So I was looking through my archive of random screenshots, and I came across one of the basement where this thread used to live. And I figured that we needed it back! It's a good thread dammit.
Last thing I bought was:
Bottled water (don't normally buy this)
Easy, now go ahead and post what you bought last!

Well you see, even friends only journals can be read by determined people, no matter if they are on your friends list or not. But do not worry, RTSE protects you against even the most prying eye. The only thing they'll get to see is the title of this journal.
For DP, since he'd whine like a little boy if I didn't copy that thing.
Anyhow, I've been thinking about getting SRSBSNS.com for quite some time now, and well.. I've decided the act.
Currently in the design and programing stages (doing this with a guy from my class).
Any help and added insight would be much appreciated.
I've uploaded the current design basis for the site onto the FTP host that Logan gave me.

So we had a test about the internet a few weeks ago, just got my score back.
5 out of 24 questions were correct, how did I do it you ask?
Question 1: What is the internet?
The internet is a series of tubes that are all connected, when the tubes gets clogged because people flush at the same time the speed decreases. (I included a drawing of the tubes) [Teachers comment: Metaphor? 1/2]
Question 2: Can't recall the question.
There is none? 
Question 3: When was the internet born?
Question 4 and 5: What makes the internet so large?
The internet has a gigantic user database which makes it possible to spread a lot of information in the matter of a few seconds. You can therefor use the internet to get information.
Since it's anonymous it's easier for so called "whistleblowers" to spread information without risking their job or life. And as previously stated, the net has a large user group which makes it easy to communicate and spread information. 
Question 6: Name some negative sides about the internet.
Because most of the net is anonymous it's easy to spread anti race and religious views. 
Question 7: What's a LAN?
A local area network where 2 or more computers are hooked up to eachother and can only talk to eachother. 
Question 8: Can't remember the question.
THE TUBES ARE CLOGGED ALERT THE PRESIDENT! [?]
Question 9: What should be the main focus when designing a website?
Nice and easily readable design. [1/2]
Question 10: What does HTML stand for?
His Thelepathic Mind Lovers. 
Question 11: Can't recall the question.
That several people do something que pasa. 
Question 12: What's a floatboard?
Question 13: What's the main tasks in webdesign?
Idea, coke, hamburger, internet porn and completion. 
Question 14: What does CSS stand for?
Counter Strike Source. (You ask, I respond) 
Question 15: Can't remember the question.
Me, me and me.

Came across a fun Norwegian article about Spyware and Viruses.
Entire article translated into english by yours truly.
What happens if you blindfolded download everything you come across while you surf the web? Without protection of any kind.
By - Christopher Conradi
We were going to click on as many advertising banners as we could and say YES to every question about downloading and installing shifty software. How long would a computer that's getting the beatstick by those programs be able to function?
To complete this experiment we had to start with a fresh installation of Windows. So we installed Windows XP Professional Edition with Service Pack 2. Which also served as our only "security" for this test.
Only Windows applications running.
And no user installed applications on the computer at all.
Not surprisingly ErrorSafe was the first program that invited me to download their software that would "remove" spyware. Of course, this is just bullshit.
A few downloads later we can see that our Toolbars are starting to stack up, Kazaa did a fine job here.
The computer is starting to slow down.
Hey another spyware remover!
After these two downloads we lost our desktop image! It was replaced by a false warning and the problems really started showing up.
Together with the disappearance of the desktop image, there's a bubble showing up in the right corner ALL the time. It tells me to download a super program that will fix all my problems. We download it of course!
Yay, we're finding stuff.
This program goes through the HD to find threaths and delete them. Atleast so it says. In reality, it's just puking out unwanted files with viruses and other goodies. After this program had done its deed the computer started getting so slow that we had problems taking screenshots. And then the ctrl-alt-del task manager goes missing.
Error at ctrl-alt-del
The machine, now stepping in syrup, can barely start Internet Explorer. IE hangs up time and time again after about 20 seconds of use. We therefore try manicly to download Mozilla Firefox, to keep on downloading.
After a couple of fints, we get Firefox down and installed before the computer flashes the Blue Screen of Death.
Woo, taskmanager is back!
With Firefox we found a trick to get Taskmanager back.
By now the computer has become incredibly slow. It takes atleast 10 minutes just to get the computer up and running. We install a few more applications and the computer freezes. We get it to reboot, and this is the picture we're faced with.
We can no longer boot the computer. The only thing willing to start running is SearchBar. We throw in the towel and won't go for another round, on the now incredibly slow computer. We're defeated. From a fresh Windows installation to a complete crash in 3 and a half hours... Not bad.
We did try to repair the damage. First with SpyBot - Search and Destory. This didn't work. SpyBot - SD couldn't run at all. It crashed as soon as we started it.
We then tried Lavasoft's AdAware application. This one did run, and slowly, progressing it found 677 infected files from 20 different spyware/virus families.
AdAware search log.
After AdWare had done its job, the problems were still as great. There was no difference actually. Which was probably mostly the fault of a few viruses that were spreading in the computer. But we couldn't install an Antivirus application. We couldn't install ANYTHING on the computer.
The answer to the question therefore is: If you download everything you come across of shady software on the internet, you're most likely to have a non working computer within 3 hours.
Toolbar on toolbar.
Update: The next day I get this SMS from my ISP: "This is a message from Telenor. Your internet access status has been changed due to irregular traffic from your membership account. Go to www.online.no/abuse."
The experiment cause so much virus traffic that Telenor basicly just turned the tap off. That's what I call an infested machine.
