  1. cholla : You hit the nail on the head. Great piece. If the US did not purchase any oil from the Middle East for about two ( 2 ) months I wonder what the situation would be there. Do they have a strategic storage site available ?? Are there that many 55 gal. drums available to handle their output??? What happened to " Oil For Food " ? $ 70 /bushel for wheat, corn, soy beans, etc. sounds about right. Or is that too low ???
  2. WOULDN'T IT BE GREAT TO TURN ON THE TV AND HEAR ANY U.S. PRESIDENT, DEMOCRAT OR REPUBLICAN GIVE THE FOLLOWING SPEECH? My Fellow Americans: As you all know, the defeat of Iraq regime has been completed. Since congress does not want to spend any more money on this war, our mission in Iraq is complete. This morning I gave the order for a complete removal of all American forces from Iraq. This action will be complete within 30 days. It is now to begin the reckoning. Before me, I have two lists. One list contains the names of countries which have stood by our side during the Iraq conflict. This list is short. The United Kingdom, Spain, Bulgaria, Australia, and Poland are some of the countries listed there. The other list contains everyone not on the first list. Most of the world's nations are on that list. My press secretary will be distributing copies of both lists later this evening. Let me start by saying that effective immediately, foreign aid to those nations on List 2 ceases immediately and indefinitely. The money saved during the first year alone will pretty much pay for the costs of the Iraqi war. The American people are no longer going to pour money into third world Hellholes and watch those government leaders grow fat on corruption. Need help with a famine? Wrestling with an epidemic? Call France. In the future, together with Congress, I will work to redirect this money toward solving the vexing social problems we still have at home. On that note, a word to terrorist organizations. Screw with us and we will hunt you down and eliminate you and all your friends from the face of the earth. Thirsting for a gutsy country to terrorize? Try France, or maybe China. I am ordering the immediate severing of diplomatic relations with France, Germany, and Russia. Thanks for all your help, comrades. We are retiring from NATO as well. Bon chance, mes amis. I have instructed the Mayor of New York City to begin towing the many UN diplomatic vehicles located in Manhattan with more than two unpaid parking tickets to sites where those vehicles will be stripped, shredded and crushed. I don't care about whatever treaty pertains to this. You creeps have tens of thousands of unpaid tickets. Pay those tickets tomorrow or watch your precious Benzes, Beamers and limos be turned over to some of the finest chop shops in the world. I love New York. A special note to our neighbors. Canada is on List 2. Since we are likely to be seeing a lot more of each other, you folks might want to try not pissing us off for a change. Mexico is also on List 2. President Fox and his entire corrupt government really need an attitude adjustment. I will have a couple extra tank and infantry divisions sitting around. Guess where I am going to put em? Yep, border security. Oh, by the way, the United States is abrogating the NAFTA treaty - starting now. We are tired of the one-way highway. Immediately, we'll be drilling for oil in Alaska - which will take care of this country's oil needs for decades to come. If you're an environmentalist who opposes this decision, I refer you to List 2 above: pick a country and move there. They care. It is time for America to focus on its own welfare and its own citizens. Some will accuse us of isolationism. I answer them by saying, "darn tootin." Nearly a century of trying to help folks live a decent life around the world has only earned us the undying enmity of just about everyone on the planet. It is time to eliminate hunger in America. It is time to eliminate homelessness in America. To the nations on List 1, a final thought. Thank you guys. We owe you and we won't forget. To the nations on List 2, a final thought: You might want to learn to speak Arabic. God bless America. Thank you and good night. If you can read this, thank a teacher. If you are reading it in English, thank a soldier. :D :D :D

  9. If you put it in there and leave it alone ( no modifies, deletes, etc. ) Everything ought to be lined up nicely. All defrag does mostly is put the ducks in a row. Someone else may feel differently about it tho.

