Just a quick question. I am looking for something in particular as far as clothing and it's pretty simple but has been impossible to find.

I need a short sleeved button up black shirt with a collar. I was thinking a blouse, but overall the material not important. It needs to be black cause that goes with a lot of diff colors(I have a white shirt like this-but cannot find any in black) for my job we have to wear collared shirts and it gets really hot in summer so we normally wear tank tops or whatnot and throw a collared shirt over it.

So any ideas where to get one???

So far I have looked in: AE, Gap, Old Navy, Charlotte Russe, Forever 21, Express, Limited, Rampage, Wet Seal(and some of those stores such as Gap I never ever shop in--so yeah i'm desperate to find this type of top)

I'm going to try Tj Maax, Target etc,, next but thought someone might have other ideas on places to try.

Evil Lincoln?

I remember hearing somewhere about an "Evil Lincoln" painting in the White House. I dunno when I heard this, how old I was, whether it was some comedian telling a joke, or what, but it's always been in my head since then. Does anyone know if this exists or if it's an urban legend or ANYTHING?

Do you think it would be safe for me (a Yankees fan) to join a Red Sox community just to amuse myself listening to them bitch and whine about how their bullpen sucks and how much they hate the Yankees? Would you?

This might sound like a pretty dumb question, but I just can't figure it out.
When I'm listening to a CD on my computer using Windows Media Player, is there any way to save the songs into My Shared Folder (on KaZaA)?

What can/can't go in the microwave? I'm guessing metal is a no, but what about plastic, glass, tin foil, ceramics, etc?

Is it true that nuking a marshmallow will cause it go get really big? What other fun microwave tricks are there?

computer geek question ahead!

okay, wow. I'm just a little upset.

I'm gonna fire off a question to ya'll before I head to work. This little community is pretty useful :)

So I had a cd in the cd burner, it was a blank one, I tried to burn something a few days ago and it failed. No biggie right? Wrong!

Since then my computer has been acting slower than usual, but I couldn't really figure out what it was. I run windows2000 (all current critical updates and hoopla installed). In the past hour I laid down to take a nap, I woke up from the nap about halfway through, looked over at my computer, and watched it reboot. Freaky. So I got up, let it finish rebooting and put my password in (it's my alarm clock so stability is a big issue) and go back to bed. The same thing happened agian about 10 minutes later.

I don't have the computer set to "reboot" after an error, so if this was some sort of computer error I should have been getting a blue screen. I'm not, it just reboots. It could be an electrical problem. That's not really the problem here.

I rebooted just now (not by choice!) and decided to check out my event log. Mmm... errors GALORE.

Apparently, the event log was getting about 3-5 errors a second from my CDrom drive saying "The device, \Device\CdRom1, has a bad block. "

That's it. It's been getting that error ever since... i don't know how long. The system log (about 2400 events) has Cdrom errors going all the way back to december... so it's not every second of every day.

I'd love to sit here and figure this out, but I've got to go to work, and if one of you know then it'll save me the trouble of googling it (and spending hours in Microsofts lovely database).

Is my cdrw bad? Is it just because of the cd in at the time? is it fixable? anyone know if it can cause random rebooting (i'm doubtful).

In case you couldn't tell, I'm not a TOTAL computer illiterate ;) So if you know you don't have to glaze over the details. I love this stuff ('cept when it happens to me, of course...)

And uh, thanks in advance for any help.

Peace,
Jennet

Whigs and Torries

What current fashions do you think future people will look back on and think are incredible silly that seem perfectly normal now. I'm inspired by looking back on the white wigs that were typical fashion in Europe in the 1700's.

Which way?

If you had to choose which way you died, would you choose to dehydrate in the desert, or freeze in the Arctic? Morbid, I know. But I was just asked this, so I'm asking all of you.
