A Few Mac OS X-related Questions [Jun. 13th, 2006|12:44 am]
The Question Club

[shippo]
[music |少年ナイフ - Quavers]

  1. I've noticed that when Mail.app checks for mail on my IMAP server, it will incorrectly report the number of unread messages. Usually, it doubles the number of unread messages in a folder (give or take a few) until I click on the folder to read my mail. Other e-mail clients (Thunderbird, Evolution, mutt) do not have this issue. Has anyone else had this problem? Is there anything I can do to fix this?
  2. Is there a decent ID3 tagger for OS X that does batch tagging? Ideally, I'd like to be able to do a FreeDB lookup on a group of files, (like EasyTag or Foobar2000 can do) but I'd settle for being able to parse filenames and dump that into ID3V2 tags. UTF-8 support is a must have. (Normally, I'd just use EasyTag on Linux, but it insists on writing gibberish instead of UTF-8 text.)
  3. Why do the 65W AC adaptors for G4 PowerBooks suck so goddamn much?
  4. How do I load songs onto my iPod?

If you work in any type of customer service, what is the one line you hear the most on a daily basis?

Mine is, "Your hands must get tired at the end of the day, huh?" with the #2 line "I'll tip you guys NOT to sing."

I work at Cold Stone, and I swear, I get so sick of being asked if my hands hurt. yes, yes they do, thanks for reminding me and then asking me to add fudge and caramel to your ice cream. I appreciate it.

My mom is an accountant, and during tax season, basically everyone says "This must be your busy season!" DUH.

So what line makes you want to scream every time you hear it?

Oh man memories
okay there are two things from a long time ago that probably nobody will know what I am talking about that I just thought of right now

1) A website where you could create a creature type thing and then send him out into the online world and keep track of it's progress. When you created it, you could select if it were going to be a herbivore or carnivore, and the color, and what kind of wheels or wtf it had, and eyes, etc. etc. etc. Anyone have any idea what site this was?

2) A program I downloaded from some website where it would generate acronyms for you. Like, if you typed in GJF, it would generate a ton of different things GJF stood for. It was a fun device. Any ideas, as well?

1) I used to play this game on Atari that no one else seems to remember. It was a maze type game, based in a dungeon (I think). The purpose was to find a key before a giant duck ate it and you. Any ideas?

2) Also, I've been trying to find the title of a book I loved when I was younger. It was about these two girls who didn't take very good care of their dolls. Somehow, they got broken and had to be taken to a doll repair show. The man (who's faced may have been shaped like a moon; or maybe his name was Moon) who fixed the dolls gave the girls a small packet of tea, so they could have a tea party. When the girls drank the tea, they switched places with their dolls. There was also this whole other world, where the toys went when no one was playing with them. The repair man was a king or something and I think a goose owned a sweet shop. Does anyone have any idea what this book is called? Or where else I could go to find out?

My computer is being really shit so I've run Norton Antivirus on it and it's shown that it has two "at risk" of adware files which are one called

grids bow dart\long deaf bit.exe (i kid you not)

and

nounjoytickford\updupe.exe

but when it tries to delete them it fails and when i tried to delete them manually it said that I cant delete them and to check that they are not being used. But I cant find them other than by using the search option. I've looked them both up online and there's nothing on the second one, although i have found something called bit.exe which could be the same thing, and there's only one thing on updupe.exe which just says to delete it.

what should I do? (that doesn't cost any more money). How do I delete the undeletable file? I don't know any other communities to ask and my house is full of technophobes. I'm pretty sure that it's adware that is fucking shit up because adverts keep popping up

Last week I had listed on eBay an authentic designer purse, but somebody reported it as fake and it was removed, okay that was irritating but people are dense so whatever...

Today I get an email from "aw-confirm@ebay.com" asking me to give my eBay account information, like username and password, claiming there's a possibility that my account is fraudulent. Does this seem fishy to anyone else? I logged into eBay, and there were no alerts, whereas they alerted me when my purse was removed. Is this real or sketchy?

Also, I had to get a new key for my car- because the last one decided to not go into the ignition. Today I make an attempt to start my car, and the just turns things all the way back, but no car is starting! The battery is fine, the key just turns the thing all the way back, what the hell?!

