Re: There's no racist like a liberal racist

I emailed the coward and asked him why hasn't answered the questions of yours truly fellow infidel.

Should I start checking for bombs under my car now or what?

Costco isn't offering any plasmas this year. As their employees tell, they only sells products that actually sell.

Re: Maybe I made a bad job decision

I agree with the interview part. If you don't have a history of job hopping for a few more bucks you can even quit after a brief stay. Your scenario is not so common anymore, many IT shops I've seen want too much work, too many hours, and heaps of responsibility for what they pay. In a laid back atm...

Re: Panasonic stopping all Plasma TV production

Mentally they gave up on plasmas long ago. When they tried to make them more green (lower power consumption) their defaults settings made for a dim picture. I can't spot the plasmas at BB right away, really dim in comparison. If the sales people had any brains they would have put them in Cinema Mode...

No surprises. Excessive shaky camera left much to be desired. Almost no humor. You wonder why I say th...

Re: New Solar PV Array in Maynard, MA!

As I understand it, the more inverters there are, the less sensitivity there is to shadows; instead of losing a large group, you only lose one/a few panels. The other advantage of lots of inverters is the quantity of the DC cabling is minimized. All the long runs of wires are AC which greatly reduc...

Re: Nasty program called xVidly, how do I get rid of it?

First and foremost, don't go to any website that offers "free" TV shows to stream. You'll be forced into options you don't want, and odds are the episodes you want won't be free.

Nasty program called xVidly, how do I get rid of it?

It will not uninstall. I choose it, click uninstall, and nothing happens.

I also have something called QuickShare, and it won't uninstall either.

Any help is appreciated.

I tried CCleaner's uninstall, that didn't work either. Yes, really.
