Block Delivery of Windows XP SP2
« on: August 18, 2004, 03:06:53 PM »
Microsoft has issued a Toolkit to Temporarily Block Delivery of Windows XP SP2 to a PC Through Automatic Updates (AU) and Windows Update (WU). English only.
Please note that the mechanism to temporarily disable delivery of Windows XP SP2 will be available for a period of 120 days (4 months) from August 16. At the end of this period, Windows XP SP2 will be delivered to all Windows XP and Windows XP Service Pack 1 systems.  
For downloads and further instructions go HERE.
If you've decided that you would rather wait and not update right away, Here is the easy way to accomplish this.
I for one have already taken the plunge.

Is that wishful thinking? is that where you plan to be on 2/31/06?
According to the date, that's also known as never never land. ;D

Well Staind, I would say it's just marketing trick and nothing else... here in Canada, everything is well calculated... they like to spread those stories that lakes are not clean, blah, blah, blah... why ? Just because well known "Ontario Place", "MarineLand" and many many other "water world" places for kids wouldn't make enough profit if swimming in lake Ontario is allowed... everyone would go to lake Ontario beaches. First of all, simple because it's free, you don't have to pay anything to enjoy wonderful site, and second - it's really wonderful place to rest, believe me.

Just take a look at these 3 photos. Those photos are actual photos of river Sava in Croatia. Town where I came from is located on the east of Croatia and it's surrounded with river Sava (river makes big curve around that small city). We used to swim in that river every single day in past... last 20 and something years while I still was there. Just take a close look at color of that river... and no, it's not because it was cloudy (you can see that sky is still blueish), that's something like mixed mud and oil from heavy ships... no one ever got sick because of that... that's life. Comparing to that, lake Ontario is drinking water. Picture number 4 is proof...  ;)

Maybe, but when I was at the harbour front I knew I wouldn't want to go swimming there :) maybe it's just dirtier there I'm not sure. The picture of lake ontario you showed makes it look pretty clean.

Yeah, harbour areas are always pretty dirty wherever you go. Ships will always make water filthy. Croatia has one of the cleanest seas in the world (Adriatic Sea), but still, when you go to harbour area, you'll always see those colorful marks floating on water, made by oil comming out of the ships... that's why beaches should be always located far from harbours.

Cheers !
