The ways of Microsoft cannot be understood by mere mortals

Dylan headed home tonight. My kitchen is emptier without him.

We've been idly talking about getting a Win98 machine up to run some of the old games that don't run on XP. Specifically, Dungeon Keeper 2. After Mike spent two evenings setting up Win98 virtual machines, we still didn't have it running.

But while googling, I discovered it was listed as compatable with Vista. And Windows Server 2003.

So we installed it on the 2003 host - and with a bit of tweaking (must turn off DMA on the CD-ROM for the copy protection, and must be patched to 1.7), it runs. I slapped lots of imps and one chicken.

And, finally, today's picture. The cat doesn't look nearly as happy as the flowers do.

It has certainly led to much discussion on whether it was okay to slap the chicken, or if I should just stick to choking it.

Newt is adorable in that photo.

She's not a big fan of the camera. She will occasionally get up and leave the room when the camera comes out, or deliberately stop being cute if it would be too inconvenient to leave.

But she's getting better about it. :)
