Vista VPN Vacillation

I tried setting up the NCO Secure Entry Client on Vista x64, but just couldn't get it to work. Before I found that VPN Software, I contacted Dell and they sent me out a Vista x32 installation CD that I could use to re-install my OS if it came to that. I messed around with x64 and NCO Secure Entry Client until the install disk came and then I punted. The Vista install took about an hour or so and the VPN setup took another five minutes to setup and test. It came up fine the very first time.

Maybe Cisco will get with the program by the time I'm ready to get a new machine. I wonder if that extra 2G of RAM will fit in my W2K box...

When the Latest and Greatest isn't the Greatest

I thought my Windows 2000 computer was starting to show it's age. 512M of RAM and a 200G hard drive just doesn't go as far as it used to. I setup a Vista laptop a few months ago and it's working pretty good, so figured I'd take the plunge and get 6GB of RAM and get Vista x64 to take full advantage of it. Everything was going fine (with the normal Vista quirks, of course) until I tried to install the Cisco VPN client. Seems as though there is no support for Vista64 and my particular VPN software.


I found NCO Secure Entry Client and will try to set it up, but we'll see...

Adobe Automation

I have a friend who needs some Adobe Acrobat automation. The project description is:
We need to find a programmer who is willing to do some high-end Adobe form work for us.

We need to embed a "send to" button in some of our company forms so we can email the form to clients who can input the data and submit the form back to us by clicking on a submit button on the form.

If anybody has this skill set and is interested, please email me at marist89 (at) excite %dot% com and I will forward to the appropriate party.
