    <sigh> I wish American Idol would let you vote to boot people instead of keep them. Then Sanjaya would have been sent home a while ago. That's why 13 year olds shouldn't have cell phones. But I digress. Anyway, here's what's been going on with Microsoft in the last 48 hours... Second Life has traced...

    I'm not even gonna try to play catchup on this one. Extended Daylight Savings Time came and went . There seemed to be a lot of people having issues with the numerous patches, but that was before the switchover. It didn't end up being the Y2K07 that most people made it out to be. Although I did hear that...

    Today's "Daily" is the "Oh No You Didn't!" edition. It was a strange day in Microsoft-land. REALLY strange.
