Finding a home for Microsoft Vista

I've got pencil in hand, tapping the desk, trying to invent think of some more deductions, but there doesn't seem to be anything written on the ceiling. Tapping..., tapping..., tapping...

This weekend, April 18-20, I'll be in Troy, Michigan for the 6th annual Penguicon convention. The Penguicon is an interesting convention, because it's both a Science Fiction convention, and a Linux convention.

Here Comes IPv6... Guess Who is Not Ready

Here is that reading. more>>
