Told you Spooky. Total production killer.

I have the day off and it happens to be the day of the consumer preview release of Windows 8 so I'm sitting here trying to figure it out. Typing this on IE10, in fact. All I can say... those of you planning on buying a new computer in the next few years, if you don't like change... are you in for a biiiig surprise. Though I guess if you have a Windows phone it won't be that much different.

If you're not technically challenged, and you want to take a look at this, go to Gizmodo. I would not under any circumstance install it on your primary machine unless you're comfortable with dual booting. It is an early release after all.

Only problem with sticking with XP is that Microsoft is about to stop supporting it. As long as enough people are still using it the hackers will keep looking for security holes and MS will no longer be plugging them. The only safe options after that are to upgrade or disconnect from the internet.

Good news is, with 8 about to come out people should be able to upgrade to 7 cheap. And Windows 7 seems to be as stable, or more so, than XP. Also, it's not as big a leap in user experience from XP as 8 will be from 7.

Also, make sure you blow the dust out of your computer. That's what caused my old one to burn up.

I bought win vista a while back and never installed it, so I have that to fall back on if need be. But for now, I'll stick with XP because I dont like change in my OS. ;-)

WinVista sux. Don't ever install it.

Now I don't even feel bad that I'm not doing anything real productive today. I forgot it's the 29th. Free day!

Steeling myself for the line of tornadoes that the meteorologists assure us is heading our way this afternoon. Almost all the school systems in middle TN are dismissing early. :( :x :cry:

Still here! Thanks for the concern, Nevermore!

It was a tense several hours yesterday. We weren't done with the storms until after dark.

Waiting for lunch to heat up.

Earlier, voted on Super Tuesday.

Later, I'll shop for groceries and pick up kids form school.
