Windows XP Pro SP2 Hibernation Problems (Update)

I’ve mentioned before the nasty problem of having “too much” memory, when running a Windows XP laptop. Well, I finally gave up and pulled 512 MB out of mine, at least for the moment. I had resolved to install Linux, but realized there are, indeed, a few programs I still care about but hadn’t found work-arounds for. So, I didn’t have time to make the switch properly. Instead, I have a $209 paperweight with pretty little bits of circuitry on it.

I do wish Microsoft would get its act together…

Budget – Yes!

I just finished working through my in-school budget – it looks like it’s in pretty good shape. I didn’t try to work it out, until now, because there were just too many unknowns for my first month or so in a new (and more expensive than I am used to) city, especially with book purchases and move-in expenses. I’m very, very relieved to find that I’m right on the money (pun intended).
