GPS, Maps, Whatever...

This is a compilation post of some cool stuff happening lately:

Tim is going to South Carolina for a Code Camp with Jeff, John, Joseph and Dru. These guys are renting a van and driving to Greenville this week. There are gonna post pics on Where's Tim via flickr and several podcasts, so be sure and check these cool-nerds out during their road trip!

  • Guardian recently threw up an article about GPS uses and interviewed Tim for most of their quotes and information. Read the article here.

  • Microsoft now has a 'service' to show you on a map where hotspots are near you...view it here.
  • I have also recently tested the Microsoft MapPoint OCX with our legacy ParaPlan software inside Access VBA and it works like a champ! More info soon!

Simulating A Right-Click From The Keyboard

I have been doing quite a bit of LogMeIn (IT Reach and Rescue) lately and sometimes my mouse right-click does not work to get context menus.  Therefore, if you ever have this issue, just select the icon or item you need and press [Shift] [F10].  I am sure Tim could have told me this, but he wasn't here :)
