Solaris 10, Beta7

Solaris 10, Beta7 is expected to be released tomorrow; you should be
be to get it here......


Marines revamp SCM ??

Ok this is the scoop.."A modern military needs more than high-tech
weaponry. It needs an IT-driven supply chain that delivers the right
information and the right supplies exactly when troops need them. To
that end, the U.S. Marine Corps is overhauling its supply chain, which
serves soldiers in Iraq and around the world, with new business
processes and Oracle's enterprise applications. "

Category 3 threat-level viruses

Breaking News : 2:00 PM EDT Fri. Oct. 29, 2004

The latest iterations of the mass-mailer worms include W32.Beagle.AV@mm, W32.Beagle..AU@mm and W32.Beagle.AW@mm

They affect systems running Windows 2000, Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows Me, Windows NT, Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP.

There ...So now be forewarned !!!

Open source marketing

Open-source web browser Firefox has good buzz, and not just because it's mounting a fundraising effort to buy a full-page ad in the New York Times.

Here's a $100,000 question: Is raising money for a six-figure full-page newspaper ad open-source marketing, as some call it? Perhaps, if you accept the premise that the Mozilla Foundation (the open source organization behind Firefox) is relying on its customer evangelists to fulfill a marketing goal. (As of this writing, more then 9000 have have contributed money toward the ad campaign.) The fundraising effort has parts of the blogosphere talking, but arguably that's due the participatory framework of evangelist involvement"

St. Bernards of St. Bernard closed ??

Oh thats so sad, the Offical St.Bernard dawgs are being sold away at the 17th century old monestary of St.Bernard.

The earliest mention of St. Bernard dogs at this hospice stretches back to 1695. "The issue of those dogs - the famously huge and heroic ones, who toted brandy barrels in legend, who lived here for centuries and sniffed scores of stranded travelers out of the snow is that the descendants of the dogs who gave the breed its name - and this nation a symbol - might be put down or not find proper homes."

These are a really adorable dogs. My Aunt in Holland had on !!

Sun setting the standard !!!

Interesting to boot is that Solaris 10 Beta7 is being release today . Jonathan Schwartz's Weblog says this ;

Sun and Microsoft agree ; Sun and Intel agree ;Sun and the Apache Software Foundation and JBoss agree

Agree on what ?? multi-core computing will be charged per socket.( Read as being per user)

This is really neat , its the same as per seat licene ..correct ??

Jerry Yang Speaks

This appears to be the First posting of Yahoo' Chief !!!

"This is stuff we only dreamed about ten years ago and its helping redefine what we do with search today. RSS is allowing people to access exactly what they want and wireless is letting us deliver the information wherever you are. People aren't chained to their PCs anymore and neither is search. Yesterday's introduction of Yahoo! Search for Mobile is just one example of how technology is propelling search forward. Search is literally in your pocket and at your bus stop. It doesn't get more integrated than that."
Did I dig for 'david filo" ;
Google : Results 1 - 10 of about 75,200 for David Filo

" Looters stormed the weapons site at Al Qaqaa in the days after American troops swept through the area in early April 2003 on their way to Baghdad" -via NYT

Theres a couple of good SatCom Pics on Al Qaqaa (the site where the munitions went missing).

"While both HMX and RDX can be used in detonating nuclear bombs, there is no indication that whoever took the explosives has materials for building a nuclear weapon. Those materials are more difficult to acquire" Pike said.

HMX /RDX profile statements


It begins in small ways.. heres the barebones on the new dotcom bubble for business2.0 and web2.0 !!!

".. senior executive assistants will see the greatest increase in starting salaries of any single administrative job classification in 2005, with base compensation expected to rise 6.3 percent to the range of $35,000 to $46,250 annually. Senior executive assistants supporting C-level executives in large firms will likely draw higher starting salaries. Average starting salaries for executive assistants are expected to increase 5.6 percent to between $30,000 and $38,000.
Starting salaries for medical customer service representatives will increase 5.9 percent to between $22,250 and $27,500 annually. Patient registration/admissions clerks can expect starting salaries to rise 5.2 percent to the range of $22,250 to $28,000, and medical records clerks will see starting salary increases of 4.8 percent, to between $20,000 and $24,000.

Letting you carry an entire library of your favorite music — up to 15,000 songs — or enough photos — as many as 25,000 — to fill nearly 200 slide trays or cover nearly 5,000 square feet of wall space. ...Use the included AV cable to connect iPod Photo to a projector or TV. You can mesmerize friends and family with a glorious multimedia experience, offering them a breathtaking slideshow accompanied by the music you already have on your iPod Photo. Of course, you get to choose the songs, albums or playlists. " !!

