Well kept secret : Screen Recycler. I just discovered this software that allows me to use my 24″ iMac as a secondary display for my Macbook Pro at the same time I can use the iMac’s virtual desktops to use the 2 computers at once. Really nice. You could use the software to use an old laptop or an old computer as a secondary display or even work with 2 laptops, the setup of my dreams would be to work with 2 x 17″ Macbook Pros side by side.
I have not been very active on my blog lately and will not be for the next weeks. I am getting married in Mexico on february 14th and will have to take care of family and friends for a few days before going to Cancun for our honeymoon. I’ll try to post more frequently when I get back. In the meantime, iWeb’s Blog has become really interesting since Heri took the lead. It’s a must read and it has a lot of web hosting related content !
Tried upgrading my jailbroken iPhone to 2.2.2 and lost some time figuring out why everything was working but I had no signal. I finally found this site : Tip: I jailbroke my iPhone 3G and now I have no signal that made my day better ! Signal is back, iPhone is upgraded and I should now be able to install Truphone and see if it is better than Fring for Skype calls.

I hope I will not need to use those tips, but it is a really nice read from Guy Kawasaki : OPEN Forum by American Express OPEN | The Art of Laying People Off.
Looks like I might have scared some people with this post. I had no intention to do so.
Let me tell you a bit more…..
I like the post not because we are going to lay people off, but because it talks about taking responsibility for your actions as a business director and some other concepts that are very important for me. Unfortunately I do not have time to explain how I apply all those tips, but let’s look at one :
Don’t let people self-select (#10 on the list)
I think this tip does not only apply to lay offs. It also applies to what position you want an employee to fill, where you think he fits. Do not let the employee go where he thinks he fits, bring him where you feel he will be the best. Sure this has to be done while respecting the interests and the objectives of the employee, but as the tip #10 says, don’t let people self-select, put them where you need them.

I came around this nice site that allows anyone to ping a web site or IP address from 27 different locations : Just Ping. Very nice tool when you want to troubleshoot random network problems.
