So my only significant gripe with Windows 8 is its omission of Windows DVD Maker. I got the bright idea to use my old Windows 7 license in a Hyper-V virtual machine and get it that way, but guess what? The emulated video card isn’t good enough to allow Windows DVD Maker to launch. Anyone know how to emulate a decent video card in a Hyper-V VM?
Pope Francis! Woohoo! First New World pope ever, which is actually pretty cool. Did you know they can pick any name they want? Theoretically, we could have a Pope Lynyrd Skynyrd I?
There’s a golden pricing zone for storage products, like hard drives and SD cards. It’s typically not quite what you’d like, but the price is so good you can’t say no. For example, a 32GB SD card is $17-18 right now. It’s $50—on the low end—for a 64GB card. See what I mean? I bought three of the former, and spent half of what I would have for two of the latter, but I got three quarters of the space for it. See?
I could do myself a lot of good getting 10,000 steps in a day. Guess what? That takes a lot of time. I’m thinking about front-loading my daily routine with half of the steps and seeing if I can establish it as a habit. I’ll never get the quantity if I can’t cross a lot of them off before I really start the day.
Movie with the boys tonight. Thinking Wreck-It Ralph. Any thoughts on that one? Anything I should consider instead?
