You sure about that? It took Trey and a troop of snow monkeys about 7 hours to get one ******* USB-serial adapter to work on my Win 7 ma-cheen.
But overall, yeah, Win 7 is pretty decent... sure as hell beats the **** out of paying $3000 for a fancy MacBook Pro.
And to think... I had dreams and aspirations of going back to Apple... until I realized that I could buy a decent Miata (or three FB RX-7s, or an IROC Camaro, or a raggedy 5.0 Stang, or a nice used MP62 blower, etc etc etc) for the price of a fancy-pants MacBook. ****.
You've got one of the finest looking pooches I've ever seen. Sounds like he's squared away and knows WTF is up. My dog Molly knows what's up, but she clearly rules the roost. And I let her have her way - she's 10 now, and she's the baby, and that's that.
I've always wanted a Lab but I can't deal with long-legged dogs. Seriously. Molly's brother looks like a Pit-Lab mix - long-legged and manly and ****. He's a supremely intelligent ******, and extremely strong, but he can't swim to save his life. Yes, he's one of the best dogs I've ever been around, but goddammit he likes to get out and paint the town red. Molly, even though she's going blind, can swim like a ******* otter - and that's been proven in my parents' swimming pool... by accident... at night... bless her little heart.
If I could clone Molly, I would make 10 copies in a heartbeat... she's the sweetest animal ever imagined. Period.
One of these days I might get a kitteh... but I'm not real sure about that yet...

I just had that feeling today. . .that something was going to happen. . .
At first, another driver and I were forced onto the shoulder, before getting on the highway, by a girl staring at the phone on her lap. She rolled halfway into our lane. Then this jackass came along swerving in and out with very little sense of control of the car. When he wanted to swerve lanes, he'd swerve back and forth first...you can see a little of that in the video. Meth maybe?
