Pictures on .Text not working

I'm tired of telling people it is not me that is stopping the pictures on my blog from not working... it is to do with the host site and .Text. If you have this problem with the blog you will just have to wait for .Text to get fixed. There is nothing I can do about it! Sorry!

Windows CE 5.0 Question
OK well I have a few questions on Windows CE that I am sure someone out there will be able to answer, and they go something like this: 1. Does CE 5.0 support TKIP? 2. How stable is the new CE platform, are there any known issues that I should be aware of? 3. What components have been removed that were in CE 4.2? 4. Are hotfixes being released and installed in the same manner as 4.2? Now I know that some of these questions are fairly vague but I am trying to figure out if we should upgrade from 4.2 ......

Stormhoek wines to Sponsor London Girl Geek Dinner!

It is official, Stormhoek wines are proudly sponsoring the London Girl Geek Dinner!

There were mixed reviews from the last London Girl Geek Dinner on the wine. This time we have rose and red to try rather than red and white... so it should be different and interesting. I hope they go down with the girls as well as the last time.

Thanks Stormhoek!

Where should I go on vacation in November

I have been trying to figure out where to go on vacation in November... mid to end of november to be precise... It has to be somewhere warm and sunny to get away from the cold english winter weather... and ideas or suggestions...

I am fussy, it has to be somewhere interesting and have lots to do, and not be too expensive to just go on my own.

Should we have a face of technology 2005?
Here is a question and one that a friend of mine brought up. Should we have a face of Technology. This would be someone who represents technology, gadgets and software around the world? The idea is that one person could represent the technological voice in images, voice and video. So far there has been no one big loud voice in technology. (OK I am going to get a lot of shouts back for that... but you will see what I mean when I explain a little better I hope!) Yes we have Bill Gates and all his people ......
