I’m not sure exactly why, but I found this morbidly amusing…
Contest: How Can This Brand Be Better?
Help Fast Company reinvent these successful — and struggling — brands.
It’s an interesting contest, Microsoft and McDonalds are among the companies… It will be interesting to see the results! I’m not sure what I’d do with the prize (a three-hour branding consultation with Karen Post, author of Brain Tattoos: Creating Unique Brands That Stick in Your Customers’ Minds , and a free, signed copy of the book.) but the contest looks like fun just the same.
My aggregator (BlogLines.com) just spit out an interesting error:
These guys evidently have a sense of humor. Kudos on that, and on the fact that every time I’ve emailed on tech-support-like issues (back when I was hosting my Blog on BlogLines) I would get a response in a couple of hours, and a resolution in less than a day (happened twice). Pretty awesome customer service for a free site.
Bink.nu: “Virtual Server is now RTM”
In an SP2-like on-again-off-again fashion, Virtual Server 2005 has finally been RTM’d. I’ve used the release candidate to do some network modeling, and aside from some DHCP hiccups that seemed to resolve after a restart, it works great! I can’t wait to try the released version!
Note for the Virtual Server team: The Visual Studio already has dibs on the “VS” label. The VS2005 tag on the RC zip confused me several time over.
The web-page is still tagged “Beta” but it appears to work great! I used it all day yesterday (8/5/2004) without any problems…
I just finished porting all of my blog content over to Blogger. Blobservations is now hosted (here) at: blobservations.net. Feel free to email feedback on the site layout, or post coments under the “Rehosted” post on blobservations.net!
