Please, at least tell me the correct information.
Somewhere one or more badly behaved synchronization programs duplicated arbitrary numbers in weird places in my contact list...as an example, about a dozen people had christilyn's cell number listed as one of their numbers! I wanted to talk to wombat_1138 yesterday, but the number I had for her came up as a 540--which will be my new area-code-of-residence, but is definitely not her number.
While Plaxo and Accucard have techniques to scrub and merge duplicate _ names _ they have nothing for duplicated numbers. I've toyed with using this problem as an excuse to learn C# and the Office Object Model--but just haven't had the time. I need to iterate through all my contacts, build a many-to-many table of names to phone numbers, and then generate a report where more than one name shares a number. Hmm...maybe this is more an excuse to play in Access. Some will be legitimate--contacts from the same company, for example; spouses, partners, and housemates, as others, but most will be bogus.
Must. Stomp. The bogus.
Heh...I guess I need a userpic for "geeking out." Okay, my artistic friends: even if the numbers I have for you are right, you still have a project that you can work on for me, now.
