I have days like this at work. I’m even guilty of it myself sometimes.

Our friends at the Mozilla Foundation provide some good tips on how to choose a strong password.
Next week I will be traveling to San Francisco to attend the 2010 annual meeting of the United Methodist Information Technology Association (UMITA). Representatives from the IT staff of many of our Annual Conferences will be meeting for a week to discuss the latest technology trends, share insights and fellowship with each other. Unlike previous years we are coordinating our meeting with the United Methodist Association of Communicators (UMAC). My presentation this year will be on migrating our e-mail infrastructure to Google Apps. Last year I presented on the Google Apps system in general. This year I will be discussing where we are in the overall migration along with lessons learned. I’ll have to keep in mind during my presentation that the room isn’t just full of other IT folks.
The conference this year takes place in San Francisco! I am particularly excited about this trip as it is the second time I have been able to visit the west coast. These opportunities don’t come along very often. I doubt I will have much time for touring the city since our schedule is full of action packed meetings and social events. Since the Giants beat my beloved Braves in the NLDS maybe I’ll be able to catch a baseball game? I wouldn’t mind visiting Alcatraz if time permits. Ah well, meetings come first!
I remember when 404 and 500 errors were just that, error messages. We have all seen them when we try to browse to a website and we have trouble communicating with the remote server. They can be so much more though. When a 404 error lives up to its full potential the result can be a work of art. Remember, if it’s on a computer, it will someday break. I also find in life it’s important to not always take oneself too seriously. One of my favorite websites, Hootsuite, provides today’s examples:
Hootsuite.com is one of my favorite online apps by the way. You should check them out when they have finished resolving this problem…
