Invest in America's future - Education

The US lags the rest of the world in educating scientists, engineers, mathematicians, computer experts, etc.  The easiest way to resolve this is to make tuition free who goes into one of the math, engineering or science disciplines.  What about the psych and English lit majors?  What about them?  We have plenty of those.  If we're going to get our country going in this economy then we need to educate the people in the fields that will get our economy on the right track.

Sametime wouldn't start for me

I'm recovering from my hard drive failures.  Sametime wouldn't start today.  The splash screen came up and that was it.  I found the following information:

Sametime shows the splash screen but does not start

Delete the file: C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\IBM\RCP\Sametime\.metadata\plugins\\shelfmemento.xml and then start Sametime again.

Which solved my problem!

I don't always get a title line when I go to post new posts to this blog. Weird.

If you have trouble getting ATT Network Client to connect into your corporate network and you use a cellular GSM ATT pcmcia card to connect to the network DISABLE optimization. I was not able to log in recently with a new hard disk build and turns out the new version of the ATT communications manager software optimization is somehow interfering with the VPN login.
