Universal Extractor. One program to extract them all.

If you ever wanted to have a free software that would be able to handle all the different zip formats then you might want to take a look at the open source program called Universal Extractor. Universal Extractor can only be used to extract archives handling this task excellently. It supports a multitude of zip formats including the following popular ones: 7-zip archive, ace archive, arj, gzip, rar, tar and zip archives.

Next to that it can also unpack files from installation packages, it would be no problem for instance to unpack Windows Installer Package files (msi) or unpack the latest Firefox release with the Universal Extractor. It does not make that much sense to use a program like Winrar if you never pack files yourself, a tool that would extract all the archives would be more than enough.

Universal Extractor adds menu entries to the right-click men. You can choose to extract files, extract the archive in the same directory and extract the archive into a sub-directory.

Oil prices – Gas prices – Money

OilOil, no matter what the price, we use it. It is our means of going to work and back. It is our means of going to the strore, and our means of heating our homes. With crude prices (and gas prices) on the rise again, I feel the need to rant a little bit. The prices go up in the blink of an eye, and come back down a penny per day.

For example, since around sept. or oct., gas prices in my neck of the woods have been gradually coming down at a rate of a penny per day, maybe even one penny every two days. Very slow, but steady. Crude prices seemed to be dropping at a much faster rate. The lowering of prices seemed to stop at $2.19 per gallon of gas (in my area). Crude prices were still declining, but gas prices stopped….. doesn’t seem right to me. Then, in one day when the US announces that their crude supplies where lower than they thought, BAM! gas prices are back up to $2.39 per gallon. $2.39!! What the hell happened? Why did the price of gasoline jump up so quickly?

I always here news reporters say “Even though crude prices are coming down, it will be a while before you see any change at the pump”. True enough, it takes a long time for gas prices to fall back to where they should be when the price of crude is down. But man, crude takes a one day jump and IMMEDIATELY gas prices are up to match. Why is this? What happened to “it will be a while before we see a change at the pump”. Anyone have any answers / comments?

One more thing, for those of you that live outside the US and start yapping about how we have the cheapest gasoline in the world, let me remind you of something. A lot of countries now have national public healthcare…the reason your gas prices are so high is because of the large tax burden on it to fund your health care plans. Here in the US we have no such plan. Our health insurance prices are through the roof also. So, you may have a to pay a little more for gasoline to drive you to the emergency room when you have a heart attack and need surgery, but once you are there, your hospital costs will be very small (if anything at all). In the US, as soon as you walk in the hospital, the bill starts climbing….and it is hard to tell how much money you are going to owe by the time you get out of there.

Just a quick for instance, my wife had to have her gall bladder removed about 2 years ago. It was outpatient surgery. We went in at 8am, and were back home by 6pm that evening. That surgery racked up an enormous bill over $8,000. Thank goodness that surgery had no complications, or the bill would have been even worse!

So think next time you are saying that anyone here in the US should be thankful for our low gas prices, just remember that the next time you have a cold, your treatment is “free”…..but that is a rant for another day.

Maryland lawmaker wants to ban fake bull testicles on cars / trucks.

Bull NutsFake bull testicles and other anatomically explicit vehicle decorations would be banned from Maryland roads under a bill pending in the state legislature.

The measure was filed in the General Assembly Monday by Delegate LeRoy E. Myers Jr., R-Washingon, who says children shouldn’t be exposed to giant plastic gonads dangling from pickup truck trailer hitches. The bill also would ban depictions of naked human breasts, buttocks or genitals, with offenses punishable by fines of up to $500.

“It’s time to take a stand,” Myers told The (Hagerstown) Herald-Mail.

Weirdest Slot Machines Ever Created

Weirdest Slot Machines Ever Created


Looking for some weird punting fun? This piece takes a look at some of the weirdest slot machines ever created.   Some of these are very bizarre!

Monty Python’s Spamalot

In the early days of this slot, many Monty Python fans were angry that the team has sold out their name to a gambling product. However, it was quickly established that the team had nothing to do with it. Some say the Spamalot crew pays Monty Python for using the Grail script but that’s just about it. No one is sure.  The slot has all the basics you’d expect from Spamalot with animations, bizarre flying cows and a knights cameo.

Cash n Curry

If you have ever wanted to play a curry themed slot machine, this is the opportunity you have been waiting for. It was designed by Microgaming but is now featured on most online casinos like the ones here Cash and Curry is basically about lining up pappadums, limes and chillies on the reels.  There is a bonus game where you have to line up a combo of chicken baltis. With three baltis in a row, you have won!

Obama Slots

Not surprised are you? He is the leader of the free world and is thus very popular. What is better than enjoying some gambling fun in the company of the President of the United States?  It’s not just Obama on the reel though. You will find some of the most famous bygone presidents such as Lincoln, Kennedy and Washington. Line up three of them and you get a payout. Line up three Obamas and you get an even bigger payout.

40 Shades of Santa

It is very bizarre for anyone to associate Santa with something erotic. Tell that to the lads at Paddy Power who came up with this weird slot machine. If you didn’t know already, it is a combination of 50 Shades of Grey and Santa Claus.  The images on the reels of this slot include masks, handcuffs, lips, a sexy misses Claus, etc.

Judge Judy

You probably know the no nonsense judge from TV. She is popular so it was only a matter of time before she got her own slot machine theme.  The images on the reel include law books, an American flag, a gavel, random court pictures etc.  Depending on how well you play, you can get into the bonus round known as ‘You make the call’.  Here, you will be shown famous clips from Judge Judy’s shows and you will be given the chance to guess the outcome and earn bonus multipliers.  If you get sucked into this part of the game, you could literally go hours on it!

Which of these are you playing first?
