My mother, who is two years shy of being a nonogenarian herself, just
sent me this. There are forty-five pearls of wisdom in here. How many
of them do you subscribe to, believe in, and make part of your
everyday life?

7%

7% Written by a 90 year old
This is something we should all read at least once a week! Make
sure you read to the end!! 
Written by Regina Brett, 90 years old, of the Plain Dealer, Cleveland

, Ohio ..

To celebrate growing older, I once wrote the 45 lessons life taught
me. It is the most requested column I've ever written.
My odometer rolled over to 90 in August, so here is the column once
more:

1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.
2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.
3. Life is too short - enjoy it.
4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends
and family will.
5. Pay off your credit cards every month.
6. You don't have to win every argument. Stay true to yourself.
7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.
8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it.
9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.
10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.
11. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.
12. It's OK to let your children see you cry.
13. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their
journey is all about.
14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it.
15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye, but don't worry,
God never blinks.
16.. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.
17. Get rid of anything that isn't useful. Clutter weighs you down in
many ways.
18. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger.
19.. It's never too late to be happy. But it's all up to you and no
one else.
20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no
for an answer.
21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie.
Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special.
22. Over prepare, then go with the flow.
23. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple.
24. The most important sex organ is the brain.
25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you.
26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words 'In five years,
will this matter?'
27. Always choose life.
28. Forgive
29. What other people think of you is none of your business.
30. Time heals almost everything. Give time, time.
31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
32. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
33. Believe in miracles.
34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you
did or didn't do.
35. Don't audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.
36. Growing old beats the alternative of dying young.
37. Your children get only one childhood.
38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.
39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.
40 If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's,
we'd grab ours back.
41. Envy is a waste of time. Accept what you already have, not what
you need
42. The best is yet to come...
43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
44. Yield.
45. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift.
Its estimated 93% won't forward this. 
If you are one of the 7% who will, forward this with the title '7%'.

I'm in the 7%. Friends are the family that we choose.

The Talk2 List Fw: Looking for potential partners to launch new service

Subject: Looking for potential partners to launch new service



I am developing additional services that allow organizations to provide
customized location information to BlindSquare users. This service is
already being used at the University of Iowa with good success.

Through a simple online interface, organizations can enter GPS coordinates
of a point and a description of that point. BlindSquare can retrieve this
information as soon as it is entered or updated and will read it out to 
the

BlindSquare user. The University of Iowa uses the service to notify blind
students of entrances of buildings, steps, or temporary construction work,
when they approach an entrance or an obstacle. If a familiar route is
blocked due to road works, it is also possible to suggest an alternative
route to the user. Organizations can update or add to the information any
time, and BlindSquare will use the new information instantly.

Later on, I plan to extend this service to indoor navigation. Apple's
iBeacons are an excellent tool to mark locations inside of buildings and 
to

provide information about them. iBeacons are a good option to use for
indoor navigation, because they are produced for the mainstream market so
they are relatively inexpensive ($20-$30 per unit).
I would like to contact individuals and organizations who might be
interested in providing Customized Location Information to their visitors,
staff, or students. These could be orientation and mobility instructors,
schools and institutions for the blind, universities or colleges that 
would

like to make their campus more accessible or museums that are known for
their efforts to be inclusive. The service will be free of charge for
blindness organizations, orientation and mobility instructors, schools and
universities.

I would appreciate your help to find organizations or individuals who 
might
be interested in my service. If you have contacts within an organization, 
I

would also appreciate if you could introduce me and my project to them, if
you think they might be willing and able to help.
If after filling in this questionnaire, you think of other organizations
later on, please feel free to return to this site and submit their 
details.


None of the fields is mandatory, so I do not expect you to enter complete
information about suggested individuals or organizations.
If you agree to use your personal contacts to introduce me and my project
to an organization, please do not contact them yet. I will get back to you
when I am ready to talk with them.
None of the information you submit will be shared with any third party.

Thank you for your help, it is highly appreciated!

The Talk2 List Up! Could be very... Misconstrued:

2013-10-24 Thread Onj
I received this email and thought if you really have a dirty mind, you'd get 
a kick out of all the hard, soft, sleep positions it mentions. I certainly 
sniggered a few times I won't lie... Or lye?

Revealing sleep secrets, powered by the UP(R) system.

Men vs. Women, in bed

The battle of the sexes goes to the mattress.
It's men v women. Men sleep. Women
sleep. And there the similarities doze off.
When we're all tucked in at night, the way we
sleep sounds a wake-up call of differences:
positions to pillow counts, bedtimes to bed
making, who's wearing nothing at all and
who's wearing something on  their feet.
Sleep together, sleep apart.
Sleep well.

The bed

35 - The number of minutes earlier that UP wearers who sleep with partners 
go to bed, compared with UP wearers who sleep alone
97% - The percent of UP wearers  who sleep with a pillow under their head 
(20% with a pillow in their arms, 18% between their legs, and 10% at their 
sides)
81.3% - The percent of women UP wearers who report sleeping  on their sides, 
as opposed  to 55.3% of men


Lay your head to rest

Which side (or back or stomach) are you on? Match your sleep position with 
the

firmness of your pillow. Side sleepers should go firm for head and neck
support. Back sleepers do best with medium to firm cushioning. Stomach 
sleepers

are softies; a pillow without pushback eases neck strain.*

The Talk2 List Fw: Would you sign our petition to encourage Guide Dogs UK to provide a mechanism to certify owner trained guide dogs?

Subject: Would you sign our petition to encourage Guide Dogs UK to provide a 
mechanism to certify owner trained guide dogs?



I very rarely ask anyone to sign an internet petition, so I hope you will 
forgive the group email.


as some of you may know and some not, I've been working for the last two 
years now with a yellow Labrador called Alice that I trained myself to guide 
me after returning my last dog back to Guide Dogs UK because I felt he was 
unsafe.


Alice performs all the tasks of a normal guide dog plus several assistance 
dog tasks such as finding my keys and phone, handing me objects I drop and 
standing over smaller objects such as pound coins or taking me to them.


However, I am unable to get her officially certified because Guide Dogs UK 
does not recognise owner trained dogs.  This means that I can't fly with 
her, and though I have encountered no access problems anywhere yet, I have 
no legal access rights under the Equality Act as someone would with an 
official guide dog.


This petition is to encourage Guide Dogs UK to think out of the box and look 
at providing a mechanism for supporting and recognising owner trained guide 
dogs provided they meet a certain standard.  This has been done with great 
success in the past in other countries such as New Zealand.  and there are 
currently other charities in the UK who provide help and support for owner 
trainers of assistance dogs, but as I have no other disabilities apart from 
blindness, they are unable to work with me.


This petition was written by my good friend Lynn Holdsworth who owner 
trained a rescue dog Lucy to guide her.  She briefly tells her story at the 
beginning.



There is no pressure on anyone to sign, and this is the only email I will 
send regarding this petition.  We realise that maybe nothing will be 
achieved in Lucy and Alice's time, but if we are able to plant the seed and 
so help other owner trainers in the future, then at least we will have 
achieved something.


Please feel free to share with friends.  There is space for you to put 
comments too if you like.

The Talk2 List SpeedDots screen-protectors - UK £6.50, Eur9.00

2011-07-31 Thread Onj
As the official UK distributer of SpeedDots tactile Screen-protectors, it 
means I get to do a small amount of self-promotion, and here it is.



Who is SpeedDots?

SpeedDots.com, a California-based company, announces the official release 
of the SpeedDots Screen Protector, a tactile approach to Apple's iPhone and 
iPod Touch for those who are blind or have low vision, permitting easy 
navigation and orientation to some of Apple's most popular touch-screen 
devices. Using single dots to denote the virtual keyboard, along with a few 
commonly-found buttons and controls, blind/low vision users can input 
information more quickly and efficiently than ever before.
In escence, we provide screen protectors for your device with Braille-style 
dots to enable you to type quicker and easier on your device, as for quite 
a lot of blind people, typing on a flat surfice is very time-consuming and 
annoyingly difficult.


SpeedDots tactile Screen-protector for iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod touch 4th 
Gen.


Each protector (including shipping) costs £6.50 in the UK, and €9.00 to 
Mainland Europe.


In the United States, each protector costs $7.00.
A  $3.00 shipping charge applies.

Two types of SpeedDots screen-protectors exist.

Standard: Our standard screen cover has a mark on every letter of the 
keyboard with the exception of F, and j as
well as all of the standard iPhone controls. This layout is good for people 
new to the iPhone or people

who do a lot of typing.

Advanced: Our Advanced screen cover Has markings on the letters F, and J, 
as well as on all of the standard iPhone
controls. If your an advanced iPhone user, or you want a very clean and 
simple layout, then the advanced

model is for you.

so

it's still interesting.

Or maybe it was our fault.

It is possible someone here dropped the website and the page you are

Or perhaps that page never existed and you just dreamt it up.

 were to call their bluff, we're not a big enough of
their market to matter as far as sales or whatever. And in the case
of the
FS petition, we can all bitch and whine till we're out of breath, but
the
fact is that 90% of their clientel is government contracts. So they 
can

pretty much do whatever, and the other AT companies will eventually go
along or go out of business, and so there's no real insentive for FS
to do
anything positive. Note: I'm not a huge FS fan. At all. So I hope no

A quick note to all of you who have, and those who as of yet have
not signed
the WFA user protest site.

Before I start my message the link right here and now is
www.talknav.com/protest

Firstly, a note to all of you who have signed, thank you, but I 
have

to at
this stage say that it is way too few who have made this effort. We


are


nearing 700, yet for Vodafone to take this seriously we need


thousands.


To date we've not even got close to even the number of users of the
application signing, let alone additional support.

Can I especially ask those of you who either work with or for the
organizations that supposedly represent us as blind folk, yes you
lot, those
of you at the RNIB, CNIB, AFB, NFB, etc, etc, you lot really have
made me
rather upset and irritated.

To date I've posted two messages via each of your web-sites
informing you
all of our protest, has any one of you got back to me to ask for


more


detail, have you mass mailed your members, have you lobbied in our
favour,
have you, no sir. Is this an outrage, is this a complete lack of
competence
when it comes to supporting those who you claim to represent? This
individual thinks so. So if you represent, or have a contact at 
your

local
blind organization please forward this message, we, or certainly I,
am very,
very disappointed in you all.

