Microsoft Windows 2000 vs XP Pro — any differences beyond cosmetic?


Monday, November 7th, 2005

The holidays be a-comin’, and my computer be a-fallin’ to bits. I guess after almost four years and several moves the cheapass desktop I bought is starting to lose its will to live. It’s making weird noises, and every once in a while it simply refuses to do things. I suppose I could get it […]

Let the fascination begin…
I moved the futon into the bedroom, frame and all. Now it serves as a full-size bed, and I can sleep in my bedroom once more. Eventually I may buy a platform frame, or I may not. Now my living room sit-down furniture consists of two chairs, and one is actually my […]

Psycho killer, qu’est-ce que c’est?

Friday, November 4th, 2005

Well, I piled half the contents of my bedroom and closet on top of my bed, and my cat is now reclining on top of the mountain, and the rest of the stuff is shoved haphazardly into the “dining room.” All this so the carpet people could finish doing the carpet, which is now nice […]

Halloween thoughts

Monday, October 31st, 2005

Well I’m feeling a lot better today. Which is a good thing, because I’m one of the three people at work who did what last company memo asked us to do and dressed up. I dressed as a gypsy — in other words, I dressed like I used to dress all the time, back when […]

And Walmart already has it’s Christmas section up and ready. So here it is: anybody want […]

Photo test

I’m testing Wordpress’s image uploading capabilities. I’ve been piggy-backing on my MT install to upload photos so far. Let’s see if they’ve ironed out all the weird cricks in WP:

Well okay. Though the thumbnail thing didn’t seem to work — I picked “create thumbnail” — where is it?
Anyway, that stuff growing all over the […]

My baby she wrote me a letter

Monday, October 24th, 2005

But the mailbox was full! So I’ll use this blog to write a thank you note to the person who sent his contribution to my little bleg button over there. Anyone else who wants to contribute to keep this site going are more than welcome to do so. I may even revive the Amazon thing, […]

You drove me to this

Update: bwahahaahaa!

Update: OMG this is the BEST WEBSITE EVAR!!! (Via some bloke in Bolivia or someplace. Oh how the hell should I know? He’s a foreigner, anyway. Or she. It’s the internet; it could be someone’s dog or cat for all I know. Or a stoat. Or a monkey with a fishtail sewn onto the […]
