Comment Anecdotal evidence (Score 1) 231

I've been running my company on MSE/FEP/Defender for the past 6 years with zero headaches caused by the anti-virus software itself and an infection rate of maybe 5 or 6 per year across 200 PC and laptops. Users have local admin rights. Perimeter IDS catches some things that get through.

It seems to work better than any other anti-virus I've used and I hate them all. It's certainly the least annoying.

... that they release this about two weeks after I'd given up and ported my GV # away. I had put up with years of MMS/SMS frustration. They must have changed their default SMS app three or four times. All my contacts had two #s for me despite me trying to do everything I possibly could to prevent that. Porting to T-mobile was such a nightmare experience (5 days, 3 hours on the phone, 2 visits to store (avoid the stores)) that I'm hesitant to port it back.

Guess I'll just get a new GV # and see if it is really going to be worth it. Can't say I really trust Google not to fuck it up (or change it often enough to be irritating) again.

Comment small platform ? (Score 1) 331

A 60" flat screen from 10 feet away is not that small.. and they are relatively cheap. I've got a 100" projection screen in the basement that only runs 720p but still looks pretty damn good. The popcorn is way cheaper.

I rarely go to the theater any more and when I do I tend to go empty ones.... matinees or movies that have been out for a while. When I saw The BFG in 3D a few weeks ago we were the only people in the theater. As for 3D filling up theaters, IMO, 3D is quickly forgotten after the first 10 minutes. Its fun but it's not required.
