Rookie call… BAD call!!!

Written by Cornelius J. van Dyk on . Posted in Blog

I can’t believe that coach Jim Caldwell pulled Peyton Manning and the other Colts starters from the game in the THIRD quarter of today’s game against the Jets.  What the hell coach???!!! 

Has nobody learned ANYTHING from all the years the Colts would rest players and then proceed to LOSE in the Divisional Round of the playoffs?!

In the fierce rivalry that is the Colts-Patriots, the only thing BB&P (Belichick, Brady & Patriots) could not do was to run the table and go undefeated.  So why then, when it’s so close within their grasp, would the Colts NOT go for it?  Because you’re afraid Manning will get hurt?!   Oh please!  He’s Mr. Invincible who’s NEVER missed a single game in his career.  No, what I think it is, is a rookie call.  Don’t risk the players because IF they do get injured then you’d never be forgiven.

This is reminiscent of the Prevent Defense.  Like I always say, when you please not to lose the game, you’ll end up not winning the game… At least BB&P had the guts to go for glory…

I could forgive a coach for going for it and getting a player injured.  That’s the risk you run.  If the Colts end up NOT winning the Super Bowl this year, it would be hard to forgive the coach for giving up such a golden, once in a lifetime opportunity…

How do I? – Ensure IIS 6 has Integrated Security turned on for Anonymous access to my SharePoint site

Written by Cornelius J. van Dyk on . Posted in Blog

  1. Start IIS Manager.
  2. Expand “Web Sites” until the web app of your site is visible.
  3. Right click the web app and select “Properties” on the dropdown menu.
  4. Select the “Directory Security” tab.
  5. Under the “Authentication and access control” section, click the “Edit” button.
  6. Check the “Enable anonymous access” check box is checked.
  7. Check the “Integrated Windows authentication” check box.
  8. Ensure all other check boxes are unchecked.
  9. Click “OK” twice.
That should be it.  You may need to restart IIS if caching is delivering the same results as before the change.

How ‘bout dem Cowboys?!

Written by Cornelius J. van Dyk on . Posted in Blog

OK Tony Dungee, I have a world of respect for you, but when you said on Sunday “The Cowboys don’t have ANY hope of beating the Saints.”, you should have known you were making a dangerous statement.  That’s the same thing they said about the Patriots against the Rams in the 2001 Super Bowl.  Nothing fires up a team like being discarded.  So dear Mr. Dungee, with love and respect… EAT YOUR WORDS!!!

Dream car

Oh my goodness!  Have you seen the new e-Wolf e-2 electric sports car?!  Holy moly!  This thing is SUPER impressive.  It’s 4 wheel drive, kicks out 200 kW power and over 1,000 Nm torque and it’s light sub 1,980 lbs weight means that it gets from 0-60 mph in under 3 seconds! 

It sustains a similar pace as it blasts up to 125 mph in less than 7 seconds!  It tops out around 155 mph, but I think that’s because of a governed top speed more than anything.  Now if I had one, I’d surely hack that governor… just to see how fast it would actually go! 

Of course all electric cars have to be charged every so often, but this one charges up in under 1/2 hour and runs for 250 miles.  Not bad for an electric.
