Do you guys have those Christmas calendars with the chocolate countdown days? If so, what chocolate did you get today?

I got a heart box, which has nothing to do with Christmas whatsoever...

computer question for you guys/gals

Okay... when I installed my scanner.... my printer stopped working. My scanner is a USB scanner so it really has no interaction with the printer where as the printer is connected to the computer through my external zip drive. The zip drive works fine.

At first I was getting "out of paper" errors... when there was definitely paper in the printer. I've checked the connections numerous times and reinstalled the driver a couple of times. The printer monitor is not finding the printer... it has it listed under printers it's monitoring but if you clck on it it has a big X and says it can't find it. When I try to print the little print dialogue box icon inthe system tray has a question mark and when you open it it says user intervention required.

What could the problem be? I don't know what else to do other than sit here and uninstall/reinstall the thing... It's an Epson Stylus 640 if you need to know. Inkjet. I've never had problems with it before. I'm running an older machine... it's just a Celeron 366 MHz computer... I built it myself. So it's not like I don't know a thing or two about computers. Lol. Anyway... any suggestions? I'm just frustrated now.

I'm gonna get a new printer I think when I get my new computer but right now I just don't wanna spend the money.

telephone number search

I know there's an easy way to do this, but since I'm looking for a business, that complicates it a bit.

What I have is a possible address (it's next to 1954, but a different building, so I believe it's 1955) on University Drive in Tempe, Arizona. I lost my jacket, so I want to call this business and see if I left it in their parking lot. I'd visit the place myself, but I live an hour and a half away. :-/ How can I look up a business with its address and get its telephone number?

QwestDex was my first idea, but it says "Category" and "Business Name" or "Brand Name" and "State" fields are required. I don't have a business name. :-/ I think my only other option is to call the Big Fish again and ask them if they know what the next building over is. :-/ I'd like to avoid that if possible, but if it's inevitable, I'll do it.

Parking Ticket!

Okay so I got a parking ticket a few weeks ago, and I just checked the nyc parking ticket database and neither the ticket number or my license plate number were in the system. Should I pay it? What happens if you don't pay a parking ticket?

ps- Its for $105 dollars!

I have no voice right now, due to a cold (lots of congestion, etc). My general health has improved, but my voice is still gone. I have to go back to work tomorrow and need it back! Any ideas? I've been drinking tea with honey.


I am trying to find the words to this song. (the one listed in "Current Music") I have looked all over the net but I can't find anything.

Pavoratti is singing it in Italian and Jon Bongiovi is singing it in english. It's an awesome song. I don't know who did the original song (maybe it was Italian?) so I can't do a search that way.

my favorite t-shirt

i have this old college t-shirt from my freshman year. it's current state is beyond repair, but i find myself hanging on to it for sentimental value. it is full of holes, faded, and has bleach marks on it (from wearing it while i clean).
does anyone else have a particular article of clothing that they just can't bear to part with? is there a story behind this?
