I've known The Glitch Mob for a while, but a few weeks back someone posted them in the SOTW topic.
Now, weeks later, this song is my SOTW
For the past week I've started my day with their newest album Love Death Immortality.
Good start of the day
What the F? Can't people hold back their April fools jokes till April 1st anymore? Is it really SO important to be the first?
Anything that is unrelated to elephants is irrelephant Anonymous - The problem with quotes on the internet is that you can never tell if they're genuine Winston Churchill, 1944 - I'd just like a chance to prove that money can't make me happy. Me, all the time
My code signing certificate expires is less than a month, so it's time once again to jump through the hoops needed to convert the certificate into a .pfx to enable signing from multiple computers. One of the caveats I have learned through the years is that this operation must be done on a < Vista system since MS changed the way they store the keys internally. I'm now installing XP for the first time in 10 years as a VM to accommodate the task. It will be interesting to see how it handles the updates since it's now officially not supported.
If it's just for a single task or two why bother with the updates unless directly affected for the work required? If worried about attacks do you really need network? Just a common/shared folder will do to get info in/out.
Either way once done just save the VM image so next time can jump straight back into it.
It's not as the ms fanlemmings believe going to not work (or halt and catch fire) just because ms aren't supporting it - there's xp boxes out there in the real word that run literally for years without ever updating it's not that important. (Most system rescue disks use a xp base, they still work fine don't they.)
why bother with the updates unless directly affected for the work required?
Agreed...not really worried about it, just curious. The issue now is that Activation over the internet no longer works and I'm not about to call them. I have a snapshot with 30 days remaining for Activation. I'll do what I need to do before then, and promptly revert it for the next time I might need it...hopefully, this is the last time.
Does MS still offer an IE6 tester VM for the cursed souls who still have to support it? if so, that'd give you a presumably fully patched XP to fool with.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.
