This week I'll see you in Las Vegas.

Feel free to contribute your own fun stuff to the blog. 

My brand new laptop died recently as a result of Microsoft Vista.  
Over the past 4 months it struggled with drivers, printers, and well, 
everything.  Whenever it went into vapor-lock, Lenovo (IBM) and I were 
able to resuscitate it.  One day it automagically downloaded a VGA 
driver from Microsoft and choked.  We thought it just needed another 
Heimlich maneuver but it wasn't working.  We panicked and considered, 
oh my gosh, re-imaging the hard drive!  The re-image didn't work.  
All we got was "BOOTMGR missing".  I don't think the computer wanted 
to go on with Vista.  The tech support dude and I tried and tried to 
instill a glimmer of hope but alas, it was in vain.  We came to the 
realization that a downgrade is the only viable option.  It turns out 
that Windows XP is Vista's biggest competitor.  

The reason why I'm sharing this with you is twofold:

1) During the several triages, I may have missed your email message.
2) Friends don't let friends install Vista. 
 
Have fun!
