    Damn that's funny! But there must be a bug; when I launch IE, the preferences change to "Spinning beachball every 2 minutes"

    That paper clip option is a good one :D

    That's good. But did you know the system stats add up to 105.1%?

    Someone not know how to add, or am I missing something?

    i took that to be % of total of each individual task. like when you use a process priority changer in osx and you can drag the widget from 0 to 100.

    But why would you have 'Actual User Processes' at 22.8%, to me that would be 100%.

    I think its supposed to add up to 100%.

    the beachball comes from when it was 4 triangular-ish shapes in the shape of a ball: alternating black and white.

    the best secret preference was the "allow me to type while auto-save is in progress" or something

    gry

    Research from the Oxford English Dictionary, Simon & Schuster's Webster's New World Dictionary, and the G.C. Merriam Company gives us this list (of other words that end in gry):

    aggry: A glass bead found buried in the ground in Africa. A word of unknown origin. Seemingly always used attributively, as in aggry beads.

    braggry: A variant form of braggery.

    conyngry: An obsolete dialectal variant of conyger, itself an obsolete term meaning 'rabbit warren'.

    gry: The smallest unit in Locke's proposed decimal system of linear measurement, being the tenth of a line, the hundredth of an inch, and the thousandth of a ('philosophical') foot. Also the grunt of a pig, an insignificant trifle, or a verb meaning to roar.

    iggry: Egyptian colloquial Arabic pronunciation of ijri: 'Hurry up!', brought back after the First World War by members of British and Australian forces who had fought in Egypt.

    mawgry: from Old French: being regarded with displeasure.

    meagry: Having a meager appearance.

    nangry: A variant form of angry.

    podagry: Dodder, or the condition of a plant infested with it.

    puggry: A variant form of puggree, a light scarf wound around a hat or helmet to protect the head from the sun.

    From:

    http://www.uselessknowledge.com/trivia/gry.shtml

    There is no third common word that ends in gry...it is an old riddle.
