Well its January 1 and there are changes a brew’n here in central Illinois…. and here are some random items…
- The wind is blowing and its 9 deg outside… but its suppose to be 50 by Sunday… I guess the heatwave is for all those from the south coming to the training that can’t handle the cold.
-Less than 6 days until the start of SharePoint Server 2007 training that we are hosting at Northwoods. I am getting excited about the week of training.
-Just as few days until the National Championship Game…. another Buckeye football season is soon to come to a close…. Hopefully this year’s will include a Championship Ring for our boys in Scarlet and Gray.
-We came home Sunday night after being at our Parents houses, while its not dial-up their DSL and Cable modem service isn’t great.. Neither my parents or nat’s parents ISPs clocked more than 2.5 mb down.
I came home and just had to compare what our bandwidth is, and its higher than before… we are consistently getting over 10mb down… its good to be home.
-Our local cable company is no longer Insight Communications…. its Now Comcast. As of Midnight last night the sale of rights to to be the cable TV provider in Central IL is now owned by Comcast. I don’t know much, or anything about Comcast so it will be interesting to see how it goes. I hope Comcast’s website isn’t any indication… When I visited the Insightcom.com website it told me to go to Comcast.com since they are now our provider.
Ok.. that makes sense, except to look up anything on Comcast’s site you have to enter your address where they identify our address as Not-Serviceable. Hmm.. I hope that isn’t an indication of the future. I guess I have really high expectations that when you purchase the rights to serve a region over 6 months ago, your website would be up to snuff on the go live date…
-The other big change in Central, IL is the smoking ban in public areas… No smoking within 15 feet of a door of any public building. As a non-smoker I think its great, but I am sure some don’t care for the new legislation to take affect.
