She keeps telling how she's missing that romantic side of me she says I finally lost when first betas of Windows 7 were published.

According to her, we would need some quality time together, not only those rare minutes my rigs are rebooting and I tell her she has my attention for 40 to 90 seconds (depending on rig, of course). She wants me to concentrate on her instead of my rigs. She keeps telling she would like to see me awake in bed with her at least half of the time I spend online. I keep answering there aren't enough blue pills in the whole world to fulfill that wish...

So, my question: should I buy an SSD to my HTPC?

Sincerely, Kari
Was wondering when you were going to drop in here. Hope all is well Kari.
Let's hope Smarteye, Dennis and co. do not find this thread

Dwarf, you got your work cut out for you
Lomai,
Too late! I found this thread....can't fool and old Wolf!
As for Kari but more for Angie. Tell her where the circuit breaker is at!
Then she can turn you on or the computer's with one switch of the power supply.

Sometimes, these are quiet dreams that we generally have no recollection of, and other times they are quite vivid with plenty of physical movement (thrashing around the bed) that we are more likely to remember, particularly if we are woken up during such a dream or if it wakes us up (a nightmare).

It has been said that a dream is a way in which the key events of the day are filed into the memory by the means of creating a story in which those events play a prominent part.

What is the speed of stupid?

And

How much wood would a Woodchuck chuck, if a Woodchuck could chuck wood?

And

Give a sentence with 18 characters for the following question: How many paws does a mouse have?

Dwarf, I'd still really like to get a serious answer to a question I posted for you up above --- WHY IS IT that nothing can go faster than the speed of light? (And do you think this is possible to change in the far future when we have developed new technologies?)

Stump me? Never.

Speed of stupid? Don't know, never been able to catch him. Running never has been one of my strong points.

Woodchuck's Wood? That depends on the type of wood, whether it is light or heavy, and the strength (or otherwise) of the Woodchuck in question.

Mouse paws? Mickey had a problem that had him scratching his head for days. So much so, that he invited some of his friends round to help him out. He wanted to be able to count the number of paws he had, but could only count upto 3. Any more to him was simply many. The following friends came round: Clarabelle Cow, Daisy Duck, Donald Duck, Max Goof, Goofy, Horace Horsecollar, Humphrey the Bear, Minnie Mouse, Mortimer Mouse, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, Ludwig Von Drake, Pluto, Chip 'n' Dale, Scrooge McDuck, Huey, Duey, and Louie. Unfortunately, Mickey soon got engrossed in reminiscing with his friends that he soon forgot why he'd invited them... until the clock began to chime. As the hour gong sounded, he shook a leg or arm for each bong. Bong... left leg. Bong... right leg. Bong... left arm. Bong... right arm. And then the bongs stopped. Mickey gazed up at the clock. He knew that there had been the same number of bongs as he had paws. He stared at the hands (he did know that the short hand pointed to the hours). And there was his answer. It was pointing to the number 4.

Also, in a documentary by Stephen Hawkings, he said that as you speed up, time slows down for you. Reaching the speed of light will cause the time to stop for you, giving you a infinite life but that aint possible as nothing is immortal in this world.

He said a example like that "An object can only reach 99.99% of the speed of light. If u were in a train going that speed and u run forwards to speed urself up will be impossible as u are going extremely fast and time will slow itself prohibiting you to exceed the speed of light."

Are these answers supposed to be as exacting an answer as possible? If so, I don't believe those are correct answers. Especially my third question - that was more than 18 characters long. Characters as in - textual characters (18 letters/punctuations,etc), not animated characters.
