Re: Thirty days tobacco free

I hit the powerball on Saturday's drawing. ONLY the powerball. Got $4. Now, if only I could get a few more zeros on that "4". As to the living longer by a bit of alcohol... well, I still have my one...

Re: Star Trek!!

In order: My personal preference goes:
1 Next Gen
2 TOS
3 DS9
then the rest of them in no particular order. All the series' have really great episodes and really crappy ones.

Star Trek Continues

When one says "fan fiction" one usually doesn't equate it with any semblance of quality, but sometimes the "fans" can surprise you. Such is the case of the brand-new Star Trek Continues...

Re: Tornado hits Oklahoma City area

That's pretty disgusting - the Robertson quote, that is. What's even scarier is that we are still breeding creatures like him and they probably aren't going away any time soon...

Re: what song are you listening to right now?

Never heard of these guys before. They sound a hell of a lot like Slayer - but that's not a bad thing. (No pun intended, BTW)

Suicidal Angels...

No, actually I didn't. I've just stopped trying for the time. Still haven't reformatted. I really was getting a serious headache every night poring over endless youtube vids - each one assuming the...

Re: Major headache!!

The odd thing is that it does run XP. I can open the guest account on the XP Pro partition - I just can't do any maintenance on the HDD, nor can I uninstall any of the bloatware. The system actually...

Re: Major headache!!

I think I know why that program didn't work. Something I never really thought of looking into: This system is *OLD*. It is running on a Celeron 400 mHz (yes, megahertz!) CPU with a 6GB HDD which is...

I used the same tutorial you posted a link to. I got as far as step 7. The page shown on step 8 never shows up. The program stops just short of actually starting. It seems to load OK - up to a point...

I'd been away for a little less than a year and just came back. I said nearly the same thing about being a bit surprised that the site is still alive at all.

If it weren't for all the mosquitoes, I know I'd love Canada. I tend to like cold climates. After living almost 15 years in this preposterous, stinking pressure cooker Canada sounds reeeal nice.

Re: Whats the most disgusting joke you've ever heard?

A hotel went ablaze and all the guests had to evacuate in a hurry. Half the guests were gay the other half were straight. Who got out first?
