Introduction On July 14, 2012, I took 1st place in the Run What You Brung Dirt Track Racing Event at Siskiyou Motor Speedway in Yreka, CA. It was a great night of racing and the track was perfect. It should be worth noting that this is the first trophy (not just with racing…) I have ever received. It probably should also be noted (or ignored) that I, once again, drove this car home after putting the plates back on. Let The Mud Fly It was not as slick out there as last [Continue Reading]

Windows 8 Release Preview Service Configurations are now updated. This included the “Default” as well as “Safe” settings. Information in the table is likely to be adjusted with additional findings over the next several months. It will also be ran through after Windows 8 has been released. “Tweaked” and “Bare-bones” configurations are in the works, but it takes a bit more time to figure those settings out, so I will refrain from adding/updating those columns until after Windows 8 has been released. Information with “???” is being worked through and [Continue Reading]

Just to give everyone a few words on what I am working on with regards to Windows 8 Services: It is in progress. I have a lot to update behind the scenes with regards to transferring information from the old wiki format to WordPress with tons of “extra code” and HTML left over. This also is a good time to update the general format to remove the links (table of contents) to the information and instead replace them with tabs for each OS. It makes it cleaner looking as well as more consistent experience. [Continue Reading]
