Order of Canada ( from the article ):

"The Order of Canada recognizes outstanding lifetime achievement and contributions to society and the country by Canadians from all walks of life."

It's really pretty useless, kinda like an honorary doctorate

Well, for father's day I got my own iPod nano. I guess all my pressure for her to buy me one and stealing my wife's all the time worked! Yippee!! and if I have to replace the battery in a year or 2 because I've used it so much, then it is worth the 59.99 Canadian dollars. All it means is that I've gotten good use out of it and I should either look to upgrade it or replace the battery without hesitation.

Like I said, the Sony "Psych" sat in the package for 3 weeks before I decided to upgrade to the iPod. The iPod didn't even get put on the ground before the container was opened, and by the end of the day it was full of music! Some things are just worth a bit more money if it means you'll use it more.

Ease of use ( or more that she can actually use it! ) and a slick looking black iPod nano that looks pretty for her friends as well as 2 lines of free engraving on the back of it sealed the deal. The iTunes software is awesome too!

But what's with the white earphones coming with my black iPod? A slight overlook!

To be honest, I originally bought my wife a Sony Psych or something like that. It looked like a round piece of cheese. The software that it came with was cumbersome and not user friendly at all. And it didn't have accessories all in one place that, how can I put it... just worked with everything I wanted; Like the bose sound dock, car charger, FM tuner for , a comfortable running arm band...etc.

So I just returned the mp3 player that i bought my wife for mother's day and splurged to replace it with an iPod nano. Now, all I do is go to the online apple store and drool over which accessory I'm going to buy for it next! I'm obsessed! and it's not even mine, it's my wife's! I have to come up with a plan, so that she buys me one for father's day. I've already unplugged my amplified speakers from my computer, so that I can hook the iPod up to it and listen to my music... now, how do I convince the with that we need the bose sound dock system... hmmm...

The great thing about the iPod is that my wife can figure out how to buy iTunes from apple or pull them from an existing CD without any problem...and she is definitely not "gifted" when it comes to computers and technology!

anyways, got to go visit the apple store... maybe an FM transmitter to listen/charge it in the car. Yeah, I'm sure the wife won't veto that purchase

I've got those shoe laces that never untie! they are the best thing that I have ever owned ( ok, that might be an overstatement, but they're awesome ). They come standard issue in Solomon shoes. They call the system "Quickfit asymmetrical" lacing system. It's sad that the only reason we still tie our shoes is because that's just what we've always done, and velcro is just too uncool!

here is the shoe, I'm still looking for a better picture to the lacing system - the shoes

is there a particular reason why you are using database authentication? If you are going this route most databases have the storage of encrypted passwords built in ( Oracle has excellent documentation here). But for enterprise systems, external authentication (LDAp, Active directory, etc... ) provides single signon for users and flexibility for integration of authentication into existing systems. Just wondering if your hands are tied, and you can't even consider external authentication.
Peter, please post a contact email so these eager people can send you a resume. I don't want to clog up this forum with everyone just posting "Contact me....". We appreciate that you are using our forums, I can atest that there are lots of very qualified people participating in our forums.

thanks,

Couple of options. If the computers are in a Domain then use Group Policy to restrict everything.

Another option is to setup a Windows Terminal Server and have it only deliver the single app to the user. I know this is possible because we do this where I work and the users are only able to access specific applications and nothing else. But I don't know how they do it.


I like the domain group policy idea. We are currently in the process of moving to a domain login. Hopefully it will be implemented in time to pursue this option.
I'll have a further look into the Windows Terminal Server idea to see if it fits into our distributed delivery model.

Thanks Gregg
