Heh.  This reminds me of an old Dos utility that allowed graphics card memory to be "stolen" and used as expanded memory when in video "text mode."  I imagine someone used the pae patch for some database or other software that needed the memory space.  It sounds like a situation where there's no budget for hardware but there is excess software development time available.  IOW, I suspect somebody got a graduate student to cook this up to jury rig some task that had to be finished.

I'm with Shades.  It likely will cause more grief than joy.  smiley

While waiting for the resolution of this domain issue I registered another and just forwarded it to ILikeFree's page he made for me.

I appreciate your standard input.  There's just no substitute for it.

The problem with Walgreens is that none of their sale prices apply if you don't have one of their member cards.

The whole hing with the cards is to be deliberately inconvenient.  With the sales systems they have now there should be a "would you like to be entered in our discount program and get some filers in the mail etc..?" and if you check Yes, that's it.  If you check No you can change your mind at any purchase.  As soon as the things sees your payment method it knows who you are.  Why do they have to scan a bar code off a card except to piss you off if you don't have the card on you?

First time I paid with a credit card in Marshalls the clerk checked my ID and looked at the card.  Now I just swipe and that's that.

I remember for a time every little shop in my town had a card with something free after ten purchases.  I had a wallet full of these stupid cards for clerks to punch with a paper punch.  Super inconvenient.  After a time I just took the hit on missing the freebies.  It was worth it.

Isn't that the Walmart-application computer?!?  -- nice  smiley

I just figured she ripped it trying it on.  The old anti-theft spycam in the changing room shot.

Either that or it's a new design for those too lazy to unbutton their pants when using the commode?

Maybe this just shows that Wal-Mart is ripping (off) its customers...

I always thought Walgreens had over-priced instant coffee; that is until i went to Walmart.
Same brand and quantity but Walmart wanted about three bucks more than Walgreens.
'Save money, live better'?  yea.. right.  Grin

Somehow I don't think I'd accept any Folgers Crystals from this woman!  Wink

also...if gandalf can blast hundreds of orcs away with his ball of light from his staff, why doesn't he just do it in the beginning of every major battle...or just repeatedly?

That would be cheating.  Too easy.  smiley

Along that line, what drives me nuts about Vampire films or TV shows is after all the bragging they do about "I'm 800 years old" and "I'm 2000 years old" etc..  Somebody pokes 'em with a sharp stick and they pop.  If it's that easy to kill 'em they must have lived for 2000 years by hiding in a cave.  The other thing is the bursting into flames in sunlight.  Bram Stoker's Dracula didn't have that problem.  At least in the movie The Breed they walked around in the day time, but wore sunglasses.  smiley

I thought the glacially slo-mo "death of Boromir" sequence in LOTR set a new record.

Yeah, I was invoking all the telekinetic powers at my disposal to try to shut him up.  After all that for a traitor did Thorondor even get a line?  The poor bird didn't even get union scale for saving the day.  smiley

That's a lot of thumb-twiddling time.

My brother worked in DEC support.  He liked to play chess against the computer to pass the time.  But back then there was stuff like CompuServe rather than the web.  Probably not so cheap to post.  Besides, unless he needed an answer to a problem he told me he liked to stay in "read only mode."  smiley

^Very nice dancer there. Too bad it's so hard to tell.

40hz rant time! tellme tellme tellme

...

It's true that dance can be very dramatic. But that doesn't make it a drama - which most people who make movies and videos simply can't seem to grasp.

***end rant***

I think they trained at the MTV school of film production.  More important than content is shifting the shot every couple of seconds to force the observer to refocus.  Supposedly this keeps people watching even though nothing good is shown.  The trick is old now.  I wish they'd think up a new gimmick.  smiley

Edit:  Fortunately it's not 2015 yet as I've pointed this out at least a dozen times on DC.  New Years res. is to let it and similar rest.  smiley

Well, all statistics can be found on the stats page (hidden in the 'Forum Stats' section near the bottom of the forum front-page), where one can also see that 40hz is the number 3 top-poster (right after mouser and renegade) cheesy

If they have stats on repeating yourself I'm probably at the top.  I tend to hammer the same complaints/observations.  My NY resolution should be to move to new vistas instead of 1360x786.  smiley

I like the ones with pics posted, generally.  The ones where misspellings change the sense of the item reminds me of the Tonight Show routine where viewers supposedly submit funny blurbs.  I know Jay Lenno carried it on after Carson.  I haven't watched the new Tonight Show.  But I doubt they throw popular bits away.  smiley

I was still in college when I saw (and got excited) for the first LOTR trailer.  Damn.  It actually bookends my entire career so far.

It seemed to take forever to get a decent version.  When I finally watched the trilogy it was like some burden had been removed(like maybe throwing a ring into Mount Doom?)  Now I feel like I can ignore LOTR stuff for the duration.  smiley

The analogous situation was the Atlas Shrugged movie part I.  Except in this case I have no desire to see the remaining installments.  Talk about a lackluster rendition of the story!  It was like someone traversed a checklist of everything that had to be there, with no feeling about any one item in particular.  What a waste.  I watched the entire flick waiting for something to happen.  Nothing did.  Sad

embarassed

I observ i can't find the link.

Perhaps you don't facilitate the transit or visits tk requires.


I'm not sure but App will likely find out what's up with it.  There's another site of the same name, different domain, which is also not loading.  Could be coincidence or maybe they think my site is related, which it isn't.  Time will tell.

One thing though, I can see the downside of putting links in programs.  It makes a lot of work for not much utility when things change.

On the plus side web is really cheap now.  If I need to do my own again it should only cost a few bucks a month.   Thmbsup

I say this because I'm sure we've both been in situations where someone was throwing their weight around to get something really stupid (like a 3 character password) put in place.

Um, don't tell me.  They wanted to put "God" like in the movie Hackers?



How about Sony keeping a list of important passwords in a file protected with the word "password" if the reports I saw were correct?

When you think of it that may be bulletproof.  The prompt usually says "Enter password here" and we know nobody every follows directions.  Wink

For reasons not yet known milesaheadsoftware.tk seems to be deactivated.

For the time being, most of my freeware may be downloaded using this Softpedia Page

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Edit:  Also any not on Softpedia may be found in this index:
MilesAhead download index

Edit2:  I think there are still a couple on Softpedia that are not listed anywhere else, like Tray for opening and closing the optical drive tray.  So the Softpedia link is still worth a look.  Plus the files are hosted there.  If given the option use Download from Softpedia Secure Site US or something to that effect.  Softpedia has been very generous afa hosting my files and removing dead external links etc..
