Make the hurting stop!

While I use Macintosh for my daily computing platform (and love it), Windows pays the bills. And, as I’m sure we have all heard, this week has been an exciting week for Windows users. I worked 26 hours on Tuesday and Wednesday doing virus damage control. Today is day 3, and I am completely out of juice. I had planned on writing an elaborate entry about this, but, I just plain don’t have the energy for it.

Microsoft “Genuine Advantage” cracked in 24 Hours

I don’t usually use this as a real “blog” but I’m bored. I had my wisdom teeth removed, and I’m on Vicodin, so, stfu. Microsoft started forcing people to verify their Windows serial numbers this week before it’d let them download updates from the Windows Update site. 24 hours later, it’s cracked. I, for one, find this totally hilarious. 24 hours later, someone has found a one line javascript applet that disabled the check. Brilliant!
