The Hugh Jampton Experience
Yes, live from the Ramada Ballroom Scunthorpe it'ssssssss the Huuuuugh Jaaaaampton Experience
So RISC World has staggered into Volume 4, and it only seems like a couple of months ago that we were still in Volume 3! Still enough of that, let's now move onto the sorry state of the caption competition.
Last issues caption competition
As you may well remember we ran a piccy of Aaron last issue and asked for your captions. Well we didn't get any. Actually thats not quite true, we might have had some but someone (Who? Me - ED) didn't set up my RISC World e-mail address so no one could get through. However I have now got Dave Holden to set up my e-mail address so you can now e-mail me using this link..
This issues caption competition
Well here it is, can you think of an amusing caption for this little gem?
As usual send your entries to me and we may even be able to come up with s small prize for the winner.
Hugh's Newsgroup Prima Donna guidelines
I have been doing quite a bit of lurking recently, and the good news is that the charges have been dropped. However I have also been lurking on newsgroups and doing a highly scientific study of newsgroup prima donnas. Why? Well to provide a service to RISC World readers of course. In case you are not aware a newsgroup Prima Donna is someone who has voluntarily elected themselves to be a moderator on an unmoderated newsgroup. It's a dirty job, but someone hasn't got to do it. These people exist all over usenet, they slave away tirelessly helping scare away new users, insulting existing ones and stressing their own importance without adding any value. So how do you identify a Prima Donna? Well luckily uncle Hugh is here to help with his simple guide. Read any computer newsgroup for a few weeks to identify the common posters then try identifying the Prima Donnas using these simple tests.
Simple guidelines to spotting a Prima Donna. For each Yes score 1 point, for each no score 0 points.
So do you know anyone who fits this criteria? If so why not send the results of this test to me here as usual there is no prize, expect perhaps the fame of having your name printed in RISC World.
Anyway lets move on to some of the funny photos that have landed in the mailbox that is actually working.
Hidden display properties in Windows
And following on from our usual toilet humour.
And now a little something for the lady computer user.
And if she doesn't find that funny she certainly won't find this funny either.
And finally just what you have always suspected...
That's all from me for this issue, remember stay lucky, keep 'em peeled, don't have nightmares, goodnight.
