Wii Makes Me Sleepy

I picked up my new Wii on Monday! (Thanks to Dano for getting us into the NOA Store!)

The Wii is amazing - everyone loves to play it! So far my favorite game on Wii Sports is Bowling, but Zelda is darn cool. What surprised my the most is how easy it is for non gamers to pick up a controller and play (and get addicted) without any real learning curve. My wife, who uses her mouse upsidedown (don't ask) always has a tough time playing video games because the controller seems backwards to her. She picked it up and was playing right away!

All I can say is that after a couple of good boxing sessions, I needed a nap. And my bicepts and shoulders were sore the next morning!

Holy Bangkok Thai!!

Thought that I had already eaten the best Thai in Spokane… I was wrong. Bangkok Thai in my new favorite! Their Curries and Phad Thai are amazing. It helps that they deliver, but their restaurant is beautiful. Check out their site at:

My new favorite gadget: Nike+

I've been back into jogging for a few months now and I bought the Nike+ iPod Sport Kit a few weeks ago. Of course I had to get new shoes, an armband and the Sport Kit (almost $200 total) but the end result is that I'm actually running more and faster than I had been in the past.

Before the Nike+ I would just use my Timex and track my total times. Now that I'm uploading my runs to the Nike+ site, I'm spending time tracking, comparing and goal setting every day. I'm a bit addicted actually.

There is so much to do on the site. I can even challenge friends to virtual races. I just hope that they keep adding more features. More to come...

Seven2 Getting Props for Netflix

Not a bad article that sizes up the Web's biggest spenders. Our own Reverend Tyler Lafferty got some good ink in regards to the work we did for Netflix, which happened to be very effective by the way. Here's the article on MediaPost.

Nintendo E3 2006

I'll be at E3 in a little over a week; I can't wait to play the Wii. I hear there is a new racing game that Nintendo might be talking about that uses the new controller in to radically change the way we play racing games. Being a huge fan of racing games I can hardly wait. Throw in networked play and we should have a blast!

Last year I played the new Zelda on the Game Cube, but it still hasn't come out. Maybe they'll port it over to the Wii as well. Even if they don't, there will be a ton to do at the Nintendo booth.

I Heart Treo 700 Sync Errors

I bought my Palm Treo 700w from Verizon in mid February and had nothing but trouble with the Exchange ActiveSync for the first 45 days. For a few minutes the Treo would sync up fine, then at a random interval I'd get an ActiveSync error. Typically I'd see errors more often then I'd have a successful sync.

The error codes were all over the board, but I usually saw 85010004, 85010001 and mostly 85010014. There is a good source for Exchange Error codes at:

Over the month I spent easily a dozen hours on Verizon's tech support. Typically they'd try and help for a while, trying all the obvious stuff, then they'd bring someone from Palm on board. Palm support was knowledgeable in all cases but one, where I had to end the call because the guy on the phone barely knew how to use the internet.

With all the support calls we'd soft and hard reset the Treo. They had me re-set all of my settings and such over and over. But they were stumped because the device would sync for a minute then stop syncing later.

The solution! My IT guy Matt Cardoza found the solution on his own. I'm not sure if Palm or Verizon even knows how to do it right yet. Basically our Exchange server is set up to use multiple IP addresses, but Outlook Mobile Access on the server was set to only use one IP address. This is why I could connect every once in a while but get errors the other times.

In his words: Our Exchange server has multiple IP addresses, however the IIS Instance associated with OMA/OWA was only configured to accept connections from 1 IP Address.

I had to set the “IP Address” property in the IIS Instance that served /exchange (and all the other Exchange web folders) to accept “(All Unassigned)”.

Apparently the intermittent errors were due to the server going Round-robin with all the available IP Addresses, and by allowing all IP addresses, the authentication errors were resolved.

Once this easy fix was made my Treo 700 connects perfectly all of the time! I no longer see the 85010014 or any other error. Now I heart my Treo 700w.

The Lamest Valentine Ever

Does Go Daddy love us? They sent their customers an email today that links to a "special" Valentines Day message. It's hideous - don't even bother to go view it: Here.

Now that's what I'm talking about!

Mac OSX on a PC - it's about damn time right? Now if I could only sync my treo, access an Exchange server and have the latest apps fully functional... Oh wait I do, I have an XP laptop.

Either way, I still love my old Mac cube.
