Don't they create a huge blind spot when driving?

I saw Barbarella when I was 11 years old! Yup, the theatre somehow ended up playing it for the Saturday Matinee. Cost me 25 cents. I remember my jaw hanging open in amazement (not at the quality of the cinema, but at Jane Fonda nude). This was in 1969 in a small town in northern Ontario. I've been hor - er scarred ever since.
They don't even do it now for Vista. I have tried several times to get Microsoft to give me the XP code for proper activation after downgrading and they WON'T do it. They offered to do it for a fee of $60.00 once. Here's what Microsoft says they WILL do (but won't).
"When an end user is using their downgrade
rights offered under the License Terms in
Windows Vista Business and Ultimate versions
and they use both Windows XP media and a
product key that was previously activated, they
will be unable to activate on-line over the
Internet, due to the hardware conﬁguration
change when installing on the Vista system. In
these cases the end user will be prompted to
call the Activation Support Line and explain
their circumstances to the Customer Service
Representative. Once it is determined that the
end user has a valid Vista Business or Ultimate
license, the Customer Service Representative will
help them activate their software."
Here's the full pdf of what Microsoft says your downgrade rights are (but they ignore it).
Yes, Microsoft will help you downgrade to Windows XP from Vista for $60.00. It happened to me. They gave me the runaround for about 4 hours before a woman (a supervisor) offered to help me downgrade for $60.00. This despite what this document states.
Where do I sign up.
"crying children bewildered by the sight of Santa having a sneaky fag"
Everyone knows Santa smokes a pipe, and I quote Clement Moore;
"The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth,
And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath;"
I guess sometimes Santa just doesn't have time to pack a pipe and was sneaking a quick cigarette to save some time.
Click on tools then put a check beside menu bar. I just had to open IE7 to find that out as I'm a Firefox user. FF3 works OK except for Hotmail sign on. Nothing appears in in the email address bar even though I have told it to remember my email address, and then when I hit the first letter of my email address it pops up with an extra letter in it. Kind of annoying but not a deal breaker.
pre cgi'd I guess
There's an old joke that goes something like this. A missionary in Africa was attending a village where he was trying to teach the head man english. as they walked the perimeter of the village the missionary would point out objects and say their name aloud and the head man would repeat the word. "Tree", the missionary said and the man would repeat "tree". "Stick", the missionary said and the man would repeat "stick". Suddenly they came accross a man and womam making love. Embarassed, the missionary said "Man riding bike" and the head man became enraged, ran over and beat the other male to death. "Man riding my bike" said the head man.
