Sir, it's not an offence to let your cat eat your bacon. Okay? And we don't arrest cats, I'm very sorry.

Thanks Tom.

Of course, now my boss has it in his head to do it in VBScript.

eta: OK, my boss says I can try that in perl. (He likes to write very short, concise programs, so I'd think that perl would be right up his ally.)

How 'bout them there computers?

I think they're a fad.

I predict that one day, computers will be as big as a house, and so expensive that only the five richest kings of Europe will be able to afford one.

Why doesn't this work?

What is even happening?

Hey are there other better free blogging outfits out there besides blogger? Something that would be relativey easy to use and would require minimal coding knowledge.

WordPress, maybe?

You always do this. We get tipsy, and you take advantage of my love of the scientific method.

Why doesn't this work?

So, did this person really do what they said they did, or is it a hoaxer who did it to a card he'd already fried because he forgot to attach a power cord to the fan's connector? ;)

Sooo, would anyone have any suggestions as to where a girl might look to find a site to download music videos that have been, say, airing on MTV2 and so on, but are not yet available from the iTunes store? I understand if no one wants to post that information, but helpful hints sent to my profile addy would be keen.

Hey. New board.

WordPress, maybe?

This would be my suggestion. I've never used one of the blogs they give for free, but I installed it on my own server and it was easy as pie to use once I had it set up. No coding at all. And it's fairly professional looking.

S to the A -- using they/them pronouns!

Jilli, you can usually find torrents for such things. Isohunt would probably have them if you did a search there.

Unrelatedly, what criteria would you guys use to purchase a new computer? I have two laptops; the Dell is almost three years old, and the Powerbook is about five. Both of them still work, no hardware problems; even the Mac is using 10.4 with no major lag time, which I think is pretty impressive given its age and specs. But they are both a little older, and both get bogged down with the memory requirements of current software/oses. Is that enough of a reason to look into upgrading to a new machine?
