  1. Well seeing as the last few cases I bought didn't have powers supplies in them, your advice may appear a bit off. Though to be fair, I doubt that Jackass would be buying a high end case like that. Sadly 10 min jobs with computers can end up being 2 hr jobs!
  2. Outlook is the worst! V. annoying!
  3. The best way to think of IR is as a parallel programe you can dip into from PS when preparing images for the web. The idea being, you create your image in PS and then slice and dice make rollovers etc in IR. As someone mentioned above, click on Icon at bottom of toolbar to switch open file to the other programme. As an aside the new version of Photoshop CS3 Image Ready has disappeared as many of IR's fetures are now within PS itself.
  4. FF is for geeks, to have to trawl through pages of crappy tweaks to find ones that do what Opera has built in means I simply don't bother - a waste of time.
  5. Seeing as FF nicks it's features from Opera, it probably means you haven't discovered them yet. Someone mentionrd bookmarks - F4 hides and reveals the bookmarks panel [also has history, notes,links,info,windows + other useful features. Other handy shortcuts z - back x-forward 1 - previous tab 2 -next tab cntrl+tab - cycle through tabs 0- zoom in 9- zoom out 6- standard size cntrl+v - paste + go [so annoying when you use a prog. that doesn't have this simply + very useful idea] Cntrl+Shft+C- copy to note alt+p - preferences worth spending time tweaking Opera - very customisable Shft+F12 Customise interface. Cntrl+z - undo, so if you close a page by mistake, you can undo that closure and all history for those pages is retained too. Mouse gestures - fantastic. http://www.opera.com/products/desktop/keyboard/ - shortcut list. I also recomended someone on here to give Opera another go fairly recently and another handy thing is that you can not only run Opera alongside FF + IE but you can have several versions of Opera on a computer [diff versions]. So my girlfiend and I have a copy each on all the computers we share, with our own profiles, bookmarks etc and as Opera allows you to restart with all your tabs intact and with previous history too, we simply leave all the sites we each prefer permanently open in our respective web browsers. One of the 3 best designed programmes I use on a computer. Photoshop and Directory Opus being the other two. Opus is to Windows Explorer as Opera is to Internet Explorer. http://www.opera.com/support/tutorials/ videos to learn about Opera.

  8. So bringing in another variable, no-one else is talking anbout, i.e. ill people or anorexics or those who starve themselves bar you. We are talking about normal heathy people. I find that very hard to believe as you have problems reading more than a few consecutive words. So you are patronizing and stupid. What a total and complete bigot you appear to be. You know nothing about me, assume a lot of innaccurate nonsense, fail to read posts all the way through and you have this really condescending attitude as if you are above others. You have posted poorly written, scientifically pathetic posts, ignore valid well researched references and yet you sneer and look down at others. You can probably run 10k faster than me, I couldn't even run half that distance, yet I'm regarded as being very fit [at other sports]. Though, I can probably do other things better/faster than you, like a 100m as I'm a sprinter. Maybe your colleagues would beat you there too, A VO2 max test is how you measure fitness, not how good you are at a particular sport, though if you have to do by running or cyling, if you already do those activities then you have a big advantage over those that don't. Beating someone at one activity means you are better then them at that activity, not you are simply fitter per se. Now that is generalizing. That's not what I said. Go and learn to read How stupid are you? I have already pointed out that I did not make sweeping statements, I made qualified comments, but you probably did bother to read the whole paragraph. Go and look at the evidence I linked above, which you so conveniently ignored. I refuse to bother reasoning anymore with an illiterate, bigoted troll, so I shall apply a kill switch to anything you post. regarding your deluded reasons as to why you are not slim. You eat more than you need to, you put on weight, it's no more complex than that. Basic physics/chemistry. The only 'complexity' is the stupidity of foolish humans who delude themselves as to how much activity/food they actually do/consume.
