Thanks to all who responded about the voting problems!
I wrote to Lewis at the Ezinefinder. He rarely responds,
but usually just works on problems, when there are a certain
nuber of reports. That seems to be the norm with Mac 
server administrators. Lewis is no exception.

For some silly reason, Mac server administrators seem to 
view any problem report as an attack on their cult and take 
it very personal. Well, if you don't get confirmation requests
today either, let me know and I'll write to him again.

You CAN avoid the confirmation requests, if you register at 
the EzineFinder. When you do that, it plants a one month 
cookie in your browser. Don't worry, that cookie does not 
have your bra size or weight or age. It just has your "pass key"
to get through to voting without the need for a confirmation email.
And in a month, that cookie crumbles. So, use a simple user
name and password. You have to put it in every month.
Of course, if you have RoboForm, then it will remember the
user name and password for you.

If you have not got it yet, I highly recommend it! You can even
use RoboForm to sync your passwords between different computers,
for eample desktop at work and laptop at home. Quite civilized!

Have FUN!

Doug went to the eye doctor for an examination because he was having trouble reading the newspaper. "Now that you're over 40," the doctor told him, "you've developed a condition called 'presbyopia,' in which the lens of your eye can no longer focus as well as it used to." Seeing his worried look, the doctor tried to be upbeat. "Con- gratulations!" he said. "You're now officially a presbyope!" Doug leaned over and asked seriously, "If that means I'm no longer a Roman Catholic, and I don't have to go to Confession any more?"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Mallory Renee Mims, 22, Orond Beach, Florida Lo-Jack foiled insurance fraud LoJack busts man who reported car stolen HESPERIA, Calif. (UPI) -- A California man was arrested for insurance fraud when the security system in a vehicle he reported stolen led police to where he allegedly hid the car. Ricardo Felix, 31, is accused of concealing the vehicle behind a family member's home, and then reporting it stolen to Huntington police and his insurance company, the Daily Press of Victorville, Calif., reported Monday. Victor Valley police said Saturday they received a LoJack notification of the location of the vehicle and tracked it to the home in Hesperia. Authorities detained four people in the home and notified Felix about the discovery of the vehicle. Investigators later learned Felix allegedly conspired with the family members to hide the vehicle, not knowing it was equipped with the LoJack system, Hesperia police spokeswoman Sue Rose told the Daily Press. Felix was being held on $25,000 bail for alleged insurance fraud and grand theft auto. Prosecutors office were considering filing charges against the alleged conspirators, the newspaper said.
Tech Support Pits: From: Tina Re: Solar lights Dear Webby This is not about computers or the Internet, but sorta electrical. You must have seen those little solar garden lights. Would they work as night lights inside a house? Thanks Tina Dear Tina Most of them are not really intended for lighting in a specific direction, but to just look pretty in all directions. If you take the milky diffuser off them, and make a small parabolic mirror with aluminum foil, it can light a patch of floor or stairs jst barely enough. Since they are cheap, $1 - $2, you can use a bunch of them shining at critical spots like steps or stairs. They don't need to be outside in direct sunlight, but indoors should be in a reasonably well lit area. The main advantage of them is that they will work fine during power outages. The disadvantage is that the amount of light they produce, is very low. They are cheap enough, that you can easily experiment and see if they produce enough light for you. Have FUN! DearWebby

Thanks to Frank for this: No one is more cautious than a first-time parent. After our daughter was big enough to ride on the back of my bicycle, I bought a special carrier with a seat belt and got her a little helmet. The day of the first ride I put her in the seat, double- checked all the equipment, wheeled the bike to the end of the driveway, carefully looked both ways and, swinging my leg up over the back, kicked her right in the head, lost my balance, tipped over, with her ending up in the rose bush, and me in the algae slime covered lily pond. She didn't cry, but because of the hysterical screaming laughter from mom was quite confused about the whole thing, and it took her a few seconds before she cheered up and yelled: "Do it again, daddy!"

Five doctors went duck hunting one day. Included in the group were a general practice (GP) physician, a pediatrician, a psychiatrist, a surgeon and a pathologist. A bird came winging overhead. The first to react was the GP who raised his shotgun, but then hesitated. "I'm not quite sure it's a duck," he said, "I think that I will have to get a second opinion." And of course by that time, the bird was long gone. Another bird appeared in the sky thereafter. This time, the pediatrician drew a bead on it. He too, however, was unsure if it was really a duck in his sights and besides, it might have babies. "I'll have to do some more investigations," he muttered, as the creature made good its escape. Next to spy a bird flying was the sharp-eyed psychiatrist. Shotgun shouldered, he was more certain of his intended prey's identity. "Now, I know it's a duck, but does it know it's a duck?" The fortunate bird disappeared while the fellow wrestled with this dilemma. Finally, a fourth fowl sped past and this time the surgeon's weapon pointed skywards. BOOM!! The surgeon lowered his smoking gun and turned nonchalantly to the pathologist beside him. "Go see if that was a duck, will you?"

The CEO was scheduled to speak at an important convention, so he asked one of his employees to write him a punchy, 20-minute speech. When the CEO returned from the big event, he was furious. "What's the idea of writing me an hour-long speech?" he demanded to know. "Half the audience walked out before I finished." The employee was baffled. "I wrote you a 20-minute speech," he replied. "I also gave you the two extra copies you asked for."
