  • SDTimes has an interesting article about a “Delphi Starter Edition”.  It appears that the Starter version will limit the revenue of a user to $1000 in overall revenue, as well as limiting all database access.  They are going to be priced at $199.  It also seems like there can only be five of them in any given organization.  Folks in the community are discovering that the Starter Edition will be available February 1.  And now Tim Del Chiaro has confirmed it in his blog.
  • We recently changed the name of our “Inside Sales Representatives” to be “Account Relationship Managers”.   This lead to the following statement in our weekly Manager’s Meeting: “Well, that’s really in the hands of the ARMs”.  Heh Heh.
  • I want a Rovio.
  • I just realized that I have a Windows key on my keyboard and that I don’t think I’ve ever used it once. Now, I know that the key has been there for a long time, but I just now realized that I simply never press it. Maybe I should be.  Do you guys actually ever hit the Windows key?
  • Today marks the the 25th year after the Challenger explosion, and I heard them on the Radio talking about it, saying “Do you remember where you were"?”   I remember it as clear as day. I was standing in the front office at Pasadena High School, where I was a Latin and English teacher.  Our principal, Tom Hancock, came out of his office with an ashen look on his face and said “Challenger just exploded”.  It hit our area particularly hard, as Pasadena is a suburb of Houston, with a major NASA facility nearby (The famous “Houston Control”), and the astronauts had lived and trained in the area.  That moment is a very start memory for me.
