pranks on computers–the outcome!
Eva suggested I wait to come home to prank my son Sam and boy am I glad I did! Sam loves to use the computer – Youtube, games, homework (possibly in that order) are all activities he uses the family computer for. About the only time he isn’t using it, is when he’s eating, at school or sleeping...

my youtube channel - whoops!
i haven't posted a lot of videos to youtube and a couple that i did post were apparently marked because of the musical soundtrack (since i "created" the photo and video portion and own the music, i didn't think about using it to impress my grandma and other family members with my computer skills). i...

7 years at microsoft
Today marks my 7th anniversary at Microsoft. 7 years ago I couldn't have even imagined where Microsoft was headed. Three versions of Windows and Office (and Server, SQL, etc.) later, the company has delivered on software + services and now has devices coming. Windows 8 is the first time I've been as...
