Drooler, I'm not an expert on Chrome, since I just bought my first Chromebook a few days ago, and I am still learning how to use it.
But if you have a lot of Microsoft office documents that you use, you can use Microsoft Office Web Apps, for compability with your existing office documents. It's free for individuals, but not for businesses.
Otherwise, if you have no previous Microsoft office documents that you have to deal with, you can use the other free apps for Chrome.
Since Microsoft is giving the Microsoft Office Web Apps away for free, to hold onto their customer base (even those that are using Chrome), I would guess that there shouldn't be a lot of problems with using your older Microsoft Office documents with a Chromebook.
That's only a guess. Because personal experinence is the deal breaker.
I couldn't stand Win 8.1, because Win 7 was so much easier to use (after migrating from Win XP, which I really liked).
But some people are technically mobile, and maybe they even appreciate the new Win 8 OS.
But so far, at least, I really like the Chromebook. And it's so fucking cheap. And fast. And you don't have to worry about viruses, and software updates, etc. The software updates automatically, when you're connected to the web. But my desktop Win 7 has to shut down for updates, and then restart, and I'm always running virus scans, and the Chromebook just seems to be so much easier to use and problem free. At least so far.
I don't like the keyboard on the Chromebook, or the touchpad, so I added a wireless keyboard and mouse to the Chromebook.
That was easy to do, and only cost $40 for the Logitech Wireless Wave Combo Mk550 With Keyboard and Laser Mouse from Amazon.
So I'm good to go, as I learn to use the Chromebook.
I got a chromebook yesterday. The price was $250.
That was with a 32 GB SSD.
If I had gotten it with a 16 GB SSD, the price would have been $200.
The chromebook has a mousepad, and a keyboard.
Not as nice as my desktop, but for $250, what do you expect.
This is an amazing PC.
It turns on in less than 10 seconds.
Shuts off in less than 5 seconds.
Don't have to worry about viruses, updates, whatever.
Will have to learn to use it.
But this is the PC for the next few years.
Cheap, easy to use.
I set up the chromebook in 10 minutes or less.
So much simpler than a regular desktop or notebook.
Don't have to worry about Microsoft software, updates, etc.
Tiny little thing.
Weighs less than 3 pounds.
A desktop or notebook can be useful, but for the price, convenience, ease of use, the chromebook is wonderful.
PS: I bought an HP notebook a few weeks back, with Win 8.1, for about $1,000.
Couldn't stand Win 8.1.
Finally returned the notebook.
I am so much happier with the chromebook.
Not only it so much less expensive, but it's also so much easier to use, and faster to use. Turns on in less than 10 seconds, turns off in less than 5-7 seconds.
If the notebook I bought had Windows 7, I would have kept it. But I couldn't stand Windows 8.1.
I did not "literally" mean to ask "advertise a fate worse than death". I just meant that there used to be an expression "a fate worse than death", and what did the expression mean.
So my meaning was definitely not clear, based on the replies given.
And when I gave the poll choices, I was trying to inject a bit of humor or oblique thought in the choices, because the common historical meaning was a woman who had been violated, but in today's culture, it could be interpreted as any crime or transgression against a person that was terrible.
jberryl69, in some of my reviews I tend to ramble, but your comment goes all over the place.
I read Tarzan when I was an early teen, and I don't remember Jane being raped. And I'm sure (because ERB was writing in a different climate than the current one) that Jane was utterly pure when she married Tarzan. Tarzan might have kissed her before marriage, but even though they were both living together in the jungle before they were married, there was absolutely no hanky-panky going on. Not like modern times.
Your comment reminds me that I enjoyed Tarzan and also John Carter of Mars when I was much younger. I will try to read some of them again, to see if I can still find pleasure in reading them today, or if my tastes (and ideas) have changed too much.
There aren't a lot of sites that offer public preview thumbnails of their galleries.
I am more interested in whether a site offers a complete listing of their models, with a nice thumbnail to show what they look that.
I like to use the slideshow that many sites offer, to view the galleries, to see what the photos look like, before I decide whether to download the set or not.
Because at too many sites, when I look at the thumbnails of the individual photos, the thumbnails are too small to see what the photos looks like.
Even at Metart, which is still primarily a photo site (even though a few of their newer videos are almost interesting), I can barely make out what the model looks like from the thumbnail.
Years ago, the model thumbnails seemed larger. Maybe it's my eyes, but the thumbnails today are just too small at Metart to clearly see what the model (or her individual thumbnail photos) looks like.
You can increase the image size, but that means part of the page is offscreen, and then you have to return to normal size or fiddle with the mouse if you view different pages. Normal size means less fiddling.
If there are a very few, and they offer a nice discount, then, ok, I don't mind too much. But there are some sites where it's hard to tell the ads from the site contents, and the pages get so cluttered, it's hard to navigate.
I know sites need to make money. But I already paid my membership fee, so I don't want to have to slog through a bunch of ads I don't need to see.
My guess is that most women haven't heard of the sexual revolution, where men and women are supposed to be equal. Or maybe it's because men are still stuck in the cave-man era, where only men are interested in porn.
I would think, though, that glamcore/heartcore porn would make more women interested in porn, if they come across it.
I tried a pop-blocker, and was happy at first. But then it seemed to mess up the computer somehow. I don't remember the details, but my browser (Firefox) started developing problems. So I deleted the pop-up program from my PC.
I don't know whether the photo set you are referring to is still at Metart, or whether it was deleted.
If you do a search for a model named Claire at Metart, the search returns "There is no model named Claire."
Possibly she is listed under another name.
If you look at the photo sets of the photographer named "Peter Dominic", it does show there are 7 sets by him, but none of those sets have a posting date of June 14, 2003, and none of the sets have the title "Her Best Friend".
Trying to search for photo sets in the archives section (2004 and earlier) is not as simple as checking sets posted from 2005 and later.
My guess is that this set was probably at the site at one time, but was subsequently deleted, for one reason or another.
I have a hard time trying to tell the age of a model, in general. And there are some models that, for years, look far younger than their actual age.
But I have deleted vids and pics where I thought the model did look too young. Not recently. But when I had a newsgroup subscription, you could download lots of material, and who knew where most of it came from, and there was very little way of knowing who some of the models were.
With pay porn sites, at least you have the assurance that they are checking on the age of the models for you.
