I received Windows XP SP3 through the Windows Update service yesterday.

Oh, on a totally unrelated subject, hundreds of planes were grounded in the USA due to a computer glitch.

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

I was stuck there because of weather a month ago. What a miserable place to be stuck-- you're in a hub of the airport where you plane is, but you can wander away or explore the rest of the huge place because there's no way of knowing if you can get back in time.

"The facility south of Atlanta had problems processing data, requiring that all flight-plan information be processed through a facility in Salt Lake City, Utah, overloading that facility."

pretty much everything that goes through SLC goes bad. just from personal experience......
