Quality joke time.

ventriloquist

This ventriloquist received a phone call one day from a Welsh Rugby Captain asking him if he wanted to do a gig as theyd won the Welsh league. The ventriloquist says "sure!". So he drives up to Wales and arrives at the club house and nobody's there. About 5 minutes later this stocky guy walks up and says "sorry mate no-one's coming for a few hours, fancy coming for a bite to eat at my farm?" "Sure!" says the ventriloquist. So he goes up to the farm and has a few tinnies and a chilli. After a while the Welsh guy says "fancy seeing the barns and the animals?". "Sure!" says the ventriloquist. So they go to this barn and theres a horse, and the ventriloquist thinks, 'I can have some fun here'.

"Hello Mr. Horse" says the ventriloquist. "How have they been treating you?" "Oh not bad, not bad" says the ventriloquist without moving his lips. "Did you see that - that horse spoke! Speak again horse..." So they walk off to a cow field and the ventriloquist says "Hello Mrs. Cow! how are they treating you?" and then the Cow replies "Oh, not bad - could do with some more frequent milking - my tits are sagging." "Amazing!" crys the Welsh guy. Then they walk to another field and see a sheep. "Hello Mr. Sheep, how have they been treating you?"

The Welshman yells, "Dont listen to that one - hes a lying bastard!"

:D

Heh, I was on the McAffee site today checking out the virus definitions for the various Kitro worms... This advert for Secure IE or whatever it's called popped up. I closed it. A new window then opened with a $20 off deal, and it said that this offer would not be available again.

I pressed Ctrl+N to open it in a new window and nick the URL... So, if anyone wants a cheap copy of Secure IE and Private IE Speecial then click here: https://www.regsoft.net/regsoft/vieworderpage.php3?productid=50692&pc=96H59

I'm typing this on the music computer at school... MY GOD DOES THIS KEYBOARD SUCK ARGH 0_o

Oh dear me.

"You should die on Monday April 27, 2076 at 3:47:38 PM."

"Your average life span is: 91 Years Old. By modifying your Health, Lifestyle, Diet and Environment you can live to be: 100 Years Old. You were born on Sunday, October 13, 1985. You have lived 6,181 days and have 26,888 days left to live. Lets make them count!"

I'm not sure if I wanted to know that. How long do you have to live?

On a sorta Vanessa Carlton note, here's her new video (click on the WV or RV text by A Thousand Miles). All her other tracks from her new album are also available to be listened to online - now that's what I call good. http://www.vanessacarlton.com/music.html

Now then, if you like fonts, you must, but MUST have this site set as your home page. You MUST have this site set to print off every morning so you can have the Top 100 fonts fresh on your printer's feedtray for when you wake up. Hell, you must use their wap site to look at the pictures of the fonts - even though you can't download them or anything, and it costs you a small fortune for even thinking about dialing up on your phone - and you MUST, oh but you you MUST, use their web site to search what I think is personally the LARGEST and MOST COMPREHENSIVE fonts web site In. The. World. Ever.

Wow.

I especially love the bit where you can type in your own text and see it generated by the server as previews for the images... Veeeeeeery funky-ass. If they charged a subscription fee, I'd pay it. And that's saying something. Check dafont.com out here.

Go on, you know you want to.

Click.

Go on.

=D

On a more... curious, obscure and generally f**ked note, this is what you get when you do a whois on google.com using the WhoIs tool from analogx.com:

Whois Server Version 1.3

Domain names in the .com, .net, and .org domains can now be registered
with many different competing registrars. Go to http://www.internic.net
for detailed information.

GOOGLE.COM.IS.THE.GREATEST.SEARCH.ENGINE.EVER.JIMPHILLIPS.ORG
GOOGLE.COM

To single out one record, look it up with "xxx", where xxx is one of the
of the records displayed above. If the records are the same, look them up
with "=xxx" to receive a full display for each record.

>>> Last update of whois database: Sat, 14 Sep 2002 16:48:06 EDT <<<

The Registry database contains ONLY .COM, .NET, .ORG, .EDU domains and
Registrars.

Veeeeeery odd.

Quick Tip: if you want to open Nero VERY quickly, do the WinKey+R combo (press and hold the Windows key and press R) then in the Run box type "nero" (no quotes). Nero will open, and you can then use either the Nero Express feature or create a compilation.


Some more shortnames:

notepad = notepad
iexplore = Internet Explorer (can also be used with a web address after it, e.g. "iexplore www.website.net")
msimn = Outlook Express 5
msmsgs = MSN Messenger
sndvol32 = Volume Control
sndrec32 = Sound Recorder
winamp = winamp
explorer = Windows Explorer (can also be used as so e.g. "explorer C:\windows\desktop" to open the Desktop folder)


Time for Office...

winword = MS Word
excel = MS Excel
powerp = MS PowerPoint
msaccess = MS Access


There's many, many more, but I can't remember them all. Try just the name of a programme if you want to try it out.


Just thought I'd post that for no reason. ;)

This person's home page is temporarily at http://www.jenthy21-site.cityslide2.com/contents/contents.cfm/314478, looks like it'll disappear soon as they haven't paid the hosting company to keep their site on their primary webserver... Anyway just thought I'd do one of these random posts. Innit. :)


On another thought: DAMN THIS HARD DRIVE'S NICE. 120gb for just $160? That's like, ... *converts*... ONE HUNDRED QUID? MY GOD THAT'S CHEAP!!!!!!
http://hwextreme.pricegrabber.com/rating_getprodrev.php/product_id=541564/id_type=M/ut=3efca0051c85dc75/ << click that for reviews and info.

Oooooooh, a nice picture...


This looks promising, check out some of the user reviews.

Strengths:
Fast. Big. Quiet

Weaknesses:
none.

Summary:
This is the best hard drive out there for the money right now. Period.


Looks good...

Strengths:
Very noticeable speed improvement

Weaknesses:
NA


Seems I've found a cracking drive... Now I just have to save and save and save and save and save to buy it. Ack. By the time I'll have enough money, that drive'll be $20 from any Safeway (yes, we have them in the UK too :P) and the latest drives'll be about 300gb for $60. Oh well. :)
