Back in the city. Failed miserably trying to install windows xp on my asus eee pc. Note: Whenever they say something is simple and/or straightforward, it isn't. Never. Not even once. It is axiomatic.
I think it's because the external cd rom drive I was using is old and never did work very well. I was getting error 8192 which usually refers to a bad burned copy of a cd. I am using a proper xp cd. I may get an external cd/dvd thing after work tomorrow.
Anyway, in an effort to calm down, I thought I'd share with you a video of Stan Lee, co-creator of Spider-Man, the Hulk, Fantastic Four, Iron Man, and hundreds of other characters. Stan is a character to say the least.
This video is of him reading Poe's The Raven. In honour of Hallowe'en, and in honour of restoring my nerves to an equilibrium I can live with, enjoy it.
Simple, my ass!