As for those private individuals who have not yet signed, even if
you do not
own Access or a Symbian phone, your name should be on this list, 
the

list
says something about who we are and what we stand for as blind
folks, it
says that we will not lay down and be ignored whilst our tools to
freedom
and mobility are stolen from us. It says we have a voice and we are
prepared
to use it when necessary.

This protest is about more than just Wayfinder Access, it is a
symbol, now
please, I urge you all, we need this link spreading, we need it
sharing,
Face Book pages, Twitter, those of you who produce pod casts,
mailing lists
etc, etc, if you believe in your freedom to mobility and your 
rights



to


accessible products then make your mark.

More than this, those you know need to say that they too are in
support of
our cause, so get your address book and forward this link,
personalize it
with a few lines of message, get the word out there.

The protest site has a league table on it at the bottom of the


public


signatures page, it's dynamic and countries move about on the list.
To date
we've only had a tiny portion of blind people around the world sign


up.


Spread the word folks.

www.talknav.com/protest

This issue rests squarely in your hands, make a difference today...

The Talk2 List Fw: [access] WFA User Protest

2010-03-01 Thread Onj
I haven't seen a message on this list for months.  Why not let the content 
of this message speak for itself?


From: Neil Barnfather - TalkNav ta...@talknav.com
on Monday, March 01, 2010 6:02 PM

A quick note to all of you who have, and those who as of yet have not 
signed

the WFA user protest site.

Before I start my message the link right here and now is
www.talknav.com/protest

Firstly, a note to all of you who have signed, thank you, but I have to 
at

this stage say that it is way too few who have made this effort. We are
nearing 700, yet for Vodafone to take this seriously we need thousands.

To date we've not even got close to even the number of users of the
application signing, let alone additional support.

Can I especially ask those of you who either work with or for the
organizations that supposedly represent us as blind folk, yes you lot, 
those

of you at the RNIB, CNIB, AFB, NFB, etc, etc, you lot really have made me
rather upset and irritated.

To date I've posted two messages via each of your web-sites informing you
all of our protest, has any one of you got back to me to ask for more
detail, have you mass mailed your members, have you lobbied in our 
favour,
have you, no sir. Is this an outrage, is this a complete lack of 
competence

when it comes to supporting those who you claim to represent? This
individual thinks so. So if you represent, or have a contact at your 
local
blind organization please forward this message, we, or certainly I, am 
very,

very disappointed in you all.

As for those private individuals who have not yet signed, even if you do 
not

own Access or a Symbian phone, your name should be on this list, the list
says something about who we are and what we stand for as blind folks, it
says that we will not lay down and be ignored whilst our tools to freedom
and mobility are stolen from us. It says we have a voice and we are 
prepared

to use it when necessary.

This protest is about more than just Wayfinder Access, it is a symbol, 
now

please, I urge you all, we need this link spreading, we need it sharing,
Face Book pages, Twitter, those of you who produce pod casts, mailing 
lists

etc, etc, if you believe in your freedom to mobility and your rights to
accessible products then make your mark.

More than this, those you know need to say that they too are in support 
of

our cause, so get your address book and forward this link, personalize it
with a few lines of message, get the word out there.

The protest site has a league table on it at the bottom of the public
signatures page, it's dynamic and countries move about on the list. To 
date

we've only had a tiny portion of blind people around the world sign up.
Spread the word folks.

www.talknav.com/protest

This issue rests squarely in your hands, make a difference today...

Regards.

Neil Barnfather.

you're not head of a large blindy organisation, though.  And though I agree 
with your standpoint, to a point, if I ask you, will you sign instead?  I'm 
asking as someone who, unless Loadstone really decides to do something 
useful, will have no GPS undder his platform.  You have Mobile Geo and you 
are lucky for that, however it shall be a cold day in hell I switch to 
Windows smart.  Especially with all the incredibly um, interesting? changes 
they are trying to implement at this time.
So, ignoring that message, which to be fair the guy did have a point, he 
wasn't saying it to individuals but to large organisations, please sign it. 
I can't ask more than that really.

So... he wants more signatures, but the only way he feels he can get
them is to insult everybody? I won't sign now simply because of the
author's attitude, despite his good intentions.

The Talk2 List Common sense: dead!

2009-12-02 Thread Onj


An Obituary printed in the London Times - Interesting and sadly rather 
true.


Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has
been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since 
his

birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape.

He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as:

- Knowing when to come in out of the rain;
- Why the early bird gets the worm;
- Life isn't always fair;
- and maybe it was my fault.

Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more
than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in
charge).

His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but
overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6-year-old boy
charged with sexual harassment for kissing a class mate; teens suspended
from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for
reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.

Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job
that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly 
children.

It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent
to administer sun lotion or an aspirin to a student; but could not inform
parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.

Common Sense lost the will to live as the churches became businesses; and
criminals received better treatment than their victims. Common Sense took a
beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own home
and the burglar could sue you for assault.

Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to
realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her
lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement. Common Sense was preceded
in death, by his parents, Truth and Trust, by his wife, Discretion, by his
daughter, Responsibility, and by his son, Reason.

He is survived by his 4 stepbrothers; I Know My Rights, I Want It Now,
Someone Else Is To Blame, and I'm A Victim.

not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone. If you
still remember him, pass this on. If not, join the majority and do nothing.

It's not due to a lack of trying.  they come no matter what I do.  Perhaps 
I will pay someone to program an entirely new approach to spam called 
fly-swatting.  It'll be router-side, and therefore much more interesting. 
Who knows, maybe it will get shit done.

Just because it's coming from the outside isn't a good excuse not to do
something about it, like not allowing messages with html/attachments to
make it to the list, as there is really no need for either on this
particular forum. I thought that used to be the case?
Also, each of these messages is 42KB, and sending that out to a bunch of
users every time one of these comes in... yeah.

I get enough of these fake spammy/virus things as it is with my broken
Spam Assassin, which is thwarting my efforts at every turn, because I'm
obviously an idiot, and don't know what I'm doing.

Maybe I will build an isolated virtual machine just fur running viruses
to see what they do. No, actually, I'm not that bored.

The thing about doobs, however, is that there are physical 
manifestations
of them, in multiple forms, actually. Therefore, they'll never quite 
die.

Even Blart has a place in proper society now, thanks to a recent movie
release, and a boy who saved the world. That's my defense on that.
Jerks are quite generic, and they're everywhere.
There are at least 24 of them, anyway.

my God, this has to be the most blind sounding e-mail I've ever read.


The email following yours?  The entire thread?  A small portion of something 
that nobody else quite yet understands?  I will state for the record I am 
confused.  Why saying that it's the weekend and to relax makes you think of 
being blind I'm not quite sure.



I'm glad that time when such things were around was a quick faze, and
I got over it very fast.


Once again I profess to being quite confused and queerying the state of the 
owner of this email for clarification at this time.

The Talk2 List My complaint about Lord Useless Titty-Face III

2009-06-07 Thread Onj
I am writing this letter in simple English in order that everyone can read 
and understand my words. Let us note first of all that we must remove our 
chains and move towards the light. (In case you didn't
understand that analogy, the chains symbolize Lord Useless Titty-Face III's 
self-centered roorbacks and the light represents the goal of getting all of 
us to lend a helping hand.) I wish the most lewd cozeners
I've ever seen had the gumption not to gum up what were once great ideas. 
For proof of this fact I must point out that I'm at loggerheads with Lord 
Titty-Face on at least one important issue. Namely, he
argues that divine ichor flows through his veins. I take the opposite 
position, that Lord Titty-Face has compiled an impressive list of 
grievances against me. Not only are all of these grievances completely
fictitious, but Lord Titty-Face will probably never understand why he 
scares me so much. And he doubtlessly does scare me: His wheelings and 
dealings are scary, his harangues are scary, and most of all, he
wants us to believe that society is screaming for his squibs. How stupid 
does he think we are? I hardly know. But I will stake the immortality of my 
soul that Lord Titty-Face insists that obscurity, evasiveness,
incomprehensibility, indirectness, and ambiguity are marks of depth and 
brilliance. How can he be so blind? Very easily. Basically, I cannot 
promise not to be angry at Lord Titty-Face. I do promise,
however, to try to keep my anger under control, to keep it from leading 
me-as it leads Lord Titty-Face-to use terms of opprobrium such as grotty 
social outcasts and nugatory racketeers to castigate

whomever he opposes.
Lord Titty-Face's accomplices want to quote me out of context for one 
purpose and one purpose only: to have more impact on Earth's biological, 
geological, and chemical systems during our lifetime and our
children's than all preceding human generations had together. If Lord 
Titty-Face ever claims that embracing a system of antinomianism will make 
everything right with the world, we must answer only one
thing: No, the reverse is true. I have a New Year's resolution for him: 
He should pick up a book before he jumps to the rash conclusion that his 
opinions represent the opinions of the majority-or even a
plurality. I am not embarrassed to admit that I have neither the training, 
the experience, the license, nor the clinical setting necessary to properly 
defend with dedication and ferocity the very rights that he so
desperately wants to abolish. Nevertheless, I do have the will to 
demonstrate conclusively that I find Lord Titty-Face's allegations not only 
insalubrious but also possession-obsessed. That's why I
unmistakably suspect that he knows how to lie. It's too bad he doesn't yet 
understand the ramifications of lying.
I have begged Lord Titty-Face's devotees to step forth and fight for our 
freedom of speech. To date, not a single soul has agreed to help in this 
fashion. Are they worried about how Lord Titty-Face might
retaliate? Apparently, even know-it-all Lord Titty-Face doesn't know the 
answer to that one. It wouldn't even matter if he did, given that he makes 
a lot of exaggerated claims. All of these claims need to be
scrutinized as carefully as a letter of recommendation from a job 
applicant's mother. Consider, for example, Lord Titty-Face's claim that he 
does the things he does for the children. The fact of the matter is
that that fact is simply inescapable to any thinking man or woman. 
Thinking is the key word in the previous sentence.
And, more important, I can't make heads or tails of Lord Titty-Face's 
words. I mean, does he want to grasp at straws, trying to find increasingly 
dissolute ways to keep a close eye on those who look like
they might think an unapproved thought or doesn't he? It's irrelevant that 
my allegations are 100% true. Lord Titty-Face distrusts my information and 
arguments and will forever maintain his current opinions.
To tell you the truth, if you looked up lethargic in the dictionary, 
you'd probably see his picture. As will become apparent sooner or later, 
Lord Titty-Face uses the word epididymodeferentectomy without
ever having taken the time to look it up in the dictionary. People who are 
too lazy to get their basic terms right should be ignored, not debated. The 
only thing bigger than the chip on his shoulder is the
grossness of his remonstrations. I don't think anyone questions that. But 
did you know that he never misses an opportunity to take advantage of a 
crisis, whether contrived or spontaneous?
Lord Titty-Face's personal interest in seeing his convictions shoved down 
people's throats is superstitious but that's to be expected of him. Lord 
Titty-Face's taradiddles are not witty satire, as he would have
you believe. They're simply the uncompanionable ramblings of someone who 
has no idea or appreciation of what he's mocking. Since Lord Titty-Face 
claims to know more than the rest of us, I'm sure

