Way around W7's lack of backward compatibility 



Good Morning,  !
Today is Saturday, August 10.

National Security Agency director General Keith Alexander
says his agency is working to prevent future leaks by 
replacing the majority of its system administrators, 
—the position Edward Snowden held—, with machines. 

The system administrators are not impressed.
The hacker world, though, is rejoycing. They will get
updates a lot quicker.

By the way, on Tuesday I have to go to Calgary for the August
injections into my eyeballs. That means no newsletters will 
be sent out Wdnesday, Tursday and Friday. And no emails will
be answered on those days.

Have FUN!

Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored. --- Aldous Huxley
A man went to church one day and afterward he stopped to shake the preacher's hand. He said, "Preacher, I'll tell you, that was a damned fine sermon. Damned good!" The preacher said, "Thank you sir, but I'd rather you didn't use that kind of language in the Lord's House. The man said, "I was so damned impressed with that sermon I put five thousand dollars in the offering plate!" The preacher said, "No shit?!"

Judi was almost crazy with her three kids. She complained to her best friend, "They're driving me nuts. Such pests, they give me no rest and I'm half-way to the nut hatch." "What you need is a playpen to separate the kids from yourself," her friend said. So Judi bought a playpen. A few days later, her friend called to ask how things were going. "Superb! I can't believe it," Judi said. "I get in that pen with my laptop and the kids don't bother me one bit!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Ashton Powers, 24, Tempe, Arizona Jailed for Slashing Police Car Tire While Officer Was Sitting In Car Reported by The Weekly Vice Ashton Powers, a 24-year-old Arizona bonehead, was jailed last Tuesday after he slashed the tire of a police cruiser while an officer was still sitting inside the vehicle. According to Tempe Police, an officer was pulled over at the corner of 7th street and Mill Ave finishing up a police report when he suddenly felt a jolt to his patrol car. The jolt, followed by a strange sound, prompted the officer to step outside the vehicle to see what the problem was. The officer saw that his rear passenger tire had been slashed and noticed a man walking away from the scene with a knife in his hand. The officer caught up to the man, identified as Ashton Powers, and questioned him about his behavior. That's when Powers admitted to slashing the tire, explaining that he didn't see anyone inside the vehicle. Investigators aren't sure why Powers attacked the vehicle, since it was a fully marked police car with the engine running and an officer sitting inside it. Powers was booked into jail and charged with criminal damage to property. More charges may follow. Tech Support Pits From: Frank Re: PDF files attached won't open in W7 Dear Webby When somebody sends me an email with a PDF attachment, it won't open in Blonde Windoze. I even installed Nitro, like you once recommended. It can't find it. I use Eudora. What is going on? Frank Dear Frank Some moronic Asshole at Microsoft decided to put a hole into "ProgramFiles" and call it "Program Files", for the sole purpose of being a moronic Asshole, and to make Blonde Windows NOT backward compatible. Luckily the geniuses, who created Euroda 25 years ago, foresaw that and provided a safe detour. Create a new attachment directory, for example C:\!att (The exclamation mark will ensure, that it shows at the top in an alphabetical search.) Then in Eudora, click on Tools, Options, and scoot down to Attachments. Click on the button for Attachment Directory. Change that from the sick Shit-fer-brains location with a space in the directory name to C:\!att. You could actually let Eudora make you a directory, but in case some other programs won't help you there, I'll show you the safe route. After that, Eudora will put all newly arriving attachments into C:\!att, and Nitro or whatever you use to open attachments, will be able to find and open them. Now go to the moronic location, and drag all the old attachments over to the new location. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Cleaning the Oven To clean your oven, spray with oven cleaner at night (I use Easy Off lemon scent). The next day, use a wet sponge to wipe off the oven. Use gloves and a bucket of water, as you'll have to keep washing the sponge. It makes oven cleaning much easier.

A young woman wasn't feeling well, and asked one her co-workers to recommend a physician. "I know a great one in the city, but he is very expensive. Five hundred dollars for the first visit, and one hundred dollars for each one after that." The woman went to the doctor's office and, trying to save a little money, cheerily announced. "I'm back!" Not fooled for a second, the doctor quickly examined her and said, "Very good, just continue the treatment I prescribed on your last visit." -------------- She sure would not even try that in Wyoming, with the mandatory RFID dog-chip implanted in her butt! As soon as she steps up to the receptionist's counter, her ID and entire medical history will show on the receptionist's computer. Payment history and criminal record too. And of course her driving record and credit rating! Actually, the chip does not have all that info. It just carries the ACCESS KEY to all that. The data can be updated even while the chip carrier is hiding in Africa. Naturally airport security and police use the same dog-chip scanners. That was actually Obama's main argument in favor of chipping all the sheeple. I have a hunch Montana will threaten to secede and join Canada, rather than have all Montanans wear dog chips.

I don't think I'll ever have a mother's intuition. My sister left me alone in a restaurant with my 10-month old nephew. I said, "What do I do if he cries?" She said "Give him some vegetables." It turns out that jalapeno is not his favorite.
