Most of my posts don’t have too many pictures in them, but this one has a fair few….I was thinking today about logos and the certifications behind them (or vice versa depending on how you look at it). What makes a good logo? What logos do people most often use? I’ll take some of my certifications and we’ll look at the logos.

Today is official College Colours Day, which means wear your college colours to support your university. Everyone needs to wear Gold & Black to support the best University of them all – Purdue! Boiler Up!
Just the other day I was telling you about the “interesting” things that were going to be happening in IE 8. Well, yesterday the IE team decided to release beta 2 to the public. It’s here, and, well…to say the least, it’s interesting…
Recently an austronaut helped take viruses to a new level – no not a level wherein it manifests itself quicker than before, not one that gets all the details without making it look like a virus, nope, just “to a new level”. Outer space!
Quite often technology is cool and recently I’ve been looking at alternatives to “calm the natives” and help deliver a streamlined service to the user base I have to look after every day. I’ve come across Office Communications Server 2007 and from what I can see so far, it seems pretty plush.
So the Internet Explorer team have been quite busy over at Microsoft readying IE 8 and offering some new features and options…One of the cool ones from what I can see so far is something that certain firewall programs currently offer and one you see in Outlook, but now to have it as part of IE is all the better.
OK, so I’ve had a three-cell D MagLite for years now and the other day she was running low on batteries, so I had to nip down to B&Q to get some before I went for a weekend away in Lihou and there she was staring at me, right next to the batteries, the new MagLite LED.
I’ve been gone for a few days on a deserted island and when I come back to check the feeds and the things I’ve missed, what do I come across? Microsoft hires Jerry Seinfeld on retainer for $10 million!
So, yesterday while we were sleeping here “across the pond” our friends in Redmond, the SBS team, decided to RTM SBS 2008. I’ve said it in the past, I’m not a real big fan of SBS, although it does fit in to quite a few “little” markets, but it can’t be upgraded very easily…at any rate, what does this RTM mean?
Last Sunday, August 17th, I forgot my good old friend CD-ROM’s birthday. Back in 1982, Sony, Philips and the Germans unleashed this beast on to us here in the real world. At first, and back in 1982, what a dream it was. Played music, was much better quality than a cassette tape and it lasted a lot longer and was less cumbersome (remember when cassette’s used to get the tape stuck when trying to eject it from an old type player?)…
Well, 25 years on and has this technology seen its last days, or are they numbered?
