  • Why I’m glad I have a copy of XP kicking around at home.

    Shit, Microsoft, it’s dead already. Let it go. You’re releasing fucking Windows 7 in like a year anyway. PS: Sometimes, I love this job.

  • Damn.

    I could have paid $1000 less for this and not had to go find XP compatible drivers for my beast of a machine currently sitting in my living room? And yet I did it the hard way anyway? … Yes, I am ubergeek. But we knew this already. ***************** Canada’s … Read the rest
