Red is just a horrible color all around when it comes to printing (Red and the shades of are the hardest to hit in CMYK)

But any way....

Back on subject. I went to the bar with this girl last Tuesday and we did a little talking and stuff. I left early, I had to work early in the morning.

But tomorow (Saturday 20060603) is the first official date. So we will see how that goes.

I like it that way. Seriously.


And if you really really really think it's an eyesore you can join the fan club and dragonman has a nice little script you can use.

Good grief...I turned it off, and is uilleann ever right...that is quite an eyesore. Glad I don't have to see it. [Wink]

I don't believe uilleann has had any success with Greasemonkey with his configuration of Firefox...otherwise I'd help him out, gratis.

No, I can remove individual images with AdBlock if they're that annoying (the worst is people's refusal to pick something unique, argh, but the avatars are so shit I refuse to use one at all). I don't have an allergic reaction to badly-encoded JPEGs so I never could be bothered to block it, though, but I wish people would learn how to save images properly.

uilleann your not alone on this battle. I sometimes in my computer science class get the odd remark of someone saying "You can save pictures as a JPEG" or the time when someone adds .jpeg or whatever extension to the end of the file name instead of choosing it from the drop down list.

It gets annoying when you are looking through pages of programming for the source of the error or trying every possible thing to fix someones animation and the problem turns out to be that someone dosn't know how to save images properly.

Either I'm old or some things don't cross the country-culture barrier.

WTF is a 3 day rule?

Your supposed to wait 3 days after meeting a girl to call her. If you call earilier then that you look desprate and if you wait longer then that you look like your not intrested.

Agreed. If I don't respond to something when I'm thinking of it, forget about it. If I try to play games like that, postponing the message, I just don't do it. Screw it, I'll look desperate for e-mail or whatnot...it's probably true, anyway. [Wink] [Razz]

But that would just scare the girl off. But at the same time they want to be chased.

Can we get a girls oppinion on this?

Yes.

Call her the next day if you're interested.

Putting it off to make it look like you don't like her as much as she presumably likes you is stupid, and, speaking as a chick, I'd lose interest and go back out on the prowl if I didn't hear from you within two days, tops.

Oh ffs. What a load of immature drivel. Imagine some completely arbitary number of days to wait so you don't look "desperate". Oh hang on, it exists and I don't have to imagine it? What a load of big, steaming donkey balls!

<RANT>

Make up your own mind. If you did enjoy yourself then give her a ring back the day after and let her know. If she thinks that you are desperate then you probably don't want a relationship with that person anyway. And give the girl a little credit. If she thinks you are desperate then it doesn't matter when you ring back, the answer is going to be no (unless she is looking for that).

So please, I implore all you youngsters who are looking for love, MAKE UP YOUR OWN MINDS! Don't become mired in social mediocrity! After all, the person who is going to love you is going to love you BECAUSE of how you stray from the social standard.

Normal is the mean, not the mode nor the median. In a way I'm trying to say that there is no middle value, only an average that we deviate from.

So please, be yourself and if relationships don't work out then you can say that you were not right together. Do not blame yourself or your partner. If you are yourself then you have nothing to be ashamed of.

</RANT>

Perhaps this should have gone into rants and raves but maybe something of what I've typed will go in.

My apologies but somethings should never be given credence!
