One Character == World of Suck

Ladies and Gentlemen, today you are going to learn a lesson on why you do NOT edit the active directory directly for exchange attributes. Background A long time ago, we had a very crappy provisioning system for our hosted Exchange 2003 platform. It worked ok, but missed a lot of things that we wanted to have set. They also were kind of pricks when it came to licensing so making a ton of money on the platform was hard to do.

Twitter Issues

Has anyone else been having a bunch of issues with Twitter as of late? It seems like the service is even more unstable than is has been in the past few months. My biggest complaint right now, besides it being down a lot, is the profile settings. Yes, I’m _finally_ getting around to setting a profile picture for my @usrlocal account. Here is what I get when I attempt to upload my image:

419 Morons!

Good lord! I can’t believe that people haven’t learned yet. In the past week, I have seen 2 stories about some dumbass losing hundreds of thousands of dollars to a scammer in a 419 Scam. First we have John Rempel who sounds like not only did he lose his own savings, but decided to take some friends and family along with him. Nice job John! Next up, we have Richard T.

Secure Backpack

Those that work with me know that I am a huge fan of the products put out by 37Signals. They have created some great apps that are simple, clean, and rock solid. The concepts aren’t always new, but they have made it so anyone can login in and hit the ground running. There is a *lot* to be said about that ability to have well design applications. I can’t say enough great things about their apps!

Des Moines Flood Pics

As many of your may have heard, Iowa is flooding as are other parts of the midwest. Cedar Rapids is really bad from what I hear. I’m in Des Moines where things are bad, but we’re not completely screwed yet. I will be posting pictures of the flooding as I can. They can be found in this flickr set. Let’s hope for dry weather.
