Rumble rumble rumble...

So I watched Obama the other night and saw the rebuttal as well. After what happened at Mt. St. Helens, how big a vacation spot Hawaii is, Super volcanoes (*Waves at Yellowstone*), and knowing how volcanoes have wiped out places in the past, I figure I'd submit a little neat thing I found on the USGS site.

Volcano Hazards Program is pretty slick. It uses Google Maps to show locations of volcanoes and has a neat little chart showing which ones are rumbling along.

I'm happy when politicians point out wasteful spending, I'm even more happier when they do something about it. Still some things when mentioned should be elaborated more on as to why it's wasteful. Especially when said things are used to help save lives and educate people.

So ends my rant for the day.

You know it's going to be a good day when...

You walk in to work and sit down at your computer and you notice the little anti-virus icon is different from yesterday. Well on my campus we use a product called LanDesk to push software out to users. All well and good and apparently they switched anti-virus packages last night.

Now here's the problem, I right click on my recycle bin to empty it and suddenly the Symantec Anti-virus installer pops up instead of the recycle bin menu. Apparently from what I read out on Symantec's site their uninstaller is broken and from the looks of things on my computer, leaving left-overs when it should be cleaning up.

Right now I'm having a blast uninstalling Landesk AV (Because it broke while trying to remove Symantec) and get ready for a 10am meeting. FUN!

Update: I killed it! WITH FIRE!!! My PC is fixed now.
