    YKWS?

    That Earth rotates only once every 24 hours. Mars, for example, rotates every 24 hours and 37 minutes.

    Given, they'll probably count those 37 minutes just before midnight, but that would be for the best. That's usually 37 more minutes of sleep you get ;)

    Well Kahli, in the end we all have to pay for it, one way, or the other. ;)

    That's why the 'five-finger-discount' exists.

    Officially my lovely new laptop has so stuck pixels, and that really sucks.

    The fact that my car's starter motor doesn't go, and I have no readily available public transport either...that sucks. I'm pretty much housebound unless I want to walk the 3/4 hour to the main road.

    Lozza they replace laptop montiors after a certain percentage of pixels die. Might be worth checking on the Laptop's website/FAQ.

    Make sure you're still under warranty though as you will pay an arm and a leg to have it done.

    You know what sucks?

    Taking interest in a workmate and having the entire staff 'pushing' the two of you together after someone finds out.
    For crying out loud people, just because the staffroom tv is broken and you can't watch Springer and Bold & the Bueatiful, don't turn other people's lives into a soapie.

    What sucks, is leaving uni work until the last minute. It is the only area of my life where I do something stupid and not learn from it the 15 or so times after.

    actually it looks like the screen was just dirty. Didn't have a problem with it after shutting it down and cleaning the d*** thing.

    What sucks is that I've fraked my right arm and have spend the lasst 5 days doped up on pain killers and have assessment due next week.

    Well that's no good, hope it's nothing serious.

    Look for spray paint of the same colour.

    I spilt casserole on my sofa the other day. The smell will never go I think.

    after many x rays and other scans of varoius sorts the conclusion is that it isn't broken... just really badly damaged... and my doctor still wants me to go back for xrays in 2weeks if it isn't 100% better :p

    Marv: time for a good ol' uni game of dutch ovens by the sounds of it - that'll cover up the casserole smell

    Lozza: yeh, that does suck :(

    What really sucks is I keep thinking of things to post but I can't post them because I don't want to offend anybody and turn everyone against me again. See, I am really trying hard for you guys to be nice. So be nice to Nydey and everyone will be happy. :p

    Another thing that really sucks is watching classic movies for the first time on VHS. The awful picture quality and pan and scan really tarnished my opinion of many great movies. Luckily I have re-discovered many of them on DVD.
