Update your xp machines.....and get them off the internet

Today is the day the last patches for xp are sent out. And I am updating my XP VM right now. After that I am disconnecting the VM from the internet. Or I might not and see how infected it can get .
(Since I can always roll it back)

Anyways,

That is what I am doing. Anyone else got xp machines in VMs? What are you doing/planning with them?
