  1. Time to kick the can down the street on this very long and old thread. So how old are you? Any birthdays out there?
  2. Just turned 61 this past Wednesday 9/28/11!
  3. I have a Panasonic stereo upstairs with a beautiful backlit green and white dial and a REAL walnut wood case and matching speakers, sounds fantastic, bought it in 1970 for a whopping $99.99 plus the matching 8 track player for $49.99 both still work great. Only problem is my over 100 tapes tend to come apart at that silver strip that held the tape together. Also have well over 100 cassettes, 3 still working VCRs (I also can work on them if necessary) , boxes of VCR movies plus you can find them really cheap now.....just not new titles BUT I still can record shows when I want to do so.

  5. Geezzz, I was 55 when this thread started, I'll be 61 later this month....time flies when you're having fun.
  6. Obviously this is not just all about 9/11/01.
  7. Well let's see, Clinton, Bush II, Obama, maybe even earlier than these three presidents, why was the USA after bin-Laden and Al-Qaeda? (see list) People all over the world better be very concerned with terrorism. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timeline_of_al-Qaeda_attacks 1 Early 1990s 1.1 February 1993 World Trade Center 1.2 1994 Bojinka, Philippine Airlines Flight 434 2 1998 U.S.-embassy bombings 3 2000 USS Cole bombing 4 September 11, 2001, attacks 5 October 2002 Bali bombings 6 November 2003 Istanbul attacks 7 February 2004 SuperFerry 14 bombing 8 March 11, 2004 Mad
  8. So was I, but no gift just some mushy words and well wishes on the event.
  9. ........The nominees to the science curriculum review team are absolutely ridiculous: They don't believe in evolution -- and some of them admit that they don't even believe in science at all!....... Oh "god", or oh geezzzz or whatever. Just shows you there are idiots in every state, every country on earth. You can't even reason or comment on that.
  10. So very sorry to hear of this and wishing you all the best.....mjp
  11. I've stayed on Lake Shore Drive, nice place in late spring, summer, fall. We've been really lucky in our area of NE Ohio, kind of missed all the real bad stuff. And good luck to our Aussie friends, they've had a tough go of it down under.
  12. ........It's an adult site, and if I click on it, it goes to the site. Just can't figure out how to get rid of it...... Might need more than just a simple cleaning, also just curious have you run a good registry cleaner?
  13. Oh yeah, from Maine to maybe Virginia there must be ?? different ones. I'm from the midwest OHIO, we have a lot of successful call centers, I heard it's because we are very understandable....we have NO accent at all.
  14. Or maybe just.....How to Make a Telemarketer Go Away 1. If they want to loan you money, tell them you just filed for bankruptcy and you could sure use some money. Ask, "How long can I keep it? Do I have to ever pay it back, or is it like the other money I borrowed before my bankruptcy?" 2. If you get one of those pushy people who won\'t shut up, just listen to their sales pitch. When they try to close the sale, tell them that you\'ll need to go get your credit card. Then, just set the phone down and go do laundry, shopping or whatever. See how long that commission based scum waits for
  15. Ways to Terrorize a Telemarketer Tell them to talk VERY SLOWLY, because you want to write EVERY WORD down. Insist that the caller is really your buddy Leon, playing a joke. "Come on Leon, cut it out! Seriously, Leon, how's your momma?" Tell the telemarketer you are busy at the moment and ask them if they will give you their HOME phone number so you can call them back. When the telemarketer explains that they cannot give out their HOME number, you say "I guess you don't want anyone bothering you at home, right?" The telemarketer will agree and you say, "Now you know how I feel
  16. Well to all our UK friends, we here in the States have an immensely popular and fairly successful DNC list, "Do Not Call", you sign up now for life if you want. I also got a "Privacy Manager" through my phone company I pay for AND I LOVE IT! No unlisted numbers get through, it goes to the manager, most hang up right there. Our friends have our "pass-through ID number". Another trick, tell them you have to run but call you back on your other number.....and give them your local police number, gets rid of many pests quick.
  17. First I like when people express themselves, but not when the primary motive is "just to cause trouble". I'd find something else to do with your time and energy. Also I don't know if this "Red and Blue" is a 100% Title IX activity recieving Federal finacial assistance. (a simplification of IX) ......Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a United States law enacted on June 23, 1972. In 2002 it was renamed the Patsy T. Mink Equal Opportunity in Education Act, in honor of its principal author Congresswoman Mink, but is most commonly known simply as Title IX. The law states that
  18. Just FYI, I needed to download SKYPE for the IM to chat with a friend....and it also loaded Chrome, not a bad extra! Really nice for all the GOOGLE stuff, simple layout, easy access to maps and I've barely used it.
  19. So, offically how old are you DennisD?
  20. Hey that sounds OK! And maybe we need to drag up the Piriform Classic "HOW OLD ARE TOU THREAD"!
  21. There is a lot of good advice here, as usual. I've used just the Norton AV since 1999 then also added ZoneAlarm FW, Registry Mechanic, Spybot S&D, Adaware, CCleaner (still do), CoolWeb, and I've tried a few others. I also get regular newsletters from PCWorld and PCMag on a variety of subjects, security, downloads, news, etc. Their general opinion is that the better (i.e. paid) AV programs overall do better in their tests. My results were OK.....but a buddy has told me for years he gets a great deal on NAV 360 every year after Thanksgiving. ------------------------ Well I tr
  22. Just one note on favorites, or any file, do you have an offsite or off computer backup? In 2004 I lost my HD, and everything.....bummer. After that I actually manually copied all my favorites to disc, kind of time consuming, needs updates, etc. NOW I just went to an offsite backup, Carbonite for EVERYTHING for about $5/month, love it! Just FYI: Carbonite online backup saves time and money, provides extra protection for your files, and makes getting your files back fast and easy. No media or expensive equipment to buy. And no shuffling through stacks of CDs or DVDs. No need t
  23. .....from mjp to all of you!
  24. A little detective work, have a good 35th.
  25. Just a thought, I wanted a few old classic movies on VHS, yes I still have THREE working VHS machines, went on Amazon and found them from $0.01 to $0.99 plus s&h or less than $3 each.....and I didn't even check ebay. I'm sure some rat-packer like me has boxes of new floppies around. (I have a box or two somewhere.)
