What Will Happen To The Carbon Harvest Structure At The Town Dump?

With Carbon Harvest declaring bankruptcy, what will happen to the...greenhouse thingy...that was built at the dump on Old Ferry Road?  Are there plans to seek a use for it that will honor the original intent as best as possible?  I am very curious about this.  Hope someone is working on it.  Anyone here know anything about it?

Object in Putney Road Last Evening?

Did anyone else have to swerve to avoid a tire or similar-looking object lying in Putney Road between Eaton Ave & Vermont Ave around 8pm last night (Monday 4/22)?  We sacrificed a mirror to one of those telephone poles right next to the southbound lane (he ones all scarrd up from being hit by other vehicles, plow blades, etc).  Nothing seen in daylight this morning except mirror fragments by the pole.

Computer Helper?

Can anyone help me solve this horrible problem? I have a laptop (HP) 5 years old. I recently noticed on the bottom right of the screen where it used to say "windows 7", that it suddenly read :

Windows 7 Professional Test mode
Windows 7 Build 7600

So here's my idiot of the century mistake explained;

My curiosity led to one thing after another and I found myself at a tech blog trying to understand what may have happened to create this change. I never did find out because I went only so far before reading some instructions on how to remove that message which required downloading a program .. Said to be from Microsoft.. Called "fix it".

Question About the Race for Brattleboro Selectboard 3-Year Seat

During last year's race for District 3 representative, there was a vigorous discussion here on iBrattleboro about the character of one of the candidates, that she was deceptive in characterizing her role in an earlier campaign, and then when a radio personality questioned her about it, she proceeded to attack him, and then, writing directly to his bosses, she attacked his job.

The question itself was never fully answered, but the controversy did reveal quite a bit about the candidate.

Is this character reference relevant to the upcoming election, or is it old news?

E-commerce Shopping Cart Options?

My small business is planning to launch an e-commerce site in the next few months and is looking into shopping cart options.   I'm wondering if anyone has done recent research on the pros and cons of the various tools out there.  Initially, the number of products offered will be fewer than 20 and we'll probably use PayPal for the financial transactions.  Simple integration with QuickBooks would be nice.  Can anyone help us out?

THANKS!
