XP Error Messages.. (wink)

A loyal reader sent me this video showing Windows XP Error messages that has to be seen to be believed. I could not ’embed’ the video, so you must click here to see it.
Thank you, Dear Reader (you know who you are).

“Some things you just can’t predict. I thought I was through with contests, and now, ‘lo and behold!, I have a Grand Prize Contest, and I am pleased as punch to run it! Today’s Grand Prize retails for $200, and features software I have endorsed from Day One.”

A short while back now I wrote a popular series about hardware upgrading – specifically, about rebuilding my gaming rig into an Intel i7/X58 based machine to take advantage of the new technologies available to us consumers. (To see that series, click here.)

The other day I noticed a good price on an X58 motherboard on the “B stock” page at EVGA. EVGA is my company of choice for nVIDIA based graphics cards and mobo’s.
(X58 is already B-stock.. wow. I know “Moore’s Law“ tells us that tech is ‘growing’ at an exponential rate [evolving is a better word] but this is ridiculous. I think time needs to slow down…)

To see all the deals at EVGA (on slightly-older-than-cutting-edge gear) click here.

SUPERAntiSpyware is a program for combating spyware and Internet threats. Today’s Grand Prize retails for $200, and features software I have endorsed from Day One.”

    • Ranjan,
      I am conspicuously lacking in musical talent, and have always admired people with that creative gift.

      I should make it clear – for the record – though, it was only brought to my attention by a reader (who found it).