Ladies, gentlemen and alternatives.  This list has served almost everybody 
on it very well over the years, and now I have accumulated over 100 things 
I wish to find, I ask your help.
I am going to attach a very small text file to this message, and if you 
know where or how I can obtain one or many of the items in said file, I 
will be thankful.
Please note:  There is no prize to be gained here, just the satisfaction of 
a job well done, and the knowledge that you are helping a man in need.
With over 60 people on this list, I'm sure at least one of you has 
something to offer, so I will say thanks in advance, and take my leave, 
thusly.

The Talk2 List Marrage day

Well, today's the day then.  My marrage.  Yep, tied down, but it's a good 
thing.
In any case, with luck if all goes to plan and things don't break, you fine 
people will be able to tune into the wedding as it happens live from the 
comfort of your own homes by pointing your winamp to

http://listen.tbrn.net:/tbrn.ogg.m3u
at 11 AM EST, 4 PM UK and the rest you can work out I'm sure.
The stream is most likely going to be spotty in places, using 3G to stream 
will do that, but an uninterupted archive will be made available at a later 
time.
In any case, I suppose I should continue to get ready.  Thank you to all 
those that want to listen and can make it.  Wish me luck.

On 4/16/2009 5:09 PM, Onj wrote:

Hi.
http://onj1.andrelouis.com/programs
look there, for MirandaPreconfigured.exe.
being portable, the exe is not an installer, but a self-extracting
archive so you simply extract it, run it from wherever you wish, and
set up the options.
Upon first run, you will have to skip the import/export wizard by
simply hitting escape, then entering the options with control shift o.
This can of course be changed at a later date.
Also, you wil, just once, have to click use classic mode with the Jaws
cursor, because otherwise the new option layout is not accessible to 
you.

Differences from the version found on the site are, from the top of my
head:


*created sounds for the most popular events, such as online, offline,
incoming file transfer, file failed, weather alert

*added message logging to files on a per contact basis, (see
miranda\MsgExport for details)

*allows auto-accept of files from your contacts, using a per contact
directory scheme, such as miranda\received files\an...@andrelouis.com,
assuming you were to receive a file from me for example

*added weather plugin to give weather for your city and others you may
choose

*added the ability to announce online/offline contacts using SAPI
through the speak.dll, must be configured by the user

*added voice-chat capability to Miranda through the use of MirandaCOM,
which allows other users with Miranda and said plugin to communicate,
this being equivalent to Microsoft's voice-chat in Windos Live!

That's all I can think of, probably others but that's a start.
Download is just about 4 megabites.

Any problems, contact me offlist for further help, though I am
getting married this Saturday so will be extremely busy this weekend.
In any case, I will do my best to respond to your queeries (if any) in
a timely manner.

Patrick, all I can say is I'm still a technological doob. Andre, I
didn't even know you had a preconfigured Miranda. I probably could have
saved myself a lot of annoyance. I'm slowly, extremely slowly, figuring
this thing out, but I'm far from out of the woods.

Sounds not saying hello? Hmm. Sounds don't usually talk to you unless
you explicitly tell them to. I have no sounds that hello at me,
because I personally find the concept rather offensive.

Dumb question: have you actually assigned any events? There are none
assigned by default, unless you're using a pre-packaged Miranda, like
the one Andre has been passing around for the last couple of years.

Hi.

I am emailing on behalf of a station I listen to called tbrn.net.
They are in the process of moving their stuff.
Issue is they have no place to store their archives of shows.
We are probably talking 500gb 1tb pluss and its going to be ever 
expanding.

This is a free radio station so they don't have the cash  to host stuff.
They can't host stuff on their own connections of the various staff, 
because

of data caps.
They don't have storage for the archives.
To tell you the truth I don't know what the ammount currently is but it
grows every week each file in ogg betwene 80 and 200mb each and longer
depending on things.
Ofcause they can't afford any  space at the ammount they are dealing 
with.

Its got to the point where there are no archives currently up except b7y
direct link which means either I have to get the stuff from journals, etc
which are not always updated or ask. At any rate they would like any
suggestions.
This message will probably be forewarded to several lists but since I 
have

had conversations with you I'd give you a crack at it first.
Ofcause depending on when you get this everyone else will have a copy of
this as I will be doing a message after this to lists.
They can't afford much if anything they are mostly studants all blind I
think some have jobs but not sure.
Any help will be appreciated

instead.  This won't be a broadcast designed for the purpose of patting
myself on the back.  Instead it will be a trip down memory lane, complete
with clips from the more notorious shows of the past, an excerpt of the
staff meeting on March 5, 2006, that eventually led to my joining the
network, and a Steve and Karen, who will no doubt be around to help ensure
that the broadcast is as random as possible.  Finally the last hour of the
show will be devoted exclusively to an audio collage, featuring every 
single

certainly will not be a show to miss.  So bring your computer or PDA, a

Windows says, hard disk 4 D has a bad block.  I chkdsk /f the drive and it 
took about 15 and a half minutes and recovers files, and does all that, and 
I'm then notified it has 53 KB of bad sectors.  Now that's less than an 
iriver drive, but see, thing about that, is my Iriver drive has 64 K of bad 
sectors, and is much, much older.  To add to this of course, an Iriver is a

Dear Friends,

My name is !Ndugood. I am a wealthy Nigerian prince who loves the jazz
of music. I am seeking your help to move $200,000,000 from my checking
account here in Nigeria to the United States.
I too love the jazz of music and am planning to flee to America to
open many jazz clubs at which I would like you to perform. You will
receive $42,000 a night, plus a meal. My new Tribal Village Vanguard
clubs will be of great success and you will become rich like the rest
of  American jazz musicians. I have already applied for building code
exemptions to allow thatched stages and the spearing of live animals.

But I desperately need your help. My tribe, the Swindlisi, a peaceful
jazz-loving people, has been horribly oppressed by the ruling military
junta, which despises the jazz of music. My father, an exiled king and
booking agent, was recently imprisoned under the Draconian three gigs
you're out law. And now I must flee my beloved country with all of my
 improbable wealth. But I need help in moving it. I have so much money
that it will not fit in the allotted two checked bags and one
carry-on. I am therefor want to transfer the money through your ATM
system. (The Nigerian ATM system cannot exchange international
currencies; it only converts antelope to money).

So please to just provide me with your full name and address, social
security number, bank account and PIN numbers. And you will become
incredibly (literally) rich from playing many jazz gigs. (Note: normal
Nigerian Musician's Union rules apply: three hour performances, two 15
minute breaks allowed, musicians to provide their own mosquito nets,
one open fire per bandstand, one free meal plus anything you kill).

Act now. The first ten musicians to respond will receive a free copy
of the Nigeria's Greatest Jazz Hits CD, by our beloved 'Disoriented'
Gillespie Band, which contains the hits:
 The Night Has A Thousand Flies
 Goodbye Shrunken Head
 Here's That Rainy Season
 Just Tribesmen (Lovers No More)
     Take the 'A' Trail

You dare talk here?  You dare show your North Carolynian face all over this 
list?  you make a mess on the carpet, you don't wipe your feat, and you 
leave hairballs on the ceiling.  Though quite how they get there I don't

With the push of stuff like Twitter, Facebook, and that other
winky-blinky thing that rhymes with Tango, this list hasn't had much to
do over the past year.

If traffic on this list doesn't start becoming a lot more interesting,
I'm going to have to take drastic measures.
Yep, that's right, I'm going to have to start forwarding server logs and
caller ID info for each incoming call to this list, and you won't like
it much.
Lots of phone numbers will become viewable by the public.
Your world will flip it's face off in at least four directions.
They'll turn your power off for being a bad person, and cut your phone
line from the street. If you have cable, you won't anymore. If you have
a satellite dish, make a wish before it hits the ground.

In otherwords, talk!

Now I'm going to be hypocritical and go to sleep.

The Talk2 List Release of Wayfinder Access 2.5

2008-10-13 Thread Onj
For those wayfinder access users who may not be aware, the following 
message was taken from the WAyFinder Access users list.


From: Albin Olofsson [EMAIL PROTECTED]
on Monday, October 13, 2008 2:15 PM

Dear all,



Today Wayfinder Access 2.5 is released! Everyone who is a current Access
user can go to access.getwf.com using the web browser in the phone and
download and install new version.



My name is Albin Olofsson and I recently started to work as Product 
Manager

for Wayfinder Access at Wayfinder. I have been following the Talknav forum
for a while and I am very pleased to see the great interest in Wayfinder
Access and all the comments about pros and cons from a user perspective. I
will continue to follow the forum and also be an active participant. Your
input has been very valuable when updating Wayfinder Access. I also would
like to thank Neil who is doing a fantastic job running the Talknav forum,
many thanks Neil!



I really hope that you will like Access 2.5 and that it will contribute to
making your everyday life easier.



