A crisis of faith?

Those of you who know me well may be scared by this screenshot:

I’m doing some work on testing a SSL vpn solution and need to understand the Vista user experience.

The install was pretty simple and my first impression is that Vista seems fine, not sure what the fuss is all about. Of course, I don’t have things like non-working video drivers or anything like that.

Being naked on the wrong day is awkward

One of those funny things someone created when they were probably in a boring meeting, or drunk, is Naked CSS Day.
Yes, this is the day when you’re supposed to switch off your CSS on your sites and let them roam around in the buff.

Alas, I have missed this day once again (it was yesterday), so I’m off in search of something else to make naked and create my own naked day.

Upgrading to Ubuntu 8.04

One of my laptops that gets heavy use is a very old IMB T41.  It’s currently getting upgraded to the first BETA release of Ubuntu 8.04.
I’ll follow up with some thoughts on how it works after it’s finished.

A company that actually does rebates well

I ordered a monitor from TigerDirect last week that included a $50 rebate in the box.  I filled it in and mailed it.
I have about a 50% success rate with actually receiving rebate checks when I buy something which is pretty sad.

Today I got an email from TigerDirect saying that they have received my rebate claim and they are processing it. WOW. It’s funny how a quick email can make a huge difference in the confidence level I have in a company.
