  1. Nice - Tableless, simple, light. I like it.
  2. The XPS is butt ugly, IMO. If you want a decent laptop that also looks good, try a Lenovo ThinkPad. They have some pretty good battery life and have hardware customization on purchase.
  3. When you occasionally have a really bad day, and you just need to take it out on someone, don't take it out on someone you know, take it out on someone you don't know. I was sitting at my desk when I remembered a phone call I'd forgotten to make. I found the number and dialed it. A man answered, saying "Hello." I politely said, "This is Chris. Could I please peak with Robin Carter?" Suddenly the phone was slammed down on me. I couldn't believe that anyone could be so rude. I tracked down Robin's correct number and called her. I had transposed the last two digits of her phone number. After hanging up with her, I decided to call the 'wrong' number again. When the same guy answered the phone, I yelled "You're an asshole!" and hung up. I wrote his number down with the word 'asshole' next to it, and put it in my desk drawer. Every couple of weeks, when I was paying bills or had a really bad day, I'd call him up and yell, "You're an asshole!" It always cheered me up. When Caller ID came to our area, I thought my therapeutic 'asshole' calling would have to stop. So, I called his number and said, "Hi, this is John Smith from the telephone company. I'm calling to see if you're familiar with our Caller ID Program?" He yelled "NO!" and slammed down the phone. I quickly called him back and said, "That's because you're an asshole!" One day I was at the store, getting ready to pull into a parking spot. Some guy in a black BMW cut me off and pulled into the spot I had patiently waited for. I hit the horn and yelled that I'd been waiting for that spot. The idiot ignored me. I noticed a "For Sale" sign in his car window, so I wrote down his number. A couple of days later, right after calling the first asshole (I had his number on speed dial,) I thought that I'd better call the BMW asshole, too. I said, "Is this the man with the black BMW for sale?" "Yes, it is." "Can you tell me where I can see it?" "Yes, I live at 1802 West 34th Street. It's a yellow house, and the car's parked right out in front." "What's your name?" I asked. "My name is Don Hansen," he said. "When's a good time to catch you, Don?" "I'm home every evening after five." "Listen, Don, can I tell you something?" "Yes?" "Don, you're an asshole." Then I hung up, and added his number to my speed dial, too. Now, when I had a problem, I had two assholes to call. But after several months of calling them, it wasn't as enjoyable as it used to be. So, I came up with an idea. I called Asshole #1. "Hello." "You're an asshole!" (But I didn't hang up.) "Are you still there?" he asked. "Yeah," I said. "Stop calling me," he screamed. "Make me," I said. "Who are you?" he asked. "My name is Don Hansen." "Yeah? Where do you live?" "Asshole, I live at 1802 West 34th Street, a yellow house, with my black Beamer parked in front." He said, "I'm coming over right now, Don. And you had better start saying your prayers." I said, "Yeah, like I'm really scared, asshole." Then I called Asshole #2. "Hello?" he said. "Hello, asshole," I said. He yelled, "If I ever find out who you are..." "You'll what?" I said. "I'll kick your ass," he exclaimed. I answered, "Well, asshole, here's your chance. I'm coming over right now." Then I hung up and immediately called the police, saying that I lived at 1802 West 34th Street, and that I was on my way over there to kill my gay lover. Then I called Channel 13 News about the gang war going down on West 34th Street. I quickly got into my car and headed over to 34th street. There I saw two assholes beating the crap out of each other in front of six squad cars, a police helicopter and a news crew. NOW I feel much better. Anger management really works.
  4. one of the best I've seen...
  5. Jim and Edna were both patients in a mental hospital. One day, while they were walking past the hospital swimming pool, Jim suddenly jumped into the deep end. He sank to the bottom of the pool and stayed there. Edna promptly jumped in to save him. She swam to the bottom and pulled Jim out. When the medical director became aware of Edna's heroic act, he immediately ordered her to be discharged from the hospital. He now considered her to be mentally stable. When he went to tell Edna the news, he said, "Edna I have good news and bad news. The good news is you're being discharged, since you were able to rationally respond to a crisis by jumping in the saving the life of another patient, I have concluded that your act displays sound mindedness. The bad news is, Jim, the patient you saved, hung himself with his bathrobe belt in the bathroom. I am sorry, but he's dead." Edna replied, "He didn't hang himself, I put him there to dry. How soon Did you say I can go home?"
  6. Wait. That's my advice. The PS2 will soon be obsolete, and the Xbox 360 has no competition right now. You should either wait for the PS3 to come out, or consult good ol' Wikipedia on the Opinion free advantages and disadvantages of the systems.

  8. Hi, Well, I'm installing FreeBSD again as part of my monthly OS rotation. This time I want to add FreeBSD to the Windows NT(specifically XP) boot menu. What would I have to do to do this? Thanks for your help.

    Well, that's some good news...
  10. Actually, I tried that. Before this topic was answered to I e-mailed Plasma and he reset my account for me. Everything works now.
  11. I installed the Warez P2P file sharing program. After I noticed an increased amount of popups, I uninstalled the client. Now I still have that Adware called NewDotNet(in the program files directory) in 2 application extensions. When I try to delete them I cannot. Norton nor SpySweeper detect it(norton did, but I accidentally made it ignore it). Can anyone help me remove this from my computer? Your help is appreciated.
  12. I had installed the Workplace Shell for Windows 3.1 on my Windows 2000 computer. After rebooting my Taskbar and Desktop shortcuts were missing, and the workplace shell did not appear. I then opened Explorer via the task manager and followed the uninstall instructions for the WPS and uninstalled it. I still can only see the wallpaper - nothing else. Can anybody help?
  13. I was recently visiting my site after a while of ignoring its existance and I have found a problem - though all the files are still in their proper place(index.php both in the www directory and public html directory with chmod 755), I have found that it still displays HTTP 404 whether I specify index.php or not. Is there a way to fix the problem? I do still have access to cPanelx to fix it if anyone can tell me how I could... Thank you...
