tech shack: January 2006

Tuesday, January 17, 2006


When we visit bathrooms, hotel rooms, changing rooms, etc., how many of you know for sure that the seemingly ordinary mirror hanging on the wall is a real mirror, or actually a 2-way mirror (i.e. they can see you, but you can't see them)?
There have been many cases of people installing 2-way mirrors in female changing rooms. It is very difficult to positively identify the surface by just looking at it. It's time to get paranoid. So, how do we determine with any amount of certainty? Just conduct this simple test:
Place the tip of your fingernail against the reflective surface and if there is a GAP between your fingernail and the image of the nail, then it is a GENUINE mirror. However, if your fingernail DIRECTLY TOUCHES the image of your nail, then BEWARE, for it is a 2-way mirror!
So if not at home and changing before a mirror, do the "fingernail test". It doesn't cost you anything. It is simple to do, and it might save you from getting "visually raped"!
Share this with your girlfriends.

True Friends

Feeling a little depressed lately thinking bout friendship so I thought of voicing a few of my oppinions here.
People today, in all this new world technology and thinking, have lost sight of what a true friendship is.I thought I would help the world out a little and explain what real, true friends mean to me,hmm let's see:
1. Friends don't have to be exactly the same. Friends have similarities but they also have their differences. They key to opening up the world of friendship is not only to expand on similarities but to accept each other's faults. Because you can't ever judge your friend.
2. Friends have to argue! No one likes to but it is necessary to be healthy. Cause if you agree on everything, either the government has expanded cloning subjects or someone isn't being true and is trying a little too hard.
3. You have to be comfortable together or else you just aren't going to click. If you feel edgy around the person then something isn't quite right.
4. Friends love unconditionally. They have there little angry moments but what's done is done and all is forgive and forget. Why let something that happened in the past ruin what friendship you could have in the future?

tips to keep your computer safe

most people think that by having an antivirus and the windows firewall running, your problems have been solved. NO its not true, in truth, you dont even need an antiivirus if you know what your dealing with.So this are a few tips to get your computer safe, clean and tidy:

1. update windows!!! - yeah..this is one of the most important things to do, if your computer is patched up , less is your computer vulnerable to attacks.

2. windows antispyware or whatever its called now - yes..its free..n its effective..make sure you have this running..itstead of some software that you have to pay.

3. spybot search n destroy - its free also, and its very effective.It also has a personalize imunization thingy which is very helpful and makes the user feel alil more secure..

4. last but not least, any antivirus software such as nod32 and bitdefender - no..pls don go for norton, i have to much bad experience using them. Theres also free antivirus which im sure u can find on the net

5. other useful softwares - crapcleaner or cclearner - this is a very good free software which gets rid of unwanted files and any registry problems. I have no trouble using it and its updated frequently.

dumbest kid

A young boy enters a barbershop and the barber whispers to his customer, "This is the dumbest kid in the world. Watch while I prove it to you."
The barber puts a dollar bill in one hand and two quarters in the other, then calls the boy over and asks, "Which do you want, son?"
The boy takes the quarters and leaves. "What did I tell you?" said the barber. "That kid never learns!"
Later, when the customer leaves, he sees the same young boy coming out of the ice cream store. "Hey, son! May I ask you a question? Why did you take the quarters instead of the dollar bill?"
The boy licked his cone and replied, "Because the day I take the dollar, the game's over!"

Boxers Vs. Briefs

tech shack
Whether a boxer or a brief wearer, a man's underwear choice is generally uncompromising. And, when asked about the other sides' pros and cons, he has a general lack of knowledge or experience to draw from. This debate could clearly use some clarity. Therefore, here is a list to review of the positives and negatives with each style's design.
Boxers Pro:Comes in a wide array of colors and patterns. The front fly is much easier to use. Easier to take off (women agree). Crotch temperature stays cooler thus encouraging higher sperm count. Women prefer them on their man. Considered socially acceptable loungewear. Can camouflage a man's physique.
Con:When wearer becomes excited, it shows.The legs are open along the bottom. Provides almost no support. Bunches up when worn inside pants. Thick waistband can cause irritation. Their looseness can cause them to ride up above the waist.

Prevents "dangling". Won't bunch up when worn under pants. Legs have elastic. Provides support. Stays where you put them - no ride up. Looks best on a guy in great shape.The choice of European men. Con:Can be the cause of reduced sperm count. Overlapping fly is impossible to use. When the elastic band deteriorates, the whole brief looks tacky. Only comes in white and a few colors. Traditionally worn by nerds. Can become out of shape and "bag" in all the wrong places.

Joke of the Day

Thought i'll share a joke n hope u all find it funny:-
A young man is showing off his new sports car to his girlfriend. She is thrilled at the car's speed. "If I do 200 mph, will you take off your clothes?," he smirks.
"Yes!" says his adventurous girlfriend. And as he gets up to 200 mph, she peels off all her clothes. Unable to keep his eyes on the road, the car skids onto some gravel and flips over. The naked girl is thrown clear, but he remains jammed beneath the steering wheel. "Go and get help!" he cries.
"But I can't! I'm naked and my clothes are gone!"
"Take my shoe," he says, "and cover yourself."
Holding the shoe over her pubes, the girl runs down the road and finds a service station. Still holding the shoe between her legs, she pleads to the service station proprietor, "Please help me! My boyfriend's stuck!"
Billy-Bob -- the mechanic -- looks at the shoe and says, "There's nothing I can do for you... he's in too far!"

Allie, then, with her love for Noah still alive, stops by Noah's 200-year-old home that he restored for her, "to see if he's okay". It is evident that they still have feelings for each other, and Allie has to choose between her fiancé and her first love.Watch it!!
