Jessica Alba Screensaver
Could you, maybe, attach a picture of a hot-looking woman to each of the articles published in the future? Please? Thanks!
I've studied this picture of Jessica for 5 minutes now and I can't see anything wrong with it...not a single flaw. Maybe I'm missing something, I'll keep looking! ;-)
Some of your recommended software downloads that you provide links to has been horrendous spyware!!!! Please properly check out downloads before providing advice and download links. This might give IT technical staff time to do the job they are paid for instead of having to (very tiringly/ VERY timeconsumingly) remove some of this stuff!!!!
Just who is she, anyway? And what is that she's trying to wear? No thanks. Now where is the new LDAP? -or- maybe Samba, -or- Gimp plug-ins, -or- various sections of the ITIL... hummmm... Maybe I'm just tooo old. -d
Whether it's Elf Bowling, an unapproved IM client or even SETI@home, IT department are constantly struggling to keep unauthorized software off company machines. Does your company have an acceptable computer use policy that forbids users from installing unauthorized software? How do you enforce the policy--monitoring software, Windows Group Policy or physical inspections?
rick, I hope for your sake I'm wrong, but I suspect many of the female TR members will have something to say about your suggestion. Let me know if you need to borrow my helmet.
I downloaded the ARCADE! zip pack from TR a while ago. Big mistake; for months I was getting pop-ups due to that junk. Makes me think twice about downloading stuff from TR...
But really, who is that woman? What's her IQ? Does she grok Sprock? Who does she think would win in a fight, Kirk or Picard?
I work from home, so I don't worry about unauth software; I just install it. If it doesn't crash my computer and/or erase my hard drive, then I'm all set. :-D Seriously, though, to avoid crashes and other work-interrupting dilemmas, I usually only install work-related utilities. Also, I get mine from a trustworthy sites like TR.
I work at a small shop, so I can occasionally VNC into everyone's work machine from my home. If I see anything looking suspiciously not work-related I like have a "friendly chat" with the offender and the unauthorized software disappears. So far I haven't had a problem with this approach, and I may have saved a couple of co-workers' jobs. Oh, and restricting user privileges helps a bunch when dealing with most of my users, but in our field it's not uncommon to occasionally find a worker every bit as computer-literate as the admin.
Yes, you're right. Some may not view my attempt at humor favorably. But the image caught my eye, and I found myself clicking. So I wanted to joke about how such an image could raise click counts for articles. (I'm think that's why Jessica Alba was chosen in the first place.) Anyway, I was just free-associating in my previous post. I humbly submit my apology to anyone who has taken offense.
That she groks "grok". I, on the other hand, OWN the book- first edition and everything. You can have one or the other. You rarely get both.
I first heard of her on the short-lived TV series "Dark Angel". Recently she play Sue Storm, a.k.a. the Invisible Girl, in the "Fantastic Four" movies. If she's done anything else it's been below my very short-range celebrity radar.
Most of the women of TR will simply take a moment of pity on you and pass by. We understand that geek men are visually stimulated and NEED such things. As geek women, we are prepared to be understanding and tolerant of your odd ways... Failing to understand GG and Mae? That is a horse of an entirely unacceptable colour. Do not make that mistake! Palmetto, now you have the helmet off, can we step aside for a brief conversation?
Her biggest claim to fame is the movie "Sin City" with Bruce Willis. Her image with a lasso was all over the internet at the time. Here is a clip on YouTube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sbl2LxNZ2eY
