Between The Lines

Larry Dignan always writes well and this is no exception. Check out this article about the feeling of CIOs as to IT spending. The economy is always going to affect spending but on the other hand if someone needs to go out and buy something they will. It's the Micro vs Macro forces battling away at each other.

So far CEBIT hasn't disapointed; a lot has been happening and there have been some things which have resulted in confused looks and head scratching. Never a dull moment though.

Rest In Peace

I found this interesting blog devoted to the KVM Switch and KVM Extender Technology. The only problem is that it hasn't had a post since June 2005. Think how far KVM technology has come regarding the KVM switch in that time! It began in December 2004 and only has 10 posts which is a shame because each of them was very informative. They even have a post about Minicom purchasing Replicom. The blog was written by Daxten which is a huge name in the KVM Switch industry.
