on another note.. I've got a paper of psychology due in a hour or so and am not the least bit prepared for it >__> My mind feels so tired at the moment.. been cramming up as much as I could and still get the feeling that whatever I'm reading won't be what I would be needing And also don't remember half of what I just went through.. though it had something to do with Long and short term memory XD

This is so not right!! now I find out that my washing machine broke.. the attached dryer is fine but the washing machine its not storing the water .. instead simply skipping to the end of the spin cycle where it releases all the water >__< (without going through the first two stages of storing >> spinning >> and then release) first the toaster and now the washing machine ... whats next... the Air conditioner ? >__>

nah ... neither coffeine nor taurin work on me ... its because of my terribly low blood-pressure ... For quite a while I thought Im immune against those, but then I found out about my blood pressure and apparently I can have four mugs of straight espresso just in order to get my blood-pressure to the level where other people have theirs when they get up before having coffee ... well ... at least I will most unlikely suffer a heart attack or something ... not too bad either!

Im getting slightly jealous hearing about your little toy ... but then again: you said the ink cartridges cost a fortune, so no! ... Im fine with mine! Mine can also print DVD lables directly onto the DVD! YAY!
(22 May 2013 - 12:05 AM)
the one above has that option but as its bulky its a place-it-and-never-move-it kind of deal (also it got the wireless printing (and scans can get sent directly to the laptop connected to the wireless network)so that is neat)
(22 May 2013 - 12:02 AM)
I was thinking of getting myself one of them all-in-ones and if it just was for the scanner ... I had my eyes of one of them automatic-paper-feeding scanners ... I thought it would be nice to have it running next room with one of my computers and have it scan a bunch of documents all by himself ...

If you are having hard times getting cheap ink cartridges you might have a Hewlett Packard or Lexmark ... those only work with original cartridges, and you gotta get new ones as soon as one color is dry - thye cost up to 30 EURO and all the colors are in one cartridge! Bastard system that is! For moneysavers Epson or Canon is best. I was going with Canon since quite a while .. got my third Canon right now and each color comes separately and you can get black cartridges starting at 0,90 EURO up to 1,60 EURO or the original for 10 EURO ...

My brother wanted to sell me his when I started at uni, but it was already outdated when he bought it for his studies and it had been in the basement for quite a while ... thats when I got my first Desktop. I had thow of those, the 4 laptops and two more for work that I carried about but that weren't mine. First laptop was a 3.1 which was outdated a lot when I got it ... I needed one just for typing in the library and had no money so that was the only thing I could afford then. Each of those desktops have gone down after a while ... I always had troubles with the harddrive there ... I installed coolers every time but still ... Im just not lucky with Deskop PCs ... I had Win 98 there ... fiddled a bit with Ubuntu Linux but never gotten into it ... my first decent laptop was an XP and I still got that one ... just in case! You never know when your main computer breaks down and you need an extra computer for mounting or something ... then theres the Eee PC which is running on Win7 and my big-ass wide-sreen laptop which is also running on Win7. I bought it last year because I wanted to make sure to get one that still runs on the old system. Win7 ain't that bad ... I was fairly happy with XP, but Vista was so terrible that I got scared and had to avoid Win 8 ...

I still have a linux one running but its got its keyboard all messed up .. most of the keys stopped working so need to use an external for that laptop.. then an XP one is semi working (boots in DOS only) while all others are dead so the only fully opperational one is the Win7 Laptop (though its fan is dead and it over heats from time to time and then displays it Blue screen <_<)

I use that cleaning liquid for dried up ink cartridges. Im using a Canon and the cartridge itself is nothing more than an ordinary plastic tank, but you have to take care of the installed bits that spits the ink ... I usually take used ink-tanks and fill them up with cleaning liquid. Then I let him print a lot in BOLD mode ... usually takes care of whatever dirt has gotten in its way. If that don't work there is also destilled water. Just put a few millimeters worth on a plate and put your cartridge there ... leave it for the night and then do as described before. If THAT don't work! (It usually does.) you can still do the same with cleaning alcohol or paint dissolver, though that would be the harsh method!

