Curious George - Mac Repair Hi monkeys, Long time no see. I've got a 14" Mac IBook and one of the USB ports became wrenched and now is useless. I kinda need the port as when I use a USB hub it slows down my scanner and creates a hassle at work. When I took it into the Mac authorized repair shops they told me that I needed to replace my entire logic board which would cost around $600-$700. Ouch! more inside
Curious George- How to get people to go to your website? Hi everyone. I've been scarce on mofi lately. I've been been busy working on, #1 getting my company website up and working, and #2 putting together a spec cooking show. We need people to go to our tv show site so we can use their stories. more inside
Royalty vs. Nature Is it just me, or would most anyone be able to achieve Albert's psuedo-accomplishments. Especially given unlimited money? He dreamt of a career in soccer, took part in the Paris-Dakar rally in 1985 and is a judo black belt. He represented Monaco at the Olympic Games in the bobsleigh four times and finished 7th in the world championships. Seventh in world bobsled championships? Be still my beating heart. This is less a dig at Albert (whom I'd love to trade places with) and more an invitation to have monkey's opine about nature vs. nurture. Seems that pretty much anyone could be seventh in world bobsled championships,no?
Paper-Thin TV Screens "Cheap, paper-thin TV screens that can be used in newspapers and magazines have been unveiled by German electronics giant Siemens." Very cool!
Curious George - Downloads on Tiger with Mozilla Holla monos. I'm having trouble downloading files from websites. I double click on the file (usually a PDF) and my download window comes up. It shows the status bar and when the bar is all the way to the right, it hangs up and just stays there, not completing the download. I have to cancel the download and as a result the files that I want don't actually download. I've checked my prefs on Firefox (v1.0) and can't seem to crack this nut. Any suggestions?

Curious George - Who's on dial-up? I'm just sort of..."curious" about how many mofites are still on dial up. This thread got me thinking. So, r-u dial up or broadband my monkeys?
Marie Antoinette Redux Audio link. Barbara Bush showing her "compassionate conservatism" regarding the Katrina survivors that were shipped to Texas. The hubris of this family is so thick you could cut it with a knife.
Curious George - Whom/What do you trust? I tell friends that there are only a couple of things that I completely trust. The first being my swiss army knife, the second being the triple AAA (American Automobile Club) and the last being my family. Each of these have never failed me. There have been a few others that have come close (a 1983 BMW 323i that never seemed to break down, Sony TVs that seemed to last forever, an old mac laptop that wouldn't die, several close friends/girlfriends that haven't been completely honest but whom I love nonetheless) but few that I could put in the pantheon. Whom or what can you trust, absolutely, without reservation?
Desperate George - What the hell happened to my mac? I have a dual 2gig G5 with 1.5 gigs of RAM and two 250gig internal hard drives running 10.4. I was asked to bring it into work since my partner whom I work with doing video graphics for a television show had his laptop crash. He was using the dual G5 while I was using my iBook. Then suddenly the maching that he was working on started to speak announcing every click of the mouse, every keyboard stroke. more inside
Curious George - Us Against Them I'm looking for stories (films/books/short stories) where two seeming absolute adversaries start as enemies and in the course of the story have to work together against a common foe. I know I've seen seen some things like this before, but can't for the life of me remember. Any thoughts my lovely monos?
Curious George - Sleep Apnea Followup Questions I wasn't sure this would get the proper attention if I posted to my previous querie, so I FFP'd. I met with the doctor who told me that I have a rather high ratio of waking (92 times) per hour and now I am going to get surgery for a deviated septum, tonsillectomy as well as removing some of my soft palate, all in one fell swoop in early August. I’m also going to get a cpap machine in the next few days and have a few questions for the folks who have experience with them. more inside
Curious George - The Occult in Islam Quid's post below reminded me that I could go here with a question I have been having trouble with. I am in the middle of the research phase of writing a screenplay that takes place in Iraq. Since the theme of the story has at least partially to do with the occult and demon possession, I've been reading all kinds of stuff on the history of Mesopotamia and Babylonian religion and the occult in that tradition as well as the history of Satan, demons, possession and the occult in Christianity and Judaism. Now I want to find out about the history of the occult, demonology and possession in Islam and am finding very few sources at my library as well as online. Does anyone in monkeyland have ideas about info resources on this admittedly fringe topic?
Help a monkey out Yes, this is a self link. I don't know if you all remember the posts that I did about this place in the past, but I am part of an ad-hock commitee to save, Irv's, a local hamburger stand here in West Hollywood. more inside
