2012 brings new things to discover as well as uncertainty about the future. It also brings more of that 2012 doomsday BS that has been running rampant the past few years, despite common sense and scientists actually proving that the predicted Mayan doomsday will not happen! But that still doesn't stop idiots like Discovery Channel, History Channel, Patrick Geryl and other morons from continuing to shove their doomsday shows and books down our throats!

Since the world will end in 356 days from now (we are in a leap year, so we have the 29th of February), I've decided to have my own fun with this "phenomenon". Don't worry, I'm not going to talk about how the earth will suddenly reverse its magnetic fields or anything like that. I lack the intelligence to make sense of that stuff.

The reason for this title if I'm not going to talk about 2012? A certain 80's song that critics think is probably the worst song in history.

Devious Plans...

Posted September 26th, 2008 at 07:54 AM by Mario The World Champion

My little misadventures in the world of computers last week resulted in me buying a new computer on impluse.

It's a 2008 Compaq with the worst OS I have ever used! Windows Vista.

Sure, they say it's good, but I couldn't get online with any of the ISPs I use!! It managed to get itself installed, up and running, but when it went to search for the access numbers, Windows said something was wrong and it would get back to me with the problem, which it never did.

I know what the problem is... Vista sucks!!! I hate it so much now. Even my parents hate it!!

But, I got a buddy of mine who lives down the street who's got some skillz. After I got my old computer back, I gave the new one to him and told him, "Get rid of Vista and slap in XP!!!" So, I will be happy to have that system in place. XP is love.

So, now I got two computers. But I already have plans for my new one that doesn't have Vista in it anymore.

I want to slap in a card that has jacks that will allow a TV to be the monitor for the computer. This will help me out greatly when NaNoWriMo comes around. I don't have to go upstairs to use the computer. I can just fire up mine in my room, type whenever I get the urge and not disturb my parents.

So, I'm taking a bad situation and turning it into something good.

    I'll be surprised if XP works with the ISP on that computer and Vista doesn't. Really, Vista's been out long enough that major bugs have been worked out. It doesn't make sense to me that you wouldn't be able to connect to the internet with Vista but it'd work for XP.

    Hmmm, wow. Vista isn't that good. It seems maybe it can't recognize a few ISP's numbers...man I bet you were up all night trying to figure it out why it wasn't working. Oh well, Vista is out and XP is back in for you. So now you have two computers, yay! =D
