A while ago, our local newspaper here in Trondheim, Norway, reported an incident where a fellow had turned violent at a bar. He claimed to have consumed about 25 half liters of beer.
I know one whose father works at the police station; he tells that they had been discussing at the police station whether it is at all possible to take 25 half liters in one night. A few of those guys are big beer drinkers (in more than one sense...), and one of them were laughing: 25 beers? Of course! ... So his colleagues challenged him: On your next night off work, you show us that you can do it!
He did show them. But that wasn't what impressed the most: He took 16 of them before going to the toilet for the first time.
(According to my friend, it is less surprising after you have seen that guy's belly.)
Does/Has anyone noticed Office 365 (mutter!) has changed it's icons. A change but a somewhat pointless change or has there been a security update or am I losing the fine grip I had on reality I had!
Company policy, as it is Microsarft & we are a loyal users! We have to tolerate the powers that be locking our machines to such a level I am amazed that Chrome still works! Any update has to tested and approved by such a long process we only get the updates after a silly amount of time, Yes we are in the top storey of a multilayer office block, card controlled access our desktops have to locked to the desk with bitlocker installed...

Net Nazi's took our admin rights, as out PC's are leased. So we could not use any of the software we needed, they then tell us to carry on using out old network (which was held together with gaffer tape & bent paper clips...) and then have a fit as we have to use 'Unsafe Linux Machines' for some of the dev work...
I know they changed them quite a bit somewhere between 2 and 6 months ago
...to great fanfare, I might add, for which they were widely derided. Someone at Microsoft gets excited over these types of things.
OTOH, we might as well get somewhat excited about these icons - they brought back a tiny bit of color in this otherwise dull, flat, all-white, all-the-time, world...bringing hope that someday, we just might see some amount of sanity again...
When you're the size of Microsoft, developers seldom create icons themselves. They have a whole squad of people on the full-time payroll to do these. They supply the resources; developers just use them.
It's not just the icons - they are just the visual clue that things have changed behind the scenes. The most notable change is in the collapsed ribbon bar in Outlook; collapsed it looks like a traditional menu. Clicking the "menu" text brings up the ribbon.
