NFL Week #9 Final

Eeyore and I ended up tied at 10-5 this weekend. Quite nice, actually. That brings my year-to-date total up to 78-50 (.609) and Eeyore is 70-58 (.547). My fantasy team was doing well until Shaun Alexander blew up in the Sunday night game. Grr.

HP/Compaq Deal Falling Apart?

News.Com is reporting that the Hewlett family is opposing the merger of Hewlett-Packard and Compaq. The family doesn't have enough votes to single-handedly kill the deal, but they will have plenty of influence on a decision that has come under a lot of scrutiny. This merger didn't make sense to me from day one and it still doesn't. All it seems to accomplish is eliminating an awful lot of jobs. Thanks Ars Technica.

Don't Upgrade WinXP Home!

Microsoft has released this security bulletin indicating that data loss is likely to occur if you try to reinstall, repair, or upgrade WinXP Home. It seems this only applies if XP was preinstalled on the machine. I love the resolution step:
To resolve this problem, restore the missing data and program shortcuts from a backup.
Oh, gee, thanks.
