Journey Updates

My studies of John Reese’s materials are going well.  I also picked up a copy of NicheBlueprint and have been reviewing that material as well.  All in all, I’d say I’m definitely getting “smarter.”

The biggest update to this journey though is that I will be unvailing a new web site soon.  I don’t want to give too much away just yet, so I’ll just leave you with this teaser.  If you’re an avid reader (like I am), you’re probably going to be a big fan of my upcoming product and service.

*puzzled look* Palin?

Now, I don't think that an "experienced resume" (in the world of politics) is all it's cracked up to be.  In fact, I'd rather all politicians not be experienced because a politician is not exactly something that the word "experience" makes me think... Woohoo! 

After all, an experienced politician just makes you an experienced crook -- at least in my eyes and in the eyes of millions of others like me.

All of that aside, when your biggest campaign strategy up to this point in time has been knocking the lack of experience of your political opponent, I must say -- it sends a rather strange message to pick a running mate with even less experience than the foe you've been bashing.  Whaaaaat?  I guess they're (the McCain camp) going to have to find a new facet of Obama's resume to focus on.  *shrugs*  Or maybe not, the world of politics rarely makes sense anyway.

Beautiful Girl Buys JaceMan Ice Cream

So, I go to Doozle's Frozen Custard last night feeling kind of down and lonely.  I figured a little frozen chocolate could cheer me up; after all, it generally does.  Little did I know that the custard would play second fiddle to a pretty girl offering to buy me "ice cream."

I'm standing in line behind this lady and her daughter.  The little girl was, I'm guessing, eight or nine years of age.  When she saw me, I smiled at her and said, "Hi."  She just smiled back and waved before pulling on her mommy's hand.  She motioned for her mother to bend down and I heard her "whisper" into her Mommy's ear, "He's cute."  I smiled a blushing and embarrassed smile, but then to my surprise after only whispering to her mother, she actually looked at me and said, "You're cute!"

I laughed softly.  Then she looked at her Mom and said, "Mommy, can I buy his ice cream?"  My soft chuckle turned into a full-on laugh fest that was matched only in intensity by the laughter and embarrassment of her Mother.  She apologized on behalf of her daughter, but I told her not to worry about it.  After all, it wasn't everyday that a pretty girl offered to buy ME ice cream.

Well, as they made their way to the window, the little girl gave the attendant her order.  When she was done she said, "and whatever he wants!" and pointed to me.  Again embarrassed, laughter returned yet again.  After receiving my chocolate cone I sat down and ate with my new "girlfriend."

Aren't kids great!  And dang it, why don't I have any?!?!?!?!?!


New Podcast -- JaceMan Speaks!

I am now podcasting.  The first half hour show (talk radio style) was posted this evening.  It should be added to itunes soon for subscription.  Alternately, you may always listen to the posts at JaceManSpeaks.com or download them as well.

Ok, it's been a long day after work today.  I'm venturing off to bed now!

The American People Have Gone Mad

I've been debating with (and listening to) liberals a lot lately, but then I always do!  The arguments I've been hearing from them as of late have me scratching my head more than normal though.  I mean the logic they give to support their stances have a tendency to contradict what it is that they profess to actually crave.  Let me give you a brief illustration that came up in chat this morning, with a liberal "friend" of mine, so that you can understand what it is that I'm talking about.

MS TechNet Flash Regarding Vista

This morning, I found the following message, from Microsoft, in my email. Please read it and then see the cut below for my comments.
Microsoft TechNet Flash: Why should you upgrade to Windows Vista
Volume 10, Issue 11a: June 4, 2008
Note from the Editor
Welcome to the special bonus edition of TechNet Flash featuring content specifically selected to inform and ease your Windows Vista deployment.

When we released Windows Vista, security was clearly a top priority. However, one of the implications of the increased focus on security was that compatibility with Windows Vista was not where we wanted it to be at launch. Over the past eighteen months, Microsoft and our partners have made tremendous progress in compatibility, performance, and battery life. Here are updates on a few key facts:
Windows Vista now supports more than 77,000 printers, cameras, speakers and other devices.
More than 2,700 software programs are “Certified for” or “Works with” Windows Vista-logoed; 97 of the top 100 consumer applications are compatible.
62% of small businesses said Windows Vista saves them time, and 70% said it makes them more productive, according to an independent survey.
More than 140 million copies of Windows Vista have been sold, making it the fastest selling operating system in Microsoft history. Even Macs run it.
71 percent of Windows Vista customers like it better than their last operating system.
People familiar with Windows Vista are two to three times more likely to have a favorable impression of it.
If you haven’t had a chance to begin your formal assessment of Windows Vista, we encourage you to start soon. Understanding Windows Vista as a "managed node" is different from understanding it as an end user. To that end, we’ve compiled below new content around Service Pack 1 improvements, security enhancements, usability, and deployment.

If you’re still on the fence with regard to deploying Windows Vista, read Technical Fellow Mark Russinovich’s Springboard article where he discusses why now may be a good time to take another look at Windows Vista. Also see Mark and a panel of experts discuss adopting Windows Vista into a desktop infrastructure. The panel features subject-matter experts and IT pros from around the world that have tackled Windows Vista deployment.

Thanks for reading,

Mitch Irsfeld Editor, TechNet Flash

Snakes on a "Plane" Basement Step

Mowing the front yard yesterday, I knew I had to take care of the backyard today. Forcing my lazy butt down to the basement to fetch the mower a little more than an hour ago, I almost stepped on this little guy.

Even if it is just a common garter snake, it does have a tendency to freak a person out when you almost step on one just a few stairs down into the basement.  I captured the little rascal and made him a deal.  I'll release you, let you live, and not run over you with the mower if you promise to stay out of my house.  He seemed to agree, so that's what we did.
