MSN Virtual Earth

I have this problem with MSN Virtual Earth. It looks like this:

Virtual Earth with missing chunks

Apparently, the borg have landed in Costa Mesa, and their ship is resting at the corner of Mesa Verde and Baker.

But it’s more pervasive than that. They seem to be everywhere I look. They seem to have invaded our world quite thoroughly; everywhere from New York to Phoenix. Resistance truly is futile.

Oh, wait: maybe it’s just this:

Toolbar shows load errors

Oh, they just can’t get everything to load right. I would have thought that was an important thing to check before releasing. I guess that’s why they’re the biggest software company in the world and I’m just a smartass.

    You aren’t just a smartass, Seth! I’m sure you’re useful for other things… like taking out the trash, or making paper airplanes.

    It’s true: you make some spectacular paper airplanes.

    Indeed I do; in fourth grade I convinced my teacher to let the entire class go out to the PE field and have a paper airplane fight. That was some awesome, let me tell you.

    This would be Mrs Wilgus, who would throw paper airplanes in class while the students were taking tests, right?

    Yes. Jonathan and I taught her how to make stiletto ones. She was making old-fashioned ones that couldn’t get across the room. I also convinced her to organize the desks in this crazy octopus formation where desks went every which-way. Ah, fourth grade.
