Alternate Posting? Please HELP!!!!
Is anyone out there using geekswithblogs or any other .text blog where you post to it other that thru the web interface?  I have a mobile device with a browser that *does not* have JS support.  Anyone have any suggestions for an alternate page I can write and host to log in and post to my blog?  Has anyone written an email poster or any other tool?  Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks, Dan K

Hosting Suggestions?
Hello out there, I need a little help.  I have a small business and was wondering who is using what out there for web hosting.  I would need support and the more ftp access (unlimited?) the better.  Any one have any suggestions?  Horror stories?  Anything?  Thanks in advance, Dan K

Windows Mobile Development Day a HIT!
Well from being there and talking to others who attended, Thom's Mobile Dev Day in Waltham MA was a great success. Thom did a great introduction to the .net compact framework and the features and caveats of mobile dev. Next Duane gave an awesome demo of occasionally connected applications and their development. I see Duane posted his code samples on his shiny new blog. After lunch Chris Pels gave us some great insight on data storage and SQL CE. Don Sorcinelli ended the afternoon with an very interesting, ......

It's about time, a fake tablet!
I have asked a few people about this, and no one seemed to know. I was going to blog-ask it and have been avoiding it for time reasons. Thanks to Loren, now I have an answer. Thanks a lot, I have an older laptop running XP Pro and a nice input tablet I am very comfortable using for Flash animation. I have “written” notes in OneNote with it and was sorely missing the “ink” features. I asked around and no one seemed to know if loading XP Tablet on a non-tablet laptop would kill ......

Wassa matta for you?
Still running or know someone who runs an internet connected machine without anti-virus software? Enough's enough. Scott Hanselman points to two free options for anitvirus. The CA package looks like it's free for a year, while the Grisoft is forever free for the home user. It's the perfect solution for that aunt or brother in law who calls up the family network admin (YOU) every three months or so and says 'My computer's slow, and it's crashing a lot'. Get them on one of these products, turn on the ......

Sucking Chest Wound? Here's a Band-Aid.
Wow, I work in a place where the machines crash at random, I am doing VB6 and classic ASP development on a Celeron 900 with 128 MB ram. The machine crashes at random 4 to 8 times a week, the network / exchange server is down so much, (without exaggeration) the internet / network is unavailable 10 to 15 hours a week, and my emails have an average delivery rate (coming and going) of about 50%. I actually purchased, out of my own pocket, without reimbursement, a new laptop to develop on, I figure the ......
