Out of the Blue

I was starting to suffer from some performance issues on my desktop PC that were starting to grow irritating. Noting a lot of disc thrashing, it occurred to me that I may have been a little behind in my hard drive maintenance. Sure enough, the drive was pretty darned full, and just as surely, clearing some space made all the difference in the world. On the one hand, it's always fun to contemplate the upgrades that would come with deciding to get a new machine, but on the other hand, it's nice when problems can be solved so simply.

OMG - - Hostess, the parent company of Twinkies, Ding Dongs, etc. just bit the dust.

Shall we all pause for a moment of silence ....

Well, it isn't the first time, nor will it be the last time, that the Hostess products undergo an ownership change.
The products, though, will neither change nor disappear.
The pension of the retired employees, however, has certainly bit the dust.
Music for the discerning:
