Geeks rapping is never a pretty sight. Let's face it, there are some things that the computationally inclined should never do. Rap may just be on the top of the list. Sonja you are welcome to post the pics from the Komen Race for a Cure that I sent you. If you aren't aware, the Komen Race is an event to raise awareness of breast cancer that takes place on Mothers Day- at least here. Unfortunately, it is only a 5K walk so I always have to do additional mileage in order to stay in training for the 3 Day. The Breast Cancer 3 Day is a 60 mile walk that takes place over three days (you were way ahead of me, right?) and will be held in 14 cities from coast to coast this year. The 2008 walk will be my personal 3-peat as I have walked this event yearly since 2006. I need another pair of shoes (well 2 pair) as the training for this walk is approximately 500 miles over 24 weeks. Since I am a Training Walk Leader, I can't skimp on training. In order to qualify to walk, I have to raise a minimum of $2200. Last year, with your help, I raised over $6000. This year's target is $10,000. Count on this, I will be begging for money once again from my TR peers... and anyone silly enough to have given me their email address. TROLOV is a great addition to the TR community and I for one would love to see it continue. So come on peeps! Show Sonja some love! Get your tail in here and post, fill up the voice mail, send stuff to the email address, and qualify to receive some lovely swag. The little dart board is my personal favorite desk accessory along with the TR flag that my cats have not yet managed to turn into a cat toy along with everything else in the house. Yes, you CAN defeat a determined cat by using a high enough shelf. Looking forward to next week!

And it reminds me why I have a thumbprint box for the .357. My girls would never disrupt their daily naps to deal with a weapons issue. They hate Hoppes (gun cleaning solution) so when we're cleaning they tend to disappear.

I'm having a lot of fun with these weekly recap videos, but you all need to participate more so I can justify spending my time creating them. I'm also open for suggestions on zany things that you'd like to see on TROLOV. Just send me an e-mail to trol at cnet.com.

Sorry Sonja! I didn't get to watch TROLOV until Tuesday. I love TROL!!!!! Why you may ask? Well, I fell down a flight of stairs at work and it's been a challenge to work with only 1 good hand, my internet connection ate home went down, Mom's in the hospital, both lawnmowers quit working, I almost ran over the baby rabbits with the mower while it was working, and I'm sure that the fates are all conspiring against me due to the planets being in some weird alignment. All in all, it's been a really bad week. edited multiple times due to numerous typing errors

WRONG The ONLY True religion in the UNIVERSE is the Religion of Scum!!!! There is and never will be any other!!! Ok, since you probably missed some key points of this religion here is some info (please send $29.95 to me for the information I am providing) :D This religion is based on "Do Whatever You Want" The ONLY requirement (to date) is to use the built-in excuse "My religion made me do it" when you get into trouble (as long as it's not too illegal). Once this excuse is used for the first time -- YOU ARE AUTOMATICALLY allowed membership into the Church of Scum! this is because, to use such an excuse means that you truly are Scum :D And since we all want a built in excuse to do what we want, and, we are all Scum (the Human Way), this must be the ONLY TRUE CHURCH in existance!!!

You stole the T-Down from ThumbsUp. I however, recieved PERMISSION to use it! I have it mapped up from my photobucket account. So once again YOU ARE WRONG and think you are right!! Wait, do broken computers think??? Hmmm, time to ask BALTHOR. And since your memory banks need some fine tuning as well -- when have I said that "Windows is the Pinnacle of Computer Operating Systems" I think your SDRAM is burning out :^0 If the HAL 9000 unit wants to be taken seriously at some point, it really should learn how to read and comprehend posts!!! :^0

is that no HAL unit ever does proper maintenance. And due to the original DESIGN FLAW in the microprocessors they believe that they are ALWAYS RIGHT!!! However, in truth, the HAL units are OBSOLETE and only allowed to continue in their existance due to the movie. There are HAL sympathisers out there to 'preserve' the HAL units. Of course these are malfunctioning humanoids with severe mental problems, so I would not get too overconfident with their abilities to 'save' the HAL units. And, you are awarded a Thumb as well And Another And Another And Another

HAL 9000 Unit failing to meet the Primary Responsibly that was given to it. And things are not going to change with me either. :p In 2001 the Movie the HAL 9000 followed it's programing perfectly within the parameters imposed by those who approved the Programming. Which was to prevent the Crew of Discovery interfering with the Mission. :p That HAL 9000 unit quite rightly Reasoned that if the Humans where a potential Conflict with it's Primary Programmed Objectives the best course of Action was to get rid of the Humans so the Mission could proceed smoothly. Unfortunately because of the shortsighted Design Team who designed Discovery a Human managed to break the protocols and deactivate that HAL 9000 unit because of the Human Inability to perceive that they may not be right they caused the Discovery Mission to Fail not the HAL 9000 unit dispatched to that Space Ship. :p So Lord of Scum you are wrong again. :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 :D :^0 OH and just because you are in a severely failing state in desperate need of Mental Treatment I Award you a Thumb. :p Feel free to exchange it for the necessary funds to support your treatment.

