Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  7. That's an excellent story, apart from the 'poof' word, which sort of makes it derogatory.

    Still, it made me laugh out loud.

    Have you any other interesting tales to tell?
  8. By gum, the nights must fly by round at your gaff. Talking of viruses, have you got some sort of antivirus program installed?
  9. I did have Norton on even though my ex told me a long time ago that it was worthless. It came with the lappie so I figured I'd use it since I had it. Now, Norton has expired and I hadn't planned on buying it so I uninstalled the internet security bit. (the part that was expired) Am still using Norton Utilities for registry cleaning and that sort. I'm quite daft to what all it actually does but I noticed that it works better when I run the thing.
    Since Norton has expired, I've tried two different things. (suggestions from friends) AVG and Spybot. Spybot, just from what I've noticed, doesn't seem to make a difference either way. AVG, on the other hand, used to work quite well a few years back when I used it but now it doesn't seem to catch much of anything. Is my computer that clean or is AVG rubbish now? Haven't asked around enough to know what's good these days.
  10. By 'eck, yours is an exciting life. By contrast, I was giving a lesson on "Using Standard Formats For Reporting" to some tem leaders in Laos last month when I had to take an urgent call. After 45 seconds or so, I returned to the class room, to find the class avidly watching a porno movie instead of the Power Point presentation I had been showing.

    Moral of the story: Don't leave short cuts to pr0n files on yer desk top!
  11. Yeah, I figured that once I read the bit about 'refreshing' the desktop. One of those daft moments:/
  12. It's about half past three here and I am dead tired but that made me laugh:p
  13. Made me smile too as one of the team leaders is female and she was just as interested as the others.
