      Hey friend, I was reminising about the past few years last night; and one of the main things that came to mind was how much time i spent using DAL. I looked back at my last activity and just laughed how long ago it was. Ive missed all you guys, and a few particular names, but although I can probably see me taking another huge leap in time before I return to DAL, Im still really proud that the site's still going :) Im getting ready for my last few Alevel exams, and Ive been accepted for all 5 universities already that I applied to... (way before the entry date) How have you been lately, and you've moved house by now i presume?

      Bootneck, another point on the virus thing and Linux. Even by chance if you downloaded a virus like from a music site or from a gaming site, the virus is wrote to execute itself in Windows. In linux it would be like a blind man trying to see his way around. Whenever you have doubts about something downloaded from the net, just install Clam AV from Synaptics Package manager and use Clam AV to scan whatever you download from the net. You can also use Clam AV to scan emails before they are opened. AVG has a linux version also but does the same thing Clam AV does and their linux version isn't updated. So I use Clam AV.

      I was on the bus earlier this week reading the newspaper, but i was getting funny looks from random people. I thought to myself, What? Have you never seen some kid want to know what's going on in the world! Sheesh, some people act as if they walk around with their eyes closed for most of their time... they can be so arrogant.

      Just wanted to say what i was thinking about, hope you don't mind :)

      In this case then i guess i'm in Oxford for my birthday on Monday, i've had an early one today before i leave :) Bye, will catch up on what i've missed in the week when i return. Bye :)

      Hey bootneck. Just got my Amrel RT 686 EX Laptop in the mail today. Lcd screen on the old one fizzled on me watching a movie. This one has a bigger cpu and ram in it. Cost me 75.00 U.S. Came with extra Battery that plugs in where CD/DVD Rom goes. Gives it about 4 hours of charge. Got wireless going and playing with it tonight. He Haw.

      Have my heel fractured in 3 places. Looks like a M on the x-rays. Doc says I got lucky and avoided surgery. I had a ladder collapse on me doing the final sections of Erecting my Quonset hut style 25'x35' motorcycle shop building. Doc figures I'm off the foot for the rest of summer and maybe going into fall. Takes a hell of a long time to heal. Lucky for me I got insurance and a little moolah put away for emergencies like this. Thanks for the concern bootneck. My back talks to me at times since I'm 6'6" and a one man army when it comes to doing stuff. I'm the one of few white boys in a mainly hispanic town and so I have to go it alone when it comes to alota things, Happy trails from Pecos, TX :cowboy:

      I suppose all the working has found you something more interesting to do rather than anything else :) At the moment, we're having our house redecorated too... so i know how you feel about all the hard work :D I'd have never thought to "hoover" a computer. How did you manage to get collie hairs in it? :56:
