Default OT: Now that Washington State

has legalized recreational marijuana, over time will Microsoft software become less annoying to users?

I was also going to jerk Ken's chain and say his photos will get better, but doesn't it seem his photos from Mexico are always better, if you catch my drift?

What would we do without you Ted.

Then talking of drifts and Mexico I'll be on the plane in the AM heading down to Cabo San Lucas...Take that!!!!

And talking of annoying programs I downloaded a HD program the other day and I got this really annoying "Start Now" program that I can't find the program files for to delete. I guess I'll just have to try some mary jane? or a cherry bomb....

And for you Ted:

Showing those photos indicates that you are a very mean person.

Do a search for Startup Manager - the executable is startman.exe (this is for WinXP and earlier - Windows 7 has a built in app for what I describe here). It reads your registry to list all the apps that are set to start when you start Windoze. You can select one and either disable it or remove it from the registry. Do be careful, though - before you disable anything you should google it to see what it does. There are a few things in the registry that look useless but are needed by Windoze itself.

I'll take my note book so I can send more pictures to prove what a mean person I am..
That beach is right in front of our unit we usually spend a couple of hours in the afternoon warming up a couple of Pina Coladas before dinner. I plan on catching up on some reading as well.
We will be doing some exploring so I send stuff on.

Mine is Win7, I'll get it sorted.

Thanks guys.

We drove in walking pace traffic at 35 degrees and pddling down rain. Thought we were going to be late...but no, We arrived in 80 degrees and ate dinner al fresco in a little place off the town square of San Jose Del Cabo,


Oh, I'm sorry...
