I had a compaq PC previously but the processor got fried when I tried to over-clock it - that's all I'm going to say about that. Now I do all my php on my dell optiplex (call me a sellout if you want) which is about 2 yrs old.
The crappy silver speakers aren't mine, the one I had before exploded if you play them too load which my nephew often does (he likes the noise). Yes that is duck tape, music makes the whole go round. The machine is a 1.6 mhz Dell with 256mb of RAM. There is a 16mb ATI graphic card in there (yes it sucks but I have a GameCube). 17 inch monitor, 1290 by 1024 pixels because there are 174 files on my desktop 58 of which are called New Text document(n).txt. The playstation controller and my cell phone is connected through the USB port. The printer is borrowed because I don't need to print anything - hardcopy? What is hardcopy? Paper pollutes the environment so do CRT moniters.
The Cds are all blank except the green one which is AOL 9.0 optimized which I can't use in jamaica but comes with the full version internet explorer 6 point something. There is a 3 and a half inch diskette there as well - diskettes are cool. I don't have a burner because I don't know if I could resist the temptation.
And yes the keyboard is pretty dusty I know. Dust is my friend. I could have built a PC if I wanted to, yes it would have been cheaper but I a software guy - leave me a lone. I'm gonna buy a 12 inch apple lap top - eventually. OSX kicks but.

shade commented: hey i have the same problem of numerous new text dosuments on my desktop too. renaming is for suckers. AOL and IE on one cd together. that sounds like a cd i'd love to break into lots of little pieces. and it's *duct* tape, not duck tape. plastic tape for use on ducts and piping - not for use on ducks, heheh. ... read 4 more

Wing Tip

written by yard Man, Sat, 03rd Apr 2004 at 2:09 am

Wing Tip of Air Jamaica A320 aircraft.
This flight was enroute from KIN/MBJ to JFK.

Notice the Static wicks at on the end of the Tip.

Well u may ask what is a Static Wick?

A static wick is a piece of metal connected electrically to the frame of the aircraft, with one or two spikes or needles on the end. It is housed in a fiberglass rod to insulate it from the airplane. Because the spikes concentrate the electric charge around them, and they are connected to the airframe, they allow the airplane to dissipate any static electricity it may build up out into the air. Also - if lightning DOES strike the plane, the chances are that the electricity will go through the dissipator and not through the airplane.
