XP Extension or Extinction?
I might as well put in my two cents on saving Windows XP from extinction. I’ve tinkered around with Vista a little bit and the interface is pretty cool as long as you have the hardware to run it. Overall it looks good and does have more, albeit annoying, security features. Minor gripes would include changing items in the control panel that have been the same for years.

Why Are You So Slow Comcast?
This past Saturday we noticed our internet connection was acting up a bit. We could get to Google and search but no result links would load.
