Linked in is a great networking site.  It specializes in professional networking.  I have found many opportunities through my links.  I also really appreciate the great feedback that people I used to work with or for leave.  This let's me know that I did my job.  You can check out my profile here.  If you haven't used LinkedIn check it out and start networking.  What else do you have to do? :)

Office Labs: Speed Launch
I have been a big fan of Launchy for some time. I find that it helps me be just a tiny bit more productive each day. It at least let's me not have to search through my start menu for the program I want to launch. However, today I found a new alternative provide by Microsoft Office Labs. This application has some real potential to replace Launchy on my laptop. I will continue to use and let everyone know what I find out. Check it out here: ......

Ok, I have decided to let everyone know about this great company that is offering a very unique way to login in with OpenIDs. Vidoop gives you an image matrix that you use to figure your password for that access instance. Your access grid is drawn based on image categories you setup during the setup of your account. I find that this access method is very secure. The biggest issue I have with it is that I often get confused on what categories I setup. Luckily Vidoop has a secure method of image categories ......

Soft Skills: Don't Get Stagnant!
So almost 2 years ago I left my job of 7 years because of some issues with senior management. I loved the technology we were creating, I had climbed the ladder to be the Manager of Technical Services, and I had made close relationships with the people who worked with me. What I learned through leaving I find very valuable. Don't become stagnant! When I was looking for my next job, a recruited told me that by being at one company for 7 years was a red flag. This confused me. I thought being at one ......

What MobileMe? Vista? Part 3

Ok so I did a little research and I found that the new version of iTunes pushed the MobileMe client to my Vista PC.  I like Apple products, however I think if Apple keeps these tactics up of pushing unwanted software through iTunes (which we are forced to use by Apple in order to use their MP3 players), I will have to buy a new MP3 player, and stop using Apple products.  Microsoft please hit the mark with Zune 3.

What MobileMe? Vista?
Ok so I was having issues with my wireless connection so I went into my Network and Sharing on my Vista Ultimate PC. I found the following: Notice the MobileMe Preferences? Has Microsoft loaded this through a service pack or update? Or has iTunes loaded this through one of their updates? I don't subscribe to MobileMe and it isn't something I chose to install. I wish software vendors would stop forcing their wears on us. I assume this is Apple doing this as they did the same thing with Safari. I will ......
