I don't use any 3rd party applications on Facebook but is this some kind of adware/phishing/virus etc? The images in the right frame appeared while typing a status update; when I finished entering the update they disappeared. I haven't been able to reproduce this consistently but it has happened twice since yesterday. Anyone seen this?
I'm a mid-twenties, relatively-tall, relatively-fit (6' 1", 180 lbs...but I run a lot) guy who has a shirt problem. During the colder months I really like wearing long-sleeve cotton shirts as a sort of base layer under other things. My problem? I can't find any brand that fits...either the arms are too short, or the shirt maker seems to presume that I'm going to have a beer belly to go along with my longer than average arms. I.e., what I'm looking for is something like the small size of this, but with longer arms. I realize I could get larger shirts tailored down or go the bespoken route, but both of those options seem kind of overkill for what should really be a pretty standard product. Are there any brands that serve guys in my size by default? [more inside]

Years ago, I had an mp3 of :wumpscut:'s "Thorns" that was completely instrumental- no vocals at all. I lost it in a hard drive crash and have been unable to find it ever since. Can anybody tell me which mix that was and what disc I can find it on?
How do I manually remove win32/fakespypro (showed up from a link someone sent) from my Vista system? I googled,with no luck from any reliable sources. I have four antivirus pgms installed, they keep removing it but it comes back. I now have DOS issues, no internet, cannot execute most pgms.. I managed to get regedit up but cannot find the keywords to fix it. Oddly enough, my restore disk became full at the same time. Where are the entries in the registry?

I want to identify the name of a childrens' live-action comedic television show around 1980 with a castle and an ongoing joke where two of the characters (one Igor-like?) make a telephone call for the recorded weather announcement which always began with a version of "The weather today will be bright and sunny" (phoning character repeats this happily to their friend) and always ended with "…except for the castle, where it will be raining." What was this show, please?
