Thanksgiving Day is here and while I am not going to make a whole blog post on “what I am thankful for,” I do want to thank Ted Leonsis for some Caps tickets on Monday night. The Caps stink, but the game provided an opportunity for one of the AIM Product Managers to get up on the JumboTron not once but twice. First she competed in a contest, which she won thanks to high crowd approval ratings, then she managed to get on the “Kiss Cam.” Ryan you represented yourself and AIM proudly, and provided a bunch of good laughs.
One item that caught my attention on Facebook yesterday is a new application called AIM Buddy Info. You can check it out on my Facebook profile here. The application will show status icon, status message, buddy icon and buddy info. There are some settings associated with it so if you do not want to expose some of the features that is possible. This is definitely a great way to share AIM information in Facebook.
Vista Server Execution Failed Error. Further work on my system, this may well be ONLY a Microsoft issue, compounded by AIM. After a complete system rebuild to factory settings, and no installation of AIM, I started having problems again. I have just un-installed one of the Vista Updates (KB94169) and things appear to be working again. I have posted to Jhoson Zhou on Microsoft TechNet forum as well. Hope Msft can get a resolution to this soon. I have only had time to resolve on 1/3 systtems here at home. My apologies if my earlier post was too harsh on AIM. Happy Thanksgiving!
