||And so the fun begins
Posted on July 23rd, 2008
|My day was spent pondering over changes to Thingy. Fortunately I've gotten in the habit of doing little proof of concept tests before committing to anything; when I finally did the tests NONE of the planned changes worked. Another day's thinking down the drain.
The big news of the day is that dad's new computer arrived. It's a refurbished HP laptop that runs Vista. If that didn't make your hair stand on end, allow me to elaborate. Dad *hates* Hewlett Packard and their products. This is largely due to bad experiences that have gone down in legend; in one case the exchange with support contained so much vitriol that it made one of the cats throw up. Then there's Vista. It's well, Vista. The people in the building across the way will hear the swearing.

Slips of the tongue are priceless when they're on air.
