Oh sorry, forgot all about it. Holidays just finished and i've been extremely busy with my History assignment.

If you want to have a go at it, the song is:

Ozzy Osbourne - You Can't Kill Rock 'n Roll (original version)

The original version is far different to the one re-released in 2002 which dominates the internet, so if you can't find it I could upload it somewhere for you.

The fade I want removed is at the end of the song, the last minute or so has an outro-solo which slowly get's faded out, i'm sure you could see where it fades on your program.

I hate it when people say "These chips are very 'addicting'," instead of "these chips are very 'addictive'." It's not addicting! It's ADDICTIVE!!! Lol. I also hate it when you are trying to explain how to do something on the computer while the person you are trying to teach is on there. For instance you say, "Click file, save as, and then type your file name to save it as something else." "Where is file?" "Right in the corner." "Where?" "Here!" "??" "*huge gasping sigh* Let me see the the mouse..." "Stop trying to take over!!!" "Do you want my help or not!?!?" "NO! you aren't helping me!! you always take over!" "You just don't listen, or are too stupid to get it!" "Screw you, I'm not helping then." "Heyyy!!!" "I made up my mind, now you make up yours next time!" "I'm going to a friend's house". Oh yeah, and then I get blamed when the computer screws up. BTW, the other person is my sister. lol.

Biggest thing that pisses me off - So many things I want to build and yet I'm severely restricted by money. I'd be building a 140mm cannon right now, I just need £100. A hundred quid that I don't have..

Been there, done that my brother. :? It's really frustrating trying to assist those who don't have even basic Windows navigation and operation skills. It's much better today than it was 10 years ago, believe me. Today it's mostly older/elderly people that struggle with it.

I have the same problem, I have recently been trying to teach my mom how to put music on her MP3 player, it's very frustrating.

That is why I have my mom give me a list of music she likes, and I do it for her. :wink: Much easier that way.

laser pointers are a blessing from god, as far as helping people with computers (and messing with airplanes...:D) I would definitely be close to suicide if it weren't for GUIs. "now type 'CD E:/'... It'd be a nightmare. :angry4:

I do the same thing blind. I do it for them.

Ramses, you realize pointing a laser pointer at an airplane or helicopter is a felony right?

Mythbusters...
Need I say more?

when it comes to fake science, they are king. There shows are nothing but badly done experiments with terrible setup, too little research, not enough tests, and conclusions on inconclusive data.
Gaaaah! it drives me crazy! On there "bug bomb" test they never even showed basic knowledge of stoichiometry!

Paaiyan, you do realize that I was kidding, right?

lentamentalisk- Mythbusters probably doesn't want to give excessively accurate instructions to people unwilling to figure it out. if they say 1 bug bomb, is stoichiometric with 8 cu ft, someone will measure their room and hurt themselves. It has to be a liability thing. And it is a show for entertainment. See this thread.
