I thought you'd never ask, kaizersoze.

It means you can shop at garage sales and pick up a CD for 10 cents
that contains a program intended for win95 called LIFE.

put in your CD-rom or whatever and view
the covers of the Life Magazine from 1936 -1972 in windows mpeg format. :thumbsup:

If you want it I'll send it to ya'. :flowers:

I've got a similar CD, it's by Time-Life a sort of encyclopedia of history illustrated with images from Life magazine. It was really good, except that history stopped at around 1978 (even though it was bought in ~1995) :thumbsup:

I wonder if there is a modern equivalent? (Please don't tell me it's Encarta!)

There is a thread in The Speak Easy titled "What is the meaning of life?" in case anyone's interested.

To link to another post, you must copy and paste the HTTP: link to the post (or the thread) to your text box, and then surround the link with a BBC code.
Instructions for referencing a URL code can be found towards the bottom of Scarlett's post here:

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/34715/bb-code-application/

If you have Firefox, you can "cheat" and use the BBCodeXtra extension for formatting your posts.

Regards,
John

Out of curiosity, Have you read Man's Search for Meaning, by Viktor Frankl?
