    Thanks for Breakfast, Kent

    • 5 Comments
    Kent just sent Duncan and I a wonderful idea for breakfast – a bacon cheeseburger served on a Krispy Kreme doughnut bun . The one that really disappointed me is further down in the article - the hamdog. I can’t believe there’s no pulled...

    Time for a trim

    Oh, it’s truly a blissful morning. Three 1–hr meetings cancelled within 5 minutes. With my OPML file becoming dangerously Scoblized, it’s time for a haircut. First, save the old OPML file… Have I read the blog entries...

    Movie Review: The Saw

    • 2 Comments
    Having a hyper-active 4 yr old running the house limits the amount of time I can devote to good ol’ blood-n-guts movies… Luckily, I found the time to watch “ The Saw ” this weekend. Oh my, what a great brainf---. Great premise...

    fear and loathing and death

    • 2 Comments
    Damn. Hunter S. Thompson killed himself with his own gun. Poor, poor bastard. I loved Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas. But that was written thirty years ago. F. Scott Fitzgerald (an author I loathe, incidentally) famously wrote, "There are no Second...

    Happy New Year. Maybe Next Year.

    I’ve been through at least five hurricanes, including Hurricane Andrew. I’ve watched tornados tear lives apart. I always maintained control by focusing on the statistics – how fast the storms were tracking ,etc. Until this morning, I’ve...

    Cross-posting - A new trend?

    • 11 Comments
    A lot of us are now running both personal and corporate blogs. Stephen and I started discussing an idea to make this easier - server-side triggers that will post to another blog automatically. I can do this client-side right now - w.bloggar supports this...

    Hiring an Inbox Assistant

    • 2 Comments
    Nothing clarifies the need for help managing the ol' inbox like being out of the country for a week. My inbox got pretty out of control last week, which drove me to search for some help. Don't get me wrong - Outlook is great, and has some interesting...

    SkypeIn?

    • 1 Comments
    Skype really saved my hiney last week while I was in Copenhagen. It could always tunnel through whatever network I was hung off on, and the reception back to the States was pretty good. I'm absolutely sold. Now I want "SkypeIn". No, it doesn't exist yet...

    ITForum: The Giveaways and Party

    • 0 Comments
    The bag is pretty sub-par. Nothing compared to TechEd Europe's cool bike messenger bag. Lots of eval software in the bag - ISA Server 120-day eval (I bet day 121 is quite a shock!), Visio, a pretty cool Security Guidance Kit (I have no idea how to get...

    Hii! ...and welcome to the IT Forum

    • 1 Comments
    Copenhagen - a great place to visit in the summer. Unfortunately, it's November. It's dark from 4pm to 7am. The shadows of stuff look *really* cool. I'm over here for the IT Forum - think TechEd without any developer-related content. The focus in on our...

    *Bizarre* issue with IRM and WindowBlinds

    • 2 Comments
    Yeah, I do have Mac envy. So I had WindowBlinds, DesktopX, ObjectDock, all fired up and running happily away. Then I tried to open an IRM'ed (Microsoft-speak for DRM) email. Nada. Wouldn't open. I fired up OWA, and I could get the email to open. Weird...

    A real live rock star

    • 1 Comments
    It is so cool to see a real live rock star every now and then. I was headed to my last meeting of the evening, when a panicked Rory swung by, looking for an office to crash in. Luckily, I've got folks from my team slung out all over the green earth right...

    I was put on hold by the fine folks at Qwest, as I try to get off the service-from-hell known as Vonage. While I was on hold, the song playing was the elevator/musak version of Peter Gabirel's "Solsbuty Hill". I cried. Time for my Geritol hits...
