Willing To Let An X-Box Control Your Car?

I saw a commercial the other day for cars that have the "SYNC" system installed in them.

Then the voiceover made the horrific statement that it was "Powered BY Microsoft!"

I don't know how much of your vehicle will be controlled by this system. But it scares me to think that a glorified X-Box runs my car.

Oh, Goody

So the Prez and Congress have come together to screw the American people again.

An economic package that will give me a check for $1200.00 (I'm married).

How much is this going to cost me in the long run?

My children, my grandchildren, even my great-grandchildren will be paying for this for a long, long time.

I Was Just Looking For The Opportunity

The wife and I have been planning on "re-doing" our living room. We had put it off to get the holidays behind us and since we are well into the New Year and all of the decorations are put away there is no excuse to delay any longer. But I am by nature a procrastinator. The Carr family crest reads "Late, but in ernest".

Sunday I had to go into the attic to clean the heating unit's filter. My attic area is not floored but I have travased from rafter to rafter with the nimbleness of a trapeze artist for 20 years. That record was shattered when I miss-stepped and put my foot through the ceiling of our living room.

I guess that was the push I needed.

Active Directory Sucks Ass!

I guess I'm an old school Netware Administrator, but Microsoft's Active Directory is just God awful.

Glad That's Over

The Holiday Season is officially over! Trips to see relatives, trips to the store, eating and of course, drinking are done for year 2007. On to 2008!


No matter who wins the caucuses in Iowa, the MSM will tell us stupid folks in America what it all means. We too dumb to understand it. They want a horse race and they will work feverishly to make it happen.
