New Blog

June 6, 2008

A colleague of mine at Sogeti has started a blog and I wanted everyone to know.  His name is Neil Wood and his area of expertise is .NET development, ALM and BizTalk – among other things I’m sure.

BTW – did anyone else out there hear about the rain storm that stretched from Dallas to Minneapolis last night!?  Dumped tons of rain here in DSM.


MS Live Mesh

May 15, 2008

I was just accepted to the Live Mesh beta and I have to say that it seems pretty cool.  I have installed the Mesh client (should I call it a client?) on my laptop and have used the online “Live Desktop” on another computer and they sync quite well.

After adding a file on one, it shows up on the other within a few seconds.  One computer is on a fast wired network (using the webtop client) and the laptop is connected to the internet by a 2.5g wireless phone.

I can think of a few different scenarios in which I’ll use Mesh and I’m interested to see where Microsoft takes it.  I’m interested to hear of ways that others are using Mesh…


Minneapolis Bridge Collapse

August 2, 2007

I was shocked to see the news last night that the I35-W bridge in Minneapolis collapsed yesterday evening.  I’m in Des Moines – just 3 and a half hours south of Minneapolis and our geographic unit at Sogeti also includes the city of Minneapolis-St. Paul.

On a conference call this morning we heard that it looks like everyone from Sogeti is accounted for.  That is good.

I do think about the families where the news isn’t so good.  Some people just driving home from work or headed to the Twins baseball game didn’t come home last night.

My thoughts and prayers are with them.

Happy 4th of July
