Bug invasion

It's been pretty cold the past week or two, but today was quite warm, up in the 70's.  The bugs have absolutely exploded outside.  There's several dozen flies buzzing around on the porch, but it's the ladybugs that are the real problem.  There are several hundred ladybugs just on the porch.  There are clouds of them zipping around outside.  And they're somehow getting through the weatherstripping on the front door so there's a couple dozen ladybugs crawling around the walls and ceiling in the living room.  I don't particularly want to kill them, because ladybugs are a beneficial insect.  Hopefully the weather will take care of them naturally, it's supposed to be much cooler and rainy the next few days.

At least it's not mosquitoes.

Windows uber alles


I preordered a copy of Windows 7 from Amazon along with a couple Terabyte hard drives.  I'm going to pull the 1/2T drives I'm using currently with Vista and do a clean install.  That way if things don't work out I can just pop the old drives back in and things will be back to the way they were.
