Your Web Password Will Be Leaked

Tue, 14 Dec 2010 14:54:20 +0000

One of the big internet media companies (Gawker Media) had a their user database of usernames and passwords leaked this weekend, including one of my favorite sites  I hope none of my dear readers usernames or passwords were leaked (like mine was), but it goes as a lesson that this could happen to anyone.  The lesson to be learned is: don’t use the same password on multiple sites and when creating a password, use a strong password, containing letters, numbers, symbols, or is really long (>20 characters).  "Pass phrases" are best like "letsgetsomeicecream" or at least multiple words like … Continue reading Your Web Password Will Be Leaked

Microsoft Office for Students

Mon, 22 Nov 2010 12:03:03 +0000

Here are some ways students (college, high school, etc) can get Microsoft Office or similar apps for a deep discount.  My sister is a student and was asking how she could get discounts on Microsoft Word so here’s a quick guide. Office Professional Academic At the time I’m writing this Microsoft is offering Office 2010 Professional for $80 to students (college, high school, etc).  This is the same thing as the Pro version, but licensed only to students for academic (as opposed to commercial) use.  It includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Publisher, and Access.  If you have an email … Continue reading Microsoft Office for Students

iPhone’s Magic Little Headphones Button

Wed, 10 Nov 2010 12:52:04 +0000

Apple packs a lot of functionality into that little button on your iPhone headphones!  There are plenty of posts out that cover some of the functionality, but here’s a consolidated list. When a call is coming in (the phone is ringing) One click = answer or hang up the call Hold for 2 sec = ignore the new call (and send to voicemail) During a call with a second call coming in (call waiting) One click = hold the current call and switch to the new call Hold for 2 sec = ignore the new call (and send to voicemail) … Continue reading iPhone’s Magic Little Headphones Button

The Ever Shrinking Wallet

Tue, 26 Oct 2010 10:09:27 +0000

My wallet is small.  Friends’ wallets are getting smaller.  Years back I was using an wallet insert (pictured here); and now you can get thin wallets like this by themselves.  Wallets are shrinking themselves into oblivion. Today my wallet contains just these three things: Driver’s License Payment Card (VISA Check/Debit/ATM) My company’s product, a LifeNexus Personal Health Card My company’s goal is to be able to combine payment cards with our Personal Health Card (PHC), so that’ll reduce the number down to two.  My last six years at Microsoft, instead of the PHC I had my Microsoft ID, again just … Continue reading The Ever Shrinking Wallet

DiscountASP.NET for Outstanding Web Hosting

Tue, 18 May 2010 01:14:03 +0000

I’ve been using for the last five years for hosting my website,, and it has been as smooth, easy, and elegant as one could hope for.  The company is as good as it gets in my opinion when it comes to service, value, and their offerings.  In full disclosure, they have provided some of my hosting for free for the last few years due to community participation.  They have a real interest in supporting the ASP.NET community.  The reason I’m writing this post though is because I really believe in their product.  I also have a few paid … Continue reading DiscountASP.NET for Outstanding Web Hosting

PI in the Bible

Fri, 14 May 2010 11:50:00 +0000

Here’s an old article I put together while in college that was worth reviving… An Analysis of π in the Bible Overview Mathematics is the one truly universal language as it spans time and space.  We find in the Hebrew Bible that there is a mathematical anomaly involving PI that is remarkably simple and accurate. At 1 Kings 7:23 there is a unique spelling of an otherwise common word.  It is the word circumference, translated “line”, and is usually spelled with two Hebrew letters.  But in this case it is spelled with an extra third letter. “And he made a … Continue reading PI in the Bible

PC Pet Peeves: Kill the "Reply" Email Button

Mon, 10 May 2010 17:57:20 +0000

Death to the email "Reply" button!!  Long live "Reply All"!! One of the more frustrating behaviors I find in the online world is when people click "Reply" to an email instead of "Reply to All" (or whatever is similar on their email app).  Why clicking "Reply" is a bad habit is that usually other email addresses on the email that need to be kept in the loop are dropped. When I joined Microsoft I was in such a bad habit of clicking the Reply button that I removed it entirely from the Outlook toolbar (right-click on the toolbar, choose Customize, … Continue reading PC Pet Peeves: Kill the "Reply" Email Button
