Stephen Fry advice.

Looking for a video clip of Stephen Fry in an interview where he gives advice to young people. He specifically talks about the abnegation of self and being someone who is interested in others and not talking about oneself all time.

Wall St. vs Main St (or, should I stop worrying and learn to love the banks?)

My bank is now asking if I'd like to enroll in overdraft protection. I think this is from the financial reform legislation, and I don't know the real benefits of enrolling vs not enrolling. If I don't enroll, the bank claims the charge will just be denied but I do not believe that banks are eager to miss out on their charges and fees and am reluctant. Any thoughts appreciated on this minor banking issue.

Apple Remote Desktop display funkiness with Pismo laptop

I'm running Apple Remote Desktop version 3.3.2 on a PB G4 12" running 10.4. Of the two Macs I'm managing remotely, my PPC Mac Mini (running 10.5) is working perfectly, but my iTunes box, an ancient (2000) Pismo laptop (on 10.4) is giving me video distortion (see photo). Other than the video problems, ARD functions on this machine as it should. I've updated the client software on the Pismo and the problem persists. All machines on the network are fully patched and updated. Anyone seen this sort of thing, and how did you solve it?
