Handy command line for squeezing spaces within a text file and translating them into colons.
tr -s '[:blank:]' '[\:*]' output.txt
If input.txt has the following line:

I needed to add an expires header to an apache 1.3.x instance and the mod_expires module was not included in the build. However, I noticed (using
httpd -v) that mod_headers was included.

Ego Docs has strong words for Opera Web Browser when trying to create a new Presentation:
Sorry, but this browser does not support web presentations.
Usually, this is written the other way around to say the application does not support this particular browser. But, in this case, Google words it as though Opera does not support Google Doc's presentation application.

I stumbled across an interesting feature in Google Spreadsheets which allows one to generate a simple form and have the responses automatically stored in a Google Docs spreadsheet complete with summary of results. The form can be sent via email, embedded on a page via iframe, or linked to directly as its own page.

I am still trying to deal with the news that Microsoft has cut the Flight Simulator team. Of course, I feel horrible for the people who may have lost their jobs. I also am disappointed about the possibility of Flight Simulator not continuing to be developed. For most games, I wait until they hit the bargain shelves before purchasing. However, Microsoft Flightsim is the one game that I purchase soon after it is released and pay full retail price. The game was also directly responsible for most of my computer hardware upgrades and Microsoft Windows upgrades.
