    [t1rhino]These dust bunnies are breeding like crazy! Every week I have to clean out my case.
    [kanezfan]I've heard other peeps report success with pantyhose.
    [edcentric]I tried pantyhose, but they were so uncomfortable that I had to take them off.

    "Beaver...an industrious creature found in the Canadian wild, on one side of the Canadian nickel and .... errr....well they're just everywhere dammit. (This may not translate well internationally as some people, like Shorty, may probably uses "Beaver" as some quaint UK slang for something like "pork chops" or "nipping off to have a pint.")

    Hahah I don't think it's worth $550 for Bothered to get rid of the spyware... Unless he's completely eccentric, filthy rich, and just plain potty. Well, we can probably rule out the filthy rich part, eh?

    There was a command to poke a value into a register that would heat up some element on the motherboard until it popped, destroying your computer. So, you would write a program like:

    10 POKE 2343,12
    20 GOTO 10

    (I forget the exact values)

    And run that, and in about 20 minutes, poof. Bye bye $2500 computer.<i>.. <a href="http://www.short-media.com/forum/showthread.php?postid=40366#post40366"; target="_new">primesuspect on the Commodore PET</a> </I>

    <strong>General Keebler:</strong> ummm... is there a bathroom at sarcnet?<br>
    <strong>primesuspect:</strong> No Keebs, there's no bathroom. We usually piss over the fence onto I-94.. It's fun to see the cars swerve to avoid it, but sometimes they crash into each other and then we have to run like bitches, and that's no fun <img src=http://www.short-media.com/forum/images/smilies/frown.gif>;

    The dye that is used in recordable media will eventually fade. It's inevitable. However, optical is your best bet. Do what everyone else says, and re-copy it every year or two until some kick ass new gelatinous bacterial DNA storage comes out. Or the storage that teleports your data to be etched into stone on the moon. Or whatever.

    It was nice to come home and smoke a bowl.... of Arabian Tabbakie... it just smells so SWEET! Like a Fig Neuton! We almost had an urge to eat it, but we couldn't read the writing on the box so figured it may not be too healthy(as if it has stopped us in the past).

    Also, be aware that "brains" or "smarts" have little or nothing to do with internetworking. Today's workplace is all about good communication and problem-solving skills. You might possess a CCNA, CCNP and even a CCIE but I can tell you this -- while these qualifications are good to have tucked away under your belt -- they come way behind how you communicate and work with others and how you react to unrelenting stress and pressure. Moronic and infantile behavior is not tolerated in the workplace, period.
    Network Engineer or Witless Wonder? Your choice.....
