Gas Prices Part 2: Crude Oil Boog-a-Loo

X-Ray Your Head

X-Ray Your Head

Birds of a Feather

The North Jersey .NET User Group meeting tried something a little different tonight –an idea called “Birds of a Feather.” Actually, the meeting would better be described as a “roundtable” discussion lead by a panel of experts fielding pre-submitted questions.

Now that the dust has cleared from the Disney shareholder meeting, analysts are trying to make sense of the move to both keep and get rid of Eisner. With both sides, declaring victory, this is going to take a while to figure out who has won and who has lost....

Today, is S.H.I.T. day, better known as “So Happy It’s Thursday.“ Smoothium.com is functional again. So is Ottoland and LimeLackey. Turns out the virtual directory settings were not configured properly to match the new server install. Oops, my bad. The weather in NY is a bit gloomy, but it is...