I've had the laptops from the dos age to windows 3.1 and then XP >>> XP >>> Linux >> XP >> Linux again >>> XP again >> and now windows7
the desktop computers that went bad were from windows 95>> 98 >> and couple of XP's .. never had a Vista (though my sis/brother/and dad had those on their laptops)
(21 May 2013 - 11:39 PM)
Hmmm ... let me think ... I had a bunch of computers ... 4 private laptops and I had two for work ... so those were not actually mine! Damn it ... one even had Vista on it ... VISTA! ... Piece of shitty software that was! All nice and shiny but didn't work properly. One of my four laptops got stolen and I still have three of which I use two on a regular basis. One is a bad-ass 17 inch screen and one my cute little EeePC to carry about ...
(21 May 2013 - 11:38 PM)
yeah that would happen :O
though I've used those heaters (or I think it was oil heaters) to liquidize the jammed/dried up ink cartridges but that was not dangerous (except if one would leave it on top for too long and the entire pen would melt) thankfully it never came to that stage
(21 May 2013 - 11:35 PM)
I remember back in the days when I was living in a dormitory ... (student stuff) ... we had a communal kitchen there and some weird bastard was obviously too lazy to get himself to clean a pot ... he (or she! never underestimate lazy-bum women!) put some canned soup into the water heater ... the whole thing turned into a piece of junk !
(21 May 2013 - 11:33 PM)
the toaster was fine.. but I think someone else used it to toast something which they weren't supposed to and since then something might have gotten embedded into the grooves which in turn over heated the coils from inside <__<
(21 May 2013 - 11:32 PM)
Apart from that ... I believe Quality Management could be a promising line of work for you ... companies could send their home electronics to you for testing ... if you can't break it - what better proof of quality is there?
(21 May 2013 - 11:24 PM)
the toaster has a top area that extends upwards (it gets raised) onto where you can place flat (horizontal) items
Lol I know better as to not toast it like a normal slice of bread XD
and yeah I've never used (or had the need to use) a fire extinguisher before :O
you are right if I see one I'll sure get those mini sized units.Though they make a lot of mess with all their white foam spreading around places where you don't want it to go.. it still saves you from the excessive smoke that still disperses throughout the house even after the fire is dowsed.
(21 May 2013 - 11:11 PM)
@Night: What were you thinking? Your are not supposed to put pizza in your toaster! ... before getting a new toaster: add life-insurance and fire-extinguisher to your shopping-list!
(21 May 2013 - 10:41 PM)
last time there was a fire in this building.. and entire (6th) floor got charred and one girl died where as her brother got severely burnt... I don't really know the cause of the fire but I think it started with an electrical spark/fire .. Faulty wiring I presume :\
that was the day the building owners found out that there was no water supply running through the sprinklers system
(21 May 2013 - 10:20 PM)
Oh and once again the sprinklers didn't activate.. but then again probably their sensors are but high tuned and most of the smoke (while the plastic and all was burning) got sucked in by the smoke dispenser that's connected in the kitchen above the open windows which was near to where the toaster was kept. but yeah strangely enough I didn't get electrocuted or burned hmm.. need to add a new toaster to the shopping list before the folks return lol being home alone is so much fun
(21 May 2013 - 10:14 PM)
@Lag/Soap: Remember when I talked about I smelt my bread burning?... and you (lag) said to save it... well it happened again and this time I didn't save it.... The toaster got on fire and my bread got burnt... well the bottom crust was all charred but hey I couldn't let it all go to waste.. the top part with all the pizza toppings was still perfect so I sliced the good part off, ate it and threw the toaster into the sink and threw jugs of water to dowse the fire while enjoying my Pizza

well figured out my minecraft password for that free server. I guess it's been a month or 2 I didn't play. My house and everything in it is gone! like it was never there. Actually... there was 1 piece of wood. that's it.
