    Any unicyclists here ?

    Ride it first. The pedal stroke makes a huge difference. When I was a kid I had one I could never ride very far. A friend had one with a slightly longer arm on the pedal and it made all the difference. "Truth is tough.

    Mozilla Security Update.

    Considering your wide open attacks on various subjects in other forums I am surprised by your apparent undying devotion to Microsquish products. Non-MS products will almost certainly come under attack from the insecure idiots who send out the various worms, trojans, etc. but as has been pointed out by others the response to these problems is much more immediate in open source products. The prolem at MS is the denial that there are hols in their sotware. I have been writing software for nearly 20 years and I can assure that there are holes in everthing ever written. "Truth is tough.

    ADD/ADHD

    It really messed up my wife's sleep. She eventually decided the ADD was easier to deal with than being sleepy all of the time. "Truth is tough.

    You left out the third choice of "Yes." "Truth is tough. It will not break, like a bubble, at a touch; nay, you may kick it about all day like a football, and it will be round and full at evening." -- Oliver Wendell Holmes

    Scotch drinkers?

    Was listening to a local radio show last Friday (17th) and a whisky expert from Scotland was on. He was passing out a few sips of 62 year old scotch. Something like USD$42,000 a bottle.

    The Last Chronicles of Thomas Covenant

    I struggled through the first chronicles. It was always 10 pages away fromn being a really good book but it never got there. Can't imagine following it through to the "last" ones.

  8. Even with only 47 jumps I think I could land that. Damn lucky bastard to find that in the rig. "Truth is tough. It will not break, like a bubble, at a touch; nay, you may kick it about all day like a football, and it will be round and full at evening." -- Oliver Wendell Holmes

    What kind of earlobes do you have?

    I don't like my little, peanut-like thumbs at all... The rest of my hands, fingers, feet and toes, however, are quite nice. POST PICS! - Of my thumbs and toes? You are too weird dude!

    Hurricane Ivan

    Latest track is here Slamming Jamiaca now. But what I have heard is they really are not sure what will happen after it crosses Cuba. Could go west or continue north "Truth is tough.

    Hurricane Ivan

    You are talking about 95% of the population of the alley then. Most of those with protection down here at the south end are from out of town. It is like anyting else, it has to hit home first or be so scary that you freak just thinking about it. I have lived in various parts of the alley for most of my life and never seen a tornado yet many have been very near. I have interior closets and bathrooms, why do I need a secial shelter?

    Hurricane Ivan

    Hell two or three inches shuts things down for two or three days. Twenty four would cripple that state as bad as W did. "Truth is tough.

    Would you ever try skysurfing?

    How about the, from what I heard, cool combo dive with you on the board and a group of divers circled around you? Granted you got spanked for that but from what I heard it was "fun had by all."

    Breaking news from Russia

    Not really....they have A LOT in common actually. Not the least of which is the fact that Chechnya was the biggest "Jihadi" vacation destination after Afghanistan. To think I once had a small amount of sympathy for the Chechens. Not anymore! This may help you understand how it works: "Truth is tough.
