Time Out.

Not much to talk about today. I spent most of last night trying to get my Windows 7 beta to upgrade to a retail build. I was, in the end, unsuccessful (it gave me an error message stating that I could not upgrade a windows 64 install to a windows 32, and I couldn't do a 32 to a 64) so I ended up doing a fresh install. Now I need to re-download all my steam games and hope the Street Fighter crack to open up all the characters still works. But hey, you have to love that new OS smell.

What was left of the night was spent in a codeine induced haze watching old Cosmos episodes on Netflix. I think Carl Sagan would approve. The opening credits, specifically the music, took me back to my childhood. Cosmos is probably to blame for most of my present day nerdiness. It instilled a sense of fascination with stuff in space that I never really lost. The series, apart from the special effects and Sagan's hair, has aged pretty well. It isn't really about facts and figures, anyway. It is about humanities place in the universe and what we are going to do with it.

Pretty heavy stuff, but better than playing Saw, even it does add to my billions and billions of gamerpoints.

Behold, the smartest pothead ever.
