Rant

Eeeevil!

Windows Update just croaked both my desktop and my notebook.  I've spent the past hour in the Windows XP Repair thingy.

That little yellow blippy can sit there forever as far as I'm concerned.  In fact, hey, c'mere.  Automatic Updates Off.  Little red blippy Always Hide.

Much better.

1 Automatic Update is truly evil. I have never turned it on. It's possible to make that little reminder go away. Originally I figured out the program that was doing it and deleted the program (and then went into the OS backup directory and deleted it there, too, so that it didn't automatically get restored) but later I found a place where you could tell Windows to stop bugging you. Alas, I don't remember the details now, but I think that the latter was a setting buried in the "Security Center" control section for auto-update.

2 Sorry for a little test. This is a separate line. This is also a separate line, with a blank line just above it. I think I'm going to lose my linebreaks when this comment is posted.

3 I don't know if it's your fault or my fault, but I no longer see any formatting controls for comment entry, and my line breaks are all getting eaten.

Let's see what happens to the two "br" tags I just put in above this line.

Hmmm... the comment I left ("Yes, Security Center is where it's at... I turned mine off 5 minutes after turning on my new computer.  Dialup and all that.  Blah blah blah") seems to have disappeared.

Something I said?

5 Um.  Don't know.  I was messing around with the comment system, but I don't know if the times coincide.

Would have been around 930am central time, which would have been, let's see... (the F1 race was at 1pm Sunday your time, and 10pm our time on Saturday, so that would make it... 13 hours, more or less, so...) 1030pm your time?  Give or take.

There were actually two comments, one here, one in the 2006 anime conversation, both poofed.

Ah well.

7 That was about when I was messing with the comments.  It was only down briefly, so I guess you were just unlucky. sad

Bad timing, indeed.  Oh well.  Lost the greatest line ever, too: "Pixy, I love you in the special way only a duck can love an evil magical girl, but I disagree with you."

Hey, there it is again!
