Tray Bien

I learned some things today: I learned that the Windows System Tray is not actually called the "System Tray", but is in fact called the "Taskbar Notification Area". This is despite what the documentation coming from other parts of Microsoft would have you believe. I also learned that if you read the word ‘tray’ too many times in the space of a few minutes it stops sounding like a real word ("’Tartlets’. ‘Tartlets’. The word has lost all meaning.")

For the benefit of Jamie, who has apparently decided to learn French, I should tell you that this post’s title ‘Tray Bien’ is a pun on the French phrase ‘trés bien’ meaning ‘very good’. This also doesn’t sound like a real word. So now hopefully you’ve learned something too.
