Make This Your Home Page
I've never used a browser home page. Or rather, I always use "about:blank" as my home page. I want the browser to open quickly so that I can go where I want, and I rarely always go to the same site. Rod Trent recently blogged about switching from Google.com to Live.com, because he always searches. My first response to that: use IE7's built-in search bar. It pains me to think about newbies who continually go to Comcast.net or MSN.com because that's how it was setup and they don't know any better.

It's been a while since I've posted, so I just wanted to throw something up quick to let folks know I'm still professionally alive. The past few weeks have just been filled with rather mundane tasks: racking (and reracking) servers (including cabling, etc.), diagramming server room power circuits, installing SMS 2003 SP2 & WSUS SP1, and now installing Citrix PS4. Nothing brilliant has come from any of it, and I hate regurgitating industry news (unless it's something I think is especially hot), thus the lack of posts. I can't promise anything in the near future, but we'll see what happens.....

The missing link
Tip o' the hat to Matt Jadud for involutarily showing me GeoURL. Basically you insert on a webpage their meta tags with coordinates of your physical location, and then you can see what's near you. It sounds goofy, but I think its neat. So you'll now see the link to it on the side menu. I'm using the coordinates of my current client location since that's where I'm spending my time these days.
