It is a constant headache that Microsoft's own email service, Microsoft Online, uses Exchange 2007 instead of 2010. The whole lack of search folders until you connect exchange to the email service is a major detriment to my own ability to work.

Cloud providers like Amazon and Microsoft could let customers host a web application and limit the available cpu and bandwidth based on current ad revenue. Put in seed money to get your initial hits, then turn the site into an Ouroborus (self feeding/eating monster). If users really like the site they can contribute directly or via subscriptions. Probably not a great idea, but a decent one best suited to not for profit websites.

Just a heads up since this information eluded a lot of web searching, the ATI HD DVI Component Out adapter (the one w/ al the DIP switches) does NOT work with embedded ATI HD 3300 graphics. At least not on my Biostar TA790GX XE mobo. Too bad my older hdtv doesn't have HDMI inputs.

I couldn't figure out why my war file was so damn big, until I realized that by specifying the webinf folder in the war task, I was compressing/including it twice. Since my fileset already included WEB-INF, I didn't need to specify it twice. Just deleting the <webinf/> element fixed my problem and I no longer have files which are twice as big as needed.
