Microsoft grabs more real estate

(October-06-07)

Like a lot of folks, one of my pastimes is hating Microsoft. For the past 8 or 10 years one of my favorite jokes (sorry, I've no idea to whom the attribution belongs) is the one about the 3 engineers stuck in a broken down car in the desert: Chemical engineer wonders about some contaminant in the fuel, the electrical engineer figures something is up with the wiring, and the Microsoft engineer ponders that even if it's 100 degrees outside, if they close all the windows and THEN restart everything will be just fine. It offers me a chuckle and makes for a slightly less frustrating experience when I'm required to restart my computer.
