Off Topic: SOLVED - Verizon DSL Support Is Horrible

Ironically, my DSL problem was solved before I received my modem. I guess that I’ll just have to use my nice new modem now since they still believe its a modem issue. Isn’t it funny how they’d trade $160 modem for a full month’s DSL credit (at a max $29/month)? They could have given me the next 3 months of DSL for free and would have saved them $70. Unbelievable. Oh wait, yes it is – it’s an “infamous” telco. Other than this issue, I’ve never had a single issue with my Verizon DSL. I just wish they’d start “upgrading” their support!

Off Topic: NY Yankees - Love 'em or hate 'em

If you don’t know me, I’m more than just your average fanatic. Over the years I’ve had to hear people talk about how they overspend and how they only pick up allstars and how the Red Sox are better. Well, if ESPN’s Page 2 can finally admit that’s not the case, then maybe you should too. There were at least 3 games this year that the Yankees played with less than 4 of their original starters. The all-star outfield of Matsui, Damon, and Sheffield now at times have had Melky Cabrara, Bernie Williams, and Terrance Long. We’ve had to deal with injuries to Posada, Jeter, Rodriguez, Giambi, Crosby, Rivera, Wright, Pavano, Chacon, Sturtze, Dotel, and Rasner on top of everything. Still, after last night, the Yankees are only 2 1/2 games behind Detroit for the best record in baseball and lead Boston in the AL East by half a game. So don’t count ‘em out. Not to throw a cliche out there for the rest of the baseball world but “if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em.”

Man rediscovers his hard drive 1 year later

A man took his PC back to Best Buy last year because the hard drive went bad. It was replaced for free as it was within warranty. However, he recently received word from someone else that they had his hard drive - not good. No wonder there are so many issues with personal information being compromised.

No TechEd for Me - I'll be on vacation!

Unfortunately I will not be at TechEd to hang out with any of my friends (which I can probably count on one hand Smile [:)]). Fortunately, I will be sitting on a beach somewhere enjoying no cell phone or laptop. I will probably check in with the TechEd folks later in the day each day but I won’t be checking email regularly. To all who will be in Boston, have fun and maybe I’ll run into you very soon.

ASP.NET Is A Resource Hog. Did You Know That?

Wally McClure and I were talking about a blog post by Dave Rosenburg this morning. Apparently, Dave thinks that ASP.NET is a resource hog because it cannot perform using a Virtual Machine or Virtual Server. Instead, he suggested hosting an ASP.NET application on a linux/UNIX box much like the MainSoft offering. How crude is that? :)

Microsoft to ponder Save to PDF?

According to Mary Jo Foley at Microsoft Watch, Microsoft may ponder removing the Save to PDF option in the 2007 Microsoft Office System. Personally, I hope they don’t remove it. Adobe should understand that there should be other benefits to having Adobe Acrobat Standard or Professional besides saving documents as PDF. Right now, for the common IT professional or office user, there are very few. Eventually, people will stop purchasing Acrobat just for that reason whether Microsoft includes the Save to PDF option or not.
