In response to: It only gets worse with Sears

Concerned Consumer [Visitor]
Sears is horrible.

They made a mistake on an account - refuse to see the error and we have to pay over $50 for their mistake.

In response to: Microsoft sets out to alienate PC Enthusasts

conficio [Visitor] · http://conficio.blogspot.com
Good point,
I'm considering my attempts to move to Linux again, as I did two years ago. Windows costs me too much money, especially if I add in the hazzle to repair the crashing system from time to time. It also requires me with every "upgrade" to buy a more beefy machine.

For example I have no use for fancy graphics or 3D animations. I always disable the fade-in animations of WinXP ASAP, because they only eat my CPU cycles w/o adding anything of value. Now for Vista I need realistically a 4GB (yes I use 1-2 GB for actual work and Vista needs 1-2 GB just to run properly) machine with high end, expensive graphic card, for no good reason.

I think I'll give it a try with Linux as well and install my needed Windows for the few things I need it for as a VM.

In response to: Decked out with tension

Jealous? This coming from the Guy that's heading to Ecuador soon? The Guy that worked in Korea? Nah.

I enjoyed the challenge of problem-solving more than actually building the deck. Fortunately it was just a simple maintenance fix than anything else.

I'm looking forward to your posts about your trip!

Fun stuff! I'm sure it was frustrating to havee it happen, but I have to admit to being a little jealous. I'm not much of a physical labour kinda Guy, but your story actually had me itching to do something construction-y.

Excellent advice. I recommend using a hosting service to take care of all your hosting and web design needs. That way you are free to attend to business matters you have knowledge in.

Mike,
Here's a site with lots of good content & articles about web design. http://webdesign.ducttapemarketing.com/

Commenting on their blog with some of your expertise might be a good idea!

In response to: Anti-Spam, Anti-Virus Conspiracy theory?

Snap Up [Visitor] · http://www.SnapUpRealEstate.ca
Mike, that is a fantastic article! Indeed, there does need to be a revolution. With the internet creating so many small businesses, they definitely carry a clout when they unite behind a cause.

With such quality writing, why don't you add Technorati & Del.icio.us to your blog so it can be distributed on broader networks?

In response to: I've been waiting for this for a long time

A good review of this technology can be found at: http://www.anandtech.com/storage/showdoc.aspx?i=2480&p=1

In a nutshell, the product is good, and does have some benefit in performance, however, due to the limitation in SATA performance the board doesn't make full use of the RAM performance potential. The general consensus is to await for a new release of the product which supports SATA II and more than 4GB of storage space.

Hey Mike - I think they are doing some moving around in the server room at City Hall and this might be the cause. I still can't get on the city web site (its Sun, Jan15). Hopefully they get this fixed tomorrow.

Suzi is much more than cool! She's amazing! Her music is really fantastic, and I love the band and have a CD. I especially like the song, "Bad Dream." I have even made a binder about King Size Suzi!

I was very impressed with Newsademic.com. Although not really falling into the category of either a young reader or an ESL student, I found the articles enjoyable to read and very informative. For anyone with time constraints, Newsademic.com is an excellent overview of world events.

In response to: Just bring water to the desert!

Mickael Maddison [Member] · www.Picotalk.com
Lizards? We don't need no stinking lizards.

Seriously though. I'm sure there'd be some displacement of wildlife, but I don't expect the entire desert would end up flooded... the lizards could slowly crawl elsewhere as the water flows by.

That's excellent - as a former TRU grad (with honours: boo-yaa!) it is refreshing to see someone with integrity doing well. Congrats Robyn!
