Worldwide Telescope Announced
So, now we officially know What brought Scoble to tears a few weeks ago. As has been speculated it is the Worldwide Telescope which will revolutionize the way we look at the universe. I am really looking forward to playing with this, it looks gorgeous. Congratulations to everyone who is involved. BTW, I have to second Robert on his review of Building 99. It really is a great building with lots of glass and open workspaces. It is a bit weird to have the meeting rooms so exposed but I think it works ......

What's Wrong With Gmail?
It's been a long time since I last posted, I have been really bad lately I know. Work, life, changes on the horizon. You know how it is... Every once in a while for the past two years I have been getting comments about Gmail problems which I wrote about in the past. However, in the past few weeks I have been getting hammered with comments and mail concerning Gmail. It seems like people are having connectivity problems that last for days(!) and it's not only affecting overseas users but lots of people ......

Windows Home Server
I was pleasantly surprised to hear about the Windows Home Server today On10 and on Charlie Kindel's blog as well. This is a great idea, an easy way to unify and administer all the resources of a multi PC home. The ease of backup, storage "cloud" and access over the net will be the big selling points (for me at least). So it looks like Rick Hallihan was on to something when he wrote about a "Windows Home Server" back in 2005. It's also interesting to look at Charlie's post at that time. Was Charlie ......

Windows Defender Service Failing
For the past few days we've been getting the following error on our machines at home: Application failed to initialize: 0x800106ba. A problem caused Windows Defender Service to stop.

It turns out that Windows Defender is out of Beta and a new version is available. Simply follow the instructions on Paul's post ......
