Miscellany

For you fans of ABC's "The Mole," I bring you this wonderful item.

And my final answers for this go-around to questions you have asked....
jiggery_pokery -- So the other day, I was going downtown with Jen...
carboncpy -- Yes. Realize I was a virgin before now though, so I'm still getting into the swing of things (as it were).

I am setting up a computer for a former co-worker who is going to a security conference. Recommended blank hard drives with W2K and Linux installed, and that they both be burned upon his return. So I'm building up the W2K and need Office. I could install Office XP, but the guy is familiar with Office 2000. So I grab my trusty CD for Office 2000 Premium. Get past the registration screen and realize that this is an upgrade CD. Since there is no other Office product on this newly created hard disk, it's wanting to find the qualifying product. Somewhere in the deep recessed of my CDs, I had a CD for Office 4.3 (the last 16 bit Office package). Put the CD in the computer to see if Office 2000 would recognize it. Worked like a champ. Frankly, I'm more frightened by the fact that I found a use for the Office 4.3 CD than the fact that I had the CD in the first place...

I've decided that I need another LJ user icon (or two), though I don't know what it (they?) will be. The license plate one is a bit drab and boring now, and the lemming one serves it's purpose. The Busy quote is a keeper, but inappropriate sometimes. Art has just gone away -- I didn't like it (and thus not linked here). Anyone have appropriate suggestions that I can work with?

I thought of a question! I'll go find your poll and ask. :)

Make a postage stamp of yourself! You should have a picture of yourself on your HD from your trip to Pyramid and all you need to add is "USA 37"

Then try using it at the postal office :^)
