I really don't understand why these spammers keep on sending SPAM mails. I'm sure the effective rate of those are a very tiny percentage. I get about 500 SPAM mail a day and those straight goes to the junk mail folder.
And just now my buddy fiqri informed me that spammers have posted some comments in my blog. These idiots are posting comments in the .NET Forum photo gallers time to time. And I delete all those the very moment I see, and now my blog. What on earth are they expecting by doing that.
Damn! spammers ... stay away from my blog.
My gadgets collection keeps on growing and the recent additions are a Portable 2.5" Hard Disk (80 Gig), a Printer (HP Biz Jet 1000), Scanner (HP), and the wireless router.
And i'm looking for a buyer for my 17" LCD Monitor, because i'm planing to get the Dell UltraSharp 24" or 32" display.
Yesterday we restarted the IT Pro User Group. First meeting was held about 4 months back, but it stopped at that because Ruwan went to Singapore and I was too busy to handle two user group meetings. Now that Padman (MVP - Exchange Server) is there to boost the IT Pro User Group.
We had a head count of 30 representing several companies and several levels varies from IT Managers, Network Admins and so on. Padman did a session on Exchange Server 2007 which I saw some cool kick a** features, best of all is the Voice Mail facility where it can connect to a PABX unit and handle Voice mails. Volunteer speaker Sandaruwan (Technical Expert from MIT) did a session on ISA Server. By looking at the feedback received during the Q & A session I assume it was pretty good. But my .NET brain couldn't digest most of it :)
During last couple of weeks *extra* activities in my schedules was down to a minimum, so there were nothing much to blog about. Instead my work schedule was tight to the neck. Well! almost strangled. Basically it was like a ton of work during day time, and some more work on top of that and when that is over for the day, some more work and so on. Anyways now things are almost back to normal.
While doing all the work ... bit by bit I'm preparing for a Crystal Reports Representation which I'm planning to do at the next User Group Meeting. I decided to do this because there is a very high demand for Crystal Reports and most of the related questions are just sitting there unanswered. Haven't used CR in a long time. So have to refresh my brain cells.
I have been using Outlook 2007 in both my machines and it was working fine. Well! not that fine. In the office machine it was working perfectly fine. But on my tablet it gives an error 50% of the times I try create a mail or open a mail by double clicking. First attempt of any of those activities works fine. Second of any of those crashes the whole thing. And this morning I got a bonus :) in both machines it gave the same error as Exsec32.dll (or something) is incompatible bla bla. After googling I found that this is due to a security update. Yeah! Right!.
So it's a totally screwed up day for me. Tons of mails are in the inbox waiting to be replied, But I'm unable to access any of those.
Fun with Outlook ... Hell! I'm just kidding, Outlook is giving me a hard time, and I'm pissed with it right at this moment.
I just finished installing Windows Vista RC 1 on my Home PC and things looks and feels great. The speed is far better than the previous builds.
ReadyBoost feature is one cool thing which will be very useful for PCs with low RAM. I wonder this ReadyBoost works the same way with the mini-SD cards. Because I have a SD/mini-SD in my Tablet PC and I can really use it, if the SD is also treated as a ReadyBoost capable thing. Well! before installing on the tablet I'll be doing a full test run on my home PC.
Still have to install all the applications. Saw in few blogs that there are some compatibility issues with some applications. Anyways I'm going to try installing all my regular applications.
Anyways, no doubt that Vista is going to rock!
