Originally released in 2001, Windows XP has reached the end of its useful life. Microsoft announced that support (including security updates) will cease on April 8, 2014. Then, last week, with a minimum of fanfare, Microsoft sort of took it back.</p><p>What's going on? Joe and Jesse try to get to the bottom of it all with the help of Bryan Brayton – the Network Engineer for the City of Plattsburgh, where he’s been for the last 6 years. Previous to that he was the Network Administrator at Clinton Community College. He’s been in the IT field for about 16 years, has a BS in Computer Science, and is a Microsoft Certified System Engineer. His areas of expertise are in Windows servers and computer networking.</p><p> Tue, 21 Jan 2014 16:35:00 +0000 Joe Donahue 82278 at http://wamc.org Jesse Feiler - Windows XP Jesse Feiler - Ebooks Today http://wamc.org/post/jesse-feiler-ebooks-today <p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">&nbsp;&nbsp;</span><span style="line-height: 1.5;">&nbsp;&nbsp;</span><span style="line-height: 1.5;">Our Tech Guru, </span><a href="http://www.northcountryconsulting.com/node/800" style="line-height: 1.5;">Jesse Feiler</a><span style="line-height: 1.5;">, joins us to discuss what’s new in </span>ebooks<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> and apps.</span></p><p>Jesse Feiler is an app developer, consultant, trainer, and author.

The meteors will appear to emanate from the constellation Gemini (thus the name), but that's just an optical illusion. The meteors are actually remains of an asteroid whose fragments burn up in Earth's atmosphere as our planet passes through the field of debris.<p>Unfortunately, this year the prolific shower will have to compete with the bright rays of the waxing moon.

This is the first time that three such planets have been spotted orbiting in this zone in the same system.<p>At just 22 light years away from Earth, Gliese 667 is a relatively close — in space terms anyway — triple star system.
