AVG 8.0 Available
Grisoft has release version 8.0 of it's anti-virus software. We run the paid network edition which released yesterday on the 28th. It doesn't look like the free version has been updated yet, so home users and cheap skates will have to wait. I've been running this anti-virus program for years now and have had very few problems with it. Far fewer than McAfee or Norton.

Controlling Chaos - We Got Owned
It figures that the week after I decide to start blogging more about work that we would have the most chaotic week ever. Development is an ongoing battle with chaos, and this week, chaos brought a much bigger weapon to the fight. We do weekly iterations and most weeks we not only meet, but exceed our goals, followed by a push into the test environment.

Teens Love Thomas the Tank Engine

This is beyond ridiculous! I have had 3 Xbox 360's fail on me, and that doesn't include the current system which came with a broken face plate. Now the HD-DVD drive is dead. Microsoft's quality control on this system is the worst I have ever experienced. I just spent 30 minutes with support where he kept asking me "Why are you using an external drive? Just put the HD-DVDs in the internal drive." I had to try very hard to convince him that not only would that not work but that Microsoft even makes ......
