I was looking for cool website menus, and stumbled onto this piece.
I think Microsoft does things that make it increasingly longer to reinstall Windows. The other night I worked for FOUR hours re-doing XP, and I still wasn’t done. I still have to install the updates & put security in place – then it’s time to re-do my Vista laptop, as it’s been doing funky things, and while Microsoft has tried quite a few things, no “fix” has worked. They’re now suggesting I do , “in-place upgrade”, which is basically reinstalling Windows on top of itself. If it works, then it’ll be all good-if not, then I get to spend another evening babysitting Windows. Better than being bored, I suppose. Maybe I should get some sake beforehand next time.
Yay! Someone posted some vids of this. Of course, you have to search by the native name, but hey….at least they’re there!
Does anyone remember……Bod? I do! Wow, how times have changed!
3 days from today will mark eight years since I started blogging online. I first started writing down my thoughts on my various websites, but actual blogging was started on tax deadline day (4/15) back in 2001 (not the year we made contact, but hey – I can dream). It’s kinda funny how once upon a time, people would keep a diary or journal written down where they did what bloggers do now – only now it’s out there for all to see.
Well, on the advice of a good friend, I migrated my blog from Livejournal to WordPress. So far it seems to be going well, with just some minor updating needed to re-embed my YouTube videos – but that’s OK. I may have some podcasts going on soon too, so stay tuned!
Oh…and those of you who check out my Mari Iijima fan site at http://acrossthesea.shockqueen.com, I now have some new wallpaper to download on the photos & art page! Enjoy!
Well, we all knew it was coming – the tobacco tax went into effect, basically shooting the prices for cancer sticks/coffin nails/etc and related stuff through the roof.
Something to the tune of 200% from what I was watching on the news.
I don’t smoke, and never will – yet know many who do. I pity them, because in our tough economy, the last thing anyone needs is for something they like to shoot way up in price. However…it does force one issue….you can pony up the extra money, or just quit – it’s your choice. I know…it’s hard for some, but if it comes down to eating or smoking, which one are you REALLY going to side with?
Yeah…I’d want to eat too.
With all the clean air laws going into effect, and all businesses going smoke-free by the end of 2009, we’re gonna see puffers getting scarce awfully quick. That’s fine with me though – I don’t smoke…and never will, so I guess I dodged that bullet pretty well. 😉
and on that note………
