- Nuked Windows for the first time in at least a year (last time was hard disk failure) … the waiting for updates to complete is the worst. #
- The nuke is finished. Now it's time to rebuild. #

Just thought I’d upload this photo of a “beer can chicken.”. It just looked so cool sitting there on the Weber kettle.
“They were testing the fences systematically for weaknesses. They remember.” – Muldoon (Jurrassic Park, 1993)
Jurrassic Park is an excellent move full of great, classic lines like the one above and fond memories of sitting in the third or fourth row of the theater with our six year old daughter and four year old son.
But it isn’t a great line when it’s your dog doing it to your fence. After repairing the replacement fence twice in the last four days, I was forced to do it yet again.
You wouldn’t think that this innocent dog could cause so much grief.
For the past 8 months or so our dog has been breaking through the fence for some unknown reason. This is new behavior. a couple of weekends back we replaced the last section of fence that hadn’t already been replaced. Today, she broke through again.
Yep, that’s one of the boards she pulled off and broke.
I have yet to catch her in the act. I need to get the cameras set up.
Today Windows Live Messenger prompted me for an upgrade. I hadn’t done it in a while, so I thought it might be a good idea. I expected that Microsoft would include some sort of “free toolbar.” I was a little surprised by how they did it this time. You can see from the screenshot that there is this nify “Toolbar” check box.
When you select it right side of the installation dialog changes to provide “details” as to what it is all about.
Really, reasonably innocuous. However, if you notice in the “Installed with this program” list entries for the Microsoft Sync Framework Runtime and the Microsoft Sync Framework Services. What exactly are these things and why does a browser toolbar need them? Checking out Microsoft, doesn’t really reveal much about what these services do and why they need to be associated with a browser toolbar (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/sync/bb887625.aspx#).
I think this time I’m going to go ahead and allow the toolbar to be installed.
Yep, that’s right. My wife was at work at a credit union today when some assmunch decided that today would be a good day to rob the branch. They didn’t catch him right away. He’s still running around enjoying the fruits of his illegal labors.
Fortunately everyone stayed calm and no one got hurt.
Merry Christmas — right.
