    Boy I really hate people who think they are the expert when in fact they know much less than the average person. A perfect example would be Benjimen in the post "media that works for you" under DVD-R media (im not picking on him I needed an example of what Im talking about and his was the first I saw). First they will give their rap sheet like that makes them look more knowlegable about what they are talking about. If anything it just makes them look even more stupid when what they say isnt true. Then when you start pointing out the faults and prove them wrong they start acting childish and come back with crap like you're loser, lamer, etc. I know arguing over the internet is stupid but some people just make it irrestible. I feel much better later.

    I see that a lot. As soon as someone starts defending them selfs saying they are a god ete ete. Then you know that there is something wrong. After saying that, I sure hope I don't have any posts like that. I try to tell people I only play with computers for fun, and only really know hardware. Software and programing, I still am a newbie.

    Wow Rotary,
    You must really like computers. Most of have garden Knomes or frog in our gardens. I never thought of puting a computer in my garden. Can you follow a water fall out of the CDrom drawer.
    LOL, Just poking fun. I took an 86 (yes the edicational version before 286's) through it at a dumpster. Missed the inside, started it up later and it still worked. You can't beet the older machines, but they weight a tone.

    (I really have to learn how to spell and use grammer with out a spell checker!!)_X_X_X_X_X_[small]I am not a number