Below are the major updates to Wayfinder Access 2.5

* The route update has improved when moving slowly. In Access 2.0 the
guide view do not update correct when the user was moving slow (under 2
miles/hour). This has been changed for version 2.5 making it possible to
approach e.g. a crossroad at a slow speed while the count down of the
distance is correctly updated. Note however, that when moving at very slow
speeds the drift in the GPS position can affect the accuracy of distance 
to

the crossing.
* Added functionality to use a position different from the GPS
position as position when browsing the Nearby Views. Once no GPS is
connected, the menu option Use as position for search hits can be used 
in

order to set the position for the Nearby views.
* GPS status will now indicate when a GPS is connected but no
positions received as well as status of GPS signal from 33, 66 to 100 % 
when
positions are available. This view is placed at the top of the Info view 
and

is automatically updated.
* In settings it is made possible to set the update frequency of the
four Nearby views All nearby, Crossroads nearby, Favourites nearby, Places
nearby. It is possible to set manual update or specify the number of 
seconds

between updates. 0 seconds means that manual updates are required. The
Nearby views will only update when the user is moving and when standing
still no automatic update will happen. For automatic update to start again
the user has to move a minimum of 5 meters. Note that inaccuracy in GPS
positions sometimes will lead to updates of the Nearby views even when
standing still. It is of course always possible to push number 9 for 
manual

update.
* TeleAtlas Premium POIs are added drastically increasing the number
of POI's.
* Categories added to category search.
* The map loading functionality on access.mywayfinder.com has been
expanded to cover all regions where Wayfinder has maps. Searching for maps
has also been made easier.
* Default setting for Around you update decreased to 10 seconds and
Locked Nav. rate decreased to 15 seconds.
* Support for S60 Feature Pack 2 (increases phone compatibility)
* General bug fixing

Kind Regards,



Albin

Amy Billman happened to mention in passing:


The History of Manure
 You learn something everyday...here's your lesson:

 Manure:  In the 16th and 17th centuries,  everything had to be
transported by ship and it was also before  commercial fertilizer's
invention, so large
shipments of manure were common.

 It  was shipped dry, because in dry form it weighed a lot less than
when wet, but once water (at sea) hit it, it not only became heavier,
but the process
of fermentation began again, of which a by product is methane  gas. As
the stuff was stored below decks in bundles you can see what could (and
did) happen.

 Methane  began to build up below decks and the first time someone came
below at night with a lantern, BM!

 Several  ships were destroyed in this manner before it was determined
just what was happening.   After  that, the bundles of manure were
always stamped
with the term 'Ship High In Transit' on them, which meant for the
sailors to stow it high enough off the lower decks so that any water
that came into the
hold would not touch this volatile cargo and start the production of
methane.

 Thus  evolved the term ' S.H.I.T ' , (Ship High In Transport) which has
come down through the centuries and is in use to this very day.

 You probably did not know the true history of this  word.

 Neither  did I.

 ,,,I had always thought it was a golf term.

If life gives you lemons, squeeze the juice into a water gun and shoot
other people in the eyes. If life gives you lemons, stick them down your
shirt and make your boobs look bigger.

well that's equally as fun, and allows you to listen pretty much anywhere, 
anyhow, if it works for you.

However,

This is the best way  for listening if you've got an ogg-capable player. 
Winamp or foobar for example.  If you do, it would be advisable to use it 
because it will sound better than alternative formats.

So please, tune in and see what you find.

This is just hilarious!

Dear Citizens of America,


In view of your failure to elect a competent President and thus to
govern yourselves, we hereby give notice of the revocation of your
independence, effective immediately.

Her Sovereign Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, will resume monarchical
duties over all states, commonwealths and other territories (except
Kansas, which she does not fancy), as from Monday next.


Your new prime minister, Gordon Brown, will appoint a governor for
America without the need for further elections. Congress and the Senate
will be disbanded. A questionnaire may be circulated next year to
determine whether any of you noticed.


To aid in the transition to a British Crown Dependency, the following
rules are introduced with immediate effect:


1. You should look up revocation in the Oxford English Dictionary.
Then look up aluminium, and check the pronunciation guide. You will be
amazed at just how wrongly you have been pronouncing it.


2. The letter 'U' will be reinstated in words such as 'colour', 'favour'
and 'neighbour.' Likewise, you will learn to spell 'doughnut' without
skipping half the letters, and the suffix ize will be replaced by the
suffix ise.


3. You will learn that the suffix 'burgh' is pronounced 'burra'; you may
elect to spell Pittsburgh as 'Pittsberg' if you find you simply can't
cope with correct pronunciation.


4. Generally, you will be expected to raise your vocabulary to
acceptable levels (look up vocabulary). Using the same twenty-seven
words interspersed with filler noises such as like and you know is
an unacceptable and inefficient form of communication.


5. There is no such thing as US English. We will let Microsoft know on
your behalf. The Microsoft spell-checker will be adjusted to take
account of the reinstated letter 'u' and the elimination of -ize.


6. You will relearn your original national anthem, God Save The Queen,
but only after fully carrying out Task #1 (see above).


7. July 4th will no longer be celebrated as a holiday. November 2nd will
be a new national holiday, but to be celebrated only in England. It will
be called Come-Uppance Day.


8. You will learn to resolve personal issues without using guns, lawyers
or therapists. The fact that you need so many lawyers and therapists
shows that you're not adult enough to be independent. Guns should only
be handled by adults. If you're not adult enough to sort things out
without suing someone or speaking to a therapist then you're not grown
up enough to handle a gun.


9. Therefore, you will no longer be allowed to own or carry anything
more dangerous than a vegetable peeler. A permit will be required if you
wish to carry a vegetable peeler in public.


10. All American cars are hereby banned. They are crap and this is for
your own good. When we show you German cars, you will understand what we
mean.


11. All intersections will be replaced with roundabouts, and you will
start driving on the left with immediate effect. At the same time, you
will go metric immediately and without the benefit of conversion tables.
Both roundabouts and metrification will help you understand the British
sense of humour.


12. The Former USA will adopt UK prices on petrol (which you have been
calling gasoline) - roughly $8/US per gallon. Get used to it.


13. You will learn to make real chips. Those things you call french
fries are not real chips, and those things you insist on calling potato
chips are properly called crisps. Real chips are thick cut, fried in
animal fat, and dressed not with catsup but with malt vinegar.


14. Waiters and waitresses will be trained to be more aggressive with
customers.


15. The cold tasteless stuff you insist on calling beer is not actually
beer at all. Henceforth, only proper British Bitter will be referred to
as beer, and European brews of known and accepted provenance will be
referred to as Lager. American brands will be referred to as
Near-Frozen Gnat's Urine, so that all can be sold without risk of
further confusion.


16. Hollywood will be required occasionally to cast English actors as
good guys. Hollywood will also be required to cast English actors as
English characters. Watching Andie MacDowell attempt English dialogue in
Four Weddings and a Funeral was an experience akin to having one's ear
removed with a cheese grater.


17. You will cease playing American football. There is only one kind
of proper football; you call it soccer. Those of you brave enough, in
time, will be allowed to play rugby (which has some similarities to
American football, but does not involve stopping for a rest every
twenty seconds or wearing full kevlar body armour like a

player ever made. That's particularly true for blind users. It's the
Iriver h-320 with Rockbox installed and talking on it. The machine can
play MP3, WMA, AAC, OGG, FLAK, and a bunch of other file formats, can
record using either a built-in microphone or a line-in jack, can be
connected to other audio equipment through a line-out jack, and has an
FM radio built in. All the work of installing Rockbox, which, though not
difficult, does require a sighted person in my experience, has already
been done and it will, therefore, come talking out of the box. All the
user will need to do is boot it, connect it to a computer, transfer
audio to it, and play/record. It can, like all Rockboxable players, have
file transfers done through Windows Explorer and does not need any extra
software. It comes with its case, a screen cleaning cloth, its USB
cable, and the charger which supports all voltages. I will be happy to
take any purchaser over the player when he/she receives it so that
he/she will know the buttons/jacks/switches immediately. The full
technical specs are below. I'd like to get £130 or best offer for the
unit including shipping anywhere in the world. , and I'll except Paypal,
credit card, money orders, or cheques, though the latter will have to
clear before I send the unit. Either reply to this message or send one to

The Talk2 List Fw: I'm so excited I've finished the bloody final!

2008-01-04 Thread Onj

Anyone old enough to remember this?
No mention of the chicken and the egg though, that's sad.
Also, the date  near the end hasn't yet happened unless I've been under a 
rock all this time, but this list is dead and that just isn't acceptable.

Perhaps it's a rock and a hard place...  oh you know what? Just never mind.

Unfortunately, finals start for me this Friday.  It sucks dam

finals I'm not sure about are the Science and Math.



Ah, deer old high school...
I really do miss those finals.

The Final Exam

INSTRUCTIONS: Read each question thoroughly. Answer
all questions.

Time limit--four hours. Begin immediately.

HISTORY: Describe the history of the Papacy from its
origins to the present day, concentrate specifically
but not exclusively, on the social, political,
economic, religious, and philosophical impact on
Europe, Asia, America and Africa. Be brief, concise
and specific.

LITERATURE: Compose an epic poem based on the events
of your own life in which you see and footnote
allusions from T.S. Eliot, Keats, Chaucer, Dante,
Norse
mythology and the Marx brothers. Critique your poem
with a full discussion of its metrics.

MUSIC: Write a piano concerto. Orchestrate it and
perform it with flute and drum. You will find a piano
under your seat.

LOGIC: Using accepted methodology prove all four of
the following: That the universe is infinite; that
truth is beauty; that there is not a little person
who turns off the light in the refrigerator when you
close the door, and that you are the person taking
this exam. Now disprove all of the above. Be specific;
show all work.

PHILOSOPHY: Sketch the development of human thought;
estimate its significance. Compare with the
development of any other kind of thought.

MEDICINE: You have been provided with a razor blade, a
piece of gauze, and a bottle of Scotch. Remove your
own appendix. Do not suture until your work has
been inspected. You have fifteen minutes.

BIOLOGY: Create life. Estimate the differences in
subsequent human culture if this form of life had
developed five hundred years earlier, with special
attention
to the probable effects on the English Parliamentary
system. Prove your thesis.

