Well, I was going to post this much earlier but then I was seized with a compulsion to defragment my hard drive and that took FIVE HOURS. I had hoped that it would stop making Compaq display "DRIVE FAILURE IS IMMINENT!" errors every time I rebooted (which, admittedly, isn't all that often) - it didn't - I still don't believe them. Luckily, this being a work computer, there really isn't anything on here that I'd get worked up about losing if the hard drive suddenly DID decide to just stop working. I guess we shouldn't have tipped it over while moving it into this office. Ah, hindsight...

Long story short (too late), my officemate Mikhail found a driver (windowsxp-drivers.com - don't bother registering, the user/pass combo for everybody is "driver/all") that allows the stone-age *Connectix* QuickCam VC that no longer works on Kim's old iMac (although there's probably a homemade driver for THAT, too, now that I think about it) to somehow miraculously feed a raw picture into the XP version of ImageStudio...although it appears you can't adjust/correct the colour or brightness, oh well (but maybe there's some other Logitech stuff that's been hacked up that'll - ah, screw it, it can wait until Sunday)

Man why aren't I home yet? OH YEAH I HAD TO POST THIS BYE

pieman (or maybe his wife, I dunno) just wrote me demanding equal time. (Note: this is not a competition) The only problem was the graphic that was sent to ME weighed in at a whopping *1001K* - GEEZ MAN. So I shrunk it to 38K for our poor dialup users who demand the rich, shiny graphical experience, yet only have the bandwidth budget for small numbered sizes.

Fortunately, I don't have a tie like that, so I don't have to take it out of my rotation. Or should I say..."unfortunately?"

My god that flamingo tie may very well haunt my dreams for weeks to come. Where on Earth can I find one like it?!

I miss my old Tobasco tie. That and my X-Men one that was signed by Stan Lee were awesome.

The Flamingos rock though.

Zed, for some reason I expect to hear the national anthem of some small "Somethingslovakia" type country every time I open that image.

As for you Pieman? It takes a special kind of courage to admit owning that...much less wearing it. Kudos.

It'd probably have to be a pretty fruity shirt to go with that pretty fruity tie :)

Great Combo - never could get away with that here in my office - and where can we get that tie ?

Jaguar - you can get yourself another tabasco tie at www.tabasco.com

See... maybe it's a good thing I haven't had any kids yet, so they can't buy me ties like that.

Wow!

It's looking like I'm down to my last week's worth of ties, so we'll probably go into reruns (aka "new to this office") by next Mondayish. The CW stands for COUNTESS WARA NEW YORK ...which makes me wonder if maybe this isn't a chick tie.
