Evites and Knoppix

While I try to retrieve data from my 200 GB hard disk, which has all of a sudden freaked out (XP is now complaining that the hard disk is in FAT format even though it is FAT32 based) using the sooper-dooper Linux software Knoppix, which can load up the complete OS from a CD, I thought I would post on something cool that I found out in an Evite invitation. Evite is a site which many (or almost all the people that I know of) use for sending out electronic invitations for parties and social occasions. The evite invitation had a hyperlink to add it to your Outlook Calender (It had the location and date and time field filled out automatically). I had not noticed this feature before and now that I have, I think this is a very cool feature. I use my Outlook Calender to keep track of almost everything like appointments, meetings, birthdays, to-dos and such. This when synced with my Treo 600 (A Palm based PDA cum phone) helps me both at work and in my personal life to keep everything organized. I am totally amazed at this neat little feature in evite!

It's 1 am in the morning and I am still trying to get back the stuff from my hard disk. Hopefully, I get it all intact.
