Don't they create a huge blind spot when driving?
asteroids are pansys
I saw it
I saw Barbarella when I was 11 years old! Yup, the theatre somehow ended up playing it for the Saturday Matinee. Cost me 25 cents. I remember my jaw hanging open in amazement (not at the quality of the cinema, but at Jane Fonda nude). This was in 1969 in a small town in northern Ontario. I've been hor - er scarred ever since.
I still have my old 8-bit computer (a coco3 if you must know) and it doesn't look anything like the image shown. Granted, I'm using a commodore 1702 for the display.
I couldn't ...
read that article without cringing - twice as a matter of fact.
they won't do it
They don't even do it now for Vista. I have tried several times to get Microsoft to give me the XP code for proper activation after downgrading and they WON'T do it. They offered to do it for a fee of $60.00 once. Here's what Microsoft says they WILL do (but won't).
"When an end user is using their downgrade
rights offered under the License Terms in
Windows Vista Business and Ultimate versions
and they use both Windows XP media and a
product key that was previously activated, they
will be unable to activate on-line over the
Internet, due to the hardware conﬁguration
change when installing on the Vista system. In
these cases the end user will be prompted to
call the Activation Support Line and explain
their circumstances to the Customer Service
Representative. Once it is determined that the
end user has a valid Vista Business or Ultimate
license, the Customer Service Representative will
help them activate their software."
Here's the full pdf of what Microsoft says your downgrade rights are (but they ignore it).
Heh, you said Pu.
Yes, Microsoft will help you downgrade to Windows XP from Vista for $60.00. It happened to me. They gave me the runaround for about 4 hours before a woman (a supervisor) offered to help me downgrade for $60.00. This despite what this document states.
Where do I sign up.
Have you tried it?
Yes I've tried it. In fact its on the same machine I tried Vista on (2.8ghz - 2gb ram). While Vista was slow and clunky on this machine, Windows 7's performance was quite snappy. Only had a slight problem getting the sound to work but I got it ironed out.
I have to admit
I might be interested in seeing a movie that picks up where the 1982 classic ends. Surely someone in the outside world would notice that there is no longer any communication with two different bases and then send someone to investigate only to find...what?
Shouldn't that be
@ Sarah Bee re. Santa smoking
"crying children bewildered by the sight of Santa having a sneaky fag"
Everyone knows Santa smokes a pipe, and I quote Clement Moore;
"The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth,
And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath;"
I guess sometimes Santa just doesn't have time to pack a pipe and was sneaking a quick cigarette to save some time.
Click on tools then put a check beside menu bar. I just had to open IE7 to find that out as I'm a Firefox user. FF3 works OK except for Hotmail sign on. Nothing appears in in the email address bar even though I have told it to remember my email address, and then when I hit the first letter of my email address it pops up with an extra letter in it. Kind of annoying but not a deal breaker.
I wish they'd put microphones on these landers so we could hear whats happening on mars. You know, ambient noise, winds, rock slides that sort of thing. NASA could stream it live. I think it'd be a big hit.
The order of the "true" and "april fool" about halfway through the quiz.

pre cgi'd I guess
Its too bad that AVG's link scanner technology really slows down your browser. Specifically any page with advertising or links to other sites. Hotmail is one notable page that becomes insufferably slow thanks to link scanner. Thats why I'm not using AVG anymore.
@Vista is great
42 seconds to a usable desktop and you think that's great? My AMD4200+ with XP boots to a usable (ie I can open a program and start doing something) desktop 14 seconds after I press the power button. I'm thinking about putting puppy or dsl on it to see how fast that will boot.
nothing entertaining about Chicago????
Have you never heard of Lake Shore Drive? Everyday thousands of commuters take LSD on their way to work. Doesn't that sound entertaining? (thanks to Stephen Colbert for that joke)
Something about the french
Here in Canada our former prime minister, Jean Chretien, famously choked a protester leading the press to dub it the "Shawinigan handshake", after Chretien's home town.
So ghettoblaster is the same in Dutch as it is in English?
One of Sheriff Arpaio's ex inmates.
it was the man who gave dong to the female inmate.
There's an old joke that goes something like this. A missionary in Africa was attending a village where he was trying to teach the head man english. as they walked the perimeter of the village the missionary would point out objects and say their name aloud and the head man would repeat the word. "Tree", the missionary said and the man would repeat "tree". "Stick", the missionary said and the man would repeat "stick". Suddenly they came accross a man and womam making love. Embarassed, the missionary said "Man riding bike" and the head man became enraged, ran over and beat the other male to death. "Man riding my bike" said the head man.
It has to be said...
One thing is for certain: there is no stopping them; the monkeys will soon be here. And I for one welcome our new monkey overlords.
