Thursday's Straightaway

Sorry I haven't updated in a while....I've been pretty lazy, and there's really nothing to talk about. After all, its summer, what do you expect?

Band Camp started on Monday. It's pretty hot, painful (sunburns), and can be considered enjoyable when you know what your doing (which, for freshmen, is not very often).

I recently installed SP2 for XP. It works great on my systems with no conflicts with any apps (yet). It has a lot of new security features and some other cool stuff, so I recommend that you update today.

Like I said, there's not much to talk about, so I'll leave you with some "weird news" storis of the day:
