What the hell is this?? (pics)

THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH COMPUTERS - I HAVE A PAINTING ON MY WALL THAT LOOKS LIKE A COMPUTER DESKTOP - DON'T ASK!

It's so little and yet it irritates me in such a grand way.

Look at these pictures:

There's this little thing that appears on the top left of THIS PAINTING OF A COMPUTER BACKGROUND THAT I HAVE intermittently...but it's only there sometimes....and it will like go away when sometimes stuff is well not as big as it could be....but I can't find any pattern to it, or figure out what the hell is causing it to appear.

Now, for the record, I *DO NOT WANT SERIOUS RESPONSES*...

Be funny and creative and tell me (Seinfeld voice) WHAT IS THE DEAL WITH THAT LITTLE THING IN THE CORNER?(\Seinfeld voice)





So you'll probably just ignore this thread instead of trying to be creative.....but please don't do that.

Once again you're looking at the littel gray square in the top left corner of THE ARTWORK I HAVE HANGING ON MY WALL..

Keep it in the vein of Jules and Keyser Soze...and please don't ignore it..it took me a while to take PHOTOGRAPHS of the PAINTING and upload them to the web and all that shiznit....so be cool and tell me what the dilly yo

Sorry LB, I can't possibly make this comedic in any way, shape, or form. It's just too confusing...

What movie is that wallpaper from?

It's spyware from Kazza. Uninstall it and install Morpheus. It's the same exact thing except without the spyware.

Why did this get moved?
Look at the first line...it has "nothing to do with computers".

Because it didn't seem too much out of the ordinary he didn't look into it but I suggest you search around you computer while you still have files to search through...

How can a painting have a virus?

The mods probably didn't believe LB that it was a "painting."

LBPound23, are you interested in a vacation? E-mailing about a moved thread is one thing, reposting where it was moved from is a fairly serious offense.

It's funny enough. Just fewer people may see it.

Make no mistake about it...I'm sorry for reposting the thread. I just DO NOT understand why you can joke about ANYTHING in Otter but if you mention a computer in anyway, it suddenly becomes serious and has to be treated as serious and moved to PC. I DIDN'T WANT A SERIOUS ANSWER!

It was to be a funny thread...like what is this Sven doing in the pic?

Nevertheless, I apologize for not realizing that people could be funny about computers.

Seriously, X, I'm sorry...and I'm not interested in a vacation. I've never flown before anyhow! (Not even on acid and stuff! ) And I don't really have time for a local vacation. And definitely don't want a suspension, if that's what you mean.

So, I apologize legitimately....make no mistake about it.

And WhoGirl, it's from Tommy Boy.

Why don't you e-mail an Other mod or two and get their opinion on whether they want it there? It looks too much like a blatant attempt to get an answer to a computer problem while disguising it as something else to me.

And threads get moved to all the other forums when they belong there. Try talking about a problem with a DVD and see what happens.

Now that is funny stuff.

Speaking of Waldo, guys wanna play Where's Waldo and identify the songs in Winamp??

X, it's cool that this doesn't have to go in Otter...I didn't want a serious answer, but it's fine here as long as it doesn't bother you.

And I'm pretty sure the answer is "get a bigger power supply".
