I have not written in my WordPress ac…

I have not written in my WordPress account in so long. One reason is that I dislike having so many accounts that I have to sign into. Tonight I realized that I can do it all within my GOOGLE account using GoogleDocs. So this post is to see if what I write will get published to my WordPress account. I have a few things that I would like to write about, so please come back to read in the near future.

  • How to load Ubuntu on an External Hard Drive without setting a Dual boot on your current Laptop.
  • Tips for obtaining you MCP, MCTS and MCPD.
  • Tips and tricks that I have learned.
  • News that rocks!

I have been very busy lately, but have a lot that I want to share, so maybe I can share some insightful thoughts. Have a Merry Christmas everyone.

Tour San Francisco from Your Computer

So I thought that Keyhole (now: Google Earth) was one of the most addicting pieces of software that ever was released. Well now I am addicted to another one of Google’s newest products called “Street View” that is integrated into Google Maps. Google currently allows you to view the following cities with Street View:

San Francisco seems to have some of the better quality imagery compared to Miami. Here is a picture of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. This stuff is so cool. I could take all my time up this evening telling you about all the things I love about this, but then I would take time away from you playing with it like I did. Watch out … time goes by really fast browsing the city. Click the image below to go try it out in San Francisco.

Let me know if you find anything really neat. Hope you enjoy.

Joost Expands It’s Invites


Joost is expanding it’s invites by allowing 10,000 of the first ArsTechnica.com readers to receive a free invite. I am unsure of how many invites are out there, but I know that I have some that I can give out. I enjoy streaming video over the internet. I like to watch my Fox & Friends in the morning. I currently use TVU Networks and am fairly happy with the quality it provides. I heard of Joost and said “I’ve got to get it”. So I received an invite from the Joost team a few months back and tried out the p2p program.

To be honest, I was very dissatisfied with version 0.9.1. I thought that the program was really slow on my computer. I am using a DELL XPS M140, 1.73GHz with a GIG of DDR RAM on a Windows XP Media Center OS. I have a 1.5MB cable connection through Charter Communications, and have had no bandwidth issues.

I think I need to give Joost a fair try again. I understand that they have contracted with new companies to bring even more content to the users. I really wish they could get Fox News. Take a look at what channels they currently offer. Let me know if you would like to try out the service, and I will send as many invites out as I can. First come first serve
