JOKE OF THE WEEK
A woman went to the doctor's office and was seen by one of the new young doctors. After about four minutes in the examination room, she started screaming and ran down the hall. An older doctor stopped her and asked what the problem was, and she told him her story. After listening, he told her to sit down and relax in another room. The older doctor marched down the hallway to the back where the first doctor was and demanded, "What's the matter with you? Mrs. Terry is 63 years old, she has four grown children and seven grandchildren, and you told her she was pregnant?" The new doctor continued to write on his clipboard and, without looking up, said, "Does she still have the hiccups?"

JOKE OF THE WEEK

Weird and Wonderful Site Names
All of these are legitimate companies dealing in regular products and services, but they didn't think their domain names through!
Take note of their 'Domain Names'! Some of them are prime candidates for the "What was
I thinking?" Award!
ALL of these websites actually exist, selling something totally benign, (and work - safe, in case
you're wondering).

1). A site called 'Who represents' where you can find the name of the agent that represents a celebrity. Their domain name is: www.whorepresents.com

2). 'Experts Exchange', a knowledge base where programmers can exchange advice and views at: www.expertsexchange.com

3). Looking for a pen? Look no further than 'Pen Island' at: www.penisland.net

4). Need a 'therapist'? Try 'Therapist Finder' at: www.therapistfinder.com

5). Then of course, there's the 'Italian Power Generator Company' - www.powergenitalia.com

6). And now, we have the Mole Station Native Nursery,
based in New South Wales: www.molestationnursery.com

7). If you're looking for computer software, there's always www.ipanywhere.com

8). Welcome to the First Cumming Methodist Church. Their website is www.cummingfirst.com

9). Then, of course, there's these brainless art designers, and their wacky website: www.speedofartcom

10). Want to holiday in Lake Tahoe? Try their brochure website at: www.gotahoe.com

WEEKLY JOKE
(this is a long one, but one of the best i have ever come across)
After every flight, pilots fill out a form, called a gripe sheet which tells mechanics about problems with the aircraft. The mechanics correct the problems, document their repairs on the form, and then pilots review the gripe sheets before the next flight. Never let it be said that ground crews lack a sense of humor. Here are some maintenance complaints submitted by pilots and the solutions recorded by maintenance engineers. By the way, the airline these came from is the only major airline that has never, ever, had an accident.

Pilot: Left inside main tire almost needs replacement.
Engineers: Almost replaced left inside main tire.

Pilot: Test flight OK, except auto-land very rough.
Engineers: Auto-land not installed on this aircraft.

Pilot: Something loose in cockpit.
Engineers: Something tightened in cockpit.

Pilot: Dead bugs on windshield.
Engineers: Live bugs on back-order.

Pilot: Autopilot in altitude-hold mode produces a 200 feet per minute descent.
Engineers: Cannot reproduce problem on ground.

Pilot: Evidence of leak on right main landing gear.
Engineers: Evidence removed.

Pilot: DME volume unbelievably loud.
Engineers: DME volume set to more believable level.

Pilot: Friction locks cause throttle levers to stick.
Engineers: That's what friction locks are for.

Pilot: IFF inoperative in OFF mode.
Engineers: IFF always inoperative in OFF mode.

Pilot: Suspected crack in windshield.
Engineers: Suspect you're right.

Pilot: Number 3 engine missing.
Engineers: Engine found on right wing after brief search.

Pilot: Aircraft handles funny.
Engineers: Aircraft warned to straighten up, fly right, and be serious.

Pilot: Target radar hums.
Engineers: Reprogrammed target radar with lyrics.

Pilot: Mouse in cockpit.
Engineers: Cat installed.

Pilot: Noise coming from under instrument panel. Sounds like a midget pounding on something with a hammer.
Engineers: Took hammer away from midget

ON SECOND THOUGHTS...
Before:
Marriages are made in heaven

After:
I have been in love with the same woman for 19 years. If my wife finds out, she will kill me.

WORLD
M9 activities
M9 activities: the posts made in the “beyond mobile” section, except in the “groups” sub-forums are no longer counted towards the total number of posts made by a member.
Admins decided this was the best way to curb spamming, and for newbies to judge better basd on the post-count
QUOTE
The main purpose is to emphasise the help in mobile related posts.

Beyond mobile and all other forums are" extra" forums for the enjoyment of members. Now you can post in those forums without being told it is SPAM.

