Did you ever notice Jabba that you're always naking threads up?

Practically every thread is your's.

Just one helpful suggestion, Jabba. Punctuation, capitalisation, grammar, etc, do help. I can mostly only understand your posts if I read them very carefully 3 or 4 times.

I read twice and gave up on understanding the details, but I got the point.

1. The fan on mine is very noisey
2. My sister had left msn messenger log on
3. One of her friend logged on a 11:40 at night
4. He contacted her 5 someone had left the speakers turned all the way up 6 the computer is in my room

Ok so my complaints are:

1. Having to download over night
2. Sisters that forget to log out of msn!!!




That easier to understand?

Err, I'm not terribly up-to-date on conversion rates, but isn't 20 like, not enough to support a family for a month?

No, his dad can only afford the modem for 20 a month. He obviously gets paid more than that.

Last time I checked, 20 pounds was ABOUT $15.

But that was almost two weeks ago.

i'll have to check this out...last time I looked the dollar was pretty strong and there were only like two things higher (German money and the Euro I believe).

UPDATE:
it would appear the dollar has slipped SIGNIFICANTLY in the last week:
20 US Dollar = 13.96785 British Pound
20 British Pound (GBP) = 28.63720 US Dollar (USD)

Since the US's money's value is based on the method "we say it's worth a lot" not sissy things like "gold" or "GNP," I think it's time we go flex our military muscle and drive the dollar up.

i'm not good with finances, does that make the pound stronger than the dollar since you can buy $20 for only 13.96785?

if you think the Euro is higher than the dollar then the american economy has really fallen Euros are more or less worth less!!! and if you have been listening to the news you should know that there are fears of the american economy going into reccession and that would not just effect you guys but it would effect us because after WWII you tied us into your economy

The Euro's up because the DMs up and the dollar's down so currency traders have picked up the euro right now because it WAS worth crap and that drove it up.

our economy slipped, but i haven't heard ANYONE say "recession" yet...

Wrong. One dollar was rarely(never) worth more
than one pound. 20 euro = 15$ - this could be true.

Hey, I just repeat what i read in the Wall Street Journal when it said the dollar had 26% more value than the pound. It had to do with the British beef industry disappearing.

1 US Dollar = ~.7 GBP(Brittish Pounds)

making the dollar kinda crappy now. I think the dollar has always been a bit worse than the pound. However both are work about 100 million pesos or 2 billion chinese yen!

The real value of the dollar compared to the pound perhaps. I know that britain is expensive
compared to other countries.
