Fantastic...for the 4 of you who are reading this initially false-started blog, you'll notice that it's only taken me from May to now to figure out the firewall issues that were preventing the updating of these pages.  So, that being said, expect to see more posts more often.  Thanks for your support.

Why NET Will Conquer The World NET Clearly Bears A Strong Resembl

Why .NET will conquer the world. .NET clearly bears a strong resemblance to Java. It offers many of the same features, while adding interesting additions of its own (code metadata, versioned assemblies, etc). Microsoft, however, is better positioned to create a cross-market software unification framework than Sun Microsystems ever was (or is). [sellsbrothers.com: Windows Developer News]

Ive Been Using The GlucoWatch For A Week Nownbsp A Hrefhttpradioweblogscom0106747imagesGlucoWatchTrend1JP

I've been using the GlucoWatch for a week now. 

I've received some very good information from the GlucoWatch, but not without some pain. You perform some initial steps to prepare the inside of your forearm for the watch. You alcohol swab your arm, put the GlucoWatch AutoSensor on the back of the watch, and stick the whole assembly to your arm. There is a 3 hour "warm up period" during which you get no feedback. There is a slight tingly feeling while the watch is collecting Glucose. The slight voltage pulls the Glucose out of your arm and into the Collector pads. I find this tingly feeling a bit uncomfortable. According to support people at Cygnus (the GlucoWatch company) this is normal, and depends on how fair skinned and sensitive your skin is. I'll probably only use the GlucoWatch once a week because I find this tingling uncomfortable enough to deter me from using it daily. Also, after you wear the watch for the full 12 hours (it shuts off after 12 hours) you're (At least, I am) left with two red rashy marks that look like mosquito bites. These took a full week to fade, and are still slighly visible. I'm using Cortosone (sp?) to treat the rash.

OverheardHeres An Interesting Fact That You May Not Have Realized Today Was The Longest Dullest Day

Overheard
"Here's an interesting fact that you may not have realized: today was the longest, dullest day in the history of mankind. Early reports have today's 8:30-5:00 time period lasting no fewer than 34.5 hours, breaking the previous record of 33.7 set sometime during my junior high school years.

During the day not a single interesting thing was heard, seen, or done, and it is believed that for a brief period all color was drained from the Earth, replaced by varying shades of gray. Also a first: at around 3:30, during a brief conversation about international shipping requirements and case quantities, time actually stopped and then went backwards, a process only halted when I started slapping myself in the face."
