Same As It Ever Was

Windows_8.1_-_Parallels_Desktop
I upgraded to Parallels 9.0 yesterday when it was announced and have been starting up each of my virtual machines to allow the newest version of Parallels Tools to install in them. Windows 7 and XP both upgraded fine, as did my CentOS linux VM… unfortunately my Windows 8.1 image wouldn’t start with the error above: “PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA”. Okay — I guess I will search the internet for a clue about exactly what that means.

Yes, Microsoft’s famous “blue screen of death” is no longer a darker blue, it’s now sky blue with the classy (and very business-like) emoticon for a frown. Reminds me of the “Sad Mac” icon from a couple of decades ago:

Look what I found!

At the shop this morning for an oil change and I see that AT&T switched on some LTE here in Denver. It appears they turned it on city-wide today as I have it at my house and other locations I randomly checked around Denver. Neat!

Daily Monkey (and Conan, too)


Looks like Conan’s back from vacation — on Twitter. He’s starting out with style by uploading an icon featuring a chimp.

A now for something a tiny bit different…

Done.  Finished.  Completely fed up with Drupal, or at least the version I had available.  I upgraded to WordPress and love it so far.
Going to see if I can dump the Drupal database and load those old blog entries into WP.  In the meantime, all of the old stuff is still available at http://www.bradpatterson.com/blog/ for your viewing pleasure.
