I'm now paying $50/month for my girlfriend and myself to have two droid phones with 300 minutes, "unlimited" data and text messages where as I was previously paying $50/month for 1 phone on Verizon with 400 minutes, unlimited text messages and no data. (That was after a 25% corporate discount!) On top of that she was paying $100 a month with T-Mobile for unlimited everything. I'm saving over $100 (between us two) and getting more useful features that I use.

I don't know if gif/jpeg rules are the same. But you can upload a GIF as a JPEG, and it will still render as a GIF, even though the file is itself JPEG. In fact, even some free image hosting sites exploit this "vulnerability". If you upload a GIF to tinypic, it will rename the file and place the
Firefox and IE seem to have no problem deciphering this so I doubt it is something that the browsers specifically disallow.
That's bullshit. It's luck. (And increasingly these days, the luck of having been born into the correct socioeconomic stratum.) The best we can do is to pursue opportunities to the utmost when they do appear and make the most of the luck we get in life.
Your statement reminded me of one of my favorite quotes.
I'm a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work, the more I have of it. -- Thomas Jefferson
That was Hard...
And to think, I own this game and it is collecting dust somewhere. Perhaps I should list it on ebay and retire to some faraway country.
