    I think you're fillibustering, or whatever, and probably secretly working for Apathy.inc

    However, I have the perfect answer. Line a collander with tin foil to make a hat, wear it all the time and act as if nothing happened, and if it did happen, tell everyone that it doesn't matter. :D

    Carry a whisk at all times just in case you need to beat it in a hurry. (Basic survival training, btw.)

    Remember inscrutibility is the name of the game. :|

    Don't make fun of the way I dress or the self defense equipment I carry. That is hitting below the belt.:p

    Ram-Page, everyone is just having some fun at your expense. Take it is it is intended. I have had my turn a few times here and I laughed along with the rest. I gave my computer a bath when I first came here. I filled it full of water. I still hear about it once in awhile even though it has been almost 4 years ago.

    I do notice that you seem to be having fun with it, but making fun of my hat??????:confused: :mad:

    :D There isn't an unlimited supply of tin foil you know, so find something else to wrap your turkey in! :D

    and what about amiga or commodore 64

    or even better where's the forum for basic for the spectrum ZX

    I'm sure if we look hard enough we will still find some of the punch card computers still in use in some Government departments ( probably the Miami voting services)

    :eek: One of my first summer jobs was "working" ;) in an Ontario Government computer "library" in Queen's Park, Toronto.
    Loud and kinda scarey, if memory serves me :eek: And those stoopid punch cards that the "programmers"
    (not gifted ones like you, Candy :p ) were always mixing up in the wrong order :mad: sheesh and yes the room totally froze my nunions off!
    I did not vote because I did not understand the question :p :D

    What about computers that are actually slow? I like to have fun on a low-level computer I built which I could easily run on 95 well(although I have it on 98/2k). Some people do want to use it, so the site should have support for them.

    Like I said before, not everybody runs on speeded up computers. Most people are very unlikely to have 4 gb of ram. VERY unlikely. And please show me your sources on Pro vs. Home. As I understand it the only real difference is a few more security tweaks. Really, it was a bad idea.

    Oh yeah, nice job with the poll:)

    I still have a Windows 3·1 DELL Dimension 486/25s which is just great as a Word Processor and stores private documents. Not on-line and no anti-virus either. Drive is a bit small though. FAT16.

    A lot of Professional people use 4·0Gb of RAM for video editing and I have Professionals using XP 64-bit edition which you can order on CD because their programs need more than 4·0Gb of RAM and 64-bit can use up to 16Gb of RAM.

    Not everyone is a Geek you know.

    Here is the comparison between Home and Professional.

    Btw, Jesus never existed, it is just an allegorical story http://thesaurus.reference.com/search?q=allegorical so, sorry to disappoint you on that one.

    (Maybe we could have a poll as to whether people exist, yes or no?)

    As for "Nice job with the Poll" I can only say ... phooey! :rolleyes:

    12000 Huh Looking good. :)

    Let's see that is 100 ÷ 12000 = 0·0083333333333e

    'Bout right I guess.

    ;)

    Let's do this one too. 1 ÷ 6,000,000,000 (One thousand million = 1 billion)

    Equals 1.6666666667e-10

    So that is 0·000000000166666666667

    And that is just the average intelligence of the collective population.
