Windows 7 slow at sorting 



Good Morning,  !
Today is Monday, July 2

While I was eating a late supper and waiting for the Canada 
Day fireworks to start, I noticed some cumulus clouds in 
the North. At 10:45 the sky in the North is not completely 
dark. At first I thought some people were impatient and 
setting off their fireworks early, but then realized, the 
flashes, that lit up the clouds were too far away, and the
way they lit up the clouds, they were much too big for 
fireworks.

On closer inspection I figured it out, there was a hectic
lightning storm going on about 30 miles away.

When the fireworks started, they were against a backdrop
of clouds lit from the inside by lightning. Quite a unique
experience!

Have FUN!

A man and his wife were having an argument about who should brew the coffee each morning. The wife said, "You should do it, because you get up first, and then we don't have to wait as long to get our coffee." The husband said, " You are in charge of the cooking around here and you should do it, because that is your job, and I can just wait for my coffee." Wife replies, "No you should do it, and besides it is in the Bible that the man should do the coffee." Husband replies, " I can't believe that, show me." So she fetched the Bible, and opened the New Testament and shows him at the top of several pages, that it indeed says . "HEBREWS"

A politician hurries into the emergency room late one night with the tip of her index finger shot off. "How did this happen?" the emergency room doctor asked her. "Well, I was trying to commit suicide," the politician replied. "What?" sputtered the doctor? "You tried to commit suicide by shooting your finger off?" "No, Silly!" the politician said. "First I put the gun to my chest, and I thought: I just paid $3,000.00 for these breast implants, I'm not shooting myself in the chest." "So then?" asked the doctor. "Then I put the gun in my mouth, and I thought: I just paid $4000.00 to get my teeth straightened, I'm not shooting myself in the mouth." "So then?" "Then I put the gun to my ear, and I thought: This is going to make a loud noise. So I put my finger in the other ear before I pulled the trigger."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Michael Lee, St. Augustine, Florida Michael Lee Is Here To "Save The Beach" - Everybody Duck! Michael James Lee, a 45-year-old St. Augustine man was jailed Monday after he allegedly vowed to save a local beach by waving a gun around at a busy intersection. According to the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office, deputies were dispatched after receiving complaints that a man was waving a gun in the air near a local beach. When officers arrived on the scene, they found him on his bicycle in the middle of an intersection, still waiving the gun. Witnesses told investigators that Lee was on a quest to "Save the beach." When the officer told Lee to show his hands, he told them that he was wielding a fake, plastic gun. He then grabbed it by the barrel and threw it in the grass on the shoulder of the road. Deputies confirmed that the gun was indeed plastic, but stated that it looked real. Lee was frisked and found to be in possession of three large knives. Lee admitted that he "needed to be arrested" because it was a "stupid thing to do". When officers asked why he chose to wave a gun in a public place, Lee could not offer an explanation. Lee was booked into jail and charged with disorderly conduct.
Tech Support Pits: From: Eric Re: Slow file sort oin W7 Dear Webby Sorting files, for example by Date instead of name, is ridiculously slow on Windows 7. Resorting the same folder on XP takes two seconds or less, but on Windows 7 it takes a minute or sometimes a lot more than that even. Yeah, I know you never recommended W7, but is there anything at all that I can do to make it re-sort in a reasonable time? Eric Dear Eric Open the File Explorer, highlight a drive, select Properties and in there take the checkmark OFF from "Allow the files on this drive to have contents indexed in addition to their properties." Unless you have a new and near empty machine, a Quad Processor and 16 GB of RAM, keep that checkmark off. Windows 7 simply can't handle that in a reasonable amount of time. If you want the contents indexed, put Linux onto a small partition and use linux for that. By the way, you CAN run Linux from a CD or even a USB thumbdrive or camera chip. Have FUN! DearWebby

>From Marty My daughter's third-grade teacher had assigned the children to write a story titled "My Biggest Surprise." Not until the end of the school year did we see Marina's work. It read: "I got up this morning and I ran into Mommy and Daddy's bed and hopped in. But it wasn't Mommy at all. It was Mrs. Del Campo!" What her essay neglected to say was that we had called Mrs. Del Campo late at night to stay with our children while I took my wife to the hospital to have our third child.
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Mark Back of Drawers When Moving If you plan to refinish or move a dresser, chest, or any furniture with more than a couple of drawers; an easy way to remember where each drawer goes is mark on the back of the drawer with a marker pen with "A", "B", "C", "D" or "1", "2", "3", "4". On the inside, after removing the drawer write the corresponding letter or number in the opening. This will not show on the outside and will come in handy the next time you have to move the furniture. Some drawers appear to be the same size until you try to replace them and they don't seem to fit.

At work, Bob noticed that the name of an employee was the same as an old friend. He found the man's e-mail address and sent him a message. When Bpb received a reply, he was insulted and fired back another e-mail: "I have put on some weight, but I didn't realize it was that noticeable." His friend's hastily typed message, with an apparent typo, had read: "Hi, Ron. I didn't know you worked here, but I did see a gut that looked like you in the cafeteria."
