Microsoft has a sense of humor….

Tonight I was cleaning up my MSN Mail account a bit and there were a number of messages under “POP” in the deleted folder…. it would not let me empty the items in the POP folder so I had to mark them to delete and then empty the deleted items… After marking them for deletion, I went and did the empty deleted item folder and got this message:


Ok… I find this funny.


HP Announces the end of the HP Media Smart Server Line

I saw over on the Windows Home Server Blog that .  This is somewhat disturbing because it is one of the commercial hardware vendors that makes this product relevant for the novice users.  The other item along those same lines is the Technology.  Both of these items allow a user to have a server class experience without being an IT Expert (or knowing one)! 

For the do-it-yourself type person, this probably would make much of a difference; however, I think that Microsoft will be selling the “Home” market short if they make these changes.  They might be able to hang onto the “Home Office” market assuming that these folks have some larger support organizations behind them.

It will be interesting to see if this is the beginning of the end for “Home” Server.
