I was going to say that but I thought what he put was what she said.

'Harlot' ('Ha-RE-Lot').
Sorry panda; not exactly
('hahr-luht)
or
('har-let')

Yeah, those were the mistake pronunciations. I'm guessing he'd assume (like I did) that people here would know it's "Looger" and "har-lut".

tl;dr. But with all those shiny symbols and numbers it's probably awsome.

A gripe that has always been with me is people that message me on msn/aim right when I sign on. It initially started when my computer had a virus and took forever too do anything, and if the loading proccess was inturrupted you would have too restart the program, so needless too say one kid in particular kept messaging me right when the msn sign showed my online, and I mean he was like waiting right there just too message me. This happened about 5 times before I realized I could set my status too appear offline before even signing on, I must say it was a relief. Although even without the Virus it still bugs me too this day.

Durgon you could always set it so it will not come up when you start you computer by going into msconfig.

Hah, MSN Messenger gripes...
I hate it when random people add me and then never tell me who they are. Then I have to go through the always awkward part when I ask them who they are. Any sort of introduction would be fab, but I never get them.
The other thing I hate about that is when they add me and are either always on but never talk to me, or never on at all.
Had two or three people who said "hi" and were never seen again. Ever. I had nothing to do with that.

I used to review and comment on newgrounds a bit. Also played Neopets ages ago (yeah, yeah.), and dabbled in the whole RPG Maker 95/2000/etc scene. I got my fair share of morons.

You know how freaky it was for me when a 10 year old girl from Neopets started chatting me up and I'd (several) swear words in my screen name?

That makes a bit more sense then.

The "D' key fell off my laptop last night. I guess it means a trip to Best Buy to get a new keyboard which isn't a bad thing, I've worn most of the letters off, I just don't want to be without it, I have everything on this laptop.

*grumble*

In memory of the key. Just remember all that it has typed.

You would think that E would be the first to go, because it's the most used in the English language.

Two years of typing wore the letters off. I'm half missing some of the others.
