      Agreed.

        People who use improper grammar. If it's your mother tongue, use it correctly.

        - "It's" is not "its."
        - "Your" is not "you're."
        - A lot is two words.
        - "Awhile" follows a verb, "a while" follows a preposition.
        - Using "me" is proper English; have no fear using it. Using "I" incorrectly makes you look worse. You and I (subject) went to the store. He gave the drinks to you and me (object).

            Right on Todd, you will not find "alot" in the dictionary. A lot of people make that mistake.

                ...
                I just corrected a patent application with at least 50 instances of "it's" where "its" was appropriate.

                          BTW, my memorization skills are still very sharp and no search was necessary.

                          Your post put a big smile on my face...now I think I'll brew a cup of my fly-killer coffee (any flying too near the rising fumes go into tightening spirals until they burn up all their fuel and fall dead), eat something (not necessarily in that order) and spend some time on the throne.
                          Hi Juke_spin,

                          No. My sister's computer is a mid-tower and my old Alienware is a tall. If Alienware makes 'em any bigger you'll need to have your doors widened to get them through! So her's never got close enough to the magnet to do it any harm. After I thought that I totalled her's out I put the side panels back on it and flipped it on its side. I put a towel over it (a funeral shroud) so I wouldn't scratch it or desecrate the dead and put the Alienware on top of it.... making my makeshift dead microwave oven/sister's dead computer a taller and more accessible "workbench". And that's what brought the PSU and PS/2 receptacle up to the height of the subwoofer, "burning" them out.

                          The bitch was that I already had my sister's computer 100% by just formatting and clean installing, finally upgrading it to SP-2 and installing her favorite programs and tweaking and setting up certain utilities etc. After MS started their WGA (Windows Genuine Advantage) crap I warned her against going to the Update Center for the updates even though MS "claimed" it would still allow any "key code" to update the "critical security" downloads. I've been using a "Corporate Edition" of XP Pro since XP was first released and it doesn't require any activation from MS. One could argue the legality of it! Anyway, the day after MS' WGA protocol was released there were cracks posted on the Internet but playing the "cat and mouse" game, although I don't mind playing it.... it keeps me sharp, my sister wouldn't be interested in it. So I had a first release copy of an executable XP SP-2 here on my storage drive that didn't have any of the WGA related crap in it and used that to update with and then set her up with a good firewall and antivirus program and that should have gotten her by. She only needed the computer for a month or so until she/we got around to ordering her a new Dell and having it delivered.

                          She feels giggly now because she's so legal... I even had a corporate copy of Office XP that I installed on her computer but that was a royal pain in the ass to keep updated. Lots of key number generators and registry hacks etc. She was always afraid that Bill Gates would come busting down her door with an FBI SWAT team and haul her off to Software Pirate Prison. I think a copy of Office XP was around $400 when it was first released. Outrageous... even for a monopoly. Talk about illegalities..... and sheer gall!

                          Her computer was getting old by any standard (8 years... she finally figured out Evy's age because she remembered she had it before her last marriage) and although I upgraded the key components in it (the hard drive being the most likely to go was only a year old) anything that's in a hot box for 8 years is gonna start to behave erratically. I mean the computer, not her husband!

                          I called her on the phone and told her it was ready and I'd have Dave deliver it. That's another story but for brevities' sake and your sanity I wont go there! Well, we got to talking and decided, since I had no use for it, to put the CD burner from my Alienware into it. A quick 1 hour job. Well Evy (my sister's computer) didn't approve of the CD burner and went haywire on me. Warning Will Rogers, warning.... as I got all these error messages about ATAPI compliance and whatever. That's what caused the prematurely pronounced death of Evy and the other problems that followed.

                          That's when I decided to fix up and setup my old Alienware to give her until we could order the new Dell. And that's how the magnet came to cause the problems in the Alienware.

                          I felt so bad leaving my sister "computerless" that I decided to give it one last shot and lo and behold was able to resurrect Evy from the dead and many loaves, fishes and vessels of vino were given out in celebratory manna.... manner.

                          Oh, now Ali is dead again.... something about "Initializing the USB" according to the LED Diagnostic Codes.... looks like I'll be getting my wish and a new $20 motherboard soon. The PS/2 to USB adapter was working fine and I was about to format and clean install XP.....again. I was just getting into the XP Setup and decided (for some stupid reason) to use the Secondary IDE Master instead of Slave optical drive. When I tried again no output from the video card. Another 10 hours later and still nothing. I switched everything around in there except the color of the paint.... still no go. I think the subwoofer magnet screwed up everything in the upper rear of the computer (PSU and PS/2 and USB ports/motherboard) and it's just a matter of time before the USB and whatever else is located in that area of the motherboard died or dies. I'm not done with it yet but I have a feeling that Ali is!

                          Is crazy-shirted Jeff still picking on you?



                          My sister's new Dell.... and yes...you guessed it... her name is Delly!

                          Oh, another Pet Peeve of mine. When someone, just for the sake of one shot, includes an old framed picture of her favorite brother. Hmm, that picture looks familiar.
