Google Wave at I/O 2009

If you keep up with what’s new on the net then you’ve probably heard of Google Wave by now.
I can’t wait to give it a try!  I’ve been a member of gmail since I could get my hand on an invite years ago. I’m sure Wave will be great as well.

Windows 7, Rawr?

I’m writing this post from my Laptop which has been running Windows 7 (RC) for over a week now.

As far as looks, this is Vista which an update; Same general concept on most things.  I have not found anything so far that I did not like with this OS.  Since this is the RC I expected a few bugs however the only thing I’ve noticed is a problem with Sleep/Hibernate functions.
I usually don’t shut my laptop down, I like to hibernate it.  So this is a bit of annoyance, about 30% of the time the system will just crash as it tries to hibernate.  Aside from that, I have witnessed no issues with Windows 7 RC.

HP 23" 1080p LCD – Tech

Oh yes… I am now rocking a HP 23″ 1080p LCD (w2338h) monitor!  Large upgrade from the 19″ I’ve been using for a year now.

Prior to this 23″ I was running with the 19″ Widescreen (seen in the photo to the right) and a 15″ standard LCD as my secondary.  So this upgraded was a 4″ jump for both monitor positions! The new 23″ comes with (1) HDMI and (1) VGA port.  My NVIDIA GeForce 9800 has (2) DVI ports but luckily I have a HDMI to DVI adapter saved  from my last card so I was able to utilize the HDMI port immediately.
