Norton 360 vs McAfee Total Protection 



Good Morning,  !
Today is Friday, October 11.
Time to wear a bit of red to show your support for the troops!



The picture today is from yesterday, when it was clear and
cold. I saw those colors during my walk from a bit more than
a quarter mile away, up on the high prairie. (Black Diamond
is in a sheltered valley.) 
I saw the sun setting, with the shadow of the mountains
creeping up to those colorful bushes.

So I hotfooted it up there, pant, pant, and so was Copper,
the dog. I beat the shadow, just barely. You see my feet
already in the shadow. It sure heated me up, but I think
it was worth it.

Tonight it was still cold and windy, but with horizontal
rain that soaked my pants. And right now it is snowing.

Have FUN!

>From Benster Life just gets better as you get older doesn't it. I was in a Starbucks Coffee recently when my stomach started rumbling and I realized that I desperately needed to f@rt. The place was packed but the music was really loud so to get relief and reduce embarrassment I timed my farts to the beat of the music. After a couple of songs I started to feel much better. I finished my coffee and noticed that everyone was staring at me. I suddenly remembered that I was listening to my Ipod. This is what happens when old people start using technology.

>From Roland General Baldwin had barely arrived in the forward area when a sniper's bullet removed a button from his shirt. He threw himself to the ground in terror. The men stood around with the greatest unconcern. The general yelled at a passing sergeant. "Hey, isn't somebody going to kill that darned sniper?" The sergeant looked down at the general and replied: "I guess not, general. We're scared that if we kill him, the enemy will replace him with somebody who knows how to shoot."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Kendrick Ruth, 35, Long beach, California Jailed After Punching Female Cashier In Face Because He Didn't Have Enough Money for $1.41 Cigar Reported by The Weekly Vice Kendrick Ruth, a 35-year-old California man, was jailed Wednesday after he allegedly punched a female gas station cashier in the face because he didn't have enough change for a cigar. According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office, a man hunt for Ruth was initiated last month after he punched a female cashier in the face after he tried to purchase a $1.41 Swisher Sweet cigar with a single dollar bill that he had in his pocket. Investigators say Ruth punched 23-year-old Yadira Lara directly between the eyes with a closed fist. Ruth then fled the scene with the cigar and remained on the loose until he was identified and tracked down by deputies last Wednesday. The victim reportedly sustained serious injury to her left eye and has been told that the damage is permanent and may lead to blindness in that eye. Ruth was booked into jail and charged with robbery and assault. His bail has been set at $100,000, well above the cost of a cigar. Tech Support Pits From: Jan Re: Norton vs McAfee Dear Webby Ok, Thank you for your reply..........now what is the difference between Norton 360 and McAfee since you favor McAfee????? Jan Dear Jan Norton used to be very good until the Norton Ads in 1998 and 1999 claimed that it took Norton to make Windows complete. That irked somebody at Microsoft, and with all versions since then, Norton just does not work very well. Also, Norton habitually marks a spot on the hard drive as bad, and hides expiry date and all kinds of stuff there. Marking a perfectly good prime spot on the hard drive as bad, THAT IRKS ME! In addition to that, Norton has a reputation for having a lot of hidden files and being very difficult to remove, all in addition to not catching really nasty malware. Norton is definitely not at the top any more, like it was until about 1999. The top nowadays is McAfee and Kasperski. They are about equal. I use McAfee, because I have used it since the mid 80's, and see no urgent reason to switch. Have FUN! DearWebby

The boss of a big company needed to call one of his employees about an urgent problem with one of the main computers. He dialed the employee's home phone number and was greeted with a child's whispered, "Hello?" Feeling put out at the inconvenience of having to talk to a youngster, the boss asked, "Is your daddy home?" "Yes," whispered the small voice. "May I talk with him?" the man asked. To the surprise of the boss, the small voice whispered, "No." Wanting to talk with an adult, the boss asked, "Is your Mommy there?" "Yes," came the answer. "May I talk with her?" Again the small voice whispered, "No." Knowing that it was not likely that a young child would be left home alone, the boss decided he would just leave a message with the person who should be there watching over the child. "Is there any one there besides you?" the boss asked the child. "Yes," whispered the child, "A policeman." Wondering what a cop would be doing at his employee's home, the boss asked, "May I speak with the policeman?" "No, he's busy," whispered the child. "Busy doing what?" asked the boss. "Talking to Daddy and Mommy and the fireman," came the whispered answer. Growing concerned and even worried as he heard what sounded like a helicopter through the earpiece on the phone, the boss asked, "What is that noise?" "A hello-copper," answered the whispering voice. "What is going on there?" asked the boss, now alarmed. In an awed, whispering voice, the child answered, "The search team just landed the hello-copper." Alarmed, concerned and more than just a little frustrated, the boss asked, "Why are they there?" Still whispering, the young voice replied with a muffled giggle, "They're looking for me."

Moments later, his attention is grabbed by a great commotion at the roulette table. Thinking Maybe she'd won, he rushes back to the table and pushes his way through the crowd. Tammy is lying limp on the floor, with the table operator kneeling over her. The man is stunned. He asks, "What happened? Is she all right?" The operator replies, "I don't know.
