Hardware for Windows “Longhorn”

Post by Mark

At lunch, a friend was telling me and Tivo-Guy about how the majority of current Windows systems, new and old are not going to be compatible with Windows Longhorn. He gave me a link with the the Graphics Hardware requirements as an example to check out since Longhorn also needs certain types of VGA cards to run. Here is the link but I warn you its geek zone.

How do you ask for a raise?

Post by Mark

I am thinking of asking management for a raise since recently my responsibilities and workload have increased considerably but I don’t know how to. There is no time that seems like a right time and even if the right time came along I am not sure how I would start the conversation. Any tips?

Got Spam?

Post by Mark

I have a couple of email accounts which I check on my Mac using Mail.app. The problem is like many I get a lof of spam through out the day. I already trained Mail.app to spot junk emails but its not perfect and so I decided to find a better solution. A while back I found a software called JunkMatcher. JunkMatcher is a software that integrates with Mail.app. It gives you a lot more junk mail options and it already comes built-in with a whole set of rules. With my upgrade to Tiger, JunkMatcher stopped working but recently they updated the software and now its Tiger compatible. So download it and try it, you won’t even notice its there. [Link]

Former Nazi designer sues VW over logo

Post by Mark

A former Nazi graphic designer is suing Volkswagen, seeking credit for helping to design their famous logo. Nikolai Borg, 86, who now lives in Austria, says he has paperwork that can prove his involvement in the development of the VW logo 65 years ago. He doesn’t want any cash, says his lawyer—he just wants to live to see his work acknowledged. Volkswagen denies that Borg was involved in the design. The legal case begins next week in a Vienna court. [Link]
