Here’s a cool link to see how you line up with the candidates on the issues – http://americanpublicmedia.publicradio.org/engage08/. Sorry, my results are undisclosed (but perhaps obvious nonetheless).
Okay, I still don’t get it entirely, but I’m giving it yet another shot. The Facebook Twitter app now seems to work, so I’ll start posting my tweets via mobile and they’ll update my Facebook status as well as Twitter. The Twitter link is on the sidebar for future reference. My Twitter identity is “kosherhog”. [...]
I read this on Slashdot a couple of days ago and found it pretty interesting … RAID is essentially dead because of large disks.

Now here’s a disappointment. I just purchased a Neat Receipts mobile scanner, thinking the size would be incredibly convenient for converting to a paperless office and just found out that the software doesn’t work with 64-bit Vista. I called them and apparently the software will be ready in January 2009, but their suggestion was to return [...]
