Christmas Nerd Cred

I’m not really looking for props, but I thought I’d throw it out there.  My nerd street cred should skyrocket after this announcement: For Christmas I bought my wife and my children their own vanity URLs and set them up with their own blogs. In all…

Three months since my last post. Why !?!?

Probably mostly to do with laziness.  Well, maybe somewhat, but the main reason is that my old site was hosted at OnlineFocus.  There really wasn’t a problem with leaving it there after I left the company and I was in no hurry to find a new host so I…

Wanted to get a post in before September ended...

Thanks, but no thanks, I'll stick with NewsGator 2.0

I bought NewsGator Outlook Edition (or whatever it was called at that time) about 2 years ago for around $30 and plugged into Outlook and have been very happy with it to this point. Since that time, NewsGator has switched from a “selling” model to a…

Sitting in Orlando Airport, waiting on baggage from Atlanta at 200AM

I’m not at TechEd this week, but between the web simulcasts of some sessions and stories like this one (from Eric Sink ), I feel like I am. http://software.ericsink.com/entries/teched_07jun2005.html This may be one of the funniest stories that I…
