17hrs?

The question is: why play something you don't like for 17hrs?

Anyone else spot the Carebear on the shelf behind him?

Just this morning...

Colleague having a problem with his WinXP desktop in failed 'active desktop' mode.

Cue email from our Technical Architect, detailing the 'fix', requiring hacking of the system registry & reboot.

Instead...

Me: Show me the problem.

Colleague: <click. click. click. click>

M: You realise you can minimise all your windows by clicking there? (icon on quickstart bar)

C: <click>

M: Click on the desktop.

C: <right-click>

M: No... *click* on the desktop. Not, right-click on the desktop.

C: <click>

M: <hits F5 on keyboard>

<screen is restored. Icons reappear>

Colleagues: What did you do?

M: Is this were I do my Fonzie impression?

How about passive cancelling?

Etymotic ER4p FTW.

Although, not everyone gets on with the inner-ear headphones.

But, amazing sound reproduction. Top-notch noise-cancelling. No bulky ear-pieces. And no batteries required.
