    Sorry Kari. Just funning. There is an old country-western song... Your Wife's Been Cheatin' On The Two Of Us Again.
    This one, number four, is IMO the one and only who has never done that, and probably will never do. Can have something to do with the fact she is the only one who hears me telling about loving her quite often. An average she hears it every day about as many times than three earlier ones (version 1.0, v. 1.1 and v. 1.2) heard all together in all the time together.

    On the other hand, I have no problems to believe one of the earlier ones could have done that, cheat me and you. Especially version two. She certainly did that a couple of times. With the marine core, Fire Department of Helsinki and a couple of football teams.

    Kari -

    An oxymoron is a figure of speech in which contradictory terms appear side by side.
    From the Greek, "sharp-dull"

    Some examples:
    open secret
    larger half
    deafening silence
    plastic glass

    In the use here, it was a way of stating that "better quality" and "American shows" are contradictory concepts. It is the opposite of a tautology.

    In this light "Retarded-Computer" is not an oxymoron, but a pleonasm, right?

    Or retarded-computer = moron-moron ?

    Or an example of a tautology, albeit in a limited sense, in that most computers are retarded by the user - "Its doing what I told it to, not what I want it to do!" should be the way most help desk calls start. :)

    So a "retarded-computer-user-helpdesk-operator" = "moron-moron-moron-bunchofmorons-moron"

    3) Files are easier to open...
    4) Quick launch shortcuts...
    5) Quick application previews...
    6) Advanced Jump Lists...
    7) Hide that desktop clutter...
    8) Stripped down Media Player...

    Thank you, Schaft. I've always interpreted this word (oxymoron) wrong. (Ox is ox, moron (psychology) = disused term for a person with a mental age between 8 and 12, slang for a stupid person (Wikipedia)). Nice to have this cleared.

    Did you notice earlier this thread how Antman gave you a great compliment?

    Hi Marvin,

    Of all the sigs I saw, yours is the most beautiful.

    Tews's sig is a great second.

    (personal taste of course)

    What software do you use for the animated sig?
