Decrease in posts
There has been in huge decrease in post for me lately. Was it blogging burn out? I don't think so. I have just been super busy with everything going on in my life. Work has taken a lot out of me lately. Meetings all day long and mostly about Sarbanes-Oxley. The rest of my time I am working on a Sarbanes-Oxley program. Things with my girlfriend have been going great, but my best friend has just broken up with his girlfriend so I have been with him for the last week. To finish it all off my mother ......

There is so little time in the day I haven't been able to update my blog. Does that make me a bad blogger? I have been M.I.A., because I have been working on the eDrawing project for my company.

The project will reduce much of the overhead of having to go get paper copies of engineering documents and hopefully increase collaboration between engineering departments.. The documents will be scanned, validated against ERP(using the eDrawing Validator), ......

We purchased a SD memory card and filled with with photos for him. The picture frame also does movies and plays MP3's. It has a few different options but we turned it ......

Add Technorati Search to your site my way
So you would like to add Technorati Search to your site, but you can't because you don't have full control over the html in your blog. Like me a good example of this would be blogs on .Text. The code given to you by Technorati is a form, which doesn't work in .Text. I really want to add Technorati Search to my blog. I used my Adding Search to my blog the MSN Search Beta way as a template. So I went from what Technorati gave me and created a Technorati Search that will work for me. Hopefully David ......

Microsoft and MSN strangeness
So I went onto the new last night and did a search. What URL did it take me to? and I asked myself why would they do that. Are they trying to keep their search engine in beta? That made no since to me, so I did some poking around. Right now and both take you to the same places and give you the same results. So no they are not trying to stay in beta. It seems like someone over at Microsoft forgot to change the ......
