A quick post – there has been another update of the theSnowSite posted by MMISoftware. Changes? Well, there is now integration with Google Earth so that kml (Google Earth) files are available for ski and boarding resorts, plus there is a link to Google Maps for getting directions and doing local searches etc.
I am a regular reader of Digg (if you don’t know what Digg is go and have a look – in brief, it is a ‘news’ site at which users get to vote on a story or website, the more votes it gets the higher it gets listed – Digg is a great way to track ‘hot news’). Anyway, one thing that is obvious from the Digg site is that if one of your blog posts becomes ‘hot’ it can kill your server.
One of MMISoftware’s clients wanted to set up a BT Home Hub (business service) in their office to use with their Macs. (The reason they wanted to do this was because they had been using one.tel (now part of Carphone Warehouse) and had experienced persistent outages and couldn’t get anyone at one.tel to fix it). So the order was placed and within a couple of days a box arrived containing the wireless hub, a CD and some phone connectors, and within the week the line was active.
