RC1 Found, Will Travel

Ignore the cheesy title, or don’t.  I thought it was pretty good, anyways, right after this I am going to start downloading the Windows Vista RC1 ISO, and I will install it to a spare computer which I had Linux on.  Unfortunately, I haven’t been using Linux much and it’s a quick install so I’m going to write over it.  I’ve been doing so PHP Programming and have a new idea for a site I have been working on.  I want to work out the basic features first, before adding a pretty original idea to the Internet.  Well, that’s all folks!

Cheers,

P.S.:  I put this under technology, because Release Candidate 1 is a new development.

Got Google?

Microsoft has a problem, Google. What’s going wrong? Microsoft is losing its grip on things. It tries to stay up-to-date, and it might in terms of technology, but not in turns of popularity. Coders are going towards open source, and the only ones that are staying offline are those hard-core Microsoft junkies. Microsoft is being way too overprotective. Back in the old days, in the generation off early home computing when Apple and Microsoft were making their own entrances, Apple made a giant mistake. They didn’t educate people on how to make software for their system, and were overprotective of their development kits (or making documents and spreading SDKs). They left it up too the coders to figure it out. Microsoft was very unprotective (by old computing standards), and shared how to make programs. Now though, you can’t just share how to make programs. You need to to do a Google, be open source, free, reliable, and techie friendly, plus you can’t just look like another frowned upon Yahoo!. You have to appeal to the coders, not the home users. Why? The coders are the people who will make changes and strives that end up driving home users in the good directions. So you have to beef things up for the coders, or else you’ll end up losing. Losing in this battle of the computer companies Google will win, and Microsoft annd other big time companies need to shape up- or ship out.

In other news, I decided not to use the MORE tag. A lot of RSS Readers don’t know the full article isn’t always in what they got. Sometimes the more tag won’t show. People in their browsers even miss it sometimes, besides I know how much I love being able to read in my RSS reader and don’t always like having to expand the article. So, I’m being nice (not to mention going with my own preference). Another complaint is this, it’s horribly annoying and its happened twice. I hit
