Maybe the reason four people said they thought I do a good job was it was SAA Day? Interesting…. Normally I get maybe one or two a week.
Mental Note: Avoid all stores until Monday.
The last time I attempted to go shopping during such a weekend, it was worse than Christmas Eve. Stores were in such a sorry state of disarray. Stuff was thrown everywhere. The store floors looked like they had not been cleaned in days. The employees appeared as though they were survivors of a POW camp. Later, I saw pictures of the previous day’s crowds.
It made me feel really good that I do not work in retail.
This has only happened once:
I received an email asking whether or not I received the email telling me the person left me a phone message to set up a meeting.
This Optimus keyboard looks tight.
Every key of the Optimus keyboard is a stand-alone display showing exactly what it is controlling at this very moment.
Perfect for those people who need to look at the keyboard! It has a Sun keyboard style of a block of 10 keys on the left. Very nice.

Only recently have I come to accept toolbars as something quasi useful. Previously, the trouble they caused more than outweighed the benefits.
A web page on how Google works has me considering recommending the installation of the Google toolbar on all local computers (~3,000) with seeded bookmarks, cache, and temporary files for our web sites. Also, were we to offer a package that would seed the bookmarks for employees and clients, then we could see tremendous increases in our ranking.
[Click through rates] may now be monitored through cache, temporary files, bookmarks and favorites via the Google toolbar or desktop tools. Many have suspected for some time that sites are rewarded for good CTR with a raise in ranking.
Great Site Ranking in Google The Secret’s Out
Ugh. Probably down the road Google will figure out a way to make that appear to be people abusing the system and heavily dock us…. 🙁
The lesson here is that innovation doesn’t always mean starting from scratch. For Nokia, and Apple, open source isn’t an end in itself. It’s a beginning — one that allows these companies to concentrate on what they do best: delivering great products. Ask yourself whether your company is focused on doing the same. Are you using open source to your best advantage?
