Dead Modem< /taps>
Came home to a dead modem last night. Funeral services will be held tomorrow afternoon, ping me for details. I've never lost a modem before...it's so painful *sniffle*. On a lighter note, appologies to my two readers for any 404 errors received over the past 14 hours. Cheers. Read More...

BizTalk Almighty
I ran across this post today and wanted to (briefly) drop my two cents. I worked with BizTalk 2000 way back in the day (circa 2001) and immediately fell in love with the product (enough to run out and get certified ( 663335/NotANumber) on it).

GMail 3rd Party Apps?
[Update] Found one from the monster itself . Neat! Now that I'm all Gmail'd up, anybody out there have a list of 3rd party apps that are available for Gmail? I've seen a few floating around the blogosphere from time to time, but didn't note them as I didn't have a need. Oh, and if either of my 2 readers... Read More...

Blah Part Three -- Microsoft Product Support Services (PSS)
I was going to let my latest experience with Microsoft Product Support Services (PSS) fall through the cracks and not even blog about it (not exactly proud of the fact that I contacted them, but more on that later), but the experience was, needless to say, downright comical. First a little background... Read More...

Got GMail?
Huge ups to Travis for hooking me up with a GMail invite. I had it in my head that I was going to switch over to gmail only (no more Outlook), however, Lookout for Outlook pretty much negates the reasoning behind this. The only compelling reason to use gmail is the fact that I can access my email from... Read More...

Blah - Part Two
The culprit for the seemingly random BSoD's? A half gig dimm of memory evidently decided it was time to call it quits on me. What was the number one nugget of advice I received via newsgroups/etc? Perform a system restore. Ha! I turned off system restore eons ago (about the same time I turned off indexing... Read More...
