http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id... The EU also gave Microsoft 120 days to release “complete and accurate” information to rivals in the office server market so their products can work more smoothly with desktop computers running Windows. MS should give out the same documentation to everyone. The SDK isn't different if you download it from a .microsoft.com, sun.com, java.com, or any other domain. If you can download the SDK you know as much as the rest of the world. If you want to find ......

You are The Oracle, from "The Matrix."Wise, kind, honest- is there anything slightlynegative about you? You are genuinelysupportive of others. Careful not to let peopletake advantage of you, though.What Matrix Persona Are You?brought to you by Quizilla (via Managed | Core or Dev Notes) *Edit* Removed dumb comments on my part, sorry *Edit*Quizilla is starting to rock, maybe I should check out more of it's quizzes. Good find guys ......

I've had a guitar since I was probably 8 years old. I never learned how to tune or play it so I would often tune every open string into a chord so that I could simply use one finger and play a chord each fret I went to. This in most ways is like drop-d tuning but I also fiddled with the last two strings to make it sound better. I played a good number of years this way until I had a friend in a band show me how to tune his guitar and play some of the basic chords (Dane, thank you). I've been playing ......

For those of you, like me who use MSN Messenger and subscribe to Microsoft's Security Bulletin you were probably sent an email message yesterday saying how there is a new vulnerability in MSN Messenger 6.0 and 6.1. If you missed the bulletin here it is for your web viewing pleasure: http://www.microsoft.com/te... I figure that this vulnerability is a little hard to exploit but I should update my version just to be safe. Since anyone can read any file on my computer ......

http://images.quizilla.com/... Mundi sum!"I am the Master of the Universe!"You are full of yourself, but you're so cool you probably deserve to be. Rock on.Which Weird Latin Phrase Are You? brought to you by Quizilla I don't see how they came up with these possible choices but apparently they seem accurate. Maybe I shouldn't pick choices that put others down but I wanted to see what it would do. This is fun to do when you have about 2-3 minutes of free ......

I don't always believe everything I read on the internet or agree with an exact viewpoint but Rory has a major point in his post about Howard Stern's recent removal from the airwaves here. I agree for the most part but as a Christian I don't like how we somehow get dragged into this fight for censorship and freedom of speech. Christ came to this world for one thing: freedom. Christ's mission was to free the human race from the effects of sin yet some 'Christians' tend to think this means that we ......

I have spent the last week working on our portal upgrade. I'm completely fed up with the product and I've decided that they couldn't pay me to mess with it any more. This isn't my fault but the fault of the makers. I have no exposure to the database or a way of batch updating. We have 7 customers who use it, all with their own 'instance' which is basically their own sandbox. The upgrade was waiting for me because I wanted to get all instances on the same content. I knew that if I took the time to ......

Where'd the 'a' go? Oh well I guess this is a needed upgrade if you run .99. I hadn't done rigorous testing or anything but there's an update for those of you keeping up. For those .NET developer's who don't know, the download link is here: http://www.icsharpcode.net/... Join the announcement list while you're there, that's how I learned about the download. It's much easier checking email than going to their site every couple of days, especially on something as cool as this. It ......

Apparently people where I come from have an inability to use the car in the function for which it was designed: driving. When Henry Ford invented the first automobile did he ever think there would be such a thing as stereos or cell phones? No. There were telephones around when cars where invented but I don't believe anyone thought they could be used in one. I studied physics a good bit in school and most of the examples of force involved car accidents. I guess maybe they were trying to teach us that ......

Damn near an entire novel about my life up until this point. Thanks to Jeff Julian (http://geekswithblogs.net/jjulian/) for setting me up on geekswithblogs.net, it's greatly appreciated. Read the full post if you dare, and have a good 10-15 minutes to kill.
