So, my AC stopped working last night. I live in Central Florida, and it’s August, which means I was in hell. Melissa and I tried to fix the issue, but eventually accepted that we needed a professional to repair the system. A mechanical engineering friend of mine recommended Gembecki Mechanical, so I gave them a call. I was quite pleased.
Melissa had called me yesterday morning to let me know something was up with the AC system. I was really busy at work, and hoped she was just crazy. I forgot about the problem, went to the CoLab Orlando open house and came home. When I got home, I learned quite quickly, that Melissa was not crazy at all. Continue reading
So, my buddy Alex, a Web Developer in Melbourne, came up with the idea to aggregate news to a single site: ucfinsider.com.

For those of you who don’t immediately see what I’m talking about, look at the lines on the screen ‘command.com’, ‘config.sys’, ‘bio.com’, ‘comspec.exe’, and ‘memory.dat’. Those are all very MS-DOS like files that run under typically Windows operating systems.
Seems appropriate, I suppose. Just think about it: “Police states of the future choose Microsoft!”
