There was a period around a year ago when I was on FB a lot. I'm still on it more than most other sites except Google search, but it's utility for me has declined significantly. There's too much ADD on there. I tried to get involved with a 'group' but the groupware features are too weak to support anything (traditional tools like message boards, email lists, chats, are better implemented by the old software that's just "out there" in the internet).
So I'm running some old web software that has possible vulnerabilities. Here's a log line with the hack attempt.
I got a cheapie from AJ Wright for $12, and it works okay, looks grainy but acceptable. At work we have a Logitech, and I think the model is the "9000". It cost around $70 and has a nicer picture, better auto-exposure, and a sharper lens.
The thing you don't notice right away is the "lag" that the cheaper camera has. There's a noticeable lag between the audio and the video, and this also seems to translate to a lag during videophone. I suspect that there's a little DSP work going on in the images, and the chips in the Logitech are faster.
For business meetings, if you have the chance to upgrade, go for it. The Logitech was rated high, as were the Microsoft LifeCam and whatever Apple sold, all in the same price range. Get one with HD resolution, a glass lens, and if you can tell, a fast DSP.
I'm reading up on Exchange 2010 and it's clustering and failover tech. It seems "wrong" to me.
I'm looking at some email archiving systems.
Here's one possible reason:
Here's a fix:
This article at livestrong reminded me of when I had tapeworms as a child.
A PHP script to convert many IP addresses to domain names.
This is a summary of articles found during cursory Internet searches regarding impulse buying and ecommerce.

Most of these are “newbie” articles because I lack marketing experience. This list has been filtered in based on quality. Star ratings ranging from 1 to 3 indicate perceived quality.
I was looking around for a hamster mange cure after an experience with a vet wasn't much help. Mange is a tick, and there are two kinds of "dip" to cure it.
Rsync is a good way to create and maintain a "mirror" of specific folders on your unix system. It's not good for archiving, for cloning disks, or running a "full/incremental" backup system.
If you operate a website, or wish to retain privacy while visiting websites, you need to be aware of how websites share their traffic data with other sites.
On numerous articles it's recommended that dried leaves be shredded to compost them more rapidly. The argument made is that it increases the surface area of the leaf.
That doesn't make sense. Most of the leaf's surface is flat, and chopping leaves only increases the surface area along the edges of the cuts.
