Is the IE browser alarm a hoax? 



Good Morning,  !

Today is Sunday, May 12
Happy Mothers Day!

Will Microsoft have a "New Coke" moment and back-pedal with
the universally hated W8 ?
No. 
Microsoft does not have a Pepsi to worry about.
The obedient sheeple, who accepted the sawed off monitors, 
and W7, will pay for W8.

Microsoft doesn't see any reason to backtrack. They may
chuckle about us howling and bitching, but they don't really
care. W8 is on the machines, that are being shipped from 
their plants in China and Singapore. 

If you have an XP, treat it well!
Vacuum it out regularly, defrag the hard drive, and make sure
you protect it from viruses and hackers.

The same goes with W7. You are going to have to make it last
until at least W9. Most of us skipped DOS4 and VISTA, 
and W8 will go onto the same shelf. 

Microsoft does not seem to care one way or the other,
and the sales people, who told you that W7 was good for you
and suitable punishment for the sins of your youth, are
now preparing to tell you that W8 is good for you..
 
You will have to look after yourself for a while.

Have FUN!

>From Amy While riding the bus, my mother noticed a young man, who was holding onto the same pole, staring at her. Eventually, he said, "Excuse me. This is my stop." Since she wasn't blocking his way, she was confused. "Well," she said, "go ahead." "And this is my pole," he said. My mother was completely perplexed until the young man added, "I just bought it at the hardware store to hold up my shower curtain." And with that, he picked up his pole and carried it off the bus.

>From Ellen We had just finished eating a beautiful dinner that my mother had prepared for our 28-member family. As I glanced up at the chandelier over the table, I was mesmerized by the creative handiwork a spider had woven around the prisms and lightbulbs. "Don't look up there!" my mother screamed. "It's the one thing I was too tired to clean!" "Don't look where?" my brother asked. "There!" my mother pointed. "It's my own personal web sight!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Bryan Zuniga, 20, Only In Florida: Suspect, 20, Fleeing From Police Is Attacked By Alligator Reported by The Smoking Gun A Florida man fleeing from cops following a traffic stop early today was attacked by an alligator during his escape attempt, investigators report. According to the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office, Bryan Zuniga was driving around 2:45 AM when deputies sought to pull over the 20-year-old’s car for “failing to maintain a single lane.” After bringing the vehicle to a stop, Zuniga--who was driving with a suspended license--allegedly bolted out the passenger door and escaped by kicking a hole through a nearby vinyl fence. Zuniga’s escape, however, was marred when he tripped over an alligator near a water treatment plant about a mile from the traffic stop. The ensuing attack left Zuniga with “multiple puncture wounds to his face, arm and armpit.” Deputies located Zuniga, seen in the above mug shot, at a local hospital where he sought treatment for the alligator bites. Upon release from the hospital, Zuniga was arrested and booked into the county jail on several counts, including a felony charge of fleeing a law enforcement officer. Zuniga is being held in lieu of $6300 bond. The alligator is back on the job guarding the sewage treatment facility. Tech Support Pits From: Ellen Re: is the browser Alarm a hoax or real? Dear Webby I read all over that the browser has a big security hole, that hackers are using to gain control of computers. Is that just FUD mongering or is there really any danger? Thanks Ellen Dear Ellen If you are using Internet Explorer 8, and don't have McAfee or Kasperki protecting your computer, then it may be too late. If you don't now what kind of browser you are using, go to http://whatbrowser.org/ It it shows you are using Internet Exploder 8, download Firefox or Chrome as fast as you can, and then retire Internet Exploder until they come up with a fix to close that big, gaping security hole. None of the other browsers have that problem. Naturally, you can also use Chrome or Opera or Safari. I recommend FireFox, because it is close enough to Internet Explorer, so that you can switch to it with a minimum of learning. No matter which browser you choose, for a while you need something better than Internet Explorer 8 You can download FireFox from http://snipurl.com/dl-ff Or Chrome from http://snipurl.com/dlchrome Have FUN!

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Use Pledge to Deter Ants Follow the ants' trail and try to find where they are entering from. Spray the area with lemon scented furniture polish (Pledge) and they will stop entering the house, kitchen, or wherever you see them. You may have multiple areas where they are coming in, so you would have to spray all of them. In my experience, I only had ants in an isolated area so it was pretty easy to find the source, on the floor baseboard from a crack in the the front of the house. I simply sprayed the furniture polish in that spot inside and left it. I didn't wipe it up or clean it off. I never saw ants again in the five years I lived there! Ants will come in from somewhere and go towards food sources so you might not necessarily have them coming in where you store the food. Hopefully this helps!

>From Fran It was our second anniversary, and my husband sent me flowers at the office. He told the florist to write "Happy Anniversary, Year Number 2" on the card. I was thrilled with the flowers, but not so pleased with the card. It read "Happy Anniversary. You're Number 2."
An old nun who was living in a convent next to a construction site noticed the coarse language of the workers and decided to spend some time with them to correct their ways. She decided she would take her lunch; sit with the workers, she put her sandwich in a brown bag and walked over to the spot where the men were eating. Sporting a big smile, she walked up to the group and asked: "And do you men know Jesus Christ?" They shook their heads and looked at each other. very confused. One of the workers looked up into the steelworks and yelled out, "Anybody up there know Jesus Christ?" One of the steelworkers yelled down , "Why?" The worker yelled back, "Cause his mom's here with his lunch."

A man learned shortly before quitting time that he had to attend a meeting. He tried unsuccessfully to locate his car-pool members to let them know that he would not be leaving with them. Hastily he scribbled a message to one fellow and left it on his desk: "I have a last-minute meeting. Leave without me. Dave." At 7:00 p.m., the man stopped at his desk and found this note: "Meet us at the bar and grill across the street. You drove today, you idiot."
