    Agreed.


    Morning, Dan. Two days in a row you're here? It's amazing.

    Well, I'm off to take ready the little soaps for school.

    Be back later. Maybe.

    I have no idea how you make it. I just get it from the store.

    How you serve it...
    I put it in coffee. Or put 7Up in it sometimes. You can use it as a mixer, too. Whiskey is good in it. Um... I can't think of anything else. Normally, though, you just have it plain. Like milk. But it's pretty rich. Really only all I can tolerate is about a splash. My stomach does flip flops with more than that.
    I was hoping someone would have a recipe for eggnog. We don't have it here so I cannot follow your 'example' and buy it from the store...

    I face yet another full day in a bad place. Oh well, at least I'm not a Chicago Bear Offensive Lineman--those guys are really bad.

    Ya' know... alligator's pretty tasty too - and the best meat comes from the tail...

    Dragons are somewhat related to alligators.

    Just sayin'...

    I need a new computer. This thing has gotten so slow and every anti-bot/clean-up program I run doesn't help.

    Back up your files. Wipe. Reformat. That's the only thing that works for me.

    If you can't afford to upgrade to a newer operating system even reinstalling your old one could help.

    Memory sticks are reasonably priced, too, I think. You know, little boosters to help the thing run faster.

    Some options instead of getting an entirely new computer.

    My desktop is a 2003.

    It crawls through the internet. I only use for work though, so it's not really that big of a deal. For any actual internetting I use my laptop.

    You might be able to find a good deal this weekend, Ted. Amazon, BestBuy, and Office Depot have all hit my inbox this week with sale emails. I haven't looked at them, so I can't say what exactly is on sale though.

    Hope you can figure something out, Ted. I got mine off QVC so I could pay for it on a monthly payment plan. It worked for me at the time.

    <serves up round of eggnog "additive" for all the Hounds>

    Technically, you pour the eggnog in one glass, the additive in another, set the one with the eggnog aside, and actually drink the other.

    I need to add a 4GB memory stick (I have 2 plus a 2 GB and will have another 8, 16, or 32 this weekend - I have around a terabyte of storage space available as well and might pick up a 1 or 2 TB portable drive this weekend) to my desktop at work and let the desktop use it as virtual memory. I keep forgetting you can do that.

    They gave me administrator privileges on my computer at work too so I now have GIMP on that machine as well (and will soon have Dragon Naturally speaking as soon as I can find the disk for it).

    My boss's goal, which he informed me about today, is for me to have all the time studies and setup forms for Tge machine shop updated in 5-6 weeks. Oh, joy.

    Sheesh.

    I think my parents are going to be in a similar boat. I gave them my old iBook when I upgraded (Dad doesn't need anything faster or fancier, and by the time he needs to upgrade, so will I - so he'll get this one), and while it was running fine, my niece's stellar POS of a live-in baby daddy spilled an ice tea all over it.

    I am taking it to the Mac store in Pittsburgh tomorrow, largely for the formality of having it declared DOA.


    ... And as an excuse to hit what has been promised to be a very awesome tea shop.

    You know, I've had Microsoft send me 3 updates in 72 hours. I loaded all of them. After the last one, I rebooted and ran a bot killer, which came back clean. Now it's running okay. I still have no idea what program is constantly loading stuff. I've run all the cleaning/anti-bot apps I can find.

    If I can get a boot disk, I'll be doing Soapy's option because it basically all I can afford right now. I can't wait until I win the lottery.
