I was cleaning out my favorites folder today, found this-forgot I had it.
Read each page, PLEASE continue to the end. It gets really interesting on page 3.
And don't forget to pay close attention to the disclaimer.

There's 2 people I can think of to show this to. Both insist on being able to have a "top of the line" computer built for high end usage and gaming for 300 to 500 bucks. Of course if they read this, they'll just think it backs up their claim :thumbsup:

NO! Using celery will destroy the sensitive gubbins! Only use stuff that you dig out of the ground like potatoes, turnips, and my late Aunt Gertrude!

Ok, so I followed the instructions and it still won't boot.
What should I do next?
BTW - I don't have a late Aunt Gertrude - should I kill the one that's still alive?

Place the carrot on top of the box - this is used to lure a rabbit into sitting on top of your computer as a case modification.

Preferring a more expensive look, I put truffles on top. I may now own the only computer in the world with a pig as a case mod.

Have you tried deleting the registry? It's a magnet for malware so I suggest you delete it.

BTW - I don't have a late Aunt Gertrude - should I kill the one that's still alive?

:trumpet: :thumbsup: :flowers:


Yes. THat's the only way.




Bleeping Computer does not recommend or condone tampering with the registry and/or premeditated homocide, with few exceptions. Void where prohibited, one per customer.

Ya so many twists in the plot line. The graphics are insane in the game. Good thing I threw in 3 gubbins in my new computer. I use to have 2 carrots in SLI, but the bunny ate one so I had to play on medium settings. What a bummer :thumbsup:

I used a plastic milk crate I found on the back of a truck instead of the recommended box because I wanted better air flow.

So, my question is, can I use the air hose at the local gas station to blow the dusty bunny off?
Or do I have to buy one of those expensive 13" Beagles to keep them away?

And my Gerbil operated fan only seems to work spasmatically during daylight hours.
How do I keep it operating in the dark?

Please hurry up with your responses. With all the Christmas Cheer being spread about now, I'm afraid that I'll fall asle..........
