Okay - looking at this article from CNN -
I start to get a tad annoyed. All I really want to see is the original Star Wars, in it's original format, with the original voices played by the original actors. Is it SO hard to simply release the DVD box set in the original format?
I mean really. This is getting silly.
Tomorrow I'm off to the USA for training, so I don't know how often I'm going to be posting on here.
Then again this whole 'internet' craze seems to be global, so I probably post from over in the US too.... ;o)
Bye bye Melbourne, see you in here in a few weeks!
For a variety of reasons I decided to bite the bullet and install the Windows Service Pack 2 on my trusty Toshiba Portege M200 tablet PC.
All I can say is WOOOOOH YEAH.
There is a bunch of stuff in here that is brilliant for Tablet PC users, and also for other stuff as well. Service Pack 2 is basically an upgrade to Tablet PC 2005. Free upgrade! :o)
The new writing input panel context is incredible - now it shows up whenever you come across a input field, instead of you having to manually open and close it. Also, character recognition is definatly better - not to mention the fact that the writing pad will translate your handwriting as you write so you can see if it's correct or not as you do it.
I could go on about the new bits and pieces - but here are some links to articles that explain it better:

The other big thing I found useful was the move to the Microsoft Bluetooth stack. Before this came along, I was running the Toshiba Bluetooth stack, which worked fine for most things - however did not get along very well with my new Nokia 6230.
I uninstalled the Toshiba version (as described here) and installed SP2 and now, my Nokia phone talks happily to my PC.
So all in all - I'd like to say WELL DONE to Miscrosoft for once, it's been a pleasure working with you.
