X1. It's worth the $50 or whatever it costs now. I've got almost 1,000,000 emails archived. Inbox is a to do list. Once done it gets deleted. Deleted items get purged to a PST about every month or two. 1 PST per year for archived deleted and sent items. No other filing. Works great. X1 is very fast and just plain works.

Submission Eighth Wonder of the World

pilsner.urquell writes: In what could prove to be a landmark discovery, a leading paleontologist said scientists have dug up the 47 million-year-old fossil of an ancient primate whose features suggest it could be the common ancestor of all later monkeys, apes and humans.

Based on previously limited fossil evidence, one big debate had been whether the tarsidae or adapidae group gave rise to monkeys, apes and humans. The latest discovery bolsters the less common position that our ancient ape-like ancestor was an adapid, the believed precursor of lemurs.

The search for a direct connection between humans and the rest of the animal kingdom has taken 200 years — but it was presented to the world today at a special news conference in New York.
