Google Buzz is Broken

If you are reading this in Buzz there is a high likelihood that the title of this blog has a & # 39 in it. Why, because lame-o programmer's have no idea how to process text and make it look right. This Ajax stuff - or whatever is used to do Buzz is yet another example of inadequate testing and just get it out there, however horrible and crappy it happens to be, mentality that is pervasive today.

Why is Vista so slow? I have a clue.....

While looking to see what could be slowing down my computer today I decided to look at the operation event viewer. (Click picture below to see full view)

Hey cool - 15 events in the past 4 seconds - heck that can't be slowing me down at all. Hmmm, let's see - something is slowing me down, perhaps I should try to open up a file and write about it, no wait that will make me even slower, in which case I shall have to open up a file and write about it, and so it goes ad infinitum until the machine screws itself into the ground and requires a power off reboot.

Alas - I shall never again have a machine capable of doing simple tasks simply.....
