What Is This Crapnbsp I Noticed That My Tabs In Windows Messenger 47 Disappeared Recentlywhen I Renabled Them

What is this crap?  I noticed that my tabs in Windows Messenger 4.7 disappeared recently...when I renabled them I got this:

"We are removing all tabs except the Alerts tab from Windows Messenger.
However, MSN Messenger 5.0 continues to provide tabs, including a link to this content.
Go to the Messenger Web site to install the latest version of MSN Messenger.We apologize for any inconvenience."

It's this kind of cheese that is turning me off to the whole MSN brand.  You'd expect this lameness from AOL, but what's the deal?  If they are discontinuing WIndows Messenger and forcing us to move to MSN Messenger then just TELL us.  (And make the install easy without having the two IM clients fight!)

Merry freakin' Christmas, my computer is slowly turning against me.

My wife and I are going to Vegas for the holidays so I will see you all when I get back! If I don't blog much, it's because I hit on a hard 17 at blackjack and am too depressed to come to the computer.

Cookie Viewing Ive Been Sort Of Vaguely Looking For A Coo

Cookie Viewing. I've been sort of vaguely looking for a cookie management application for Internet Explorer for a while. I've tried out a couple, and been generally unimpressed with their speed or features. However, I've finally found one that seems worth keeping: IECookiesView.

Snazzy!  This will be a good companion to IEHTTPHeaders!

Taken. So i have a Tivo full of Taken episodes, the trailers looked promising, but i just can't get into it

You're preaching to the choir, Simon.  I've got my ReplayTV full of Taken, and I even used "High Quality Mode."  I can't bring myself to delete them, but I feel like I was taken by the Spielberg name and nothing else.  Hm...I've also considering ReplayTV-ing all 24 episodes of 24 and watching them back to back to back...maybe that will pull me out of my recent disillusionment over the quality of TV lately.

Seems

Seems like everyone is in the middle of Martin Fowler's Patterns of Enterprise Application Architecture.  Of course, that's expected, both when Martin has something to say, but also when any new Patterns book is written. 

At my company, we've even started a weekly lunch study group to discuss the book, and also to introduce Patterns to the uninitiated.  Seems that the concept of design patterns dcoveron't always enter the mind of the average programmer when they think of good design and opportunity for reuse.  Fortunately there are lots of resources for the beginner.  My favorite is the Portland Pattern Repository.
