Democracy: a system invented by the ancient Greeks wherein citizens of Athens had all the rights, and everybody else in the then-known world had none. Freedom of speech: 1 ...

If the manual fails too?

If the manual fails too, you still have two options depending on your degree of patience:

1 - prayer, followed by a heartfelt 'amen'.
2 - defenestration, followed by a very satifying thud.

There's a great example of this diamond ring effect on the WOT symbol here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_eclipse but the explanation given t...

I haven't looked at it properly, yet, but I will. Here's my first instinctive reaction: NEVER download anything from a newly set-up site unless you are a malware investigator. especially NEVER download keygenz, crackz, warez, freebeez etc. NEVER trust a coder who uses terms starting with 'bablo' - t...

The Clean Machine.

I recommend to everyone who surfs the web that they get into the habit of running their browser a sandbox like this one: http://www.sandboxie.com/index.php?DownloadSandboxie When you finish browsing and delete the sandbox, all cookies, browser explo...
