i have a problem and am looking for advice.
i am somewhat concerned with my health and i remember reading that there have been studies linking antiperspirants with breast cancer. so i've tried a bunch of all natural deodorants.
except none of them work.
i don't want to disregard my worries about antiperspirants, but i'm getting frustrated.
any advice, or thoughts, or particularly effective deodorants? or reasons why i should take the risk and use antiperspirants?

any help would be fabulous. thanks everyone

Okay, my cat is still outside right now so I went out to call her inside. When I opened the back door, an animal slinked by and stopped briefly to look at me. It was medium sized, and tan. It looked like it had short hair but it was so short it was hard to tell. It had a pointy snout that made up most of its face. Oh, and it had a tail.

Does anybody have any clue as to what this animal is? I'm worried sick about my cat being out there with it.

Someone asked this in an IT community I'm in. Any help??

Moving Win2K server to RAID
There is one rather critical situation here and I'd really like to hear some suggestions. We have a Win2000 Server in our office as our only server. It runs everything we need - the domain, mail, Internet proxy, fileserver, etc... Of course it is plain stupid to put all eggs in the same bucket but that's the way things are. And just to make the situation worse - the server works on two plain IDE harddisks - even though its motherboard does have RAID capability. It is Intel S845WD1-E and has two IDE controllers and ATA RAID.

Is there any way to transfer the server to mirrored RAID without having to reinstall the system? I can free one of the disks for the mirror but I doubt the OS is going to boot from another controller.

Of DVD Player Software and Cooking Lessons

Or: Jeremy is a No Good Leeching/Cheap Bastard Who Won't Pay Money For Things

Two questions. Both of them basically have an underlining "theme" of, "Yes, I know it be better to pay for one of them, but I don't have that kind of money, so I want to know of a free alternative."

1st: The DVD Player Software question.
I use VLC.. that's pretty good, but than I checked out Interactual (I think that's what it's called) and in my opinion it handles DVDs better and I prefer the interface somewhat.. at least it seems more appropriate for DVD playing.. but their's that whole limited days of use thing before it's unusable. So yeah any software close to (or even better than!) Interactual, but is freeware or at least non-expiring shareware (i.e. you can use it long as you want without one day having to worry about opening it and get a "FORK OVER THE CASH IF YOU WANT TO WATCH ANYMORE DVDS, BITCH." sort of message)?

2nd: The Cooking Lesson question.
This is probably obvious but yeah.. what are the best no pay websites that give cooking lessons to check out? I'm like a complete beginner.. I think about all I really know how to cook are like peanut butter cookies. I don't know how to boil water. Stop laughing, please.

leave your turntable on

because I am an anomaly...

Background: I'm eighteen, and I've never dated anyone. Hell, I haven't even been kissed yet. It's not that I didn't want to, but more due to the fact that I'm shy, and also due to the fact that when I do admit I like a guy, he doesn't share my feelings. So, with that said, should I actually meet someone I like at school, what should I keep in mind? And should I admit that I have no previous dating experience, or would that just provide someone with the opportunity to take advantage of me?

Gmail and LJ question

1)I recently got a Gmail account and changed my e-mail address for LiveJournal. I used to have comments for my entires e-mailed to my AOL account which wasn't a problem. But I've noticed comments aren't been mailed to my Gmail account.

Is this happening to anyone else?

2) Now I have a Gmail account does it mean I now have invites to pass out to people? Or is there another way you obtain them?

1. I heard a song on the radio. The most I can remember is..."She was nice, naive and beautiful and he took advantage." It was really pretty with a woman singing and it was in a minor mode with piano for the verses and a major mode for the chorus. Anyone know what the name of the song and the singer is?

2. Why is the panhandle called the panhandle? Florida really does not look like a giant pan. If it were a pan, there wouldn't be a right angle.

It's my 16th birthday tomorrow! What are you going to get me? :D

lol That's not my actual question. Here's the real one: it's my 16th birthday tomorrow and I don't have any special plans. Truthfully, I haven't had a birthday party since I was around 9 or 10, but I wanted to make this one special somehow. Problem is, I don't really know how to do that. So my question really is this: what did you do for your 16th birthday? Did you have some sort of big celebration, or did you just spend it quietly at home with your parents/close friends?

Sexy sexy

I quite often listen to music when I'm writing to help with the general tone, and right now I'm writing a sex scene. Brain DEATH!

Any suggestions on something to listen to while I attempt to write? Anything you find to be particularly sexy?

Oh, but 70's porn music would be a big no. ^^
