I have long used a blackberry address (@rogers.blackberry.net) that connected to my phone directly and then forwarded email messages to the phone from the various accounts that I held.

It has been a few weeks and this contest has finally come to an end. I reached out to everyone to guess the amount in my change jar. During this process, I realized this wasn’t an easy task either.

You may be all too aware of the coming expiry of the Windows 7 Release Candidate running on your computer or you may be finished with the Windows 7 trial version that you have running on your computer.

You may have read my earlier blog about winning a Netbook. I thank everyone who entered this contest and took a shot at winning this great little pc! After looking over all of the entries – there was no correct answer! I was surprised, since I expected that someone would get this.
I’m always looking for new and interesting tools or utilities. Every day I come across a number of these useful programs and look forward to sharing them with you. In this series of blogs I’ll go over some of the best and most interesting I have found and tested – I welcome you to go […]
What every IT Guy tends to keep, however, is a cache of essential utilities that he/she use with them all the time. As you become more tuned to the kinds of utilities you use, you’ll find ways to make them more available to yourself when you are at the client (at a moments notice).
I had an idea, why not see how this would go? I’m always looking for more people to read my blog, so I thought that if I offered you the chance to win something for spreading the word – you might appreciate it. No strings attached. I pay for the Netbook and I’ll pay for the shipping. If you don’t want to help spread the word, that’s fine too – you’ll still get a shot.
