XP onto a new W7 E-Machine 



Zoom the font size for best readability   
Good Morning,  !
It's Thursday, September 9, 2010
Neil,  long time subscriber, told me about some excellent PDF 
form filling software: Tracker. PDF Xchange. I have to admit, 
after testing so many of those programs, I was a very skeptical.
So I downloaded the free version and used it to fill out some forms, 
that had been sent to me in PDF format.

Between the first and the second form Neil told me via Skype
how to set the default font, and saved me from having to read 
the instructions. 

All the rest was quite straightforward and common sense. 
I finished those three forms, including pasting my signature 
onto them, almost as fast as I could have done it with a pen. 

When I was done, I realized that I had used maybe 2% of 
the tools available in the free version. 
Scary to contemplate what all is lurking in the paid version!
For right now, though, I am quite happy with the free version.
Thank you,Neil!

Have FUN!

The customer in the Italian restaurant was so pleased that he asked to speak to the chef. The owner proudly led him into the kitchen and introduced him to the chef. "Your veal parmigiana was superb," the customer said. "I just spent a month in Italy, and yours is better than any I ever had over there." "Naturally," the chef said. "Over there, they use domestic cheese. Ours is imported."
We stopped for a quick meal and the waiter brought us each a bowl of soup. As the waiter turned away to return to the kitchen, Pa stopped him, calling: "Waiter!" "Yes ,sir, is there something wrong?" "The soup. Taste it," replied Pa. "I beg your pardon, Sir?" "Taste it." "But, Sir, I can assure you that the soup is excellent." "Taste it," Pa persisted. "Sir, the soup was made this morning of the finest ingredients." "Taste it!" The exasperated waiter finally relented. "All right, Sir, I'll taste it." Then after a pause he said, "Where is the spoon?" To which Pa replied triumphantly, "Ah ha ... "

At a fancy reception a young man was asked by a widow to guess her age. "You must have some idea," she urged as he hesitated. "I have several ideas," he admitted with a smile, "the trouble is that I don't know whether to make it ten years younger because of your looks of ten years older because of your wisdom."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD and goes to Janice Shields, 58, in Charlotte, NC Naked woman breaks into school after beating up husband CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - A nude woman who was found inside a school in Charlotte early Monday morning is now facing charges after police say she assaulted her husband. Police found out about the incident after responding to a breaking and entering call around 4 a.m. at Jay M. Robinson Middle School, which is located at 5925 Ballantyne Commons Parkway. According to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department, Janice Shields, 58, told cops she went to a party with her husband and later found herself waking up naked in the school. Police said Shields "has a bad case of selective memory" and was not forthcoming with the details which resulted in her being found naked at the school. Cops later interviewed Shields' husband and learned that he was injured by her. He said they pulled over in front of the school early Monday morning and got into a verbal disagreement. The woman allegedly punched her husband in the face breaking his nose and causing injury to his eye. Police said she then jumped out of the truck and walked away naked. They say she later broke into the school which set off all kinds of alarms. When police arrived at the school, they called paramedics. Shields was taken to Carolinas Medical Center-Pineville where she was treated for minor abrasions on her hand. She was then taken to the Mecklenburg County Jail. She has been charged with domestic assault, and breaking and entering.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Hank Re: XP onto new E-Machine Dear Webby, I have changed my ISP. My new address is: .......... Also I have a question. My old PC died. I bought a new fast E-Machine with windows 7. It has lots of RAM and hard drive space. I have an installation disc from my old machine which is Windows XP. Can I install it in my new PC without doing harm and get back into XP? Thanks, Hank Dear Hank If you have the complete XP Set-Up CD, not just a restoration CD, it should work fine. You may have to download a few XP drivers for sound cards and other components, that were not available yet at the time that CD was made, but since they do sell that machine also with Windows 7 PRO or Ultimate, which you can get with XP Pre-Installed, the company DOES have those XP drivers. Have FUN! DearWebby Fixed the link. It works now.

A Doctor was explaining to a friend how nature sometimes compensates for a persons deficiencies. "For example," he told him, "If a man is deaf, he may have keener sight, and if a man is blind, he may have a keen sense of smell." "I think I see what you mean," said Paddy, "I've often noticed that if a man has one short leg, then the other one is always longer."

Jon, Brian, and Bernie were in the pub enjoying a few quiet drinks one night, when they decided to get in on the weekly raffle. They bought five $1 tickets each, seeing it was for charity. The following week, when the raffle was drawn, they each won a prize. Jon won the first prize: a whole year's supply of gourmet spaghetti sauce. Brian won the second prize: six month's supply of extra-long gourmet spaghetti. Bernie won the sixth prize: a toilet brush. When they met in the pub a week later, Bernie asked the others how they were enjoying their prizes. "Great," said Jon. "I love spaghetti." "So do I," said Brian. "And how's the toilet brush, Bernie?" "Not so good," Bernie confided. "I'm going to have to go back to paper."

A young mother was visiting a doctor friend and made no attempt to restrain her four-year-old son, who was ransacking an adjoining room. But finally, an extra loud clatter of bottles did prompt her to say, "I hope you don't mind Johnny being in there." "Nah," said the doctor calmly, "That's just poisons in there. They take some time but are quite effective. He'll be quiet soon."