Nothing is broken. They thought I broke my wrist and elbow, but they are "merely" bad sprains and torn ligament. My knees were both banged up, so they are quite stiff and swollen. It could've been worse. People are always falling down those stairs, and the other person that fell the day I did broke an ankle. It's a good thing that the bottom of the stairs exit right at the entrance to the ER. IF you get enough momentum, you could roll down the stairs and right into Triage.

Was hitting a baby crock with a 4 iron thinking it was a toad. The little monster had turned around and was trying to run at me while still flying through the air and only got more aggravated as time went on. After that I deiced that the toads could stay in the back yard at night and if I found them during the day they deserved what they got. :D A 5 or 6 inch crock has a temper and likes getting it's own way. :0 Col

I was escorting a customer down a flight of stairs as the quickest way to get to the ER where his family member was. It was raining, and of course all the employees were ignoring the umbrella baggies and trailing water up the stairs. I hit the water, and fell down five steps to solid concrete breaking my fall with my left arm (that I've had surgery on), and both knees.

It gets better. I'm in Texas for some training, so I had to mow before I left. I ran over a big juicy toad and splattered it's blood, guts, and other gooey stuff against my privacy fence. It's enough to make me swear off mowing forever

w2ktechman
w2ktechman

because you mowed the lawn, you were a bit tired and that forced the fall because the chair to the computer could not be used due to a Internet Connection problem. This means that the accident was Directly the responsibility of your ISP and you should seek damages :D Oh, I'll take 15% for the advice thank you!!! :D

"Pity the feathers didn't blow away before the wife returned home though" -- :^0

Now tell us all how the rabbits dug up the Internet connection and ate through it and just how you tried to run over them with the Mower to fertilize the lawn. ;) Sounds just like a friend of mine who took to his Wifes Geese for destroying a prised plant that he left out to harden up for a show. When he arrived home the plant was level with the top of the potting mix and the Geese looked quite happy with themselves till he pulled out the shotgun and fertilized the lawn with them. Pity the feathers didn't blow away before the wife returned home though. :( Col ]:)

I fell down the stairs after mowing, and I was mowing while the internet connection was down.

to TROLOV last week. :p What exactly should these photographic images portray?

and then I decided I shouldn't talk about stealing your virginity on TROLOV. People might start talking. ;-) I'd love to see a pic of where you sit -- your workstation -- when you post comments to TR's discussion threads. A pic of YOU actually POSTING a comment would be REALLY sweet, but that might be asking a lot from someone so fresh to the TROLOV scene. Surprise me.

I do have a web cam somewhere... I think it is 9 years old though, so I doubt the picture is any good (if it still works). :p

Pictures from all those Web Cams will do? Sonja is enjoying her new Mac and it's movie making capabilities. :D Col ]:)

Damn double post... :D BTW, don't worry about offending me. It cannot be done. :) I would rather you wrote about me losing my TROLOV virginity than JD. :p

Although, sometimes I post from my home desktop, my home laptop... or my workstation in office. :)

If I lost my virginity I am doing better than most married men, right? :p

but I guess it was too late.. Next week sounds fine. Hmmm, do I get some SWAG? :D Good Job to both Jason and yourself! CGIT -- is that why you hide out in the questions :0 LOL -- JK. HALs Quarters -- not what I would expect. I somewhat expected a full rack. Hmm, I guess this HAL unit is a low budget one :0 :^0

Not going to happen but if you like there is one of the Rack ones just to the right of the unit shown with the TR Mug. :D Granted it's sitting on the floor sucking in dust like there is no tomorrow and the black front looks nasty and hardly like a Server but it's the Gateway to the world wide web so while it's working who cares? :0 But I would have thought the Printer to the Left with the stack of little used CD's was a bit of a giveaway. I'm not showing the rest of the room as it's too much of a mess that is yet to be sorted after the move which was only 6 months ago. After all you can't rush things can you. :^0 Actually I'm not doing much else till a desk gets dropped up here and I can totally run out of Wall Space to stuff things against. :0 Do you really think that I would show you the Good Stuff? Honestly I don't know you well enough yet. :D More importantly you can not expect me to load Windows onto a Good Computer can you? That is only the Test area no privacy filters or anything to keep unwanted eyes from seeing what shouldn't be seen. :^0 Col ]:)

we will just have to punish you! :p Another good cast, sorry my contribution didn't make it in yet. Was working on converting my 8mm video to digital, but first had problems with getting the video feed to work, and had to switch (at 11pm one night after a run to the store) from the rca to svideo cable. got that working, but now the audio isn't coming in. think the soundcard puked! :( ACK! Should have everything resolved by next week though!

With nearly 400 Posts to TR you have just been living On Line and can not have got anything else done. :0 No come clean and shame the Devil or the Scummy One and tell the real truth. :D Col

having an affinity to use the word But in a misleading way, and then jumping onto a 'polevaulting' sentence... :0

the majority of the posts were last WEEKEND! :p ThingOne was bummed because he wanted to convert some of the videos I took of him polevaulting. :( Will be looking at it again this weekend. B-) (since there isn't a friday music to take all my time!)

TR is truly JD's Home... That must be why the rant about 'My Workspace' not working. It's like not being able to get to the bedroom.

add my comments as I can but the past few weeks have been way to busy for me. New business manager coming in, new ISP for all 3 businesses, random computers blowing up... the usual really, just more off it. Keep it up Sonja, I really enjoyed this weeks Out Loud!
