There was a writer who had an office that even his family didn't know the location of. He worked from 10 to 18 daily, writing. Wrote several books. He wrote horror stories. This was in the late nineteenth century.
How much room do you need to install a virus checker? Semantic Endpoint is enormous. What is it doing that requires such a huge install package?
I had a dream last night about running a network cable in a friend's house. Every time I thought I had the cable run, there was another obstacle to run tough or around. Every time I had a room wired up, there were three more rooms to do. I hate dreaming about work.
Normtastrophy: Every day is bat shit crazy.
I bet I have 25 USB drives at work that I use on pretty much a daily basis to get my job done.
I've only been to horse races once. I've only been to the dog track once. I didn't win anything. The only time I've ever won at gambling was a casino in Louisiana. I wound the night up $6 ahead. Every one else in the party left empty handed.
They started getting little bags of goldfish crackers at work in the snack bar. Bastards. That's my Kryptonite. God help me if they start stocking PayDay candy bars.
People seem to love San Fransisco. I've never been. I listened to an episode of Johny Dollar where he described the city like a seven jeweled something or other. I hear the weather is nice I'm told. It must be the atmosphere because I don't get it from the pictures and videos I've seen of the place. The stories, they tell a story of some kind of magic. Anyone out there on the internet hate San Fransisco? I want another opinion.
The thing that boots up your computer in order to install an operating system is in itself an OS. It is what I call a boot OS. There are many different names for it. These systems are designed for compatibility. They are designed to work even under unfavorable conditions. Every chance the programmers/designers get, they err or the side of "just get it working" and sacrifice performance and other factors. This approach doesn't work with full OS installs. Thus, when you boot Windows PE, ake install Windows, you will get far enough to boot the first GUI that comes up just long enough to tell you that your install media cannot be read, probably for lack of a driver. How did it get this far? Well, that is the boot OS turning over control to the install OS/program. They are written and designed by two different groups of folks with highly diverse needs.
The Greeks knew the world was round. At least some of them did anyway. They simply had the math written down somewhere. The navigation methods simply insist that they had to know this. They probably just didn't bother shouting it from the roof tops because it would cause confusion.
