Get with it Microsoft

Whoever's running Microsoft's Certification web developers needs to push some content refresh knowledge their way:

"The Microsoft Certified Application Developer (MCAD) credential provides industry recognition for professional developers who build powerful applications using Microsoft Visual Studio .NET and Web services on the Microsoft .NET Framework 1.0 and Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1."

Funniest thing I've read in a while

In an article by The Register, the F-22 Raptor is described as potentially serving as a high-capacity battlefield WiFi provider, thanks to its 548 mbit/s data transmission and 1 gigabit/s reception capacity.

"Hello F22 pliot,

my name is Barrister Macaulay Kava, I connected to your F22 Hotspot with my WinXP laptop when I saw you fly over Lagos.

Would you be intersted in a business proposal....."
