Welcome to the Realm™ - Version 5.0...
________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________





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.

For all you solid-state drive users out there, pay attention to this article from Lifehacker.com.

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.

This blog is best viewed with your eyes. 
It helps, though, if you have Microsoft Internet Explorer  set about 1024x768 1280x1024 with your Favorites window activated on the left deactivated.  (At least until I can get a better handle on how WordPress works.)

(KORRIOTH:  Oh, great.  More wormholes.)

Mozilla Firefox doesn't do too badly, either; in fact, it's His Rudeness' browser of choice.
You can  use Nutscrape,  if you so desire - but why in blazes would you want to use a browser from a company that had to hide behind Janet El Reño's skirt to be successful?

And don't even  get me started on Opera or Chrome.  I'm not about  to trust any browser that won't let me change its color scheme.
