For my southern Ontario meat-eating friends, come visit my quaint little city of Burlington on Labour Day weekend for Canada's largest ribfest. If you're not away at a cottage, this is the next best place you can be. Easy access from the Burlington GO station if that's your mode de transport, a quick shuttle ride from Mapleview Centre if you're driving, and even secure bike storage. 2 stages of music, lots for the kids to do, and free admission!
Agreed the Burlington Ribfest is so much better then the half-assed one in Kitchener. Though admittedly this year it was better then the past years. The only thing we can boast about is, that we aren't stuck drinking Canadian at ours.
My parents just got a call from "Microsoft", claiming their computer had a virus and they would help clean it up. The phone number they called from was 219-232-4400. They asked what version of Windows my parents were running, then read off a long code that matched one on my parents' computer, obviously to make the call sound more legitimate. That code is apparently the same on every computer running the same edition of Windows though.
Long story short, they wanted remote control access to my parents' computer. If you get a suspicious call like this, save some time and just hang up.
Just sent a feature suggestion to Google: Allow us to pick a colour for each circle we create, and display a circle of that colour next to each person's name in the stream so in the all-circles stream we can see at a glance what circle they belong to. It would even work if you put someone into multiple circles. What do you guys think?
