Leo Laporte has 4711 podcasts on Twit.TV now.  Being a subscriber to several already (This Week in Tech, Windows Weekly, Security Now and Munchcast) I don’t often go back to the main web page to see what’s going on, because I’m reading all the updates through my RSS feeds. I need to check out some of the others and see if I want to listen. I don’t know that I want a daily show like Daily Giz Wiz, because of the possibility of getting behind really easily. But who knows. I would never have tried Munchcast if it wasn’t be recommendation

My friend Jason finally got himself a Wii. They’ve been in short demand. He figures it’s been in use 18 hours a day at his house. His daughter plays it while he is at work, then he plays it when he gets home, then his wife plays it when she gets home!

Well, I’m finally going to do it. What you ask? I’m going to organize a purchase of original formula Dr. Pepper from Old Doc’s Soda Shop in Dublin, Texas.

It’s the Summer Solstice today.. Ok, that’s misleading.. it’s only the summer solstice in the Northern Hemisphere… which it’s most likely where you’re reading this from…So I guess I’d be more technically correct to wish you a happy June Solstice, or more generically a Happy Solstice!

As long as we’re mocking end users in our office [info]thomas-delbroc, I felt it due time to post about an extraordinary adventure with a printer I had yesterday. A particular user, who’s been no end of trouble the last for days, called to tell me that her printer was sending out blank pages. She had gotten ‘some’ error message about the margins, but printed anyway. Now, the printer wouldn’t stop, even turning it off and back on, and she couldn’t delete the job from the printer.

Google Maps Rox

We’ve been using Google Maps for years now, ever since it was first released. I find the Ajax interface to be very easy to navigate, and I’m happy with the results. One of the great things about Google is that they are always adding new features. The problem is, that sometimes these new features slip in and as a regular user you have no idea. Granted, their new Street View feature (see real images and navigate 360 view at the street level) is getting a lot of news in the past weeks because of privacy issues. However, there are plenty of other features available, and I recently discovered two I didn’t previously know about.

This is a going to be both a normal post and a test. As for test, I am looking at a new blog writing tool from Microsoft called ‘Windows Live Writer’. It’s currently in beta, but is part of Microsoft’s push for new web based services. If you aren’t using a blog writer to post to your blog and are still struggling with editing/writing posts directly through your blog interface, you should look into a dedicated application.
