Dear Windows Update:
In the future, please do not change my device settings that prevent the device being able to wake the computer, to being able to wake my computer. At least, please don't do this without telling me you did.
There's nothing fun about the fresh panic that follows when your computer refuses to sleep or hibernate.
Thank you to the good folks at Vista Forums for the troubleshooting thread Vista Won't Sleep Properly.
Dear Windows Update:

@williamshatner Yes, Standard Orbit, Captain. And we're detecting signs of life on the surface.

From the Fred Rogers Company website:
"When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, "Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping." To this day, especially in times of "disaster," I remember my mother's words and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers – so many caring people in this world."

Check out the YouTube video of Trey Wingo, Mark Schlereth, and Tedy Bruschi from ESPN fit in as many “Princess Bride” references they could fit into one half-hour of television!
Back in 2008, I posted about an up and coming TV show created by two talented Torontonians.
As their 5th and final season wraps up, they're having an auction of items donated by Flashpoint cast an crew. If you loved the show and want to get your hands on a piece of the show's history, go on over to TV-eh?, where Diane has generously set up the auction for free.
Auction proceeds will benefit The Tema Conter Memorial trust.
Auction ends December 14th at 11:59:59 EST.
