the most effective way of stopping kids getting pregnant would be: A) mandatory prosecution of all those under age. B) stop paying them benefits and C) stop giving them houses.
at last some one has found a practical use for a cat.

golden hermitite and (blue) hylomar are gasket compounds, not adhesives!
loctite 648 is a high strength, high temperature adhesive, failing that, uhu "endfest 300" epoxy will withstand 150c+..
however, using those make dissassembly very difficult.
a far better solution would be a castle nut and lock/split pin.
regularly and every time a high value item is added to the my documents file.
a daily back up to a usb drive is simple and cheap.
no excuses for nor doing so.

not being an l33t haxxor of the various o/s's, what your comments suggest is that; linux needing no antivirus/malware programmes and having none installed, could be passing on such like to others, without even being aware of it.
the assumption that black hats have not written and disseminated code to do this is almost as nieve as those that use windows unprotected.
given the surprised that continue to jump out at us over rootkits etc. in long established and well known windows variants, what of little known linux?
all the talk of vitrual PCs etc. is so much fog.
totaly irrelevant to 99% of PC users.
i say it again, though in a different format; if linux is that good and free, why insn't it the no. one distro?
because it is not what the fanbois claim it is.
@ I remember a time... By Alex Posted Monday 16th February 2009 18:01 GMT
your attitude is a perfect illustration of why i can't be arsed with Linux.
the same l33t157 attitude i encountered on the "help" forums.
if Linux is so good and so free and easy to use why isn't it a distro on all new PCs?
no licence fee, no activation/ re-activation, genuine disadvantage etc.
the truth is, its a geek toy, nothing else.
get back in yer closet.
the right to see approximately 3000 school children killed each year?
the right to see Florida bury more gunshot victims per year than the whole of western Europe?
the right to live in a land with more gun shops than gas stations?
the right to have to carry a gun to feel safe in my own house?
those are rights i don't need and don't want.
with those rights goes the last rights.
living in a state of fear that leaves people wondering if their man stopper rounds are of sufficiently high performance to avoid prosecution for "over penetration" on a trip to the mall can hardly be called freedom.
fight the state?
of course I'd like to defend my self against the state but have you seen the price of a challenger these days?
never mind feeding the beast!

norton......serves you right.
i use eset nod32.
i don't use oem discs, i have full licensed discs for xp and 2k.
why i should accept criticism from a Norton user is beyond me......
still and all, if my system works to my satisfaction WTF has it to do with you??

xp server, i don't do file sharing.
open office is free.
arcsoft photo studio is 10% of the cost of photobloateware
scamware is not my ting
you need to prove something?
FUD? speak inglish
what ever FUD is, i can re install a complete, net ready xp or 2k pc in around two hours.
that's a 1.7ghz intel with 512meg ram and a 40gb, 7200 rpm drive.
xp will usually run straight off without any real need for additional drivers, (never mind having the driver cd's ready to hand).
what IS standard spec?
sorry shroeder but no linux live cd ever went live on my machines, not that i haven't tried.
...and no, i haven't "read all the recent articles about malware gangs", i have friends and hobbies, I'm not a geek, nerd, troll or serf.
in fact, i haven't read all the OLD articles about malware gangs etc. etc.
i do know that windows works and i can fix it, untrained though i am, should the need arise.
so thanks for the "looking down my nose at you" reply that i have come to expect from those such as you who belittle all those that dare to question the the glaringly obvious superiority of linux.
at al,unbuntubois an all
if i could get a version of ubuntu/linux/whatever to install and actually run without the need for command line knowledge, as i can with windoze, then i would use it.
that, however, has never happened.
as i can re build any of my 5 pc's and be net ready in under 2 hours, I'll stick with windoze and leave linux to the dedicated geeks.
ps; none of my pc's are patched and all are service pack 0, i just have good security ware and stay away from dodgy sites, it seems to work.

the challenger is superior to the others in almost all respects.
just look how many Abrams have been toasted in Iraq and Afghanistan.
the leopard's Armour is no better and the leclerc's has had to be upgraded to try and match the challengers.
only engine reliability lets the challenger down.

why should the time of year be important?
it's only a celebration based on the v unlikely events concerning the supposed son of a garden fairy.
a celebration hijacking a pagan ceremonial date.
sod all to do with logic and reason.
"But it's real hard to oppress an armed population. Easy to suppress an unarmed, misinformed one."
tell that to the Iraqi's, almost every house has an ak47 yet they were still lead by a tyrant.

sure and you were late both times...................................
but never mind, best not to jump in on the side of the looser, eh?
as Germany was your sure fire rival for economic clout, i can see why you (GRUDGINGLY) chose to help us.
if your so free. how come you have so many gun laws and live in fear?
'cause all your loonies have guns too.
bully for you.
as for the percentage of Russia deemed to be Asian, that stopped them dead in their tracks, right?
if new york is the backwoods, that would explain the shootings, right again?
says something about your social values.
@ac re second amendement
"The UK is a great example of this. The population is disarmed and crime is rampant. Guns are banned. Certain knives are banned. Coming in 2010, rolled up newspapers will be deemed hazardous and banned as well. I guess that is the problem with being a subject rather than a citizen."
how is it then, that the two most heavily armed civilian populations, Switzerland and the USA also have amongst the highest gun murder rates in the world?
we have around 60 gun murders per year, in America, around 3000 children are shot dead each year.
oh, just a little heads-up; guns aren't banned, only a few certain types are especially difficult to legally obtain, just as in the USA..
@ phil again
"Try and remember that until WE entered the war and landed on the beach at Normandy, you Brits were LOSING. All of Europe had already LOST. You were already LOSERS in the war and without us you would have been DOOMED."
did you forget Russia?
also, half the troops landed on D-day were British and commonwealth.
