    Networking and Altruism

    • 0 Comments
    Dana vanden Heuvel posted today about The Virtual Handshake and altruism . He makes some great points. Simply, the more you give, the more you get (and if you don't get sometimes, that's OK too). Sounds like "duh!" but not so considering the context ...

    PDC05 - Rico Rocks on performance

    As I describe here , people actually trying to use RemoteAdmin have had numerous difficulties. The problems are even worse than I first realized. RemoteAdmin requires a ton of tweaking if you are trying to use it on a non-gateway device. I have updated...

    Sleepy in Seattle

    • 10 Comments
    Hi all, So I am back from the land down under. I was accused of "cavorting in Oz" while I was gone by one higher up manager that shall remain nameless, but I told him anything having to do with vegemite hardly counts as "cavorting." Or if it does,...
