  1. Crud... I figured out the problem. It's a 64-bit version of Office, and somehow I installed a 32bit version of Windows 7 Ultimate. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR Now I need to reinstall Windows 7 as 64-bit, I wonder why the heck it didn't do that automatically. It's definitely a 64-bit system.

    I really like the original Punk-O-Matic Punk-O-Matic 2 is also pretty good, but much more complicated - for the the musically inclined. Hmm what else... Here's are a few good ones: Kitten Cannon

    Desktop gadgets disappear

    It sounds like your 64bit sidebar executable was corrupted, you'll need to replace it with a new one. This is located at C:\Program Files\Windows Sidebar\sidebar.exe You can get a new copy of this file from the Windows 7 disk, or you can ask someone for one. I'll upload mine if you need me to.
  6. That is pretty strange, have you tried setting up Outlook to automatically send/receive regularly: http://www.groovypost.com/howto/how-to/ ... -interval/ Or are you on an exchange account? It could be something wrong with the exchange server.
  7. I'm trying to install ProfessionalPlus on my desktop. I just installed a fresh copy of Windows 7 Ultimate on it so there aren't any custom modifications I made that could mess things up. Windows 7 does dual boot alongside Server 2008 though. The installation file is a 700MB+ .exe - it starts out normal, and starts extracting the installation package. But then it just disappears once the extraction finishes, and I can't find any extracted files anywhere either. I've tried it multiple times and using two different ProfessionalPlus.exe installation files (these are the official digitally distributed ones from Microsoft). I can understand that the files could be corrupted, but it installs just fine on my Windows 7 Home Edition laptop. Any ideas anyone? I've Googled and Googled and Googled for a solution and found nothing useful. There are other people experiencing this problem they haven't been able to solve it either.
  8. This kind of goes along the lines of that last image I posted about the Glass always being completely full. This is more like a "Grass is ALWAYS greener" type of thing for when you are standing in line at Costco or some other place notorious for long lines. PS. Thanks Trollercrusher for the added input on the full glass thread. [flash=620,460]
  9. There is a choice, but it really isn't like you think. There is no regulation or standard that TSA agents have to follow form airport-to-airport, they are basically told "Feel as much as you think is enough and wherever you want to" and then off they go. Additionally the Body Scanners would be ideal for most people, but even if you get a body scan it does not guarantee you won't ALSO receive a rub down. People with hip joints, knee implants, etc... = mandatory rub down. Again, there is no real regulation for "suspicion" of a body-scan. After scanning you they can give you a rub down if they suspect "something suspicious," "didn't scan successfully," or if they plain feel like it. If it was an uncommon event it wouldn't be a big deal, but they rub down A LOT of people. Read today on Yahoo about a man with a urinary tract medical condition who had his artificial bladder ruptured by a TSA agent.

    San Francisco Has Banned Happy Meals

    Yup, but of course in common U.S. society it is tradition to solve the symptoms of a problem, and not the problem itself. Unfortunately we do not live in a society based upon principles. Rather than educating parents on proper nutrition, the government feels it is easier to blame the company selling an unhealthy product. Of course, McDonalds is still horrible for marketing unhealthy meals like these specifically towards children.
  11. The new body scan machines are now in effect for air travelers in the United States and U.K. They emit radiation to scan your body beneath your clothes, and there is no scientific evidence that they may not lead to long term health problems. If you refuse to use the body scanner, that is where the groping comes in. I'd rather not get into the details - but lets just say that most people wouldn't even let their doctors touch them like that. Not even kids are safe, there is a video of a 3 yr old going through the process even against her will. Full story: http://www.networkworld.com/community/b ... ll-have-yo

    10 Important Photography Laws

    When you take pictures, or use pictures taken by people, you really ought to know what the laws are regarding copyright and possible infringement. Here's 10 basic photography laws that are commonly misconceived. You'll have to read the article kind of backwards, the bold list titles are FALSE and then it is explained why beneath each one. Overall it's a strange way to write, but then again a Lawyer wrote it. See them: http://www.wppionline.com/newsletter/No ... scape.aspx Only applies to U.S.A. copyright laws.
  14. How accurate do you think this is?
  15. San Francisco has passed a new health ordinance that requires any food "including a toy prize" to meet specific nutritional requirements. The requirements are as follows: • Maximum of 600 calories for the meal • Less than 35 percent of the calories can come from fat (nuts, nut butters, low-fat cheese excepted) • It's required to have a half cup of vegetables • Breakfast meals are required to have a half cup of fruit • Sodium limits • A multigrain requirement What Mcdonalds could do is just take the toy out and continue selling the Happy Meal, but it isn't very "happy" without the toy now is it? At least now kids in San Francisco won't think it's fun to get fat. Source: http://blogs.sfweekly.com/foodie/2010/1 ... _ban_w.php
