I purchased and installed Linspire the other day. I have two laptops both running XP. My thought was why not setup Linspire (aka Lindows) on one of the laptops. So my Dell laptop, being the older of the two, was nominated for this task. I figured the HD could use a good formatting anyway. The install was a no problem at all. I was able to attach to our network without a problem as well. I was also able to retrieve files from the storage server (a windows server) without any sort of challenges. I ......

Fire Drills and Faulty Elevators
We had a fire drill today. Our building consists of 10 floors. We are on the 8th floor. Of course during a fire drill (or a real fire for that matter) you cannot use the elevators so we had to walk down. Walking down isn't that bad. For a fire drill they evacuate all 10 floors. We stood outside for about 30 minutes, of course I am thinking of all things I could be doing instead of standing outside. At the time of the fire drill I was working on our email server and had a reboot to do. Time to go ......

Starting next week I am going to be working from home two days a week, Monday and Thursday.

I am starting to really hate my commute, 32 miles one way, the traffic going home seems ......

I am getting a little annoyed...or maybe more than a little. I was on vacation last week. The week before going on vacation I was in a meeting and I clearly stated that I would be on vacation the following week..etc. So while on vacation I was checking my email and what do I get? An email asking for a meeting! From the very person who I told I would be on vacation! Today I am cleaning up my inbox and I just re-read an email asking for images of products. Now..I have told the person asking me for ......

First Post
Here it is the traditional first post. A little about myself... I started “messing” with computers when I was about 10 years old. Like most on a Commodore. I taught myself how to program in BASIC. When I was about 16 my parents purchased me an Apple from a co-worker of my Dad's. I would spend hours upon hours in front of that green and black screen just hammering away at the keys. My career in the IT field has been quite interesting. I didn't immediately start working in the IT field. ......
