I will be heading out to St. Louis in a couple of weeks with my grandpa, and my old man. We will be attending a reunion of the 8th Air Force 491'st Bomber Group. Any body ever been to Saint Louie? Is there anything out there that I should check out?

They also have a Marc Chagal exhibit at the San Fran Museum of Modern Art. Last time I went the admin was a bit pricey but the museum was nice.

I think you are refering to Something Awful. Yes, I drop by SA and Fark now and then. About today's awful link:
The site we are going to take a look at today is a German furry music site called "Jumpy's Music". Furries playing musical instruments is just one of many bad ideas that the internet spawns daily.
After seeing 'Lost in Translation' stick around the theater for next showing of American Splendor. Even though I was clearly under the influence of free popcorn I can honestly say that I really enjoyed the movie. I recommend it highly, especially to those who have vast creative potential, energy, resources and tools, and who spend a long part of their day bored at a desk in a hospital...

Funny, not ten minutes after i read adolph's post my boss comes into my office and tells me that they no longer need the files that were 'lost' on the mac; they had been found on a cd.
the old mac was promptly removed from my office and sent to the warehouse to die a lonely death. Thanks for the offer adolph. As for donating the imac:
can't do that....the blue mac is my sister's imac (yes, i have to go and pick it up) and the pink mac is on its way to the valley this thanksgiving when we visit fidel. Captain Pinky winky is being re-assigned to what might as well be the Antartic.

As I understand it, It happens to every man at some point in their life.
So yes to connect a current monitor to a old mac you will need an adapter of you will need an old mac monitor.
I have no idea where you could get one....maybe a mac wherehouse or maybe even at Microcenter there in Houston.

I've been getting up to speed with css for the 2004 BP MS 150 site and have started to discover how challenging browser quirks are. At first, I thought totally using em as a measurement was the way to go. When you look at the Em Measurements page in Safari, everything scales up and down when the user increases or descreases the overall font size. An em is a unit of measure based on the size of a font and changes based on the size of the font. This is really nice. However, Internet Explorer does behave the same way. Instead of resizing the position of any block defined by an em measurement, it keeps the blocks in the same place and stuff gets yucky. Today I'll be checking them out in Windows browsers. Below are a few experiments:
What you also see are feathers -- seemingly hurled to the ground, like darts, the way they poke out of the ground.

The tradition of the quinceanera comes from ancient Mexican society. The origin of the quinceanera can be traced back to the Aztecs about 500 B.C.
Purpose: Fifteen was the age at which boys became warriors and girls were also presented to the community because they were looked upon as the vital force of the tribe and its future since they had the power to become mothers and to give future warriors to the tribe. The fifteen-year old Aztec girl was exhorted and instructed by the King in the duties of womanhood, and the funeral honors for an Aztec woman who died in childbirth were the some as those for a warrior who fell in battle.
In Mexican society, the quinceanera evolved into a rite of social initiation intended to teach and to reinforce important cultural values.
In modern times a quinceanera is celebrated to acknowledge a young maiden's passage into womanhood. The ceremony is a reaffirmation of the baptismal vows made by her parents.

The words 'officizing' were chopped off and the right side was also chopped. Weird. Any ideas....?
is there anyway to save an swf to an avi?
prolly, the first thing you are thinking is, "why would you want to do that anyway?" The reason is, cause my boss asked me to. (I'm pretty sure the final destination is powerpoint -- it's ALL ABOUT POWERPOINT here at MDACC.) I pulled down adolph's 'officizing' swf from chairjockey, and tried to open it in various apps that i have. None would open it, save internet explorer (which, of course, has the plug-in to play swf), but couldn't save it/export as a different file.
Is there anyway to do it without having flash software? also: does flash have the ability to save as mov/avi?
Luckily, Barbara and Stephanie were there to rip the thing apart, dumping a load of candy and toys on the grass below. The kids scrambled and came away with gift bags BULGING. Carol was happy.
