VISTA is not quite the "view" we are looking for...

With the marketing giant, Microsoft, you cannot deny that Vista is the best operation system, ever. Right? Hmmm...

Jammin!, Google, and Good Deed

I thought while I was jammin' out, listening to some Miles Davis that I should post an update...

Internet Explorer <LI> rendering problem

If you are looking at this post, you are probably already aware of the issues that Internet Explorer (read: EXPLODER) forces developers to deal with when using the
  • HTML tag to do certain things. Most all of the dynamic menu systems use this tag, so Internet Explorer is placing a huge hurdle in front of us.

  • Whoa! Free Image editing program!!! (Paint.Net)

    Now, I am sure that this post will generate some comments (sent or not) about GIMP. I have not used GIMP because at home I have a full version of Photoshop CS. However, at work right now I do not have any image editing abilities other than what the standard "Paint" application and Microsoft Office offer. Nearly everyone knows that those options are horrible. I tried installing GIMP some weeks ago, but the install conflicted with a GAIM/Jabber (now called Pidgin - that story is yet another reason to HATE AOL) installation I have and I really do not want to mess with that.

    Interesting Social Networking Web Site

    I know this isn't new, but I just recently paid some attention to the LinkedIn social networking site. I found it to be a very interesting and creative spin on using the social networking power found on the Internet to connect co-workers and former co-workers. Not only that, it contains features to help each other advance themselves professionally. I have only been a member for about a week, but my first impression of this web site is very positive.

    Net Neutrality

    I found a good blog post on Net Neutrality today. However, the video it incorporates is even better. This video is a MUST SEE for anyone who likes the Internet even a little bit!

    Orlando .Net CodeCamp by ONETUG

    The 2nd annual Orlando .Net CodeCamp event completed yesterday as an overall success. I thought it was once again very ell put together and managed. Thank you to the members of ONETUG and especially Shawn Weisfeld, Jessica Sterner, and Ken Tucker. You are all very valuable to the local .Net developer community. Also, a huge thank you goes to Seminole Community College for letting us use their facilities for this important event. We couldn't have had this without you.

    "FrontPage Killer"

    You can easily tell from a simple search on Google (or your favorite search engine) that the term "FrontPage killer" gets used a lot in reference to many different web site creation programs. This terms has been used by supporters of products like Macromedia (whooops! Adobe) Dreamweaver, Adobe GoLive, and so on.

    2nd Annual .Net CodeCamp

    This is the second time they are putting on this FREE event. Last year was great!!! There were freebies for everyone (tech books, shirts, and more), including lunch. It appears that lunch is probably paid for again, but they make no mention of the other freebies this time. Last year it was held at UCF, but they moved it to SCC this year. If you are at all interested in .Net, this is a great event for learning, sharing, and networking.

    Interesting! Google Trends... What EXACTLY is it telling us?

    I found out about Google Trends some time ago and I briefly played with its features, but I had forgotten about it until today when I read about it again in my current issue of Maximum PC. In reading it, I finally thought of a good reason for me to use it.
