well, as some of you know this last weekend I bit the bullet and reformatted this piece of crap (aka Gateway) that I'm on, and got rid of the 'standard screen-saver' that comes with Windows-ME :happydance
Yea, I'm almost embarrassed to say it but I was on ME, for about 2 1/2 years, and to be totally honest it was ok, well, as long as you reformatted every 6 months or so :fdup, and we won't even discuss all the crap that the aforementioned Gateway company puts on their machines...(can you tell I really don't care for their computers? :smile)
so now, I'm running Windows 2000 professional...(and before you say it yes I know how great XP is, we use it at work, however my poor little machine does NOT have the resources to run it :angry) it's a nice clean install, with none of the other bullshit, and I'm a very happy camper now...
well, till I get the time/money to build my own machine :thumb
In other news, we have snow! :freak3 allot of snow, and no I'm not nearly as thrilled about it as my children are...(go figure) I saw/heard something yesterday I've seen very few times in my life, thunder and lightning while it was snowing/sleeting!
Now mind you, I've lived in areas where snow was a very common thing (SLC for 4 years, KS for 2 and MO for 4) you get very used to it around there, but thats just weird when its snowing like hell and you hear thunder! I was at the grocery store when it started and one lady asked if that was a jet going overhead :lol
So all total we got around 8 inches, they closed school and 1/2 the town last night, and I made sure to check my caller id before I answered it, as it was my night off and no I can't come in to work thank you very much!! I have a mommy mobile (aka van) and they don't really like anything but the most pristine conditions, so I'm sitting my happy arse at home! :biggrin
I did just get a call from work that I answered, apparently everyone has called in, and I have 2 co-workers stuck at work, they can't leave (because of the snow) and are taking turns sleeping up there in the lobby...yea, I do feel sorry for them, but I don't have a vehicle to drive up there, and I'm not walking!!
I told him to look at the bright side, at least it was 2 of them and not just one...:rofl
Stay warm all!
