Lookout and Cω

Cool thing about blogs – sometimes I learn about stuff happening inside the big house from outside in blogs. Case in point – Scottpointed out to the Lookout download. I also found out about the COmega site from Don (though honestly, I knew about that one before. That is before it changed names.)

Update: Lookout’s download site changed, back to a page on http://lookoutsoft.com instead of a page on http://download.microsoft.com. Strange, but true.

That’s A Lot of Space

John was just in here admiring my Nomad Zen Xtra. I’ve got nearly 500 albums loaded, over 6000 songs, and I’ve only filled it half way. On my recent trip to Atlanta, I realized I regularly travel with 220 GB of storage. 60GB internal laptop drive, 60GB multibay drive, 60GB Iomega external portable USB drive and the 40GB Nomad Zen. I can even get really obscene and make it a round 300GB, with my new Argosy drive enclosure (thanks to Peter for recommending Argosy) and extra 80GB drive.

Is This Thing On?

I’m behind on blogging. Not just writing, I’m behind on reading blogs as well. I hit 1000 unread posts today, and scrapped them all. I can offer up excuses like I was on the road most of July so far, my son hasn’t been feeling well, the start of the fiscal year is always busy (all true – I had to get up and soothe Patrick back to sleep after he woke up coughing as I wrote this post) but there’s no real point in making excuses. I started an outlook task list of “Shit to Blog” back at TechEd, and so far I’ve only removed two items from the list. Part of the reason for that is that I’ve been reading Software Factories which isn’t generally available, so I’m holding off on blogging my thoughts until the book ships. Next week, I’m off for New Zealand and Australia for TechEd, which is going to be awesome but probably mean still less blogging.
