Out of the Blue

Call me Nurse Blue (no, on the other hand, please don't) as Hudson the wonder dog is playing wonder patient today. She had a trip to the vet last week for a lump on her side, which seemed quite serious, but turned out to be a cyst. Then over the weekend, she developed a sore on her face and a runny eye, which seemed fairly trivial, but turned out to be a "hot-spot" and conjunctivitis, resulting in an injection, some ointment for the hot-spot, pills for the underlying infection causing the hot-spot, and eye drops. The vet bill for the runny eye and sore? Almost exactly double the tab for aspirating the cyst.

That Toronto goal was dirty. If the fans weren't chanting asshole at the referees it would have been an interference call and no goal.

Anyways, it looks like the Leafs will be golfing tomorrow after this 2nd period action.

When Leafs win, add "Pete rules and Flyers suck" to your signature for the end of the playoffs

If Flyers win, ill add "Dantasitc rules and Leafs suck" to my sig for the end of the playoffs

you have till the end of the first period to agree to this bet.

To everybody else, sorry for hijacking thread.

What an appalling pun. Marvellous.

I'm biased but I think you'll find that modern data processing owes absolutely everything to his and Chris Dates work. Bluesnews wouldn't work as is for a start

Your dogs seem to get sick rather frequently, Blue. My dog is almost never sick, although she does have a bad back. My previous never really got sick either but she injured herself with amazing frequency.


you think this is sad.... My cat is on valium....

8. spam spam and more spam Apr 22, 2003, 11:53 tempus
 
I can't belive that stupid spam chick said i should get a life. She aparently doesn't work from home, have 5 different e-mail accounts and get close to 100+ e-mails a week. Most of them are for mortgages, loans, cedit help, enlarging my penis... you know the drill. I have managed to get two different spammers kicked off of my ISP one being shagmail, and i can't remember the other one. My wife gets explicit sex e-mails as does my mother. I don't. Kinda pissed about that one actually.

I wouldn't have a problem with spam, one if they sent me a message first asking if i want to recieve their spam, and 2ndly they didn't hide behind an e-mail adress but actually said my name is bob and i send spam!

Man we always make the news in a big way. You got the guy biting the dog and the other idiot who made a dungeon in his house and had sex slaves in there, one for 6 months, one for 2 years. Heres the kicker... hes 67 years old. Good thing were the NCAA champs this year or it would be all bad.

6. Vertical Keyboard Apr 22, 2003, 10:25 The Pyro
 
Is it just me or does that vertical keyboard seem like a horrible design?

I use the arrow keys VERY frequently when typing. Mostly I use them for navigation in source files when programming. I can't imagine having the arrow keys positioned in the absolute most uncomfortable place (the very center of the keyboard), and having to move by hand around an obnoxious vertical barrier every time I want to use them.

Interesting idea, but it definitely needs another round or two of refinement before I would even consider trying it.
