Windows Vista and VPNs

As if Vista didn't have enough problems already with hardware compatibility issues its been reported that Microsoft Vista does not support most VPNs currently on the market. If you don't know what a VPN is you have nothing to worry about, otherwise this puts a serious damper on the business user.


I was shopping a week ago and I saw Vista everywhere. This isn't acceptable, my next purchase will have Vista removed immediately. I just hope there are no issues with putting XP on a machine that is plagued with the term 'Vista Ready'.


Windows Vista; 'The "WOW" starts now.'


My experience with Kelly & Associates Appraisers Stafford VA

We contacted Kelly & Associate Appraisers on Thursday of last week, they said they would come on Friday if it wasn't pouring rain. Well it was wet on Friday so they said they would be here Monday at 1pm. Sunday comes and we do a little cleaning up, Monday comes and around noon we take off work and do some final clean up so that the place looks its best.


The waiting begins ...


Well at 2:15pm we get a call from Kelly & Associates when a very friendly gentlemen says 'We were just getting ready to head out your way and we just wanted to make sure someone would be there.' I told him 'we are no longer interested you were supposed to be here an hour and 15 minutes ago.' To which he responded in a highly agitated and sarcastic voice; 'OK GOOD LUCK' after which he immediately hung up!


Just one of the many fine quality businesses in the area.

Ubuntu Mail Command

After receiving the message 'Cound not find the mail command anywhere.' I quickly discovered that the Mail command was indeed missing. Apparently this is the default for Ubuntu Dapper and you need to install the mailx package.

Ubuntu Server

Its been a while since Ive installed Linux and let me tell you this was a walk in the park. With little effort I installed Ubuntu with LVM across a couple disks, SSH, and Samba and it took no time at all.


Just look at the beautiful screenshots;
