I've been renting a house near campus for years and debating buying a place. With my recent nuptials having happened I've decided to take yet another plunge with the new wife and buy a house. Since I haven't been living in the proposed St. George area I really haven't cared for the topic other tha...

| Movie/TV Board|| Falling Skies - The Season Finale Rant (spoilers) - Bard on 9/4/14 at 12:09 pm|
The series isn't bad, hell sometimes it's pretty damned good, but there are so many moments where they go formulaic while still trying to take itself seriously and be "edgy" and "unpredictable" that I feel like I am watching a schizophrenic. The season finale exemplified this.

Over the years I have been in IT I have yet to cease to be amazed (and a bit chagrined) at how rarely "IT professionals" will back up a customer's data.

| Political Talk|| A Glimmer of Hope - Bard on 8/19/14 at 9:22 am|
Last night as I watched the protests, I was impressed by the line of community leaders moving between the crowd and the cops. I heartened to see the group stop one guy cold as he tried to charge the line to get to the cops, and they talked the guy down.
What really caught my attention was the gu...

My first gripe: why does WinPE need anything more than just a generic driver for a NIC? It's good enough to PXE boot with, it's good enough to load the .WIM files... why the hell does MS demand specific drivers for this?
Second gripe: Why the bleeding hell does Dell release new systems that ne...
