The thread got deleted and I forgot to mention saving and re-hosting the image. I don't mind him linking straight to the image on my account, but he should probably know that I could modify or delete it at any time. Can an admin pass along the message if he doesn't see this?
| O-T Lounge|| Does anyone else like the end slices better than the rest of a loaf of bread? - Korkstand on 4/26/13 at 10:07 am|

When people say "backslash" as part of a web address. Of the three slashes ('backslash', 'forward slash', and just plain 'slash'), you pick the only wrong one?
I hear it most often on radio and TV commercials. Is there not a point in the process of making an advertisement that you consult someon...
| O-T Lounge|| Why is Quickbooks such a POS? - Korkstand on 3/18/13 at 12:14 pm|
Creating an invoice is so slow you might as well write it by hand. There is about a 10 second wait on the computer the file is hosted on, and about a 30 second wait when accessed over the network. It's not hosted on a beast of a machine, but it's no slouch either.
I have done all the usual tricks...

4. Harlem Shake the PC out of box

Some calls go through, some don't. Tried cell to various landlines, some work some don't. Tried landline to landline, some work some don't. Tried line 1 to line 2 of the same company, didn't work.
Anybody else notice anything like this?...

#1 I recently learned that instead of (or in addition to) hairspray, they use a spray adhesive to maintain that volume. Crazy.
#2 I live in a small town, is this hairstyle as common in bigger cities around here? How about elsewhere in the country? ...

I received a text and an email saying I was approaching my data limit, but both my phone's meter and calling *data# say I've only used about 15 megs. Checking my account online shows a usage warning on the overview, but looking at the details shows I have only used 15 megs. I did the online chat wit...
| O-T Lounge|| I have a few questions about air conditioning - Korkstand on 1/4/13 at 1:54 pm|
1. Is the tonnage based on a duty cycle, or if it were to run 24 hours straight? In other words, if a 3 ton unit was designed to run for 8 hours total per day, does it do the equivalent cooling of 3 tons of ice in those 8 hours, or only 1 ton since it only ran 1/3rd of the time?
2. Sort of relate...

Growing up in the 80s, I and everyone I know got spanked and I think we turned out pretty good. With the "modern" punishments like timeouts being all the rage, people who spank their kids get berated these days. But has any real research been done to tell us what kind of pansies these timeout kids a...

When I first tried it (11.04? 11.10?), I felt so limited by it and couldn't get anything done. The sidebar launcher annoyed me, as did the universal menu bar (like OSX). I gave Gnome Shell a try, then went back to KDE, and I even tried a couple of tiling window managers but nothing really suited me....
