Re: Things

I thank you all for your explanations as it relates to "pissing off" and other areas of interest. It has always been my hope to insult, slander, and generally malign not only those I see daily in the states but internationally as well. I am one step closer to attaining that goal. All the b...

Re: Things

I suspect "taking the piss" s a UK expression?

If you are down to only 2, you are in good shape!

I am down to 7 and wonder if i really want to be THAT efficient. I have grown used to the haze and uncertainty.

Monitor Suggestion?

Forgive me in advance if this is the wrong place to post this but I am not sure as to a category in which it might fit. I am looking for another monitor. (I currently have a 20 inch Apple Cinema but the one I want, the Apple Cinema that is 23 inches cost $999.00 US. That is a lot of money.) Just won...

Re: The time travellers wife.

Loved the Time Traveler's Wife but did not actually read it; listened to the 16 CDs (Unabridged, listened twice...) I found it to be a haunting tale that taps into my deepest desires for time travel. To go where I have been; to see, as Mt Serling writes, "the voices of the people and the places...

Honestly, I have not had this much fun in years. I have never had to think in the way that programmers think and eve...

Save My Eyesight?

Hi all: Hi All: I need a quick fix and I was hoping someone might be able to help. In windows, you were able to change the color of your background and I can't figure out how to do that in a Mac. For example, a very white background in "Mail" with black fonts is a bit bright on the eyes a ...

Two Questions

Hi All: I know that many use Firefox on a regular basis so I was wondering... 1) Is there a command or a plug in or whatever that will make it full screen? (Looked through the forums but cant even find the question let alone the answer. Hardly seems like such a left field type of thing...) 2) Are th...
