Ars Technica reported how the US government's drive for security 
back doors has enabled the Iranian government to spy on its citizens. 
"For instance, TKTK was lambasted last year for selling telecom 
equipment to Iran that included the ability to wiretap mobile 
phones at will. Lost in that uproar was the fact that sophisticated 
wiretapping capabilities became standard issue for technology 
thanks to the US government's CALEA rules that require all
phone systems, and now broadband systems, to include these 
capabilities."

Awww, now the poor Iranians have to put up with the same 
Big Brother surveillance as Americans. Don't you feel sorry
for them?

Have FUN!

There was a boy of about 8 who was having a horrible time with his grades in school - math was especially bad. His parents tried everything, but nothing worked, so his parents ended up sending him to a school in Canada. Well, when report card time rolled around, his parents took it, and, with much trepidation, opened it little by little...and saw an A, then another A, and another...however, the final grade was the dreaded one - the mathematics... Well, they opened the page, and saw an A! Incredible! They asked their son what had brought the turnaround, especially in that troubling subject. He said, "Well, when I walked into the classroom, and saw that guy nailed to the plus sign, I knew they took their math pretty seriously."
A very beautiful, but not so bright lady schedules a three-hour session with her therapist, and all she wants to talk about is how the constant pressure of being a beautiful, desirable blonde is causing her migraine headaches. For two hours straight, she whines, and cries, and moans about how hard it is to be so sexy, while everyone in the world is jealous of her, and says mean things about her, and calls her dumb, and self-centered, and shallow . . . At the two-and-a-half-hour mark, the blonde suddenly stops in mid sentence and shouts, "Doctor! You're a miracle worker! I'm cured! My headache is gone!" The shrink sighs and replies, "No, it isn't gone . . . I have it now."

Gramma sent her grandson Johnny down to the water hole to get some water for cooking dinner. As he was dipping the bucket in, he saw two big eyes looking back at him. He dropped the bucket and hightailed it for Gramma's kitchen. "Now, where's my bucket and my water?" Gramma asked him. "I can't get any water from that water hole, Gramma" cried Johnny. "There's a BIG ol' alligator down there!" "Now don't you mind that ol' alligator, Johnny. He's been there for a few years now, and he's never hurt no one. Why, he's probably as scared of you as you are of him!" "Well, Gramma," replied Johnny, "if he's as scared of me as I am of him, then that water ain't fit to drink!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to two teenagers in Colorado Springs, CO Car thieves caught because they can't drive stick A couple of teenagers learned just how difficult it can be to operate a stick-shift transmission Saturday morning. Police quickly found a stolen purple Ford Explorer early Saturday when police noticed a similar-looking SUV lurching back and forth near Academy Boulevard and Platte Avenue. When police tried pulling over the SUV, two teens inside the vehicle tried running away. They were quickly caught. Police later learned the teens did not know how to operate a stickshift. The teens' names have not been released.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Alex Re: No page backgrounds in IE Dear Webby, I bought a used computer. It works quite well, but in Internet Explorer the pages don't show page backgrounds, and the colors occasionally are way off, compared to what I am used to. With my graphcs program everything shows normal, so it isn't the video card or the monitor. I searched all over the net, but could not find a solution to that. How do I fix that? Thanks Alex Dear Alex, Go to CONTROL PANEL, ACCESSIBITY OPTIONS, then select the DISPLAY tab. Uncheck the USE HIGH CONTRAST checkbox. All background colors and font stability should return immediately. If not, reboot. That should take care of that. Have FUN! DearWebby

Little Johnny watched, fascinated, as his mother smoothed cold cream on her face."Why do you do that, mommy?" he asked. "To make myself beautiful," said his mother, who then began removing the cream with a tissue. "What's the matter?" asked Little Johnny. "Giving up?"
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Attach Recipes to Homemade Mixes I make homemade food mixes and store them in half gallon or gallon jars. Using a rubber band, I keep the recipe attached to the jar. The next time I have to make another batch, the recipe is readily available. Also, on the cards I have the cooking/baking instructions and any special notes. Keeping the recipes readily available makes it easier and faster for me to make the mixes. I also do this for homemade cleaning mixes that I use in my home.

A 93 year old man went to his doctor to get a physical. A week later, the doctor saw the man walking down the street with an attractive young woman on his arm. At the man's next visit, the doctor said, "I saw you with a lady the other day. You're really doing great, aren't you?" The man replied, "Just doing what you said Doc, 'Get a hot mamma and be cheerful'." The Doctor said, "I didn't say that. I said you got a heart murmur. Be careful." "Too late! I'm fine now!"

"So, what's the matter?" asked one woman of her friend over coffee. "I thought you just got back from a nice relaxing fishing trip with your husband." "Oh, everything went wrong," the second woman answered. "First, he said I talked so loud I would scare the fish. Then he said I was using the wrong bait; and then that I was reeling in too soon. "All that might have been all right; but then, to make matters worse, I ended up catching a lot of fish, and HE didn't!"
