Resizing picture on a web page 

Good Morning,  !
Today is Wednesday, November 14

This seems to be the year of the fall of tyrants and bigshots.
First NATO ganged up on Gadafi, then Scott Forstall got 
booted out of Apple, then Petraeus got backstabbed and eased
out, now Sinofsky got kicked out of Microsoft. 

Sinofsky had been driving development of Windows 7, which 
rescued Microsoft from the embarrassing mess that was 
Windows Vista. While Windows 7 is too buggy to be worth
fixing, it is not as bad as Vista, and he should have retired 
when Windows 7 was released. 

However, just like Gadafi, he overstayed his welcome and
will get blamed for Windows 8.

Two weeks after the public release of Windows 8 we see the
exact repetition of the Vista release. People are digging in
their heels, and corporations are stocking up on old machines.
So Sinofsky got canned, belatedly.

He will be replaced by Julie Larson-Green, a carreer executive,
who most recently has been overseeing user interface design.
Considering the total lack of user appreciation of the Windows 8
user interface, maybe she should have been canned too.

Personally, I fail to see why we should have to put up with
different user interfaces every few years, just to be able
to get simple work done. 

Vista has been put onto the same shelf as DOS-4, and it looks
like Windows 8 is headed there too.
If they take the mobile device interfaces, but not the silly tiles 
of Windows 8, add that to XP and call it Windows 9, they would
have a winner, that would generate some loyalty. 

However, the victims, ahem users, don't count at Microsoft.

Unfortunately, that would not require new 16 GB machines and
all the computer manufacturing companies they own big shares 
in, would not generate the expected dividends. 
And China would go broke!

Have FUN!

"I'd like the number for Jennifer Smith in Richmond, Virginia," the young man said to the 411 operator. "There are multiple listings for Jennifer Smith in Richmond, Virginia," the operator said. "Do you have a street name?" The young man hesitated a moment, "Well, uh, most people call me Bubba."
On a recent flight I sat next to a lady who was on her way to meet a guy she had met over the net. She sat there during most of the flight messing with her make-up. She put on eyebrow pencil, eye shadow, eyeliner, eyelashes, foundation, mascara, toner, blush and stuff that I have no clue what it is called. Then she turned to me and said, "Does this look natural?" Well, the truth was that soap and water would have made her look a lot better than all that make-up. So I told her: "If your friend starts looking closely at your war paint, take that as a sign that you have your blouse buttoned up too high."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Holly Solomon, 28, in Gilbert, Arizona Jailed After Running Husband Down With SUV Because He Failed To Vote Reported by the Weekly Vice Holly Solomon, a 28-year-old Gilbert woman was jailed Saturday after she allegedly ran over her husband with an SUV because he didn't vote, and she was angry that Barack Obama got re-elected. According to Gilbert police, Holly Solomon was upset following the outcome of the presidential election. Anger turned into rage, however, when she discovered that her husband didn't even vote. Officers were dispatched to the suspect's home when a neighbor witnessed a domestic disturbance and called 911. Investigators say Solomon and her husband, 36-year-old Daniel Solomon, were arguing about the election inside her car when he decided that he'd had enough and stepped out of the vehicle. Undeterred, Solomon allegedly drove circles around her husband, in an apparent effort to keep him from leaving the scene of her harranging. When Mr. Solomon attempted to make a run for it, she sped after him in the Jeep and ran into him. After Mr. Solomon got to his feet, he took refuge behind a utility pole. Mrs. Solomon circled her husband again, while screaming obscenities at him. Again, Mr. Solomon attempted to make a run for it, prompting Mrs. Solomon to give chase in the Jeep. That's when she drove into him again, pinning him underneath the vehicle. The victim was taken to Scottsdale Healthcare Osborne Medical Center, where he remains in critical condition. During a police interview, Mr. Solomon stated that his wife was six month pregnant and blamed Obama for the hardship she and her family had been facing recently. Police do not believe she was impaired by drugs or alcohol during the incident. Holly Solomon was booked into jail and charged with domestic violence and aggravated assault.
Tech Support Pits From: Kitty Re: Resizing picture on a web page Dear Webby, i just wanted to say think you again for all your tips. and to say i went to the link that Dianne sent to you. that is an aussome site. is there a way to reset the size to the pictures like those? Kitty Dear Kitty You can get slightly bigger size by holding down the CTRL key and rolling the scroll wheel of the mouse. When you got the picture as big as it will go without getting coarse, hold down the ALT key and hit the PrintScreen key. I realize, on some poorly designed laptops, that is almost impossible. If necessary, hit whatever combination is required, to accomplish PrintScreen. That prints the picture into the clip board. Now open a graphics program, and hit CTRL V. That starts a new picture and puts the clip board content into it. Now you can resize the picture with less loss of clarity and sharpness, than just scrolling it larger with the browser. Have FUN!

A husband and wife attend a small service at the local church one Sunday morning. The man was very moved by the preacher's sermon, so he stopped to shake the preacher's hand. "Reverend, that was the best damn sermon I ever did hear!" The Reverend replied, "Oh! Why, thank you sir, but please, I'd appreciate it if you didn't use profanity in the Lord's house." "I'm sorry Reverend, but I can't help myself... it was such a damn good sermon!" The Reverend replied, "Sir, please, I cannot have you behaving this way in Church!" "Okay Reverend, but I just wanted you to know that I thought it was so damn good, that I put $5,000 in the collection plate." The Reverend's eyes opened wide as he remarked, "Holy Shit!!!! Five Thousand!!! Hot Digity Damn!
Daily tip from Keeping Side Mirrors Clear of Ice If you have those big rearview mirrors on your car or truck and you know an ice storm is coming, here's a cheap trick to keep them clean. Take two plastic grocery bags (one for each mirror) and two rubber bands and put the bags around the mirrors and secure them with the rubber band. It does not look great but it sure helps in the morning when it comes to cleaning the ice off the car or truck cause those mirrors are free and clear of ice! By Debradj from Illinois A piece of old tarp over the windows and mirrors and held down with a bungee cord on each side has worked well for me in the Yukon. It keeps the side windos clear of frost and snow too. Have FUN! DearWebby Check out ThriftyFun's Blog at

During a phone conversation, my niece mentioned that she was taking a psychology course at university. "Oh, great," I said, "Now you'll be analyzing everyone in the family." "No, no," she replied. "I don't take abnormal psychology until next semester."

My job as a land surveyor took me to a golf course that was expanding to 18 holes. Using a machete to clear thick brush in an area I was mapping, I came upon a golf club that an irate player must have tossed away. It was in good condition, so I picked it up and continued on. When I broke out of the brush onto a putting green, two golfers stared at me in awe. I had a machete in one hand, a golf club in the other, and behind me was a clear-cut swath over 100 yards long. "There," said one of the golfers, "is a guy who hates to lose his ball!"
