And we're off! (Isn't that a given?)

Like the last thread, this one will end on a specific date, not a post count. I will say that it's more than one month but less than two.

Oh, before I forget, the fine print:

The Last Person To Post Wins Thread, general rules:

1. Winner of the last thread starts the new one with a post of these rules.
2. Chooses a future event which triggers the winner, e.g. post number, date-time, and records it privately somehow (yellow sticky, etc.)
3. Everyone has fun posting until the target event is reached.
4. When the target is reached, old winner posts declaration of new winner and also PMs them.
5. Shortly after this a Mod will lock the recently won thread.
6. Go to 1.

Supplemental rules:

A. Multiple posting (the same poster posting two or more posts in succession) is frowned upon, and no element of a multiple posting may trigger the winning event. Thus the first following non multiple post will win.

B. However the winning event is defined, it should probably take less than 350 posts and less than two weeks to achieve.

C. Posting of larger pics is discouraged (Modem users do still exist, sometimes people read the forum via their mobile data, and these threads can get quite long.)

D. Don't post any clearly copyrighted pictures.

E. The post rules listed to the left of your post box are all enforced.

Thank, Thomas, Scott, and of course Bernie. Can't agree that Brussels sprouts are a win.

You can personally win as much as you feel like on Monday, but you won't win this thread.

Good morning everyone. :-)

I have successfully connected, and formatted an external drive to my laptop in both Win 7 and Win XP Pro x64 - (VB). I now have 300 GB of external space that I won't be filling up anytime soon... However; it's nice to have it. A friend of mine gave me the drive; because, he didn't need it anymore.

In XP Pro, I had to re-designate the drive letter so that it would show up in "My Computer". In Win 7, it was assigned "Drive F", in XP Pro, "Drive G". Whatever; as long as I got it recognized. :-)

WINNING!!! :-)

It's "waste everybody's time with useless standardized tests" days. Today, the sophomores are taking the PACT and the juniors the ACT. Tomorrow the freshmen take the PPLAN and GMRT and the juniors take the PSAE (Prairie State Achievement Exam). Anyone who's not taking a test is not here.

Meanwhile, I can't make any noise. Both my desk phone and my cell phone are silenced.

Not winning, even if I could.

Poor kids. No message beeps. That will so upset their brains they will score much poorer.
