"To continue receiving security updates for Windows, make sure that you're running Windows XP with Service Pack 3 (SP3). The support for Windows XP with Service Pack 3 ends April 8, 2014. If you’re running Windows XP with Service Pack 3 (SP3) after support ends, to ensure that you will receive all important security updates for Windows, you need to upgrade to a later version, such as Windows 8."

The better to receive security threats aimed at later versions of Windows, I assume.

If I were at all a geek, I'd go to Ubuntu, but we had it at work (installed for casual use by a geek parent) and no one knew how it worked. Eventually it crashed completely.

Luddite to the end

The reason I won't read tumblr isn't just that it crashes Firefox and then my whole computer. It's that even in IE the damnable tumblr bot shows up and demands I follow tumblr pages. And unless the resolution is 1280 by whatever silly number ie unreadably small, the damnable tumblr bot eats half the text and won't let you close the box.

Of course, if you do click follow, IE can't connect to the tumblr WP.
