Today is the end of full support for Windows 2000, although security updates will be available for a few more years. I think there is real value to the system in this case. For under $200 dollars you get a system that receives security updates for ten years. I don't know how they make much money off that. The move to XP on the Desktop and 2003 on the server has been slow, as we are less than half done. By the time we are finished, Longhorn will be out. It never seems to end.

I've stopped listening to the radio. Podcasts are my friend now, and I don't know if I could handle my hour drive to work without them. Regular news is just too depressing. Between Tivo and Podcasts, I never watch or listen to anything that I don't want to. I can't wait until the U.S. Elections. I'll be missing all those political ads that they spend so much on.

I've been using the Creative Muvo TX FM. I like the fact that you don't need any special software to transfer files to it. The controls are nice, but the FM tuner and the microphone are not very good.

Microsoft Exchange 2003 - A complex beast. I think end users like it and administrators hate it. I haven't used the older versions, so it might be viewed as a wonderful thing by those who used previous versions. Compared to running a Unix mail server, though, it is nuts.
