ONCE AGAIN WE slide seamlessly from the holiday season, with its requisite debauchery in all things regarding food and drink, to this, the Season of Guilt. You're too fat, is the gospel of this new season. Look at you. God, you've really let yourself go. In the Season of Guilt, magazines are filled with "Before" and "After" ads featuring hefty women inexplicably allowing themselves to be photographed wearing unflattering halter tops and short shorts while seated in groaning lawn chairs, only to be magically transformed a few weeks later into size-8 vixens in black cocktail dresses with cascading hair and flawless makeup.

Your recent column about Hewlett-Packard printers that have two input ports built in got my hopes up until I checked and found my particular HP only has a single connection for a computer. I have a Mac and a PC sitting side-by -side in my home office, and I would like to use this printer with both of them.The best way to mix and match computers and printers other than buying a dual input printer is a device called an A/B box. These boxes have an output connector identical to the one on a PC that you link to the printer.

Morning, noon or night, if you watch TV with any regularity, you can't possibly miss seeing action in the War to Flatten America's Middle."Get rid of your gut," commands a toothy, endlessly smiling former aerobics champion named Brenda Dykgraaf. Click."I used to wear loose clothes to hide my tummy, but now, look," says one of those unidentified "real-people" shills in a floral leotard, revealing her presumably modified midriff. "We want you to have the perfect stomach." Click."Visualize yourself getting back into that dress, into those jeans, into that bathing suit," the muscular Jake Steinfeld bubbles on a shop-at-home channel, falling not much shy of speaking in tongues during a half-hour of selling his tummy-tightening, back-bracing exercise chair.

What I want to know is: Why is it important to have visible stomach muscles?I grew up in an era (the Paleolithic) when people kept their stomach muscles discreetly out of sight. Most of us didn't even realize we had stomach muscles; the only people who ever actually saw them were courageous surgeons willing to cut through fat layers the thickness of the Cleveland White Pages.I'm not saying we weren't in shape; I'm just saying we had a different concept of what the shape should be. For example, our idea of a stud-muffin prototype male was somebody along the lines of George Reeves, who starred in the black-and-white TV version of "Superman," playing the role of the mild-mannered newspaper reporter Clark Kent, whom nobody ever suspected of being Superman because he disguised himself by wearing glasses.

If making an entrance and knowing when to leave are the Golden Rules of chic, Edina and Patsy might make RuPaul envious.After 18 episodes, concluding with the series finale tonight at 8 on cable's Comedy Central, the pair that is "Absolutely Fabulous" has possibly eclipsed every other since Lucy and Ethel in influence, point for Nielsen ratings point.A stretch, you say? Consider that fewer people watch an "AbFab" episode on American television than watch a typical Saturday afternoon of golf on CBS. Yet, now that the British Broadcasting Corporation series is ending its first run on Comedy Central, a movie is planned -- a feat of television transubstantiation rarely achieved.
