Computer Problems

The internets are acting up (probably flooding in the series of tubes), and AVI is unable to get online at the moment. He'll be back up and running soon.

On a related note, I installed Windows 7 Release Candidate last night. It's amazing. Smooth as silk, plays games better, no driver issues at all. It's already better than XP or Vista at launch. Heartily recommended.

Beating XP and Vista is like beating Bob Dole at arm wrestling.

Too soon?

I installed the beta version on an old IBM T40 with 1.5 ghz processor and 1 gb ram. It worked surprisingly well, although I could not get the wireless driver to work. I couldn't believe how smooth it ran. Are you running it as a standalone OS or did you install it in a virtual machine?

I did standalone. I know I should have done virtual just in case, but what can I say? I'm lazy.

I hate to say anything nice about Ted Stevens, who made that "series of tubes" statement, but he actually was accurate in his statement. He was making an analogy about routers having things in queue, because they can't all go at once.

Not that he understands the internet all that well, but he got that one right.

I am also using windows 7 release candidate and it is really very nice.
