@cpuguru yes, and possibly legacy .Net services. This is from memory, traveling now.
Yes, and possible legacy .Net services, but doing this from memory (traveling).
@cpuguru Re:win2008r2 asp errors V have you installed the legacy IIS bits on the server? This has helped w/backward compat issues in past.

RT @TheFlowGod Just explain it’s a solenoid valve, not a control valve. Bada bing, bada boom-it works./new tweet an early Christmas present!
I just updated the firmware on my Motorola Droid (version 1, two years told). Project Elite 5 was the first ROM I loaded after I rooted my Verizon Droid Version 1 phone. I updated to CynogenMod 7, but it appeared to be buggy, and I had performance issues, including the phone rebooting while using the GPS. I’m currently running the Steel Droid 9.0 ROM.
Upgrade Guide – the guide is very complete, but my notes are below
- Backup apps using Astro File Manager
- Backup SMS using SMS Backup & Restore
- I used RZ Recovery ROM, but I’m getting 404 on all the download links and I have ClockworkMod Recovery installed now.
- Follow the install guidelines and delete/format all data and cache on the device.
- Install the optional ROM
- Re-install Astro and SMS Backup, and restore your apps and data.
- Enjoy your new ROM!
Project Elite – Droid 1 Only

Thanks to all the students and parents for coming. My big fear with these types of presentations is that no one will show up.
Below is a link to the presentation. The version I used in the presentation was a draft I downloaded from Google Docs, so the download is the ‘cleaned up’ version.
Good luck in high school, and with your college selections. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Sarah or me any time.
I’m re-reading some and I’m sorry it took me this long to re-read them. With the volume of electronic communication we produce and consume daily, I believe it’s more important than ever to be mindful of the use of capitalization, punctuation, and spelling. Not only does this make you appear more competent (not smart, just not stupid), but it assures people read and understand what you are trying to say.
The Elements of Style, is under 100 pages including index, glossary, Introduction (E.B. White), and Afterword (Charles Osgood). It is a quick read and essential guide to English. The Introduction sums it up best:
“Seven rules of usage, eleven principles of composition, a few matters of form, and a list of words and expressions commonly misused – that was the sum and substance of Professor Strunk’s work.”
I recommend reading The Elements of Style first. It’s concise, and offers the greatest benefit for the least amount of effort. Leave it in the bathroom, and set a reminder to re-read it every 3-4 months until you have incorporated it into your everyday communication.
On Writing Well is a more comprehensive guide, and will require a bit more effort to read and process. This should still be left in the bathroom or bedside table.

@adfskitteh jokes about studs aside – tap on the wall, and the pitch will change as you hit the stud, because it’s denser.
