I’ve been really
busy staring at a monitor all week. Many websites need to be changed and this
has been the best time to do it. I never use an overhead light in my office.
I have a corner office in an old Sergeant’s quarters, with two windows and a
ceiling fan. I have a comfortable/cool (73 degrees) working environment. My
desk is in a corner facing a window with the other one to my left shoulder.
With a 19" monitor this is ideal for me. I don’t get eye strain, unless
I don’t take a break every 3 hours. Today is a little different, it’s getting
dark and the hall light is on. I try to work without an overhead light, they
wind up bothering my eyes more than without light. FYI My ViewSonic G790 works
off an A/B box to connect it to my PC and to the Mac.
Haven’t had time
to play around with the boxes at home, but with the 3 day holiday ahead, I can
spend some time futzing around. Niki’s PC will be complete this weekend. I promise.

I’ve been reading
about the guy who cost Emulex a 62% decline in their stock price. I’m really

believe they will get caught…they need to watch "Law & Order"
or talk to some detectives. They can tie you to a crime from a damn hair fiber.
They knew this guy was in Las Vegas resort when he emailed his press release.
The only stock market I play, is the fantasy one on Yahoo.
I have started researching more about starting a DotCom. The most interesting
place is DotcomFailures. As much
as I would like to have a DC, I think the only way to go is with a brick &
mortar type establishment. I have about 3 ideas that would be great, but the
Venture Capitalist are getting more resistant to new DC investments. Portals
are starting to be old-hat, and the real boom will be in Knowledge management.
Instead of ecommerce, the new buzzword will be kcommerce, the business of selling
knowledge to corporations. Oracle is a company that can only advance. Some of
the smaller companies will be bought out by M$ and with their new .com push,
I am starting to believe this is true. Look for a web job now. Everything is
being developed with databases in min
