A New Definition of Stupid – Trisha

I do not consider my Blog as a tool for bashing, but desparate times call for desparate measures.

Andre – Have you ever meet me? Have you ever meet Chris Pirillo, whom you call an idiot? My guess is no, you haven’t. So why don’t you just shut your stupid mouth.

Published By BC_trisha_anne


Trisha, you define the word idiot perfectly, you must have invented the word because you are it for sure. Yes, I have communicated with Chris Pirillo, I have watched him on Call For Help since September 2002 including his 18 hour CFH Marathon to evaluate whether he is an idiot or not. I did not say he was idiot in general, I said he was an idiot because of the no reason for hating a product.


And don’t tell me to shut up, you are the one who chose to come to my Space and comment, this is "my space", my opinion, anything said here by you are or me, is my property. Trisha, I have evaluated the type of person you are and I have come to the conclusion you are nothing but an Air Head waiting to pop. If you don’t any better to say or do, go help your mommy cook dinner or celebrate New Years.


Again, your grammar stinks!

New Year Message from Andre

Happy Holidays

and a

Prosperous New Year!

To You All 


I would like to wish everyone, the very best for the coming New Year. Let us continue to encourage one another in a positive way and look for only the best qualities. Let mistakes of the past year drift from our mind, building new beginnings and renewing friendships for a brighter tomorrow.


 Special Thanks go out to the MSN Spaces Team for providing an excellent platform for me to speak and share my views on the things that interest me the most with the rest of the world.  


2004 has ended on a sad note, with the recent tragedies that have taken place in the countries surrounding the Indian Ocean. Let us pray for those countries and for the families that have lost loved ones. And if you can help, click here to do so.

My MSN Space Plans For The New Year

MSN Spaces has given me the opportunity to share my experiences and express my opinions and views on the world of Technology and it has also given me the chance to meet new persons who share my passion and interest in Technology.

That is why I feel its time we in the MSN Spaces community form a special Technology Alliance, to recognize and differentiate ourselves from the majority of blogs in the community. Basically, give ourselves some true identity and prove to others what makes our Spaces so special. Their are lots of you out there who I know would love to be a part of this group, from Loadsgood, to TDavid to Canadianhawk, just to name a few.

Let us come together to empower ourselves and make a clearer point!
Start spreading the word by blogging it and tracking it.

Thank You,
Andre Da Costa

Let Me Make This Clear – I DO NOT hate Anyone

Based on the comments I have been receiving, its obvious MSN Spaces is crawling with a lot teenagers, and I like that, its refreshing to see that Microsoft has product that is reaching out to audience because it is just plain COOL!

Now, lets talk about Blogs, this is a whole different business. I believe that persons who believe that they have a blog should be careful, especially teenagers here on MSN Spaces, because they feel like they are on cloud 9 because they have opportunity to blog all the crap they want.

Yes, blogs are a way of expressing ones opinions, but please people, make sure your content makes some dang sense. The comments I have been receiving from these simple minded kids are just not smart enough and are not even worth quoting or re-mentioning. But, please if I call someone an idiot, it does not mean I’m unkind or I hate them, its just my way of saying you are talking crap. Kids, remember to look up the definition of your words before you put them in your comments, its really embarassing when you use them out of context.

Again to those calling me boring, hypocrite, at least have decency to put something more on your blog than just 1 post.

The Hypocrite I Am & The Boring Drivel I produce

If its one thing I believe, 16 and 14 year old idiots should not have blog, because they seem to only make illiterate comments:

That was the most boring, silly piece of drivel I have ever read!


Well, the reason why its boring to you maddskillz, its because you are young and naive, go learn your ABC’s before you make a comment or start a blog, you are nothing but a pathetic little rugrat looking for attention.

Andrews Ugly Boo
I recently said some things about Chris Pirillo and Microsoft Outlook; I called him an idiot because of his lack of a functional reason why he really hates the product. Later on I sent out a small little season greeting and blessed Christmas post. A comment was posted concerning the seasoning greeting and my bashing Chris by an unfortunate not so smart 14 year old. Read up:


This coming from someone who in the previous blog called someone else an ‘Idiot’ because they didn’t like something? I would say you are a hipocrite! 


First off, learn how to spell, the word is not spelt hipocrite, its Hypocrite. I’m a hypocrite; can a person who just started puberty talk more nonsense? If you read half the junk this child has on her space you are destined to suffer a brain haemorrhage. If I were her mother, I wouldn’t let her stay up until 11 PM on school nights and go out to movies by herself at 8 PM. The next thing I would do is ban her from having a boyfriend. A Fourteen year-old girl should not have a boy friend, she should be concentrating on her education and learn when to make a sensible comment.

