Here in the UK, when it comes to using your phone whilst driving, we're hardcore.

Whoa. That is hardcore.... and on the money, too.

It makes me angry when I see people using their phones while driving.... cuz they are taking risks not only with their property and lives... but mine and everyone else on the road.

I can see to a degree using speakerphone or a handsfree unit to talk while in motion (though dialing the number while in motion is bad, doing it while at a stop is more or less ok)... but texting?

Thats just negligent and irresponsible.

Amen to the folks who made and distributed that video Smile

Try driving down the motorway and seeing the car your overtaking being drove by a guy sat behind a laptop.... ... me and the wifey followed behind with OUR hazards on to warn everyone else... wifey made the call to the police as I was driving, next junction they swamped him (still on his laptop)...... and he didn't even notice until he nearly hit the police car in front! ..... .. ....

Might not have you beat, but it's on par; inthecorridors was almost whacked a couple of weeks ago by a cop who was texting while rolling down the center of one of the city's main streets. And I mean in the uniform, cruiser, and everything; attention totally on his thumbs.

Alternate uses for those bottled waters you may have sitting in the freezer since that last heatwave during the past summer....

Strapping them around your computer tower so the sucker might cool down enough that you can touch it with bare hands...

If you have the users manual, or you know (or can read off the mainboard itself) the make and model of the mainboard.... you can go to the manufacturer's website and look for the "Restore to factory defaults" jumper. Just move or remove the jumper as instructed, and reboot the machine and all settings should be corrected.

EDIT: you will want to navigate the site to find the board model and then hopefully they will have screenshots of the board itself with various important parts highlighted/labelled... thats where you want to find the afore mentioned jumper.

Sometimes all you have to do on older boards is just remove the little CMOS battery and all the BIOS stuff will be erased. It should then reload the factory settings on reboot.

If the BIOS itself is stored in EEPROMS, and those eeproms have been somehow borked.... I hate to say it, but yer gonna need more than a floppy drive to fix it... usually you end up getting a new board in those situations.

addendum: after you move or remove the jumper in question, and reboot the machine to rest the BIOS settings.... be sure to power it down and put the jumper back where it was originally so that the corrected settings will persist.... otherwise the damn thing will reset itself with each reboot, and no changes you make after that will be saved on the next reboot Razz

Suck is...going on my 12th hour of homework today, now trying to wrap my head around 'related rates' math problems. Me head bad hurt, feel stupid.

Twenty minutes ago, in the background, I heard a cruise ship commercial that uses the "I don't want to work today, I want to bang on these drums all day" music". <sigh>

See, banging a drum all day never sounded that fun to me. I think I'd actually rather go to work. Then, at least I could illicitly view the Aenea forums while I'm there (which is... erm... totally *not* what I'm doing right now)!

Suck is a required-for-graduation farce of a class called "Applied Creative Thinking", wherein the professor actually takes the class seriously, thinks it's such a valuable class that everyone should have to take it, and requires one hundred concept sketches to accompany every project. This is why no one has heard from me in ages except Mr. Chongo Razz

suck is.... go out for a bite to eat at a restaurant with your buddy, deciding to play a lame prank on your buddy when he steps out for a smoke at the restaurant and leaves his keys unattended, so you hide them in an easy spot hoping to have a little fun making him look for them... he gets back from the smoke and due to a sloppy job of hiding them, sees part of them poking out from hiding spot... so he decides to turn the tables.... and waits till you arent looking... then grabs them from the hiding spot without you noticing... and later when its time to leave, he pretends to not know where his keys are and gets mad and refuses to look for them, demanding that you tell him where they are... and then when you try to show him how easy they were to find.... they arent there... as he triumphantly holds them up to show he had them the whole time... laughing at you...

Suck is...a 3 year old puking up anything and everything every 15-60 minutes for the last 13 hours. At least it seems to have slowed down and progressed to dry heaving.

Kids'll change ya. Before I had them, just the sound or smell of someone else vomiting would have me almost doing the same (and I hate puking...I once managed a 12-year stretch without doing it ). Now, I can hold onto one of my kids as he does it multiple times within an hour. I wonder what adding two more offspring will lead to.

Suck is coming home to find your much-anticipated new glasses have arrived in the post, so you excitedly rip open the package and put them on only to find:

A) One pair is all knackered and bent, and the lenses don't fit in the frames properly, so you can't wear them, and

B) The other pair, which you admittedly bought on a bit of a whim without first trying them on, look absolutely hideous on you.

... Should've gone to Specsavers .....


The fact that you got two pairs likely mean you did though.... If the glasses were bent and misshapen due to postage/packaging/handling errors you should be able to do some free-stuff-via-complaining.... .. Get new glasses sent to yourself for free, with an extra pair as well, as free reaction lenses, or sunglasses, or (the one everyone forgets and their damn expensive)... free swimming goggles ! ..... kick up a big fuss that you can't continue with your life because you can't see a damn thing, because "the company" has damaged your glasses before you even got them..... and then tell them you want your new ones as "next day delivery"... .... ... This has happened to myself as well, and I blagged all the above for free ... ...

... later I took the bent and misshapen ones back to the store and got them exchanged under the warranty policy too... I have 4 pairs of "identical" glasses and a pair of goggles all for the cost of 145 .... ....



... This can suck real bad, but at least it can have a silver lining !

Heh, actually I was trying to *avoid* going to Spec Savers this time, and had a go at buying my glasses online (way cheaper than Spec Savers, plus I got a free pair too). I was feeling all smug and internet-savvy until the glasses arrived. :p

Luckily, they have a very generous returns policy...

Suck is quitting smoking, realizing Aenea is a significant trigger for cravings, and having to bow out for a while.

We wish you all the luck in the world, Svair. My wife quit several years ago, and I remember that it was absolute hell ... *shudders at the memory*
If you need anything, like moral support, or anything else that can be offered through a monitor/keyboard, don't hesitate to drop a thread post or a PM!

Yer in our thoughts and prayers!

I might do just that. It's three days now, and I found a cigarette that had fallen between the wall and desk - it almost didn't make it to the garbage disposal.

Start writing out a PC concept? Smoke.
Find out it has already done it? Smoke.
Level a PC? Smoke.
Switch PCs? Smoke.
Finish an area of Aenea? Smoke.
Get beaten in the arena again? Smoke.

This is temporary though. I might be able to beat this, but I'm not sure there is a cure for Aenea, or even if it is desired :-)

Good luck, Svair! As an ex-smoker who used to actually get up in the middle of the night to smoke, because I apparently couldn't even make it until morning, I know how you're feeling.

Suck is an expensive ass private art school that has been slacking for the past four weeks on fixing the air conditioning in the fashion building computer lab. Now the only lab in the city with the programs we need is never below 88 degrees F; currently 94. Dude, these computers are going to start overheating soon.

Suck is having twins that are both ill at only a month old, with one of them having to spend 48 hours in the hospital for a bunch of tests to rule out anything but a simple cold virus.

Yeah, that's why I've been missing the last couple of days.
