  • Meanwhile, the Richmond Times-Dispatch reported last week that agencies' Web portals were down and the DMV's 74 service centers couldn't process drivers' licenses. The outage was caused by 228 malfunctioning servers, the newspaper reported.

    This computer shutdown is a new black mark for the VITA-Northrop Grumman partnership, which began in 2005. A legislative audit last fall slammed the agreement''s performance and prompted criticism from lawmakers. Since then, the two parties have been working together to improve service.

  • How about a website in which people can give away unwanted items and receive free things from others? This puts the phrase "One man's trash is another man's treasure" into practice.

    I had one such call earlier today with a professional services firm who talked about the evolution of the use of ThoughtFarmer at their company. Like all of the calls we have with customers, it was rich with insights into the real world problems and day-to-day challenges faced in organizations trying to be more communicative, collaborative, and productive."

    Clean markup and building with web standards not only helps you do this, but will save you both time and money in the long run.

    As the web expands, so the technologies that it uses grow with it. While HTML has been around for a long time, it has acquired quite a few sidekicks along the way.

    First Javascript, then CSS, XML and later AJAX. Wide adoption of HTML 5 is just around the corner, with Firefox, Safari, Opera and Chrome already enjoying nearly full HTML 5 support (the slow kid on the block, Internet Explorer, is lagging behind as usual).
