Another way to see the parrot

Gary and others -- If you HAVE a DIAL-up connection, and can't watch Flash presentations, you can probably see this slightly shorter version that uses Windows Media Player

AND (for being so patient) you can see other Pet Stars do their stuff:

P. S. -- first, you have to watch the commercial...

Sorry CJ, still can't get this one. Seems to download OK, get the add at the start, but no parrot sketch. Tried with both the Flash version and the Windows Media version, using both Firefox and IE as browsers. Guess I'm not going to get this one. Thanks for the effort in finding this, hope others have more luck.

I did have problems recently with WMP, but downloading latest version seemed to have resolved them. Will have to check with other sites to see if this is still the case.

Have just viewed a video using Flash from a post on trash shredding supplied by Doug, so seems my Flash player is working OK, wonder why it did'nt work fully on your link?

Maybe not Gary ;-)

Gary, if you want to test your Flash software again, and for anyone else who wants a good laugh -- check this out

Hi CJ,

Yes, got that one no problems, very funny.

Wonder why the Add text was written in English but spoken in German.

Just had another go with the Parrot. No problem this time. Took about 20 mins to load, (of which 12 mins was the add that went before it).

I think my problem downloading before has something to do with an intermittent fault I have with my connection to RP.

By the way, just love Einstein.

How many forum members does it takes to change a light bulb?

1 to change the light bulb and to post that the light bulb has been changed
14 to share similar experiences of changing light bulbs and how the light bulb could have been changed differently
7 to caution about the dangers of changing light bulbs
1 to move it to the Lighting section
2 to argue then move it to the Electricals section
7 to point out spelling/grammar errors in posts about changing light bulbs
5 to flame the spell checkers
3 to correct spelling/grammar flames
6 to argue over whether it's "lightbulb" or "light bulb" ... another 6 to condemn those 6 as stupid
2 industry professionals to inform the group that the proper term is "lamp"
15 know-it-alls who claim they were in the industry, and that "light bulb" is perfectly correct
19 to post that this forum is not about light bulbs and to please take this discussion to a lightbulb forum
11 to defend the posting to this forum saying that we all use light bulbs and therefore the posts are relevant to this forum
36 to debate which method of changing light bulbs is superior, where to buy the best light bulbs, what brand of light bulbs work best for this technique and what brands are faulty
7 to post URL's where one can see examples of different light bulbs
4 to post that the URL's were posted incorrectly and then post the corrected URL's
3 to post about links they found from the URL's that are relevant to this group which makes light bulbs relevant to this group
13 to link all posts to date, quote them in their entirety including all headers and signatures, and add "Me too"
5 to post to the group that they will no longer post because they cannot handle the light bulb controversy
4 to say "didn't we go through this already a short time ago?"
13 to say "do a Google search on light bulbs before posting questions about light bulbs"
1 forum lurker to respond to the original post 6 months from now and start it all over again.

PCs and Macs unite movie

This is a cute movie - sorry it is for high speed only -

http://users.skynet.be/fa001435/vide...ktimeleger.mov

For those of you on dial-up, the movie is a tragic love story with a happy ending and this is a frame from near the end of the movie.

I thought it was appropriate considering the animated discussion lately about Macs vs. PCs - enjoy, Margaret

My first time post here.
Somebody sent me this. Excuse me if u have read it before.

A worldwide survey was conducted by the UN. The only question asked
was: "Would you please give your honest opinion about solutions to the food shortage in the rest of the world?"

The survey was a huge failure. Why?

In Africa they didn't know what 'food' meant
In India they didn't know what 'honest' meant
In Europe they didn't know what 'shortage' meant
In China they didn't know what 'opinion' meant
In the Middle East they didn't know what 'solution' meant
In South America they didn't know what 'please' meant
And in the USA they didn't know what 'the rest of the world' meant!!

(With apologies to all!)
