The worst I get is a persistent sheep next to my friend's house. Though recently I have been seeing packs of presumably escaped chickens wandering around town on the roads.

Curious , where do you live?
You live in San Jo (How did I know that? Ask your Dad. We're old roost buddies). I lived in Walnut Creek for over 20 years, moved to Concord a year and a half ago. Speaking interweb we're practically neighbors :cool:.

To be perfectly fair, their chickens are beautiful. I'm an animal lover and don't have any problems with the chickens themselves.. but anything that makes that much noise before the damn Sun comes up - I HATES IT :mad::D

Today one of my game's servers kept crashing, there was some insane lag, and almost every game had hackers in them. In frustration, I rage quitted. Also, my foot that got crushed by a table 22 days ago has started to swell up. It is prrobably because of the damaged tendons, and it was even worse because I had to work today, wear these heavy duty steal-toe boots which come with no padding, and walk home in the burning hot weather in my uniform without a backpack or money (It was at home). Did I mention the job I work at gives you a half an hour break, involves dealing with selfish and ignorant people, running around, and almost ALWAYS standing? Probably not, but if your the customer, everything is fine. Tim Hortons, my first job.

But, that is nothing compared to the fact that there is NO MILK in the fridge!!! I LOVE MILK! I am dying to have some!! ARGHHH!!


I'm kind of glad I'm just a kid, reading all your grown up problems makes me scared to be one of you.

Well, as I have gotten older and drank less, my ability to avoid the effects of hangovers has also lessened. Most likely due to decreased levels of certain enzymes such as ADH and ADLH from what I have discovered.

Really sucks since over the past couple of years, I really can't drink more than 4 or 5 good beers at a sitting without suffering some sort of hangover the next day. And that is with drinking equal amounts of water and eating and taking vitamins and getting plenty of rest etc etc.

Bummer. It puts a damper on socializing and drinking other beverages (soda etc bleh) just doesn't cut it. Water all the time sucks too. I really do enjoy a good microbrewed beer of all styles. A few everynight makes no difference, but more than that I know the next day I will really feel it. Now I have greying hair, put on a few extra pounds, things like that and I don't care, but for some reason this actually bothers me. :(

Far cry from years ago when I put away 12-18 beers at a picnic and barely noticed it the next day, if at all.

Found a tick on me, probably picked it up when I went swimming in the lake yesterday... then caught another one crawling up my sock after being outside for less than a minute. This place was already buggy, I hope I don't have to be here to see the full effects of the warming climate.

I haven't had a drink in.........hell, I forget. But I still have hangovers. In fact, I have come to the conclusion that all those hangovers from the college days weren't from alchohol but from staying up so late. If I stay up too late now, I'll have the same hangover symptoms I remember from those wild nights. Old age. Its a *****.....and then you die....:cool:

i can relate to that. when i was younger i could drink myself senseless and would be ok again the next day. nowadays, after semi-heavy drinking the hangover sometimes sticks around for two days. i try to drink less because of it, but you know how it is on parties. once you're half-drunk it's not easy to stop. sometimes i wish i would puke more often, i would feel better the next day. but i seem to have an iron stomach and inducing vomiting isn't my style ;). going for a walk always improved the situation, that is the only thing that helps besides drinking lots of water.
some of my hair starts to turn grey as well, at least it doesn't fall out yet :cool:

Bah!
The problem is as you get older you have to dig deep to find that little bit of extra energy to keep you going, drinking does not help at all.

So over the last few years I've cut out the beer and anything considered strong.
I have a bit of wine (I live in France) which I have managed to convince myself is good for the soul :D.
I have a bottle of schnapps that I keep for "medicinal purposes" but as I am pretty much in good health and have not had a cold/flu this year, remains unopened (mirabelle, hand distiled /51

So today f-in Beiber played a concert here, just that's enough to make it a FUUU day. Bloody hell, the city was full of screaming teenage girls. And no, that's not a positive thing... god they're annoying.

Like one guy on the radio said it "Oslo town is full of moist Hello Kitty panties" :p

They call it google fail... I call it failure to check your work.

I guess they (the reporters/producers) believe everything they see and hear from any source. oh wait... its the news media. Of course they do :p

Okay, I'm having a problem with some jpg and mpeg files being inaccessible after moving them from place to place within my external drive. Now, before the pr0n jokes start, if this was just about porn pics I wouldn't come here to ask for help. These are photos and movies of family and friends so they are quite irreplaceable to me. Honestly, the fix is probably so simple that it'll end up being embarrassing, but I just can't seem to get these things to display. Halp.

So, to start, I'm working within an external drive. I have different folders setup for different events/people etc. I also had a bunch of free floating pics that weren't resting inside one of these folders because I was being lazy at the time I added them to the drive. So what I was doing was cleaning my drive up and putting the pics, by highlighting a big batch of them and dragging them, into an appropriate folder. Now, some of the free floating pics were apparently duplicates of pics that were already residing in said folders. So when I moved these pics into the folders I was given the 'these files already exist in this folder, would you like to replace them' message, to which I would say 'yes to all'. Then, I would go into those folders and double-click on the jpg files I just moved, this is where it gets weird, the file would open the Windows Picture and Fax Viewer by default, but instead of displaying the pic it would say 'no preview available'. Okay. So I try opening one of these jpg's in Paint, 'access denied'. Try to open it in GIMP, 'permission denied'.

What the hell is causing this? I mean, how many millions of times have I done this before, moving files around between folders etc and I've never had this happen.. so frustrating and frankly, embarrassing. I've been going into every submenu possible, nothing is working. What's also strange is that if I hover my mouse over any of the pics, it will tell me the size of the pic. I have these in thumbnail view within the folders and instead of showing a thumb of the pic it shows the standard jpeg icon with the little sunset over the water. Any ideas on how to get these jpeg/mpeg files to come correct?

Rez, try right-clicking the top folder and going to Properties > Security > Edit
Just add Everyone with Full Control if possible, or go into Advanced > Owner and set yourself as owner.

You might want to be logged in as Administrator or open Windows Explorer as Admin as well before doing this.

External drives and NTFS is a ticking timebomb if you ask me, if you have to reinstall your OS it won't let you access your files on external drives if your UID has changed. So best just set the entire drive as Everyone: Full Control...

Let us know how it goes yea.
