Again, I scored the dubious honour of crashing a test "phone" into a state of blistering stupor (and so far removing the battery doesn't help). It's like the Midas touch in reverse - we'll see if a night without battery sorts it out.
Withrawal symptoms related to the end of my management course include, at this point:
- Using Excel to draft mini-business cases of network equipment expansion instead of doing the right thing and counting STM-1 interfaces.
- PowerPointing the hell out of any conversation lasting more than 15 minutes.
- Looking for a balance sheet inside vendor proposals.
- Being totally immune to the number of zeros on any monetary value.
Yeah, I miss the people too. Would have started by mentioning that if it wasn't so damn obvious. On with the news, then:
- HP churns out more iPAQs. Nothing special, other than VGA is the new norm, nearly 15 years after it debuted in PCs.
- Fedora Core Test 3 is out. As if the dust had settled around Test 2 yet... (sigh)
- OpenVMS lives on. And on. And on...
- Office 2004 Professional for Mac OS X was delayed. Damn. I was counting on it...
- Blackberry devices to get Bluetooth. About time, too. I just hope it does OBEX as well.
- We finally get Wi-Fi for Palms. One specific model. One specific card. Yay.
- Last but not least, PHP 5 is officially out - and someone coded an actual compiler, which is sure to cause a bit of a stir. Expect the 4.x -5.x transition pains to begin real soon now.
