The shark and the pirate
were drinking some tea
on a very small island
on the edge of the sea
The pirate was dead
he forgot all his roots
the tea that he drank
ended up in his boots
The shark was called Pierre
the pirate named Booker
Pierre thought it was silly
and called him a hooker
Booker was stunned
What’s this all about?
I’m your only best friend
and you’re bawling me out?
But Pierre didn’t stop
“Nondeju, sacre bleu!
Trottoir du fromage
et toilette, mon dieu!"
Booker got mad
He found back his wits
He fired a cannon
and blew Pierre to bits
Booker the pirate
was drinking some tea
all alone on the island
at the edge of the sea
He thought of the shark,
his words still hypnotic
but he hadn’t known
that Pierre was psychotic
HELP & FAQ
If you have problems downloading the file, you can check here for common problems that are usually very easy to solve.
How to download the file:
You can download the file to your harddisk by clicking on the download link in the DOWNLOAD
section. Once clicked, a window should appear that will ask you to save the file. Find a suitable place on your harddisk and click "save." The file should start to download now.
I clicked the download link, but nothing happens!
If no window appears, or the browser says "the page doesn't exist," it is most likely possible that my school's server is down, which means you'll have to wait until it's running again to retry to download the file.
I downloaded the file, now what?
Because the animation is saved inside a ZIP-file (to make the filesize a lot smaller; that way it takes less time to download it) you need to unzip the downloaded file first. If I'm correct, (and I don't know for sure, so don't shoot me if I'm wrong) Windows XP has a build-in zip program. If you don't have Windows XP, you need to use another program.
What other unzip programs are there and where can I find them?
I highly recommend using the latest version of Winrar (http://www.rarlab.com/rar/wrar351.exe
) because it's free and it has no expiration date, plus it works great, which is the most important thing. Download it, install in on your PC and you can use the program to unzip zipfiles.
What's the easiest way to unzip the file?
After you've installed Winrar, go to windows explorer, find the file you downloaded and right-click
on it. You should see an option called "Extract Here," which means that the contents of the zip-file will be put in the same folder as the zip-file. If you want to extract the contents to another location, choose "Extract Files..." and browse to the location of your choosing.
Okay, the files are unzipped. What do I do now?
If all goes well, you should be able to play the movie file in Windows Media Player or another media player; get your popcorn, sit back and relax.
I tried to open the file in Windows Media Player, but nothing happens!
This can have a couple of very common reasons:
#1: Because the movie file has been rendered with a DIVX codec (to make the file smaller,) it could be that this codec was not installed on your computer. Download the latest DIVX Player Codec (http://www.divx.com/divx/play/download/
), install it on your PC and try to play the movie again.
#2: If the movie still refuses to play, download the latest version of Windows Media Player (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=b446ae53-3759-40cf-80d5-cde4bbe07999&displaylang=en
) and install it on your PC. Try to play the movie again.
#3: If the movie still won't play, contact me ([Trennas
]) and I'll try to help you out.
#4: If I am unable to help you, throw your PC out of the window and buy a new one.
