Who am I?
I am but a humble simple soul. I am the subject of numerous documentaries and biographies. I choreograph award-winning ballets and have swum the English Channel. Occasionally, I tread water for three days in a row. I sleep 3 hrs a day and always do so standing up. For fun I write compilers in Cobol and do mental arithmetic in Hex. I am the man at the front of the line up, I never miss the bowl and I know nothing of error messages. I am the man behind you in a crowd, the fleeting reflection in the window, the voice in the distance and the shape in the shadows. I have hacked Microsoft and EE before breakfast just for fun. My IP address is always a prime number. SheharyaarSaahil phones me for advice when stuck. I don't perspire and I cook 1 min rice in 45 secs. I invented the Reef Knot and can hear trees fall in distant forests. The laws of physics do not apply to me. I once read War and Peace, Paradise Lost and all of Knuth in one day and still had time to to counsel Paul Allen. I have never passed wind. I have never had to use Crtl-Alt-Delete. I drink beer with Mick Jagger and go skiing with Kofi Annan. I am an expert in hieroglyphic palindromes and can vomit at will. I do shopping for little old ladies on Fridays and heart/lung transplants on Saturdays. Red lights turn green on my arrival. I have lived in Antarctica, flown with eagles and swum with dolphins. Children and animals trust me. Women swoon when I talk about assembler. I write poetry in Sanskrit, short stories in Cuneiform and have spoken to Elvis. I am nimble, I am quick, I am ubiquitous, I am the everyman. Who am I? I am humbly yours, Xxavier. :0)
Uncle X's 'handy dandy' tools (#5 is my favourite):-
Just copy and paste into the location bar (as one line) and press return. (hit Ctrl-n to get a location bar if one not there).
(1) Source grabbers
IE and NS
(2) Image grabber (IE and NS)
(3) Link grabber
(4) EE Comment ID grabber (not great for OldLook, working on that)
On IE just copy this in the toolbar and press return to create a bookmark, just hit the bookmark when on a page and it will add the comment ID's
In Mozilla just copy and paste into the location bar and press return or create a bookmark with the location as below. To do this go to bookamarks/bookmark_manage
(5) Question anlayser (work in progress but works)
It analyses a thread, eg the name of the contributors, number of posts etc, NewLook and IE at the moment only sorry. Just copy and paste into the location bar and press return or create a bookmark with the location as below.
(6) Post preiviewer
Good for testing if formatting is as you think (IE & NewLook). Type comment into comment textarea and put this in loaction bar press return, shows you what your post will look like ( note: it does no submit your post it just previews)
(7) Page Refresher
Refreshes every 5secs (5000millisecs) change value as desired. Good for eBay apparently. Scroll down in popup to to the point you want to watch on the page, if it does not scroll to that point after refresh then page has been updated
(8) Post/Questioner checker (work in progress but works)
This puts timed checks on a window to see if the page changes, ie if a post is added or a question is asked (for those without QP). Open the page to be checked in a new window put this in the address bar press return. Minimise the popup and the page and forget about them. If the page changes then an alert box will let you know. This is set for every 30secs (ie 30000ms) change value as desired. The alert comes 30secs after the change occurs (working on that) so do not use for very time critical things. It is also repeatedly reloading the whole page so be careful to not use it too much else will bring reponse to stand still. (IE,NS old and new look, not limited to EE). Fool proof on actual question but can very very rarely slip up on topic area question list. Check it by changing you profile.

Posting off topic comments in technical areas is one of the things tha Membership Agreement and Guidelines ask you not to do. Your participation on http://www.experts-exchange.com/Miscellaneous/Math_Science/Q_21153599.html (now deleted) clearly does not have much other than off-topic remarks.
The posting to a Community Support question is also one of the things you should not be doing (http://www.experts-exchange.com/Community_Support/Suggestions/Q_21153633.html)
Consider this a warning that is being considered in conjunction with the warning you recieved from Computer101 on 09/25/2003 which stated that if you return to involvement in negative situations at EE that your account would be permanently suspended. There is no statute of limitations, so my suggestion would be to conduct yourself in a manner that is less high-profile than you are currently.
You are an intelligent, articulate and possess a rapier wit. I would hate to have to lose you to your own misbehaviour. Everything has a time and place. Please mind the guidelines.
