moosifer_jones: the problem with installing Word is the stupid fucking paperclip thingy is now siwtched back on!
moosifer_jones starts attacking bits of Word, violently
gordon-r-d: I *hate* that paperclip...I wanted a little Nimon or a Meep...
Ladylark: Oh, Mags, i'll have to send you this little realtime video someone gave me... guy with a puter, and a large paperclip behind him.. "You look like you're writing a letter" "piss off!" "you look like you're writing a letter" "piss OFF!" "you look like you're writing a letter" "aaarrrghh!!! <attacks it>"

Jondar still needs to get used to this laptop... touchpad mice are slightly tricky :)
DoctorWho: You too, huh? ^_^
DoctorWho: My laptop has both a touchpad and a tit
Jondar: :)
Jondar: one of the first things I did on the laptop was turn pointer trails on as well... :)
Alryssa: a... tit?
Alryssa got used to the touchpad quickly... in some respects it's better than a mouse
El_Zoof: I hate the damn nipples
DoctorWho: One of those nipple/button things
DoctorWho: Of course, I usually just plug in a PS/2 mouse
DoctorWho: It has an interesting way of preventing conflicts between the three
Jondar: ah yes, the trackpoint... thank you IBM for that...
DoctorWho: When you use one (touchpad, nipple, external) it disables the others until a few seconds after the other stops moving
DoctorWho: That's what it's called?
Jondar: it was IBM that started that on their first range of ThinkPads
DoctorWho: In some respects I like it better than the pad
DoctorWho: But still... give me a real mouse anyday
El_Zoof: This is quite probably the only situation in which I believe balls are superior to nipples

El_Zoof imagines the Beeb doing a Doctor Who/Star Wars crossover set in a herb farm
El_Zoof: "Darth comes to Thyme"

Thete chucks another disc in the bin
Thete: glad these were cheap (but that might be part of the problem)
Alryssa: Gah. That sucks
DoctorWho charlies another disc in the bin

The_42nd_Doctor: Frisbeetarianism-- the belief that when you die, your soul goes up on the roof and gets stuck there.

TomFODW: English is the ultimate case of stealing and borrowing - Germanic structure, but the vocabulary has raped & pillaged from almost every other language on Earth
roger`: well, 'raped' is perhaps a little emotive
}-raven-{: the english language is a result of a one night stand gone horribly wrong.
TomFODW: in the old, original sense of the word - rape = abduct
TomFODW: i have an enormous vocabulary & write with extreme precisions
TomFODW: precision
TomFODW: oops
}-raven-{: BWAHA!
Nathan_Roberts: LOL
}-raven-{: QF!

Alryssa loves the scene in the park where Morpheus is feeding pigeons with a loaf of French bread... she comes along and talk to him and gets frustrated with his attitude, snatches the remainder of the loaf from his hand and throws it at him, bopping him on the head. The look on his face is one of sheer terror. Just my kinda gal. :)
Alryssa: King of Dreams, getting his arse kicked by his sister. Mwaa.
PeterJF eyes his sister warily
Alryssa: whaaaat? And she wears an ankh, too. She rocks. :)
PeterJF: [press] "The Goth Car goes 'Ankh' 'Ankh'"
Alryssa: *FWAP*
PeterJF: ooF
Alryssa: *FWAP*
PeterJF: ooF
PeterJF: [press] "The Ryss Sis goes *FWAP* *FWAP*"

DoctorWho: I'm in bed, on the bedside terminal
DoctorWho: I'm not tired enough to sleep, but too tired to actually do anything worthwhile
DoctorWho: So I'm in DWC instead ^_^
Alryssa: I've been in that state for about 72hours :)
PeterJF: I think I should find nate a job out of spite
DoctorWho: . o O ( My plan is working!! )
