I found another networking site not to long ago and thought I would pass the knowledge on, it is called Ryze. It is a professional networking site that allows users to setup free profiles, add contact information and links to websites. It is pretty cool and have had only a little time to work on my profile but hopefully in the future it become a great place to connect with other professionals.


I have been trying to get some work done today and my Hotmail account is acting up. There is a server is to busy error so I am assuming that Microsoft is either updating the system (Hotmail has been in a BETA stage for awhile) or everyone on the planet is accessing their Hotmail accounts. Hopefully the problem will subside in the next few minutes so I can get some more work done before I leave work. Anyhoo gotta run.

Attention All Space Geeks

For everyone who doesn’t know, SETI is an organization on quest to find extraterestrial life. I have been a member since 2002 and during that time I have lent cpu time on my two computers to SETI for the computation of data. Finally I have gotten around to setting up a team, Goingbigger Exploration, and I am putting out the call to anyone who would like to join.
All you have to do is fill out the form and then install the software when prompted. Then enter the required info and you’re off and running.
"What is SETI? SETI@home is a scientific experiment that uses Internet-connected computers in the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI). You can participate by running a free program that downloads and analyzes radio telescope data."
I think is a fun a great thing to do for science and all that is required is running a program on your pc. The program manages everything and accounts are easy to access from the BOINIC software homepage. It is automatically interfaced with SETI so you can go directly to your profile and team page with one easy click. I hope you can join and if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask.

MSN Spaces introduces Live Spaces

MSN Spaces introduces Live Spaces today and my initial reactions are good except for one item, the URLs have changed once again. Finally Spacers are allowed to use the full width of the screen and add mutiple modules to keep in contact with friends. I doubt I will ever use most of them because of the time it takes to load my Space. I have added another feature spacer to bring my totaly to two, Jolie MaeRedwineGoesBig.
All these changes over the past year have shown that the Microsoft team has been working their butts off but I have one simple request.
Stop changing the URLs.
I went from a PR 4 to a zero, and probably less of a zero since the switch from htp://goingbigger.spaces.MSN.com/ to http://goingbigger.spaces.LIVE.com/. Will our once heftly traffic ever return or will the Spaces Team continue to change our address so we have to fully rely on Live Spaces for traffic? I personally like getting traffic for the various search engines around the world and getting new, non spaces related traffic.
It seems that this is just another hurdle for us to cross. This Space used to be my bread and butter when it came to page rank. Now it is my MySpace (PR 3) is my highest PR site. My real estate site is a PR 2 but it does way to much traffic for me to put to much emphasis on its PR.
Well I am off to see what I can do with the reconstruction of my Space. Take care all and chat with ya soon!
