Amusing Winamp Error

Anonymous Sports Betting

My coworker beckons me to his office. “Another computer problem”, I thought. “Another  waste of my time”.

I’m not the IT guy, and I don’t get paid to do IT, but everyone wants me to fix their computer / printers / copier problems. Why? Because I’m damn good at it. And a helluva lot better (and faster) at it than the guy that is getting paid to do IT.

“Winamp quit working, and all I get is this error. I can’t work without music! Please save me Mr. computer guy!”

Me, being the intelligent / compassionate guy that I am, proceeded to fix whatever it was that he broke. I literally lol’d at the error message on his screen. I took a quick snapshot of it so I could share it.

The Winamp coders have a sense of humor. Who woulda thunk it?

“This should never really happen”. Guess what chump, it did. 🙂

You Call That A Stroller?

What’s the deal with baby strollers these days? My wife was in the dressing room of a store this past weekend when I was nearly run down and maimed while waiting for her in the next aisle. It was a baby stroller, but there was no baby in it. This lady had the damn thing packed to the top with shopping bags and watching her maneuver it through the tight aisles in the overcrowded store was pretty funny until she came my way.

Like I said, it was packed like the Grinch’s sleigh without a baby anywhere in sight. Yet, when I didn’t yield the entire aisle to her, she gave me one of those Armed Parent Militia coldcock stares that said, “Can’t you see I’m a fucking parent with a fucking BABY STROLLER??!!?? Move it, lardass!” She made me feel as if I needed to hire a real estate agent so I could buy myself some floor space. I noticed that other customers moved very quickly out of her way when they glimpsed the baby stroller, so I think I smell a rat.

Again, no baby (unless she’d just bought it).

Is this common where you live? Baby stroller shopping with no baby? I’ve actually seen a couple of stores place a sign out front that said, “No baby strollers, please.”

I am a proud parent myself, and I have to say that people like this tend to ruin things for those of us that actually use baby strollers to stroll our babies. On second thought, maybe she left her kid in the dressing room or something. Come to think of it, it was probably sleeping quietly under the 37 pounds of goods she was toting around.

How To Fix The “Do You Want To Move Or Copy Files From This Zone?” Nag In Windows XP

Ever since installing SP3 on my Windows XP box, I am greeted with the “Do You Want To Move Or Copy Files From This Zone?” nag everytime I try to move a file to a different location on my network. After searching all around, I have finally found a fix.

I will share it here with you all in case you also run into this problem.

Open Control Panel -> Internet Options.
Open Security-tab; mark the zone “Local intranet”, press the “Sites” button,
UN-tick “Automatically detect intranet network”,THEN
tick “Include all local (intranet) sites not listed in other zones” and
tick “Include all network paths (UNCs)”.

That’s it! Problem solved!
