Now You Could Strain Him Through A Sieve

by Rainier on Nov. 4, 2010 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT

Most of yesterday was spent re-installing Windows on my gaming machine. It had started freaking out a few days ago up to the point where I couldn't install any new games because they would always error out. After fiddling with it for a few hours, I decided to rough it and format the damn thing and start with a clean slate. Putting a fresh Windows install on a computer is the easy part, but re-installing all your programs, games, and updates with the need to reboot a hundred times — now that's the real chore.

Yesterday we got a new governor, and today, we got a new mayor. Out with the old, and in with the new. Our previous mayor gave himself a 100% raise, only to have to admit shortly afterward that he owned a bunch of money in back taxes and ran the city into the ground. Exemplary job there, buddy.
