Remember my chagrin, Denizens, when my Arlington Heights Yellow Jackets blew a 25-point lead last year against Saginaw Boswell?
And the final score from the “hah skrewl” (a little Rush lingo, there) basketball playoffs at Burleson High School:
Arlington Heights 85, Saginaw Boswell 27
No big-time comeback this time, was there, Pioneers?
For the Uninitiated, many of Heights’ skill players in football (e.g. Marquis Jackson) play hoops, as well.
Gee, y’think maybe those guys were a little pissed at Boswell? I mean, I don’t necessarily wanna say “revenge”, but…

And no sooner do I get the site running on WP 3.0.5 than WordPress comes out with version 3.1.
General? This is why I don’t like updating.

Darth, you’ll want to pay attention to this cause I know the Titanic has a few of these.
Researchers at UC San Diego found that the normal methods we use to securely wipe magnetic drives aren’t as useful on solid-state drives. After testing twelve SSDs, they found that only four were securely erased with whole-drive erasure methods. Trying to securely wipe a single file was even less successful, and more often than not a good portion of the file was recoverable.
Hmmm, better make sure the Department of Archives adds this information to their SOPs. Wouldn’t want the dumpster divers to get any critical information from our used SSDs.
And while you’re perusing the site, you’ll also find this article that confirms that Microsoft has released Service Pack 1 for Windows 7. Guess the intertubes are going to be running a littler slower today.