NASA tops Speed computing

Revenue drivers thru Adsense

Oleg started this thought process..darn him.. !! His posting is here ( actually slept on this for quite some time)!! Makes my mind spin in terms of marketing morals etc !!

Ok here's the deal, what happens if you pepper your posting with comments from mulitples pesudo users...each comment is populate with the URL setting of that of a unique Adsense Link

Now SiteVisitors normally are inquestive by nature and they just click the commentor's link to surf onto that person site /blog .... ..but then they get directed to an adsense link.. so the CTR (Click Thu rate) from your site actually bounces up...

So what gives...create a parser for RSS Adsense feeds, create a script which populates comments on a blog page and then wait.. it can be done manually also.. .. so If you create 10 comments with 10 adsense links.. what happens ?? at least 1 in 10 vistors normally try to review other sites /urls correct ??

Did this make sense ?? what of marketing morals and other stuff like that ??

This is Crazy - Platypuses !!

"The weird and wonderful duck-billed platypus just got even more weird and more wonderful.
Platypuses are famous for laying eggs yet producing milk, having a bird-like bill and a skeleton with reptilian features. Now it turns out that the mammal has an equally eye-catching way of deciding its sex, according to a study by Frank Grützner and Jenny Graves at the Australian National University in Canberra, and colleagues.
In most mammals, including humans, sex is decided by the X and Y chromosomes: two Xs create a female, while XY creates a male. In birds, the system is similar: ZW makes for a female, while ZZ makes for a male.
But in platypuses, XXXXXXXXXX creates a female, while XYXYXYXYXY creates a male. In other words, rather than a single chromosome pair, platypuses have ten-chromosome chains that determine their sex. "

Eh ??? Then the odds are that they are more advanced then the human species !!!!!

Code-named Magneto

My GPS Unit Will Be Watching You

"Every Step You Take . . . Every Move You Make . . . My GPS Unit Will Be Watching You"

Technology may be ushering in a golden age of stalking, in which predators use GPS, cellphones and other devices to track and terrorize."

Robert Sullivan became America’s first documented GPS-enabled stalker, we are faced with a classic technology dilemma, as perfectly legal and useful devices are turned to less savory ends. GPS units help to track rental cars, Alzheimer’s patients, wandering children, wandering cattle, wandering fur coats. Miniature video cameras monitor babysitters, and keystroke-recording software monitors children’s Internet use. But just as drug dealers appropriated beepers and terrorists the Internet, these technologies and more are being embraced by a new breed of high-tech stalker.

RFID's still seem to have a major industry glitch. Bar Codes are

Picketing Chatter

Just could not resist blogging this... thread !!

Someone wrote : "Just wondering what's happening today at your offices, anything exciting? Are the picketers in your view? Are you experiencing any long delays? Seems our EDI is running well, no delays to speak of. "

Someone Replied :"It is hell here today. There is a minimal 100 picketers outside our window. They are blocking trucks at 20m in intervals and then letting very few in before they block again. The police are here but they are letting them carry on with this procedure.If that's not bad enough they are also blocking the exit that the drivers use once they clear customs. The back up of trucks is as far as I can see, so they are probably looking at delay times of an hour or more just to get into the customs compound."

Another Replied :"Fort Erie is experiencing about the same situation as Windsor. All you can hear is the drivers honking horns. Picketers are allowing one truck every twenty minutes to procedure to the QEW. Most Customs Officers feel it will be over by Friday.. Hope they are right."

Someone wrote "Here is the latest from our two border offices (Windsor and Fort Erie)"

MicrosSoft Products Suck !!

Hmmmmm.. this is interesting thoughts from Rob. S. , Evangelist for Microsoft.

From PC tablets to search engine Communities. He's now moved into a the most profound dynamics of all, by openly admitting the mistakes that Microsoft makes. ( Wonder if he ever read MicroSoft Rebooted!!).

Anyway, the very nature of his blog implies a very important (VERY=BIG WORD) mindset change with the corridors of MicroSoft. They need more of his breed around. Sanjay P., I think has given him a good peep talk on the nature of following ones heart to create "true lovemarks". Thats exactly what the Mac Community dote on Apple, yet with MicroSoft, everyone still crys wolf !! Its only when the whole of MicroSoft begins to behave, think and act like Rob, will they be able really move into the hearts of their customers. Say what you mean, mean what say, and always tell the unvarnished truth. ALWAYS !!
All companies are born to die, just like all people are born to die. Being on the of the richest Corporates, does not mean that one has the right to do as one please. Pleasing the customer is the most important aspect of the brand Harmony. I wonder if they have a brand Manifesto, I would like to see that .... :)-

What Lovers Tell Us About Persuasion

This is interesting... "there was a third set of communicators who employed a breathtakingly simple and successful procedure that we term the relationship-raising approach. Before making a request for change from their partner, they merely made mention of their existing relationship. They might say, "You know, we've been together for a while now" or "We're a couple; we share the same goals." Then, they'd deliver their appeal: "So, I'd appreciate it if you could find a way to change your stand on this one." Or, in the most streamlined version of the relationship-raising approach, these individuals simply incorporated the pronouns "we," "our," and "us" into their request."

