Travelling again, and there's an important reason why I'm blogging this morning

By Andrew Pollack on 11/07/2008 at 10:06 AM EST

...Well, there are two reasons I guess. The first is to put a bit of warning out there for those of you who haven't yet gotten back to me about the spots you want on the CULT shirts for Lotusphere 2009. We are probably going to do less shirts overall this year, but they're going to be good fun. We're overdue posting the Top 10 list, but that will happen within days. If you haven't contacted me yet, but plan to sponsor -- your time is running out.

I'm headed to Phoenix now with my oldest daughter. She's 15 now, and one of the cool things I get to do this weekend is to introduce her to one of my oldest friends. Jenny and I have been friends since about 15 years old. Introducing her to my 15 year old daughter is really a kick. Even more so, because Ari is just the kind of person who would have been part of our group in school. She's a reflection of how we were at that age -- only much more together than we were. How cool is that?

Of course, the other reason to squeeze this blog in, is because Ed is two posts ahead of me on Planet Lotus. I don't usually care, but my ranting this past week have put me in a higher than usual spot, and I figured there'd be no real harm in just being a blatant ASW just this once as a bit of a tease. Every once in a while this just strikes me as funny. I guess it doesn't matter to me all the much that most of you probably don't agree. Oh, and yes, I realize that if Ed posts absolutely anything withe the words Notes, Domino, Blackberry, or Lotusphere in it that my little fun will come to a very fast end as all six of my readers (well, 5, because one of the six is my mother) are also going to read anything he posts along with the 20,000 others of you out there.

Have a good day, and think of me as I fly the airline I hate the most through the city I hate flying through more than any other just to go see some family for a couple of days.

  1. 01/26/2023Better Running VirtualBox or VMWARE Virtual Machines on Windows 10+ Forgive me, Reader, for I have sinned. I has been nearly 3 years since my last blog entry. The truth is, I haven't had much to say that was worthy of more than a basic social media post -- until today. For my current work, I was assigned a new laptop. It's a real powerhouse machine with 14 processor cores and 64 gigs of ram. It should be perfect for running my development environment in a virtual machine, but it wasn't. VirtualBox was barely starting, and no matter how many features I turned off, it could ......

Certainly it should have been addressed in the Trump, Obama, Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan administrations -- all of which were well aware of the implications of a pandemic. I want a military prepared to help us, not just hurt other people. As an American I expect that with the ridiculous funding of our military might, we are prepared for damn near everything. Not just killing people and breaking things, but ......

This is not quite a scam because it's technically legal, but it's run very much like a scam. This company works with a few "clients" that have vast repositories of copyrighted images. The trolls do a reverse web search on those images looking for hits. When they find one on a site that looks like someone they can scare, they work it like ......
