I'd just as soon NOT have a website opening my registry. Does it only happen at that website? Can you open other Word files on that or on other sites?

Funny shtick... butt I can find that on other sites.

This forum has been on a bit higher level and I'd like to see it maintain that.

I'm not sure it was Comcast who qouted her the estimate for setting up the security, butt she did say a friend of hers had someone out twice to configure her new computer and both times it was $100 per hour.

WPA, PSK, WEP, SSID, AES, TKIP, DHCP, DNS, MAC, UPnP

If any of those ring a bell with you then you can probably figure out what I have been doing with any spare minutes I had lately. I researched a few days and then bought some components online (kinda in the sticks out here) and then set about making it all work. My daughter had mentioned that when s...

I listen mainly to audiobooks and therefore require a player to have bookmarks or be able to resume from where I turn it off. I have a Rio Forge with 512MB internal with an SD slot for added capacity. I am pretty happy with it although it will lock up on occasion (once a month). Removing the battery...

I've gotten good deals and been burnt on ebay. Only once did I have a seller back out after I won the auction. I guess pulling the item back prior is better, butt a reserve would have avoided all this.

Saw King Kong on the bigscreen, pretty cool fx except the dinosaur stampede was a bit over the top. (and beauty and beast oneupped each other constantly mugging for the camera) Hard to top an original. Been listening to quite a few audiobooks. Ones I liked were James Rollins "Map of Bones", James le...

Wife is doing her traditional brunch this Sunday. A specialty which always is requested is a spiral sliced ham with a pecan praline glaze drizzled over it a couple times making sure it gets between the slices. As Debbie Reynolds said in The Unsinkable Molly Brown, "I could eat erasers in that sauce"...
