    I had to replace a toilet. If you look in the tank of a toilet the fill valve assembly connected to the water supply is known as a ballcock.

    word for the day:

    I thought that was funny.

    Not that much, actually. It's 14.5 oz in stock form. Has a huge-ass grip (6 inches or so) and a bit of lead to compensate the balance.

    But yeah, it's one demanding MOFO :)

    all this while i thought Dedan was an american politician who had a penthouse and the name was a joke on that.

    and now i understand how some people have mile long sigs, but i am only allowed 2 lines. i thought with a higher post count i will be able to add more crap :) to my posts.

    so Dedan's Penthouse threatened to do a nobadmojo on us! How interesting :)

    A VCR tape (yes, they are still in existence) will only tape on the first frame once. You can never retape on that frame. Mindblowing, eh?

    i just got an ancient VCR fixed, so i could record tennis matches.

    Did not get a DVD recorder cos DVD's become unplayable so quicky, totally unpredictable! but i might think of a DVD recorder next year.

    Google "dedans penthouse" and you'll see a number of 'spiders' that explain the name, that is, the "non-TW" links, for example:
    http://forth.stir.ac.uk/~pmbc1/dalrymple.htm (scroll down and read the short text)
    http://www.sc.edu/library/spcoll/hist/tennis/art.html (scroll down to 3rd item: "Tennis in Eighteenth-Century France, II" and read the short text here as well.

    the 'dedans penthouse' moniker is an obtuse reference to a 'tennis observer' though most of my posts are not observations but hallucinations :)

    Sure it does. It just has to be done at the source and not at the router. There are also differences in the way the field information for fragmentation is placed in the header between IPv4 and IPv6.

    Scattered thunderstorms are passing through the nation's capital at present. Combined with occasional gusting winds, they create difficult and dangerous conditions for those navigating.

    Sharon Stone is working on producing "Basic Instinct 3" and if it is as much better than "Basic Instinct 2" as "Basic Instinct 2" was relative to "Basic Instinct", then it's going to be the very bestest movie ever ever EVAH.

    ananda just said the nicest thing anybody ever said to SoBad on these forums...
    then again, there haven't been too many people saying nice things to SoBad on these forums...;)

    P.S. Looks like SoBad kinda likes this third-person style actually.
