Amazing Orkut!

Man! These orkut and google sites are so smart!! After hearing about it a lot, I thought I will create an orkut account. So I just gave the minimal info(nothing!) and logged in to my spanking new shiny(well - nothing there to shine yet) orkut page.

This is what it said:

You are connected to 64,566,907 people through 0 friends.

Just imagine how many people you will be connected to if you just add a couple of friends. Wonder how many people Kevin Bacon is connected to. Couple of galaxies probably!

Windows Vista? - Hasta la Vista, Microsoft!

Microsoft lists 100 Reasons why you'll Be Speechless if you try Windows Vista. I don't know about that. Here is my one reason why I will not try Vista. My Mac OS X/ XP/ Win2k are running just fine, thanks!

And what will it take to run Vista on my desktop with 333 MHz celeron that is still running win2k just fine. My kids play games on that and its still decent in getting my work done - browsing and doc. And I most of the time, I use that desktop only to scan stuff (the scanner has drives only for win2k!)

That too with kids playing more on dedicated gaming devices(gameboys, game cubes, Wiis, PS-x - does anyone play on the PC anymore), we need not play on PCs. And that too kids play more browser based games.

I have heard good things about the Vista UI - but you need processor power for it. I also hear that the BSoD has been upgraded to RSoD!!!

And if you use Firefox and proxomitron like me, you will stay bug free. I don't even have anti-virus on any of my machines(*and* my kids don't have admin rights!)

So thank you Microsoft! I will keep my dollars.

Fundraiser for American Heart Association

A plea from my kids:

Hi! I’m joining in the American Heart Association’s Jump Rope For Heart event at my school. I will be jumping rope to help the American Heart Association raise money to fight heart disease and stroke. Can you help me by making a donation? Thanks!

The American Heart Association's online fundraising website has a minimum donation amount of $25.00. If you want to donate less, that's ok. You can just send the check right to me and I'll make sure the American Heart Association gets it.