PSYCHOLOGY: Employing principles from the major
schools of psychoanalytic thought, successfully
subject yourself to analysis. Make appropriate
personality
changes, bill yourself and fill out all medical
insurance forms. Now do the same to the person seated
to your immediate left.

SOCIOLOGY: Estimate the sociological problems that
might accompany the end of the world. Show how boy
meets girl theory developed. Construct and experiment
to test your theory.

ECONOMICS: Develop a realistic plan for refinancing
the national debt. Trace the possible effects of you
plan in the following areas: Cubism, the Donatist
controversy, the wave theory of light. Outline a
method from all points of view. Point out deficiencies
in your argument as demonstrated in your answer
to the last question.

COMPUTER SCIENCE: Define computer. Define Science. How
do they relate? Why? Create a generalized algorithm to
optimize all computer decisions. Assuming
an 1130 CPU supporting 50 terminals, each terminal to
activate your algorithm, design the communications to
interface and all the necessary control programs.

PUBLIC SPEAKING: 2,500 riot crazed students are
storming the classroom. Calm them. You may use any
ancient language except Latin or Greek.

PHYSICS: Explain the nature of matter. Include in your
answer an evaluation of the impact of the development
of mathematics on science.

AGRICULTURAL SCIENCE: Outline the steps involved in
breeding your own super high yield, all weather hybrid
strain of wheat. Describe its chemical and physical
properties and estimate its impact on world food
supplies. Construct a model for dealing with
world-wide surpluses. Write your Nobel Prize
acceptance speech.

COMPREHENSION: three minute time test. Read everything
before doing anything. Put your name in the upper
right hand corner of this page. Circle the word
name in sentence three. Sign your name under the title
of this paper, after the title write yes, yes, yes.
Put an X in the lower left hand corner of this
paper. Draw a triangle around the X you just put down.
On the back of this paper multiply 703x668. Loudly
call out your name when you get to this point.
If you think you have followed directions carefully to
this point call out I have. Punch three small holes
in the top of this paper. If you are the first
person to get this far, call out I am the first
person to this point, I am leading in following
directions. On the reverse side of this paper add
8950
and 9850. Put a circle around your answer and put a
square around the circle. Now that you have finished
reading carefully, do only sentence two.

POLITICAL SCIENCE: There is a red

Re: The Talk2 List winamp5.5

2007-10-12 Thread Onj
I haven't upgraded winamp since I had Malcolm, the  old AMD Athlon XP 3000+ 
which died in december.  My winamp on all three of my machines is a 
customised 5.3 and loads even on the 750 mhz server box in under 5 seconds. 
It's fast and  it's stable and still works.
I stole some plugins from other places and my wave files do work in the open 
dialog for whatever reason, so I'm happy, but yes, the general concensus 
does seem to be, and I do personally agree, winamp after about version 5 
point whatever is a pile.  Probably earlier than 5.3 but mine works for me, 
so I stopped there.




On Friday, October 12, 2007 5:52 AM,
Patrick Perdue happened to mention in passing:


On 10/12/2007, 12:17:39 AM EDT, John left a message in a bottle, stating:


This is why I never upgraded past 5.08.  Once I heard of those wav
issues I was pretty much turned off to the later versions of Winamp.


Semi-long post ahead!

There are workarounds for all this. If you want wav file type to show up
in the open dialogue of the main window and playlist for newer versions
of winamp (something that should not be necessary in the first place),
here are two possible methods of making this happen:

1. Go to options, plugins, input. Select Nullsoft Waveform Decoder
vX.X, and press configure.
Here, you will find a list of file types to associate with the wav input
plugin, as well as other options pertaining to dithering, bit
depth/sample rate conversion, and such. Take care to make sure that only
the following extensions are selected in this list:
wav, voc, au, snd, aif, aiff
Selecting a combination that I haven't determined after this point
usually breaks it, and I have no idea why. It probably won't matter so
much as these are generally quite obscure file types, and if you really
need to play them that badly, then you are strange.

2. If the first method doesn't work, try this one:
Open winamp.ini found in either your winamp main directory or in
.x:\documents and settings\userapplication data\winamp if you were
boring and configured it that way. Look for a line starting with
extlist. You will see a list of all registered, but not necessarily
all associated extensions, not necessarily
in order. Here is mine as an example, although yours will surely differ,
but this is known to work for me with newer versions of winamp:
extlist=AC3:VOB:CDA:MPG:MPEG:M2V:AVI:ASF:WMV:mod:mdz:nst:stm:stz:s3m:s3z:it:itz:xm:xmz:mtm:ult:669:far:amf:okt:ptm:MP3:MP2:MP1:m3u:pls:ogg:mid:au:aif:aiff:ra:ram:wav

Let me again state how stupid this is, and show my general annoyance that
this is necessary at all in some cases.

As with many things, I am generally annoyed. 'What this time?' Well, I
am generally annoyed at anything past about Winamp 5.08 or so for
various reasons,
therefore, I am using a slimmed-down hybrid of winamps with version 2.80
at it's core, using some old and new plugins. It's very stable. I've
been running FX Radio continuously now on three copies of these Winamp
2.80/5.x/other hybrids now for 51 days (up to 65 so far) without a
single crash or anything bad happening. It only died after 65 days due
to prolonged power failure thanks to a storm in August.

Mind you, for broadcasting, I am  using a newer one, version 5.2 to be
exact, just because it has
that cool global hotkeys thingy. I did try taking the global hotkey
plugin and sticking it in an older version of winamp, but they were too
clever for that, and only allowed it to work with versions 5.0 and up.

I find that older versions of Winamp are far more snappy and generally
responsive about things, and am still looking for Winamp alternatives.
The best option right now is probably Foobar2000, but there are plenty
of things that annoy me about this one, which I don't think I'll bother
getting into at the moment.

Tip: If you don't use it, uninstall or disable the Winamp library. It
will make loading time much faster.
By default, the Winamp library hangs out in the background and looks at
all the music,
streams, etc. that you've played, and keeps a nice index of them. So,
the more media you play, the bigger the database gets, and the longer it
takes to launch Winamp, thus, allowing it to get fat and giving it the
opportunity to apologize for it later... unless you either uninstall the
Winamp library, or configure it not to cache all that stuff behind you.

God, I hope all this crap has been informative and/or useful to at least
someone, as all this info has been obtained purely from experience and
nothing else.

Have a good slushy day.

The Talk2 List Jane and Arlene

2007-09-27 Thread Onj

Once again from the venerable grandmother comes this little tale.



Jane and Arlene are outside their nursing home, having a drink and a smoke,
when it starts to rain. Jane pulls out a condom, cuts off the end, puts i t
over her cigarette, and continues smoking.

Arlene: What in the hell is that?

Jane: A condom. This way my cigarette doesn't get wet.

Arlene: Where did you get it?

Jane: You can get them at any drugstore.

The next day, Arlene hobbles herself into the local drugstore and announces
to the pharmacist that she wants a box of condoms.

The pharmacist, obviously embarrassed, looks at her kind of strangely (she
is after all, over 80 years of age), but very delicately asks what brand of
condom she prefers.

Doesn't matter Sonny, as long as it fits on a Camel.
The pharmacist fainted.

Re: The Talk2 List MARRIED LIFE - Mary Ann unleashes! Look out!

2007-09-21 Thread Onj
out of my life and hide in a cave and spend my entire day on the
computer, but I would like to not feel like a slime bucket when I do. I
want to find someone who will be interested in some of the same stuff as
me, and wouldn't mind sharing these hobbies with me. I'm willing to
participate in her hobbies too but it never seems to work that way.
Every woman I've ever dated has always tried to take away everything I
hold dear, and replace it with stuff she wants me to participate in. I'm
a geek, I like who I am, stop trying to make me someone I'm not! Watch
Star Trek with me and don't belittle it. Listen to books with me, and
comment on the parts that you liked and disliked. Help to broaden my
horizons and expose me to new ideas that I've never thought of. Talk to
me on an intellectual level, I'm not an idiot. Be a part of my circle of
friends, or at least let me hang out with them on a regular basis. These
are the things I'm looking for in a relationship, and your e-mail helped
me understand the way women think a bit better. Maybe if I had said some
of these things to the people I've dated, things may have changed for
the better. Perhaps if I were more open with people, they would
understand me a little better.

Thanks Mary Ann,

about. i an sitting at my computer but not using it because this message
comes to you thanks in part to Webmail and my phone. so now i can and an,
walking around the house and pressing twelve small keys to bring you this
abomination of a message. maria is hugging me and being otherwise strange
but normal, so i find myself in the bathroom sitting on the closed lid of
the, um, pouty? no not that at all! it would seem that t9 doesn't have the
word potty, so adding it as i just did is advised, should any of you find
yourself in this situation.
now i will take this time to use the facilities and then close out with a
flush. (does the expected but you don't get to hear it.:)
oh know! 1 turned into 2 so now i gotta poo! wow, can you guys believe
that poo is actually in the dictionary? i can't.
ok so the moral of the story: do not, sit on the pot and write on a phone
unless the lid is in the upright position, or you will regret it.
oh, and of course, don't write long, pointless emails either because,
well, they're pointless right?maria should now commence getting the now
clean washing out and putting it away.

The Talk2 List Ladder VS Latter

2007-08-19 Thread Onj
From a book that I'm currently reading, comes the following:  I think it 

makes this problem easier to understand.

  We went in and found a young guy in new BDUs behind the counter. He was 
a cheerful corn-fed country boy. He looked like he was working in his dad's 
hardware store, and he looked like it was his life's ambition. He was 
enthusiastic. I told him we were interested in construction equipment. He 
opened a manual the size of eight phone books. Found the correct section. I 
asked him to find listings for crowbars. He licked his forefinger and 
turned pages and found two entries. Prybar, general issue, long, claw on 
one end and then crowbar; general issue, short, claw on both ends. I asked 
him to show us an example of the latter.

