Geeky Nightmare

I had a really vivid dream last night – just before I woke up. I dreamt I pressed a secret keyboard combination (yes, I can remember what it was – the ‘Windows Key’ and ‘;’) which reformatted the PC automatically and then booted up to a ghostly Windows 95 screen in pink. I think it’s my subconscious telling me to back up!

A four day weekend awaits me now. Tomorrow involves picking new lights and carpets for my room. It’s getting redecorated – finally! – about time too cause the wallpaper is literally peeling off. How squalid. Anyway, I’m also going to see The Kumars at Number 42 being recorded tomorrow. And also try out that whole ‘revision thing’ everybody is talking about nowadays. More fun than Kaballah apparently?

    what they must do is "LET MY PEOPLE GO" on study leave!!!!!!!

    Oooh, weird, I’m now curious and yet REALLY scared to enter that key combination!

    Once more with feeling (and gravatar):

    You wouldn’t get that kinda bollocks on Mac.

  4. Red Dalek says:

    I *knew* you would say some alone those lines!

  5. Ragnarok_Warrior says:

    Mac is sucky it does not support a good MSN Messenger

  6. Alex Newman says:

    Why use MSN?

  7. Red Dalek says:

    Everybody I know here uses MSN really – best UI and features with Messenger Plus! – plus it unsurprisingly integrates very nicely with Windows.

    I know that in other places AIM is more popular – what do you use?

  8. Alex Newman says:

    AIM, but I use Trillian
    The real version of AIM is horrible, but Trillian ads all the good features.

    The East Coast of the U.S. is mostly AIM

  9. Pingu says:

    I love my ‘sucky’ Mac then. Sure, MSN for Windows has more gimmicks, but Adium ( is fantastic as a messenger – supports display pics and such, but also allows you to customise the message view, contact list, what and how it alerts you to stuff, it’s scriptable (open source , and it rocks. Plus it connects to every IM network under the sun.
    MSN 7 and msgplus might be cool, but I’ve recreated most *useful* Plus! features with a few Applescripts. The winks, nudges and sound novelty wears off pretty damn fast.

  10. Ragnarok_Warrior says:

    No it really doesnt

  11. Nic Parkes (Dom-s Editor...praise me) says:

    It really does.

  12. alex trafford says:

    It does, I end up using messenger 6 or webmessenger to avoid a shaky screen and crapy animations.

  13. Red Dalek says:

    Well, I just turn them off

    But I couldn’t use Messenger 7 without ‘A-Patch’ to take away all the adverts anyway.

  14. Alex Newman says:

    Thats why I use Trillian. AIM’s default layout has ads, and is just plain annoying.

  15. Ragnarok_Warrior says:


    Where am i again?

    And Alex you said you liked the nudges and the winks of MSn 7.0

  16. alex trafford says:

    The ads all over the main screen.

    Nudges and winks grow old FAST.
