My name is Minh, and I haven't posted here very often, but when I was watching the BOL video feed the other day, someone gave me an idea of creating

So, I did. I'll try to collect the various Molly rants and stick them up there. Check it out, if you enjoy the rants as much as I do.

See y'all.

CNET should hire you

CNET should hire you to re-do all their photos. All the photos of CNET employees are horribly resized and filtered badly making them look ugly.

What I can do is expose the short MP3 URL, and then people can integrate it into the Wiki.

...Buzz Out Loud, for the mention in the podcast. I'm now on it twice. Watch out Alex in Miami.

The thing about Chris Parker, well, ummm... Chris had this serenity in that shot that's universally admirable... not that I endorse his means.

But, I will tweak that picture a little for sure to make it more clear!

Thanks again, y'all!

Do you have "MollyRants" trademarked?
by rayray8822 / April 16, 2008 3:42 AM PDT
In reply to: Thank You So Much...

I noticed the little "?" sign right after the word "MollyRant" on your page.

Do you really have the term "mollyrant" trademarked? If so, that's hilariously ironic. "Culture of Ownership!!!" Happy

If not, and you're just being a smart-***, then bravo!

Much love to my homies,


p.s. Minh, are you a fellow Southerner? (referring to your use of the Southernism "y'all.")

I don't think I have the $$$ to play in the (tm) field...

And yes, I in Southern Ohio, and we hear Kentuckians say "y'all" all the time... And I think it's cool Happy

How to trademark
by PortVista-190953130350169 / April 16, 2008 5:47 AM PDT
In reply to: (tm)

It costs about $400, but you can only register a tm if it's used to conduct business. I believe it's illegal to use the tm or r if you don't have it trademarked?

little known fact (more off-topic discussion)
by rayray8822 / April 16, 2008 6:07 AM PDT
In reply to: (tm)

Kentucky's elected government sided with the Union during the War of Northern Aggression:

So, technically, Kentuckians aren't "Southerners."

Not that I'm a "South-Will-Rise-Again" rebel-flag-waving lunatic or anything . . . I'm just sayin'.


Much love to my homies,

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
