Why I Am Up So Late

Several hours were spent today piecing together shards of an operating system. In retrospect, it should have been reloaded from scratch; you just never know. Tons of data and apps to reinstall hence the reason for a lengthy effort. Also have a backup being monitored remotely.

About to replace several XP pro machines with Dell Vostros PCs running Window 7 Pro. Highly recommend the Vostros series. They used to be slanted towards business scenarios, but the versatility of hardware selection has broadened the market. Very efficient use of hardware and you can go to Dell's site to create a PC that matches your needs. Lotta' bang for the buck! This backup is taking FOREEEVVVEEERRR!

Heads up on Windows 7 Pro: Very slick operating system. Forget all the bad press and hype about it being another Vista Business reworking. Not even close! MUCH BETTER. Win7 Pro is much more akin to Win7 Ultimate with a few subtle differences that won't be important to most folks. Windows 7 rocks, period. Make sure your hardware can take the demand for resources. Forget the recommended 2 gigs of memory. If you don't have 4gigs of RAM stick with XP.

Working on posts about SwinTech Designs (see the links list), RAID arrays (SCSI, SATA, etc.), & current legislative action concerning embedding (NAZIs posing as Senators). This is all in the background. Still struggling with that build that has taken over my life. Thought about sitting down and crying yesterday...again. Didn't. Anybody know where I can find a job sweeping streets? Don't recommend being a greeter at Wal-Mart. Tried that, seriously I did.

Later. Be casual. I am frustrated enough for all of us, lol!