  9. The Mayo clinic in the US does a lot of work in this area "A recently published study he led showed that thin people are on their feet an average of 152 more minutes a day than couch potatoes." More info on NEAT here http://mayoresearch.mayo.edu/mayo/research/levine_lab/about.cfm How they measured the info here http://mayoresearch.mayo.edu/mayo/research/levine_lab/neat_things.cfm This research has been acknowledged in the Lancet BTW, so pretty credible too. An easy digest of the research is here. http://www.collisiondetection.net/mt/archives/001107.html I'm they will be fascinated by your gibberish. As for laughing at walking up stairs, there's a big poster advertising campaign at the moment regarding using stairs and losing weight. More info here http://www.obesityresearch.org/cgi/content/abstract/14/12/2210 The fact that you have a problem with different people, doesn't mean I do. You assume a lot and know very little it seems. Actually reasearch has shown that that is exactly the case. Never said it did, but a fatter person will struggle to get as fit as quicly as a leaner person and a leaner person will need less effort to move their lesser bulk and is therefore more efficient. Try cycling uphill or running a 200m event with an extra sone or two of fat and you'll look pretty silly compared to those who have lower fat levels. Your facts aren't actually true and the paragraph of your sentence is poorly and lazilywritten Enlish. Maybe that's how you think, so when something is written correctly you get all confused. Confusing skill with fitness is what you seem to be doing. If you want to measure actual fitness, you need to do a VO2 Max test. Also if someone smokes that will impair fitness even if they are less fat. Your problem with scientific methodology and lack of understanding, is that you do not realise that you should have only have one variable, when doing comparisons. You compare things with 10s of variables which render any conclusions fatuous and nonsensical and certainly non scientific. You are too lazy to even use the shift key to capitalize your writing when needed, which illustrates your slothful nature, quite nicely.
  10. Actually you simply cannot read. It was not a sweeping statement if you actually read the whole post. Maybe it's because you can't be bothered to finish things is why you weigh more than your daughter! I was not talking about models who have a cigarette for breafast and some coke for tea. It's you who seems to be obsessed with them and keep bringing them into the argument. Which has nothing at all to do with what I was saying. I never denied making the above statement, but you have taken it out of context and you will note it does not say all people who are skinny are more active. I was specifically talking about comparing similar people, who ate similar amounts yet had dissimilar weights. The reason for the discrepancy is the different amounts of [base] activity/exercise they do relative to each other. And fidgeting, more nervous movements and rushing around uses a lot more calories than a more slothful, less active person uses. Some people walk up stairs, some run up, maybe a couple of steps at a time. One little difference like that on it's own, could explain why you weigh more than your daughter. If you cannot be bothered to read posts properly, I won't bother responding to your idiotic posts. You obviously have a thing about people who look good or care about their appearence. Why even worry about it, unless it something that actually bothers you more than you like to admit. I don't care what you look like, it's your choice. If you want to be fat, be fat, it you want to have a sixpack put some time in down the gym, but don't complain because some people do care about how they look. You simply come across as someone who is insecure and feels threatened by slim and healthy people. Which you displace by attacking them, the media or brands of clothing.
  11. So you have measured the total calories burned by you and your daughter each day and eat exactly the same amount of food. Oh sorry you don't do you, you actually eat bigger portions some of the time. Well over time that adds up considerably. What the media says has no actual effect of your waistline. Unless you change something as a result. And you probably eat more relative to the total amount of calories burnt if you have more excess weight than her. You simply think that doesn't happen. I'd say your views seem to be more about your own false perceptions and personal insecurities. And how do you show off a six pack whilst wearing an Armani suit. Besides having a six pack is not a measure of fitness, which is very, very sport/activity specific. And how exactly have you measured this 'fact'? Plus there's the ability/mental aspect to excercise. I've did some martial arts after 5 years away and at a low period of general excercise and yet I appeared much fitter than those half my age and in regular training - why? Simple, I was much better technically at this than they were and was more relaxed about how I did things, so got less tired and out of breath. I've seen plenty of very fit people from other activities struggle [fitness wise] with new excercises, simply as they weren't muscle/memory trained at that specific skill and tried too hard.
  12. Another person who reads between the lines and ignores what is written on the actual line itself.. Take two people who appear to eat the same and if one is thinner than the other and you will find that the skinnier person uses more calories through total daily activity. Most of which activity is invisible to the casual observer. Fat people eat more than they need to maintain weight. Thinking otherwise is simply delusional.
  13. Thank you Becky, that is precisely it. See Willman, some people are able to read posts correctly and without getting all defensive.
  14. You have a real complex/attitude here. We are not talking about anorexics [bar you], as not all skinny people are anorexic. And skinny is very different from bony, which is how I would descibe an anorexic. I certainly don't think people should stave themselves, eat heathily, yes, which is very different indeed.. Do some excercise yes. But if they don't want to, that's their problem.
  15. Being sarcastic to illustrate further how you are still missing the point doesn't help. No one is talking about unhealthily thin people here [other than you] or recommending one should be emaciated. Fat people don't excercise enough compared to what they consume and certainly are not fit. There's a chap I've seen out dancing, he puts his all into it, dancing fast and furiously and yet every time I see him he's even bigger and even fatter. So he must eat an awful lot of food to do that. Can't se his knees lasting much longer.
