Alryssa: I got a problem with this 'ere winmodem. The software crashes while I'm using it at random. Now... I think I may have tracked it down to it sharing an IRQ with my graphics driver. Should I change it to one that's not being used?
SpooForBrains: yeah worth a try, but IRQs can be tricky buggers
SpooForBrains: what OS are you running?
Alryssa: 98 SE
SpooForBrains: tried totally uninstalling it and reinstalling it? then it should reassign an IRQ and that might resolve the conflict
Alryssa: Yeah, I tried that. :-/
Alryssa: Windows freaked out on me for about 15 minutes
Alryssa: "No, the modem is HERE! ARGH!":

Shel: i have this horrible philosophy about school right now... don't care how i do as long as it gets done
Shel: and i went into the final exam with the lowest possible grade for the class as a C, so not worried about failing
Shel: basically, if i get an A on the test, i get an A in the class...
Shel: if i fail the test, i get a C
gordon-r-d: and a C is a pass?
Shel: so either way... i pass!
Shel: A, B, C, D, F... only F is failing
gordon-r-d: oh well, your lack of concern is understandable then :)
MarkyD: I had a similar approach to my dissertation - if I scraped a pass, a got a 2:1 overall - if I got 100%, I still got a 2:1 - guess what I aimed for? ;-)
gordon-r-d: heck, in that scenario I'd just sit there and flick boogers at the backs of the heads of those sitting in front of me

Shel: but i don't think i'm that overweight!
Shel: or am i deluded?
gordon-r-d: you don't look overweight to me...
Greebo_T_Cat: take off your shirt. we'll give you an honest opinion, right guys?
