I’m trying out this sweet plug-in for the Windows version of iTunes. After installing this plug-in, you can click on the musical notes at the bottom of w.Bloggar and it will insert information about the currently playing song wherever your cursor is located. This page lists plugins for Winamp versions 2,3, and 5 as well as iTunes (the one I’m using).Read More

My car hates me. Or it should. Last week I made two round trips to SD. Last Friday night, I returned from SD, and Akumi and I left the following Saturday morning to drive up to San Francisco.

Tech-Ed 2004: I Won a Media Center PC!!!
Last night I attended the Microsoft Office System party at the Hard Rock Cafe. The “Unauthorized Rolling Stones” were playing and the crowd was into it. I was primarily there for the food at first, but after a few free drinks, I was having a jolly good time talking to people. Even met a techie from Juneau, Alaska.

Especially as I didn’t figure the Alaskan government would be using .NET.Read More

Bush outsourcing campaign activities to India
According to a new report, the Bush Administration has taken its strong support for outsourcing further than previously thought – opting to move key political operations offshore. India’s Hindustan Times reports that, during a 14 month period from 2002 to 2003 when the Republican Party was playing up patriotism, its fund-raising and vote-seeking campaign was performed in part by two call centers located in India….

A coworker sent me this really neat car commercial. It makes really good use of soothing subtle sound effects as the car drives around the scerene landscape. You may need to turn up your speakers a bit to hear it.Read More
