Ouch Tiffany :( ,those birds better appreciate that bath. ;)

I'm not a MS fan, but i'll admit, I like Win7. it starts up quick (even faster than linux mint) and has a few little touches that make it nice. and i really like canvas mode, but i haven't seen any themes I like so i stick to regular desktop.

In other news. talking with Connie Francis (kind of). To bad its about a parody video i did that used a song of hers :doh: So I have a strike on my account. I could claim fair use to get the video to stay up. but I don't mind taking it down if it bothers her. it was just for fun anyway. Just trying to talk her into retracting the claim so my account goes back to good standing.

I'm not that keen on windows 7 far less 8 I have had a new copy of win7 since it came out and it's still in the box much prefer XP I will get around to putting it on my desktop, W7 hides too much so you have to hunt for stuff you want to make changes to,I have it on my laptop.


I'll have to look up limpus lite...good to hear a recommendation thanks WWD as I don't know enough about what is trustworthy to run off and start downloading programs with abandon. Mind you, I've managed to figure out how to stop Windows 8 from constantly flicking open all the apps when I was trying to work in the desktop, so I'm a little less hysterical now!

You may be better with mint or the latest version of ubunto lite came with the acer pre installed but I quite like it.

No more frost, snow or ice, it's just wet & soggy here now. I fell the feeders standing in a bog which was our lawn. :roll: :mrgreen:

Are they sad sounding, those minor ones? Do they sing? That would be very interesting. :D

Don't have to know how, because it does work, and keeps on working.

:lol: It wasn't that, the stuff i really like I add to my favorites playlist anyway. I just didn't know the likes list was limited.

Plus, i have a hard enough time with organizing playlists for my own videos :lol:

That happened to me after the Christmas and New Year festivities!
Some of my clothes seemed to have shrunk for no reason!

Strangely enough, it took a few weeks before they miraculously returned to their normal size again!! ;)
