A husband went to the sheriff’s department to report
that his wife was missing.

Husband: My wife is missing. She went shopping yesterday and has not come home.

Sergeant: What is her height?

Husband: Gee, I’m not sure. A little over five-feet tall.

Sergeant: Weight?

Husband: Don’t know. Not slim, not really fat.

Sergeant: Color of eyes?

Husband: Never noticed.

Sergeant: Color of hair?

Husband: Changes a couple times a year. Maybe dark brown.

Sergeant: What was she wearing?

Husband: Could have been a skirt or shorts. I don’t remember exactly.

Sergeant: What kind of car did she go in?

Husband: She went in my truck.

Sergeant: What kind of truck was it?

Husband: Brand new 2015 Ford F150 King Ranch 4X4 with eco-boost 5.0L V8 engine special ordered with manual transmission. It has a custom matching white cover for the bed. Custom leather seats and “Bubba” floor mats. Trailering package with gold hitch. DVD with navigation, 21-channel CB radio, six cup holders, and four power outlets. Added special alloy wheels and off-road Michelins. Wife put a small scratch on the drivers door. At this point the husband started choking up.

Sergeant: Don’t worry buddy. We’ll find your truck.

I know you are not in the US but I would consider shipping it to you if you can use it, rather than throwing it in the trash.

Thanks for the offer but mine uses a #78 tri-colour.  smiley

Shame I don't have any black ones left. Both printers did take the same #45 Black.

Then HP (of necessity) got into home/consumer-grade products...and the results are what we live with today.

Still got a Deskjet 932C that churns out mono prints, (colour cartridges too expensive to replace, otherwise it would be printing in colour), after ~12 years.

Occasionally eats a sheet of paper but apart from that it doesn't seem to want to die ... which is annoying as it's getting a bit harder to find black cartridges now, (thank the stars for China and ebay Grin ).

I had a Deskjet 720C, which I loved and used till all the rubber rotted off the carriage belt and the last remaining bare thread snapped.

The ink cartridges were quite expensive, but they lasted a long time. I think I only had to replace mine about once per year, and that's with my daughter doing a TON of color printing. That printer got her through both middle & high school on about 6 sets of cartridges.

I believe I still have a color cartridge from mine, unused, still sealed in its package. I am still looking for a home for it, in case your printer can use it. I know you are not in the US but I would consider shipping it to you if you can use it, rather than throwing it in the trash.

- i didn't know where else to post PETMANsmiley

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mclbVTIYG8E" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mclbVTIYG8E</a>

Wider screen:   https://www.youtube.com/watch?x-yt-ts=1421782837&v=mclbVTIYG8E&x-yt-cl=84359240

Perhaps this video can clear up some confusion on the purpose of the PETMAN robot. It is NOT, as that page you linked to suggests, a battlefield robot. It's used for testing protective clothing.

Quote
The PETMAN robot was developed by Boston Dynamics with funding from the DoD CBD program. It is used to test the performance of protective clothing designed for hazardous environments. The video shows initial testing in a chemical protection suit and gas mask. PETMAN has sensors embedded in its skin that detect any chemicals leaking through the suit. The skin also maintains a micro-climate inside the clothing by sweating and regulating temperature. Partners in developing PETMAN were MRIGlobal, Measurement Technology Northwest, Smith Carter, SRD, CUH2A, and HHI.

Not too sure how she would feel about you adding that beast to her photo, but it gave me a good laugh and made me think of a hell-cat I used to have, that you might think looked like that from the stories by people he attacked.

...unless you are trying to make the site responsive. That's still a lot of work if you are not relying on some sort of CSS framework, which I would not use on a single page site of static content.

^^ Amusing, but probably unlikely. Those men are all pulling a wry face and appear to be looking down - presumably at where their respective brains are located. The dog, on the other hand, is not looking down or anywhere except at the camera, and anyway looks more like a puppy and would not be mature enough to mate at that age. He is probably merely pulling a wry face because someone photoshopped him or something tastes funny in his mouth. Maybe he has just eaten the household budgerigar and is wondering what to do with the feathers. You'd probably have to prise open his jaws to be sure.

Way to take the funny right out of a joke. I thought this was the silly humor thread, not the true stuff thread. Please excuse me if I posted it in the wrong place.

Can these games be played offline?   When looking at 'Enchanted Realm', my first thought was "I wonder how many people play cross-gender?"

"I want a computer that will drive them crazy. I want a computer that will drive them mad." Number#1 song of mad scientists.  Apologies to John Cougar Mellencamp .

I believe they are all social games to be played online.

Here's the scam (seems like it is targeted at the less internet savvy age 12-14 script kiddie wannabe demographic).

