Gmail:Messages per day Defined

Short article on the limit of emails per day Google allows and what happens if you go over that limit.

-- 500 emails a day
-- Lots of emails that bounce. (Account suspension)

I think that.. if someone is sending 500 emails a day.. they need to get out more.. Hell, I only cranked out < 60 today.

Is Apple getting ready to run Windows?

Interesting rumor from Engadget says that the next version of OSX may have native support for Windows XP applications, without emulation. It appears Dvorak may have been right, in a sense.

No, Apple isn't going to Windows. That wouldn't make sense. Apple prolly just joined the development area for virtualization purposes, or perhaps emulation purposes.

According to information reaching eWEEK, Microsoft announced plans during a conference call on March 28 wherein Redmond officials reiterated the need for Web pages to be completely re-authored to avoid possible disruptions as a result of major changes to IE 7 as a result of a patent dispute.

Crappy Hardware

So. Hardware. If it's not one problem it's another, and I'll tell you what. A certain company, who makes servers, I am not mentioning any names (but I will tell you its not Sourcefire, it is a HARDWARE company), really builds crappy machines.

I'm not mentioning any names. But their logo is blue. That should narrow it down.

200+ photos of the PS3 including pics from the GDC keynote!

Tons of PS3 photos including pictures of Lair, Rainbow Six, the PS3 online interface, music store, Ratchet and Clank, etc.

Go see.

Check Point says it will look for ways to collaborate with its former acquisition target, Sourcefire.

I recently blogged that the company that I work for Sourcefire was purchased by Checkpoint Software for 225 million dollars.

Well, last week both of our companies mutually withdrew our application with CFIUS (Committee for Foreign Investment in the United States) to be aquired.

Basically, that means we're not selling the company to Checkpoint. There's only about a billion articles on the subject. So feel free to go read.

28 days...

Okay, I am not catholic, however...

I gave up Mountain Dew for Lent. Yup, just Mountain Dew. I can have any other form of caffeine, even Mellow Yellow, but I had to give up Mountain Dew. (It was basically a challenge from my wife to me :)

Began 1 March, Ash Wednesday, and goes to 15 April (the day before Easter).

Background... I drink alot of Mountain dew. Prolly upwards of 24 -48 ounces a day. (2-4 cans)..

I had alot of headaches at first. I stemmed them off by drinking Pepsi. I love Pepsi (coke is too syrupy). But as all headaches are, I got over it. Plus I like to do stupid stuff like, put my body to the test and things. (i'm stupid sometimes)

However, recently it's been harder, (I love Mountain Dew), I've taught a couple classes recently in my job, that had catered food. Refrigerators full of MD for free. Right now I am at a client site that has a refrigerator full of it, again, just for the taking.

Man this sucks. How many more days?

Apple's 60 Gig iPod at Risk?

This article says that Apple might be killing off the 60 gig iPod in favor of this new tablet iPod we keep hearing about. With the big video and such.

1) We'll see, but it's a likely conclusion
2) They may not kill it off, but rather, lower the price?

"Without a Trace" gets a hefty fine.

WSJ link right here

Federal regulators proposed a record $3.6 million fine against a single TV show, penalizing CBS and its affiliates for an episode of "Without a Trace" that suggested a teenage sexual orgy, in the first batch of indecency fines proposed in more than a year.

Funny thing is, I remember the episode, it was pretty good.. heh..

Fort Myers, Cont.

Okay.

Apparently VP Cheney messed up the whole traffic flow of Fort Myers today. (Naples too). Let's just hope he's not hunting.

I can't remember which hurricane tore through here, but there are still signs of destruction everywhere. Signs destroyed, trees leaning unnaturally at a 33 degree angle because of the wind.

I was in Orlando last year, about a month after.. whatever hurricane hit it. And it was tore up.. but here we are.. HOW many months/years after that big hurricane took out this area? Things are still in a destructive mode? Crazy.

People seem nice around here though, and I have a nice hotel, so I can't complain much, however, it was kinda cool seeing VP Cheney's Modified Air Force Cargo plane sitting over there on the tarmac, and his motorcade hauling ass through town. He is supposed to give a speech somewhere around Naples at 6:30.

P.S. Naples is in Collier County. The Home of Ray Finkle. The one and only athlete to come out of Collier county and one HELL of a model american.

fort myers florida.

okay, so I'm in fort myers florida. at the airport in my rental car, in the middle of the highway. blogging. Why? Apparently Dick Cheney is in town and they have blocked off the road while we are waiting for his convoy. I don't mind. it's actually kinda cool. I just saw it a minute ago, cop cars ambulances.. Prolly about 20 or so cars. but that's not what is funny. (first off, everyone is out in the street) but there is a lady doing yoga on the roof of her suv. that's funny. I would have took a picture...... but she got down.
