There used to be an 8-ball easter egg

In Access '97 it was.

One of the things it used to say was "Outlook not so good".

Never was sure whether that was a value judgement or not.

But then again this was the same version of Office that if you typed "I'd like to see Bill Gates dead" in Word, formatted it as UK English* and asked for an alternative from the thesaurus it said "I'll drink to that". I can imagine billg wasn't happy...

* Or was is US English? This is 18 years ago and my memory is fuzzy.
