Nasty Weather day

Posted on/at 5:24 PM by Sparky


Well we got some snow then rain from this big storm on the east coast it really didn't amount to much except making a big mess. However my mom and dad are really getting some snow in upstate NY she just emailed me some pictures.The one down bellow is from Upstate NY. I almost wish I was up there so I might be able to go ski some.























This is from my weather station, now we have wind to deal with. it will dry things out fast but you can hardly stand up out there now. 38 mph gust's.

Is Windows a Virus

Posted on/at 7:57 PM by Sparky


Is Windows a Virus?

No, Windows is not a virus. Here's what viruses do:

1.They replicate quickly - okay, Windows does that.

2.Viruses use up valuable system resources, slowing down the system as they do so - okay, Windows does that.

3.Viruses will, from time to time, trash your hard disk - okay, Windows does that too.

4.Viruses are usually carried, unknown to the user, along with valuable programs and systems. - Sigh.. Windows does that, too.

5.Viruses will occasionally make the user suspect their system is too slow (see 2) and the user will buy new hardware. - Yup, Windows does that, too.

Until now it seems Windows is a virus but there are fundamental differences: Viruses are well supported by their authors, are running on most systems, their program code is fast, compact and efficient and they tend to become more sophisticated as they mature.

So Windows is not a virus.

It's a bug.

Well this is why I use LINUX.

Glad I Am AN Electrician

Posted on/at 2:33 PM by Sparky


This weekend started out with a trip to home depot, (my wife always has an ulterior motive) anyhow it has turned me from electrician to plumber, carpenter or plain general handyman. I sort feel like Schneider on One Day AT a Time.
I can say I am glad I did not choose plumbing as a job after repairing the toilet in our main bath. It is pretty simple to fix its just the thought of what exactly a toilet is especially this time of year when you have sick kids. Makes me wish I went to college more when I was younger. next time she can call a plumber. Hey if there is any plumbers reading this YOU DON'T GET PAID ENOUGH, ok enough of that I am going to take a shower with some bleach.
