Blue I have done the very thing you are talking about. I still had an old SB AWE 32 laying around and a Monster 3D card. I did manage to find drivers for them but remembering how to get DOS loaded up high and all that jazz was tough. I put it all in a Abit board with a P3 750. I have a hard drive with DOS 6.22 and one with Win98 on it and just swap them out when I want to play different things. I love playing GLdoom! It looks so good with the 3Dfx card. It just don't look that good on my main machine. I even broke out my old Colorado tape drive and restored a bunch of old games. My wife had a fit to play Lemmings!

I don't have trouble believing the possibility that Bin Laden may have been killed in '01, nor do I have trouble entertaining the possibility that he's not really dead at all and this is a bunch of crap. But I also don't have trouble believing the possibility that things happened exactly the way the news reported them. I've become so naturally skeptical of absolutely everything that the most I can do concerning anything I can't verify with my own eyes is believe that it's possibly true. I can't ever bring myself to believe wholeheartedly anything anymore without personal verification. I don't know if I became this way on my own or the world made me this way, but either way I find it kind of sad.

IF Bin Laden is actually dead, and if this was still '01, I'd be cheering. But now this doesn't really register as any more than an interesting footnote; it's not like anything is really going to change anyway. I'm much older (in ways far more than the actual 10 years have physically aged me) and far more jaded and cynical now.

Damn you just described me to a T. I hate I am like that these days.

I really hope they release the pics of that dead SOB. I want to see his ass dead. I also wonder how much, if any, intelligence they recovered.

I still can not get over the period of time we all live in these days. I have tried to teach my kids that we live in a time of instant answers. Don't know something, google it and bingo, instant answer.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I wound up using the Ultimate Boot CD and that seemed to clean it up. But the system kept acting screwy so he got a clean Win7 install.

Thanks again.

Hey what do you guys use to clean a PC that has something really nasty on it? I usually use Malwarebytes and Spybot but whatever is on this thing is just plain nasty and won't go away. My next step is to wipe it clean but would try something else as a last gasp.

Until last year I had always liked the Pro Bowl. I think they have really screwed the pooch by moving it to the week before.

Woops. That's ok, you just keep starting at the woodwork and I'm sure the enemies will all come out of any day now, haha!

Na, I am not the paranoid type. I just thought it ironic you guys were having that conversation and the first headline I see when checking the news was that.

Reply about "Coffee spill causes diversion for US flight."

Why the f*** are Americans always sending their planes to Canada when they have a possible terrorist on board and why does our American-loving Conservative government always allow it?

They did the same thing on 9/11 when the planes landed in Canada on the east coast.

The foreign policy mess is your doing...you clean up the mess.

Agreed. And stop being so goddamned overly paranoid. The news stories we continually read about someone spots an unattened bag somewhere and people start running around like chickens with their heads cut off, SWAT teams and bomb squads are called in and it turns out to be someone's sack lunch or some shit. America is the only country - with the exception of North Korea maybe - that sees enemies everywhere all the time when they don't exist.

In a twist reminiscent of the plot of the 1964 Glenn Ford movie 'Fate Is the Hunter', the coffee spill caused distress signals to go out, including code 7500, which means hijacking or unlawful interference.

Crazy, that was just on TCM 2 nights ago. Great flick!

Umm...you were saying...http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/us_packages_explode_maryland

It was a somber half time show for sure with that and the tribute to Don Meredith. Back in the day I was always looking forward to Monday nights no matter who was playing.

RIP Don.
