3  DISCUSSION BOARDS / IT - in Sri Lanka / Microsoft Windows Vista, should I go for it now? on: December 17, 2006, 11:46:00 AM
After five years of starts, stops, executive shuffling, feature rethinks and delays, Windows Vista is finally complete. It will be available from 30th January 2007 itís what youíll get on any new PC. Its programmers, who probably havenít seen their families in months, will have an especially merry Christmas this year.

According to a SoftChoice survey, in fact, only 6 percent of existing corporate PCs have enough muscle to run all of Vistaís goodies. No wonder Microsoft expects that only about 5 percent of PC users will upgrade their existing computers to Vista.

Want to see if your Windows XP-based PC can run Windows Vista? Just download, install, and run the Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor. http://www.microsoft.com/windowsvista/getready/upgradeadvisor/default.mspx

This small software tool will scan your computer and create an easy-to-understand report of all known system, device, and program compatibility issues, and recommend ways to resolve them. Upgrade Advisor can also help you choose the edition of Windows Vista that best fits the way you want to use your computer.

9  DISCUSSION BOARDS / JOKES & FUN / Coloured Sudda! on: June 28, 2006, 01:02:35 PM
A Sri Lankan man walks into a cafe one early morning and noticed that he was the only non-white man there. As he sat down, he noticed a white man behind him.

The white man said, "Colored people are not allowed here. The Sri Lankan man turned around and stood up. He then said:

"Ado Suddha....when I was born, I was BROWN," "When I grew up, I was BROWN," "When I'm sick, I'm BROWN," "When I go in the sun, I'm BROWN," "When I'm cold, I'm BROWN," "When I die, I'll be BROWN." "

But you .....stupid Suddha." "When you're born, you're pink," "When you grow up, you're white," "When you're sick, you're green," "When you go in the sun, you turn red," "When you're cold, you turn blue," "And when you die, you turn purple." "And you have the nerve to call me colored??? Pissa!"

11  DISCUSSION BOARDS / JOKES & FUN / Daddy, how was I born? on: June 5, 2006, 03:26:13 PM
Little boy goes to his father and asks "Daddy, how was I born?"

The father answers:
"Well, son, I guess one day you will need to find out anyway! Your Mom and I first got together in a chat room on Yahoo. Then I set up a date via e-mail with your Mom and we met at a cyber-cafe. We sneaked into a secluded room, where your mother agreed to a download from my hard drive. As soon as I was ready to upload, we discovered that neither one of us had used a firewall, and since it was too late to hit the CTRL+ALT+DEL to skip the process, nine months later a blessed little Pop-Up appeared and said: "You've Got Male!"
