Microsoft Office 2011 for Mac

As Scott Raymond has declared completely in his post about the Google Calendar Sync issue we have on Office 2011, there is one more odd thing I want to add on Office 2001 on Mac for my language, Persian: It is not quite completely supported!

The words are all just broken when you do the document process in Word 2011, while it works quite well in Outlook 2011, this is what Microsoft has promised in some places to get solved sooner, but none yet.

Hope to see these all solved in the upcoming Service Pack of Office 2011.

Visiting Yazd City

I just had a chance to visit Yazd City for the last couple of days, and it was great. Better than regular trips to north of Iran for Norouz holidays

IMPRESSIVE!
