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

HAHAHA! Those are grrrrrrreat! If only they were real..

Oh well. Also, the windoze one so so obviously British made. If it were more universal I would buy it more.

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.

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