Edit What do you consider a best friend to be?

I consider my best friend a girl that I've known since I was six years old. We became friends in our first grade class and have been inseparable ever since. We walk into each other's homes and help ourselves. Her family is my family and vice versa. We even go to each other's houses when the other isn't there if we need to borrow/do something and our families don't mind. She's the only person who knows nearly everything about me and knows how I feel when all I can say is "And it's just like, I mean... yanno?" No matter how much time we spend together, we never get sick of each other. But we also realize that we have seperate lives and understand when we can't see each other for a while.

have to know;

a) why did no one get my attempt at humour last night? Does no-one here read Pratchett?
I was alluding to the bit in Guards Guards, where Corporal Carrot reads the pledge as "I [insert name here] promise to..." I was suggesting I was actually going to call my baby [insert name here]. Sigh, it's just not funny when you have to explain it. Or, it could just be it wasn't funny to be begin with, maybe it only works for Pratchett?
For those that missed it and care;
http://community.livejournal.com/thequestionclub/11778063.html?nc=95
Otherwise, feel free to ignore.

b) when does untidy pass the line into squalor? Or unhygienic?

c) Does anyone else who either goes to school/college or has kids that do, get fed up with endless money raising events that are NOT for a good cause and seem designed purely to bleed parents dry?

d) do I suck because I did not force my children participate in the latest money grabbing event and let them take in protest placards?

e) does anybody else ever have sex dreams where they experience events as if they were the opposit sex? Complete with appropriate sensations?

f) should I go to the centre and wander about aimlessley trying to remember what I need to buy, or say home and pity my sick husband?

airline seating [Jun. 13th, 2006|11:12 am]

Next week i will be flying out of state on Delta. I was planning on losing more weight to make me fit in the seat better, but that didnt work out. I'm not that large but I am 280 and my hips are wide (yes am embarrassed to say that, but for this question, i have no choice). Would anyone know the width of a coach seat? I flew on an airplane last year and im sure i was bigger than this...or inch wise was bigger. I also wasn't aware that there were extended seatbelts available and flew with no seatbelt on the entire flight. Which brings me to my 2nd embarrassing question. When should i ask for a seatbelt extender? Airplanes are noisy before the takeoff with people talking and whatnot and im a quiet person (especially when i fly alone). If i feel i wont be heard in a discreet mellow tone...i won't ask. Your suggestions please?

[madscience]
Did the Yamanner worm that attacked Yahoo! Mail yesterday work on Linux? The writeups just say that all versions of Windows were affected, but it doesn't mention a specific browser. Since the worm seems to have been pure JavaScript without any native component, it seems possible that Firefox on Linux could have been affected as well. (It's not really clear if it exploited a flaw in JavaScript per se, or a flaw in the site... an XSS vulnerability of some sort.)

I ask because I received three of the worm messages before the worm was announced, and I looked at one of them. So I may have helped propagate it. :D

I have a five-gallon tank with an undergravel filter.  If it's relevant, it doesn't reside on a stand, it lives on... a kind of peninsula in between my kitchen and my living room and my hallway.  Does anyone have any fishtank tips, tricks, or other helpful hints/suggestions to make the next tank anything but an unmitigated disaster?

Here in New England, 78 degrees, gorgeous blue sky, wonderful billowy clouds and I walked to work listening to The Orb's "Little Fluffy Clouds" with a HUGE smile on my face.

For my history class I need to talk about the way other countries view the United States. For some reason my brain is not working today and can't put together words so I come to you guys to tell me your opinions. It would be awesome to hear from people that live in the US as well as people that don't live here. If it matters, this is for my history class.

So my question:
How do you think the US is viewed by other countries? Why?

Edit: If you don't live in the US... How do you and the general population of the country you live in view the US?

Thanks!

OK, so weird things happening at my work.

In Microsoft Word 2003, when you highlight text and hit "Backspace", nothing happens. If you highlight text and type something, it starts typing at the front of the selection. But, the "Del" key still works.

Anyone have an idea what could be happening? It only happens on one computer, and I've never observed this anywhere else.

::EDIT::

Nevermind, found it. For once in my life the Microsoft Knowledge Base actually helped me.

