    When I first attempted to login at the G4TTV,my first thought was that my cable had reverted back to a dial-up connection.The problem,whatever it is,will pass. The only bummer was the few (the usual?) posters who were vocally pointing out how this slowdown would never have happened before the TTV/G4 merge.
  4. And along the same lines for Santa having problems... 'Twas the night before Christmas and Santa's a wreck... How to live in a world that's politically correct? His workers no longer would answer to "Elves", "Vertically Challenged" they were calling themselves. And labor conditions at the north pole Were alleged by the union to stifle the soul. Four reindeer had vanished, without much propriety, Released to the wilds by the Humane Society. And equal employment had made it quite clear That Santa had better not use just reindeer. So Dancer and Donner, Comet and Cupid, Were replaced with 4 pigs, and you know that looked stupid! The runners had been removed from his sleigh; The ruts were termed dangerous by the E.P.A. And people had started to call for the cops When they heard sled noises on their roof-tops. Second-hand smoke from his pipe had his workers quite frightened. His fur trimmed red suit was called "Unenlightened." And to show you the strangeness of life's ebbs and flows, Rudolf was suing over unauthorized use of his nose And had gone on Geraldo, in front of the nation, Demanding millions in over-due compensation. So, half of the reindeer were gone; and his wife, Who suddenly said she'd enough of this life, Joined a self-help group, packed, and left in a whiz, Demanding from now on her title was Ms. And as for the gifts, why, he'd ne'er had a notion That making a choice could cause so much commotion. Nothing of leather, nothing of fur, Which meant nothing for him. And nothing for her. Nothing that might be construed to pollute. Nothing to aim. Nothing to shoot. Nothing that clamored or made lots of noise. Nothing for just girls. Or just for the boys. Nothing that claimed to be gender specific. Nothing that's warlike or non-pacific. No candy or sweets...they were bad for the tooth. Nothing that seemed to embellish a truth. And fairy tales, while not yet forbidden, Were like Ken and Barbie, better off hidden. For they raised the hackles of those psychological Who claimed the only good gift was one ecological. No baseball, no football...someone could get hurt; Besides, playing sports exposed kids to dirt. Dolls were said to be sexist, and should be passe; And Nintendo would rot your entire brain away. So Santa just stood there, disheveled, perplexed; He just could not figure out what to do next. He tried to be merry, tried to be gay, But you've got to be careful with that word today. His sack was quite empty, limp to the ground; Nothing fully acceptable was to be found. Something special was needed, a gift that he might Give to all without angering the left or the right. A gift that would satisfy, with no indecision, Each group of people, every religion; Every ethnicity, every hue, Everyone, everywhere...even you. So here is that gift, it's price beyond worth... "May you and your loved ones enjoy peace on earth."
  5. This should get you going- http://www.plextor.com/english/support/faqs/G00038.htm Oops...just realized you'd already blown through the invisible DMA barrier... Time to go put on a pot of wake-up coffee.
  6. Sounds like a restaurant where I worked in way back in the early 70's...

    Good link- I've got a few redneck friends that will like it. Couldn't find an audio file for it,but here's the version we sang when I was a little. http://www.melekalikimaka.com/12days.htm
  8. I hear you on that.It's unfortunate that a lot of recent "improvements" have been either a mixed blessing or a bungled curse. These are the good old days.
  9. It's human nature to fondly think about days long ago,when life was far simpler. Some things,however,are far better now than they were back then in the good old days.
  10. When it hit the local news here (I live about 10 miles from Corvallis) we thought it was funny until it was revealed that the potential fine was Fed-sized. The system works well-a lot of small airplanes disappear in the Pacific NW boonies and wouldn't be found for years,if ever,without it.

  13. I doubt that it'll be a problem with any who post here-simply being aware of driving problems is admission of paying attention when behind the wheel. Years ago I normally carried old sparkplugs and other sundry bits in easy reach while riding...only had to resort to using said equalizers a few times.
  14. How about a flying pickup truck to haul that mower?. (5.62 MB WMV file)
  15. Congratulations!... Kids are an awesome responsibility,but well worth it.
