Good Morning,  !
Today is Sunday, July 24

The most asked about buzz word this month is "cloud computing".
Am I ready for cloud computing?
Well, I have been doing it since about 1994. 
What's the big deal?
Well, it seems to be a big deal when Microsoft or Google are 
involved. I agree, Google Docs and Google spreadsheets are
going to be quite neat, some day. You can already have a
very basic spreadsheet on the cloud, and have a few people
on different locations mess with it. 

"Ya mean just like PowWow Draw 20 years ago, where people
in different locations could work on the same presentation?"
Yes, Gramma, just like that, only now owned and promoted 
by big name corporations.

Wikipedia is another example of cloud computing. People from
different locations can add to documents or edit and correct them.

Cloud computing is more or less just shifting an office LAN into
a WAN (Wide Area Network).

The Internet Postcards, that we have been providing since 1994,
are "on the cloud". People visit the card sites, select pictures,
music, poetry, compose a message and send the card off to 
somebody, without ever downloading any file or data into the
computer, that they are using. The recipient then gets a pick-up
notice and goes to view the postcard on the net.
That is true cloud computing, just withhout confusing buzz words.

Have FUN!

"Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own" --- Robert A. Heinlein "The difference between a job and a career is the difference between forty and sixty hours a week." --- Robert Frost
One of my first assignments on a summer job at an auto-body shop was a car needing a new fender and some door repairs. I spent hours doing a perfect job, but when the owner came to pick it up, he wasn't pleased. "What's wrong?" I asked. Pointing to the side of the car, he complained about the paint not matching, uneven gaps between panels, and a host of other nitpicking little problems. He demanded an explanation and that it be re-done. "The repairs were to the other side," I noted. "You smashed in the passenger side, not the driver side. This side I only hosed off some of the dirt."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to John Onak, 49, in Houston, Texas Perp kept Driving After Hitting, Killing Pedestrian (Who Crashed Through Windshield Into His Front Seat) The Houston man, 49, was charged in connection with a collision early this morning that resulted in the death of a 32-year-old man, who had exited his Ford Explorer after it broke down on a freeway. The victim was struck by Onak’s Mazda around 12:30 AM as he sought to cross the roadway. Onak, police reported, did not stop driving, despite the fact that the victim “went through the front windshield and came to a rest in the front passenger seat of the Mazda.” Onak, pictured in the above mug shot, was later stopped by a cop who noticed that the vehicle “had extensive front-end damage.” And that there was a dead guy riding shotgun. “The driver advised the deputy that he had hit something on the freeway but was not aware the victim was lying in the passenger seat,” according to a Houston Police Department press release. “Onak was believed to be under the influence and a mandatory blood draw was taken.” Onak was charged with felony accident involving injury, though the investigation is continuing and additional charges could be forthcoming.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Fanny Re: Uninstall programs on W7 Dear Webby Windows 7 would not be so bad, if the dummies had not hid everything in different places. Is there ANY reason at all for moving the gas pedal into the ashtray and the brake behind the rear view mirror? Is there ANY reason for doing that, aside from proving they are user-hostile arsehoes and know the sheeple let them get away with it? And where the heck did they hide Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs ? Fanny Dear Fanny I feel the same way about Windows 7. That is why Vista was such a failure. They moved stuff around without any reason whatsoever, and annoyed everybody. To dump a program go to Control Panel All Control Panel Items Programs and Features Expect having to reboot after un-installing programs. W7 is a bit too flakey to cope with that without rebooting, so save and close everything else, before uninstalling any program. By the way, was that a typo, or is that a new description of the makers of W7 ? Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Reuse Salt Pour Spout With Canning Jars When finished with an empty cardboard salt container, cut the whole round top piece off and measure to fit a canning jar ring. Trace and cut with the flat part with scissors to fit a pint canning jar. Fill the jar with sugar, then cut a second one from a second empty salt container for non-dairy coffee creamer. The pour spouts make for easy access to your sugar and creamer. *If desired, half pint jars can be used instead of pint jars. Source: my grandmother By Monica from Cortez, CO http://www.thriftyfun.com/ http://www.thriftyfun.com/ No new tip today, so I'll add my contribution to this one. You can get "Sugar In The Raw" in a tubular salt container style cardboard dispenser, with a rotating top suitable for sprinkling, fast dispensing and refilling. When you turn it far enough, you can insert a finger size funnel and refill it easily from a bag. If you paint the cardboard with an acrylic or enamel paint or varnish, that makes it washable and it will last you a lifetime. I don't remember how much I paid for that sugar container twenty or so years ago, but I am sure it was a lot less than a glass and chrome sugar dispenser. Have FUN!

I'm a counsellor who helps coordinate support groups for visually-impaired adults. Many participants have a condition known as macular degeneration, which makes it difficult for them to distinguish facial features. I had just been assigned to a new group and was introducing myself. Knowing that many in the group would not be able to see me well, I jokingly said, "For those of you who can't see me, I've been told that I look like a cross between Paul Newman and Robert Redford." Immediately, one woman called out, "We're not THAT blind!"

Thanks to Earl for this one: I had been teaching my seventh-graders about World War II, and a test question was, "What was the largest amphibious assault of all time?" Expecting to see "the D-Day invasion" as the answer, I found instead on one paper, "Moses and the plague of frogs."