They promise what that group wants, but have no intention on actually delivering it. Instead, they present a set of options, that no matter which is chosen (to get the code) they make money. You visit a page, install software, or anything else they tell you to do, and they make money...but you will never get a code, nor will anyone's Facebook account actually be hacked.

That's the whole scam, in a nutshell.

You would not believe how many times these kids fell for it and filled out that form. And if they would fall for it back then, kids would just as easily fall for something similar today. The difference in this case would be that instead of someone using the form to alert the intended victim of that kid's intent, they are using it as a money making opportunity, presenting them with sponsored activities.

Sure.

I'm no expert, but maybe I've at least made it to "junior high" as a kiddie sniffing out trouble.  : )

So I did my digging just to save some of the raw click-work for everyone else, just to get it out there, which your post cap-stones.

I was carefully evaluating options as I went along. To borrow the old joke, I was looking at :
1. Do X.
2. Do Y.
3. Do Z
4. ?????

A very similar "structural scam engine" could have gone a couple of ways. I did notice when I rebooted today a couple new things are also there on bootup, so later I'll have to go unhook them. But a stray extra toolbar didn't seem too bad to deal with. I took the guess that I wasn't going to end up with a botnet zombie node and it looks like I didn't ... I think. (Do botnet zombie comps still look like they work for the user?)

So of the several "scam templates", I was mostly interested in shedding some light on "which menu item off the list did they go for".

And at least the news is out, so we know that former good site is in trouble, and maybe if he can ever rebuild his brand, he can just re-stick the content on a new site and learn his lesson and not sell it this time, or give it to someone else.

We have 2 different scummy entities here. "Scummy Webmaster" and "Scummy Developer".

Scummy Webmaster, more than likely, they didn't create the software or the installer you installed on your computer. They most likely got paid for the referral when you installed it.  This is really slimy affiliate ads/referrals to less than stellar 3rd parties that promise payment for every referral...aka Scummy Developer.

Scummy Webmaster buys a site with decent traffic (FreewareBB) for the purpose of using it to make posts that directs traffic to their scammy sites, like hackfacebookpass, where they do the referring to a 3rd party (Scummy Developer), promising you something they have no intention on delivering (the code). You click an option, any option, and Scummy Webmaster gets paid. End of story with them.

Anything extra you end up with on your computer from installing anything, is the fault of the Scummy Developer that is paying them to send them the referrals.

I don't need to do any click work, no looking into who owns what domain name, what web hosting company they use, etc. looking for anything. I know how they think. I have dealt with their kind before, on a personal level. They want the easy money, which comes from gullible script kiddie wannabes actually believing if they click an offer they will get that code that was promised. They probably have another site that promises a free iPad...and another that promises free WoW gold...etc., etc., etc., which they plan on making posts linking to them, on FreewareBB, in the months to come.

That's the whole scam, in a nutshell.

A friend of mine once set up a similar set of pages, after getting tired of explaining why script kiddie wannabes were never going to learn how to hack Hotmail/Yahoo in his programming chat room. Except his pages actually did do something, just not what the script kiddie wannabe was wanting or expecting. It had a form on it asking for 2 e-mail addresses (theirs and their intended victim). Then it told them that the next time their victim logged in, they would be e-mailed their victim's password. What it actually did was immediately send the intended victim an e-mail alerting them that there was someone interested in hacking their Hotmail/Yahoo account, and giving them the e-mail address of the script kiddie wannabe that filled in the form.  Cool

You would not believe how many times these kids fell for it and filled out that form. And if they would fall for it back then, kids would just as easily fall for something similar today. The difference in this case would be that instead of someone using the form to alert the intended victim of that kid's intent, they are using it as a money making opportunity, presenting them with sponsored activities.

It's the easiest way to provide a hard to miss visual indicator to my family that I am working and should not be bothered.

I originally wanted a tiara with a skull (bother me & you die), but couldn't find one that was reasonably priced, unless I wanted this one.

Hi there!

I have very large blue eyes, I'm chunky, have long hair, glasses, I wear bunny ears while I am working, and I am so pale that my skin glows in the dark. I don't wear dresses, high heels, or makeup, but it's not because I am a tomboy. I just like being comfortable.

Everything else you can base on your impression of me or just make it up. Have fun!  smiley

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?

You don't need to have the card on you. Walgreens lets you enter your phone number into their little credit/debit card thingy. I do it all the time. Also, some of your purchases will earn you points (some, a lot of points), which are valued at $0.01 each and can be applied to future purchases. I am almost at the $10.00 level, at which point I'll cash them in. (I could do it now, but I want to wait)

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

I used to be in the top 10, but then I had to start spending my time trying to earn a living.  undecided

But I did manage to solve over 30,000 support tickets since September 2013.  Cool