For those curious, in Options on the Edit tab, "Typing Replaces Selection" governs whether you can use backspace to delete highlighted text and the ability to type over highlighted text.

Why this was turned off, though... who knows.

Over the summer, I have to read Brave New World (Including Brave New World Revisited, Aldous Huxley) and Utopia (Sir Thomas More) for an English class next year.

Utopia was written first (and will probably be more annoying to read), and is about a... utopia. :P. But Brave New World is more recent and was written about a dystopia.

Which should I read first?

I can't seem to find it in any local stores, and I hate buying things like this sight unseen. Mainly, I'm concerned about dimensions- width and depth from top of watch face to wrist.

Hi folks,

I need some help with my Google-fu.

I'm trying to find either medical reference or research articles that show male libido drops after 18 years of age (ish) and that female libido peaks in the mid-30s.

Just to stress again these need to be medical reference or research articles, or perhaps articles written by those in the field e.g. medical doctors.

I'm not sure if there's a specific "help me with my Google-fu" community? :-)

I have a couple from PubMed already that are OKish:

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=Retrieve&db=pubmed&dopt=Abstract&list_uids=16444930&query_hl=4&itool=pubmed_docsum

Does anybody know how to soften up a stiff paisley bandanna? I have a light blue bandanna (resembles the 3rd pic in the above link) that used to be my mom's back in the 1970s, and it is nice and soft...It is so much easier to make it into a bandanna. But, I have a hot pink bandanna that I got a few years ago, and it is stiff...when I try to wear it on my head, I have to readjust the knot every 30-45 minutes, and it's really annoying. I just want to be able to wear it on my head more often! Help!

BTW, simply running my bandanna through the wash doesn't help -- it's still stiff.

So, say your boyfriend is in Holland on business and isn't coming back till next week (the morning of your birthday actually)

You want to send him something in an email to say you miss him without actually writing your own cheese.. A short quote or lyric. Not too too corny, but slightly cheesy is fine. (Screw it, cheesy/corny as hell is fine)

Nothing that says "Love" directly 'cause you're not there yet and you don't want to frighten the bejesus out of him quite yet..

What do you send in the email?

Okay... two very unrelated ones for ya... er... make that 3. (I always post three... I'm kind of obsessive about that :P)

1. So Virgil said something to the effect of "If I can't move Heaven, I'll raise Hell.". What is this from though? **apparently it's a translation of a line from Aeneid ...?? still unsure though***

2. I've heard that waitresses make *below* minimum wage, plus tips. True or False?

3. I graduate h.s. on Friday, but the last day of school is the following Monday. I really love my school and my teachers--as dorky as it may sound. But I don't want to sort of ruin the moments and the crying that I'm sure we'll have at graduation. Would coming in on Monday kill it?

Thanks dears ;)

What do you think is your best/favorite physical feature? Your worst/least favorite?
What is your best non-physical trait? Your worst?
If you could change one physical thing about yourself, what would it be? What non-physical trait of yours would you change if you had the chance?

What do you get the most compliments about?
What is the best compliment you have ever received?

What, in general, is the physical feature you notice on a person first? (Purely from a shallow standpoint)

If you had to pick only one word to describe yourself, what would that word be?
If you had to pick only one word to describe your ideal mate, what would that word be?

Finally, it's bragging time. What would you like to brag about? Tell me something good that's happened to you lately, or something you are really proud of.

Sleeping arrangement conundrum [Jun. 13th, 2006|10:17 pm]
The Question Club

thequestionclub

[emeraldetoile]
Presently, I have two friends staying over from college, a guy and a girl. The girl and I are extremely close, once roommates, the guy is incredibly close to the girl- but he and I get on each others nerves.

Soon we are going to set up in the tv room to watch a movie and relax, where there is a pull out bed from the couch. How do I handle sleeping arrangements? Do I sleep with my female friends in the tv room, and put the dude on the couch in the other room? Do I offer the dude my brother's old bedroom, and sleep downstairs with my friend? Or, do I see if they want to sleep in the same bed and I resign myself to my bedroom? Although I don't know how comfortable she'd be with that, especially with a boyfriend... I'm rather ornery and PMSy tonight and really want my space, but I don't want to be rude to my friends!
