"If you use windows then you know that after your computer has been on for a while, it will start running slow. When this happens, most people will restart to clear out any idle processes running in the background taking up memory. But why should you have to restart when you can clear out these processes with just a click of a mouse. I would like to show you how you can create a shortcut on your desktop and use it to clear out your memory so you don’t have to restart."

ME was a bad OS, and Vista is ME II. Vista looks good. Nice features. Problem is I'm a software developer. I know how to use, crash and fix a computer. DO NOT NEED MY OS TO PROTECT IT SELF FROM ME!
Every time I wanna install a app, admin username and password. Every time I wanna change network settings, or any settings for that matter, freaking addmin username and password please. F That!!!! And to do certain things now takes much longer than before! Lot more clicks, lot more typing.
And it is not that fast!!!!! Copying is a pain. First calculating how long it will take to copy! Y? Copy the shit and get it over and done with!
And my God! It's damn expensive...
And then this article...
Vista is to expensive for what you get, get Ubuntu, its free.
Dimmu Borgir! What can you say about this brilliant Black/Death Metal band. Release after release! Never a crappy album. My fav for a long time was Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia. And then came In Sorte Diaboli.
Its is a concept album (From Wiki)...
"In Sorte Diaboli is the band's first concept album, with a story located in medieval Europe. It is about a priest who begins to doubt his faith, and then ends up taking the place of the Antichrist. "There's this dude that works as a priest's assistant, and after a while he just discovers that he has nothing to do with Christianity," Silenoz says. "He just sort of has this awakening and realizes that he has different abilities and different powers and is leaning more to the dark side." The conclusion of the story in the booklet implies that the story of In Sorte Diaboli is not yet finished, possibly hinting that Dimmu Borgir's next studio album will continue this concept."
I bought this album off www.gomusic.ru. But will have to get the original. A must have for my collection.
"And while there have been some attempts to dissuade thieves from stealing our things, most have been pretty easy to get around. But what if a thief knew that if he (or she) stole that iPod, it would only have one charge cycle left before it became useless?
A recently-published patent filed by Apple (and dug up by the New Scientist) could provide one such deterrent. The patent, titled "Protecting electronic devices from extended unauthorized use," outlines a technique that would allow a particular device to authenticate itself with certain, user-approved power supplies and devices so that it can only be charged by those devices. In a lot of ways, it's a lot like DRM, but for electronic devices."
"Yes, my friends ps3 broke.
He came round mine explaining that his PS3 just died for no reason.
I asked him if he used any buggerd games, dvds, or blu-ray. He said no. I asked him if he dropped it etc. No, no no.
So I went round his to have a look. He had put black duct tape over the air vents. All of them.
I said 'why have you put duct tape over the vents?'
He replys with this:
'I am really cautious about my ps3. I really look after it. I don't want dust getting inside it so I covered up the holes to stop dust from getting in.'
I was in tears.
My friend has got a phone call from some Sony branch. Apparently he will be getting a new PS3. They explained that the system had overheated (Duh?) and that he should take care of where he puts his ps3. They suggested a well ventilated area LMAO! Anyway, they said the system should have shut down automatically but it didn't. And the reason they are giving him a new one is because they don't have any refurbished systems in there branch LMAO!! Guess they havent experienced a broken PS3 b4 lol.
Wow, as so many people are reading this. you should check out www.youtube.com/lduk"
Well actually it's only a promotional copy. Every once in a while Jon Shaffer comes on and says "Hallo this is John Shaffer from Iced Earth. We hope you enjoying your promotional copy of our new cd Framming Armageddon" and then something else too (I think he got very tiered of saying that all the time). It is very irretating and very intrusive. But I guess it did it's job. I want this album. Badly!!!!!!
I think its good! Very good! Very different.
I WANT! I WANT! I WANT!

YES YES YES YES YES!!!!!!!
It's been over 5 years since hearing plans by John Shaffer to do this album. And now it is almost here!
Iced Earth's continuation of the Something Wicked... trilogy will be released on the following dates 7,10,11 of Sept respectively, depending where you live. We who use www.gomusic.ru will probably have it with in the next 3 weeks. Hopefully!
Here is the cover art... (looks cool)
The single from the album, OVERTURE OF THE WICKED is just brilliant. I love the new song, Ten Thousand Strong, it is one of my favourites. And the re-recording of the trilogy is just brilliant.
Something Wicked This Way Comes is one of the best metal albums ever. Lets hope this album is right up there with it.
An Interview with John Shaffer

Richard Kuklinski (April 11, 1935 – March 5, 2006) was a convicted murderer who was a notorious hit man known as "The Iceman" who was connected to the Gambino crime family.
Kuklinski's association with the Gambino crime family came through his relationsip with the mobster Roy DeMeo. Kuklinski stated that he started out doing robberies and other assignments for the family, but soon his talent for killing was realized and he stood out amongst his associates, standing over 6 ft 4 in (193 cm) without shoes and weighing close to 300 lb (135 kg).
Over the next thirty years, according to Kuklinski, he killed regularly. The exact number has never been settled upon by authorities, and Kuklinski himself at various times claimed to have killed between 33 and 200 individuals.
