1-year Anniversary of a Blog Post

I had a couple of people remind me that it had been just about year since my last "blog" post.  Well, rather than let it lapse completely, I'll make this post.

You can STILL hear from me though by keeping up to date on our bi-monthly podcast or by following me on Twitter.  Both will give you a mix of personal and professional (website) information so you can keep up with what is going on behind the scenes. 

Have no fear: the podcast will soon be here!!

For those of you that are desperately worried (and I am sure there are just TONS of you), the podcast for this week was delayed thanks to AMD.  Really, they made me leave my warm cozy home to head for Canada (eh?) for a day and it just happens to have wrecked our podcast schedule.  Not to mention Valentine's Day - and I really wanted to spend it with Jeremy and Josh.

Interview with former Mod Tigsman

I have the extreme pleasure in posting an interview with a member who
is a first class guy as well as a retired (no, no...not retarded ) Mod,
and one of the founding fellows here: Tigsman.
I can only say this, Ron was instrumental in helping me feel welcome
here and to try my hand at doing more than lurking around. This place
truly wouldn't have been nor could have continued to be what it is
without him. OK, OK, enough outta me, let him tell his story.

Just a quick note about something that just rubs me the wrong way, I'll setup a scenario.  You are a Vista user, you are listening to some MP3s in Windows Media Player.  You are having a great time.  Time to leave, so just close WMP and off you go...but wait, why is the music still playing?

Well, I've been off my feed for a few months and I have a backlog of

schedule change (after 25 years of the same schedule!) has got me doing
72 hours a week till tomorrow. Enough excuses, here we go!

Thoughts on a Refreshing Interview with AMD

Mario Rivas, Executive VP of the Computing Products Group
sat down for a very enlightening interview hosted by CRN.  The reporter asked tough questions, and Mario
gave some surprisingly honest and straightforward answers.  As we all know, AMD has had a rough time of
it, and the editorials about the perception of their external marketing and
product placement have been rearing their heads as of late. 

Happy Thanksgiving!

I know we have lots of tech news abound today, and we will still be bringing it to you throughout the day.  But, I do ask that every takes a bit of time out of their busy schedule to do some reading and remembering of the events that occurred 6-years ago today.  Be proud of where you live, be proud of our society even if you don't agree with it all the time. 

Not yours!!!

SCO's lawsuit against Novell has hit a huge speed bump.  A major part of their case was based on the claim that SCO owned UNIX and UnixWare, a claim that those who have been working with UNIX since it's inception have been saying is fallacious, from the very beginning of this legal battle.  The judge has agreed with them, UNIX and all associated copyrights belong to Novell.  SCO nows owes quite a bit of money to Novell as a result of the ruling and will hopefully mean that SCO will shut up about Linux ...

There is a lot of choice when it comes to web browsers nowadays, and not simply a decision between IE and Firefox.  If you are looking for something different, you can get Opera on the PC now, or at least a beta version of it.  If you do try it, drop by the General Forum and let people know what you thought.  As well, our inflatable moderator noticed that the free version AdAware 2007 has appeared, so thank him, and let us know how it works.

Well, hope you all had a pleasant weekend. Here in the states we all celebrated Memorial Day....it was an auto racing extravaganza for me on Sunday as well. Grand Prix of Monaco, Indianapolis 500 and the NASCAR 600 from Charlotte, NC. All in all over 1300 miles of racing. Man, I'm in heaven. Here it is Tuesday already and back to work we go, so today I have a real pleasure to introduce a quiet but very special Mod here, uddarts.
