Link 17 Jan Microsoft Security Essentials for Windows XP Updates Until July 2015»

“In other words, while Windows XP will no longer be a supported operating system come April, companies will be at least partially protected (the actual OS still won’t get security updates) until next July.”

Oh the irony.

Text 10 Jan Windows Strikes Again

Small things upset me with the OS. Like allowing long path & file names to be created, accessed, but NOT moved or copied!

Text 10 Jan 10 Commands of Tech Support
  1. I’ll be the support technician, and you’ll be the customer.

These servers be acting up
These servers be acting up
These servers be acting up
And these techs be letting ‘em
These servers be acting up
These servers be acting up
These servers be acting up
And me I don’t be watching ‘em

[Verse]
These servers be acting up
We don’t be checkin much
Got a call, I’m disconnected
Gotta call you back, I’m playing Tetris
Facebook, gotta check my newsfeed
Gotta go out back and blaze some weed [edited]
Back at the desk, check the data center
Servers off gotta make it better
These servers be acting up
Sipping the redeye in my cup
In the shell, type the code
Wait a minute, watch it unfold
Check the status and read the logs
Rolling my eyes when the Bossman calls
How lucky I am to be working here
I keep forgetting that cuz I really don’t care
