finally I feel liberated

Hiya all, :-)

Well, I had abandoned all updating of my Windows Install material. The reasons were many - no new Service Packs from Microsoft, the existing CDs were pretty stable, I was testing WinXP's SP2, I'd to spend 2 weeks supporting a client who had only recently decided to upgrade his Microsoft-based server infrastructure, and so on........

Well, I'm done with all that now, and the excitement of WinXP SP2 has died down as far as I'm concerned - its really funny that everybody (and the media) is poking holes at it only now after it got released. It was supposed to be tested for compatibility with your apps and network long ago - from December, and those who didn't do their homework will suffer during the SP2 roll-out now. Anyways, MS has done the best they could to balance features with security/stability. I'm now moving officially to XPSP2 - I dumped all apps which had a problem with it, and either upgraded or used a competing offering.

Its gonna take me 4 days to be done with a new build of my customized WinXP CD (win2k/2k3 are still exactly where they are, LOL) - and then, we go ahead onwards to code a game level. That's quite a "free-bird" thingy - not nearly as much pressure as before. Cool! Let's see what happens.
