Re: BMI and you

I'm 6'2" and my ideal, according to what I've read, is down around 175. I think one of us is doing something wrong on the math there.

As a side note, I'm going to start attending most of the midnight movie series out in San Jose on Saturday night. They kick it off this weekend with Iron Man, but most of they time they have older more cultish films. Big Lebowski, Shawn of the Dean, Wrath of Khan, etc. It's been a ton of fun in past...

ACDC is relatively slow when compared with power metal and 90% of their popular songs sound exactly the same so it gets repetitive and boring very quickly. Granted that one sound is a really really good sound.

Re: "User has not been granted the requested logon type"

I hate it when stuff like this happens in XP. It's such a pain to dick around with. Make sure that you have a password set on all relevant accounts or it will cause you problems. Sounds like you already do though. Make sure that shitty simple file sharing is turned off as well.
