How to get rid of Incredimail? 



Good Morning,  !
Today is Sunday, November 25

RFID (Radio Frequency ID) tags are in the news again.
They are used to track school attendance and for locating
students. 
Andrea Hernandez, a student at John Jay High School in 
San Antonio, TX, refuses to wear hers. She claims it is 
against her religion to record, whether she sleeps in classes 
or sleeps at home, or whether she is in a classroom or in 
the cafeteria. 

Hiring people to manually track attendance at each checkpoint 
would be prohibitively expensive, so RFID tracking is the only
reasonable solution for large schools, that are required to
track attendance. 

RFID tags are identical to touchless entry cards available with
many security systems for over twenty years. A frame, similar 
to shoplifter alarm arches projects a magetic field that induces
a tiny bit of electricity in the card, which then blurts it's number
via a brief radio signal. That radio signal only goes a foot or two,
and is read by the frame, decyphered, and sent on to the 
central computer. 

With security systems, the computer then opens the door and 
records exactly when Little Johnny came through the door.

There is no private information involved, just WHO, WHEN.

When Hernandez refused to wear the RFID card, the school
told her that they can not afford manual checkpoints and they 
would have to exclude her, if she refuses to cooperate.
Which makes sense to me.

However, now a judge sided with her and ordered a stay of her
expulsion, while her lawyers are trying to run up the expenses 
of the school.

The funny thing is, they are not really tracking the "religious"
bimbo, but whether the school district can improve the 
attendance figures and merit a bit more money from the state.

There is also a safety aspect. In an emergency, the computer 
can tell how many students are still left in an endangered 
wing, or whether it has been successfully evacuated.

RFID are basically touch-less time cards and have been used 
in industry and commerce for 25 years. They are no invasion
of privacy.

Have FUN!

Fred's wife asked him to buy ORGANIC vegetables from the market. He went and looked around and couldn't find any. So he grabbed an old, tired looking employee and said, "These vegetables are for my wife. Have they been sprayed with any poisonous chemicals?" "The produce guy looked at him and said, "No. You'll have to do that yourself."
A Pigeon Rights fanatics drone was shot down, again, on Nov 18, when it invaded the privacy of the private Wing Pointe Shooting Club in Berks County, Pennsylvania. This is the fourth drone, that the fanatics lost lately. It seems, the drones are just as easy to shoot down a s clay or real pigeons, when they fly illegally below 150 feet altitude. Shooting pigeons, -or drones flying below 150 feet-. is not against the law, and seems to be great fun. Since they have bagged every drone, that invaded their privacy, the cops are just laughing and don't plan to do anything about it.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Katie Miller, 22, Fort Wayne, IN Jailed After Repeatedly Striking Ex-Boyfriend With Car, Running Him Over After She Noticed Her Car Was Damaged From Her Assault Reported by The Weekly Vice Katie Miller, a 22-year-old Indiana woman, has been jailed after she allegedly ran into her boyfriend repeatedly with her car, then ran over his leg as she fled the parking lot. According to police, officers were called to an apartment complex parking lot after receiving a report of a 'hit and run' accident. When officers arrived at the scene, they found a man laying in the parking lot who was later diagnosed with a fractured leg. The man told officers that his ex-girlfriend, Katie Miller, ran him over with her vehicle after the pair had an argument about their recent relationship. Investigators say the incident began when Miller picked the victim up from a party and drove him back to the apartment, so he could pick up his dog. During the drive, Miller and the victim reportedly argued about his attendance at the party. When the pair arrived at the apartment complex, they began arguing about their relationship and the reasons behind their recent break-up. At some point in the dispute, Miller ordered her ex-boyfriend out of the car, and he complied with her demand not realizing that he left his cell phone inside her car. As Miller started to pull out of the parking lot, the victim stepped in front of her vehicle and motioned towards the cell phone laying in the passenger's seat. Miller wanted to keep his phone and ignored his gestures and repeatedly bumped him with her vehicle so he would move out of the way. When the ex-boyfriend backed away from the car, Miller punched the gas and struck the victim, throwing him onto the hood of her car. The victim grabbed a windshield wiper on the car to brace himself, however, he was thrown from the car. The windshield wiper was bent as a result. When Miller noticed the damage to her car, she reportedly yelled "look what you did to my car" before fleeing the scene. "I begged her to take me to the hospital, but she just looked at me and left," the ex-boyfriend told police. Miller was booked into the Allen County Jail and charged with felony battery and criminal recklessness. Her bond has been set at $10,750. It is not clear whether the victim got his phone back.
Tech Support Pits From: Sig Re: How do I get rid of Incredimail? Dear Webby, Your newsletter is fantastic. I like your jokes and admire the pictures. I follow your health problems, shutter about injections in the eyes. My hard drive decided after a few month to quit. Good to have a backup drive with the data. Please remind your readers to buy the software disks. I tried to save the few dollars. Now I regret this decision as I have to re-purchase some of the software. The repair shop made IncediMail my email client. Now I have the annoyance with the "Mystart" toolbar. Event though I uninstalled IncrediMail this toolbar persists in my browser. The blinking lights, telling me my computer is slow, the other advertising is hard on my eyes (80+ years). Can you help? The internet advice so far has been useless. Sig Dear Sig When you buy software, print out the confirmation email with the serial number, or at least the purchase date and info. And put that into the ziplock bag with the machine info. Or file that paper, if you are the organized type. I imagine you told that repair shop what you think about them handicapping you with Incredimail. Most likely your computer is totally infected with that crap. 800+ files and 1200 registry keys. Incredimail claims that a normal uninstall should work, but a lot of people have found it doesn't completely get rid of it. Telling that repair shop that, if they don't totally remove that crap RFN, you will contact the local media and warn the general population about that shop, is one option. Another option is to purchase a $5 program from PC-Hell. It promises to completely get rid of that crap. Their site is at http://www.pchell.com/support/incredimail.shtml If I had to get rid of Incredimail from somebody's machine, I would buy that little program. You can purchase that uninstaller with PayPal. That gives you a 60 day warranty. Have FUN! DearWebby

On the border of Kentucky and Tennessee there's a small forest. Half of the forest belongs to a Kentucky farmer, while the other half belongs to a Tennessee man. One day, while out for a walk in the woods, the Tennessee man comes across a wolf caught in a trap. He rushes back to his house and calls his Kentucky neighbor. "There's one of your wolves caught in a trap on my side of the forest." "How do you know it's one of *our* wolves?" the Kentucky farmer asked. "Well," the Tennessee man replied, "he's already chewed off three of his legs and he's still trapped."
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Use Binder Clips in the Kitchen I use binder clips in my kitchen. They keep chip bags closed tightly. Along with using on cold cereal bags or any bag that needs to stay closed inside of a box or on it's own. I also use them to keep frozen vegetable bags tightly closed. The freezer does not hurt them and they are still easy to use. They are easier to use and handle than twisting wire.

Anyone who's ever ridden in a cab in Washington DC knows they're some of the world's most brazen drivers. Oddly enough though, their current accident rate isn't all that bad. I asked one of the drivers one day the reason for that. "Easy," he said. "all the really bad cab drivers are dead now."
