Okay so it's been a while since my last blog post - I've been stupid busy at work. I was out in Redmond for a couple of weeks hanging with my team and it's just been non-stop since I got back - but here's what's new.
I have a suggestion for big dog's name: Lucky :-)
Collies need a herd to care for... He's lucky your family stopped at that rest stop. My family had a very similar experience except it was a black female cat with feline leprosy we found in the mountains of Maui.
1. Bitlocker and the TPM 1.2 module worked together flawlessly - I downloaded the Vista Ultimate Bitlocker thing to have it resize the partition for me and prepare the drive and it all just worked. Very painless. Bitlocker keys backed up on a USBFD
2. The dogs name is officially 'Rusty' (had the kid poll his classmates at school for names and that was one of the ones we liked - he's sort of rust colored and he's sort of old and rusty . . . it fits). :)
Thanks Tony - we did consider 'Lucky' actually . . . and we even considered making 'Drooley' an official name (he seems to have problems keeping water in his mouth as he drinks - more so than our other dogs. :)
