I think Morbo means something that would tell you automatically as each
person connects or disconnects -- sending you a message like "Bluestar
has logged in" or "Bluestar has left the game" -- and not limited to
particular players, as 'profile' is.

Kiri's WWW of URLs:

THE COOLEST site I've seen in a while: NOTE TO DAGMAR -- there are hedgehogs! ... ls_60.html

For those of us who love Naruto, a quiz

Vague but true -- Scav's fault

I don't know why, but I think this is cute

For those of you who remember the "Who's on First" routine......Enjoy!

Bud Abbott and Lou Costello in the 21st Century:

ABBOTT: Super Duper Computer Store... Can I help you?

COSTELLO: Thanks. I'm setting up an office in my den, and I'm thinking about

buying a computer.


COSTELLO: No, the name's Lou.

ABBOTT: Your computer?

COSTELLO: I don't own a computer. I want to buy one.


COSTELLO: I told you, my name's Lou.

ABBOTT: What about Windows?

COSTELLO: Why? Will it get stuffy in here?

ABBOTT: Do you want a computer with windows?

COSTELLO: I don't know. What will I see when I look in the windows?

ABBOTT: Wallpaper.

COSTELLO: Never mind the windows. I need a computer and software.

ABBOTT: Software for windows?

COSTELLO: No. On the computer! I need something I can use to write
proposals, track expenses and run my business. What have you got?

ABBOTT: Office.

COSTELLO: Yeah, for my office. Can you recommend anything?!

ABBOTT: I just did.

COSTELLO: You just did what?

ABBOTT: Recommend something.

COSTELLO: You recommended something?


COSTELLO: For my office?


COSTELLO: OK, what did you recommend for my office?

ABBOTT: Office.

COSTELLO: Yes, for my office!

ABBOTT: I recommend office with windows.

COSTELLO: I already have an office and it has windows! OK, let's just
say, I'm sitting at my computer and I want to type a proposal. What do I

ABBOTT: word.

COSTELLO: what word?

ABBOTT: word in office.

COSTELLO: the only word in office is office.

ABBOTT: the word in office for windows.

COSTELLO: which word in office for windows?

ABBOTT: the word you get when you click the blue w.

COSTELLO: I'm going to click your blue w if you don't start with some
straight answers. OK, forget that. Can I watch movies on the Internet?

ABBOTT: yes, you want real one.

COSTELLO: maybe a real one, maybe a cartoon. What I watch is none of
your business. Just tell me what I need!

ABBOTT: real one.

COSTELLO: If it's a long movie I also want to see reels 2, 3 & 4. Can I
watch them?

ABBOTT: of course.

COSTELLO: great, with what?

ABBOTT: real one.

COSTELLO: OK, I'm at my computer and I want to watch a movie. What do I do?

ABBOTT: you click the blue 1.

COSTELLO: I click the blue one what?

ABBOTT: the blue 1.

COSTELLO: is that different from the blue w?

ABBOTT: the blue 1 is Real one and the blue w is word.

COSTELLO: what word?

ABBOTT: the word in office for windows.

COSTELLO: but there are three words in office for windows!

ABBOTT: no, just one. But it's the most popular word in the world.

COSTELLO: it is?

ABBOTT: yes, but to be fair, there aren't many other words left. It
pretty much wiped out all the other words out there.

COSTELLO: and that word is real one?

ABBOTT: real one has nothing to do with word. Real one isn't even part
of office.

COSTELLO: stop! Don't start that again. What about financial bookkeeping
you have anything I can track my money with?

ABBOTT: money.

COSTELLO: that's right. What do you have?

ABBOTT: money.

COSTELLO: I need money to track my money?

ABBOTT: it comes bundled with your computer.

COSTELLO: what's bundled to my computer?

ABBOTT: money.

COSTELLO: money comes with my computer?

ABBOTT: yes. No extra charge.

OSTELLO: I get a bundle of money with my computer? How much?

ABBOTT: one copy.

COSTELLO: isn't it illegal to copy money?

ABBOTT: Microsoft gave us a license to copy money.

COSTELLO: they can give you a license to copy money?

ABBOTT: why not, they own it.
