So I brought a new hard drive for my XP computer, Plugged it all in and everything was going good until about ten minutes into the file transfer explorer locks up. I reboot the computer but it just doesn’t seem to want to work right, then it won’t boot at all except in safe mode. This leads me to believe that a driver has been corrupted. So since I’m running XP (and looking for an excuse to upgrade my computer) I decide its not worth it to reinstall XP and run down to the store to by Windows 7 and a new ASUS motherboard, AMD Athlon II X3 425 2700 Mhz processer, 4 gigs of ram, Nvidia 9500GT 1 gig video card (that I plan to upgrade latter), and a new power supply. I get everything home and start pulling out the old guts when I see that the whole problem was a loose ground wire to my new hard drive, I could have saved 600 bucks! No biggie I wanted to do this anyway. I put in all the new stuff, turn it on and begin to restore my backups and downloading NortonsAV from Comcast (its free for Comcast customers) when I lose my connection. I was behind but had paid most of my bill just a week ago, so I guessed that it wasn’t enough to keep them from cutting me off, and after doing the unplug,wait, plugin the router and modem/reset the modem thing a few times I decide just to wait until payday to have them turn me back on. When I pay my bill the guy at the counter says I did not get cut off, (I kinda thought this would happen) So when I get home I call customer support, tell them what I did and he ask if I reset the router (why would I, the network was working fine, it was just the internet that was out) Well that was it, I reset the router and I’m back… Long story short… (too late) never assume, it can cost you cost time and money. Not that I’m complaining, after all I got a fast new computer out of the deal and I’m ready for some of those new computer games I’ve been wanting to buy (command and conquer 4) (CitiesXL 2011) I just need the money…
Oh, and Merry Christmas, I got a new computer, what did you get :)

5 anti-Nuke Activist who 2 years ago cut thru 3 fences around the Bangor Sub base (Home of our Trident Fleet) were convicted today on all counts
A federal jury in Tacoma has convicted five anti-war activists who cut fences at Naval Base Kitsap-Bangor in November 2009 to protest Trident submarine nuclear weapons.
The U.S. attorney's office said the five were convicted Monday on all counts of conspiracy, trespass and destruction of government property.
I remember when they did this thing the local lefties were banking on the fact that they were senior citizens to protect them from consequences.
I’ll update with leftie reaction, if I find any…

Here is just another in a long line of environmental schizophrenia.
We have wind power in Texas they want to put up power lines to get that power where it can be used and sold, but because those line must cross a scenic canyon the environmentalist protested and had the line rerouted thru… a nature preserve.
