"...no longer involves shelling out for potentially-crappy albums or (God forbid) talking to people." hehe, that's true!  Good list MaxPC!

Thanksgiving was well over a month ago. 

Don't worry, I'm sure you'll get the date right some year.  Keep trying your hardest.

don't celebrate what folks today call Thanksgiving, whether in Canada or US. And I don't think Blacks would have much to celebrate either if you go by the origins of this holiday.

Thanksgiving is always in November. Unless your in a parallel universe and in your universe Spock is evil and has a goatee.

Thanksgiving is held on the second Monday of October, not the fourth Thursday of November.  LRN2READ a calander buddy.

Thanksgiving is held when an American decides to hold it, motherfucker. Take your calender and shove it up your ass.

Yeah well I crossed the border illegally last night, just to leave you guys a nice steamy roast.  Thanksgiving is when a Canadian decides it is mofo, and I say it's time to give me thanks.

Are we going to have to march North and burn Ottawa to the ground again? Becareful we'll do it. Bush still has about 60days in office.

 

BTW is there a Black Friday up in Canada after the Canadian Thanksgiving?

is not to be underestimated. He's an American. The question is, will he have an aircraft carrier named after him?

Not every president has had an aircraft carrier named after them.   Plus, some of the carriers are not named after presidents. Typically you want a carrier named after a president or someone who has done something good for the country/military/navy.  (I do not expect Clinton to get one, ever!)  An aircraft carrier has 4.5 acres of sovereign US Territory.  It is a large part of the president’s foreign policy. (Park an aircraft carrier and its associated airwing off the coast of a country and when it arrives, the president makes a polite phone call to that country's leader and informs that leader that there is an aircraft carrier nearby, in case they did not know, and asks him what his problem is.  The president calls it diplomacy. Others may refer to it as something else.  But nevertheless, unless Obama does something truly signifcant with the Navy, the chances of him having an aircraft carrier named after him are slim.  I did not say impossible, as anything is possible, just slim.  If history is a good indication of the future, I predict he won't.

Are we going to have to stoop down to your latitude and burn the White House down again?  Or maybe we'll have to beat the turkey stuffing out of you like we did Dec 31, 1775.  Stephen Harper is a godamned robot from the future, so I wouldn't be surprised if he took all your troops out without even draining half of his battery.

P.S. No. We have Boxing day after Christmas, what with us still being a member of the Commonwealth of Nations, since we didn't desert Britain like a bunch of turncoats.

P.P.S. That's enough trolling ignorant people for one night.  But I better see a Thanksgiving article on October 12 next year, or you can kiss my loonies goodbye.

Who is Stephen Harper?  Why do 90% of canadians live along the U.S. border?  Who cares about canada?

I am thankful for Maximum PC. Without which I would probably never hear from family members to resolve their pc issues.

Happy Thanksgiving y'all.

If that picture after the "spam war" thing was one of the offenders, that's pretty weird. He does look like a criminal, even if it's only spam.

I agree with you about printers. The ink is just way over priced and you don't get much of it to start with. 

 

Back in the day befor we had Plug n play we had to manually set everything up. Remember that I couldn't set the IRQ for my printer or my sound card so I couldn't use my sound card while my printer was connected to my PC.

And Win95 brought about PlugNPlay.  Or at least Win95 was the current OS when Plug n Play got it's start and when PnP first started it was called Plug n Pray.
