Twitter Plugin for GWB
Has anyone else noticed that the Twitter plugin for GWB doesn't appear to update consistently? I've noticed that over the course of a few days, the twitter feed on my blog gets REALLY stale. In order for it to update, I have to go into the Options menu, and "re-attach" my twitter account to my blog.

IE 8 Beta?
Hear ye Hear ye, looking for some info from the Geekdom about IE Version 8. Does anyone have a rough idea about when it would be rolling out of beta and into full production release?

We have to do this for two reasons--1) QTP will bomb if a screensaver kicks in and 2) the Net Nazis where I work have disabled the GUI used to set the screensaver settings. Yes I know its a hack but what choice do I have. My problem with this .BAT file is this: On 2 of the 5 machines, it runs completely silently. No fuss no dialogs, nothing. ......

I own a Creative Zen Vision: M. And I love it. OR...should I say I did love it until yesterday. For some reason, which I have yet to determine, when I link my Zen to my PC, my machine tries to reinstall the drivers including an "MTP device". AND FOR SOME #$#%$%^$ REASON--Its giving me an error I have yet to find a solution to. When the install attempt is complete, Windows responds with: "There was a problem installing this hardware: Creative Zen Vision: M An error occurred during the installation ......
