Yeah, you have seen it there in the left side margin for 
the last 17 years or so, but just ignored it. Well, it is 
still there.

If you have been wondering if this weeks Windows bug fix was
sabotaging your machine, you were right. It did. 

It messed with your carefully arranged start-up sequence.
Just arrange all the icons for the programs, that you used 
to have starting automatically, in one corner of the desktop,
and manually start them. Possibly the problem will be fixed
in a future bug-fix. Don't count on it, though.

If you have stalled with this weeks bug-fix, deny it. 
You are better off without it.

Have FUN!

"He who seeks a friend without fault remains without." --- Old Turkish Proverb "Don't marry for money; you can borrow it cheaper." --- Scottish Proverb
A man was driving to work when a car ran a stop sign, hit his car broadside, and knocked him cold. The other car slid into a gas pump and caused a minor fire. Passersby pulled him from the wreck and revived him. He began a terrific struggle and had to be tranquilized by the medics. Later, when he was calm, they asked him why he struggled so much. He said, "I remember the impact, then nothing. I woke up on a concrete slab, saw a lot of fire and behind it a huge 'HELL' sign. Until somebody moved, I did not realize that there was an 'S'!" in front of the "HELL".

A Kindergarten teacher was observing her classroom of children while they were drawing. She would occasionally walk around to see each child's work. As she got to one little girl who was working diligently, she asked what the drawing was. The girl replied, "I'm drawing God." The teacher paused and said, "But no one knows what God looks like." Without missing a beat, or looking up from her drawing, the girl replied, "They will in a minute."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Dameka L. Bryant, 37 Half naked fight about ribs Police said an argument over some barbeque Monday night resulted in fighting and property damage. According to Iowa City Police criminal complaints, officers were called to 1231 Sandusky Drive at 11:25 p.m. Monday for a report of an argument outside. Officers said they found a woman, later identified as 37-year-old Dameka L. Bryant, of 1958 Broadway St., standing in the driveway of the residence wearing only her bra and panties. Police said the residents of the home said Bryant had returned after leaving earlier from a barbeque. The residents told police Bryant became angry about the residents eating what she considered her barbecue ribs. The residents allegedly told Bryant to leave, at which point she kicked two holes in the drywall and threatened to beat them up. Police said Bryant ended up outside the residence after a scuffle inside. Bryant showed signs of intoxication, but would not consent to a breath test, police said. Bryant was placed under arrest for fifth-degree criminal mischief and public intoxication. Police said Bryant tried to pull away from officers after being handcuffed and kicked at the officers. She also refused to put her feet inside the squad car and had to be pulled in from the opposite side. Bryant was charged with interference with official acts for resisting with officers. Bryant was released on her own recognizance Tuesday morning.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Wayne Re: Moving programs I wish to take your advise on keeping the "c" drive lean (10 gigs)? But my laptop is over a year old and I don't know how to transfer programs, file, etc to my external hd or my formatted drive. Help? Dear Wayne Files, that you produced or collected, are easy. You can just drag them over there. Programs are tricky, unless you have Laplink Mover. Laplink Mover is made to migrate programs from one machine to another without any cussing and swearing. It is not quite free, but well worth it, if you want to avoid the cussing and worrying. If you don't have Laplink Mover, first you have to find the registration numbers, CD or download file. Once you have all that stuff ready, install it on the new destination, as if you were moving to a new computer. When it is working right at the new location, then you can un-install it at the old location. That is quite tedious, I know. Until you do that, just move the files, that you have produced or collected, to other drives, and install any new program, that you acquire in the future, onto the other drives. By the way, I started using Laplink Mover in the late 80's, when I was a mobile troubleshooter, like the geek squad is nowadays. In those days I used Laplink Mover and a special cable provided by Laplink to move and install programs via the printer ports of computers. Have FUN! DearWebby

A Sunday school teacher was discussing the Ten Commandments with her five and six year olds. After explaining the commandment to "honour" thy Father and thy Mother, she asked, "Is there a commandment that teaches us how to treat our brothers and sisters?" Without missing a beat one little boy (the oldest of a family) answered, "Thou shall not kill."

Sarah's a little girl was sitting and watching her mother do the dishes at the kitchen sink. She suddenly noticed that her mother had several strands of white hair sticking out in contrast on her brunette head. She looked at her mother and inquisitively asked, "Why are some of your hairs white, Mom?" Sarah replied, "Well, every time that you do something wrong and make me cry or unhappy, one of my hairs turns white." The little girl thought about this revelation for a while and then said, "Momma, how come ALL of grandma's hairs are white? What did you do?"

The Sunday School teacher asked her students to draw a picture of their favorite Old Testament story, and as she moved around the class, she saw there were many wonderful drawings being done. Then she came across Little Johnny who had drawn a old man driving an old car. In the back seat, there were two passengers, both scantily dressed. "It's a lovely picture," said the teacher, "but which story does it tell?" Little Johnny seemed surprised at the question. "Well," he said "that's a Plymoth Fury like Uncle Ted's got up on blocks in his yard. And it says in the Bible that God drove Adam and Eve out of the paradise in a Fury!"
