Now Howard, if her face was covered in ice cream or honey, you'd be singing a different tune indeed, my friend! lmao

Personally I prefer vegemite on toasted and untoasted bread. It is also nice with a slice of cheese on the sandwich. Also you don't use too much of vegemite, spread it sparingly on the bread ... eating too much is known to cause heart burn, and this I can attest to personally.

Incidentally vegemite contains yeast extract, similar to that in beer ... although I am sure that people have tried to get inebriated from it, I can attest that it does not work (not that I have tried that experiment personally, mind you!)
inebriated lol.... I'll have to try and OD on Vegemite - and that's a good point... She's kind-of cute under all that brown stuff. Cute and a little bit scary - just the way I like them!
I wish I had the nerve not to tip...

should you try to overdose on it. :lol:

Yuk on the Vegamite...anyway, nice to see you again, Howard...I've been gone for quite awhile, but hopefully I'll be staying this time. Computers have a tendency to not like me and break down. Anyway, I'm missing the warm weather lately, it's already turning cold where I am, and I hate it. If I could, I'd move someplace warmer. But otherwise, things are going well.

Still in wet 'n' soggy-as-can-be Oregon (don't know if I said that before, and I'm too lazy to go over my old posts), and my CPU of old just...died. Not a virus, not a hacker attack, just died, and income around here is rather scarce. Anyway, got one up and running again, thank heavens. :)

Thank you very much Howard...it was a fried motherboard, is what my CPU expert friend said. Don't know if there would be much help for that. Anywho, this new one is supposed to be more reliable (hopefully). :^)

Lets hope so:) Do you know if your CPU is dual core or quad core?

My work computer has a dual core, but my gaming has a quad core,
makes a big difference when I play Warcraft:)

I have found that ASUS is a very reliable when it comes to their
components. When I built my computers I used ASUS Motherboards
and to date they are still kickin:)

I'm not absolutely sure, but I think I heard my friend say it was Dual. My friend got all the parts from an unusual store around these parts called "Free Geek," it's a place where you can either buy new and used, or if you register for one of their classes there (for a slight fee), they teach you how to build computers from the ground up, and then you get to keep the CPU you built as you were being taught. They also tend to have a lot of items in their free bins every day (keyboards, speakers, etc.)

that is actually kind of cool:) Getting a used processor and such
like that is a good way to learn for sure:) If you can, build one with
NEW parts and watch the results:) The most expensive part of the
build will be the processor.

There is even an 8 core AMD (Bulldog) on the market right now. Then
the RAM will be next. But the prices for those are dropping as well.

My gaming computer I built only cost me 340 and It is Quad core. The MB
will hold up to 32gb of RAM but the ram for this is a bit spendy. But is is
really worth it! It literally smokes through tasks its so fast.

One of the most important factors for keeping a fast PC is keeping the
spyware/malware/viruses off the machine. You may not think that cookies
or other minor things wouldnt affect it that much, but it does.

Checking your registry would help as well. Each time you add something or make
adjustments to your system, it changes in the registry, most certainly the infectious
stuff. Viruses and malware get their power from changing entries in your registry.
Kind of like a guy that has a list in front of a fancy lounge, if your name is not
on the list, you dont get in. Things hidden on the net trick you into clicking on it
which allows the malware in. Then it changes your registry. Bad stuff.

sorry got off on a tangent:)

I make a habit out of deleting cookies/history, etc., quite often. It amazes me sometimes the stories my friend has told me--he'll buy used CPU parts that still have people's private stuff on them. Good thing for them is that he's one of the honest ones who, if he sees that, will delete it right away and not use it for nefarious reasons.

that is a good way to do business. I have repaired computers
for others and resisted the temptation to "peek" at their
personal stuff. It was not hard:)

I bought an old laptop an IBM thinkpad for 20 bucks. Got
it up and working only to find it used to belong to a
priest! No no confessions on it...lol.
