T-Shirts Of The SEC: Louisiana State Tigers

[suggestion: play the Mortal Kombat theme song while reading this post]

NOW IT BEGINS!

LSU...where work-release coincides with gamedays!

Time for Alabama to pin the tail on the Tigers over in the spooky spooky romper room they like to call Death Valley.

This is the Saban Bowl. The most one-sided rivalry in all of college football. For Alabama fans, it’s just another SEC West matchup.

For the great unwashed masses of LSU fans, winning this game will be the closest the voodoo capital of North America ever comes to vanquishing a man they schizophrenically refer to as the Antichrist.

More than anything else though…

I wonder what crazy, cockamamie, bordering on insane tactics Les Miles will try to pull this year.

Mike Singletary already used the mind-blowingly Milesian tactic of dropping his pants in the locker room, albeit at halftime, a week ago. Maybe Miles will take it to the XTREEM!!!! and drop his on the sidelines during the game?

I’m sure the faithful LSU horde (of drunken Cajuns) will need something to smile about after Mr. Saban takes his team of +100 Asskicking south this coming weekend and reminds the swamp kitties how a real coach with talented players gets it done.

Georgia Goes Ga-Ga

Uga kinda looks like a baby! Get in mah bellay!

I’m surprised at Georgia. I really am.

No, not because they’ve lost the SEC championship race. They are still in it, with a big showdown against Florida coming up this week to basically decide who represents the SEC East.

The real surprise from Georgia this year? An insane lack of class about losing to Alabama earlier this season.

I have never heard so much screaming for a “do-over” since I was 9, playing neighborhood football in someone’s backyard. It’s like Georgia fans are completely unable to understand that not only did they lose, but that someone else could dare take them apart in such workmanlike fashion.

Honestly, I’m not so sure the Dawgs should be asking for a rematch. All the things that went into Alabama’s vistory early in the season are still there. Scores of highly touted running backs are being stuffed to ridiculously low numbers when they face the Tide. Alabama’s secondary is still putting the hammer on opposing receivers. Alabama’s defensive line is owning the line of scrimmage, even without Terrence Cody.

The only difference since the Tide’s trip to Athens a month ago? Alabama’s been showing they can play for a full 60 minutes.

The Problem Is Not In Your Set

Been fighting a few issues here and there related to a Wordpress upgrade. Never had one go this badly before. And after 2 days of off-and-on troubleshooting, I’m not much closer to an answer.

The Blank Screen of Death…that’s a new one.

Why Does Hyper-V Take A Kabillion Years To Delete A Virtual Machine?

The Tortoise and the Hyper-V...a modern fable.

Make no mistake about it.

I personally think Hyper-V is a seriously kickass slice of awesome from Microsoft. And if you aren’t at least checking it out, you’re really, truly and seriously missing out.

But it is abso-freaking-lutely INSANE how long it takes Hyper-V to fully delete a virtual machine if it has more than say…2 snapshots in it.

While doing some wickedly massive content dev recently, I was having to export some fairly large and semi-complex virtual machines, then fully wipe out them out before importing other fairly large and semi-complex virtual machines back in.

The export and import phases were awesome. Easily Hyper-V’s second best feature, only slightly behind the new snapshot feature.

But I literally would be waiting HOURS for the more involved virtual machines to finish detroying/merging/whatever.

Call me crazy…

But if I tell Hyper-V to “Delete” a given virtual machine, how freaking hard can it be to simply…oh I don’t know…dump the freaking contents of the virtual machine directory, and then clean its references out of Hyper-V?
