One of my childhood heros has fallen to a new low and is not only no longer a hero of mine but I would punch him in the face next time I see him. Last time I saw him we did shots together, next time, you will be taking shots. from me.

 

In an interview with French daily Le Monde, Greg LeMond -- winner of the Tour de France in 1986, 1989 and 1990 said Cycling is doped and so is Lance Armstrong. He accused Lance of being a liar and a cheater, even though Lance has been cleared over and over again. Even though I have loyalty to Greg and my best friend growing up, Bill, is currently captain of Greg’s pro racing team, I have to say Greg you have now crossed the line.

 

Greg has never like Lance Armstrong. Maybe because when Lance (pre-cancer) started racing in 1994 he said “I am not the next Greg LeMond, I am the next Lance Armstrong.” Or maybe Lance’s victories have made Greg seem like an also-ran. Whatever it is, you must stop now Greg. Lance is a true hero and an inspiration to us all. You are a washed up athlete shooting off your mouth.

So the last time our NYC .NET Developer User Group speaker Brad McCabe came to speak, there was a fire in the Microsoft building and we had to evacuate. (And I did the raffle on the street.) Last night he came back and there was massive flooding in New Jersey where he lives, so he could not make it. I had to pinch hit.

 

I had the most fun speaking at a user group in years. I did a session on the ASP .NET Cache engine and we spend almost 2 hours talking all about the cache and dependencies like files and databases. Code and slides downloadable soon.

I thought it was “Dynasty” but Prince sang it like that last night while sporting a I Love New York Tee-Shirt. A great concert by Prince last night at the World's Most Famous Arena. (Madison Square Garden to you non-New Yorkers.)

A mixture of funk, acoustic guitar, blues and classic Prince tunes, the concert was well worth the trip. Kathleen's favorite song was the acoustic guitar version of “little red corvette.“

It was a long night, but the rack is all set up and installed. I did some heavy lifting and even got my hands and clothes dirty. This is a new side of IT for me.

RAID all ok. I've got app servers talking to the SQL Servers. Only problem left is the VPN router. Stay tuned.

In the process of installing Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition on three Dell Power Edges. Quite simple actually. Just wait the blog post when I have to install the RAID controller drivers. :)
