Stale

Pretty stale posts here, if I don’t say so myself.  Can’t say I’ve really been inspired by anything as of late – mainly plugging away supporting customers.  I can breifly say this much, after finally getting a chance to kick the tires on Visual Studio 2005, it sure does live up to the hype.  I’m…

HOWTO: Not have an unpublished number and still pay for it

I start this post off by saying I’ve been a TDS Metrocom customer for almost five years now.  When we first moved to Madison from Chicago, I chose them since it was the only DSL option at the time, and when combined with their voice service, it was a very affordable package.  In the four years…

Mmmm Coffee

Though it has been open since April, I’ve only just discovered the new Dunn Bros. Coffee shop on Capitol in Pewaukee.  Those from the Minneapolis area will know this place for sure.  For the initiated Dunn Bros claim to fame is how freshly roasted the coffee is – they roast it right in the store. …

Razor sharp code

BlogJet Test

Someone steered me toward BlogJet as a posting client, and this is the obligatory test post (at least I’m not subjecting my single-digit throngs of fans to the canned one that comes with BlogJet). The feature I think looks pretty cool is the automatic upload of photos.  Here is one I took earlier this week…

Google sightseeing

I’m late to the game on this, but I’ll give a shout out to Google Sightseeing as one of the better time sinks as of late.  I’ve been particularly intrigued on the discussion of several strange points found on the aerial photos.  They first were found in the West Palm Beach area of Florida, but have…

New customer

I just got assigned a new customer yesterday, which is pretty cool.  My account load has been less than full time as of late, so some additional work is definitely welcome these days. Since Channel 9 isn’t planning on stopping by anytime soon, I’ve been kicking around the idea of a series of posts to…

One more reason I like Target

I grew up in the Minneapolis area and have watched two local retailers grow to be huge national chains, namely Best Buy and Target.  (I remember when Best Buy was “The Sound of Music” and most of the stores were the size of an average two car garage.)  One reason I like Target so much…

Now on MSN…

I took the plunge and set up a “space” on MSN.  I’ve always felt a little reluctant to post non-technical stuff here.  Here is the link.  I can’t say I’ll be updating it a whole lot more than here, but who knows.  Only time will tell.
