The evolution of the modern computer is a fascinating tale, and one that spans several centuries. The term computer used to refer to a person who worked out calculations or computations. This term was coined in 1613 and did not change its meaning from “guy who knows math really well” to “that mechanical marvel that [...]
I frequently tell people to “delete the SRS” to fix problems with send and receives, especially when Outlook crashes when they try to view the Send and Receive menu or do a send and receive. If you haven’t guessed yet, SRS is the send and receive settings file. It holds the configurations found in the [...]
