How to count all files on a drive 

Good Morning,  !
Today is Wednesday, July 11

The election time spamming has started. Some morons seem to
think I would be vulnerable to expertly crafted brainwash like
certain people produced during the last election to convince
the sheeple.

Blaming everything on Bush is a bit silly at this time. He 
may have been a country bumpkin, but at least he was sincere.
Why not blame everything on Reagan, or maybe Eisenhower?

I am not getting into politics, but I sure get my MailWasher
actively involved. Between now and the election, try to keep
phrases used by the brainwashers out of your emails.
MailWasher will dump those mails right on the server.

Quoting the sheeple herders will dump mail just as quickly
as if it was their spam. 

Keep in mind, I am not the only one allergic to brainwash 
and averse to spam. If you don't get answers to your emails, 
check to make sure you did not use certain phrases, that
are popular with the election spammers.

Have FUN!

Nah, to REALLY learn to cuss you have to mush sled dogs and haul firewood with them on steep creeks and rivers still mostly frozen over in early summer.
A husband read an article to his wife about how many words women use a day. 30,000 to a man's 15,000. The wife replied, "The reason has to be because we have to repeat everything to men. The husband then turned to his wife and asked, "What?"
The UnLocker Have you ever accidentally elbowed a new password into Windows and locked yourself out? Not yet? Or has a family member accidentally done that? Or the cat on her stroll over the keyboard? That can get extremely expensive, if you don't have the UnLocker. The Unlocker will get you back in there in 30 seconds. No fuss, no panic. Take the fear out of "Not Yet" with the UnLocker.

A couple drove down a country road for several miles, not saying a word. An earlier discussion had led to an argument and neither of them wanted to concede their position. As they passed a barnyard of mules, goats, and pigs, the husband asked sarcastically, "Relatives of yours?" "Yep," the wife replied, "in-laws."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Myia Cole, 30, in Tulsa, OK Jailed After Baby In Car Seat Found Upside Down In Middle Of Road Myia Natrice Cole, a 30-year-old Tulsa woman was jailed Saturday after she allegedly left her 11-month-old child in the middle of the street, face down in a car seat. According to Tulsa Police, Cole and the child's father, Clyde Jackson, reported the child missing around 9:30 p.m. When officers arrived at the scene, they found the parents to be extremely intoxicated, and unable to tell the officer where their child was last seen. Officers located a witness who claimed that she had picked Cole up earlier in the evening. The witness then directed officers to that location. When officers arrived at that location around midnight, they found a car seat lying face down in the middle of the street. When officers up-righted the car seat, they discovered that the child was still strapped inside. Investigators say the child was a mile and a half away from Cole's residence. The child had been sitting in the summer heat for nearly 3 hours and was dehydrated but otherwise unharmed. The child is now in the custody of the Department of Human Services. Jackson was not apprehended, but had just been released from jail on Friday in an unrelated case. Cole was booked into the Tulsa County Jail and charged with child endangerment. She is currently being held in lieu of a $25,000 bond. She also had active warrants for her arrest for failing to pay court costs totaling $7,965.34 in three other felony cases, including charges of possession of paraphernalia, failure to comply, and escape from a penal institution. She also had a warrant in regards to a misdemeanor public drunkenness. Most likely she had placed the baby into the car seat and placed the car seat onto the trunk or roof of the car, without the driver noticing it, and forgot about the baby.
Tech Support Pits: From: Erin Re: How do you count the files on a drive? Dear Webby, Is there a way to count all the files on my external USB drive? I don't see any way at all but you probably have some trick. Thanks Erin Dear Erin Yes, sure there is a trick, use DOS. That has worked long before Windows and still does. Click on START in the search field type cmd and hit ENTER. You will get a scary black screen with light grey writing. That is the raw command line, not sugar-coated or prettied up for gentle souls. If you want to get the number of files on the F: drive, type dir /s /T:c F:\ |find /c ":" and hit Enter. If you have a few Million files on the F: drive, nothing will happen for a while. It takes time to count all those files! Then suddenly, but very quietly, a number appears on the next line. That is the number of files plus folders on the F: drive. You don't have to wait for it and can continue doing other things on the computer. If you want just the files, but not the folders, type the same thing but use a period between the quotes. To get the number of folders, subtract the second number from the first. For a different drive, just use that drive's letter instead of the F By the way, DOS commands are not case sensitive, but spacing is critical. If you forget an empty space, where one is upposed to be, you will get totally different results, or none at all. You can copy from here, then jump into the DOS window, Right-click, and select PASTE. DOS is not really that scary, but very handy at times, when you want to go a bit further than what Windows allows. If you need that command often, put it into a bat and make a desktop shortcut to it.

