Windows2000 – the star of the show. A glitch at the start of the screening took the projection PC through a boot sequence.

The irresistible rise of PINK wine continues a-pace. The Grande Dame of PINK, Mateus, now offers 3 different shades of the stuff and every brand and his dog seem to have gone PINK.

Meanwhile the clever boys at Stormhoek, led by the redoubtable Macleod-borg are pushing PINK wine as a classy way to dress – spotted in Edinburgh, Couture on an A-board.

Mini Cray…

I grew up with Cray in my mind as the gold standard of Computers That Go Fast – I know it’s different nowadays.

Looking around the room here, I can’t imaging many of the guys not wanting a rig like Scott Hanselman’s. Follow the links to the articles (part 1, part 2, part 3) on it’s build – this thing should have go-faster stripes.

Imaging not having to wait for your computer to do stuff.

Imagine not having Vista eating 100% of your (single Pentium M 1.6Ghz) processor after coming off standby.

I can only imagine…

Here’s a brilliant insight – stop e-voting until you’ve worked out how you want to modernise elections.

After the Holyrood election debacle in Scotland we have learned that even when still marking paper, we can’t do it properly when there is an electronic component.

It is taking the US of A years of painful debate and dubious results in some elections to even get around to letting people test the electronic systems (which they have been using for years). What happens there gets here eventually.

This paper (about hacking voting systems) from the office of the Secretary of State for California says in the summary – “The red teams demonstrated that, under these conditions, the technology and security of all three systems could be compromised.”.

Rebecca Mercuri has lots of good links.
