The content of this blog is my personal opinion only. Although I am an employee - currently of Nvidia, in the past of other companies such as Iagination Technologies, MIPS, Intellectual Ventures, Intel, AMD, Motorola, and Gould - I reveal this only so that the reader may account for any possible bias I may have towards my employer's products. The statements I make here in no way represent my employer's position, nor am I authorized to speak on behalf of my employer. In fact, this posting may not even represent my personal opinion, since occasionally I play devil's advocate.

I should blog about that, but...

At happy hour with MH this afternoon [*] MH and I talked about something that I thought would make a good blog topic (at which MH groaned).

But, I forgot what it was.

Times like this I wished I had a lifestream camera sitting on my shoulder, recording everything.


[*]: going to "Happy Hour" is a new thing for me, only happening on days when (1) I am in town, (2) not busy doing other stuff, and (3) want to catch up with friends from Portland who I do not see the rest of the week when I am in Bellevue.

Turbotax 2009 requires admin

Taxes.  TurboTax DVD requires admin to read.  Worse, fails to install, and the recommended fix is to "Run As" admin with prejudice.  TurboTax blames .NET, but I think it is a TurboTax bug.

This is a security risk.  If security problems occur as a result of it, TurboTax should be liable.
