My father's second book, Night of Tears, Years of Joy, has just been released by Xulon Press. You can buy it online through Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, Borders, and Target. Or you can order it directly from Xulon through their website, or by calling 1 (866) 909-BOOK.
The book is a revision and expansion of his original book, Night of Tears, published in 1978. Night of Tears told the story of his life-changing automobile accident in 1969 when he was 18 years old. Samuel wrote about his incredible testimony of God's keeping power during the ordeal and the subsequent recovery.
Now, nearly four decades later, the story still holds great value and inspiration for those facing difficult times. Beyond the original account, the new book includes "the rest of the story"--what has happened in his life since the first book was written, including miraculous manifestations of God's healing and His guiding hand in the orchestration of events.

I think I remember there being a way to get all command prompts to run the vsvars batch file so that the command prompt is actually usable. Do you remember what this is? I think it was a registry setting...

Josh, you're correct - it's a registry setting.
In HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Command Processor, add a new String value named AutoRun. Set the contents to the batch file you'd like to run (e.g. d:\tools\mycustomvsvars.cmd).

I first saw this quote in the book by Paul Heckel called "The Elements of Friendly Software Design." You can also find it here: http://thinkexist.com/quotation/the_art_of_progress_is_to_preserve_order_amid/222000.html
According to a friend of mine, Staples will take used batteries from rechargeable devices such as cell phones for recycling, as well as other categories of "e-waste." I was able to confirm with a phone call that they also will take old UPSes. I'm not totally convinced that the person on the phone knew what I was talking about, but I'm taking it at face value.
Update: The "Staples Soul" program will take large computer items for recycling (for a $10 fee per item). Small items like keyboards, mice, and speakers are accepted at no charge.
A call to Batteries Plus confirmed that they will take them. They will even take the battery component out of the UPS for you!
That's my current plan. We'll see how it goes.
Microsoft recommends that, as a security best practice, interactive logins should done with non-administrative accounts, and tasks or programs that require administrative privileges should be run using the Run as... command.
This can be accomplished by right-clicking the icon for a program and choosing Run as.... The following window displays (Windows XP):
Choose "The following user" radio button and fill in the necessary credentials and click OK.
At the command line, use the runas command:
runas /user:YourDomain\YourUserName normalCommandLine
where YourDomain is the Windows domain to which your account belongs and YourUserName is the name of the account you wish to run as, and normalCommandLine is the set of commands and options that you would normally execute (without concern for user account).

These questions are things I'm still researching.
Well, you're looking at the latest version of Drupal 5 (5.7 as of this posting). I just completed my first multi-site upgrade of the Drupal codebase. I upgraded three sites simultaneously.
Overall, it went pretty well. I did run across one issue, though. When I reactivated the PEAR Wiki filter module, my wikitext processing was not working. After a lot of digging and trial-and-error debugging, I tried re-saving the settings (without any changes) on the filter's configuration page. As is often the case with Drupal, I had to hunt for the proper page first. The path ended up being something like...
/admin/settings/filters/[filter id # goes here]/configure
Today, for some reason, the tabs that are normally visible on the filter configuration page were "invisible." They were still clickable, but you couldn't see them. If you happened to mouse over them, the links were still there. Weird!
In retrospect, I should have done better backups, specifically my .htaccess and php.ini files from the root of the Drupal installation.
Here's a tip: I used Internet Explorer to save my Modules configuration page for each site as a web archive file. This way, when I reactivated the site, I could see which modules needed re-enabled.
I'm very happy with the overall capabilities, structure, and organization of Drupal. I'd go as far as to say the I'm a big fan, and I have recommended Drupal to others for several projects. I haven't tried Drupal 6 yet (I'm a little nervous about upgrading all of my modules), but I expect good things in the future.
