Vista Launch Cookies

This weekend I took a much needed break from work activities, and amongst other things
setup the Christmas tree and made cookies. Not just any old cookies however, along
with the snowmen, Christmas trees and other holiday favorites, I made special Windows
Vista launch cookies to enjoy later this week in celebration of Vista making it’s
official debut!

Well, official debut I guess if you don’t live in Canada where Edmonton Alberta hosted
their Vista launch last Thursday. (I wonder if there were any cookies?) Speaking
of Vista, it runs SOOOOO much better now that I have yanked the crappy ATI video
card out and put an nVidia card in. No more weird artifacts and other video issues
that the ever crashing ATI R300 drivers were causing.
