Yes, there really is a cheese called Stinking Bishop. And, of course, after the Wallace & Gromit movie, I (and probably many other W&G fans) would love to try it, even if it does “smell of old socks”, as the description states.
I picked up an iHome from Costco today. If all goes well, I should wake up to the sounds of John Coltrane tomorrow.
My desktop PC has been behaving for the last few days, without CounterSpy on it, so I decided to reinstall CounterSpy and see if the problems came back. Boy howdy, they sure did! I think I’m going to have to do without CounterSpy, until maybe the next major release. Something about 1.5 really doesn’t agree with my computer.
The best thing at DigitalLife was the giant Robosapien. There’s a good pic at Engadget.
A few days ago, I did a full spyware scan on my desktop PC with CounterSpy. It identifed a few registry entries as spyware and suggested quarantining them. I was pretty sure it was wrong about that, but I let it quarantine them anyway. I think that was a mistake. The machine has been acting a bit weird ever since, and it pretty much fell apart today. To make a long story (relatively) short, I went back to a system restore point before the CounterSpy changes, uninstalled CounterSpy, and reinstalled StarDock’s ObjectDock, which had gone quite wonky. I hope I’m back to normal now. The moral of this story is: Never trust CounterSpy.
