Every Day Above Ground Is A Good Day

The computer probing continued today, and while progress was made, not everything got resolved.  A friend's computer started having .NET issues a few days ago, giving an error upon booting, but also not letting any .NET updates being installed. I think we are closing in on resolving the issue, but it really makes you wonder. If Microsoft has a dedicated phone number for this particular issue and various tools to clean up installation issues, why hasn't this been addressed with a Windows update?

So far this week, not too many interesting games shipped to stores. There's been a bunch of DLCs, but apart from a straggler here or there, I think most of the holiday titles are in stores.

On a different note, we watched Bones, Castle, Fringe and The Sing-Off.
