Woot: XT Fire Extinguisher – 2 Pack

Link: http://www.woot.com/Blog/ViewEntry.aspx?Id=8372

My latest Woot acquisition has arrived. On 2 for Tuesday last week, they featured these Fire Extinguishers. I got 2.

When I first moved into my condo there were no fire extinguishers on the property...though I had an old halon one, and later picked up an aerosol can like fire extinguisher.

Later with an impending visit by the fire marshal, the landlord came into all the units and put fire extinguishers under the kitchen sinks. I was leasing to own at the time.

Later I become owner, and he didn't ask for it back. But, nearing time for the yearly visit by the fire marshal he went around asking for all the fire extinguishers back so that they could be inspected. It never came back. Eventually a fire extinguisher was mounted to the wall by the stairs...one on each level. Guess that was sufficient.

Plus I still had mine.

But, I had been thinking of getting additional fire extinguishers just for the sake of convenience. Though buying fire extinguishers online is hard and it wasn't really something I wanted to walk 3 miles to and another 3 miles back to get. And, I didn't think it would be something I could do on impulse.

Microsoft is pulling the plug on Money

Its personal finance and small business software package.

The software will no longer be available to buy after 30 June and anyone who has bought MS Money needs to activate it before 31 January 2011.


My copy expires in March 2010. Hopefully Intuit will have a painless way for us to migrate to the Mac version :?:

Though there are other reasons to still run Windows at home....Money was always on the top of the list for reasons why I was hesitant to make the full leap to running something other than Windows as my main desktop system. I have been playing with some of the stuff that needs windows with XP installed in VirtualBox. Like while EncoreViewer will run in the VM, it can take up to 5 tries to successfully read the smartcard. While I've almost never had trouble reading the card into my circa 1993 Windows XP Desktop.

Wonder when I'll get serious about making the switch. I suppose one option would be to start new in 2010. But, there have been many times that I've searched all the way back to 1998 when I first started using Money.

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
