Happy Dead Bird Day (Canadians)

by bozeman / October 5, 2006 3:27 AM PDT

I'm outta here today gang, off to spend Canadian Thanksgiving with the girlfriend's family down in Lindsay (think near Toronto, everything in Southern Ontario is Toronto to us Northerners).

I've been bad about keeping up with Net/Media casts and I have about 20 hours worth which will do me for a chunk of the trip. I don't know if I have the infamous 406 Edit, but we'll see. So we'll see what happens when you go 20+ hours of driving with a passed out GF (she sleeps anywhere) listening to Lost, RealDeal, Leo and twits and everything else. I'll be a changed man!

Anyways, just wanted to say...

Happy Dead Bird Day to my fellow Canucks, time to get outdoors for those fall colour photo shots!

One more hour of thanksgiving gluttony to go! What can I eat now?

Problem with travelling is that everywhere you stop, people want to feed you, ugh, I'm stuffed, slowly dying off here. Too much turkey! love the stuffing, but can't think of food till I drop those extra pounds.

I never even got all the net/mediacasts done because the GF didn't pass out on the way back, so decided I needed to get caught up on Jordan's books again and this time, not reading them, listening.

Books, so fat, so little time.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
