My computer has just asked me what this "spare time" means. I've told it your just having a laugh...its now found a link on maximum working hours per week and is getting proper flag as a screen-saver and changed its name from Lap01 to che guevara.. thanks for nothin..

What if he don't wanna be found? I'll bet he has a way to control your mind through these signals, this would explain how a guy like Bill Gates can take over the world (ok, it just seems like it). I think it's time to make one of those smart tin foil hats.

Thanks for the link graham very interesting but my computer works it's spare time helping cure Cancer from click here but you can also opt to help find a cure from Smallpox & the like.

Nice one spikeychris, had me chuckling for a while.

you've been watching too much "Signs"!

Although the tin foil hats WERE pretty groovy!


  vinnyT 15:47 14 Apr 2003

Nah! didn't watch it, Ben, get all my info from reliable source (bloke with shopping trolley fill with tin cans).

As a ps to my earlier post, shopping trolly bloke tells me it's best to make your hat from used tin foil (turkey is best), something to do with the grease making the signals skid off easier.

Vinny, giblet's, don't forget to shove them in your ears (blocks the ultra low frequency's) old bloke always forgets those. Thats why you hear him talking to himself as he walks with his trolley (he's trying to talk over the orders he's receiving)

So your computer can search for ET and cure all troubles of mankind. It still can't make a square look like a tick though. :¬)

  spikeychris 17:14 14 Apr 2003

Ouch, there's nothing worse than calling a mans tick.

  graham 17:59 14 Apr 2003

It's not a tick now, I changed it to a square, well a rectangle really, so we all see the same thing. :-)

I already showed him how to make a tick √ .....
