    hahahaha, lol. oh man, that's too damn funny, hmmm, save or open? save or open? save or open? being there are only 2 choices, try one of them (or better yet, y not both?) and see the result. welcome to the sim world my friend.

    To download you want to choose "save"


    If you attack the establishment long enough and hard enough, they will make you a member of it.

    or open, they both work. if you want the keep the file you're downloading on your hard disk, then chooses save as (you want to do this if it's a big file your downloading). if it's a small insignificant file (insignificant as in you only need to download, extract and install, you don't want to keep it on your hard disk, etc.) then choose open. either way, you'll be getting the file.

    ya i know. some ppl just crack me up&#33; first time i read this thread i couldn&#39;t stop laughing for 5 minutes, then i did the stupid thing of watching the red vs. blue halo videos, then i laughed for another 10 minutes, then i watched the christmas special for family guy, lets just say my stomach still hurts. seriously though, we shouldn&#39;t make fun of the guy, he had the guts to ask. but still, so damn funny&#33;

    Family Guy; Christmas special:

    Peter: oh loius&#33; they (fish) were all over me&#33; on my nose, in my ears and eyes. and while i was on my way out, i swear to god i heard one of them muttering something anti-semitic, it was horrible loius&#33;

    Hey, go easy on him. I remember the first days I had gotten my computer, I thought you downloaded everything to a floppy disk. I never thought to browse to a folder or my desktop to save it.


    Ahh it was hell trying to download this movie I wanted one time(a game trailer, about 40 mb&#39;s). I tried saving to my floppy disk and it always said "not enough space on disk". So I decided to go to the gamespy chat room and tell them about it. They told me I need to clear out my hard drive, and that it was too full. So what I did was I went to program files and just started deleting everything. Man was I stupid&#33;


    Now look at me. Three years ago I never thought I&#39;d be such a computer wiz as I am now. Hell, I put computers together for fun.

    So I was worse than peterpan. At least he hasn&#39;t been saving his videos to a floppy

    Oh I also remember that I had my brother come over and he showed me how to download. After I finally got the movie, I couldn&#39;t play it. I had deleted my damn realone player. I spent hours trying to make the shortcut&#39;s target point to...well I don&#39;t remember all...but it was hell..

    I didn&#39;t know what file types and shit were. I one day, while looking at a site, found this thing that said "download windows media player". I needed to view some online video or something. I got it, and I could finally watch that game video .

    I also remember that I used to think that if you copied the shortcut of a program to a floppy, that you could put the program on another computer. I was stupid for a 16 year old.

    I hope that gets the weight off your sholders Peterpan . By the way peterpan, do you know Michael Jackson?
