Sun has decided to change its business model and will rely more on service contracts and hardware sales rather than operataing system sales. This means it will be giving away Solaris for free. Here's an article about it.
I've started a new project which is turning out to be much more successful than I had hoped. It's called the V-Strom Owners Map Project and it's located at http://www.beens.org/v-strom/ . [ direct link to map ] Basically, anyone that owns a V-Strom sends me their location (city is okay, postal/zip code is better) and I plot it on a map. To assure everyone's privacy, I have a strict policy where I state that I will never release any personal information that has been disclosed to me to anyone. The problem is, some V-Strom owners want to be able to use the map to hook up with other V-Strom owners. (Actually, this isn't a problem, this is great!) So, here's my solution. If you are willing to share your personal information (anything you want: name, address, phone #, email address, anything...), then add a comment to this blog entry, with the number that you are on the map. Thank you to everyone for the kind feedback for this project, and I hope the blog pa
Got my new Suzuki DL650 V-Strom today (Saturday). It was only about 6 degrees C outside and windy, but had to take it out for a drive. What an amazing bike! I've upgraded from a Honda 80 Aero scooter to this... quite the step up! It took a few laps around the block to get used to the balance, the shifting, and the brakes, and then I was off! This bike has all the power I will ever need, and perfect handling. I hear it's going up to 9 degrees tomorrow... ( Toronto Star Review )
