Wolfowitz confronted by retarded liberals
I found this entry on LeanLeft.com, a leftist blog that I monitor. It's author cries that Wolfowitz claimed that if you don't agree with his interpretation of America' foreign policy, then you hate America.

Iraq War III - Safire
William Safire's latest op-ed is a concise summary of all the reasons America should stick on in Iraq - "failure is not an option". Set aside the loss of U.S. prestige or America's credibility in dealing with other rogue nations acquiring nuclear weapons. Iraq itself would likely split apart. Shiites in the south would resist...

Review Falling out of Cars, by Jeff Noon,
(This is a first draft review by Alex McLintock. The full review will appear in http://news.DiverseBooks.com/ soon)Jeff Noon was one of the brightest stars of British Science Fiction though he never really admitted to writing SF. He has a strong following in SF Fandom as his books often involve fantasy versions of Britain inspired by drugs, virtual reality, curry, and Alice in Wonderland. His latest novel "Falling out of Cars" owes more than a small debt to the apocalyptic fiction of the seventies including JG Ballards Crystal World/The Drought, but thankfully not "Crash". Let me warn you now - even if it spoils the surprise - this is not a happy novel. Marlene Moore is recovering from the death of her daughter of the psychotropic disease affecting the whole of Britain (possibly the world!). Imagine the whole country half spaced out on drugs and you get the idea. It makes it difficult for her to carry on with her career as a journalist and almost impossible to drive. Whereas in ...

Developer Tools Roadmap
The Microsoft Developer Tools Roadmap 2004-2005 not only gives you an overview of where the Microsoft Developer tools are going but, it also gives a great overview of the cool features showcased at the PDC. This is a great read to get a quick overview of some of the new features, in particular for the "Whidbey" release, as well as a brief mention about the next release of Visual Studio codenamed "Orcas".

Wireless Network Conflicts
More and more WiFi networks are cropping up everywhere these days. If you are in an urban office building, you may notice new SSIDs cropping up in your wireless configuration. With all these waves in the air, it is becoming difficult to stay connected to your own network, when you may be picking up signals from numerous other ones in the same area. One thing you can do to remedy this situation is to change the channel that your access point and wireless cards use to communicate. This will help your hardware differentiate itself from other surrounding networks. Linksys suggests that you use channel 1 or 11 as alternates to the default (6). The idea here is that channels 1, 6 and 11 are far enough apart from each other that there is no overlap in the signals. Recently I used this fix and it worked like a charm, but it leaves me wondering how long it will be until someone else sets up on channel 1 in the same area. To change the channel on your access point, log in, and select the ...

Up & Running with 1.2
Well I finally installed the PDC framework bits on my machine, and my web site is now running .NET 1.2. Everything went very smoothly. The code “just worked” without any changes at all. I'm now looking forward to playing with the real MasterPages and replacing the setup I use now, which is a modified version of Paul's MasterPages. One thing that I noticed though: The ASP.NET 1.2 Web Service Extension was prohibited by default on my installation. Has anyone else noticed this? I'm running Server '03 Enterprise if that matters.

Welcome New Blogger
I'd like to welcome to the ranks Filipe Fortes. For those of you that don't know, he is a PM for the Avalon team, and he's moving his blog over here from the GotDotNet blogs. We're going to try to get his posts and comments moved over sometime in the near future. For right now, it's great to have him on board. Hey Filipe, how about getting the rest of your team to blog? ;)

TeledyN: How to Slay the RIAA
TeledyN: How to Slay the RIAA: Music is not like painting or playwriting or really most of the other arts: Music is intimately temporal, epherimal, abstract and fluid. Music is here one moment, gone the next, and in the days before the mass-distribution recording, we expected music to be fresh, even the old favourites. As John Cage noticed when they first started to compare the electrical signals on recording wires, it is impossible for even the finest performer to exactly replicate a prior performance; John says he stopped listening to recorded music the day he attended a performance of some orchestral piece and a small boy seated behind him told his father afterward, 'That's not how it goes!' -- records are only that, a record, a snapshot of some moment in time, a moment past, stale, for the most part, forgotten as the artist has already moved on to something new.With all this free sample music out there, constantly replenished and refreshed, sure there's lots for a small rural ...

Revision
Among the reasons I started writing in this medium was so I could have some forum to vent my rage and confusion, particularly in the wake of a "preemptive" American war. It gave me some way to argue with the fools and vampires who howled in favor of an occupation, who chanted in blind obedience or wallowed in tortured belief of the occupier of the White House. This purpose no longer seems valid. There's no longer anyone I can even pretend that I'm arguing with. I can't find an intelligent blogger who is willing or able to address the sickening...

PDC Community Application - Away from PDC?
I started up the PDC Community Application as soon as I got home because I had used it to download all the powerpoint presentations and code samples from the sessions that I attended or wanted to attend. It worked real nice while I was at PDC. When I was viewing a session, there was a link to view the powerpoint or code samples (which are saved locally on my computer). However, now that I am home, the links for the powerpoint slides and code samples don't show up. I still have all the files saved locally, but they are saved under session numbers which isn't very user friendly. Has anyone else figured out a way to change a setting or two to let it know that the files are still saved locally and get the links to show up? This is a fantastic and very helpful app if I can get it to work!

Fighting Spam
To reduce spam, I have configured our mail server to use the blacklist from relays.ordb.org and bl.spamcop.net. I have also edited /etc/mail/access to use a portion of the list from spamlist.org and to block these addresses. The spamlist.org list is a bit excessive (use with caution!).Meanwhile, if you are interested, you can also shoot Sid the Spammer here.

More userpics
It's been a long, hard struggle, but it's here at least.... You can now buy extra userpics. Just hit the store and select "Extra userpics", which brings your userpic limit to 20 50. Note that you must already have a paid account to begin with.People with permanent accounts have had their limit raised to 20 50 already, so don't be surprised if the cart doesn't let you try to buy something you already have.whitaker had this feature ready about 6-7 months ago, but we'd been waiting for massive bandwidth and storage. Now that we've got our Akamai service (for bandwidth) and NetApp appliance (for storage), we just had to flip a switch and turn this all on. (it took less time than writing this post...)I'm sure a lot of people will be happy about this announcement (it's our #1 feature request), but a lot of people will inevitably be angry as well. Let me address what I guess will be the three major complaints:Why can't free users buy more userpics? We don't want all those other paid ...

MCAD!
Well, this last week I studied and took both the 70-315 and the 70-320 tests and passed both! Pretty awesome! For me, 70-315 was (by far) the easier of the two exams. 320 was a real beating, covering XML, Web Services, Windows Services, Security (COM+, Integrated), and versioning... PAINFUL! Luckily, I did well on it and that was my last exam... So, I'm now an MCAD! Now, on to my MCSD. :-)
