Time for me to join the 21st century....

....And upgrade my technological know-how.

So. WHat do I get?

Do I get an apple?


A mac?




A PC?



A mouse?


What kind of chip?


I've already stocked up on vitamins to protect everything from viruses. But I refuse to buy a firewall. I'm scared of fire.

I was watching a rerun of Married With Children a couple of days ago and in the episode they were buying a new computer. Kelly asked what color they should get and it was a big laugh ... but now 10-15 years later you can do that

Blowing out someone else's candle does not make yours shine brighter.

Have you just come into some money, Pamela? Let's see, did Martina finally agree to share some (around 0.0005%) of your doubles winnings with you -- in proportion to your contribution to the doubles team that was Navratilova/Shriver?

Or did you just go the Chrissie route and snag some rich old guy? Surely Georgie doesn't count! I mean, how many films was he in? Even Serena's "acting" career is more illustrious that poor Georgie's.

Best left-right combination by a German (and that includes Max Schmeling): Steffi Graf. All she did in 1987 was knock Navratilova out of #1 and try to knock Evert out of the sport. (Mike Lupica in "The Best and Worst of Tennis in 1987", World Tennis)

"A couple of years ago, we nicknamed Steffi Graf's forehand 'Jaws'. And that music would go perfectly when she starts running in to the net, swarming on that little ball." (JoAnne Russell, during the 1988 Wimbledon final between Graf and Navratilova)

George was in...was in...what was it called again...um...that prunes commercial wasn't he? but I know for a fact he's done mega loads of extra work! He was in the Blair Witch Project. As a dead tree. So there.

Nah I've given up begging for money off Marti. But I DO get lots of bucks for my vowel work. I record my voice for several firms who make Fog Horns.

Anyhoo, can someone explain what I'm doing wrong with my computer Ram? I bought one but it just don't work...


And don't get me started on my Hard Drive.

I spent all day on this road. The hardest drive I've ever had!

Actually if you need a new hard disk the cheapest solution is to buy a floppy disk and just download some porn onto it.
