Test Post with Video from Soapbox

I have a few really cool videos to post very soon. I thought I should try a test post with a video I have sitting on my laptop that I shot last year of the Blue Angels when they were in Seattle.Video: Blue Angels in Seattle – August 2006 1258


Five Things You Didn’t Know About Me

Thanks, Martin. I need a mental break, so I’ll play along. Here are five things you didn’t know about me: When I was about a year old, I reached and pulled the cord of a coffee percolator from my high chair, which came crashing down on me resulting in a number of severe burns. To this…


My Bloglebrity

After reading David Lemphers blog (I’m Only Middle-Class! Bloglebrity That is!), I was curious to see which list my blog is on according to Kineda. Like Frank Arrigo, Hey, I’m a B-Lister. 1190

Mary Jo Foley, Journalist Blogger

In an interesting move (to go from blogging journalist to journalist blogger?), Mary Jo Foley says good-bye to Microsoft-Watch to launch a new blog (All about Microsoft) on ZDnet. Yep, this is my new gig. No more Microsoft-Watch for this Microsoft watcher. I decided it was time to move to a place that reflects my opinion that blogging…

Mary Jo Foley’s Microsoft Bloggers: A Who’s Who

Rob Caron (http://blogs.msdn.com/robcaron/default.aspx): Focusing on things happening behind the scenes, don’t let his title, content architect for Visual Studio Team System 2005, fool you….

Dave Glover’s Mini ITX Team Foundation Server

I’ve wanted to build a Mini ITX computer for a long time ’cause it looks like a lot of fun. Dave Glover blogs about the Mini ITX system he built to run Team Foundation Server. If you surf the Mini ITX site, you’ll find pics of projects where people have built Mini ITX systems using a…

ClustrMap for this Blog

For those who read this blog by RSS only, you may not have seen that I recently added a ClustrMap to my blog. I was really curious to see where in the world this blog is read, and it appears to be read more broadly than I anticipated. Thanks!  990


Post Counting Adjustment

I just noticed that I botched my post counting back in April with post #833, which was numbered #832. Ironically, that post was titled, Practice Makes Perfect. So much for perfection. I’m numbering this post as #987 to compensate. 987
