More Geekdom Contained

Alright, so today started like any usual day. Wake up late, but just in time for another lame conference call. Fire up the good old computer. And bam! Nada. Kaput.

It took me about two hours to fix a Windows Registry "HIVE" that had outgrown the legal limit of 16MB that it will load and was 37MB due to some software installs and downloads recently as well as some attempts to rip a DVD and condense it down to 320x240 iPod resolution and load it on the new iPod 30 GB Video that I just picked up.

But good news is that I am back online and have my machine working again. I thought at first I had a Virus or something from the e-mails about Paris and Nicole that I kept opening last night. I was so pissed. I just blog about asshats opening e-mails and spreading viruses and then my machine goes down. But no such luck. It was Bill Gates and his shoddy engineering again. I never seem to have these problems with my Linux machine. But then again RedHat has not come out with the RedBox 360 either, so maybe in their infinite evil, there actually is good inside Redmond.
