This post is an experiment. It's an interesting animated gif, but it's 1.06MB in size and I have been burned recently by uploading a big file. So I am testing it out here. If it crashes this thread, nothing much will be lost. A partial sucess, you can download it and view it in your computer, just not here. I guess you can have 8MB of pictures in a post, just not in any one picture.
My Windows update today with 17 items on my XP machine went okay until after it rebooted. The cursor moved(but didn't curse) and clicking on anything did nothing. I tried control-alt-delete and clicking on the taskbar to get the task manager and clicking on the start menu icon to reboot. Nothing worked. I had to use the power button to reboot twice with no better results. I booted to Safe Mode to run System Restore to get it working again. Any other XP users here?
