Distributed Applications

What is needed to build distributed applications.

Tim Ewald responds to Don’s question about the validity of the the four tenets. Don asked for input… This quote really struck home: And finally, I’m not sure I want to build on a layer designed to factor HTTP in on top of a layer that was designed to factor it out. Considering that I am […]

TimmyOnTime » Time Management meets Instant Messaging

I have been meaning to blog about these guys for a few days now.  Check it out TimmyOnTime » Time Management meets Instant Messaging I think the idea of using instant messaging to communicate with a server application is brilliant.  I also get a real kick out of chatting with Timmy.

Sansa e260

Podcast aggregators

One of my “things to do” has been to find a decent podcast aggregator.  Since I got my Sansa e260 I have been listening to a lot more podcasts and it is starting to become a chore to keep track of new episodes.

Open Office

Biztalk Server

I was replaced by a biztalk server
