    Now i could answer that question really easily, but then i would get banned for answering that question, so thus there is no chance that i will take the liberty of answering such mentioned question, but i'm sure that you could maybe work it out without even trying

    Because you sold it.
    Therefore... you did!
    Quitmzilla is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.

    Why did this place die? Who killed it?
    Too many chiefs not enough indians..
    Biggest mouth has the floor..
    No clear direction, vauge purpose, no leadership..
    a Ship with out a rudder.
    too many sites with a similar scope of purpose..that dont have the above issues

    There are a few things that are immediate in my mind.

    Have you worked where you are given the synopsis of a report on a areas problems then expected to deal with it fully ..with out having the full report to refer to.. this site is a result of that.

    This place isn't dead, people just bitch and whine about how we need more good discussions here but you can't have one because then you get told you're a basher.

    When you owned the site back when I first joined you could have a discussion without people calling you a Windows basher. Anymore they bitch and whine.

    Like you said to me two years ago:

    You have to start **** sometimes to keep it interesting.

    Hey there JP

    Dont think we know eachother......but nice to see you back....I was a lurker for a while

    As for the constant os vs os debate...I think we all know that NO os is secure unless you update it, monitor it and maintain it......doesnt matter what you run

    Thing is I am in IT...and continue to work in IT because all my clients are windows based....... yes I know alot about the MS products......and am able to help out here at AO in that area.

    What I like about AO is the diverse knowledge of the members and I gleen alot about presenting security issues to my clients and show them the need for them to spend dollars on securing their networks, servers and workstations

    Keeps me in wine

    Gore...why do you take everything so personally

    I have comfort in the fact that lots of people\businesses all over the world run MS products.....and after investing lots of dollars into these already.....they are not willing to convert. I have users the CANT live with out their outlook and excel....and it is REALLY hard to convince them to switch to open office (which btw I install on very home users machine that wants me to install ms office on thier machine...without the disk...or license )


    I will have a steady supply of wine....no matter where I am

    right into my old age....older age......(I have a birthday coming up)....so I guess I too qualify as an OLD member
