I dunno what it says when technological aspects of my life can be summed up by Winnie the Pooh.

“I don’t see much sense in that,” said Rabbit.
“No,” said Pooh humbly, “there isn’t. But there was going to be when I began it. It’s just that something happened to it along the way.”

… which is the only explanation I can give for Monday. I’ve been limping my tower along on Vista (yes, really) until I could replace my printer with one that has Win7 drivers and ya know, pay for another lisence for Win 7. I’d been looking to wait until I was done prepping my taxes (which requires a good amount of printing things), and Monday, my tower decided it was tired of waiting.

Bastard machine. :sigh: Doesn’t it know that we haven’t gotten all of our invoices paid up for the first of the month yet? :shaky fist:

While I’ve managed to get things into some semblance of working order for now, it does mean that I need to finish getting things together for taxes so that I can shut the tower down, wipe it, install Win 7 as my new OS, & acquire a new printer. Considering that I also need to redo that entire corner of my apartment so it’s more like an office and less like a hovel of work-related detritus, I sense this may be a Weekend Job of Work. gah!

ZOMG it’s a baby rhino! How can you not love the baby rhino?

I wish I could have found the original on the AP since having worked amongst the celebrity set ruined any desire I ever had to read sites like… jezebel.com, but hey – beggars choosers & all that, and dude, HOW FREAKIN’ CUTE IS THAT KID?

Back later kids – don’t blow anything up while I’m gone!

    I totally needed that baby rhino today. :-D

    Also, both the Vader commercial and the retro-swing banjo player are awesome. What band is he in? I love retro-swing.
