Definitely. DLed, unzipped, tried...
First it said "Partition Collappsed"[sic]
Then it told me to initialize the drive. I did.
Then I selected the entire drive area and tried
formatting: "Failed to determine drive", both
with and without the Quick Format selected.
Drat, it's unusable.

4GB is the normal FAT32 limit. You can get around this in several ways:
1. Reformat the drive with 64Mb sector sizes.
2. Reformat with NTFS. You've said in other responses that the drive won't
That is VERY hard to believe.
Not at all ... being a USB thumb drive, XP's Device Manager
automagically assumes when it is inserted that you want it configured
for "quick removal", which, since Windows does not allow "hot swapping"
of drives, will try to keep you from formatting.
Things may have changed, but it was like that up to at least SP1 on XP,
which is the last time I dealt with XP.
Being Windows, there might also be other configuration issues, but this
was a definitely known issue when trying to format larger the 4GB USB
drives when they first came out ... which is why I mentioned the
possibility of this being the problem.
You won't hear it from me, have been married or in a serious
relationships for 25 yrs and never once have I cheated on a

[snipped another good one for brevity's sake]
For me to be even remotely interested in a fling, the 'other' woman
would have to be more beautiful inside and out, more intelligent, and
more loving/caring than the one I'm married to.
THAT will never happen.
I am still able to appreciate the physical beauty of other women...
there's some stunning bitchmeat out there...
Besides... scoring floozies when one has Tiger-kinda money, is hardly
If he shot 18 hole-in-one's at the next Masters...he wouldn't crawl up
my respect scale one lousy inch.
I agree totally, I can't even begin to imagine the woman that would be
able to lead me to cheat on my wife. Sure, the opportunity has
presented itself, but it was easy to say no.
My word is my honour, I made the commitment when we said our vows.
The system will be down for 10 days for preventive maintenance.
One of the more ironic things in this is the media feeding frenzy,
especially compared to their [non]coverage of one fairly serious
presidential primary contender who engaged in the same kind of behavior with
one of his staff while his wife was fighting cancer, fathered a child, and
then paid to cover it up. Funny thing, the only media to cover it was the
Enquirer, all the other media outlets tried to ignore the story and had be
be dragged, kicking and streaming to even give it some mention.
There is never a situation where having more rounds is a disadvantage
Actually, I never had a bad relationship with a woman. For the most
part, in their twenties and thirties women were still fun, and looking
to have fun. I was all for that. I had some relationships that
lasted, but most were fun acquaintances.
I didn't meet the woman I am with now and get serious until I was
about 34. Until that time, I spent my days learning, starting and
running two different businesses. I had the pleasure and luck to meet
all kinds of females on that track, but the businesses were more
interesting and certainly demanded more than the women I met. But
most of nights were either spent in the office or "out and about".
Interestingly, I frequently talk to guys that wonder what their lives
would have been like if they had money to do what they wanted, and had
stayed single through their teens, all of their twenties, and part of
their 30s free to go out or date as they pleased.. I'll just say, <<

Besides, women don't really get interesting until they get in their
Then I met the woman I am with now, and have been with for 20 years.
After plenty of experience, I knew what I had found and was willing to
be monogamous. After all, you only get out of a relationship what you
put in it, right? I certainly expected the same level of commitment
I have never regretted what I did as my old uncommitted self (even
though I was probably a lot more fun to be around in those days!),
nor my decision to commit.
