What is your greatest accomplishment?

This is one of the types of question that you may get at an interview; they are intended to get you to talk about yourself in a fairly informal manner. The questions are usually about some aspect of your own life so it is not possible for anyone else to answer them for you.

You should think carefully, before attending the interview, about such questions as this so as to be prepared when asked. There are several such questions and there is a great deal of information on the internet and elsewhere about techniques to employ when attending interviews.


They do not want to hear our accomplishments -- they want to hear yours! You are the only one who knows what your own accomplishments are!

Are Microsoft point generators actually real?

Yes They Are!..but the growing demand for Code Generators leads to the creation of FAKE Code Generators. And sadly this creates an illusion that would rather suggest that there's no such thing as a legitimate code generator which i would gladly deny. Anyway, try this site in the Related Links. I have been using it for 3months now. They offer a wide variety of services including code generators. :)

To gain a credited currency without properly converting your own real money to gain access to purchasable content is illegal. Unless you just buy the Microsoft points properly, you are stealing and should discontinue immediately!

Did Bill Gates steal ideas from Steve Jobs and use it as his own?

Apple licensed part of the Macintosh operating system to Microsoft which they used to create their Windows operating system. With subsequent releases of Windows Apple felt that Microsoft were using more of Apple's ideas than had originally been agreed under the licensing deal and started legal proceedings against Microsoft. It was later discovered that Microsoft had based their Media Player on the software Apple had written for QuickTime which resulted in further legal action. These disputes ran on for many years and were finally resolved in 1997 when Apple agreed to make Internet Explorer their default browser on the Mac, to the detriment of Netscape. Microsoft agreed to continue developing Microsoft Office and other software for the Mac over the next five years. Microsoft also purchased $150 million of non-voting Apple stock, helping Apple in its financial struggles at the time. Both parties entered into a patent cross-licensing agreement.

What advantages are there for mailing list owners in using list administration software?

There are two kinds of mailing list administration systems:

1) The kind that resides on your local computer; and,

2) The kind that resides on a web server system.

Either kind will allow you to add/remove people's email addresses to/from your list; or sort them every which way; or select them by numerous criteria, etc. Not all mailing list software is created equal and certain ones are clearly better and more feature-rich than others.

But of the two kinds listed above, the kind that sits on a web server system is inherently better than the kind that sits on your local PC. And there is one, single, simple reason for this:

Most Internet Service Providers (ISP; the entity that provides your dial-up or DSL or cable modem connection to the Internet), as an anti-spam measure, limits the number email addresses to which any given message may be sent -- even if said addresses are keyed-in to the "BCC:" (blind copy) field. Most ISPs limit it to 10 or maybe 20 or, usually at most, 25 addresses. So, that means that if you wanted to use list management software located on your local PC to send a newsletter out to 600 people; and if your ISP limited to 20 the number of email addresses to which you were allowed to send any given message; then you would have to send the message out 30 times -- the first to the first 20 addresses on your list; then the second to the next 20 addresses on your list, and so on -- until you had sent to all 200 names on your list.

And if your ISP's abuse department is on its toes (and most are these days), the system, upon seeing that you sent out 30 identical messages to a total of 600 different email addresses, would flag your account for spam investigation -- even if your message was not spam and was only a newsletter send to people who had given you permission to do so.

A list manager on a web server system, on the other hand, is meant to mass-mail to hundreds, thousands or even millions of addresses in one fell swoop -- and without going through the SMTP servers of your ISP!

Plus, online list administration systems mounted on web servers usually have an automated way for list members to add or remove themselves to/from your list using forms on web pages and verification emails so that people can't sign-up others onto lists without their permission.

Either way, however, DO NOT SPAM! So help me, if I learn that anyone became a spammer because of what they learned from my answer here, I'll make it my mission in life to get their Internet access account terminated and, moreover, to have them prosecuted under recent state and federal anti-spam laws.

Before mounting an email list, you should familiarize yourself with anti-spamming laws and learn how to stay on the right side of them. Moreover, you should do alot of reading on anti-spam web sites so you can learn good email list (n)etiquette; and so you can learn what types of disclaimers and instructions for removal from your list should be at the bottoms of all your legitimate, non-spam bulk-mailed email messages.

I recommend that you begin by visting spamlinks.net web site and begin educating yourself about the do's and don'ts of non-spam bulk emailing.

What is the difference between Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Express Edition and Professional Edition?

Microsoft Visual Studio Express Editions (notice the bold s) is a couple of programs one for each programming language: Visual Basic Express Edition, Visual C# Express Edition and so on... with Visual Studio all these programs are built in.

Visual Studio also has some other options that neither of the Express Editions have.

Does Microsoft sell employee scheduling software?

Some businesses use Microsoft Excel of Access to function as employee scheduling software, though that is not precisely the primary function of either Excel or Access.

Snap Schedule is a product made by Business Management Systems which graphically looks like a Microsoft styled product. Their website states that their software is "built on the latest Microsoft software tools" and that they've won "five Microsoft awards for software excellence". However, I see no indication that they are owned by Microsoft, as is the impression some people get.

I don't know of any software made by Microsoft which is specifically made for scheduling. If you search for some and find it, please improve this answer here at Wikianswers. Thanks.

You can also check out Planday.com. Planday is not part of Microsoft, but is a cloud-based employee scheduling platform that works on any device, including mobile phones. You can copy schedules week by week (instead of manually creating them each time), use the integrated communication function to send messages to your staff, they can also message each other to swap-shifts. There is also a location-specific clock-in function for your employees so you can track their exact hours worked. It is also integrated with a lot of payroll systems, so you can import the hours directly into your payroll system, removing the risk of mistakes made and paying for time that isn't worked.

Best of all, you can try it for free for 30 days (no credit card required) to see what it can do and how it would work for you. Visit their website to sign up for the free trial and test it for yourself.

Why did Ray Ozzie leave Microsoft?

Microsoft Chief Software Architect Ray Ozzie left Microsoft after a little more than five years. He was never given direct control of any product group. He didn't really have much influence on any product or team (they weren't required to listen to his advice).

It was probably boredom and lack of influence that led him to leave.

Roman Numerals
Microsoft Word

How do you type Roman numerals on Microsoft Word?

You can simply use capital letters such as I, V, X, L, C, and M to make the various roman numerals. For example, VII for seven.

do as suggested above or..go on insert/symbol and you should find it there. On the one it doesn't have to look perfectly like a stick. It has to have lines like the capital letter.

There are two other places where you might need Roman numerals in Word.

Firstly, some people like to have some of their document page numbers in Roman numerals. This is usually when they have a preface or introduction to a long document (like a thesis). Here, you may have a Preface, Acknowledgements, Table of Contents etc numbered i,ii,iii,iv,v and so on, with the page numbering 1,2,3,4,5 starting with Chapter 1.

To do this you must first create a separate section or sections in your document to contain those parts you want numbered separately. To do this put in a section break at the end. How you do this depends on your version of Word - look for "create Section Break New Page" in your help screen.

Now go to "Page Number format" (again where you find it depends on which version of Word you use - check your help files) and you can choose how to format your page numbers, and this dropdown menu allows you to pick Roman numerals either in large letters I,II,III,IV,V or the lower case I mentioned above. In this context people usually use the smaller letters.

The other place where you can routinely use Roman numerals is in numbered lists or outlining. If you pick numbering format options and then chose "Customising" you will see that you can pick Roman numerals (again I think you can chose upper or lower case letters) at any numbering or outline level.
