See if you have any "website links" on your profile and on each of your cache pages.

Remove all viruses / spyware / keylogers etc or your new password will get grabed too if it hasn't already.

How active is this person's mind? I think Geodes makes a valid point.

The day analogue TV is turned off there will be a good few who never control their TV viewing again. I'v seen it first hand.

I don't mind there being a star system for those whose perceptions work differently, but I don't care what the system is. I do agree a set of straight...

Mama Bear always carried a stick, usually one she'd found somewhere
Just be carefull :wink: . I saw a kid almost put one through his jugular when he sliped :shock: . It gave him a good scratch but that was it luckily. I wouldn't have liked to have to deal with that one </shuder>.
