Good Morning,  !
Today is Tuesday, October 11

It seems Yahoo/ATT/sbcglobal has succeeded in annoying 
quite a few people sufficiently, that they are moving to 
other email providers. Considering the huge number
of good alternatives, that should not be any hardship.

Have FUN!

A flight attendant for a major airline, watched one day as a passenger hopelessly overloaded with bags tried to stuff his belongings in the overhead bin of the plane. Finally, she informed him that he would have to check the oversized luggage. "When I fly other airlines," he said irritably, "I never have this problem." She smiled and said, "Sir, when you fly other airlines, I don't have this problem either."

A man was reading the paper when an ad caught his eye: $100 Porsche! New! The man thought that it was very unusual to sell a Porsche for $100, and he thought it might be a joke or a typo. However, he was intrigued and soon decided it was worth a shot. He went to the lady's house and sure enough, she had an almost brand new Porsche. "Wow!" the man said. "Can I take it for a test drive?" Unlike what he expected, the man found that the car ran perfectly and took it back to the lady's house. "Why are you selling me this great Porsche for only $100?" "My husband just ran off with his secretary, and he told me I could have the house and the furniture as long as I sold his Porsche and sent him the money."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Britnay Jackson, 19, Joshua Best, 22, and Nikhil Rajniel Lal,19, Thieves left car on the train tracks PORTLAND, Ore. - Police were able to track down the owners of a car that was abandoned on the MAX tracks and struck by a train. Around 10 a.m. Tuesday when some people staying at the Travelodge at 949 E. Burnside Street woke up to find that several items were missing from their room, including the keys to a 1999 Subaru Legacy. Earlier that morning, around 2 a.m., a MAX train struck the car near 118th and E. Burnside Street where it had been abandoned on the tracks. No one was hurt - the car was empty and there were just a few people on the train at that early hour. The car was pulled off the tracks and train service resumed. Neither the train nor the tracks were damaged in any way, but the front of the Subaru is totalled. The passenger compartment was miraculously intact and undamaged. Detectives later linked the car to the robbery at the Travelodge. They then tracked down the suspects using surveillance video from the motel, which showed the three coming and going from a different room. Police simply went to that room and took them into custody. The suspects who were arrested are 19-year-old Britnay Jackson, 19-year-old Nikhil Rajniel Lal and 22-year-old Joshua Best. All three face charges in connection with the motel room burglary and Lal and Best face additional charges in connection with the theft of the car. They were booked into the Multnomah County Jail and will be arraigned in court on Wednesday.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Jackie Re: Difference between POP and webmail Dear Webby What is the difference between POP and webmail? I know, there are lots of longwinded explanations on the web, but they go way over my head. I need your type of explanation. Jackie Dear Jackie Actually, there are three types of mail: POP (or POP3), IMAP, and Webmail. POP is the oldest type, from the days when you paid by the minute for Internet access, and just quickly downloaded your email, disconnected, and processed your mail while off-line, including writing responses and new email, then briefly went online again to fire off all the prepared email. The key is that the mail is downloaded into your computer, and processed on your computer with your favorite email program. Naturally, you don't have to go off-line any more, unless you are traveling and just going online with your laptop at different airpot lounges and airplanes. WebMail is the opposite. There everything stays on the server. Examples are Squirrel Mail, Hotmail, Yahoo Mail, etc. You don't even need your own computer. You can just visit cyber-cafes and use their computer. Nothing gets downloaded into that computer, unless you deliberately download a file to burn it onto a CD or thumb-drive. You have to use the email program of that particular email provider, for example Hotmail or Yahoo mail, and if they decide to make some drastic changes, tough luck. That is YOUR problem. IMAP is like POP in that you can use the email program of your choice. However, the files by default stay on the server, as if it was Webmail. The reason for that is so that you can read and answer mail from work, with the work machine, but keep the mail on the server, until you get home and download them like POP email onto the home machine. Decent email providers will give you a choice and let you set your mail to POP, IMAP or Webmail. The better ones, likeWebby, even automate it. You can do your mail with Webmail AND with POP and IMAP. For example, check your mail from a friend's place with webmail, and leave everything on the server, then haul it down with Eudora or Outlook or whatever, when you get home. Gmail needs to be set to enable POP. However, it only takes a moment and is not a big deal at all. Click on the gear in the right top corner, Click Forwarding and POP/IMAP Select Enable POP for all mail or Enable POP for mail that arrives from now on. Configure your POP program, if necessary, and click Save Changes. After that, you can process your Gmail with any full featured email program of your choice. And there certainly is a huge pile of different email programs to choose from. Email programs are like religions. Some people get right defensive and fanatic about them, especially when they realize, that their program is a flakey nuisance, but they are scared to convert to something else. It is important to keep in mind, once you have switched to POP or IMAP, you are no longer a hostage of an email provider or ISP. You can change ISPs and email providers without losing any email, because now your email and your email program is on your computer. Configure your POP client* and click Save Changes. Have FUN!

A college student wrote a letter home: Dear folks, I feel miserable because I have to keep writing for money. I feel ashamed and unhappy to have to ask for another hundred, but every cell in my body rebels. I beg on bended knee that you forgive me. Your son, Marvin. P.S. I felt so terrible I ran after the mailman who picked this up in the box at the corner. I wanted to take this letter and burn it. I prayed that I could get it back. But it was too late. A few days later he received a letter from his father. It said, "Your prayers were answered. Your phony letter did not arrive."
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Reuse Margarine Tub as Sprinkle Container A new use for reusing margarine tubs. Get out your trusty old hole punch for this one. After washing the tub and lid, punch a few holes along the rim of the lid to make a sprinkle container. We use ours for sprinkling cinnamon-sugar on the kids' morning toast. They love to use it, which saves me a bit of time, as well!

My friend wanted a boat more than anything. His wife kept refusing, but he bought one anyway. "I'll tell you what," he told her. "In the spirit of compromise, why don't you name the boat?" Being a good sport, she accepted. When her husband went to the dock for his maiden voyage, this is the name he saw painted on the side: "For Sale."

Mr. Doggins was having trouble getting his neighbor to keep his chickens fenced in. The birds were ruining his prize winning flower beds. The neighbor told Doggins that the chickens had the right to go where they wanted. Two weeks later, a friend visited Doggins and noticed his flower beds were doing great. The flowers were even beginning to bloom! The friend asked, "How did you get your neighbor to keep his hens in his own yard?" Doggins said, "Easy! One night I hid a dozen eggs under a bush by my flower bed. The next day I let my neighbor see me gather them. I haven't been bothered since."
