The Future of TV
Look at the lineup of new content tonight: Duel Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?

Know a good Exchange Hosting provider?

We've been using 1&1 for years, but over the last several months they have had a unbelievable amount of downtime as they continue to try and upgrade to Exchange 2007.

Does anyone else out there use a hosted Exchange provider that they like?  Keep in mind we only have 2 accounts, so places like Rackspace won't deal with us.  It would also be preferable if they do web hosting also so we can use one provider for all our domains.

Precedent Set - $10,000 per song fine

What a bunch of CRAP!  Almost $10,000 per song.  And it could have been as much as $150,000.  This bullying by the music and movie industry has to stop.  But now that they have this win, I think it's going to get a lot worse.

24 illegal song downloads cost US woman 220,000 dollars  Link includes video.

Will Bionic Woman Be Canceled?
First a show like Cavemen is allowed to see the light of day, now Bionic Woman's ratings are dropping like a stone. “Bionic” fell 30 percent during its second episode to a 4.0. Moreover, this morning the industry is buzzing that the pivotal second “Bionic” episode, the result of extensive behind-the-scenes retooling, was a creative disaster—cliché-packed dialogue, a nonsensical villain, one-note characters. The much-heralded arrival of Isaiah Washington (who in a New York Post story Wednesday proved ......

Cavemen - Ouch

Did anyone else see the premiere of Cavemen?  I mean I knew it was going to be bad, that was the only reason I tuned in at all.  But I couldn't even make it to the end of the opening party seen before turning it off.  It just hurt to watch.  And I watch a lot of crap shows on TV.  Just ask my wife.

This show must end.  And soon.  I feel cheated somehow just knowing it exists.

Windows Live Pricing
Something I noticed in the InfoWeek article from the previous post that I hadn't seen before was pricing for high volume sites: $0.25 / year / unique user for sites that have more than 1 million unique users per month. Or $250,000 per year minimum. It doesn't say anything about traffic less than that. But I have seen limits posted of 25,000 calls per day. After that you need an agreement with Microsoft. Does anyone have any pricing information below the million unique users mark but above the 25,000 ......

Karaoke Elvis
Saturday night Kendra and I stopped in this little wing place and were treated to karaoke night. One of the customers was in full on Elvis gear. Big hair, glasses, large belt buckle, but no jump suit. His daughter performed first and her name was actually Lisa Marie. This guy is way into Elvis. When it came his turn to sing, he made an entrance from the bathroom like it was backstage and was carrying a guitar. He never used the guitar at all, not even pretending. In fact, he didn't move at all while ......

Car Sales Elvis
A few years ago my wife and I were buying a car. You know that point where you are out in the lot looking at cars and you just know somewhere there is a sales guy waiting to pounce? Well, imagine when you finally see that guy he looks just like young Elvis. That's what happen to us, and Kendra almost lost it. Turns out he is actually an Elvis impersonator by night. I don't know if this helps him sell cars, but I certainly remembered him. And we did end up buying a car from him. Fast forward a couple ......

BuiltWith.com
I just found this site thanks to commandN. BuiltWith.com allows you to type in a URL and they will tell you what technology was used to build the site and what type of advertising they are using. Pretty cool. Try it on one of your sites and let me know how accurate it is ......

Our Condolences Tony

I was right in the middle of typing a blog post about all the little things that seem to be going right today when I got a call from my wife, Kendra.

A friend's dad just passed away.  Really puts everything in perspective.

Tony, I know you read this blog, so let me say, you have our entire family's deepest sympathy.  I have lost both of my parents at a young age and I understand what a hard time this came be.

God bless.
