Floppy Light 



Good Morning,  !
Today is Monday, March 17.

Saint Patrick was a Christian missionary, bishop and 
apostle to Ireland. He was born in the late 4th century.

Patrick began his first mission to Ireland in 432.

On March 17, 461 A.D., St. Patrick died at Saul, 
Downpatrick, Ireland.

On March 17, 1762, in New York City, the first 
St. Patrick's Day parade took place. The parade was 
held by Irish soldiers serving in the British army.

Today March 17 is a day of international celebration,
even in Ireland. 

Until 1970 drinking alcohol was prohibited in Ireland
in honor of St Patrick's death. Rumpr has it, the people
of Ireland has since then made upfor that.

An Irishman arrived at J.F.K. Airport and wandered around the terminal with tears streaming down his cheeks. An airline employee asked him if he was already homesick. "No," replied the Irishman. "I've lost all me luggage!" "How'd that happen?" "The cork fell out!" said the Irishman

>From Cookie In a bid to stem taxpayer losses for bad loans guaranteed by federal housing agencies Fanny Mae and Freddy Mac, Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) proposed that borrowers be required to make a 5% down payment in order to qualify for a loan. His proposal was rejected 57-42 on a straight party-line vote because, as Senator Chris Dodd (D-Conn) explained, "Passage of such a requirement would restrict home ownership to only those who can afford it." The result was history.

Tech Support Pits From: Wendy Re: Floppy Light Dear Webby, this may sound like a silly question but here goes: Walked into the computer room yesterday and the little green light on the floppy disk slot was on, while it was on there was this buzzing sound. Then, after a few seconds the light went out, and the buzzing stopped. A few more seconds after that the light came on, the buzzing started once again. All this only happens for a few seconds. So, I took a floppy disk (which I haven't used in years) put it into the drive and all is well, or seems to be. Question? Will it hurt to keep a disk in the drive? And do you have any idea what might be going on? You're always so knowledgeable that I thot you'd be the only one to know the answer. This is not affecting my computer in any other way, I'm just curious. Thanks for all your help, you are a Godsend Cheers, Wendy Dear Wendy I have not used floppy disks in probably more than 15 years. Still got some shoe boxes full of them, but no drive to read them. It sounds like you or a hacker accidentally tried to save something onto the A: drive. As long as it has finished doing that, there should be no more buzzing or light until you or somebody tries to save something onto the A: drive. Do a full scan and make sure there is no hacker accessing your machine, when you are not looking. Don't leave a floppy inthe A: drive. That is the default boot drive. A hostile program cold make a boot disk, and then next time you reboot, it could trash your C: drive. After letting it finish a save to the A: drive, I would check and probably format that floppy, to make 100% sure it does not hold anything hostile. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Protecting your Camera Protect your camera from the rain, sand, and elements (at the beach, etc.) by putting it in a plastic bag such as a Ziploc bag. You can also have fun and make special effects by putting stickers or sticking objects on the bag when you take your picture. By Carol from Eastern, NC You can get padded camera bags at the Dollar Store and at Garage Sales. With those from garage sales, you might have to fix or replace the zipper, but that is no big deal with SpeedSew or any glue. Have FUN! DearWebby Check out ThriftyFun's Blog

An Irishman had been drinking at a pub all night. The bartender finally said that the bar was closing. So, the Irishman stood up to leave fell flat on his face. He tried to stand one more time; same result. He figured he'll crawl outside and get some fresh air and maybe that will sober him up. Once outside, he stood up and fell on his face again. So he decided to crawl the four blocks home. Again, he fell flat on his face. He crawled through the door and into his bedroom. When he reached his bed he tried one more time to stand up. This time he managed to pull himself upright, but he quickly fell right into the bed and is sound asleep as soon as his head hits the pillow. He was awakened the next morning to his wife standing over him, shouting, "SO YOU'VE BEEN DRINKING AGAIN!" Putting on an innocent look, and intent on bluffing it out he said, "What makes you say that?" "The pub just called; you left your wheelchair there again."
Murphy came home and was greeted by his wife dressed in a very sexy nightie. "Tie me up," she purred, "and you can do anything you want." So Murphy tied her up and went to the pub.
