While at Work

Well, I’m at work, and I just finished testing the new Microsoft patches that were released today with out machines.  Thankfully, once again, there doesn’t seem to be any problems with the patches affecting our machines (knock on wood).  However, while I’ve tested the new patches on 3 different machines in VMWare (and installed all the software required for testing via GPO), I’ve been installing windows XP on a Virtual PC 2004 session.  Needless to say, I’m working on 3.5 hours, and the basic install of XP still hasn’t completed.  I can’t imagine how long it would take to do basic tasks inside of Virtual PC.  This is just rediculous.  Maybe it’s just the installation that takes forever.  However, wasting 3+ hours on a simple install is crazy.  Good thing I decided to use VMWare after I started install xp on the Virtual PC session, otherwise, I’d be here forever.

In other news, I really want to get a saltwater fishtank now.  Hopefully Colleen will run by the bookstore today and grab a couple of books I want.  Then I’ll think about starting the tank.  I really want a reef tank, but I’ll start with fish, and after I get (more than) comfortable with that, I’ll move on to reef life.

*** Currently Listening To: Cake – Prolonging the Magic It’s just another classic Cake album.  It’s fun to listen to, but even if you just set it as background music, it’s not loud or obnoxious or anything.  Good stuff.
