Preparing the sacrifices...
Well, after having seen one too many NINJA SCANNING X10 pop-up's from some strange and as-of-yet unidentified ad-ware, I am embarking on the (seemingly) monthly tribal ritual. I can almost smell the smoke as I copy everything over to my mirrored RAID volume for posterity.
I am contemplating the installation of Slackware 9, or Mandrake 9.1 also… I have a stripped 160gb volume on my other RAID channel, and I never seem to use more than 30 gigs or so (that’s counting the MS Transfer Manager directory from MSDN that always seems full of gig’s & gig’s of something…).
Of course this all stems from trying to fix the %@*% debugging problems I’m having with VS.NET 2002 & 2003, which somehow caused the IIS service to lock itself in the upright & closed position.
Also, was anyone else aware that the (?maybe?) final build of the .NET Framework 1.1 is sitting on the Outlook 2003 w/ Business Contact Manager Beta 2 CD? (1.1.4322.0).
Maybe that was my problem…
There comes a point where “cutting edge” will end up leaving you bleeding.
