Je suis depuis longtemps une grande fan de Scott Adams, donc j'attends avec impatience le 1er janvier 2010 pour arracher la couverture de ce calendrier de bureau et savourer la première page ... Avec un strip de Dilbert par jour, je sens que cette année 2010 va être intéressante, amusante, distrayante, désopilante, bref Dilbertienne. Pour tout vous dire, j'ai déjà un peu triché, et feuilleté au hasard. Je sais donc que ce sera du tout bon.

5.0 étoiles sur 5The perfect cube for your cube12 septembre 2009

If you're new to Dilbert, he's a small guy who works in a highly bureaucratic engineering firm. The comics satirize office politics beautifully.
The 2010 Day to Day calendar is a small block of 365 dated comic strips, designed to be torn off on a daily basis. Each page is printed in color - the overall color scheme is green and purple. This year a new addition to the Day to Day calendar is the "daily extra" printed on the back of each page. Sometimes it's a small brain teaser (eg a sudoku puzzle, a word search or a maze). Or it might be a riddle, a joke, a piece of trivia or an inspiring quote. There are also occasional household hints. On the weekend pages there might be a template to write notes for the babysitter or just a blank space to jot notes.
Unlike previous years, the 2010 calendar is not internally shrinkwrapped, but it still arrived without damage.
I give the Dilbert day-to-day calendar to my father every year for Christmas. He very much enjoys having a new Dilbert strip to read everyday and often saves cartoons to pass onto others. If you work in an office environment - or have escaped from one! - this is a wonderful calendar.

4.0 étoiles sur 5a great way to get a daily dose of Dilbert14 février 2010
Par Tpres2000 - Publié sur Amazon.com
I just realized I've been using Dilbert Day-to-Day Calendars for at least 5 years. The only calendar I might give it up for is one that doesn't exist: 'The Calvin and Hobbes Day-to-Day Calendar'. But this one usually gets at least a chuckle out of me when I sit down to breakfast, and that's not a bad way to start the day. My only complaint is that the back of the pages now have some puzzle or quiz or something; I don't know who thought of doing that, but it's totally unnecessary - Dilbert can stand on his own and doesn't need any little extras. Besides, I often used to use the back of old pages to make notes to myself for the day, but now it's a drag because of that stuff being in the way, so I've had to switch to using the back of pages from the 'Zen Page-a-Day Calendar'. It's a little late for this year, but check it out for next year - it's still a great way to get a daily dose of Dilbert!

4.0 étoiles sur 55 stars for Dilbert, 4 for the calendar1 décembre 2010
Par Kenneth Simon - Publié sur Amazon.com
I've used the Dilbert Day-to-Day calendars for several years, now. Scott Adams is as funny and cutting as ever, and brings back some memories of my own cubicle days! My only problem is with the decision beginning in 2010 to take up the back of the sheets with word search games, quotes, trivia, sudoku and other stuff. None of the material on the backs of the pages has been worth even a glance! When the backs were blank in past years, I used to save the pages and use them for scratch paper; now they just get tossed into the recycling bin. Knock off a star for that, but I'll still buy the calendar!

5.0 étoiles sur 5The only thing that gets me through the day...24 février 2010
Par D. Cunningham - Publié sur Amazon.com
Seriously. When you sit in a 8x8 cube of doom that was designed with "soul crusher" gray walls for 8-10 hours a day you could use a good laugh every now and then. Dilbert just has me figured out! Granted I work in IT - I also work for a fortune 500 company so a lot of the corporate jokes that Dilbert makes are DEAD ON. Examples of this include goal setting, project management, office weight loss, redundant meetings, etc, etc.
Every morning I hurry to my cube with a little bit of excitement knowing that I get to tear off a new comic! My only complaint? occasionaly the paper tops hang a little bit when you tear them off and it looks kind of sloppy, but the manufacturer made little perforated sections that can tear off at 1/8 increments through the comic to remove all of the excess paper left behind.
If you know someone who works in an office - preferable with cubicles - they will truly appreciate this little gift. It makes my day!

2.0 étoiles sur 5Love the Color, where's the Sunday?23 avril 2010
Par J. Harston - Publié sur Amazon.com
I get this calendar every year (yes, I work in a cubicle in corporate America) but they NO LONGER get better each year.
For 2013: My strike against purchasing this calendar begins. GIVE US BACK OUR SUNDAYS! GIVE US BACK OUR SUNDAYS! GIVE US BACK OUR SUNDAYS!
For 2012: BOO-O-O SCOTT ADAMS! Now I am getting pissed. Again, the Sunday strips are missing. This will be my last edition unless Sundays come back. It used to be that I kinda looked forward to stumbling into my cubicle each Monday because I knew--first thing--there would be a couple of days worth of Dilbert to greet me. But that all changed on December 26, 2010 (the last day they printed a Sunday comic in the "Day-to-day" calendar).
For 2011: Wired: full color, cool Dilbert cartoon content. Tired: they combined Saturday and Sunday into one page (only printing the Saturday panel, which in my opinion is the suckiest of all days to read comics; Sunday's the best day) Where are the big beautiful Sunday versions of Dilbert?!@! I hope this decision saved a lot of money, because it really, really blows!
2010: I love the return of color. New this year are extras on the back fo each tear-off page. Extras include Sudoko, a handy little form for the babysitter, helpful hints, etc...
