  1. Yeah, that's what they all say... until the gal with the big tits comes into the room!
  2. No, that was the Ren And Stimpy short, "A Yard Too Far."
  3. Now, it's been all over the news lately, but, only a handful of times do they ever go to the logical conclusion. Okay, so, yes, the world's first successful face transplant was performed. But, one thing they have only touched upon briefly. As a transplant... the new face must come from... SOMEWHERE! :& Now, surely, since a living person wouldn't willingly give up their face, they have to come from corpses! Also, a face transplant means you have someone ELSE'S face! Imagine the implications...

    Where can Opera 9 preview be found? Opera always manages to so easily bury anything that isn't the current version in multiple layers of constantly changing web addresses. Thanks!
  5. OMG! The theme to the movie Electric Dreams! I own that soundtrack on LP! It was given to me as a birthday gift bought from the cheap off racks at the record store next to the arcade where my birthday in the 6th grade was held! I also remember that birthday was delayed because I got chicken pox just before my birthday. :&

    No way of knowing, really. What ever needed to be left open that I didn't finish from before. So, it fluctuates. Sometimes many, sometimes few. The test case I created had somewhere between 30 and 40
  7. Woody Harelson. Larry Flint is the publisher of Hustler magazine who was left paralyzed after a failed attempt to assassinate him by some racist nut. So, the combination of a porno publisher in a wheelchair and Dalek porn...
  8. Oh, man... this thread just made me think of a really bad joke! Q: Who should play Davros in "Abducted By The Daleks?" A: Larry Flint!
  9. It's loading now but thanks for the effort. The Dalek props look pretty good. Not well controlled, though. Probably made by that company that sells them made to order for fans. Actually, how COULD this thing be made "legally?" Dalek is a registered joint trademark between BBC and the Terry Nation estate.

    Yes, the designers deny it's there. One of the things that has gradually made me drift away from it. Plenty of examples from others on how to re-create the situation and Opera just says to adjust the # of connections. Unfortunately, the deny it's there outright answer is indicative of software that will, eventually, just rot away. I wasn't aware there was a 9.0. I could try it. But, I highly doubt it will help. I never thought that a new tab might be a new instance. It never seemed to be. e.g. Internet Explorer runs higher crash risks once you open beyond 9 instances. But, Opera, etc. never had that problem. And, as far as what I will call memory leak for sake of ease, neither Firefox nor Netscape versions that had tabbed browsing suffered from the same problem. The new instances thing would be easily solved with MY idea. DON'T load ALL the pages on start. Just the one in the current focus. Instead paste the URL's into the destination field and wait for actual loading until they become the focus or manually loaded by the user. I set my cache to 40 MB because it seemed to operate better there under my setup than at 60.

    No, Opera has a threshold of tabs where once X are opened, page downloads slow down faster than they should. A memory leak, IMO, because, when it happens, other things become affected with symptoms that are indicative of low memory resources. Like overlays in Windows Explorer display solid black, etc. and can only be fixed by a reboot. And, at the moment, I have a lot of tabs open to go through. Once I get them down and closed, Opera will start to behave. But, this has been there since 7.54 and not present in the Preview releases, even though it is in Betas, so, it's something they add in the Betas but not the Previews. My guess is the Java engine? I've made the cache settings pretty much as great as possible.

    Paste And Go is a favorite of mine, too. Also the ability to pretty much completely remove the toolbar. I moved all my icons into a drop down from the destination bar.

    There's a shock! Oh? I was not aware of this, I don't think. How can I use this one click? I find I am closing Opera tabs unnecessarily because Opera, sometimes, won't "detect" the click until several in. By then, I've also accidentally clicked on another close tab which it, conveniently, of course, accepts on the FIRST try.
  14. Yes, a film of much topic on the old board. Anyway, it airs again on Sci-Fi Channel in the US, Saturday, December 3rd, 2 PM CST.
  15. Sounds about right. It was Jo Grant, 3rd Doctor Jon Pertwee's assistant (Hmmm... you do realize I could make a gag using all of those following words: doctor, jon, pert, wee, and ass? ) with her domes pressed against the Dalek's. I don't remember if I did send them. PM me and I will, though, if you want all the bases covered.
  16. I admit, I'm interested in seeing it. Such interests made me hunt down Kathy Manning and her Dalek on line years ago.
  17. Oh, so, THAT'S the real story? I remember a year or so ago when it was announced the Terry Nation estate wasn't releasing the Daleks for the new series, at first. They had said that it was because the new show wanted to include gay Daleks. I knew that HAD to be wrong! Makes no sense! Poor Daleks. First, they're turned into Pakistanis, and now this...

    Well, I really would like to see Opera back on its own feet again. But, I have to say that the majority of my web browsing was taken over by Firefox. Opera, for too long, ignored a problem that has been there for a year, a problem that enabled pages to think they were open when they were being downloaded. Thus, they never finished. Opera still has the idea of REAL saved sessions (Netscape 8's idiotic idea is to only save them when YOU save them AND ONLY as your default opening "home pages." Idiots!) which is essential, IMO, because of how a web page can crash your entire browser when you open it. Even at that, Opera needs to rethink their strategies. Forcing users to move over from a save anywhere to save in one place scenario severely limits disaster recovery for the software because you must save your session, rename the file, blah blah blah. Plus, the excedingly SIMPLE idea of having a user option where Opera, on start, DOESN'T load the page CONTENTS, just the contents of the pane in focus, and only the URL's in the destination bar for all others. Then, on selecting a new tab, the page loads when it becomes the focus, or, manually loads when told to by the user. Would drastically reduce load times and potential crashes, e.g. you open a page that crashes Opera, and, the current structure is if you reopen the session, it will crash again because it automatically opens all the pages. A great idea only IF crashes never occurred. Which Opera does a lot, I'm afraid. Just randomly disappears from memory sometimes, too. So, to be honest I'd rather see some of Opera's features imported into Firefox, since, if Opera could do it, Firefox DEFINITELY could. For instance, the simple concept of RESIZING tabs to fit instead of scrolling them off into right side infinity.

    It's finally out, it seems. You what was even more surprising? Opera 8.51 actually appears to have FIXED the memory leak, 0 bytes page loading error that has been in there since all non Preview releases after 7.54. Acronis has recently released Disk Director 10. I wonder if they DIDN'T test it... like True Image 9.0... and True Image 8.0, and...
  20. http://www.tv.com/tracking/viewer.html&ref...00&ref_type=101 BBC Squashes Dalek-on-Lesbian Porn Nov 29, 2005 A pornographic film that features the Doctor Who baddies the Daleks romping with a trio of naked, swingin' ladies has been forced off the market by the BBC. The BBC, as well as the estate of the creator of the evil robots, Terry Nation, weren?t too amused to discover an X-rated Abducted by the Daleks DVD up for sale on eBay. The video features a trio of Daleks ? legless, trashcan-shaped robots whose only appendages are a suction-cup like device and a death ray ? chasing a trio of women around their spacecraft. While that?s the basic plot summary of a dozen or so Doctor Who storylines, this one?s a little different: The women were abducted from a three-way tryst in the woods by the Daleks, who ultimately join in the fun. The video was removed after an uproar from BBC officials as well as longtime Doctor Who fans, many of whom just couldn?t identify with groping women. Of course, the Cybermen, another longtime Who baddie, are still perfectly suited for roles gay porn. "Dalek-on-Lesbian?" Is that anywhere near the birthplace of Shakespeare?
  21. Wasn't she supposedly one of the people who left the House in the shortest amount of time ever on the UK series?
  22. Or any music CD. Or any multi-track CD.
