For some reason, each time I reboot my laptop, it reverts back to 800x600. I want to keep it at *edit* 1024x768.

DOH I meant 1024x768 and not 800x600.

This is a simple fun...

Now, the rules is very simple. At whatever you're reading this from, grab the first book you see, open to random page, and the first sentence you glance, post it here!

However.. DON'T post any information on the source such as book title, book type ( such as Drama or Sci-FI ), publish year or even just an author name. No information at all!

Mine is this: "In the same way that Alexandra had been trapped in this world, so was a version of Quinn, in this case in the...

I posted this in reponse to person in other blog...

"I live on much less than that. I get about $6,000 a year plus about $3000 in college fin. aid. I don't feel like I'm poor at all. In fact, I got a nice laptop, computer, car and good place to live. My total monthly bill is just $600 including gas and food. Rest is spent on college bills.

The more stuff you have or want, the more you have to pay in order to support your higher standards of living. I live in little more than a room and hav...

Wow! I love Bush! I loved how he went for Saddam with "evidence" for WMD.

**Ignore this part***USA economies is falling like a rock and gas prices is flying like airplane on it's takeoff.*** I was tired and made a mistake on this part.

Now with great works like those, and support for Bush on it's fatal plunge, it appears that Bush is apparently working really hard... to make his approval rate as close to zero as possible.

Apparently, this law was added to a "must-pass" bill, and as a r...

Dumb: Hello! This is **** tech support. My name is dumb and how can I help you?

Me: Hello. I just bought this wireless network PC card, and it worked, but first time I removed it, it got fried and it won't work anymore, no lights turns on and windows don't even detect it anymore.

Dumb: I see, now click on the bars by the clock...

Me: There's no bars since windows won't detect the broken card.

Dumb: OK now go to network connections and double click the wireless icon.

Me: There's no...

My Crystalized skin just passed 10,000 downloads. I'm still amazed that it was popular (relatively, compared to my other skins).

I really need to finish the service pack that adds more features to this theme.

Anyway, anyone using this theme and likes it?

I have been having this problem for a while. I'm not sure what's happening.

Take a look at this picture:

See the difference? The one at left is the player. It's not a player bug, however. It happens on all of the media players. When it takes a snapshot and saves to the file, the snapshot looks perfect?? What the hell? Hopefully someone will know what is going on. It's annoying.

"I couldn't find anything on internet that may explain this unusual problem of mine. It's nothing serious so far, and don't worry, it's not "private" problem. "

"Basically, once a while my big toe ( either one ) starts to go down and continues well past the point where it get really painful. But I could force it back up and it's fine. Sometimes it's really stubborn, however."

I went to the doctor at Jan 28th and he couldn't find anything wrong. I then had blood drawn to be tested. There w...

I made one, and it's really spooky.

Tips: when making one, make sure the folds is followed exactly. Also, when placing it, make sure all of it's face is evenly lighted and no shadows. Shadows ruins the illusion. When placing it, also make sure it's about eye level or higher, it enhances the illusion!

Have fun with your new dragon!

I have done some research on this interesting MythTV concept. http://www.mysettopbox.tv/knoppmyth.html goes further by making an installation CD out of Linux and MythTV.

It sounds great, but I haven't tested it yet. After all, I would need to have a TV tuner card ( encoder and decoder ) and massive HD space.

I wonder if anyone here have heard of this? If so, which of TV tuner card is supported, AND has a remote? Does it work well for you? Did you have problems with any part of installatio...

Oh man.

I arrived from place where I work, and almost right after I arrived, I bathed. I was pretty dirty from working two shifts without bathing.

Why, you say?

Well... let me tell you why...

I got up, got dressed for work and went to work at 6 AM. That's usual for me, since I work at 7 am.

The weather were quiet, and the drive to work was uneventful.

At 9 AM it begins to rain, and all windows on one side gets wet, as usual since that side always gets lots of wind. But short ti...
