        \_ This sounds like something a bunch of losers would do.
           \_ Yea, almost as bad as pointing pointless, contentless,
              worthless flames on the motd. But not quite. That's reserved
              for the _true_ loser...
              \_ Wow, that's like so, recursive.
        \_ Okay, I'll bite.  What's a King Cake party?

2002/1/29 [Computer/SW/Apps/Media, Consumer/Audio] UID:23704 Activity:high
1/28    I have a bunch of .avi files which quicktime won't open and windows
        media player just plays the audio track without any video, (though i
        these files are clearly meant to be video).  Is there anything i can
        do to play them or are they just bad files.
        \_ Perhaps they're DivX files?
        \_ this is asked all the time.  check the motd archive.  you don't have
           the right video codec.
        \_ This may sound stupid, but eFax viewer (the new one) reads .avi
           files as well. to download.
           \_ You'll still need a decompressor.  If you don't have the right
              codec, you're still screwed.

        \_ this is asked all the time.  check the motd archive.
        \_ (custom-set-variables (tab-width x))

1/29    Anyone watched the Howard Stern Show on E! last Thursday or Friday?
        What's the name of that chick in green bikini handling the Jeopardy
        question board?  I want to search for her pics.  Thanks a bunch.
        \_ chic is a measure of trendiness. a chick is a chicken or a slang
           term for a chic female. 'chic' is not pronounced like 'chick'.
           thank you. -chialea
           \_ join me in my mission to objectify women even further!
           \_ Oops, I mixed up the two.  Thanks for the clarification.

                \_ not if it wants some little wolfies.

1/29    Conservatives are at it again! Now they are trying to stop
        the nuggets ad for "promoting bestiality"!
        \_ "as UPC, other animal advocacy groups, and many California and
           non-California residents have requested."  Yeah all those vicious
           conspiracy prone animal advocacy right winger nut jobs who think
           the commercial is about gang raping chickens.  Next time I'll have
           to show solidarity with our poultry friends by voting democrat so
           they'll know I stand by them.  Poultry rape is no laughing matter!
           And oh my god... here's their website:
           Someone please tell me this is a joke.
           \_ wouldn't this group be considered liberal?
