Healthcare Reform

Politics. I often try to stay away from it in writing, because it'll come back to haunt you later. However, at this point, what I hear and read about healthcare reform makes me sad. But first, let me set the stage:

Time Limiter turns off your computer at night!

There are parental controls in Windows Vista that can prevent a restricted account from using a computer at times you specify. However, if you let your kids have admin accounts (because they keep needing to run programs that need admin for compatibility reasons, say), then this won't work.

Engrish is funny

One of the Google Adsense advertisers that showed up on this site have a sign-up page with the following beautiful ad copy on it. You'd think that if you had the money to develop a computer game, and host servers, and pay for advertising, you could find someone to proof-read your Engrish for another $50...
