Troubling End!

One of Microsoft’s finest techs was drafted and sent to boot camp. At the rifle range, he was given some instruction, a rifle and bullets.
He fired several shots at the target. The report came from the target area that all attempts had completely missed the target.
The tech looked at his rifle, and then at the target. He looked at the rifle again, and then at the target again.
He put his finger over the end of the rifle barrel and squeezed the trigger with his other hand.
The end of his finger was blown off, whereupon he yelled toward the target area, “It’s leaving here just fine, the trouble must be at your end!”

The Ring

Dave took Mary out for a romantic dinner where conversation turned to the subject of marriage. Dave had been saving for an engagement ring, but he was in graduate school and in dire need of a new computer.
Mary was understanding, telling Dave they had the rest of their lives to get engaged, so he should use his savings to buy a computer instead. During dessert, Dave suddenly reached into his pocket and pulled out an engagement ring.
Mary was stunned, but after she collected herself, she looked up and prompted, “Well, don`t you have something to ask me?”
Dave then got down on bended knee. “Honey,” he said, “will you buy me a new computer?”

Microsoft to sell Ad space in error messages

Microsoft announced that it is selling advertising space in the error messages that appear in Windows. Acknowledging for the first time that the average user of their operating system encounters error messages at least several times a day, Microsoft is trying to take financial advantage of the unavoidable opportunity to make an ad impression.
“We estimate that throughout the world at any given moment several million people are getting a “general protection fault” or “Illegal operation” warning. We will be able to generate significant revenue by including a short advertising message along with it,” said Microsoft marketing director.
The Justice Department immediately indicated that they intend to investigate whether Microsoft is gaining an unfair advantage in reaching the public with this advertising by virtue of its semi-monopolistic control over error messages.

Download YouTube Video’s

Well this is the best feature i have found on the internet in sometime. Currently i am on a dail up connection and that last thing i want while watching a video on YouTube is it Stopping every 2 seconds to load.

This web site i found called KeepVid allows you to add a link to the text box and it provides a download link, so instead of sitting there waiting for it to download and only getting to watch 2 seconds before it loads again now i can wait for the download and watch the whole thing with no interuptions. Not only does it allow you to download YouTube files but also many other videos, as long as you can provide the original link to the video then it will provide the download link

Funny enough when i found this site i was reading a comment on a fellow blogger site several days later about the same website.

O and i do not encourage anybody to download videos and spread them around using this website, i only use this site for my own personal use to make video watching more enjoyable. Yay for me !!

Happy downloading
