Ah, pour soul. Have you also become a victim of capitalist society? :rolleyes: What was it? The $5.000.000 Gucci mousepad? Or the $10.000.000 Armani screenwipe?

Maybe you're interested in making a movie. www.savedukestreetthemovie.com should be a blockbuster hit.

But seriously, my signature says it all ...

:D :D :cool:

Nah, all I need is enough money for a new Apple Power4 equiped machine that'll be out next year. I figure if I start now I should be able to get enough, right?

D :D

Ha ha haaa!
If anyone should learn anything from this, it's DON'T MAX OUT SIX CREDIT CARDS. No matter how well off you think you are. :rolleyes:

That's just wrong.

Course, I could just be jealous. Nobody ever sent me free money. I've been in tough spots before, but you wouldn't see me begging like this. This is almost as bad as when MOSR begged for a new video card, only to destroy it by overclocking it. And then begged for another one.

Some people.

I don't know who's worse - her for begging, or all of those people for giving her money.

On the plus side, some of the money she made was from auctioning off all of her expensive stuff.

Yes, she did auction off some of the pricier items, but people from around the world still sent her money.....that is something that I find tough to understand. Do you just get on line one day a say to yourself 'I'm going to give away my money today' and especially someone who is so foolish as to get into that sort of debt problem.
