The eve of China

Last minute prep continues apace.

Mozilla Firefox is still crashing. I think it has something to do with the tabbed browsing plug-in (Tabbrowser Extensions) that I use.

I can't get my USB mouse or trackball working. I'm taking my Wacom Tablet for my cousin Jennifer, a budding illustrator, to play with, but I'll bet it won't work either. It seems the Windows XP Pro SP2 installation disc I ordered from MSDN Academic Alliance is lacking in all drivers. Any ideas?

My mom bought a Bath & Body Works pillow for her mom, who's flying from Taipei to Beijing to meet us, and... yes, you guessed it: it's MADE IN CHINA. This is going to be a homecoming of sorts for the little wad of cotton.

It's a sign of my musical impoverishment that even at 192Kbps, the rip of my entire CD collection spans less than 9Gb, and thus fits on a pair of DVDs.

I'm not taking and blank CD-Rs, as I expect my uncle will have them. I am taking some blank DVD-Rs and hoping he will have a DVD-R drive, though.
Edit, 01:15 BST Thu 22 Jun 2006 - yes, and no. He has a DVD+R drive, as do I. Duh.

Wacom should have drivers available for download from it's website (under support) I can't speak for the mouse or trackball

Device drivers from Wacom and Microsoft
They do, and I installed from the CD that came with the tablet, too.

It still says that it can't detect the device. This is true of any USB device, and even of the battery drivers. I can make my notebook hibernate by closing the lid, but I can't get it to detect the percent of power remaining or auto-hibernate. Something's definitely missing in Windows.

Re: Device drivers from Wacom and Microsoft
Oh ouch,

You have my deepest sympathies. That calls for a clean system reinstall, probably from another disk. I'd be suspicious that the one you have is faulty. That, or that portions of your hard drive were corrupted, before/during the install
