A friend of mine went to describe a co worker as "I was always told by my mother if I had nothing nice to say about someone say nothing at all. How are the Blue Jays doing?"
Personally at this point I think the same thing can be said of Metallica. ArsTechnica has a review of people doing the pre-release review of Metallica's latest .... effort. Once again they are shunning their own audience trying to make something good out of it. As usual the amount of negative publicity out of this is creating more problems then good. Oh well they will learn one of these days. Maybe when they go back to being a band and not a bunch of money grabbing jerks.

For a while now whenever I have had to shut down the laptop it would always do so willingly until the point where it should have powered down the fans and turned off. At that point the system would BSOD and reboot. This naturally made the shutdown procedure a little more complicated than it should have been because I would have to use the power button to turn it off.
No more! After installing SP3 and last night's first shutdown it turned off with no BSOD. Three cheers to Microsoft for finally getting it right .... three services packs later and many patches.
Where is my linux box?
