug. 2007 working as Associate Research Professor at the Center for Design Research Copenhagen, an independant center situated at the School of Architecture. During this year, I will be working on a book about the development of aesthetics, design and interaction on the WWW, together with colleague Ida Engholm.

My blog often reflects how busy I am in general, so posting may be pretty irregular, as well as my potential response to comments. But I read them!

Just one of these days
All I wanted to do was make sure I could use the grammar and spelling tool on Danish texts in Word. Honestly. But to make that work, I ended up installing a new version of Office and a complete version of The Office Proofing Tools. The new version of Office made my Outlook Express program crash completely (couldn't send mails), so I've ended up transferring all my mails to Outlook (since at the moment I have approx 1800 mails in both my inboxes , it takes some time...) - and have spent the last few hours persuading Outlook to switch between two different from-senders when I send my mails (much needed because ITU doesn't accept outgoing mail from my private address and my connection at home doesnt accept outgoing itu mail etc ad infinitum - why should things be simple?? )and doing other weird config stuff which makes Outlook more intuitively funcitional for me.

Did you know that Office 2003 comes with its very own spyware: "The customer experience improvement program" which launches itself as soon as you turn on an Office program. And of course you can disable it, unless you go into the registry. Problem is the registry key which you should set to turn it off, doesn't exit. So another piece of spyware is having fun on my laptop now. [update: an answer from Microsoft in a thread about CEIP, telling the _right_ address of the registry key and providing info of alternative way to remove it + info about what it does]

I just love electronic wordprocessing and communication. It has made my life so much easier ;).
