Lightning Project

This is seriously big news. I’ve blogged about this before. This is great news. As I’ve said before, this is the missing link to penetrating the market. Going against commercial heavyweight Outlook. One thing I didn’t see mentioned was Address Book Integration/enhancement. As I’ve suggested before, the Address Book has a nice feel to it, […]

Your not allowed to be guilty

Considering our overburdened legal system, and understaffed courthouses, this is really pretty wrong: A federal judge refused to accept a guilty plea Tuesday from a former America Online software engineer accused of stealing 92 million e-mail addresses and selling them to spammers. So he can’t plead guilty to a crime he admits to committing because […]

Thank Scott and David

This is by far the most interesting campaign so far. If you love Thunderbird, send $1 to the “thanks Scott and David for Thunderbird” Campaign.. There a tiny team, and get a lot of stuff done.

2005 Year of the PIM

2004 was without question the year of the browser. A year ago, for many people IE was the only browser they knew of. Now with tons of mainstream press, it’s becoming all too common to see Firefox everywhere. Even before 1.0 there were amazing, glowing reviews. Now with 1.0 out, the press is becoming hard […]

Did Microsoft try to kill iTunes?

No clue, but it sure does sound strange. I’m curious what exactly the update was? There’s no mention of what specific update, only that it was something that applies to SP2.

Winter Break is upon us

That’s right. Final 6/6 is done. That means it’s time for 1 (6/6) Winter Break. I’ve got a few things on my agenda. The first thing that needs to get done is a clean install of windows on my laptop. So I’ll be backing up this afternoon/evening and wiping tonight. Tomorrow I’ll start copying data […]

Where’s Rob: I’ve been omitted

Everyone loves those Where’s Waldo books. Well, if your good at them: I NEED YOUR HELP. That’s right. Apparently I’m either missing, or out of place in the Ad. There are reports of a few names not in alphabetical order, as well as a few inverted (Lastname Firstname). Your odds are about 1 in 10,000. […]

TSA locks up terrorist #1

Via Aebrahim’s blog, John Barlow’s story of the TSA “protecting America”. I’d say it’s a must read, though pretty depressing. A real brilliant example of how America is becoming “safer”. Sadly, it’s pretty safe to say the government to date has spent thousands (plural) of dollars “protecting” us from John. Good luck to him. Good […]

Geeky Romance Novel

Well Slashdot’s latest poll asks what your least read was… well I don’t know, but I think it would be fun if we had a tech romance novel, something for us geeks to read, just like women like those romance novels. So print out this blog post, put on something comfortable… awe heck just read, […]

FIREFOX AD IS OUT: 2 Full Pages!

Sweet. 2X the glory, 2X the fun, 2X the exposure. Stinks being in school, if I was working in the city, and on the train, tomorrow would be a fun ride seeing all the NYT papers open on the ride in! Oh well… back to studying.