  18. Short history. Downloaded Zip file, unzipped and burned to CD. All the files on CD have a uha extension. Tried Google search and came up that I needed WinUHA on my computer ( I think ). So - downloaded it. Not sure how to use WinUHA on the CD files. Any info - how to, where to read, what not to do, etc. - would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance, Jim

    This is for us OLD TIMERS - altho some of the young-uns could take notice Virus Alert!!! This is a dangerous virus being passed electronically, orally and by hand. This virus is called Worm-Overload-Recreational-Killer (WORK). If you receive WORK from any of your colleagues, your boss, or anyone else via any means DO NOT TOUCH IT!! This virus will wipe out your private life completely. If you should come into contact with WORK put your jacket on and take two good friends to the nearest pub. Purchase the antidote known as Work-Isolator-Neutralizer-Extractor (WINE). Take the antidote repeatedly until WORK has been completely eliminated from your system. You should forward this warning to 5 friends. If you do not have 5 friends, you have already been infected and WORK is controlling your life. Update: After extensive testing it has been concluded that Best-Equivalent-Extractor-Remedy (BEER) may be substituted for WINE but may require a more generous application

    Hey cholla: I beat you in quitting drugs. Mine was nicotine. In '82 a Neurosurgeon at Tulane in New Orleans told me if I didn't quit cigarettes that real, real soon I was gonna be dead or worse; be a veggie in a bed drooling with no chance of recovery. Guess what !!! I believed him and quit that day in Feb. 1982 after 25 years of smoking. Cold Turkey!!! TIA's are not funny !!! TIA's are mini-strokes - not funny at all. Proud for you for quitting!!!

    Shug7272: The one I worked at was a medium security prison. Fairly laid back. But it did have it's moments. I spent 5 years in the cellblocks - little different there. Really not much physical work for your pay. RN's do OK, LPN's fair. Louisiana isn't known for high wages. I had good people to work with. Thats what I miss when I retired. All in all pretty good - depending on the warden.

    Altoidz: Any particular drug in question??? I worked in a state prison nearby for 9 1/2 years and drugs figured in on why the majority of the inmates were there. Population was almost 1400. So - that might tell you a little about drugs without being very specific. JUST SAY NO !!!!!! DON"T GET IN A CAR WITH STRANGERS !!!!
  23. Here's something a little strange. I get ready to do a Download test on testmy. I go tools, internet options, delete files, cookies, history - then do a 2992 download. This is representative of my usual results: :::.. Download Stats ..::: Connection is:: 1156 Kbps about 1.16 Mbps (tested with 2992 kB) Download Speed is:: 141 kB/s Tested From:: https://testmy.net (Server 1) Test Time:: 2006/04/17 - 4:17pm Bottom Line:: 20X faster than 56K 1MB Download in 7.26 sec Tested from a 2992 kB file and took 21.203 seconds to complete Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1; FunWebProducts; Media Center PC 3.0; .NET CLR 1.0.3705; FDM) Diagnosis: Looks Great : 18.2 % faster than the average for host (direcpc.com) Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-KS7TCDFA6 If I'm just tooling along and decide to do a download test ( 2992 ) - I'll just pull up testmy, go to download test - and usually get something like this : :::.. Download Stats ..::: Connection is:: 824 Kbps about 0.82 Mbps (tested with 2992 kB) Download Speed is:: 101 kB/s Tested From:: https://testmy.net (Server 1) Test Time:: 2006/04/17 - 4:21pm Bottom Line:: 14X faster than 56K 1MB Download in 10.14 sec Tested from a 2992 kB file and took 29.736 seconds to complete Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1; FunWebProducts; Media Center PC 3.0; .NET CLR 1.0.3705; FDM) Diagnosis: May need help : running at only 84.25 % of your hosts average (direcpc.com) Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-HKCPFZS08 Then I go to " MySpeed Bandwidth Test " and get ( if my time of day is good ) something along these figures. D/L 750 - 850 U/L 135 - 150 If I go to tools, internet options, delete files, cookies, history - while still on " MySpeed Bandwidth Test " I still get the same : D/L 750 - 850 U/L 135 - 150 Did a 72MB D/L last night - averaged about 103KB/s for the duration No download manager, nothing that I know of. Just a weird computer I guess
