Short Songs/Music at funerals Rant

Went to a funeral the other day. Not the most pleasant of things, granted, at the best of times. This was some distant relative who i'd never even met, so not too distressing. It was a family thing....you know how it is.
Anyway, the coffin went into the flames to the Soundtrack to 'Braveheart'. All swirling bagpipes and what not. It was this blokes fav so who am i to argue.
Got me to thinking!! What would i have at my cremation.
All 16 minutes of Hawkwinds PXR5 possibly just to piss people off. How i would laugh from next plane of existense. I would stipulate in my will that everyone would have to stay till it was over.
Thought some more and came up eith these 3 choices (in no particular order)
1. Kenickie - Acetone
2. Kate Bush - This Womans Work
3. Dixie Chicks - God Speed

People might even cry.....and wish they had visited more often.

Short PC Rant!!

Ahh the Personal Computer. What a wonderfull beast...All that power and all just at the touch of of a button. It just makes your heart sing with joy!!...............NOT!!
I love computer games. Really love computer games. I'm not very good at them but thats besides the point. The Personal Computer as a games machine sucks...big time.
I spent a wad of hard earned cash just before Christmas for a brand new one of these. All singing, all dancing 2.6 MHZ, 512 MB, 128MB 3D. You name it has it..all the bells and whistles money could buy.
Does it work ....oh yes. Does it play games ...........oh no!
Firstly theres the VXD errors, Kernell 32 errors, exception OE at module %&!!QMM++ errors to name but a few. So just what do all these things actually mean? Perhaps Bill Gates knows. And how do you fix them? Perhaps Bill Gates knows that too, because i don't.
Recently it has stopped recognising my DVD Rom drive. No reason it just isn't there any more.
Is it frustrating? No its much more than that.
There is however a solution. Its called the Playstation 2. Switch on, insert disc, press start and it works, first time, every time.