Try it, feel it and you'll love it ..and if this not an innovation , then me is toast !!!


Never is execution more important than when innovation is at the heart of a strategy. That is because innovation always involves treading into uncertain waters. And as uncertainty rises, the value of a well-thought-out strategy drops. In fact, when pursuing entirely new business models, no amount of research can resolve the critical unknowns. All that strategy can do is give you a plausible starting point. From there, you must experiment, learn, and adapt.
A good point .. cutting edge means , throw yourself over the cliff and hang in there !!!

Top20 Security Vulnerabilities (Updated) ~ The Experts Consensus

The Top 20 is widely used by organizations as a security benchmark.


This week's- 1Minute Strategies:

This week's - 1 Minute Strategies:

* Don't avoid introducing someone just because you forget his or her name. Admit - and apologize for - your poor memory. "I so enjoyed talking with you at last month's conference. I can't believe your name is escaping me right now, when I want you to meet my colleague, Jane Gibson. I'm so sorry." Then, repeat the name aloud, to show that you're making an effort to remember it this time. And if someone neglects to introduce you to another person, step forward, extend your hand and do it yourself.
* Don't appear disorganized. When working as part of a team, determine who will deliver information to the boss ….. and who won't. Example: Will the person gathering training-cost estimates present them to the boss, or will the team leader do it?

Reading my Brain ?

Researchers have identified a circuit in the brain that appears crucial in converting short-term memories into long-term memories. The circuit links the major learning-related area of the brain to another region that governs the brain's higher functions. The studies may open the way for eavesdropping on one of the central processes in learning and memory.

California Institute of Technology published their findings in the October 7, 2004, issue of the journal Nature.

This is conceptual model of what happening , out there.

She talks about novelty analysis, using the "Difference Engine" they've .... They have a prototype called News Junkie that pesonalizes news using onfromation novelty:

This is then followed by ..."he talks about noisy channel information finding. For example, in spelling correction the system tries to figure out what the original (intended) spelling was based on the misspellings introduced by a "noisy channel." We're moving from "doe sthe page contain the query terms" to "Does the page satisfy the information need."

Microsoft moves into this Sphere too !! and this goes beyond the RFID manadate

With the DOD going RFID full for inventory and This will happen by a 2007 mandate.

However, there are concerns about market thresholds and standards. Like Oracle is upbeat with China. Other concerns... This playing feild is wide open for opportunity!!

Finally, RFID will tell you what you need to know in Kobe, Japan !!!

Legg Mason's =The next Most powerfull .....!!

"Legg Mason Funds Management Inc. and Legg Mason Capital Management Inc. collectively own 4.3 million Class A shares of Google, or 12.77 percent, as of Sept. 30, said the filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

At Tuesday's closing Nasdaq price of $138.37 per share, the 4.3 million shares are worth about $595 million. Google shares were sold to the public at $85 each, which would give Legg Mason a gain of $229.5 million if its stake was bought in the initial public offering in August. "

Just got of the Lightening Investor CNF Concall. Some the question from investors and answers (described as my thought flick'r) !!!

What is the risk management strategy for synergy cohesiveness for Sales& Market and how will the gains be used for new business strategy ?
Proceeds not to be used for aqusition but will be used to merger costs. These costs will be leveled out in 2005 and effects will be approx a penny a share!!

What happens to the remaining 2 business Units. Will there be cost cutting and plan to create a synergy for collobration of these units under one umberalla.
Yes, we will rightsize to move all units under a single folio. Global Solutions is the projected way for the current folio!!

Was the logistcs pices on the table as part of the deal ?? Were options were on the table ??
Aquistion team opted for various pieces.

What is the MWW head count that will be transfered to UPS ?
All head counts will go to UPS.

How does the Depreciation leveling look like once the complete transfer has occured ?
About 2or 3 cent costs per Quarter. No offset at current projections.

Commitment for tendering or calling for debt ratio and what is the credit rating standings ?
Postive comments from credit rates. Covenent with the Banks is in good standing. No degradtion to investment grading. Debt instruments is being used for leverage of Cash accruals (130Millon).

Timing for closure of Transaction
3 jurisdication needs to be looked. Transaction closure slotted for end of Q4/04.

Outsourcing contracts for MWW. Do these Outsourcing go with transaction ??
They go with the Transaction to UPS.

