Calling all VBScripters!

I am trying to create a vbs script that will use vocabulary databases to randomly choose words according to sentence structure, then using a large database (that tells what words are relevant to the random word chosen) it creates a basic sentence. With more complicated sentence structures there are more complicated. I need some other vbscripters to help. Here is how it works The program chose a statement sentence. The basic structure is noun verb Then the program choses a word Cats verb Finally using the matching database it creates a realisitic sentence Cats meowed. A more complex sentence would be article noun verb preposition pronoun noun article cat verb preposition pronoun noun article cat called preposition her kittens article cat called to her kittens The cat called to her kittens

On a call indicator light

I need to figure out a cost effective way to let people know I'm on a phone call. This solution needs to light an LED automatically when I am actively using the telephone. Is there a way for a simple circuit to sense when a phone line is in use and not cause any line interference? The circuit doesn't need to be powered through the phone line, it just needs to be able to sense that the line is in use.I know how to solder and understand basic electronics concepts but am also very teachable. If someone can point me to a schematic I can build it.There are ready made, but expensive, solutions for sale but the costs are restrictive. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Call of Duty 4 magic spray

I was playing Call of Duty 4, and there was a part in the game where a S.A.S agent used some kind of aerosol spray that made the part of the fence that he sprayed brittle and was easily removed. I have never heard of anything in my comings and goings in chemistry that matches this, but according to the game developers they say every weapon is real. Has anyone heard of a spray or anything like this?

game varieties Answered

Here's my situation. I got Call of Duty: Special Editon 3 for the ps2 after playing the Xbox 360 version because I loved the multiplayer mode. But when my ps2 game arrived, it was only playable in single or online. I have close to dial-up internet. I have a Wii, Ps2, DS lite and Computer, So I was thinking about just selling it and buying it again for the wii. But I don't know if it has multiplayer (local). I could also get a newer call of duty. My last option is selling my ps2 and it's 14+ games and buying an Xbox 360. What should I do?
