Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but rather we have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
- -- Aristotle
Believe nothing on the faith of traditions, even though they have been held in honor for many generations and in diverse places. Do not believe a thing because many people speak of it. Do not believe on the faith of the sages of the past. Do not believe what you yourself have imagined, persuading yourself that a God inspires you. Believe nothing on the sole authority of your masters and priests. After examination, believe what you yourself have tested and found to be reasonable, and conform your conduct thereto.

Since 2001 the company I work for has been laying people off (I didn't work for them then, I was a contractor with a team of employees. I sold the contract and secured employment at the company for my team after the second round of layoffs. So far we're all still here). We haven't gone one month since the first layoffs without hearing about another round somewhere in the company.
This year, in our area alone, there have been two layoffs, this last one got about 7% of the people

Cannot start Microsoft Office Outlook. Cannot Open the Outlook Window
That annoying error message kept appearing, no matter how many times I applied the recommended fixes from Microsoft and other places... Naturally I kept searching for something...
Finally I came across an obscure command that I hadn't seen and thought I'd give it a try. Since it worked I thought I'd immortalize it here today...
Simply run: outlook.exe /resetnavpane

Well, you can see it for yourself!
Well, I took off work for two hours, returned home to capture my first swarm. I have a mostly finished

As the title suggests, my bee hive is thriving after its first winter. It's always interesting to look into a hive and see only females with no drones, but the girls kill the drones at the beginning of winter as they add nothing to the hive but mouths, the queen will be laying a few drone cells soon and there should be some of the hairy beasts in there for my summertime.

Instead you get a mere shadow of the brilliance, barely enough to cast a shadow really...
Here is a nice soothing picture to help you overcome the melancholy and bring a little light to your life:
