  1. Apparently they're air EVERYTHINGS. HEE HEE hee....
  2. That's how rappers invented record scratching....ummm....er sumthin. Meanwhile.... I couldn't do it. I tried and while my foot didn't quite go the other way, it did some sorta lazy type cross to the other direction. Bizarre. Ugh.
  3. Tyme Glad that you're back and that the healing can begin. I can't even fathom what it must be like to lose a significant other or a parent, and I hope that your brother and his children find a way to have this horrible event bring them closer. He has a great brother and a good support system in place, it would seem. All the monkey's best....
  4. Hey Nerelda!! Best of luck to you in your job search! I sincerely send you all of my good wishes in landing that job. w00t!
  5. Tyme- I haven't known you long, and I don't know you as well as some of the other members on the board, but you were one of the first on the G4 boards to be really nice to me and welcome me in, and then you went and got hurt and we missed you for months...and then finally got you back and I've been gone. Anyway, I'm just saying that *I* for one don't feel pity for you - just genuine compassion for a buddy who has lost someone dear to them...you're feeling heartache for your brother and your nieces and nephews, and that causes you pain too. It's certainly understandable, and all of us here just recognize the pain you are going through and want to offer condolences to you that you have to go through it and that your family has to go through it. Please don't take it as pity...it's a different beast. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and yours, that you may find your way through this difficult time and find solace and happiness on the other end of it. Hang tough my Northern Friend!
  6. This was a funny bit, but not quite true..... Snopes, home of all things true on the internet, says this is one lost some truth somewhere along the way...interesting read if you're interested right here.
  7. no, I had restarted before...I really think it was using the uninstall TOOL they provided instead of just deleting the folders - it was able to erase active X components which is what I had wanted to do in the first place. But, restarting always helps, as we in the IT business are hyper-aware.
  8. YAY! problem fixed. Thanks to all who gave me the thoughtful advice. Here's what I did: Actually thought to go out and look at Macromedia's FAQ about the Flash Player. They suggested the following to fix all problems. Uninstall the player (which ALSO uninstalls the Active X stuff for it, which is where I believe the problem truly lied). Restart your computer. Re-install Flash. I did those steps, and voila...I'm flashing again.
  9. Windows XP Pro doesn't have an application data folder in the Windows folder, but it does have flash/shockwave stuff in the c:\documents & settings folder\*user*\macromedia folder. I deleted the entire macromedia folder and tried to re-install, but alas, it's gotten me no further. This is quite a head-scratcher. And by head-scratcher I mean HUGE PAIN IN TEH AR$E. Thanks for the continued thoughts though....keep 'em coming if you think of anything.
  10. Vile_DR: Was that cake from Wendy's, or are you apologizing for putting YOUR finger in the cake? Happy Birthday Whitewolf4!!
  11. Thanks for everyone's help so far. None of the suggestions so far have fixed my lack-of-flash problem. For a while, I thought it might have been blocked by our network admin, but I had a friend who had flash here at work pull a site up, and they have no problems seeing it. This is frustrating. Any other ideas?? Thanks everyone!
  12. Oh, as a follow-up. I decided just to try and re-install...went through the control panels to add/remove and scrapped the old firefox and used IE to go out and download a new version. Still has same problems.
  13. Hey all...hope someone might have some ideas I haven't come up with yet. I have been running Mozilla Firefox 1.04 on my machine at work (Windows XP Pro system) and have had no problems with flash whatsoever. This morning, I went online to a local talk radio station that has just started streaming. Well, when I went to run their playing, it told me I didn't have the Active X plug-in for my browser and I needed it, so I downloaded it and installed. It seems that since then, flash hasn't worked in my browser. I have since tried to uninstall the plug-in, but it doesn't show up in my extensions list where it first installed. I have tried re-installing both Flash and, while I was there, Shockwave. I still can't see Flash. Anyone have ideas?
  14. Mac...you're nuts. That said, love your show! Back to gas prices and all...one of your earlier callers said gas was $1.70 and then he left for Alabama (? don't shoot me, I can't remember) and it was up over two bucks. Well, he'd been out of the state for a bit. Here in Dallas, the prices were about $1.70 over the winter months...but a couple months ago they shot up to about $2.20/gal. We've now settled back down near the $2 mark. I'm a big fan of Racetrac...got gas last night for $1.97/gal. Didn't think I'd be happy about paying almost $2/gal. when just 5 years ago I remember they were at .79/gal here in the Lone Star State. *sigh*
  15. Hi Mandy! Welcome to the forum...great bunch of people here, I'm sure you'll enjoy it. Take what you need, leave the rest....
  16. I remember watching that at the time - reminds me of the whole Janet Jackson thing in the SuperBowl a couple years ago...was watching and it flashed on the screen and was gone. I was left sitting there wondering..."did I just see what I thought I saw??" Was funny at the time and is still funny now. Thx for the trip down Memory Lane. R.I.P. The Screen Savers...
  17. Okay....I'll go there..... Red Light District (and thanks MM...good to see ya.....too funny...)
  18. Direction! (long time no see peeps...and I get to post in one of my favorite kind of forums...hi to all those who remember me, and those who don't - well Hi to you too...)
  19. I completely agree with what has been said B - thanks for doing the usual great job. We'd do well to forget the other junk at other boards unless it is HELPFUL, which I don't see happening anytime soon.

    Birthday

    Snaxe, Sorry I missed it all - I've been away for a few days - but I wanted to wish a very happy belated birthday to one of my new friends here at the BT board. aaaand maannnnyyyyyyy mooorrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrre....
  21. Thanks Nerelda! I hadn't seen that on the website when I was looking for it after it was mentioned that it might be a beta release. It's good to have that information! Hopefully 0.9 will be out this week then...

    dknoppix: They kind of just give them to you. Depending on how many you give away (I think) or how often you use the mail...I haven't figured out how they determine it, but at this point, as soon as I give away the 6 I have, the next day I have another 6 to give out. It will just tell you in the main page of your mail.
  23. Snaxe: Could be - I haven't seen anything on the website proclaming it as beta, which Firefox did, but it's very possible they just assumed people knew, or it was on there at one time and it isn't for some reason now. Either way, I'm not complaining loudly
  24. I agree, I love the idea if B is up for it. I am like JSKY in that I would post even if posts weren't counted at all - if they had no count at all towards anything. But, I don't think that B minded about that - could simply have been just a size thing. Those threads do tend to get huge realllllllly quick. But, if the post count thing is a problem, perhaps a thread could be set up like the test room where none of the posts there count towards anything. I did have a lot of fun doing it and it'd be fun to continue it. If not, that's cool too. Anyway, back to the naming idea...I think there could be a few people who could be in the running for town drunk. LOL...I'm not pointing fingers cause 3 always point back at me when I point fingers...and one thumb kinda off towards nowhere.... Yeah. Anyhoo...I like the idea of fun...but, naming conventions like that require some work I think. Oh, who am I kidding - I have no clue about that side of it. What say you B? Any of the other admins who we don't include often enough perhaps? Galadriel?
