Ok I am looking at the installation manual, but why on earth does the new Windows operating system have 40 installation DVDs that require separate drive designations for each. Where am I supposed to get another 39 DVD drives!

Three minutes in the magic mini oven and the doughnuts are done to a turn - see ? Low fat and oh so quick.

Of course when we move from the prototype to the production version, it will all run off the one monitor. And we'll improve the storage capacity too.

Gulliver, welcome back to Lilliput! The structure you're towering over is our new combination apartment complex and drive-in theatre!

Note that many of the apartments have revolutionary extendable balconies, and many of the tenants can view the latest features from the comfort of their homes!
