I'm having to watch "Pitch Perfect". I'd never heard of it before tonight. The youngest boy asked if that's what college is like. I said no, this doesn't seem to be like anything on earth.

I was very impressed by the singing ability, but the movie was just weird. Several funny lines, though.

My wife wanted a laptop to run her scrapbooking software. She's not one to install a bunch of random crap, so I figured that I could keep it fairly secure. Unfortunately it arrived while I was taking a nap. She logged in, searched for "Google chrome download" in IE, and clicked the first result. Two hours later, I'm over at an IT expert friend's house and still getting this. I'm starting to think we'll have to nuke it from orbit. Gosh, I hate Windows.

My friend's only solution to this problem: burn it to the ground.

What? Someone on teh internets with a brain? What sorcery is this?
Is there absolutely nothing left in this country that we can take on as a nation without someone heading for the nearest cable TV news studio or on-line publication to lay the blame for our latest problem on the President, the government, racism or some other convenient entity? Yes, we know [...]

Heelys with motors! Comes with a 5-gallon bucket of iodine for the inevitable road rash.
Here's the first thing I learned when riding a pair of RocketSkates: 12 mph might seem slow, but strap a pair of motorized roller skates to your feet and that speed becomes instantly terrifying.

If you don't live in northern California, I hope you still exist. The Middle East could have erupted into a giant fireball and aliens might be landing on the White House lawn, but you'd never know it here because IT'S RAINING! A LOT!! EVERYBODY PANIC!!!

That's all that's on any TV news this morning: Reporters standing in the rain, telling us it's raining, showing video of puddles and storm drains and people driving in puddles, and storm drains backing up, and businesses located ten feet from a creek putting out sandbags.

Yes, it's a good bit larger storm than average, but come on. We've seen rain, we know what it means, we know California isn't well-equipped to handle it because the amount varies so wildly. Is there nothing else happening anywhere else in the world that's even mildly newsworthy? No? 

Sigh.

There's only one Windows computer in our house - the kids use it to play games. About every six months I have to completely erase everything on it and reinstall from scratch. This time I let it go a little too long - none of the browsers would go to URLs that I entered manually, but instead redirected to some CNET-like "download" page no matter what URL I wanted. And the only way I could get it to boot from the CD was to reflash the BIOS. No doubt there's some virus still hidden somewhere. Yet this is Windows 8 with all the built-in firewall, security, and autoupdates enabled.

The good news is that most of the games they play are on Steam. Perhaps next time I'll just put Linux on it.

I had the same experience; I think the Mawarebytes removed the virus while Norton and McAfee could not.  It was a very tricky virus to remove.  I cannot even go to google.com; it kept redirecting me to other "search" engine.  It all started by a fake and innocent looking "Adobe Player" update message with a link, which my son accidentally hit.
