Well, the job interview situation has been resolved. I have the time off this afternoon and I am excited about it. We'll see if it turns out alright.
Have a good Tuesday!
Goodluck with your interview ~}

I was able to resolve the problem with the MMC website using Internet Explorer. Even though my computer had the box selected for automatic windows updates, it (Microsoft) did not automatically download and install the service pack 1 for windows 7 which therefore would not allow for an automatic update of windows Internet Explorer.
Once I did this "Important" update, the computer re-booted and everything worked fine....
The whole process took me about 2 hours to do~ I'm so happy, so very happy!
Glad you have it all sorted. happy days

Snowflake, and all other Halloween lovers, I need some advice.
I’m going to revise my Halloween countdown for my iPhone. I want to try my hand at designing a good Halloween pic (I will add elements and effects through Photoshop). I took this picture last night (a few color enhancements have been added) of an old house I came across. But, I don’t think it is sufficiently creep enough. What do y’all think? Keep in mind, the “scary” stuff will be added later, but as the base photo, this one just doesn’t have the creepy haunted house vibe I’m going for.

Ryan, best wishes and good luck on the job interview. I'm glad you were able to clear the time so there's no fuss.
I love it when an Architect keeps the origional look of the inside of an old building, it sort of keeps the "personality" of it and it's history..."if only the walls could talk, what stories might it tell..."

Oh, it has possibilities.

If you really want a "haunted house" look, just go to Google Images and type in "haunted house".

I often wonder if the people who worked in the factory a hundred years ago were happy or unhappy working here.

I like it as a workplace, except when the air conditioning is running steadily! The HVAC vents blow too hard and too cold to suit me.

Thanks Crown!

I like the overgrown look of the grass and bushes, but it looks more like "haunted garage apartment" rather than haunted house...to me, anyway.
