Slave Drives 

Good Morning,  !
Today is Friday, January 31.
Time to wear a bit of red to show your support for the troops!

It cooled off enough so that the snow became noisy when
walked on. In case you are a Southerner, and have never
heard that, it is a sound half way between a creak and
a scream.

Traction is quite good on snow, when it is noisy. My left
elbow and both hips are still sore from bombing the 
sidewalks yesterday, so I was quite apopreciative of the 
noisy new snow.

Have FUN!

"The Constitution does not specify how long the State of the Union address must be. You know who gave the longest State of the Union address ever? Bill Clinton. You know who gave the shortest? George Washington. It was just a couple of minutes. Well sure, when a politician cannot tell a lie, it limits how much they can say." --- Jay Leno ------------ That may have to be updated. Not sure, though, since I don't have time to listen that long.

>From Roland Neighbors of ours had a terrible disagreement over a patio they wanted for their backyard. The wife had rather grand ideas, while the husband wanted costs kept to a minimum. The wife won out, and the construction bill climbed higher and higher. I dropped by one day, when the patio was near completion, and was surprised to find the husband smiling from ear to ear as the workmen smoothed over the surface. I remarked how nice it was to see a grin replace the frown he had been wearing lately. "You see where they're smoothing that cement?" he replied. "I just threw my wife's credit cards in there."
>From George Our teacher asked what my favorite animal was, and I said, "Fried chicken." She said I wasn't funny, but she couldn't have been right, because everyone else laughed. My parents told me to always tell the truth. I did. Fried chicken is my favorite animal. I told my dad what happened, and he said my teacher was probably a member of PETA. He said they love animals .......very much. I do, too. Especially chicken, pork and beef. Anyway, my teacher sent me to the principal's office. I told him what happened, and he laughed, too. Then he told me not to do it again. The next day in class my teacher asked me what my favorite live animal was. I told her it was chicken. She asked me why, so I told her it was because you could make them into fried chicken. She sent me back to the principal's office. He laughed, and told me not to do it again. I don't understand. My parents taught me to be honest, but my teacher doesn't like it when I am. Today, my teacher asked me to tell her what famous person I admired most. I told her, "Colonel Sanders." Guess where I am now.
A still evening a few days ago. You still see the almost smoothed over snow angel and drift I mentioned a couple of weeks ago. During a Chinook that chime in the foreground flies straight horizontally. Noisily too! Click on the picture for the large version

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Cody Marrone, 21, Spring Hill, Floriduh Deputy charged with scorching 3 year old child's genitals with blow dryer because child wouldn't let him sleep reported by the Weekly Vice Cody Marrone, a 21-year-old Florida man, was jailed Friday after he allegedly burned a 3-year-old boy's genitals because the child wouldn't let him sleep. According to the Hernando County Sheriff's Office, deputies were dispatched to Spring Hill Regional Hospital after a 3-year-old boy was admitted for burn marks that didn't appear accidental. The boy reportedly had burn marks to multiple parts of his body including his genital area, buttocks and chest. To make matters worse, the boy's genital area had become inflamed and severely swollen from the burns. The burn marks also took the shape of a grill, which the mother noted as being the same shape and pattern of her blow dryer. Investigators say the mother, Meghan Sherron, had been at work when the boy was injured and had placed the child in the care of her ex-boyfriend, Cody, as she had done many times in the past. When deputies questioned Marrone about the burns, Marrone told them that the boy injured himself while playing with the blow dryer. However, after he was read his Miranda Rights, Marrone admitted to causing the child's injuries. Marrone, who is a Hernando County Detention Deputy, went on to inform investigators that he burned the little boy with the blow dryer because the child would not "let him sleep," according to the arrest affidavit. Marrone was booked into jail and charged with aggravated child abuse and child neglect. His bond has been set at $20,000. Now the detention deputy is in detention. Tech Support Pits From: Ricky Re: Slave setting Dear Webby, How do I change a master hard drive to a slave? I have a couple older hard drives that I would like to be able to add to my com. There is one particular drive that I got out of a computer from, lets call that drive I, always starts when I turn on the computer. I end up running on "Windows 95" I dont' want that. I want to run my current drive, C, and be able to access I as a seperate drive. You see, drive I has a lot of music on it and I just want to be able to access it like I do any of my other spare drives.... Thanks Webby -Ricky On really old drives the jumpers for that are on the circuit board, on newer ones they are between the ribbon cable and the power plug-in. If you look close, you'll see one or two miniature Lego blocks. Those are the jumpers. Now, if you look at the label side of the drive, there is a small diagram showing you how to set the jumper to tell it to be a Master drive, Slave drive or RAID drive. Nowadays the simples way to run extra drives is in external drive enclosures and plugged into a USB port. Externally, with USB-2 drive enclosures you can run another two drives. USB drives have to be set as Slaves. Your C: drive is the Master, it determines which Operating system is used. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Ski Mask For Winter Cycling Cold weather cycling can be made much more comfortable by a trip to your local ski shop. Ski gear is designed for breaking the cold wind you're likely to face when winter cycling. A knit ski mask with a vapor-permeable membrane will protect your face from icy winds but won't get soggy as you breathe hard during exertion. It should fit closely enough to allow you to wear your normal helmet on top. By joesgirl Make sure you take it off before going into the bank or even stopping at a drive-through! Have FUN!

There was a king in Africa who had a close friend that he grew up with. The friend had a habit of looking at every situation that ever occurred in his life (positive or negative) and remarking, "This is good!" One day the king and his friend were out on a hunting expedition. The friend would load and prepare the guns for the king. The friend had apparently done something wrong in preparing one of the guns, for after taking the gun from his friend, the king fired it and his thumb was blown off. Examining the situation the friend remarked as usual, "This is good!" To which the king replied, "No this is NOT good!" and proceeded to send his friend to jail. About a year later, the king was hunting in an area that he should have known to stay clear of. Cannibals captured him and took him to their village. They tied him to a stake surrounded by wood. As they came near to set fire to the wood, they noticed that the king had but one thumb. Being superstitious, they never ate anyone that was less than whole. They untied the king and sent him away. As he returned home, he was reminded of the event that had taken his thumb and felt so very badly about his treatment of his friend. He went immediately to the jail to speak with his friend. "You were right" he said, "it was good that my thumb was blown off." And he proceeded to tell the friend all that had just happened. "And so I am very sorry for sending you to jail for so long. It was bad for me to do this." "No," his friend replied, "this is good!" "What do you mean, 'this is good'! How could it be good that I sent you, my good friend, to jail for all this time?" "If I had not been in jail, I would have been with you - and eaten!

I know my company has made a big effort to be family friendly, but I was baffled when I read this holiday an- nouncement posted on the bulletin board: "All employees are invited to the annual Valentines Day party. All children under the age of ten will receive a gift. Employees who have no children may bring grandchildren."
>From Myrna Using a new painting program on my computer, I managed to come up with a very credible still life of fruit. I made a color printout and sent it to my daughter, a graphic designer. She called when it arrived. "Isn't it good?" I asked. She chuckled, and in a tone that echoed mine from years ago, replied, "Mom, it's beautiful. We put it on the refrigerator."
