Just for fun, be an M&M.

Yeah, sure this isn’t too work-related, but take a break and try this out.  Go and make an M&M of yourself.  Yeah this is me.  Yes those are robot arms.  Thought it added a little techno-geek to my look.  Yes I am growing a soul-patch right now, I couldn’t add anything for the chin, […]

My copy of Vista is coming, I think

I’ll get into the serious hassles I’ve had buying a copy of Vista today for another post on another blog, but assuming the order goes through as planned, I should have my copy of Vista Business 64 bit this week!
Am I excited?  You bet.  A 64 bit OS for my 64 bit processor.  Aero.  All […]

How to have better teleconferences

I can always count on Web Worker Daily to inspire me for something here.  This post on teleconferences has gotten some serious traction and attention, and that’s great!  Why?  Because a lot of teleconferences suck.  Anne posted some great tips, and I can’t find fault with any of them.  But I have one more to […]

And the contest winners are …

First I have to apologize for not getting this out sooner.  It’s not Scot’s fault, it’s mine.  So flaming arrows should be launched in my direction.
Okay first the good news—everyone who entered wins something.  Because we had such generous sponsors, I have something for everyone.  The bad news is that all the apps are for […]

Have you tried EverNote for note taking?

I saw an article on Wired about EverNote today.  The author waxes poetic about the new beta and the creator Stephan Pachikov.  Of course I’m a sucker for beta software and something that is supposed to help me get and stay organized.  Now EverNote is like MSFT’s One Note, except a lot cheaper (like free […]

About a week with Office 2007, so far so good

It’s been about a week now since I switched over to Office 2007 Pro.  I still haven’t played with Power Point (I’m not a big ppt guy any more), Word has been getting a workout for sure.  Excel?  On the other machine here at home that’s had Office 2007 for a month I’ve played a […]

Use steganography to hide files in plain sight

No, steganography isn’t a new dinosaur (I’d be talking about it on my science blog if it were), it’s a way of embedding a file within another file (encrypted, of course) to hide in in plain sight.
LifeHacker has a great article about it that points to easy tools to release your inner spy.

Unlike encryption, which […]

Gaim lets you encrypt your IMs, of course so does Skype

Gina on LifeHacker tells you how to encrypt your IM conversations using the universal IM client Gaim.  It’s simple, easy and … both of you need to be using Gaim for it to work.  I have a love-hate relationship with trying to encrypt IM.  I think one reason that I like Skype is that everything […]