Tradelines that being given up to UPS. How much was market segmentation.
1/3 is import, 1/3 is exports and approx 1/3 never touched the US.

Summary Brief
CNF is moving towards a consolidated Global Logistics player. The merger of Conway, Menlo Logistics, Vector SCM will formulate leaner organization, which will prove higher investment rations. CNF's strategy looks firm. Growth factoring looks ripe. time will tell !!!!

UPS's strategy should be based on assimliation with a "new wave culture" theory, to sustain vision of Broader Supply Chain Initatives to enable Global Commerce.


CBSA staff on Strike ??

Many federal government employees (including CBSA staff) will be in a legal strike position as of Thursday. As such, work disruption could take place in the form of "work-to-rule", rotating strikes, or a full-scale walk-out.
The service provided by the Electronic Commerce Unit will continue 7/24, but, with very limited resources. We will, therefore, have to suspend some activities to accommodate urgent production matters. For example, client testing and the addition of new profiles will not occur during strike days.
We will update our hotline message as the need arises to advise if/when the ECU has scaled back service. We regret the inconvenience that this may cause you and we thank you in advance for your cooperation in this matter.

This is Ridicules !! As an entiled citizen, I protest this behaviour !!

Mobloging Worked !!! The only sticker is that I am getting a signature mark, where I can't figure out where it comes from !! Next is to get my photo site up and going.

Update : Leaning towards Yahoo for everything. They just launched a preview of My Yahoo! Search. Excellent way to go. I love their beta RSS feeds too. But its slower then Bloglines. The "stickiness" of bloglines is better. Faster feed and update cycle's.

There is still no update's feeding on the Search engine Wars. Everything become silent suddenly !! Whats happening ?? Is the NDA a very tight noose around thier necks ??

Likewise the squabbles between Google/Yahoo.

Om Malik is off the air on this very important footnote!!

Now go figure, why telcom's have monopoly !!!

Sun Microsystems is exploring a margin-negative model

Sun is moving downstream towards market capitalization thru 'handout' type, market peneration technique. Sun is seeing notable presense of competition (stiff!!), from Red Hat !!

IT in tears !!

The relationship between IT and the rest of the business needs to be like a marriage with a good deal of mutual give and take. Failed marriages can be saved but it isn’t a comfortable process for the partners. Harsh truths have to be acknowledged and long-standing habits changed but the rewards can be great when IT and the business pull together and deliver a coherent strategy !!

Pity that this site is not RSS feed !!

Hunt is on !!

Unless your RSS userland, can you get this info !!

"It's a trend on the rise right now," Mr. Gartenberg said, "especially for employers, who get a much better sense of a person this way. Résumés and interviews are a very scripted process; read someone's Web log and you get a good sense of that person's thinking and perspectives."

Are you an prospective employee ???

Tickle's the brain !!

So this is whom I am ????

My Results metrix !!
Your Intellectual Type is Word Warrior. This means you have exceptional verbal skills. You can easily make sense of complex issues and take an unusually creative approach to solving problems. Your strengths also make you a visionary. Even without trying you're able to come up with lots of new and creative ideas.

It sucks to be me !!!

Kinky ...Google Cuffs!!

Google needs human capital consumption to sustain growth. Yet , there is, "The loss of key employees is a real risk for a technology company after it goes public," said Eric Jackson.

"Based on Google's share price of around $130, senior vice president Bill Coleman estimated that around 60 percent of the 1,900 Google employees with the company at the end of March each now hold stock options worth at least $1 million."

Go figure... approx $2,166,000,000,000 market captialization...and that is in ...$$$ value !!! as per NYSE and Nasdeq!!

Is this true ??? $130 x (60%(1900 employees)) x 1,000,000.00 worth??? = $$2.1 Billion ???

Is my thinking wrong ??

What a wierd "La La La La" !!!

MicroSoft Outsourcing even More !!

Whats the score here with the worlds richest man ???

"You can't go wrong in computer science.It is a little scary for me to see people thinking of this as a zero-sum game. It is not like a war where you have one winner and one loser," Gates said. "China and India are the big change engines for the years ahead, and as we embrace that and understand our new role in that".

Yeah, who's God Given Americans right is it, to think, that they are the only ones who can leverage knowledge to humanity ??

This week's : 1 - Minute Strategies:

* Slow them down on voice mail. In the rush to leave a voice mail message, people often jumble their words. One word from you - "slowly" - reminds callers to speak carefully. Example: " Please leave a clear message and slowly say your phone number so that I can return your call."
* 3 easy ways to reduce computer eyestrain.
1. Position papers the same distance away as your monitor, so your eyes don't constantly refocus.
2. If you forget to blink while concentrating, keep artificial "tears" handy to lubricate your eyes.
3. Clean the screen.
