We won't be mocking them if the Apocalypse does come though...


Are you hoping you wont have to do the turn if the apocalypse comes?

It's with Lord Sprior currently. After I get my hands on it you'll have the turn the next day (UK time).

Here's one for Leo. A Redditor explains the thought process of a notoriously un-savvy computer user while creating a new folder on desktop.

quote:


Let me expand her thought process a bit:

There's a big window open, I can't see the desktop. Close window with X (if a message appears press again X (or esc) till it's gone, and DON'T EVEN DARE TO READ WHAT IT SAYS). Ok. If I can't see the desktop now, repeat

1. Yay! The desktop!

2. Look at your mouse. Now at the screen. Now back at your mouse. Now back at the screen. Think about how you click. Sadly, I don't remember how you click. This is the hardest part, for sure. Ok, it's easy. Right click. That's fine, I'm already using my right hand. Click. Nothing happens. Click furiously between 3 and 8 times. Oh, wait. I'm so smart. There are TWO buttons here. Let's try the other button. Dumb IT people didn't tell which button to use. Click!

3. Wow, there are a lot of options. Read them all. Out loud. There's no "New" here! Panic. There's no X button. Press esc a couple of times. Fine. Let's try again. Computers are so crazy!

4. Right click with the right hand, using the other button. Success, there's a menu again. Oh, look. LOOK GUYS! THERE'S A "NEW" ITEM!

5. Move slowly to that option. Careful. Great, I'm over the "New" item. Let's click it, even though there's already a sub-menu open.

6. I rock! Now let's jump to the sub-menu. Fail. The sub-menu disappears. Repeat 5 till I get it right. Wonder why computers are so difficult.

7. Read all the items in the sub-menu (out loud, of course). Click "folder".

8. A folder appears. The name is painted with a blue background. Click somewhere in the middle of it. Start erasing its name using backspace (one character at a time, there's no hurry). If there's some text left, click at the end of it and continue pressing backspace till it's blank.

9. Think about a smart name for the folder. GOT IT. My name is beautiful, let's use that.

9b. Oh, there are some lower case here. DIE, LOWER CASE. (repeat the backspace process, press caps lock and try again)

10. Double click anywhere else in the screen. I'm awesome.

After that she will try to find the document she wanted to save in the folder she just created. It will be lost, of course, because she closed the window. IT will be blamed because they make things so complicated.

Beaudy, the Wonder Dog, offers Seasons Greetings to all, and a small request.

"Please remember that you humans made us what we are. We cannot live, as ferals, without you. Please give to any animal rescue organization of your choice, in this season of unrequited giving. I won the lottery, but I have many brothers and sisters that hope and pray for a home. Please help."

Hi all,

WOW!

http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/spaceimages/details.php?id=PIA14934

NASA's Cassini spacecraft has delivered a glorious view of Saturn, taken while the spacecraft was in Saturn's shadow. The cameras were turned toward Saturn and the sun so that the planet and rings are backlit:

Beaudy says God bless you both. Know you can't take them all, and Beaudy knows that's the toughest part. Beaudy says God bless, and thank you, and a Merry Christmas to you. And so do I.

Evening tithe... what a beautiful day in paradise, early summer and it was 27C at 1500, and it is still 23C now at 2027. The Gardener has just been here today (I can't do it anymore), and he cut the hedge and the lawns. I love the smell of freshly cut grass, and with the smell of the hedge on top of that. I'm in heaven, and life is good.

Well, they *were* cats, weren't they?

A tomcat jumping into your face, hitting your nose with his head - but not biting - while slapping BOTH of your ears at the same time with his paws - again without the claws out - sounds somewhat weird, doesn't it.

I never heard that from another cat. But I still loved Snoopy!

BTW, did anyone here heard from Kristian lately (you know that bald big Dane )?

Is his decision of not coming back here still in place?
