Lately there has been a lot of complaining about Skype. 
The rash of forced updates since mycrsoft bought it for an
estimated 32 years worth of income from it, just to keep it
out of the hands of Cisco and Google, did not impress 
anybody. It worked, so why mess with it, especially when the
messing does not produce any visible improvement?

Skype IS handy, and it already does about 80% of what 
PowWow used to do 15 years ago on 486 machines with 
20 MB of RAM, but like most people, I wish they stopped
the updates without noticable changes or explanation, and
left it alone until they figured out how to run it on as little
memory or processing power as Google Chat.

Have FUN!

A famed explorer was invited to Dartmouth to tell of his adventures in the African jungle. "Can you imagine," he demanded, "people so primitive that they love to eat the embryo of certain birds, and slices from the belly of certain animals? And grind up grass seed, make it into a paste, burn it over a fire, then smear it with a greasy mess they extract from the mammary fluid of certain other animals?" When the students looked startled by such barbarism, the explorer added softly, "What I've been describing, of course, is a breakfast of bacon and eggs and buttered toast."

This is a story about four people named: Everybody, Somebody, Anybody, and Nobody. There was an important job to be done and Everybody was asked to do it. Everybody was sure Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it. Somebody got angry about that, because it was Everybody's job. Everybody thought Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn't do it! It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done!

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Yukari Mihamae, 61, from Longmont, Colorado Woman Groped TSA Agent's Breast PHOENIX - We hear a lot of complaints about security screeners groping airline passengers. But now, a Colorado woman is accused of putting her hands on a TSA agent at Sky Harbor International Airport in Phoenix. Court records show 61-year-old Yukari Mihamae grabbed the left breast of the female agent Thursday at the Terminal 4 checkpoint. Police say she squeezed and twisted the agent's breast with both hands. Officers say Mihamae admitted to the crime. There's no word why she touched the agent. Mihamae now faces a felony count of sexual abuse. She was released from jail on Friday morning. According to court records, she lives in Longmont, Colorado and is self-employed.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Dianne Re: Change font and size in Skype Dear Webby How do you change the font and size in Skype? Since Microslop bought it and forced a bunch of unwanted updates, the fonts have shrunk and can't be fixed. Considering that it is just a re-warmed partial copy of PowWow, that we used in the early and mid 90's, that is kinda pathetic. Hopefully you can figger it out! Thanks Dianne Dear Dianne I agree, PowWow was great, and was way more advanced 15 years ago than Skype is now. It is too bad that, when ICQ came out of Israel with far superior marketing, PowWow lost out. By the way, ICQ was bought by AOL in the late 90's and sold to the Russian Mail.RU group last April. But I digress. You can NOT change font colors and backgrounds in Skype like you did with PowWow, no matter what you do. Forget high energy or easy reading color combos. Forget romantic color combos too! The Skype software was written by three guys in Estonia. Apparently they don't do that sorta thing in Estonia. However, you CAN change the font face and font size, if you follow this rignarole: Tools Options IM & Sms IM Appearance Change font Have FUN! DearWebby

Two hunters were dragging their dead deer back to their car. Another hunter approached pulling his along too. "Hey, I don't want to tell you how to do something... but I can tell you that it's much easier if you drag the deer in the other direction. Then the antlers won't dig into the ground." After the third hunter left, the two decided to try it. A little while later one hunter said to the other, "You know, that guy was right. This is a lot easier!" "Yeah," the other added, "but we're getting farther and farther away from the truck."
Daily tip from Spray Inside of Tin Foil When Baking Before you cover your baking items with foil, spray the side of the foil that touches the food with non-stick cooking spray. No more sticking to the foil and no more ruining your pretty dish. By cschatz from Springville, AL Did you ever look at the price of that cooking spray, and figure out how much you pay per gram or ounce? Totally ridiculous! I use an ancient spray bottle, I think it originally was an Amway mix and spray bottle in the 80's, and put regular olive oil into it. As long as it is kept reasonably warm on a top shelf, that old sprayer produces a nice and even mist, that works just as well as any of that expensive non-stick spray. Whenever an oil bottle is almost empty, I dump it into my sprayer. Just experiment with cleaned out pistol-grip sprayers, until you find a keeper, that does well with oil, and label or paint it, so that nobody uses it for cleaning purposes. Olive oil makes vinyl floors awfully slippery! Have FUN! DearWebby Check out ThriftyFun's Blog at also has a newsletter.

Thanks to Gale for this one: During a visit to a military medical clinic, I was sent to the lab to have blood drawn. The technician there was friendly and mentioned that his mood improved every day because he was due to leave the service in two months. As he applied the tourniquet on my arm, he told me that taking the blood wouldn't hurt much. Then, noticing my Air Force T-shirt he asked me what my husband did. When I replied that he was a recruiter, the technician smiled slyly and said, "This might hurt a little more than I thought."

Tom had this problem of getting up late in the morning and was always late for work. His boss was mad at him and threatened to fire him if he didn't do something about it. So Tom went to his doctor who gave him a pill and told him to take it before he went to bed. That night, Tom slept well and in fact beat, the alarm in the morning. He had a leisurely breakfast and drove cheerfully to work. "Boss", he said, "The pill actually worked!" "That's fine" said the boss, "But where were you Friday and Monday?"
