What exactly was the point of me manually turning off my user account control so I would no longer get spammed with questions every time I tried to install software if your security system was just going to spam me with notifications that MY USER ACCOUNT CONTROLS HAVE BEEN TURNED OFF?
I have spent the last three hours trying to fix something and am ready to scream.

I will cut the first person to start crowing about the superiority of Apple. I have both an Apple and a Vista machine. They are good for different things.

Speaking of technology, this from Marc Ambinder made me laugh out loud:
I’ve been critical of the White House New Media office before, but I think they deserve kudos today for instigating and executing the President’s first online town hall meeting. (Macon Phillips, the new media director, and Jesse Lee, the online programs director, spent a long time putting this together.) One — the White House says that Obama wasn’t briefed about the questions in advance. Two — several questions weren’t softballs. Three — the White House web servers had enough bandwith to accomodate the demand. (To test them, I pulled it up simultaneously on several computers without a program.)
Yes, Marc, that sure was a rigorous stress test of the system you did there. Good thing the White House was pushing enough bandwidth to accommodate millions of citizens AND those three extra computers in your office. I hope the banking industry stress tests are a touch more rigorous- “To test the banks out, I had everyone in my family simultaneously withdraw twenty dollars from an atm, and things seemed ok!”
