How do you pronounce Namie?

15 September 2007 - 06:32 PM

Is it pronounced Namee or Nam-ee-eh? Or something else?
I don't have sound so links to a soundbyte are useless~ :[

I got a computer virus :[

03 September 2007 - 02:40 PM

So, I was trying to get on this forum, and the URL led me to a page that said I needed to download a component in order to view the webpage. I've been doing a lot of ad-blocking and removing programs and stuff to clean up my computer so I thought I might have blocked something on accident, so I downloaded it (against my better judgement)... and it loaded a virus called "zun" onto my computer.

Internet Explorer (which I never use) keeps popping up, and when I try to open my Task Manager to close all the windows, it says it's been disabled. So, I'm pretty sure it created an administrator account... This is really only 'my' computer and we don't have many anti-virus programs because I'm getting a new one soon and I'm lazy and blah, so now I'm paying for it because I have no idea how to get rid of this virus.

I'm running a anti-SpyWare program right now but I don't think it will help. I also tried to Google the "zun virus" and I didn't find anything that told how to get rid of it...

So if anyone has some tips or anything, please help me out. :[ And would it be safe to turn off my computer or do you think it would like, kill everything while it was off? :/ Thank you!

Edits~ It's a Trojan, so... :[ I need a Trojan remover? I'm really clueless about anti-virus software, but I need something free, lol. : / Thanks.

This occurred a few days ago, but I haven't seen any posts on it...
For those who don't know, Owen Wilson is a popular American actor, usually seen in comedies. Some of his more well-known movies are The Wedding Crashers, You, Me and Dupree and Zoolander.

Owen Wilson Attempts Suicide, Hospitalized
Sun, 26 August 2007
Owen Wilson attempted suicide and was hospitalized, reports The National Enquirer and Star magazine.

“He sliced his left wrists and took an indeterminate amount of pills,” the rags reported. “He was discovered by a family member who summoned help. His wrist was sutured and bandaged at the hospital.”

This all went down around noon at Owen’s house on Sunday.

Owen was stabilized at St. John’s hospital in Santa Monica, Calif.

A sad, sad day. Our prayers go out to Owen and his family and friends!

Luke Wilson Visits Brother Owen

Luke Wilson joins friends and family to be at older brother Owen’s side at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in West Hollywood on Monday. Also pictured visiting the hospital: actor pal Woody Harrelson.

It was recently confirmed that Owen did, in fact, attempt suicide and he has been depressed for the last few months. But it’s not over a broken relationship, reports state.

Extra reports, “The Calls For Service report from the Santa Monica Police Department, which lists the reason for the 911 call from Owen Wilson’s house as an “attempted suicide.” The call was received on Sunday, August 26 at 12:08:16pm. The incident was ‘cleared’ almost five hours later at 5:07:16pm.”

Owen recently released this statement via his rep:”I respectfully ask that the media allow me to receive care and heal in private during this difficult time.”

Owen Wilson is one of my absolute favorite actors, so this news really hit me hard...
Please no bashing - this isn't a place to vent about your opinion on suicide or his acting abilities or looks or anything like that. That is so disrespectful and completely unnecessary.
I wish the best for Owen and his family... it's been such a shock and I hope he gets help and recovers.

Is there a way to block Macromedia images?

24 August 2007 - 09:20 PM

I was wondering if there was a way to block Macromedia Flash images from automatically appearing. There are a lot of banners that use Macromedia Flash and they make my computer go really slow and make this weird noise. I know there is a way to block images from certain sites, so it'll ask you if it can load the images beforehand... is it possible to do that for those banners? I've tried to block images from the sites they lead to but they're different. They're really annoying. :thumbsup: Please help!

Thanks~

Do you get along with your parents?

18 August 2007 - 10:43 AM

Just curious! ^^

Personally, I get along really well with both of my parents. I get along slightly better with my mom, just because she's a woman and I can talk to her more, but she yells at me more about school and stuff. LOL. But I enjoy being around both of them.

Sorry if this excludes anyone, like if you're living with other relatives or if you have step-parents. Just choose the equivalents, I guess!
