I prefer no toppings. Maybe bacon and cheese but that's pretty much it. :kona:

Mmm, depends on the sandwich for me.  Usually pretty plain is good, but mustard, ketchup, barbeque sauce, and mayo are not at all out of the question.  Also, anything that's vegetable-like, throw it on there.

When I go to subway I get lettuce, onions, bell peppers, olives, pickles, and banana peppers.  And salt/pepper, oil/vinegar, sweet onion sauce, pepper jack cheese, and chicken.  Toasted.  With sweet onion sauce on top.

Man... I'm hungry.

Edit - On topic rant.
When I go to subway and I tell them I want onionS, I expect onionS, not 3 strands of a single torus of AN onion slice.  Next time I'm going to tell them I want the freaking sandwich to look like the picture or else I'm walking out.

I'd be happy to take your onion ration, not so fond of many.

I'm fond of lots and lots of all my veggies, and they always skimp.  Most of the time, it's a veggie delite

*Not really a rant but*

Life seems to be going nowhere for now, sleeping through the day is getting quite unfulfiling but I am thinking to turn it all around next monday by going to go get my learners permit and hopefully soon thereafter get my drivers license. So get ready to hear a lot of rants about that, since florida drivers are horrible.

For a real rant, these Bing commercials are getting really annoying... And I really don't think I should go any further because I think everyone with a brain can realise google is perfectly fine if you know how to use it, and that dumbing down computers isn't a good thing to do, make them tough and keep them that way. Let people use their brains once and a while!  X(

Firefox 3.5 is pissing me off something righteous, it's eating up my memory and causing my computer to grind to a halt. I've been using FF for a long time but this is a serious screw up by Mozilla, I've installed an addon which should control it but the point is I shouldn't have too. If it keeps up I'm switching back to FF2.

FF 3.6 Alpha was released not long ago (maybe within the last few days?), give that a try and see if it helps.

It's fixed and I'm not gonna blow up too badly, after all it's the nature of the beast that sometimes a major bug like that is gonna come up and it will take time to fix.

Today when I tried to login to Windows it said that it couldn't log me in because the files were already in use and then shunted me off to a non administrator account. This was really freaky, but it also led me to a question. I have two hard drives in my computer C: and E:, C:is the one with the OS installed E: just has the various things I've downloaded/put on the computer and I've used it as an install directory. If C: crashes will I lose the data on E:?

No, you won't lose E's data if C crashes.  If that was the case I'd  be the most angry person in the world.

I have 1.8Tb of data storage across three drives (1Tb, 500gb, 320gb), and my C drive accounts for a small 60gb partition of my 500gb drive.  I can reformat C as much as I want and none of the other drives will lose data.  Now, if my C drive's hardware itself crashes and dies, then yes, I'll lose my C and F drives because the hard drive itself has two partitions, 60gb and 440gb, 60gb for my OS and system programs, 440gb for storage and other stuff.  My D drive gets all my games and non-system programs, my E drive contains all my arcade download data like rips and such, and my J drive has all of my anime/images (that's the 1Tb external that has 20gb left, :V)

Tonight I while brushing my teeth I noticed a dark brown spot on my upper front tooth near the gumline. I figured it was a popcorn kernel as I'd just finished off a bowl and it all that it needed was a good flossing. So afterwards I looked more carefully and touched it, upon inspection it turns out to be a chip in the tooth that for some reason has a dark brown inside to it. This makes me angry as I now permanently look like an idiot who doesn't know how to brush his teeth.

Yeah, I had that same sort of thing happen after I had braces for a while.  Front side lower right canine.  The person I talked to said it wasn't a cavity, just the way it grew in.  Hope for your sake it's the same thing.  The dentist will probably be able to either fill or whiten it.

Does it hurt or is it just odd-looking? The latter should be less of a big deal and more fixable.

It doesn't hurt, it's just a cosmetic thing, it looks like I have something caught in my teeth.

Regardless of if it's a cosmetic thing now, it once your enamel has chipped it becomes significantly wearer there because the smoothness has been removed.  Now thure are smaller cracks and crevices and rougher textures that can progress into cavities or other problems, especially if it's near the gum s like that.

Most gum diseases center around the first 3mm of gums around the teeth, called "pits".  That's where the bacteria harbors itself under the gums between the flesh and tooth, and causes problems like gingivitis, so if this chip is close or like, at the gums, it could be a potential issue.

Wow, that's really informative sock, but yes I will get to the dentist as soon as I can but I currently don't have one and finding a good one that's covered by insurance is a difficult process.

No, I just noticed it a couple of days ago but it's in the front near the space between the two front teeth. No idea how it happened but it did so I'll just have to wait and see, try and keep it clean.

Less of a rant and more of a query, I usually do badly with planners because I forget things. To remedy this I've taken to writing on my calendar right next to my monitor so I'll have a constant reminder. This is inefficient and so I'm looking to find a way to have google calendar as a sort of widget, something that's either always visible or at least quickly accessible and prominent. Using the google calendar will allow me to schedule and if I can find a way to make it always visible then I wouldn't forget as I spend most of my time goofing off on the internet, a calendar constantly staring me in the face would be a good stern reminder.

Isn't there the google desktop thing which you can install and it has a sidebar for your gadgets?  The other thing you can do is use something like MS Outlook (meh) and put all your appointments in there, and have it remind you an hour or 15 minutes before.

The desktop is a good idea except that my desktop is in a word Lovecraftian there are so many icons on the desktop there is literally no room for anything else.

Sounds like you, like me, have an organizational "problem" more than a schedule "problem".  Only way to fix that is to make everything have a place, and make it work in that way to be clean and pretty.  Once you get to that point, it's a little less daunting to get the scheduling bit working well.

If you're looking for something to keep you on schedule, though, you could use the calendar on your cell phone, as limited as it is.

It's an organizational problem at heart, it's time management. I have a not uncommon problem of going "oh I have a couple weeks to finish that" then I forget and then I'm like "oh crap that's due in a couple days". I'm just trying to find something that will help me keep my affairs in order.
