Force copying without stopping due to problems 



Zoom the font size for best readability  

Good Morning,  !
Today is Tuesday, September 27

By the time you are reading this, I will be on the road to
Foothills Hospital on the far side of Calgary. They want 
to do a whole bunch of fancy testing, from MRI to injecting
me with a radioactive dye to measure exactly how much
blood my heart pumps per stroke. 

One of the tests supposedly has me instrumented for 16 EKG
measurement points and hiking the hallways of the hospital 
"for six minutes while accompanied by an escort". 
Yeah, sure.
I imagine the escort will be some old docs on an electric
golf cart, yelling at me to walk slower, but I am quite willing
to let them surprise me.

I'll tell you all about how it went tomorrow.

Have FUN!

A patient, while recovering in the hospital from a heart attack, met this over-zealous evangelist. After listening politely for over a half-hour on how thankful he should be to have been spared, and how he should repent at once, he was asked if all of his sins had flashed before his eyes during the heart attack. The patient responded, with a deliberately slurry and sleepy voice: "Don't be silly, the attack lasted only 6 hours! I just got to where I ducktaped that preacher's mouth, when it ended."

A family was having some people to dinner. At the table, the mother turned to her little daughter and said, "Dear, would you like to say the blessing?" "I wouldn't know what to say," replied the little girl, shyly. "Just say what you heard Mommy say." the woman said. Her daughter took a deep breath, bowed her head, and solemnly said, "Dear Lawd, why in he-all did I let Dave invite all these ungwatefull smobs to dinner again!?!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Andy Huynh, Nicholas Kalscheuer and Nicholas Fiumetto, all 19, in Covina, Cdalifornia Three Stooges Three Covina men are behind bars after they allegedly stole a 30-pack of Tecate beer from a market and attempted to escape but crashed a car and hit an employee who chased them, then one ran through a car wash and another left behind his ID. Andy Huynh, Nicholas Kalscheuer and Nicholas Fiumetto, all 19, were arrested Wednesday on charges of robbery, assault with a deadly weapon and resisting arrest, according to a Covina police report. Kalscheuer and Fiumetto entered the Baja Ranch Market about 3 p.m. Wednesday while Huynh remained behind the wheel of a car nearby. Inside the store, Fiumetto grabbed a 30-pack of beer and the two men ran out. Employees ran after the pair into the parking lot, grabbing and detaining Kalscheuer and later turning him over to police, according to the report. Fiumetto, meanwhile, threw the beer in the car and jumped in the front passenger seat. As Huynh pulled out, an employee jumped on the hood of the car to avoid getting run over. Huynh careened through the parking lot, crashing against a curb and sending the employee onto the pavement, scraping his arms in the fall, according to the report. Huynh and Fiumetto ran off. Fiumetto climbed a fence and ran into the Citrus Car Wash next door. Pepe Pinedo, the car wash manager, was standing amid drying cars when he saw Fiumetto, pursued by two officers, run into the car wash tunnel. At the time, "there were two cars being washed in the tunnel," Pinedo said. "He got into the wash and the rollers and got all wet." "By the time, he came out of the car wash, the officer was already on the other end of the tunnel," he continued. "It was kind of funny. It was a nice show." Huynh ran off but had left his wallet and identification in the car. Police officers contacted him later and convinced him to turn himself in. All three men are expected to be arraigned in court Friday. Until then, they are being held in Covina City Jail in lieu of $50,000 bail.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Trudy Re: Force copying Dear Webby When I try copying my mail directory over to the machine that has the CD burner, the Windows Explorer keeps tripping up on all kinds of silly things, and of course each time aborts the copying. This is driving me absolutely nuts! Is there a way to do it from the DOS command line? Trudy Dear Trudy That problem goes back a lot further than Windows and is a bug in the copy command. Somebody forgot to put in a way to recover from an error, just list it and get on with the job. Incidentally, that is one of the major reasons DOS or Windows never got mission critical certification. Luckily around the time of DOS 2 somebody ported the UNIX xcopy command eo DOS and Microsoft later adopted it very quietly. Even though it works well, to this day there are very few people that seem to know and use it. As is common with UNIX commands, xcopy has about two dozen "switches" to make it do exactly what you want. If you want to see and print all of the options, go to the command line: START RUN cmd then type xcopy /? You might want to print out the list of switches, or write your favorite ones on a piece of tape on the monitor rim, like a lot of pros do. To copy a directory (folder) and it's subdirectories without stopping for machine specific config files, which you don't want to copy or overwrite anyway, and copy only those files which are newer on the source than the destination, copy hidden and system files, overwrite Read-Only files, not show the list of files as they scroll down the screen, and YES, dangit, copy the stuff without any silly prompts, then use these switches: xcopy source destination /S /V /C /H /Q /R /Y You don't have to be at the source or the destination for that to work. You can have that command in a text file with a .bat extension, and hae that file in your toolbox folder, or even on your desktop. Like all DOS commands, xcopy works fine in bats. You can put that line into a batchfile and make a desktop shortcut icon to it. That way you simply click on that shortcut icon and it wheelbarrows all the new or changed files in your mail directory AND it's subdirectories over to the machine with the CD burner, without any fuss whatsoever. Have FUN! DearWebby

The Wednesday-night church service coincided with the last day of hunting season. Our pastor asked who had bagged a deer. No one raised a hand. Puzzled, the pastor said, "I don't get it. Last Sunday many of you said you were missing because of hunting season. I had the whole congregation pray for your deer." One hunter groaned, "Well, it worked. They're all safe."

This woman goes into a funeral home to make arrangements for her husband's funeral. She tells the director that she wants her husband to be buried in a dark blue suit. He asks, "Wouldn't it just be easier to bury him in the black suit that he's wearing?" But she insists that it must be a blue suit and gives him a blank check to buy one. When she comes back for the wake, she sees her husband in the coffin and he is wearing a beautiful blue suit. She tells the director how much she loves the suit and asks how much it cost. He says, "Actually, it didn't cost much. The funniest thing happened. As soon as you left, another corpse was brought in, this one wearing a blue suit. I noticed that they were about the same size, and asked the other widow if she would mind if her husband were buried in a black suit. She said that was fine with her. So... I switched the heads. The fee for that is only $750."

My sister, went to the department store to check out the bridal registry of our niece whose wedding was coming up soon. When my sister returned from the store, she tossed the gift list on a table and declared, "I think she's too young to get married." "Why do you say that?" I asked. "Because," she said, "they've registered for Nintendo games."
