Wounds that never seem to heal...

Current Music: Everywhere - Yellowcard

Reason Why:
"I think about how, it might have been"
"Your gone, and I'm still there"
"I will, head out alone, hope for the best, hang my head down as we say our goodbyes. Tell the world what they want to hear, I've got nothing left to loose my dear. So I'm up for the little white lies, for you and I"
"I'm gone, but your still there"
"I'm gone, but your still there"
"Buy a magizine searching for your face, coast to coast wherever I find my place"
"I will, head out alone, hope for the best, pat ourselfs on the back and say we tried. If one of us makes it big, we can spill our regrets, and talk about how the love will never die"
"But you and I, your the reason why"
"I'm gone, but your still there"
"I'm gone, but your still there"

November WinFX and Windows Vista 5231

So, I really shouldn't have been able to do this:

I was installing the newest (5231) build of Vista, and then the RTM of Visual Studio .NET

My next focus was ensureing that I could develop WinFX applications on the platform.

NOTE: It is confirmed that "Avalon" Runtime components are failing when on this build. I am unsure as to the other parts of WinFX, but the developement system for "Avalon" is working correctly.

When I went to install WinFX runtime, it errors out, and with a error in the log file like "Windows 'Avalon' MSI failed with error code 0x0000000".

I think to myself... well, what went wrong?

So, leaving the installer open as to keep the temp files ... and using the path of the log file to find them... I begin to browse, I opened the folder, and see the common "WCU" directory (thats Windows Component Update). Behold!!! I see WWF, WCF, WPF, dotNetFramework and WinFX directories!!! HORAY.

Opening the offecnding installer (Avalon, WPF) and running the MSI installer yields a 'Avalon' installer, so I install. Halfway through, I get an error about how key so-and-so could not be modified. Next step, regedit

I browse to the offending key, and open the permission entries. Its owned by SID-xxxxxx-xx-xxxx (Unknown User)... odd, and SYSTEM and Adminstrators have read only access. I reset owner to administrators group, removed the unknown user, and granted SYSTEM and Administrators write access. Alt-Tab to the installer and press 'Retry', goes off without a hitch! Then the WinFX installer goes fine, No problems were had with the SDK or Visual Studio tools though!

Why Homosexuals Shouldn't Marry

1. Homosexuality is not natural. Real Americans always reject unnatural things like eyeglasses, polyester, and air conditioning.

2. Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay, in the same way that hanging around tall people will make you tall.

3. Legalizing gay marriage will open the door to all kinds of crazy behavior. People may even wish to marry their dogs because they can legally sign the marriage documents.

4. Heterosexual marriage has been around a long time and hasn't changed at all; women are still property, blacks still can't marry whites, and divorce is still illegal.

5. Straight marriage will be less meaningful if homosexual marriage were
allowed; the sanctity of Brittany Spears' 55-hour just-for-fun marriage would be destroyed.

6. Heterosexual marriages are valid because they produce children. Homosexual couples, infertile couples, and old people shouldn't be allowed to marry because our orphanages aren't full yet, and the world needs more children.

7. Obviously gay parents will raise gay children, since straight parents only raise straight children.

8. Gay marriage is not supported by religion. In a theocracy like ours, the values of one religion are imposed on the entire country. That's why we have only one religion in America.

9. Children can never succeed without a male and a female role model at home. That's why we as a society expressly forbid single parents to raise children.

10. Gay marriage will change the foundation of society; we could never adapt to new social norms. Just like we haven't adapted to cars, the service-sector economy, or longer life spans.

Subaru is running three different ads with homosexual coupples. The ads are general targets with the male+male, and female+female couples driving

Go Subaru!
