It's 3:30 in the morning...maybe everyone should give it a rest with all the comments. In the end it doesn't mean diddly anyway.

In any event, let's get this back on track and get some links up for people to look at...something like....

If you ever wanted to fly over BRC without having to take a cute topless woman out to the airport along with you just to get an airplane ride, this might be the site for you!

Tancorix, thanks for that link.

If anyone decides to take up the powered parachute, please get professional instruction. Remember, you don't ever want to fall from more than 15 feet, hit the ground hard, or get run over by a 200 mph plane! I say this as a professional pilot and 'cause I like you guys.

Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day
http://www.m-w.com/cgi-bin/mwwod.pl

foment • \FOH-ment\ • verb
: to promote the growth or development of : rouse, incite

Example sentence:
"Clamour and misrepresentation . . . only serve to foment the passions, without enlightening the understanding." (George Washington, March 1789)

If you had sore muscles in the 1600s, your doctor might have advised you to foment the injury, perhaps with heated lotions or warm wax. Sound like an odd prescription? Not if you know that "foment" traces to the Latin verb "fovēre," which means "to heat." The earliest documented English uses of "foment" appear in medical texts offering advice on how to soothe various aches and pains by the application of moist heat. But the idea of applying heat can also be a metaphor for stimulating or rousing to action. Within 50 years of its English debut, "foment" was also being used in political contexts to mean "to stir up," "to call to action," or, in a sense at least figuratively opposite to its original one, "to irritate."

It's only fitting that Bob would have an issue with all this. After all he is an engineer and voices of dissent create more obstacles for him to work around. In other words this is a classic reaction and I'm more amused by it than anything else.

OK!

Fuck the "he's an engineer" excuse. That's bullshit.
If anyone has noticed anything about this thread is that there is not a link to any of my websites. Only links to fellow burners or info to benifit burners.

Stop patronizing these dumb asses.

??? Finding an optimal solution to a problem in the face of multiple, contrary constraints is the essence of engineering. May we avoid denegrating whole groups of people, put aside the ad hominem attacks and get back to posting cool links, please?

Still IMHO the absolute best antivirus for all platforms above and beyond Norton, Symantec and Mcaffee

Catches the ones that every other antivirus programs let slip by every time.

That's some funny stuff, I really thought this was a joke at first glance, but then you read a little deeper, some of my faves:

1st Place: "My Uncle Is A Man Named Steve (Not A Monkey)"
2nd Place: "Pine Cones Are Complicated"
Honorable Mention:
"God Made Kitty" - Sally Reister (grade 3)
"The Bible Says Creation" - Aaron Kent (grade 5)
"Pokemon Prove Evolutionism Is False" - Paul Sanborn (grade 4)

and of course the best:
2nd Place: "Women Were Designed For Homemaking"

Jonathan Goode (grade 7) applied findings from many fields of science to support his conclusion that God designed women for homemaking: physics shows that women have a lower center of gravity than men, making them more suited to carrying groceries and laundry baskets; biology shows that women were designed to carry un-born babies in their wombs and to feed born babies milk, making them the natural choice for child rearing; social sciences show that the wages for women workers are lower than for normal workers, meaning that they are unable to work as well and thus earn equal pay; and exegetics shows that God created Eve as a companion for Adam, not as a co-worker.

Just wanted to share some great advise from some wise burners to those that have some concerns about thier computers and the recent events of viruses that are going around.

I'm posting this not just out of concern for others but to also protect myself as for everyone that get a virus there is the possibility of me getting one too. (not likley but hey, it's a nasty world out there beyond the playa.)

So I'll start with my sugestion and close with the wise burners suggestions.

enjoy.

Sophos Anti-Virus for Mac OS 8 or 9
Sophos Anti-Virus for Mac OS X



While I would be the first to tell anyone that at the very least make sure you have SOME antivirus installed and updated, and I DO have to note that I DO work for a company that makes A/V software and that might generally bias me in some ways, I still feel obligated to say that if one is choosing an AV software that they look at a few different resources before buying and compare both features, speed of response and consumer and industry ratings.

http://www.av-test.org/

Even as someone who works in the industry, and is intimately familiar with the LOVEly world of dealing with viruses (anytime YOU hear of a major virus outbreak it means I am probably working overtime), I don't just peg my companies products (althought I think they are good) ...but point people towards the resources where they can compare and choose on their own.


-Chef Juke


For those PC users out there who are too broke or too cheap to run updated protection, there are some very good free programs that will protect you from the majority of bad stuff out there.

While we're on the subject, I must have fixed a dozen misbehaving, bogged down, cranky PCs in the last few months just by scraping out all the spyware. Some gets in without your knowledge, but others you put in there on purpose, when you say "Hey! A weather taskbar! How cool is that?". Anyhow, there are 2 very good free spyware removal programs that I use regularly, and I recommend them. Finally, if you're on cable or dsl and don't have a hardware or software firewall, you really should think about running one.

www.grisoft.com - Free anti-virus software. I use it now after I couldn't stand McAfee a minute longer, and it's been working well, including the auto-update.
Spybot Search and Destroy from http://www.safer-networking.org. These guys rock, and this program rocks. The product's free, but you can donate to them if you want, and I gave them a fiver.
AdAware spyware remover from www.lavasoft.de - be sure to get the free version, not the 30 day demo version (unless you want to pay for it, of course).
Zone Alarm free firewall from www.zonelabs.com. Don't get the demo version of this one either; they try to talk you into it.

These 4 programs will make your PC much much safer. If nothing else, run the first two, and they do 90% of the job.