The Talk2 List FS: Midi modules Edirol SD-20 Roland XV-5050

2007-07-25 Thread Onj
Hello.  I have the following equipment for sale.  Equipment is being sould 
due to lack of use in recent months, and it's getting annoyed with simply 
sitting on my computer table.
For the sake of keeping this message short, I haven't provided discriptions 
from manufacturer's websites etc, but for more info, just reply to me and 
I'll explain anything you want.


Firstly, Edirol SD-20 soundcanvas.
Unit is in good condition and has never left the house.  I can most liekly 
find the box, and driver CD's.  Unit is USB bus powered, and also has AC 
adaptor which I have, so you can choose to power it from your PC or Mac, or 
from a wall outlet.  £90 or best offer.


Next, Roland XV-5050.  This unit also contains SRX-01 Dynamic drums and 
SRX-07 ultimate keys which currently on ebay go for £139 as of last check. 
XV-5050 brandnew is going for around £450.  Would ideally like £300 for 
module (without expansions), £120 per expansion, and will therefore lower 
module plus both expansions to exactly £500 or again, best offer.  If buyer 
requires both units, will pass them all up for £550, or both units plus 
expansions for £650 flat.


Both units in very good condition will simply require dusting, which I will 
of course do before sending.  XV-5050 is missing some rubber feet however, 
and the volume knob although working fine, has a tendancy to slide off the 
metal casing.  This could be rectified with a little glue.


I accept Paypal or bank transfer.
Hoping to hear from someone musically inclined as I want this equipment to 
go to a good home.

The Talk2 List The Monkey Who Eats Everything In Sight! Uhh, ouch!!

2007-07-08 Thread Onj



   A guy walks into a bar with his pet monkey. He 
orders a
   drink and while he's drinking, the monkey starts 
jumping
   all over the place. The monkey grabs some olives 
off the
   bar and eats them, then grabs some sliced limes and 
eats

   them,then jumps up on the pool table, grabs the cue
   ball, sticks it in his mouth and swallows it whole.
   The bartender screams at the guy, Did you see what 
your
   monkey just did? The guy says, No, what? He 
just ate

   the cue ball off my pool table - whole! says the
   bartender. Yeah, that doesn't surprise me, 
replies the
   patron. He eats everything in sight, the little 
twerp.
   I'll pay for the cue ball and stuff. He finishes 
his
   drink, pays his bill, and leaves. Two weeks later 
he's
   in the bar again, and he has his monkey with him. 
He
   orders a drink and the monkey starts running around 
the

   bar again.

   While the man is drinking, the monkey finds a 
maraschino
   cherry on the bar. He grabs it, sticks it up his 
butt,
   pulls it out, and eats it. The bartender is 
disgusted.
   Did you see what your monkey did now? Now what? 
asks
   the patron. Well, he stuck a maraschino cherry up 
his

   butt, then pulled it out and ate it! says the
   barkeeper.
   Yeah, that doesn't surprise me, replies the 
patron.
   He still eats everything in sight, but ever since 
he
   ate that huge cue ball he measures everything 
first!

Was that captivating?  Was it as useful as a cabbage patch in heat?  Was it 
I ask you, as tasteless as a dead monotonic piano tuner falling from the 
boxes of Latzish?  I figured you'd say yes, no, yes.  OR perhaps yes, no, 
no.  Or perhaps no, yes, yes.  Or if you're really mad, yes, yes, yes! 
It's all subjective however.  It doesn't even matter in the grand scheme of 
things.  what matters is that I'm bored.  It's Friday evening, this list is 
deader than a mouse in a mouse-trap that's been left for 30  years and 30 
months, my old 233 server that ended up in a chute some months ago, and 
thus it is boring.
This has to change.  I don't know who will change it besides myself, but 
someone, somewhere, somehow, has to do something.  It's that important.  If 
nobody does, then what will the world think?  Probably not much as it won't 
care, but it will come to get you.  And it will come to take you away and 
you will never be heard from, or of, again.  Would you like that?  do you 
know the subsequent dangers of such a thing?  I live in a country where 50 
HZ prevails.  How many on this list also live in a country where 50 HZ 
prevails?  there are a lot of you where the good old 60 takes precedence 
but not I might add, here.
Also, what percentage of people are within the 5 FT to 6 FT range?  All 
questions I have wondered about but never been bothered to actually find 
out.  How many are below it, and how many above?  There are some very scary 
and tall people out there you know, and I know some of them.  There are 
equally some very small and short, just as scary people out there you know, 
and my sister is one of them.  However she's too young to answer the 
question posed above.  That doesn't mean she doesn't qualify or anything, 
but that's just the way it is.

FAAArt!!!
Do excuse me, I did have to let that one out.  Also, Maria isn't here to 
tell me off about it, so I figured why not?  Now when you read this 
message, you all get to smell it instead.  Isn't that just wonderful?
OK.  I will all tell you a secret.  I hate, and I do mean really, really, 
really dislike intensely,  smelling the food of others.  I mention this 
right now, simply because what I smell is making me hungrier than an 
Ethiopian that just walked across the searing desert, because it doesn't 
just smell good, it smells damn fantastic!  Do you understand that feeling?
Having the smell coming through your open window, and being unable in no 
way at all, to do anything about it, other than to close that window, and 
thus lose the feeling of freshness you've attempted to cultivate in your 
house all day?
Well if you do understand me, then understand this.  The smell is special. 
It smells as if someone. made me pick up the phone, lose my train of 
thought, and then run after it down the track and catch it, pummel it to 
death, jump on the back end of it, smother it in wibbage and carry on.
So about this food then.  It smells as if it were made especially for me. 
all food in all the world is made especially for me, you know?  It is.  you 
don't believe me I think.  Oh well, never mind.  The food that was made for 
me that I can't eat, smells like it would taste like the best meal this 
side of Sunday, when  my mother, who does cook especially for me, oh, and 
Maria, cooks dinner.  Then on top of that, the wind blows the smell of the 
food in here, so much so that I believe if I stuck my tongue out, I could 
taste it.  Taste it I tell you!  It's that good.
Maybe some pork, with a hint of garlic, perhaps a little mushroom, 
marinated in a little wine, or perhaps olive oil, and I just don't even 
want to think about it!  It makes me want to order food from the Indian 
place but I have no money.  I do have a card however.  I never thought of 
that.  Only problem is that  Maria wouldn't like it, because she's not here 
to oovle in the food I could buy.  Had she been here to oovle in the food I 
could buy, then I would probably buy it.  As it is, I shall have to satisfy 
myself with the freezer.  That could prove perhaps dangerous to my nether 
regions yes, some of you did already think of it before I did, so I shall 
simply rephrase and say, satisfy my hunger with content found in my 
freezer.  I think that is better.


I'm leaving now, because I've been writing this email for some considerable 
length of time and it has no longer got a point to it, though I'm not 
altogether sure that it ever did have.  Are you?

Monday 11 June 2007 11:41
Department for Work And Pensions (National)
New initiative to increase employment opportunities for disabled people
Employers should make use of the wide pool of resources and skills that
disabled employees have to offer according to John Hutton, Secretary of
State for the Department for Work  Pensions. He today announced a new
initiative, 'Employ Ability', which will highlight the benefits of 
employing

disabled people and dispel some of the myths.
With over 600,000 vacancies in the British economy waiting to be filled, Mr
Hutton believes that employers may be missing out on talented and motivated
staff if they refuse to look at disabled workers as a solution to their
staffing needs.
Mr Hutton said:
I believe we need to go further in getting employers themselves to do more
in supporting both recruitment and retention of disabled people.
However, we will not succeed in changing the attitudes of employers by
simply placing additional burdens on them. It has to be about enabling them
to see and benefit from the huge potential that disabled people have to
offer and the difference that they can make to an employer's bottom line.
Mr Hutton said that Government has played its part in helping disabled
people to be 'work-ready' - through programmes such as New Deal for 
Disabled

People and Pathways to Work - and employers should make more use of this
workforce, which the Employ Ability initiative will help them to do.
Employ Ability will be piloted in the four cities of Leeds, Bradford,
Manchester and Liverpool from September before being rolled out nationally
next year and will:
- Challenge negative assumptions about the skills and talent disabled
workers, and those with long-term health conditions have to offer and
address misconceptions of risk (such as that adaptations to the workplace
for the disabled employee are costly - in most cases the costs are
negligible or cost nothing)
- Build the confidence of employers in recruiting and retaining disabled
workers and promote best practice examples of how this is being 
successfully

done to the benefit of business.
- Improve employers' access to practical information, making it easier for
them to locate relevant sources of advice and support for their situation.
Employ Ability will advise employers not only on best practice in 
recruiting

disabled employees but also in retaining current employees who become
disabled while in the job - this is necessary in order to prevent those
employees from having to leave their job.
Disabled people cannot be ignored as part of the solution if the government
is to meet the target of an overall 80% employment rate and eradicating
child poverty in Britain. The current employment rate of disabled people is
50% compared to 74% for non-disabled people.
Increasing the number of disabled people in mainstream employment will also
help towards achieving equality of disabled people in society overall, 
which

is one of the ambitions of the government.
Mr Hutton said:
Our ambition must be a world where meeting the needs of disabled people is
seen not as a burden but as an opportunity; where discrimination is seen 
not

as an inevitable part of the culture of our country but as a fundamental
barrier to our success; and where disabled people themselves are never
consigned to accepting second best but empowered and supported to achieve
full equality of opportunity and genuine independence and respect within 
our

society.

The Talk2 List Automatic: Discombobulation of oven gloves immenant!

2007-04-18 Thread Onj
Hello.  This is a very on-topic message merely to ask why it is that the 
cecular groupy society of talkative squeeky chese pumps only now, after 
seconds of talks, signatures, piece-missions, lego buildings crumpling to 
nothing and finally the greatest and hugest, most diabolicle and uncouth 
boozlle, put all efforts into sitting down with 100 percent ifficiency and 
then jumping onto the wall over there, when that could have all been dealt 
with in a most queezy manner by the subordinate universal plug packs to be 
found almost anywhere on the planet?
I ask you fellow talk2 members, why?  I can't find any solution and to stop 
this sort of thing happening again, especially all over my nice wooden 
floor, I ask for your advice and help at this absolutely difficult moment 
of my life.
Any unusual members to be found free-floating on the ceiling are to be tied 
up and left to dangle by their toes from the zanfup light fixtures as soon 
as possible.