2005 – The Microsoft Year

Trust me, it belongs to them. I believe the company has certainly made a lot of promises for the coming new year, and have really evaluated what should Microsoft be and mean to Customers, Businesses and Partners in 2005. What is that resolution specifically? Simple, to be open and honest. Its the best and only way the company can win and continue to have users trust in them.

In 2004, Microsoft had some of the worst highlights, and I believe all of that will vanish in the new year because of the new transparency and offerings they will display and have for us. If the company continues on this path, they will of course be successful. A lot of issues such as Security, Migration, Alternative Platforms seem to have been in the best interest of the company’s competitors, but the only way Microsoft can counter attack these tiny hindrances and keep them at bay is to explain to us and put on the table the benefits of a Microsoft platform, identify the key benefits over the so-called alternative solutions.

Microsoft needs to remind us, why we chose Internet Explorer, why we stay with Windows, why Microsoft products are best to run our business on top of. They also need to evaluate their competitors and bring to the table why FireFox does not provide the best experiences for surfing the web and preach to us that their is really a secure of version of IE called IE 6 SP2. Microsoft has the power, but we need for them to start using it. A website would be a great start to promote the exceptional differences of Microsoft products, solutions and technologies. I believe once customers see the comparisons they will think differently about jumping into problems. Make it clear to us please, so far you have started with Get The Facts Campaign, but make widely available to every aspect of the company.

Andre’s Microsoft Prediction’s Update for 2005

Beta’s, lot’s of them for 2005. The biggest of them all has to be Longhorn, which I know a lot of you are desparately anticipating and expecting. It will come in 2005, but don’t count on it necessarily being February, May or June 2005. A lot of challenges in the computer industry and at Microsoft are counteracting the planned schedule for a beta 1 coming anytime near soon.

The recent EU ruling, which requires Microsoft to un-bundle its Windows Media Player is one big reaon. This basically requires the Windows Team, to remove the component from all editions of Windows sold in Europe, from Home Edition to 64-Bit Edition. Ultimately this requires re-engineering and a fair amount of testing before it is made available to users. The reason for this is tied to Microsoft’s integrated strategy, over the years, components in Windows have become very dependent, integrated and connected with each other, making it difficult to disconnect everything that’s connected to it without bringing the ntire house down or affecting functionality in specific components.

So like I have said many times before, late June, (possibility) for beta 1 of Longhorn, (likely possibility), September 2005, announced at PDC 2005 and made available to testers in November 2005.

What’s getting ready for 2005 so far?

January – February
We know that Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 (orginally expected Dec. 2004) should be here early in the first half of 2005. Next up is MSN Messenger 7, which has added some cool user experience features, such as Contact Cards, Nudges and Sign In Modes just to name a few.

Windows XP EU Edition (Windows Media Player Not Included)

Windows XP Professional x64 Edition
Windows Server x64 Edition (Standard, Enterprise & Datacenter)

March – April
Expect beta 2 of Windows Server R2 to be widely available for testing.

WinHEC (Possibility of Longhorn talked about, but tiny amount information relating to System requirments, and start building Longhorn ready computers today theme.

Longhorn Beta 1 and Office 12 Beta 1 (maybe, maybe not), but you can probably expect final releases of SQL Server 2005 and Visual Studio 2005 by this time, (don’t tell me you forgot about these two)?

MSN Desktop Search could also be released with MSN Messenger 7, but there is still a lot to be done, I expect to see some major improvements, so August is a best best for a final release. Will we also see a MSN Spaces final by that time? I think so.

PDC 2005, well, this looks like it, Longhorn Client Beta 1 and Office 12 Beta 1 announced, made available to attendees and available fully to testers in November (another quick refresher by Mr. Cooperman again why we should be interested still).  Presentations on recently released products such as SQL Server 2005, Visual Studio 2005, VS Team System, VS Tools for Microsoft Office 2005 and how developers can start harnessing the power from them. Next up is an overview of the past months, Windows XP Professional x64 and Server 2003 x64.

Released: Windows Server R2, Windows Server Computer Cluster Edition
Note: This would mean Microsoft has released two sets of Windows Server operating systems in one year. COOL! Volumen License and Licensing 6.0 Customers are going to be happy in 2005.

Longhorn Server Beta 1, Longhorn Client Beta 1 made available to select group of testers.

Aren’t you tired? I just went through 2005, dang, that was fast.

2005 is certainly turning out to be a busy year for Microsoft, not to mention the usual annual revision releases of products such as Encarta, Money, Works Suite, Digital Image Library (Picture It) and many more.
