Out of the Blue

Working on this update pushed it past midnight... I was going to sneak it in as part of Friday's news, but hey, here we are on Saturday, so why not just go with it?

I think I've tracked down a problem that has been making me crazy(er) lately, as cutting and pasting things on my Win2K machine would sometimes fail to work, and even worse, would occasionally crash whatever app I was pasting into. I peaked in my temp directory and found a pair of files there, and deleting them seemed to clear up the problem completely and immediately. I have no idea how that worked, but boy am I glad it did.

Play Time: Stupid MS PaperClip Game. Thanks Ant.
Links of the Day: Personal Computer Milestones.
Stories of the Day: Cheap Drivers Head Online.
A witch's guide to safe computing.
Wild Science: Gene variant linked to athletic performance.
Auction of the Day: CUSTOM LEGO minifigs BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER. Thanks Jean Bizek.
Follow-up: MDs to pay for unkindest cut.
Thanks Mike Martinez.

Hooray, Santiago, you win!

But I'm not eating pork rinds anymore. Sorry. Now I'm into a bag of Nutter Butters. Ooo yeah.

...and Unmaker, you made one teensy tiny mistake in your quote, but I don't think anyone's going to mistake it for something else. Then again, if anyone DOESN'T catch that reference...then you just don't know a good movie when you haven't seen it a million times.
