NASA Attempts To Assuage 2012 Fears

LittleGuy Concur, especially after 9/11 (881 comments)

While watching a recent documentary on the World Trade Center, I finally saw the collapse of WTC 7.

With that footage and the other images of the Towers collapsing, I want to yell at Hollywood, once and for all:

"SKYSCRAPERS ARE NOT DOMINOS!!!"

Lori Drew Cyberbullying Case Dismissed

LittleGuy Good decision (408 comments)

If it hasn't been done, has there been a civil suit filed? With the lower standard of proof and the exemption of double jeopardy, it should not be difficult to win.

Then again, what was the point of all this? Pretty troubled girl dies, person does horrendous acts against pretty troubled girl, person must be punished.

LittleGuy From the article.... (245 comments)

Another internal email directed a Lifestyle Lift employee to 'Put your wig and skirt on and tell them about the great experience you had.'

Keeping a PC Personal At School?

LittleGuy Re:Guest account with Fast User Switching. (695 comments)

All of ye have given good technical answers, and they would most-likely work, but I think ye overlooked the most practical solution:

"No."

If you are going into technical support, this is good practical experience when your users want the shiniest new toy to add to the network.

Unless one of your compatriots pays for your room, board, and tuition. Then it is exactly when the Chief Boss wants the shinest new toy, that usually breaks the system.

Tales From the Support Crypt

LittleGuy Mouse Stories (855 comments)

When they first came out, people were picking them up and moving them on the screen, figuring there was some magical property which would move the cursor that way.

These days, (like at the local Borders) people have to be reminded that a mouse is *still* being used, and that the screen is not a touch screen.
