This is pretty funny

sala's WinXP SP2 Terminal Server Patch

i used this method to allow me to login via remote desktop while someone else was logged in locally. this hack was of course quashed by a recent microsoft update.

i used the system restore feature of win xp to go back to when it was working.

now if anyone out there knows how to keep this patch working AFTER a microsoft update, please leave a comment and let me know.

how to keep a dog occupied

bowie's been munching on that big knuckle (from some mysteriously large creature unbeknownst to me) for over a week. this is probably cheaper (and with less side effects) than doggie prosac.

buy in bulk?

$3.59 in bulk isn't THAT cheap.

should i pay five bucks for a account? 
the best course of action would be to spend another $110 on a notebook arm from ergotron. that way i would be able to use the mbp on a daily basis. idealy i woud want the 20.1 inch widescreen dell lcd. that can wait i suppose. but then what do i do with the 17 inch lcd?

i purchased an lcd arm at office depot yesterday.

what a great idea; why hadn't i thought of this earlier.

it saves space on the desk and it allows for more confortable viewing and ease of use with my keyboard tray that came with my computer desk.

Ergotron website

  • buy 20 inch lcd

plan for work:

  • buy 20 inch lcd

  • buy ergotron dual arm [one for lcd and one for the notebook]
