Best picture ever

I have hundreds of pictures of me, Christine and the dogs and numerous combinations of that but this is by far my favorite... for now.

Hulu in Canada!

After a little more Googling I found out how to use Hulu north of the US border. Grab a program called "Hotspot Shield Launch" from AnchorFree. It will (among other things) drop you behind a US IP address.  The install took about 5 seconds, and I was on Hulu shortly thereafter. You can with a click enable/disable it which is nice as it did degrade my connection a bit. Also, I did notice some ads popping up in the browser now so make sure you take a good long read of their agreements.

Hulu update

Still have not been able to get Hulu working in Canada even routing through US proxy servers. Would love to know if anyone else has had any success.

Nominated for the TechNet Canada Innovation Award

I'm not sure I have quite the following on this blog that I had on my prior but any online exposure to win this award could not hurt.

Several months ago someone submitted my name & info to TechNet Canada as a potential candidate for the TechNet Canada Innovation Award.

"The TechNet Canada Innovation Award is awarded to a Canadian IT Professional who has used Microsoft-based technology to make a positive contribution to their organization or community."

Pretty sure I know who did it - thank you. And for the other 8 people that hit this site feel free to cast your vote.
