Oh Really? Vista?

Microsoft did a “blind taste test” with a group that thought they were looking at the NEXT version of Windows – code-name Mojave.

Some of the clips showing the reaction of people that had preconceptions about Vista are pretty classic.

First, the “Oh Really?” group:

Then the main site:

I like Vista myself, even though I am now on a Mac every day – I run Vista on it in VMware Fusion.

Nicely done, Microsoft (could have been done in Silverlight instead of Flash – perhaps after the Olympics drive more Silverlight adoption, ok?)

Disclosure Policy

I have added a disclosure policy page.

Read it and enjoy the goodness πŸ™‚

Just Another Lazy Sunday


DSC00068Yoshi and I didn’t do much today – we pretty much just laid around and chilled out. 

Yoshi got into his favorite chair and got his pillow set up just right.  And slept – for most of the day.

I didn’t sleep, but I didn’t do much work either – yesterday was spent mowing the front yard and doing other household chores.

Too bad there isn’t any NFL Football on TV yet – that would have made this a perfect Sunday πŸ™‚

The Best Mac Blogging Tool

mac_wlw I finally found a great blogging tool for my new MacBook Pro – Windows Live Writer!

By using VMware Fusion in Unity mode I can run WLW on my Mac just like it runs on Windows.  Amazing.  And it makes me Sooooooo  Happy! πŸ™‚

An Interesting Lunch – (I Bet This Doesn’t Happen to a Lot of People)

I went with a peer to lunch today along the San Antonio River Walk.Β  I showed him an “unknown” deck on the river that we could sit at, eat our lunches, and talk.Β  Nobody knew about this deck πŸ™‚Β Β  Except the guy that showed me, and the guys that showed him (of course!)

As we were finishing our food the founders of the company I now work for walk down the stairs.

Not so secluded, I guess!

Anyway, as they joined us one of them asked me to tell him the story about a gunfight I had on a motorcycle.

I didn’t pause to think before I replied, “Which one”?

Probably not something you want to be known for –Β  having more than one “gunfight” on a motorcycle πŸ™‚

I can already tell that this story won’t leave me alone.Β  Two people have mentioned it since lunch.Β  Neither of them were AT lunch.

Be very careful what you blog about πŸ™‚
