  1. I suspect she is craving the caffiene from the Mountain Dew. One does not know the power of withdrawal until one is stuck in the hospital for more than a week....
  2. About 23 years ago, my first wife and I lived in a two-story farm house smack in the middle of 35 acres of hay fields. Our bedroom was on the second floor at the end of the house. We had 4 English Walnut trees in our back yard, within a few car lengths of our bedroom window. The wife, wanting to experience that wonderful outdoorsey feeling; went out and bought two peahens and a peacock. She made me build a covered pen to keep them in. Then one day, about a month after having them around, The ex-Missus left the pen door open after feeding the birds. They got out and immediately took u
  3. I was kinda hoping Bill Gates would discover me instead. Hire me to walk his dogs. I ... er.... need the exercise....
  4. My apologies for that. I wish not to appear to be spamming my own interests, so am careful to omit certain facts.
  5. Being an Administrator of another professional forum, I deal with this on a daily basis. As you gain more members, you become under greater pressure to become a convenient one-stop forum to better assist your growing membership. For a few years now, I have audited our membership database and removed those who have not logged on for 6 months. We remain at 33 thousand active members. Yet 85% are lurkers, never posting -- just browsing. So guess who the majority is that you must make happy? Focus. That's what I have learned over the years. Are we maintaining our focus? If not, what do w
  6. What do you think is the #1 MAIN FOCUS of PC Pitstop? Now as you look around the site, ask yourself; has the site strayed from it's MAIN FOCUS?
  7. Well, I feel better knowing that it was a GOOD TOOL clear back in May!
  8. It drives me nuts when I attempt to delete a file or folder only to be told by Windows that some other app or user has locked it or is using it. I solved the problem by using Unlocker, a free utility from http://ccollomb.free.fr/unlocker. I like it when I find little utilities to quickly solve small problems, and love it when I discover they are freeware! Tom
  9. Nice tip ... a great way to fully view your desktop wallpaper. Or hide your icons from wandering eyes, if needed. It's so simple - it'll fool the non-power users.
  10. Hummm ... judging from the quality of this forum, I'd rather suspect that there had to be a better reason for not allowing you to "help people with HJT logs" other than just an 'Admins ego'.
  11. Is this it? http://ninemsn.video.msn.com/v/en-au/req.a...mediaid%3D25301 It requires MS IE and I refuse to load it just to watch a video... those Aussies gotta get with the times and start catering to Firefox.
  12. When I die, I plan on not telling any of you about it!
  13. Please note that the venom from the stinger of a stingray DID NOT kill Steve Irwin as many people are telling each other. The stingray's stinger entered Irwin's chest and pierced his heart, causing cardiac arrest. I'm curious what the heck he did to invoke the stringray to strike at him. No doubt some dumb stunt for the camera... I'll miss that guy. Used to enjoy watching him do rather dumb stunts with dangerous animals. Tom
