Today also marks the day that my family pays DirecTV a pretty hefty sum of money, just to have one of my favorite Shows not be available to me, Fringe, that is outlined below in my previous post. DirecTV and Northwest Broadcasting are in a pissing match and took down my Local FOX channel KMVU channel 26. Granted, I am not a sports fan and really do not care if I see the Super Bowl or not, but after waiting weeks for Fringe to continue it’s most recent cliffhanger, I [Continue Reading]
Today marks the day that I turn 39. :O Happy B-Day BV! 🙂 In fine tradition, I updated my About BV page to keep it current. Fringe made the Top Eleven TV Shows on my list as well as Just Cause 2 and Starcraft 2 making the gaming lists. I also added a PC hardware section. I thank everyone for their support in advance and have a wonderful weekend!
I updated my World of Warcraft character stats to reflect that my Shaman, Warlock and Mage are capped at level 85, bringing the total to six characters at max level for me.

Windows 7 Service Pack 1 Service Configurations are now online. The Registry Files and Custom Registry Tools are also updated. I have not made it to the wiki yet, but will do so “soon”. If you are wondering where the Windows 7 Retail Configurations are, no worries, they are just archived.
Introduction Many people have asked for a “one-click” type of solution to Windows 7 Services. This page is my answer.

I updated my World of Warcraft character stats to reflect that my main priest is level 85.
Todays FFIV newsletter spam made me laugh. I played FF14 for about 2 hours after it was hot off the press. In its state, I cannot see how anyone can turn the game around to make it any better. Basic gameplay mechanics are wrong as well as the lack of a tutorial of any sort. Which ends up with you killing one rabbit, then make a shot at another and die… for hours. Screw that. I understand that FF14 “just came out” and it does not have the development time [Continue Reading]
