Since I use LinkedIn for managing business contctsextensively the potential for automatic updates has potential. I tried it on a Win7 64 bit PC with 32 bit Outlook 2003 & had to remove it after 72 hours. A previously well behaved Outlook installation started continually hanging up as it was apparently trying to contact LinkedIn to update my scores of contacts. There is no setting to say how often the connector should check for updates or any other configurations options at this time that I could find. I did notice that if I added a new contact via the LinkedIn website no new contact appeared in the LinkedIn folder and very often when I tried to link a new LinkedIn contact with a contact already in my contacts folder there was a connection error even if I put a copy of the contact into the LinkedIn folder. I contacted LinkedIn about this but have had no response. I'm not sure if the problem is with LinkedIn or the connector itself but until this comes out of beta and is more stable I'll stay away from it.

Hatred and idiocy again shows it's face on the UCSD campus after the shameful Compton Cookout incident. A noose was found hanging from a light fixture in the UCSD library yesterday. If this is a joke, it is NOT FUNNY. If it is racism then it must be stopped. My daughter attends that school, her dorm mates are a wonderful, racially diverse groups of girls, just the kind of 'melting pot' environment that I want her in. Obviously, there are all horrified as to what has happened. There is a student rally against such hatred planned for outside the library this morning at 8 am PST. Please give all the enouragement and support that you can to the students and faculty there to help stop such events from occurrng again.