Without the mobile related content there would be no forums Full stop. the forum's main purpose is to help newbies with queries related to mobiles. That is the main factor in the forum.

Having a large number of post count and not having helped any member in the mobile related stuff inflates your reputation. New members would expect you to have knowledge in mobile related queries with large post counts. So we are encouraging you to take part in mobile related forums to help mobile9 help new members and build up a forum with informative information in regards to mobile related issues. this is the main aim of the forum, everything else is an additional bonus to members. This is the main reason behind the post count.

SURPRISE IN STORE

the leaders of HB have a nice surprise in store for all its members. i would have told you what it is, but then it wouldn't remain a surprise anymore. but here's a small hint- it is a topic related to the above headline :)

THT NOW A FORTNIGHTLY

now for some bad news. your favourite paper has become a fortnightly instead of a weekly. now it will be published only twice a month, instead of four times. this is due to the increasing work-load of the editor, not only in M9 but also in his personal life :lol:

EDITOR ON LOOK-OUT FOR GRAPHICS

ok, so next up is an advertisement! the editor of THT iis looking for a capable graphics designer to design the headers for THT. to apply, or for more information, the member can PM BoxieBlue

HB ASST. LEADER WORKING ON A NEW PROJECT

one of our most respected(and sometimes feared)member is working on a new project. if succesful, he may change the way M9 looks, and may make it one of the most user-friendly web-site for mobile phones!!

RULES UPDATED

and finally, for those who have not read the updated rules. Inactivity has been re-defined as failure to participate in the HB forums for more than 15 days, without prior warning. being inacte may result in a temporary ban from HB. the member may be reincluded in the group if he/she provides a valid reason(NOT an excuse, a reason!).

The Hazard Times


HB-WPC Integrated
Following a positive response from WPC participants, the Wallpaper Competition forums were integrated with Hazard Blue! This move seems to have successfully resurrected HB from the near-death stage it had reached, at the same time giving WPC participants better freedom of spamming.

It all started with a small idea by one of the two current WPC managers. The idea was to enable the members to discuss things more freely, and showcase their talent beyond the WPC forums. The idea was also to rebuild HB and reconvert it into the lively sub-forum that it once was. Participants took to this idea pretty well, and the Integration of HB and WPC happened!

All WPC participants are now free to use the HB forums to discuss whatever they want to. While constructive spamming (whatever that means!) is allowed, members are encourage to exchange and put forward ideas that will help other members, as well as contribute to the growth of HB. HB also features a showcase for members to post their wallpapers and themes in.


SDC Planned. Krakit the manager.
Let’s all give a round of applause to krakit, who will be managing the first Sig Designing Competition. The HB mods bowed to the huge public pressure ( (IMG:style_emoticons/default/tongue.gif) ) and decided to go ahead with the competition. It will be held in the Hazard Blue forum itself. However, everyone will be invited to participate.

The competition will officially start on 15th November. It will last for a fortnight and voting will begin when November ends. Winners will be awarded SDC trophies.

Members are requested to start publicising the event and pull in as many competitors as they can. Remember, the more the merrier! Participants can be roped in from WPC, TMC and STC...this means a participant base of potentially more than 50! (ok...so who’s gonna count the votes? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif) ). Members are also welcome to put up banners in their homesites and sigs in order to publicise it.

Krakit will be the honorary manager for the event. It should be noted that competitors will also have to design an accompanying 100x100 avatar to go with the sig.


Bigger surprises planned!
Alryt, HB homies! Your WPC manager and favourite guy has bigger surprises in store for you (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wow.gif) What they are, I cannot reveal yet, else they wouldn’t really remain surprises anymore. But one thing’s for sure, if my...ahem...plans are successful, you guys will have a lot to talk about!


Advertisement:
The HB mods hereby welcome applicants for the following:
1. Official HB sig designer
2. Official SDC banner designer
Alright, you don’t really have to send in your resumes for the post. All you have to do is post your designs. The members will vote for the best design and select the one they feel is the best. There will be a separate thread for this soon....very soon.


Ciao
For the newcomers, this was just an introductory THT. Keep watching this space for the latest gossip and news related to M9 (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif) Feel free to browse through some of the earlier editions of THT if you wish.
That’s it for this edition. See ya’ll later (IMG:style_emoticons/default/byebye.gif)
