Time to wear a bit of red to show support for the troops!

One of our servers got attacked in the evening. That sure 
caused a lot of unplanned work! 

Have FUN!

Judi was almost crazy with her three kids. She complained to her best friend, "They're driving me nuts. Such pests, they give me no rest and I'm half-way to the nut hatch." "What you need is a playpen to separate the kids from yourself," her friend said. So Judi bought a playpen. A few days later, her friend called to ask how things were going. "Superb! I can't believe it," Judi said. "I get into that pen and I can answer all of my mail before the first one climbs over it!"

A husband and wife were at a party chatting with some friends when the subject of marriage counselling came up. "Oh, we'll never need that. My wife and I have a great relationship," the husband bragged. His wife explained: "He was a communications major in college and I majored in theatre arts. He communicates quite well and I know how to act like I'm listening."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Peter Lawrence, 71, in San Diego Man, 71, gets 21 years for wheelchair bank robbery SAN DIEGO (AP) - A 71-year-old terminally ill man has been sentenced to 21 years in a California prison for rolling his wheelchair into a San Diego bank and holding it up with a replica BB gun. Judge Jeffrey Fraser said Friday that Peter Lawrence could theoretically get out of prison at age 90, when he would no longer be a threat to the public. According to City News Service, Lawrence told the judge he robbed the Chase bank of more than $2,000 this summer because he felt hopeless after being diagnosed with a myriad of medical problems. Defense lawyer Kenneth Kaminiski says his client did not want to harm anyone. Kaminiski says Lawrence wanted to get caught so he would not have to live on the streets. Prosecutors said Lawrence was a danger because he could use a real weapon in the future.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Peggy Re: Hijacked IE search Dear Webby, Why is it that I am being redirected to advertising sites when I click on specific links? For example, I was searching for a specific size label, I had already been on the Avery label website and did not find it. I put the size info in my browser search window and it gave me a list of links to try. One was for Avery labels so I clicked on that link, but instead of going to the page I wanted, I was redirected to another site. This is happening more and more. I did a search and found an article that said I probably had been hacked and needed to do a virus scan. I immediately did a complete scan with Malwarebytes and found nothing. Would you have any advice to help with this problem? Thanks for your daily letter, I enjoy the humor and take note of all the computer knowledge you share with us. Peggy Oliver HOME OF THE FREE BECAUSE OF THE BRAVE GOD BLESS OUR TROOPS AND KEEP THEM SAFE --------------------- Dear Peggy Which browser are you using? --------------------- IE --------------------- Dear Peggy That might explain, why I can't duplicate that weird browser behavior. IE is not secure enough for me, so I banned it from our machines some time ago. We use strictly just FireFox, and for searching, we use Google. You could try running SpyWare-Search&Destroy. McAfee has kept browser hijackers off my machines, but I have read that SpyWare-Search&Destroy does nab some hijackers, that Malwarebytes misses. You could also check and make sure that you don't have any goofy tool bars like the Yahoo or ATT search bar installed in your IE. If you do, then of course all bets are off. By the way, what size or type of label are you looking for? Have FUN! DearWebby Thanks for your advice. I tried using Firefox, but it messed up whenever I tried to access the banking websites. So I went back to IE out of necessity. I'm pretty sure I don't have any other tool bars, I always decline those whenever I have to download anything. I was looking for a label the size of a sheet of paper - we want to print on it and then paste it inside a file folder. --------------------- Dear Peggy I had to tell my bank once, that if they don't bring their site up to standard, I would move to a better bank. They were up to standard in a couple of days. Re full sheet labels: Those are awfully expensive! Why don't you just get an UHU stick (dry glue stick that looks like a yellow lipstick), and paste regular, cheap paper into the folders? I have done that for ages. One line across the top and a quick X is all it takes to hold a page forever. If you do want the sticky 8 1/2" x 11" labels, they are Avery # 5265 http://snipurl.com/fullsheetlabel You can order them from Staples: $11.99 for 25 labels. http://snipurl.com/staples-avery5265 However, if you want to do it like I do and print the folder liners onto the blank back-sides of mail, that you are not going to read a second (or first) time,... Liquid Glue Pens are $1.27 for two http://snipurl.com/liquid-glue-pens Single dry glue sticks are $1.79 http://snipurl.com/dry-glue-stick A six-pack of dry glue sticks is $10 http://snipurl.com/6-clear-dry-glue-sticks And then there is still the good ol' flour glue. A pinch of flour and a few drops of water mixed in a spoon or bottle cap makes a pretty wicked, permanent paper and wood glue. Same as with most liquid glues, if you make it too thin, you have to weigh it down for a few minutes, so that it doesn't warp the paper. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Flat Paper Bows for Shipped Packages Do you have to mail gifts and don't want the bows to be mashed, yet don't want to leave them "plain?" Cut out pictures of pretty bows or make flat "bows" and "ribbons" out of construction paper and glue them on. You could play with this idea and have creative fun with it.

An extremely shy fellow once brought his date a bouquet of flowers. She threw her arms around him and kissed him long and hard. After the kiss, he turned and bolted for the door. She exclaimed, "Oh! I'm sorry. I didn't mean to offend you." "You didn't!" he replied. "I'm just going to run to the the cemetery to get more flowers!"

Thanks to Bill for this story: Last year at Christmas time, I dressed up in my Santa suit and after greeting my children, my wife asked the kids if they wanted to take Santa to a relative's house. They said yes. So I got in the minivan and went to the relative's house. While at their house, my son started misbehaving, so I said in the most bass voice I could muster. "Son, you better behave or Santa won't bring you any presents." My innocent 5 y/o son turned to my wife and said, "Mommy, Santa is walking home!"
