I am trying to see if you can change your signature without changing the ones already posted.

How do you quote the number of posts? All I'm doing is quoting myself, which is never a good idea as it makes one sound redundant.

This is true. But what is the point of sulking if you can't rant? Thanks for the link.

The Road to Endor by E. H. Jones is the book I was looking for. Thanks for taking the trouble to check it out for me, even though I didn't include the author. :(

Escape From Colditz by Patrick Reid. Incidentaly, I'd like to know if The Road to Endor (a book he recommended) is in the public domain. I have never read it, but if it is in the public domain and somebody decides to record it, I would be happy to listen to it. :)

I also hate hp. We have an officejet d145 with dried out print heads, perfectly good ink cartridges that are expired, and various other things in its evil little mind. The site fixyourownprinter was helpful, but not before we bought a new cartridge. The printer has been dispossessed by a dell, and i...
