Child proof bottles that are also adult proof.

I'm a member of Team SETI.USA. I made a very modest donation the other day and I really shouldn't have done that but I feel an obligation to sponsor my team, even if it wasn't much.

Now I put my Seti@home screensaver on and, lo and behold, SETI.USA has been removed. I tried to find my team profile and I'm listed as not belonging to any team.

I'm really pissed and, to boot, I run my BOINC MANAGER 24 hours a day and team SETI.USA is not getting any of my credits now. I don't know how to fix this and, frankly, I'm becoming a little disillusioned. NASA can send men to the moon and do all kinds of other magic in space now but a simple message board, communities and getting an avatar attached to a profile (here on Earth) is almost impossible for me and, I'll bet, for other members who are not particularly computer saavy.

A little annoyance and rant.

Try joining the team again...Just do what you did to join before and see what happens...You may have been the victim of some strange glitch.

This happened this morning:

People who pull into the second row in the fuel station, fill up their car and attempt to drive off without observing that there is another car (mine) in the first row (two feet ahead) still refuelling.

Despite this sounding like a minor accident my car was actually a write-off. (Members who frequent TFFE forum may understand why!) Now i've got to find another bumper and boot lid out of my own money!
Or maybe just leave the dent on the pretence it adds character.
Life on earth is the global equivalent of not storing things in the fridge.

People who are pulling onto the street you're driving down and they wait until the last second and then pull out in front of you. Then they drive 15 MPH under the speed limit while you're bearing down on the arse end of their car.

This happened to me yesterday.... )-:<
