Happy Father's Day!

Thanks Gordon!

The enthusiasm over FireFox 4 seems to have backfired.
Too many people jumped onto it too quickly. Sure, it is
faster, but it crashes frequently. 

Luckily it is quite painless to go back to stable versions.
3.6.17 is just as fast, but has the same klutzy placement 
of the HOME and REFRESH icons.

3.6.15 is a tiny bit slower, but has the icons and tabs 
and everything, where you expect them to be.
The exact method for reverting to stable versions is
in the Tech Support Pits.

Have FUN!

A British friend of mine once found himself at a dinner party sitting next to an attractive American woman. The conversation turned to cricket, and the woman asked my friend to explain the game. He agreed and embarked on a lengthy explanation of the mysteries of "silly mid-on," "fine-leg," "googly," "chinaman" and the like. At the end he sat back, exhausted. The woman looked at him, shaking her head in wonderment, "That really is remarkable. And to think they do it all on horseback."
A man realizes he needs to buy a hearing aid, but he is unwilling to spend much money. "How much do they run?" he asks the clerk. "That depends," says the salesman. "They run from $2 to $20,000." "Let's see the $2 model," the customer says. The clerk puts the device around the man's neck. "You just stick this button in your ear and run this little wire down to your pocket," he says. "How does it work?" the customer asks. "For $2, it doesn't work," the salesman replies. "But when people see it on you, they'll talk louder."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Bryan J. Jens, 27, in Appleton, Wisconsin Passed out in drive-through for 5th DUI APPLETON An Appleton man was arrested on suspicion of fifth-offense drunken driving early Wednesday after passing out behind the wheel of his running vehicle in a fast food drive-through lane. Bryan J. Jens, 27, was charged Thursday in Outagamie County Court with felony drunken driving, marijuana possession, possession of drug paraphernalia and driving after revocation. Police were called to the Taco Bell at the intersection of Richmond Street and Northland Avenue just before 2:30 a.m. Wednesday. An officer knocked on Jens' window, but couldn't get his attention. When police finally got him to wake up, he turned up the volume on his car stereo and started bobbing his head to the music. Police commanded Jens to turn off his vehicle several times, "and he did not even acknowledge that they were in his presence," the complaint says. Blood test results weren't available, but the circumstances suggest a "significantly high blood alcohol concentration," Assistant Dist. Atty. Nicholas Bolz said. During the incident, Jens referred to a female officer as "baby" and "honey," the complaint says. When an officer asked Jens to submit to field sobriety tests he replied, "C'mon, we're not all stupid here. Do you even need to do these on me? Serious. C'mon." Police found the marijuana and drug paraphernalia during a search of his car. Court Commissioner Maureen Roberts Budiac ordered Jens held on a $5,000 cash bond. He'll return to court June 23 for further proceedings.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Frank Re: Can you revert from FireFox 4 back to stable versions? Dear Webby, Can you revert from FireFox 4 back to stable versions? Frank Dear Frank Yes, you can revert from FireFox 4 back to stable 3.x versions, if you follow these steps exactly. 1) Decide whether you want speed or comfort. 3.6.17 is just as fast as version 4, but does not crash every time you leave it alone for a few hours. However, it does have the same awkward icon placement as version 4. 3.6.15 is a tiny bit slower, but rock solid. It rarely locks up, and recovers gracefully. You can get download 3.6.17 from http://www.techspot.com/downloads/19-mozilla-firefox.html or 3.6.15 from http://www.oldapps.com/firefox.php?old_firefox=109 After you have safely downloaded the version of your choice, close FireFox with the Task Manager. ( CTRL ALT DEL ) Yes, rudely axe it, with all your 57 tabs open. Then go into the Control Panel, ADD / REMOVE Programs and remove FireFox. In the second panel it will ask you if you want your personal settings dumped too. Don't put a checkmark onto that. Once it has uninstalled FireFox 4, go to your download and install the version of your choice. 3.6.15 will start up smoothly, and offer to restore all your previously open tabs. 3.6.17 may have to be re-installed a second time, before it works smoothly, but then it too will restore all previously open tabs. Nothing is lost. Some of the add-ons don't work exactly the same in 3.6.x, for example if you use Color Tabs, they are not as brightly colored in 3.6.x, unless you fiddle and tune them a bit. Most, though, work just fine, as if you had never detoured to version 4 and back. Have FUN! DearWebby

"I noticed you always carry my photo in your handbag. That's very nice," Paul said to his wife one day. "Well," she says, "when there is a problem, no matter how impossible, I look at your picture and the problem always disappears." The man smiles. "You see how good I am for you?" he says. "Yes," she says. "I see your picture and say to myself, 'Compared to THAT, ahem challenge, the rest of life is a breeze.'"

The stockbroker was nervous about being in prison because his cellmate looked like a real thug. "Don't worry," the gruff looking fellow said, "I'm in here for a white collar crime too." "Well, that's a relief," sighed the stockbroker. "I was sent to prison for fraud and insider trading." "Oh nothing fancy like that for me," grinned the convict. "I just murdered a couple of priests and a shrink."

Groan Alert: One day in the forest, three animals were discussing who among them was the most powerful. "I am," said the hawk, "because I can fly and swoop down swiftly at my prey." "That's nothing," said the mountain lion, "I am not only fleet, but I have powerful teeth and claws." "I am the most powerful," said the skunk, "because with a flick of my tail, I can drive off the two of you." Just then a huge grizzly bear lumbered out of the forest and settled the debate by eating them all. . . . hawk, lion, and stinker.
