Just like my fellow geeks out there, I love Google Maps. But Andru Edwards over at Gear Live shows a use for this great Web Application that I never even thought of before.

Adobe Needs Attention

Today while working I was trying to open a PDF file from my development site, and my browser locked-up on me. While I am developing, I usually have a lot of applications running and a lot of windows open, so I missed a dialog telling me to turn on automatic updates for Adobe Acrobat Reader 7.

Now I have to admit, I have been very happy with this release of Acrobat. It has proven itself to be fast and light weight when opening a PDF document, and has been flawless at opening within the browser. But this bugged me. Luckily humor saved the day when Adobe’s little update utility popped up with the following (un-edited I swear) dialog.

Adobe Needs Attn...

Ahhh… isn’t that sweet. It just needed a little attention…

I am really getting excited (oh how geeky is that) about the upcoming release of Visual Studio 2005 in November. The funny (well not so funny) thing is the site that I have been working on for over a year now at my job is set to launch next week. We have been pulling off a lot of magic to do some really cool things for our industry.

Boy, I am really vague here I know, but my point is… Things are going to need a heck of a lot of refactoring with the new bits. We also have extensive use of the Enterprise Library, which is different in the .NET 2.0 world.

So, now that I think about it all, I think the word “excited” in my first sentence should be changed to: nervous.

OK, now this really bugs me that things have gotten this bad for families that use the Internet to share with others, but the safety of our family is of utmost importance.


So, no mention of any children(s)’ name(s), no mention of where we live, no mention of any other details that could help sick child predators zero-in on our family!


But, for those of you out there of whom we know and can trust, please fell free to contact us here, and we can provide you with a means to stay up-to-date with our family.
