I think it is safe to say I don’t like M$.
They have their place and they have done good things in the computer industry. It is just outweiged by all the other malignnt things they delight in.
This is a conversation I just had with my buddy Chad….

Oh yeah….This is Chad…when he was 15…when we were getting into all kinds of trouble..
What?
No no no….those stories are for like…never.
Chad:

(7:50:36 PM) Larry: tried it for ten minutes
(7:50:43 PM) Larry: removed the vm it was installed in
(7:50:52 PM) Larry: have no expectation that I will ever use it
(7:50:59 PM) Foreverkid: vm?

(7:52:28 PM) Foreverkid: you gotta disable all “skins” take the pretty out, will look old but rns mega faster… got to have dedicated video too

(7:54:01 PM) Larry: because it is the only way it is functional

Windows and “Pushing”

11/08/2008 Leave a comment

I do have several machines in my house.
I have:

Yes I have Windoze in my house.
I use my Black Macbook(Casper VonWhitenstein) far too often to have it really work as a media server.
I have the windows drives smb mounted to casper for easy push or pull.
My gripe is MS and their thoughts of “We will tell you how to use your machine. We know what is good for you because you cannot choose that for yourself.”
I had several tasks my little media whore was working on.
Microsoft comes along and decides it will restart my %*#&% box after I said NO!
These jerks basically came into my house and shut my computer down. Before anyone asks….YES I do have a legal copy. They came into my house when I said no and %*$(% with my *%&#^.
Personally I feel I am owed a personal call, with apology, from the Great Balding Ape (Balmer) and/or SatanoGates.

I don’t expect it to happen but when you work in computer environments all day you grow attached to how you configure them. I liken my home computers to be like my homes. I feel like I was robbed. Screw them. As soon as I have the time:

Ye olde peng is going back on that box and I will config me up some MythTV
I can then drop smb all together and just use NFS….hmm…yeah…..
I wonder if my wife would give me time this weekend…