Groan Alert: >From Mary This may come as a surprise to those of you not living in Las Vegas but there are more Catholic churches there than casinos. Not surprisingly, some worshippers at Sunday services will give casino chips rather than cash when the basket is passed. Since they get chips from so many different casinos, the churches have devised a method to collect the offerings. The churches send all their collected chips to a nearby Franciscan Monastery for sorting and then the chips are taken to the casinos of origin and cashed in. This is done by the chip monk! ------------------ Las Vegas still has all the pretty lights, but has been re-focused as a "Family Town", trying to compete with Disneyland and Disneyworld. City Hall is now controlled by the unions and the casino owners are simply outvoted. Forget all the jokes about hookers and brothels in Las Vegas. Those are "Once upon a time, long, lng ago..." Las Vegas got cleaned up and is safe to use for church conventions or to take grandparents and grandkids to, without having to worry about embarrassing questions.
Daily tip from Funnel as a String Dispenser For a handy way to have string at your fingertips, try this. Hang a cheap funnel as a dispenser, with the roll of twine or string in the top and the end running down through the spout. This is nice for a kitchen, basement, garage shop, or garden. Just keep a small knife handy to cut the twine or string. This will also keep you from having tangles and knots in the string or twine. It might even work for yarn for knitting or crocheting. By fossil1955 from Cortez, CO A plastic screw top coffee can works even better. Pull the string from the center of a spool through a hole in the bottom of the can. The lid keeps string or wool clean. You can epoxy two replacement blades for those key-fob box cutters onto the side of the can, projecting downward below the bottom rim in an upside down "V" fashion. The "V" has to close a bit below the rim of the can. That way you can cut the string or wool one-handed. It gets trapped in the upside down "V" as you snap it up into the upside down "V", and does not slide. In addition to the ease of one-handed cutting, with your cutter being 3-4 inches away from the hole, the cut end does not snake back into the hole. You will be amazed how well this trick works!

>From Minnie When I returned home from college for summer, I noticed a paper posted on the refrigerator. It listed some goals my dad had set for himself: Help wife more; lose weight; be more productive at work. I promptly added: "Send Minnie money every month." A few days later my brother wrote: "Make payments on car for Jason." Then my boyfriend joined in with: "Buy Tom a Jeep." Finally my father added a new goal to his amended list: "Wean kids."

Tired of the inconvenience of driving from the airport to his country cottage, a man equipped his small plane with pontoons so he could land on the lake directly in front of his cottage. On his next trip however, he made his approach down the airport runway as usual. Alarmed, his wife cried out, "Are you crazy? You can't land this plane here without wheels!" The startled husband yanked the nose up, narrowly averting certain disaster. Continuing home, he landed the plane on the lake without mishap. As he sat there, visibly shaken, he said to his wife, "I don't know what on earth got into me. That's the stupidest thing I've ever done in my life!" And with that, he opened the door and vaulted out... right into the water. ---------------- How do you take off from a paved airport with pontoons? When the pontoons are mounted for the summer, the plane is lifted onto a special trailer, that is hooked to a fast pick-up. Then pilot starts the plane and the truck takes off down the runway. With the plane more than taking care of the trailer, they soon reach enough speed for the plane to lift off the trailer. After trying to land on that trailer at the start of winter, and re-trying a dozen times, most plane owners opt for amphibious floats, that have small wheels built in.
