Maybe you're having problems with Ajax, the program that runs the chat.

It's more than that.I put an add in craigslist for a room for rent and I'm getting emails from Yahoo telling me someone tryed to open my account from a mobile device in Taipei! I've had alot of very cute and busy girls respond.They all want my ID so daddy can cut me a check.So I changed the add to my phone # and I get these same emails telling me they are very sorry but they can't get reception where they are on location modeling or studying a species where there is no reception & on & on.I deleted all those.But I still am having issues with mail and functions.I have a good friend coming by to check it out next week.I still haven't rented the freakin' room either! (well I could of,but I'm not into god 24/7) It's all to much! :roll:

I placed an ad for a lift chair on craigslist that my father in law had used. Some responses I got:

"I am satisfied with the description and condition of the item pasted on the Ad, would have asked to call you but i have a problem talking on phone because I'm hearing impaired. I will be buying from you so please kindly withdraw the advert. Please be informed that I will be paying with a certified check from my Bank as I just traveled to Dubai, UAE on a job. Let me know if its okay with you."

"Thanks for the reply to my question about it been for sale,i will want you to get back to me with some pictures cos am buying it as a surprise gift,although i am presently not within reach(on work basis) but iwill arrange for it to be picked up by a pick up agent which will be coming for the pickup once the payment is clears, so i don't think i will be able to come see it myself and due to security protocol of my job phone conversation is limited but i will appreciate you send me close up pictures any time when you are less busy as for me to have a better look here and make my decision about buying it.i will also want to inform you that i will be making the payment of it via PayPal which i believe is safe and secured and also the PayPal charges is on me which i will also pay for, so all i need from you now is for you to get back to me with your PayPal email address for me to make the payment once you have gotten back to me with the details about it and also with the pictures as well and please answer this question


Are you the first owner of it?
Why are you selling it?
When have you been using it?"


Notice they never refer to the item in question as a chair. I strung one along for quite awhile before I finally told them they were idiots.

Variations on a basic theme.Change a word here and there and you got the same ones I got! They always want you to drop your add too.I guess that's how they keep score.If your add's taken down,they think they got a live one!
Now 1/2 of this page looks like my "in" box! (insert blood curdling scream here) I can't get away from them! Help me Mr.Wizard! :evil:

It's available now. I'm listening to it right now. It doesn't start right away, so don't get fooled. It starts about 9:30 into it. BBC Proms #25
Nice! 8) :D
