Google has implemented a new feature wherein you cantype someone's telephone number into the search barand hit enter and then you will be given a map totheir house. Everyone should be aware of this!Note ......

Near the end of October I started to look for a new job. On October 25th Bill Evjen posted to his blog how Microsoft has it's own section on Monster.com and the focus that was put on him and his job at Reuters. Naturally I had to check out this section of Monster.com. As I was looking at the page I saw a job opening for a .Net developer....6 miles away ......

I have had it. Yesterday morning I wanted to put a few files on CD, sounds simple enough. Well for some reason the CD/RW drive was being recognized as a regular CD drive. I rebooted the machine and the drive was now recognized as a CD/RW drive. Last night I was again putting files on a CD. All was going well until the end of the process. When again ......

I have been bitten by the photography bug. Yesterday the weather was just perfect here so I said to my wife "how about we take it easy today and goto the park" so that is what we did. I took a lot of photos, here is a link I also posted new photos of the baby's room. Enjoy! ......

In my previous post I mentioned that we purchased the Canon Digital Rebel. I have wanted a Digital SLR for quite sometime now and have been waiting to see if Minolta was going to come out with something that is compatible with the Minolta Film SLR's (we have one). According to the Minolta web site they are releasing a new camera "in the fall". I sent ......

This weekend was pretty busy! My wife wants to spell out the name of our soon to be son (34 days to go!) on the wall in his room. The only challenge was that the letters she wants to use are at Pottery Barn Kids, the closest one is an hour and half away. Soooo Saturday morning we drove to Princeton, NJ and picked them up. She had a gift certificate ......

I purchased and installed Linspire the other day. I have two laptops both running XP. My thought was why not setup Linspire (aka Lindows) on one of the laptops. So my Dell laptop, being the older of the two, was nominated for this task. I figured the HD could use a good formatting anyway. The install was a no problem at all. I was able to attach to ......

We had a fire drill today. Our building consists of 10 floors. We are on the 8th floor. Of course during a fire drill (or a real fire for that matter) you cannot use the elevators so we had to walk down. Walking down isn't that bad. For a fire drill they evacuate all 10 floors. We stood outside for about 30 minutes, of course I am thinking of all things ......
