    How to write a paper in college/university:

    1. Sit in a straight, comfortable chair in a well lit place in front of your computer.
    2. Log onto MSN and ICQ (be sure to go on away!). Check your mail.
    3. Read over the assignment carefully, to make certain you understand it.
    4. Walk down to the vending machines and buy some chocolate to help you concentrate.
    5. Check your email.
    6. Call up a friend and ask if he/she wants to go to the cafe and grab a hot chocolate. Just to get settled down and ready to work.
    7. When you get back to your room, sit in a straight,
    comfortable chair in a clean, well lit place.
    7a. If your room is not clean, take out the garbage and vacuum first.
    8. Read over the assignment again to make absolutely certain you understand it.
    9. Check your email.
    10. You know, you haven't written to that kid you met at camp since fourth grade. You'd better write that letter now and get it out of the way so you can concentrate.
    11. Look at your teeth in the bathroom mirror.
    12. Grab some mp3z off of kazaa.
    13. Check your email.
    ANY OF THIS SOUND FAMILIAR YET?!
    14. MSN chat with one of your friends about the future (ie summer plans).
    15. Check your email.
    16. Listen to your new mp3z and download some more.
    17. Phone your friend on the other floor and ask if she's started writing yet. Exchange derogatory remarks about your lecturer, the course, the college, the world at large.
    18. Walk to the store and buy a pack of gum. You've probably run out.
    19. While you've got the gum you may as well buy a magazine and read it.
    20. Check your email.
    21. Check the newspaper listings to make sure you aren't missing something truly worthwhile on TV.
    22. Play some solitare.
    23. Check out bored.com.
    24. Wash your hands.
    25. Call up a friend to see how much they have done, probably haven't started either.
    26. Look through your housemate's book of pictures from home. Ask who everyone is.
    27. Sit down and do some serious thinking about your plans for the future.
    28. Check to see if bored.com has been updated yet.
    29. Check your email and listen to your new mp3z
    30. You should be rebooting by now, assuming that windows is crashing on schedule.
    31. Read over the assignment one more time, just for heck of it.
    32. Scoot your chair across the room to the window and watch the sunrise.
    33. Lie face down on the floor and moan.
    34. Punch the wall and break something.
    35. Check your email.
    36. Mumble obscenties.
    37. 5am - start hacking on the paper without stopping.
    6am -paper is finished.
    38. Complain to everyone that you didn't get any sleep because
    had to write that stupid paper.
    39. Go to class, hand in paper, and leave right away so you can take a nap

    :D yes, goes closely in hand with that well-known disease called RATS

    Revision Avoidance Technique Syndrome

    the only time in your life when having re-arranged your CDs by alphabetical order, you decide that genre is a more appropriate method of organisation. :laugh:

    Are you sick of poor quality 128k mp3's that sound inferior to regular CD's you buy in the store? Do you long for the exact sound of a CD with absolutly no quality loss, and at practically half the size of a normal CD? CD's get scratched all the time, and FLAC is great for archiving all those good copies of your classic rock, and backing them up to save forever. FLAC unlike mp3, or ogg vorbis is what is called a lossless format. This means that no quality whatsoever is lost from the origianl disk. Lossy formats such as ogg vorbis, wmv, and moreover mp3 are usually flat sounding, and full of hissing and dullness because they discard and literally throw out important information that controls how good the CD will sound. Using FLAC will ensure the crystal-clear clarity that you can expect from a freshly opened CD. Instead of flimsy CD cases that snap and CD's that scratch easily, and are inevitably summoned to a poor scratched up death; FLAC files can be stored in a tough metal box known as your Hard Disk. FLAC putting life back into digital audio. If you own legit copies of CD's and seek for them pre-FLAC'd for all your digital listening needs please shoot me a PM for more information.
