My Mom is cute

This is how she ended an email she sent last night:

How do you feel about the Blu thing?

She has some little tidbit of tech news and decides to bounce it off me. So cute.

After the aforementioned upgrade, I was going to install Azureus, but instead decided to try uTorrent. I have to say, it's pretty slick. Super light and fast, and the UI is very familiar-feeling for an Azureus convert. But the best part is that it doesn't have any of that Vuze content crap that I don't want. Just a lightweight BitTorrent client—you know, like Azureus used to be.

I had a little down time this morning as I upgraded from Server 2008 RC0 to RTM. The upgrade blue-screened, so I ended up wiping the boot partition and reinstalling from scratch. A little more time consuming, unfortunately.

I heart Wikipedia

I looked up an address on Google Maps and noticed that the bridge over the River at Wabash was under construction, so I wikipedia'd the bridge's name, Irv Kupcinet Bridge. The first result: Perfect Strangers (TV series). In that article, I learned that the opening shot is of them going under the bridge in question. I also learned that Family Matters was actually a spinoff from Perfect Strangers: the mom, Harriette Winslow, worked in the elevator. Wow. Who knew?

Now if only I could find out about that bridge being under construction. :)

Ford + Sync + iPhone

Saw a commercial on TV: buy an '08 Ford, get a free upgrade to Sync, and get a free iPhone. Microsoft and Apple, together at last! Thanks, Ford!
