Friday Morning







Check out this sick system:
Quad Core Laptop w/ all the trimmings...I don't think this will make it in the "Year of living frugally"! I customized mine and it came out to $4400...What do you get?







Installing Server 2008 and Exchange 2007 on VMware Workstation 6.0...








Being a guy who doesn't like to read the manual, I tried this the old fashin way, and I spent a half a day working on this including one complete infrastructure build. It did finally work with no issues.

Glorious Day


I feel like a weight has been lifted from my shoulders.


My GMAIL inbox is EMPTY!!!!!!


Thanks to some hot tips, I was quickly and easily able to archive my entire mailbox. How did I do it...


  1. Choose ALL to select all of the message on your first inbox page.

  2. You should receive an option to select all messages available in your inbox...choose it.

  3. Select your action on all the messages. I choose Mark as Read.

  4. Then I repeated 1 & 2, and applied an Archive Label to all the messages.

  5. Then I archived them all.

In case I need an email, I can search for it, but I don't have to look at all of the unread emails or inbox message count.


How Wonderous!!!

Back from Winter Break

Well, I took some time off from Blogging over winter break as I took about 10 days away from anything job related.

What did I do...
Partially drywalled my basement wall
Partially painted my basement
Built some cool StarWars Lego sets:)

I hope to get back to weekly blog entries as the school year ramps up. I should have some kewl topics especially with the launch of Server 2008.

Another big development to follow will the social experiment of the year. My wife and I are trading our cars in and getting a signal Toyota prius! I'll keep you posted.