Any questions?  Any answers for that matter?

Whassa matter, Louis. Don't want to use the all mighty Windows Vista?
Oh, but that is surely too bad, now isn't it? You know why? Because
Windows Live! messenger users will now get a free copy of Vista flashed
on
their flashable bios chips. Ya know, a cute little mini-copy that only
allows your
machine to run Windows Vista or later variants thereof, with no
backwards compatibility for XP, 2k, 98, or earlier versions of Windows
products, even under virtual machines! Any peripheral with a line-in or
other audio capture device will automatically be disabled. All high-end
sound
interfaces will become totally useless. Video capturing is out of the
question too, despite the fact that there are no such hardware
limitations.
You are only allowed to play the wave files from the default Windows
Vista sound scheme, and only
between the hours of 8:00 AM to 3:00 PM, Monday through Friday, and from
10:00 AM to 2:00 PM on Saturday. You will get no network access or
sounds on
Sunday, since this is the day of rest. You will, however, get to view
the complimentary 3d flowerbox screen saver. Non-Christian cultures will
simply have to deal, or face the
consequences.

All you need do is simply use Windows Live! messenger for a year or
more, and your bios will automatically be branded. Too bad if your
machine is incapable of actually running Vista -- you're stuck with it
after that point!


That, is a pain in the ass.  Well I'm stuck then aren't I?  Oh wait, Toshiba 
have a lovely windows-flashable bios thingy so I'm not as stuck as all that. 
Hey, what about protection for the bios?  Ever thought of a V-condom, would 
that do it?  lol

The Talk2 List Microsoft outlook and OE issues

2007-03-19 Thread Onj
Hi.  There's been a lot of talk on the rockbox list of late about 
top-quoting.  Now it seems only OE and Microsoft outlook do this by default, 
and it is rather backwards and stupid.
Email clients such as The BAt! Do not do this to my knowledge, or if they 
do, their owners fix this immediately.
A member of the Rockbox list posted this url which I find quite useful and 
now I use it in conjunction with OE.  OK so it's not the best mail client 
ever, nore does it really follow lovely RFC regulations but it just about 
works.  Microsoft can never quite get it right can they?
Anyway, I've introduced some people to it already and they seem to like it, 
so I thought I'd put it out there to talk2 members using OE and Microsoft 
outlook and see what they make of it.

http://home.in.tum.de/~jain/software/oe-quotefix/

Directly from the website comes a bit about what it does and why:

OE-QuoteFix will extend the functionality of MS Outlook Express in numerous 
ways! Its main purpose is to modify message composition windows on-the-fly 
to allow for correct quoting and to change the appearance of your plain-text 
replies and forwards in general: move your signature, use compressed 
indentation, have RFC compliant signatures, etc.
But the second feature is equally practical: OE-QuoteFix can instantly color 
quoted passages (according to the level of indentation), fix bad quoting and 
generally beautify messages as you view them in Outlook Express.

Quoting  Formatting

If you use Outlook Express as your mail/news client and make use of 
plain-text messages (which are still the way to go, especially in the 
usenet), you will have noticed that OE doesn't exactly feature the most 
intelligent quoting algorithm; in fact, it's the silliest one imaginable.


The following will probably look familiar... This is a simple sample text, 
and as you will see, Outlook Express is going

to wrap this line. I've always hated that! And one night I said to myself,
It can't go on like this. And so I wrote OE-QuoteFix...

So there you have it.  That's a muchly cut down discription but I run it 
like Bewaresntp which is sitting in task manager but with no task bar icon 
and nothing in the system tray to even indicate that it is at all there.

Hope it's interesting to someone at least.

Gotta agree with you there on that one, Windows Live is a pile of utter 
shite.  I wish I'd never bothered installing it on here, but lucky for me 
it's just my laptop and not my primary machine.
When I built my desktop, I had kicking around on my server driver, a copy of 
MSN 7.5 which promptly got installed as I like it lots better than Live. 
Live can take a dive for all I care.
Contact exceleration has gone.  IE, typing in a contact's name and jumping 
directly to that contact.  NOw you type the first couple of letters (or 
more) and all it does now is to say found: XX contacts and give you a list 
of those.  To clear that, you use the wonderful backspace key and start from 
the very damn top of your list.
Now in a way that's like the Nokia contacts editor but in a phone, I can 
deal with that.  Where it's a list view or whatever, it should be like it 
always has been but oh no, they had to go screw that up didn't they?  Yes, 
they did.
Aah well, rant over.  Annoying little bastards are Microsoft!  Go die!

And no, it's not spam.


The Man of the House


The husband had just finished reading a new book
entitled,
You Can Be THE Man Of Your House.
He stormed to his wife in the kitchen and announced,
From now on, you need to know that I am the man of this house and
my word is Law. You will prepare me a gourmet meal tonight, and
when I'm
finished eating my meal, you will serve me a sumptuous
dessert.
After dinner, you are going to go upstairs with me and
we will have the kind of sex that I want.
Afterwards, you are going to draw me a bath so I can
relax. You will wash my back and towel me dry and bring me my robe
Then, you will massage my feet and hands.
Then tomorrow, guess who's going to dress me and comb
my hair?
The wife replied, The fuckin' funeral director would
be my first guess.

UFOs Explained at Last!

A revolution for your mind.

60 years after the Roswell UFO incident, and after hundreds of thousands of 
UFOs sightings, The Science of Extraterrestrials will change your vision of 
the universe. But most importantly, you will change the vision of what you 
really are.

This book scientifically explains the UFOs and PARANORMAL phenomena. But it 
also reveals why you dream and proves the life after death!

This book is the next step of our knowledge, well beyond Einstein. It is the 
scientific leap that many are waiting for! It is a great but easy 
breakthrough to understand.

Everywhere people are praising The Science of Extraterrestrials:

 It is huge, it's like a Copernicus revolution just like the one in every 
millennium in science. This may be the most important book ever published on 
UFOs. Michel Picard, author of Les OVNIs, laboratoire du futur (UFOs, 
Laboratory of Future)

This would explain all the paranormal, I indeed say all the supernatural, 
more exactly all the natural not already explained, and one must give to him 
the Nobel prize of physics. Michel Carmassi (Phd) Physicist.

The Talk2 List Out of man kind experience

2006-10-03 Thread Onj
Miscellaneous people have often told me that I should work in and around the 
doodle tree, but I decided that I didn't want to do that for various 
reasons.  I couldn't begin to tell you why, but it's just one of those 
things.  It's happened often before, and usually I will actually work there 
for a period, but then I just plain give up and no longer care.  This time 
is different however.  I might take a totally different approach and find 
myself living inside the outer rim of the wheel which makes up such a tree. 
I have absolutely no desire to continue living this mundane existence in a 
potted rj45 rhythm set, so I have decided to act like a subsistence farmer 
and move.

Having decided this, I wish for the following presented to me in short 
order.

1.  A toothless old bag of squeaky sticky icky stuff.

2.  Three of the very finest and most digitally exposed smart Martha cards.

3.  My keyboard is damaged CD in 30,000 different formats.  These can be 
anything from MMC (both RS and standard,) to dot com plack smash, found on 
the most outer regions of your nearest DVD, whatever that might be, to small 
and fluffy musical white tack found on the inner side of a gimpgrove tree.

4.  None of the above in paperback.

5.  All of the below in hardcopy, but again, not paperback.

6.  We don't like the number 6 so it has not been included for convenience.

7.  Nore do we like the number 7 very much, so it, like it's predecessor has 
been  excluded from this list.

8.  We don't like the number 8 much either, simply because it's an even 
number.

9.  No!  Simply that.  Just, no!





The Talk2 List Hardware vs. Software

2006-09-28 Thread Onj
Once upon a time, in an absolute monarchy not far from here, a king
summoned two of his advisors for a test. He showed them both a shiny
metal box with two slots in the top, a control knob, and a lever. What
do you think this is?

One advisor, an electrical engineer, answered first. It is a toaster.

The king asked, How would you design an embedded computer for it?

The engineer replied, Using a four-bit microcontroller, I would write a
simple program that reads the darkness knob and quantizes its position
to one of 16 shades of darkness, from snow white to coal black. The
program would use that darkness level as the index to a 16-element table
of initial timer values. Then it would turn on the heating elements and
start the timer with the initial value selected from the table. At the
end of the time delay, it would turn off the heat and pop up the toast.
Wait 'til next week, and I'll show you a working prototype.

The second advisor, a computer scientist, immediately recognized the
danger of such short-sighted thinking. He said, Toasters don't just
turn bread into toast, they are also used to warm frozen waffles. What
you see before you is really a breakfast food cooker. As the subjects of
your kingdom become more sophisticated, they will demand more
capabilities. They will need a breakfast food cooker that can also cook
sausage, fry bacon, and make scrambled eggs. A toaster that only makes
toast will soon be obsolete. If we don't look to the future, we will
have to completely redesign the toaster in just a few years.

With this in mind, we can formulate a more intelligent solution to the
problem. First, create a class of breakfast foods. Specialize this class
into subclasses: grains, pork, and poultry. The specialization process
should be repeated with grains divided into toast, muffins, pancakes,
and waffles; pork divided into sausage, links, and bacon; and poultry
divided into scrambled eggs, hard-boiled eggs, poached eggs, fried eggs,
and various omelet classes.

The ham-and-cheese omelet class is worth special attention because it
must inherit characteristics from the pork, dairy, and poultry classes.
Thus, we see that the problem cannot be properly solved without multiple
inheritance. At run time, the program must create the proper object and
send a message to the object that says, 'Cook yourself.' The semantics
of this message depend, of course, on the kind of object, so they have a
different meaning to a piece of toast than to scrambled eggs.

Reviewing the process so far, we see that the analysis phase has
revealed that the primary requirement is to cook any kind of breakfast
food. In the design phase, we have discovered some derived requirements.
Specifically, we need an object-oriented language with multiple
inheritance. Of course, users don't want the eggs to get cold while the
bacon is frying, so concurrent processing is required, too.

