Apple releases iPhone OS 3.1 Beta 3

Since I am a registered developer I can not post details but I can say that some non developers have gotten a hold of the OS and posted information.


AT&T calls being dropped in Norther VA

As of 3pm calls with iPhones running 3.0 and 3.1 are dropping like flies. Many of my friends & clients have reported to me that for no apparent reason their calls are being dropped. If you have any other information about this issue please comment.

Feel like death

I rapidly became sick, massive drainage via nose and eyes. high fever (103), chills, sweats, shaking, vision became blurry and violent coughing.

Went to the hospital last night because I started to hallucinate because of my fever. The pressure started to build up all over my body causing very bad cramping and pain.

The nurse swabbed my throat and nose. I got a chest x-ray also to make sure it was not pneumonia. The x-ray was clean but the swab came back with a diagnosis of influenza type A.

A little info on Influenza type A.
nfluenza Type A is the most common and also the scariest of the three influenzas, causing the most serious epidemics in history.

The virulence of a virus is determined by its ability to adversely affect the host cell, host organism or population of host organisms. Influenza A viruses have been responsible for four pandemics of severe human respiratory disease this century. Avian species harbour a large reservoir of influenza virus strains, which can contribute genes to potential new pandemic human strains. The fundamental importance of understanding the role of each of these genes in determining virulence in birds and humans was dramatically emphasised by the recent direct transmission of avian influenza A viruses to humans, causing fatal infection but not community spread. An understanding of the factors involved in transmission between avian and mammalian species should assist in the development of better surveillance strategies for early recognition of influenza A virus strains having human pandemic potential, and possibly in the design of anti-viral strategies.

A generations moment in history

My generation had it’s first defining moment in history, tonight. We took back our country, and put a leader in place that knows what it is like to be a true American. The world watched but I shedded tears. A tear came when I heard President Elect, Barack Obama state the many ethnic backgrounds in the opening of his speech. Obama said the most amazing things to every person in the country. I am glad I could support our new leader by casting my vote.
