How to Calibrate Touch Screens (which doesn't help me troubleshoot a failing touch screen, but is really really cool. Ooooooh.)

Random Geekery

Favorite link for today (will be gibberish for nongeeks and probably useless for most, but at the moment I'm all "wow I love you people" because I haven't yet figured out how to mentally convert CIDR addressing to decimal netmask notation... and working it out on paper is a massive PIA)

The Genesis creation story, via command line interface.

It almost makes me miss compiling Java programs via telnet at 3:00am. Almost.

Being a primary caregiver for one or more infants will ruin butterscotch pudding forever.

Congressional Food Stamp Challenge -- U.S. Members of Congress to Live on a Food Stamp Budget from May 15-21

Let's hear it for the welfare queens on the hill, trying to get PB&J through TSA checkpoints because it's all the food they've got left for the next two days. Sure, a month would be a lot more educational than a week, and a few years would provide participatory learning on the effects of chronic malnutrition, but a week is a damned good start and a whole lot more than most of those who determine social programs would do.

Note to Self

Among one's list of "things to do before mixing up a double batch of banana-nut bread batter because there are four overripe bananas on the banana hanger" would be "make sure you own loaf pans."

I am holding a signed copy of Every Sacred Thing. OMG. *runs off to hide under covers with flashlight or something*

This Wasn't Covered in the Book!

Dear Miss Manners,

I'm a little unclear on the proper etiquette for a particular situation. This morning as I was carrying my lawn & leaf bag full of household refuse to the dumpster, I met a man standing next to the same dumpster. As I smiled and wished him a good morning, he grabbed the sides of the dumpster, boosted himself up, and hopped inside. Thinking it rude to throw trash into a dumpster which is currently occupied by a person (and, as a sidenote, being impressed by his athletic ability), I asked if he'd mind if I let my bag of trash on the flat surface directly next to the dumpster. He glanced at me briefly and continued opening bags of trash. I wished him a good day and left my bag next to the dumpster, thinking fondly of my shredding machine.

I do wish this had been covered in the text, as such surprises on the test are somewhat unsettling.

Regards,
Me

[Attn: Windows Sysadmin Types] Exchange DST Update: Calendars in Public Folders

... we won't discuss how long it's taken me to get this figured out.


To update a calendar stored in public folders on Exchange:

1. At a workstation (must have Outlook installed), log on. (I just ran this under my regular not-admin username w/o probs.)
2. Install/Run tzmove.exe
3. To the right of "Data File" dropdown, click "Custom"
4. Navigate to the calendar in the stored folder
5. Run the tool.

This must be done as a separate step for each calendar in a public folder.

First person to tell me what they sell wins.

I'm sure they leverage a lot of core competencies and stuff, but what do they DO?
