Like you (as you said elswhere you had 20 windows open) I had 15 going last night trying to get something posted at h2g2. Of course 14 out of 15 would end up failing as 'page cannot be displayed'. But as you know sometimes the posting gets thru even if you can't see the page results yourself - I have learned not to double post in these cases. Imagine my shock this morning when I looked to see if my posting of "Chain Gang - by Sam Cooke" had actually made it thru the internet clutter last night. There, in exactly the place my post should have been was "Chain Gang - Sam Cooke" credited to Asteroid Lil. The web is indeed a tangled place.
Another time, when replying to Trillion at h2g2chat I clicked to delete some of her original message in the reply dialog box only to have it replaced by an e-mail she appeared to be writing to me and which she subsequently posted and I rec'd although I have never mentioned to her that I got a preview of it in a Yahoo chat box...
The internet and its system of caching is a mystery to me but I believe I once previously inquired of you about 'cookies' when I got paranoid about something you said or did that seemed like you were either reading my mind or my mail ...this is the same but ..different. Now I'm not as paranoid. smiley - biggrin

But none of this explains the aura of radiation, quite like the aurora borealis, that's been coming off my hard drive and illuminating this dark room... if y' can call acid-trip swirly-bits illuminating... nor the way the screen pulses as the speakers 'thump' simultaneously from time to time... nor how Trillion or Loony are monitoring my messages... Arrgghh!

**pours a very stiff drink muttering - god I'm glad I've got a sense of humour - I'm not even gonna ask where those two came from**

John, it may have something to do with the Mir Space Station's imminent splash down back here on Earth

The fact is (and I'm sure your NZ readers would love to hear this) that NASA has co-opted the Mir in an attempt to squelch the effects of El Nino and his sister La Nina.
The plan is to irradiate the ocean between NZ and South America and kill these monsterous twins. It has to be done now while they are dormant and sleeping on the bottom.
Did we learn nothing from the original Godzilla films?
I know you love a good story Loony - and I'm sure you could make up a good one based on this which your NZ readers would enjoy. There's nothing like a good conspiracy theory to take peoples minds off reality. No doubt some folks are nervous.
I look forward to any reports you might make on the effect this event is having down your way.

I've heard that Mir is full of broccoli, which is being used for ballast.

What with the difficulty of moving from one page to another at the moment, I haven't been back to the song title thread. Did we really simulpost the same song? *takes a deep breath, waves to onlookers and rappels down to check*

Talking about ballast, there is a pressing problem facing New Zealand's males. It is a case of men peeing badly. And please do not laugh, this is urgent.

Men, it seems, are suffering from "stage fright" when they front up to the country's urinals. The problem is so acute, apparently, that some sufferers plan a meeting to discuss it. While they can't "perform", as it were, alongside other men they are, according to one psychologist, happy to talk to others about it. One suggestion to ease the pressure is for people suffering from PPM (piss poor management) to practice at urinals where there are likely to be fewer people and gradually building up to busier toilets.

Men, of course, are always childishly concerned about their vital statistics in the appendage department but feelings of penile inadequacy while standing at the urinal next to a superstud is, somewhat surprisingly, not the cause of what is known to urologists as paruresis and its recipients as "shy bladder syndrome". According to experts who have made careers out of studying the complaint, the major cause is psychological, so it's all in the mind.

And just to ram home the point that it is not funny, it is estimated that 250,000 Kiwi blokes suffer from it. This may be the proverbial drop in the bucket compared to 17 million Americans, but even so it's still a lot of suffering.

While the world watches a Russian space station crash into the ocean somewhere near New Zealand on Friday, it's a fair bet more than a few Kiwi males will be busting to prove they can make a few public splashes of their own.

I read that in Japan women have small appliances that they take with them into public restrooms. As soon as they ensconce themselves, they take out the appliance and turn it on, whereupon it makes a white noise which disguises other sounds.

Lil, I read something similar about the Japanese. The story went on to mention that a Japanese firm is marketing toilets that flush silently.

The world will never know if I simulposted the same song and artist because mine never got there. My point was, and I hesitate to be so blunt, did you intercept it somehow and claim it for your own?
You clever computer crackers are capable of just about anything accoring to the media and I'm getting paranoid enough to believe it.
Look what happened after my first post here - lurkers everywhere!
*wonders if he is being too silly and obtuse - again*
Perhaps I should move to NZ where according to recent reports everybody's having trouble taking the piss.