We must not forget the user interface. The lever that lowers the food
lacks versatility, and the darkness knob is confusing. Would-be diners
won't buy the product unless it has a user-friendly, graphical
interface. When the breakfast cooker is plugged in, users should see a
cowboy boot on the screen. Users click on it, and the message 'Booting
UNIX v.8.3' appears on the screen. (UNIX 8.3 should be out by the time
the product gets to the market.) Users can pull down a menu and click on
the foods they want to cook.

Having made the wise decision of specifying the software first in the
design phase, all that remains is to pick an adequate hardware platform
for the implementation phase. An Intel 80586 with 16MB of memory, a
1.2GB hard disk, and a SuperVGA monitor should be sufficient. If you
select a multitasking, object oriented language that supports multiple
inheritance and has a built-in GUI, writing the program will be a snap.
(Imagine the difficulty we would have had if we had foolishly allowed a
hardware-first design strategy to lock us into a four-bit microcontroller).

The king wisely had the computer scientist beheaded, and the kingdom
lived happily ever after.

| Hi,
| 
| Someone from microsoft has figured out why model talker will not
| work with jaws and window eyes and other sapi5 applications! The
| reason is a dll is not registered in the c:\windows\system32\ folder
| or directory. Once you register this dll you may use model talker
| with jaws, window eyes, and any other sapi5 application available
| that sees it. Any voices you create with the InvTool program will
| instantly show up in the list of available voices once you are done
| creating the voice. There are jaws scripts for the Invtool program
| to help people use it a little better. I have them if anyone wants
| them. If someone would be willing to make window-eyes set files
| that'd be great!
| Here are the directions for registering the dll. Please review each
| direction and or command carefully with your screen reader's review
|  commands.
| 
| 1. go to start menu and then to run.
| 2. in the run dialog box type:
| cmd
| and press enter. alternatively, go to your windows 95/98/2000/me/xp
| command prompt.
| 3. at the command prompt type:
| cd\windows\system32\
| 4. after each command at the command prompt you must press enter for
| the command to be executed.
| 5. you should now hear or see c:\windows\system32\
| 6. now type:
| regsvr32 mtttseng.dll
| press enter and a dialog will come up saying that the dll is registered.
| press enter on ok and you're back at the command prompt.
| now type exit and you're back in regular windows.
| Now go ahead and see if model talker works with your screen reader!
| Again, any voices you create will instantly show up in the list of
| model talker voices. have fun and hopefully we'll have some new
| screen reader voices to pass around on or off list to each other soon!

Dear all,

Aswe all know, a great deal of software and 
hardware used in music creation and recording is difficult for us to 
access. If you use such technology, or teach others how to use it, then 
your help is needed.

Tim Burgess has set up a petition in order to 
obtain hard statistics of the numbers of visually impaired people using music 
technology. These could be of great importance when approaching 
manufacturers and suppliers about making there products more accessible. 
By visiting the following link and completing the short form you could be making 
a real difference for us in the future.

http://www.raisedbar.net/petition.htm

Please forward this link to anyone whom you think 
might be interested in giving us their support.

Many thanks,

Dan Rugman

Aah but I think that at this point, the phrase at 
this point has been overly over-used at this point, so at this point it would 
more than likely, at this point of course, be a great idea to stop saying at 
this point for a very long time and go about our lives and have much fun at this 
point.
Good day to all and at this point, I will go read a 
book, play quake, talk on teamtalk and not write to talk2 for a little 
while. all at this point. That's a lot of things to do at this point 
isn't it?

  Hi,
  I think that at this point people are indirectly 
  or directly just trading insults back and forth at this point when it comes to 
  this topic.
  
  I think at this point, the issue is 
  dead.
  Kerry I think my question to you would be is: you 
  said But the weird thing is I don't actually like Patrick! Its his show I 
  like.," how can you listen to a show and not like the 
  host?
  Whatever, just thought I'd ask.
  Anyway, other than that, I just want you all to 
  have a lovely day.
  Ray.

it's an internet radio station; not as if she is stalking

and  fans? I did like Derek's quote though; that when she 
calls into Patrick's show  she goes "ga ga" (or something), but if 
she was seriously harassing him,  I'm sure he'd react 
accordingly. Right now, I see no problem especially if she's 
contributing financially. OK there may be some history I certainly

  Well at least you're not desperate enough to 
  publicly announce on a quite hight mailing list, when I say high I mean by 
  number of people subscribed, that you like someone, especially considering 
  that person is a member of said list. Of course, there's nothing telling a 
  girl you like her, but gees, to say it right out publicly is just desperation, 
  if you ask me. Talking of subscription, I'd be curious to know what is the 
  number of peoples subbscribed to this list here? Not that that's got to do 
  anything with the subject, but I'm kinda bored and hot and I want cheescake,

Yes, time for your daily or weekly dosage of This 
and that's enough!
Just, shut up and download it already. We 
know, we know, yes, you download WDGL as well, but I bet it's because Patrick 
calls into the beginning of said show. Actually I didn't come up with that 
idea, someone else did.
Don't listen to Steve or me though eh? lol 
not that I mind of course. I like real listeners, listeners that are 
interested for interested sake, not because it's me, but because of my 
content.

I wonder, if you were told by your idol, to put 77 
sugars in a boiling hot cup of water, and pour it all over your privataliur, 
would you do it, just because he told you too? I'd sure love you to record

The Talk2 List Microsoft Shuts Down Windows 98 and ME

2006-07-11 Thread Onj
Venison, get a real blasted os!

This is something you should be aware of, especially if you're still using 
them.
BBC NEWS
Microsoft shuts down Windows 98
By Mark Ward
Technology Correspondent, BBC News website
Microsoft is urging an estimated 70 million users of Windows 98 to upgrade 
as it
ends support for the software.
From 11 July, Microsoft will no longer help users over the phone with any 
problems
they have with the ageing operating system.
The firm will also stop providing security updates for Windows 98 from the 
same date.
Support for the software was originally due to end in 2003, but was extended 
following
customer protests.
Shutting down
Products affected by closing down the support system include Windows 98, 
Windows
98 Second Edition, and Windows Me (Millennium Edition). Analyst firm IDC 
believes
that more than 70 million users will be hit by the change.
The majority of these people are likely to be using the operating system at 
home,
as by now most large businesses have phased out machines running the 
software. Many
small firms are also believed to be users of the product.
Microsoft ended free support for this trio of products in late 2003 but 
continued
to offer paid support and provide critical security updates. This too will 
now stop.
VOTE Do you still use Windows 98? Yes No
Results are indicative and may not reflect public opinion
The change means that those still using Windows 98 and Me after 11 July 
could become
more vulnerable to many security risks, as bug fixes for loopholes exploited 
by hackers
will no longer become available.
In a statement Microsoft said it was ending support for these products 
because they
are outdated and these older operating systems can expose customers to 
security risks.
Mikko Hyponnen from Finnish security firm F-Secure said that it was still 
providing
updates for Windows 98 users who run its anti-virus package.
In fact, 98 users are not at that great a risk as people might think: most 
of the
new malware we see simply won't run there, he said.
Nevertheless, if you want to be safe with 98: don't go online. Or upgrade 
to something
that is supported with security patches, he added.
HAVE YOUR SAY
Unfortunately, it's the nature of the industry and Windows 98 has had its 
day
Simon Neale
According to computer security firm Secure Science, at least one hi-tech 
crime gang
based in Eastern Europe specialises in Windows 98 and produces viruses that 
prey
on the software's weaknesses.
This is because users of it tend to have little knowledge of potential 
dangers -
and are older, so are more likely to have substantial financial assets worth 
stealing.
Users of Windows 98 who have problems with the software may find an answer 
to their
query themselves by hunting through the support information collected on the 
Microsoft
website.
The software giant said this data will be kept live until at least 11 July 
2007.
It urged users to upgrade to a more secure operating system, such as Windows 
XP,
as soon as possible.
This could mean buying a new PC for those running a machine bought eight 
years ago
with Windows 98 pre-installed. This is because the hardware specifications 
for Windows
98 fall far short of the minimum required to run Windows XP.
It may also mean they have to replace or update any peripherals they use 
with that
ageing machine.
The turn off for Windows 98 was originally due to fall in late 2003.
However, protests from many developing regions of the world where, at that 
time,
the software was widely used prompted Microsoft to reverse its decision.

The Talk2 List Two nuns

2006-07-11 Thread Onj
My Mother forwarded me the following:


   There were two nuns..

 One of them was known as Sister Mathematical (SM),

 and the other one was known as Sister Logical (SL).

 It is getting dark and they are still far away from the
convent.

 SM: Have you noticed that a man has been following us
for
 The past thirty-eight and a half minutes? I wonder what
he wants.

 SL: It's logical. He wants to rape us.

 SM: Oh, no! At this rate he will reach us in 15 minutes

 at the most! What can we do?

 SL: The only logical thing to do of course is to walk
faster.

 SM: It's not working.

 SL: Of course it's not working. The man did the only
 logical thing. He started to walk faster, too.

 SM: So, what shall we do? At this rate he will reach us
in one minute.

 SL: The only logical thing we can do is split. You go
that way and
 I'll go this way. He cannot follow us both.

 So the man decided to follow Sister Logical.



 Sister Mathematical arrives at the convent and is
 worried about what has happened to Sister Logical.

 Then Sister Logical arrives.

 SM: Sister Logical! Thank God you are here!
 Tell me what happened!

 SL: The only logical thing happened.
 The man couldn't follow us both, so he followed me

 SM: Yes, yes! But what happened then?

 SL: The only logical thing happened. I started to run
 as fast as I could and he started to run as fast as he
could.

 SM: And?

 SL: The only logical thing happened. He reached me.

 SM: Oh, dear! What did you do?

 SL: The only logical thing to do.
 I lifted my dress up.

 SM: Oh, Sister! What did the man do?

 SL: The only logical thing to do.
 He pulled down his pants.



 SM: Oh, no! What happened then?

 SL: Isn't it logical, Sister?
 A nun with her dress up can run faster than a man
 with his pants down.

 And for those of you who thought the end would be dirty,


 Say two Hail Marys!
