Listen dickhole, they might not have a policy in writing that says you can't hula-hoop in there, either, but if you try to do it, I guarantee they'll ask you to stop, and you're an asshole if you don't. Fucking idiot.
If they communicate their wishes to you, you either follow their wishes or you fucking leave. It doesn't matter how they communicate to their wishes to you. It's their fucking place.
... why do I suspect it'll be the managers who are the last to be dragged, kicking and screaming, from Outlook?
I use Yahoo mail and Outlook. Outlook definitely has its place, especially in a business. Tell me though, because I haven't looked: can Yahoo's calendar let you see everyone else's free time when inviting people to a meeting? As easily as Outlook does?

The word robot was introduced to the public by the Czech interwar writer Karel Capek in his play R.U.R. (Rossum's Universal Robots), published in 1920. The play begins in a factory that makes artificial people called robots, though they are closer to the modern ideas of androids, creatures who can be mistaken for humans.
Well, different from a central HVAC, where you set the thermostat and forget, with individual units I make a decision when to turn on and in which rooms. In the end, I only use cooling when temp gets higher than 26C (79F), and only on rooms being used, taking care to close doors. I calculate in a given week I have a total of about 20 hours of AC running, give it or take it.
And only during summer, winters are mild enough that no heating is needed (it would be electric if needed, not propane or oil)

On that note, how many of those gasoline fires and deaths were in sub-one-year-old cars?
I think they should do exactly that, and call it "And now for something completely the same."
Weather turning warmer here in the south hemisphere, so there's more A/C. Should peak at some 200KWh at the height of summer.
And I telecommute, so I'm at home most of the time, but usually only one room has the A/C turned on (it's not central, but very efficient inverter split units on each important room)
Other costs are the refrigerator, lighting, TV gear, etc.
Paging the world's smallest violin, you're needed on board the waaaamublance.
