I've wanted a road bike for a while, so when the paycheck arrived today, I bought one. Pic inside.

Print Story How to drown yourself in a hotel pool.

I'm having my shoulders massaged by a beautiful woman. An amalgam of every girl I ever fancied is working the knots out of my back and shoulders, and I'm not enjoying it. I'm not enjoying it, and I can't work out why. There's something vaguely annoying, nagging at the corners of my mind. Suddenly it dawns on me "Holy shit! I'm breathing water!". I stand up and haul my head out of the water, taking one long painful breath. Acting of its own accord, my body hauls itself out of the pool as I get my bearings, and try to work out what's going on. "Was I asleep? Was I dreaming that woman?" It's not until I've been in the changing room getting my head together for 5 minutes that I remember anything clearly, and realise the utter stupidity of what I just did.

So, the pr0n site redirector mentioned in my last diary turned out to be a system32.dll replacement. Thanks go especially to Cloaked User and alarmist, and also to webwench, codemonkey_uk, CrocoStimpy, yankeehack and dmg. Inside, the solution...

Print Story Why is everyone so surprised?
By Gully Foyle (Thu May 06, 2004 at 10:14:45 PM EST) (all tags)
I don't understand why everyone is so shocked that US and British soldiers were torturing and humiliating their prisoners.

This is not an anti-US/UK diary...
