Well this is a strange one...  lost HTTP, Telnet, EMail after a failed attempt at installing an air-card.  Only FTP works now.  Weird.

In the hardware mode this weekend.. weighing my upgrade options. CPU is i7-2600 @ 3.4 GHz so I think I have some life left in the box. I'm open top suggestions.

RAM and clearing out the neglected %temp% was a quick performance boost so far.  I just acquired an old server case which may have distracted me into a new fun build.  Server2k vintage so innards are useless, but the massive  (3)5" bay tall hunk of steel looks so cool.

Had a little too much time on my hands today, so for kicks I plugged in all my old USB drives into one machine. 5TB total :)

Was feeling nostalgic and thought I'd key in friendfeed.com into my browser....   nothing but a barren white screen :(

Facebook looks like Twitter looks like Facebook and G+ is ... well.... a good place for a little Google Juice.  I'm ready for another social revolution... will someone please code something fresh?

Am I just hopelessly nostalgic for the days of ole or does anyone else out there share my sentiments?

Don't just broadcast, interact! How are you engaging?
Engagement is the name of the game when it comes to opening the door to building relationships using social media.

This article represents my experience with online customer service as well. Squeaky wheels do get greased.

I've received much better customer service through social media than I ever did through the old methods. I don't even bother using the old "contact us" methods any more.

I've read and heard good things about Audio Technica. They've got several models of active noise canceling headphones, ranging from $80 to $350 - and they've got specs on their site.

Whenever someone's taking To Go orders at work I'm always in for either a Sausage or Meatball grinder. Fair price & great portions. I've never been disappointed.

This is one of the few Burger Kings with trashcans outside for those who eat in their cars so we don't have to toss our trash in the back seat. Don't know why this is a rare commodity with thus chain.
