Don't they create a huge blind spot when driving?
Is it just me
or does the module look a little beat up. Really starting to resemble the old Soviet era technology.

CRUDentials - gotta remember that one!

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.
There is plenty of room for all God's creatures - right beside the mashed potatoes.
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).
That's one -
bad-ass hat, or maybe just ass-hat.
Heh, you said Pu.
Hey, MS wasn't charging for help installing XP, they wanted to charge me to "activate" the XP I had already installed. This service is supposed to be free. Get a clue.
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?
I worked agricultural jobs as summer work while a teenager (picking strawberries, picking apples, picking tobacco (yes, tobacco)), and I would have been fired if I worked that slowly.
That is all it is. Remember, she's about to take half of his stuff and demand alimony payments on top of that. Just some legal maneuvering, don't read too much into it..
Shouldn't that be
I just had a picture...
in my mind, of the shuttle sitting in front of some red-necks trailer on cement blocks with all the hatches open and the engine gone.
Must not look at the sexy HR secretary while operating brain image machine.
@ 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.

The skycrane will then fly away to crash safely somewhere well away from the rover.
Sure it will.
55 billion dollars US you could buy 68 Freedom of the Seas
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.
walk into a building
You'd think one of them would have seen it.
The order of the "true" and "april fool" about halfway through the quiz.

This is just HP's way of saving money by having its customers dispose of its excess cardboard, thus keeping down the cost of its hardware.
"I put some pot plants out and he even planted them in the garden one day."
And the cops didn't notice her little "homegrown" garden?
Paris, cause she likes a little pot too.
I use Foxit instead - a nice relief from all those annoying Adobe pop-ups.
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.
Umm...the owner was 57 so to him it wouldn't be granny anything
@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)
Thanks, I just spit my drink out. And now I can't the that image of some fool running around slapping people with his penis out of my head.
Make a lot of poop out of that .
welcome our new lesbian battle clone overlords!
I guess now they can call it F*ck Dell day. I sure hope the government didn't give Dell some "tax incentives" to park their call centre in Ottawa. If they did I'd be inclined to ask for them back.
If they like that...
Maybe they'll want to come around my place and try some of my home-made corn liquor.
What!!! Oh my God! Oh, wait a minute, I thought you said 7.6 million years. Whew!
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.
"when probed by judges"...and we all know how painful THAT can be.
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.
