AT&T- You don't really need to make that call, do you?
DFW Airport- Because we put a shopping mall in your airport.
SFA Airport- Sorry, we don't sell water here.
Chedders- Ignore that smell, it is just the month old grease we cooked your fries in.
Olive Garden- Because you don't want to spend much money and have no clue what Italian food really is.
Apple- Do less for more money.
Ford- We sold that 'new' model in Europe 3 years ago.
Land Rover- Traversing the world, one mechanic at a time.
Prius- Everyone is laughing at you anyway.
Harley Davidson- Why put $15 grand in the bank, let it collect dust in your garage instead.
Barack Obama- Free Pie (many restrictions apply, pie isn't actually free, complaints will be forwarded to the IRS, multiple complaints and you will be droned)

LOL~    Having an experience with having tried to UNINSTALL McAfee....and it's a bitch.


I was trying to install java and it seems one of the prompts...to which I clicked "OK".....was to install and/or change my default browswer.


LESSON LEARNED....don't take anything for granted when installing programs.

I had installed java because my YouTube videos stopped buffering and somebody told me to install java.     Go figure.

Someone told you to install Java for Youtube? That someone is a moron. Youtube uses Flash or HTML5, but never Java, which (let's be frank) is a dying format and some modern browsers  and operating systems (ahem, Android) don't support by default anymore. (It's a shame, really. I learned Java in college, and although it's not exactly easy as BASIC (which I learned in high school) it's not too bad for programmers. Far better than the Fortran they try to tell meteorologists to take... it's really fast-- which helps with the mass calculations forecast models use-- but for programmers, it is so clunky!  Wow, I am digressing...)

No.   LOL!

My YouTube videos stopped buffering completely.  None of them would play fluidly.

I googled the problem and in the first few things about it....somebody yelled, "java"! 

Now I recall purposely removing java long ago based upon sound advice from one of our resident geniuses.  Had no problem with videos before or after.

But I installed something and now I have toolbars up the whazzoo that I can't get rid of!  LOL!        :shrug:

Don't you use FORTRAN anymore?  What about Pascal?  Hee-hee!  I learned both of those in high school as well.  I taught myself BASIC on the Atari 800 we had.
