Liquid!! Good to see you!!

Austin was just telling me the other day that I was going to have to start taking something called a "shower", said that the smell was running all of our members away, he specifically mentioned you.

See, Keith, those shower things are over rated and totally unnecessary.

Keith smells far worse than I. Trust me on that one.

Lots of pics, some of these are 2 blocks from my house. I got nothing, but some communities are completelly off the map now. Downtown Calgary had water to the 8th row up in the Saddledome stadium.

I saw Windows 8 on some computers in the store and I detest it. I am not a fan of the whole touchscreen style thing. It's annoying. And it sucks more when you don't have a touch screen. I prefer Windows 7. It is simpler and easier.

I went to run dxdiag on the Windows 8 machines as well as to just test a few things and they were slow as hell-- and they should not have been slow.

My laptop with Windows 7 is faster.

I'm one of the people who can be resistant to change in technology. I still have a radio/cd player/casette player from 1992. I had a 3.0 cu ft Montgomery Ward convection microwave for 22 years. I didn't get a cellphone until 2007 and it was a Razr V3xx. I didn't replace it until a couple of months ago. I waited for the S3 to drop in price.

I liked DOS, Windows NT, Windows 98, Windows XP and Windows 7. Detest Windows ME and Vista.

Sorry to hear about the flooding. It can really suck. I'm on high ground, but my road floods sometimes and I get stranded.
