Looks like Microsoft, Google and and Yahoo! have been collaborating on creating a standard for a sitemap file - used by search engines to get a better idea what pages are available to be crawled and if they’ve been updated recently.

Vista RC2 64bit on my desktop

Wednesday, 15 November 2006

I’ve taken the plunge and have started using my new Dell box with Vista 64bit RC2.

Hopefully I’ll get access to Vista RTM in the next week or so, then I can either install everything again, or just upgrade.

So far most things are working fine. There was a small hiccup this morning when I arranged for the IP address to be swapped over to the new box, but that seems to be resolved now.

Problems I have noticed so far are:

At the moment, I quite like the Sidebar, but it would be nice to have a weather forecast gadget along the lines of the Firefox ForecastFox extension.

Otherwise relatively smooth sailing so far.

I caught up with the news last night that Rev. Rod Dyson is the new Moderator-Elect for the Uniting Church in South Australia.. Yay :-) He takes over as Moderator next November.

Another famous person I can say that I know!

Microsoft Windows Vista is RTM

Thursday, 9 November 2006

Vista build 6000.16386 is RTM. Now to wait and see how long it take to be publicly available!

I bet lots of people wished that it was 16384 - a lot more geeky.
