    Help w/ MCE 2k5

    • 9 Comments
    Now I've done it... I upgraded a prefectly working MCE 2k3 machine to MCE 2k5 (discs from MSDN Subscribers Download), and now I'm horked. Well, kinda horked... I flattened/paved the box, and did a clean install. I updated my nVidia GeForce3 drivers to...

    Updated now that I have one - see my review here . http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,1759,1706540,00.asp Check out this beast. Two tuner cards. Why anyone would call this a "laptop" is beyond me. System weight = 9.5 lbs. Could be a fantastic desktop...

    Hiring an Inbox Assistant

    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...

    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...

    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

    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...
