Here is an interesting site from Microsoft (apparently from\geared to only its European sites) that showcases a bunch of recorded seminars on differing technologies. I highly recommend Project WSYP for a good laugh . . .

Okay Microsoft, Where is Your Virtual Player?
VMWare just announced the VMWare Player which allows you to distribute virtual machines to users that aren't running VMWare. Similar in the way Office Application viewers work for people that don't run Word or Excel but need to view the data these files contain. While I am sure we could just make a PDF of a virtual machine — having a utility like this for Microsoft virtual machines would sure come in handy for demo and development purposes ......

Microsoft Anti-Phishing Toolbar Add-In
Microsoft has released an add-in for the MSN tool bar called the Microsoft® Phishing Filter Add-in for MSN® Search Tool bar (Beta). You need to have Windows XP SP2 and the latest version of the MSN Tool bar. You receive a visual notification when you browse to what is suspected of being a phishing website.

Why Does FeedDemon Dupe Every Posting?
I am curious Jeff, and this is by no means a slam as I love (and I love the free part too)! If I subscribe to an individual poster’s blog (like yours or mine) FeedDemon dupes every post. If I subscribe to the aggregate feed, then this doesn't happen . . . I understand posts get duped if they are re-posted; but this happens to every post. And I know, at least I am not re-posting all my posts . . . any ideas? And again, the site rocks ......

Get TV From Your TiVo to Your Video iPod
Pure sweetness — if you own a series 2 TiVo, the below procedure allows you to use the “video to go” function to get shows on to your Video iPod. There are a few steps and 2 different programs you have to get the video converted through, but once mastered it is easily scriptable\batchable. Let the goodness begin. I am going to see if I can get the USC vs. Notre Dame game from this weekend on the iPod to watch . . . How-To: Get TV shows off of your TiVo and onto your iPod (with video) ......

Engadget Has Some Good Pics of the New Video iPod
Unpacking the iPod (with video) Believe it or not, no one at Engadget actually has an iPod (at the time of this writing), so we had to leave it to our pal Garrett M. to pick one up on behalf of, well, his damn self. So check out the iPod’s unboxing if you’re too broke, too cheap, too not ready yet, or too not-down-with-iPods to buy one for your damn self. Tons more pics after the break! Say, is that an… Olympus C765UZ? Yeah, we’re that good. What EXIF data? Fare thee well, ......

Physical Security
I went to a TechNet briefing today on SQL Server 2005 by Matthew Hester. Matt was an excellent speaker and showed us some really great stuff that is coming in SQL Server 2005. Who knew SQL Servers were pessimistic and optimistic? Jaded perhaps, but . . . Anyway, he did a great little slide on physical security which he highlighted with video #5 from Trunk Monkey. I had never heard of them before this so I had to roll on out to the site and check it out. Videos 4 and 5 had me rolling on the ground. ......

Application Layer Firewall protection for Exchange Server 2003 with ISA Server 2004
Here is a cool little gem from the Microsoft website on the application layer protection that ISA Sever does so well. Download it here.

The purpose of this document is to detail how to more effectively use the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) and Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) filtering capabilities ......
