Keeping old email

Larry Medina believes that keeping too much email too long is a bad thing,
presumably according to general principles of records management. I think
things may have changed, however, for a two-word reason: Text mining.

Blogshares: An OLTP horror show

When an OLTP-oriented web site doesn't work, it generally goes away; there's not
a lot of point in staying online if you can't keep track of products, money,
whatever. So it's hard to find examples of really bad OLTP issues to rubberneck
at.

Flying Toasters rule

Strangely enough, I think about Flying Toasters quite frequently. In the early
days of the Internet and when Berkeley Systems re-released their screen saver
software for Mac OS after a number of year hiatus, I was there. I was one of the
beta testers.

Antispyware software cause application error on PC

Worked on a laptop today that was getting the following error on bootup:
"explorer.exe Application Error -- The instruction at "0x734305be" referenced
memory at "0x734305be". The memory could not be "written"." The apoint.exe
application, that is part of the Alps trackpoint/touchpad driver on the system,
also was failing at bootup.
