One more day, just one more day

Quick Thoughts
* OK, so since it is still currently early on Thursday it is two more days ... get over it.
* A quick (cough) THANK you to the VDOT project team that decided not to finish the construction on I-495 on time (all lanes were too be opened NLT 05:00), causing serious backups before 05:30AM as all traffic from the other side of 495, I95, and I395 that wanted to get to Tyson's had to loop through Edsall Rd. Good Move, guys. Oh, and the people involved in the (atleast one)accident this caused probably have a word or two for you.
* Symantec released an alert for TCP/1433 ... MS-SQL ... keep that one firewalled off, patched/up-to-date, and secured. That's all.
