Memory Is Hot


Note to self…

Never yank memory out of a server that was just running multiple servers in Hyper-V and maxed out on memory.

At least not without something to put them down on…fast! I guess they don’t call them heat spreaders for nothing.

Owwwwwwwwwww. Time to go ice my tech pimp hand.

Totally worth it to see this tho…

What's a few gigabytes between friends?

BarCampBirmingham2 Slated For April

This could be the last BarCampBirmingham EVER! So don't you DARE miss it!

Finally, the second iteration of BarCampBirmingham is a GO!

I was peeved beyond all measure at missing the inaugural BarCampBirmingham. I don’t plan to make the same mistake again.

BCB2 will take place from 9a-3p on Saturday, April 12th at the phenomenal Innovation Depot.

Just like last time, there will be a pre-event mixer from 8–11p on Friday, April 11th at the Jim ‘N Nick’s Bar-B-Q in Five Points. 

For those of you who’ve never heard the term BarCamp before, well…check this out. And if you want to know Why? As in WhyBarCampBirmingham2, well…click here.

In the spirit of BarCamp, I’ve already started working on my merit badges…

  • Made the banner above using current BCB2 logo elements. Anyone who wants to use it for BCB2 promotion is free to snag a copy.
  • Made a couple of iCalender files for folks who want to quickly drop the mixer and/or BCB2 on their scheduling tool of choice.

I expect to be whipping up a few more trinkets and doo-dads here and there for BarCampBirmingham2 between now and April.

Get Your Windows Mobile Next On


As in Version 7, that is.

You won’t find a better writeup than the one at InsideMicrosoft.

The 3 point thrust of Windows Mobile 7?

  • Touch control
  • Motion control
  • Media features

Sounds a lot like…nope, I’m not gonna say it.

Oh…and you’re looking at a 2009 timeframe for this release, at least.

Gentleman, The World’s First Bionic Man

Sweet Mother of Moses!

This takes me right back to the early and mid-70s. First-grade, to be exact…
