RoadRunner is coming to my house. 6pm-ish. Hopefully, if I get off work early, I’ll be there for the install, or lack there of. Mainly because I’m not letting those people go within 10 feet of my computer with any sort of “software” that they purpose to be required. I’ve read the RR white sheet and FAQ about their software. It’s a crippled version of IE6 bundled with some adware. That just isn’t going to happen. I’m going to have the guy do everything upto and including turning on the modem. At that point I’ll give him the money for the install and ask for the server information so I can set up my own damn email.
Secondly, hockey is the greatest sport on earth. I’ve said this before but this pretty much proves it. It’s the Heritage Classic. Kind of like an all-time all-star game. Here is the roster for one of the games. Oilers vs Canadians. Wayne Gretzky and Mark Messier vs. Guy Lapointe and Guy Lafleur. Holy crap. If you don’t know who those last two are, I forgive you. As a Bruins fan I was educated in who to dislike. The Canadiens are the arch-rivals of my beloved B’s and so I know of the damage those two have inflicted. Oh, and did I mention the games are going to be played outdoors, old-school style, with old-school equipment. Yeah. Hockey rules.
Lastly, never get chinese food from Pearland TX. As my stomach can attest to, it is bad. Unpleasent and even upsetting (stomach wise). But the Crab Yummies were, well, yummy.
