I visited PETCO Park for my first time since it's grand opening a few weeks ago. It's a great facility located in the heart of San Diego's Gaslamp Quarter and right across the street from the San Diego Convention Center.

What made the trip even better, was that the Padre's beat the Expos 3-2 in the bottom of the 9th!

If you're in the area and have the chance to watch a game, I highly recommend going. If you can, get seats on the bottom floor of left field, they have a great view of the entire field. While you're there, treat yourself to one of the many restaurants within walking distance a few blocks away!

I found some great open source backup software the other day called BackupPC. I encourage you to check it out if you want an easy way to setup automatic incremental backups, it's really a great piece of software.

MSIE Broken Again

Well, Microsoft has managed to break MSIE again.

It turns out that KB832894 breaks the behavior of KeepAlive when under SSL. If you let your KeepAlive session then attempt to submit a form, the browser will not actually post any request parameters to your action.

One fix is to disable KeepAlive for MSIE clients. Unfortunately, this makes websites with multiple resources on their site quite sluggish because of the additional overhead of establishing a new connection for each resource. There was a similar issue ages ago (back in the MSIE 5.0 era) where a very similar bug would surface if KeepAlive was on.

A better fix is to install Mozilla or Firefox and use that as your browser instead.
