Yes, we're just having problems with the software system that is our client database and clinical documentation record. That would be everything we do at work except for Outlook email. CMHC sucks!

Cab files were just M$ way of (as usual) wanting their own thing rather than using existing versions already out there.

Zip files? Tar files?

Cab is really more of a poorly supported proprietary container file as it does not really have any MS specific compression methods
it supports deflate, lzx, etc

Windows +R
Windows E

Seriously. Why does a man have to have a god damn hemmorhage trying to use it

Monopolowa vodka martinis. Tell the bartender to be very very sparing with the vermouth. Slightly dirty, and the olives ( 3 not 2 ) should stuffed with pearl onions or almonds. You will thank me later. Stay away from the Everclear unless you want to pole dance for your boss.

I like a man who can find something positive in any situation.

Not for a dirty vodka martini. Monoplowa is a really nice Polish potato vodka. I have only experienced it as described above, but the bartender that gave me the recipe and used to marinate my liver in them, won the Dallas Observer's best martini in Dallas award several times.

If it worked out of the box, then where would the fun be in tweaking it? Seriously. You can set up your own hotkeys using xbindkeys. Or I think Gnome / KDE have something to do that too, but I'm far too 1337tacular to use Gnome or KDE.

Which is why I'm using Windows Vista. Linux currently sucks for gaming, but Unreal Tournament 3 will change this in a month!
