Mall Roundup

If you've installed Windows XP SP1 Hotfix Q811493 via Windows Update, uninstall it and wait until Microsoft re-releases the patch. This patch causes performance to degrade. (Yes, even more so than Windows normally does. :) )

According to the sign, the new Arby's at the Palisades Center Mall would be opening in May 2003. Today is May 1 so I went and guess what? It isn't open yet. Oh well. Perhaps May 31 is the date. :)

Also took a look at the Sprint PCS store. They now have the Sanyo 8100 camera phone for $200. ($100 if you're opening a new account or file some rebate with terms I can't grasp at the moment.) I played with it in the store. Colors and focus are good, as far as I could tell on that small LCD, but the resolution (352x288) is low. The press release has the specs on the camera phone. Limitations aside, it's rather tempting to get one for fotologging. (Of course then I'd have two spare phones. Such a waste.)

And finally, the Cheesecake Factory on Level 1 looks almost ready to open. I can hardly wait. :)

Took a picture of the center elevator shaft just for fun. I don't know why the mall had to make it glow green. It's weird that way.
