Averatec C3500 (TabletPC) review
It's been about 2 months since I recieved my TabletPC. I've used it at
2 conferences and up until recently used it pretty heavily at work. I
don't feel like I have gotten everywhere on it, but I think I have used it
enough to give it a decent review.
Review ScaleI hate those # out of 5 stars things,
because it's too hard to judge objectively. Let's reduce the scale a bit.
Thumbs up; no thumb; and thumbs down. Thumbs up means that it is way cool
and I love it; no thumb means it's OK, but I'm not wowed;...
My next career...
I think I found what I want to do for my next career. I was asked by a
friend to try to break into his network. I first of all told him that
I'm probably best at telling you whether the perimeter is safe (there are some
points along the hacking path that I'm not quite proficient in --yet; I can,
however, do a fairly good job of attacking an application). I also got the
necessary stuff from him to try to break in (because hacking someone else's
network without permission is illegal).
So 2 days ago I started trying to break...
New PDA is on its way!
I think I mentioned awhile back that I had lost my PDA (an Axim
x5) while returning from Seattle back in November. I've been feeling
fairly disconnected through all this (no PDA; no TabletPC at work; and minimal
blog reading at work); hopefully that disconnted feeling is about to go
I bought a refurbished Dell Axim X30 Advanced (because I'm cheap). This
baby has the new 624Mhz PXA270 XScale processor. I've read that these
things fly! Since I'll be the ultimate test of that theory (with all my
emulation crap), I'll let you know (My X5 was a 400 Mhz PXA255 and at...
So, in case you haven't noticed, I haven't been blogging a lot lately.
Mostly because I haven't had the time. I used to blog at work during times
when my main machine was tied up compiling or JIT'ing. I have been trying
to avoid using company resources for this (for fear that the smack down will
happen and I will no longer be allowed to blog at all... if I do it solely on my
time then everything is cool). I had also been using my tablet to
blog with (as well as to test stuff and read other blogs offline),...
Hiring blog versus real blog
My good friend and Co-worker -- D.code -- has just recently set up a spaces
blog (I won't bore you with thelocation). D. told me that he did this
because if he ever goes on the job search (something I personally think may
never happen) he wants to pointto his pristine non-ranting blog.
Personally I think his idea is crap. I'd rather a future employer know
that "yes, he gets angry about stuff at times, but he doesn't appear to be
violent... in fact his rants are funny." I guess, too, I try to make my
blog interesting. If I...
Comment spam: a plan for a solution...
Those of us blogging on DotNetJunkies have a problem blogging (we don't have
the access to install anything new to prevent comment spamming directly on our
blogs. I think that I have come up with most of the solution. Here's
I want to set up a new gmail account for my blogs (something I don't have
right now). I'm going write a service that will run on my machine at
home. This service will ping my gmail account for new comments to my
blog. It will then scan the message boddy and if it finds more than 2
Blogger for sale (kind of)
One of the reasons I started my blog was so that others could discover me which would ultimately make it easier for me to make contracts for help as well as contacts for possible jobs in the future (both contracting and working as a normal 9-to-5er). I've been meaning to maintain a regular listing of what I want and what I can do so that potential employers could come calling. (I'm lazy and I hate job searching... I've always felt that it would make my life so much easier if people would come to me). Anyway, a recent Scoble post...
Jay's Blog Reboot...
I have now established a second blog at MSN Spaces (beta). I plan
on blogging my religious obsehave torvations as well as some of my political
opinions there. It has been really hard to bite my tongue during the last
election... I know I didn't do a great job of keeping quiet; now I don't
BTW, I started using theVisualBlogger 2004 beta. We'll see how it goes
(I need/want to be able to offline my blog writing).
