Dump FireFox 29, revert to FF28 




Good Morning,  !
Today is Tuesday, May 13.

Today, after about half a dozen years of steady work,
my good old mouse died. Luckily I still had an old mouse,
that still had basic functionality. It is amazing how one
gets used to the extra buttons, and how much slower work
progresses without them.

Have FUN!

After counting their money at the end of the day, they realize they'd ended up with no more money than they'd started with. "See!" said Ole. "I told you ve shoulda got a bigger truck."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Annie Schmutz Seifullah, 35, Long Island City School Principal Accused Of Sex With Employees, Parent On Campus A New York principal could face misconduct charges following allegations that she had sex with co-workers and a student's parent on campus while school was in session. Annie Schmutz Seifullah, 35, was removed from the Robert Wagner Secondary School of Arts and Technology in Long Island City on May 1 after her jilted ex-boyfriend, a single father, went to police with shocking allegations, and images to back them up, the New York Post reports. The man told cops that Seifullah had cheated on him with a NYPD security officer who worked at the school, and with a visiting assistant principal -- both times at the school. In audio and video recordings provided by her accuser, a woman identified as Seifullah admits to the acts. The New York Post reports: “I don’t know what I was thinking. I don’t know why I thought it was OK,” she tells the furious dad in the taped conversation, after he accuses her of cheating on him. “You gave him [expletive deleted] while my child was in the building,” he roars at one point. The man went to police after his relationship with Seifullah unravelled. According to the New York Post, he gave investigators three laptop computers owned by the Department of Education that contained photos and video of the woman in racy lingerie and in various sex acts, including a threesome. In one photo obtained by the Post, Seifullah appears posing in lingerie. Police said they removed computers and other electronics from the woman's office and home. NYC teachers and administrators aren't banned from dating each other, but favoritism or mistreatment could lead to a citation. Having sex in school or putting sexual images on school computers can lead to misconduct charges. WPIX reports than an investigation by the Department of Education is underway. "We are appalled by these disturbing allegations and acted swiftly to remove the principal while the matter is under investigation," a Department of Education spokesman said, according to Gothamist. "This type of alleged behavior is completely unacceptable for any DOE employee." Tech Support Pits From: Alda Re: The new version of Firefox stinks! Dear Webby The new version of Firefox stinks! How do I go back to #28 ? Alda Dear Alda Try FF 28.0b0 By the way, you are not the only one, who is not impressed with version 29. There is already an ADD-ON available to make the User Interface look like the one before version 29, but it is a struggle, and it does not speed up the browser. Hopefully with version 30 or 31 they listen to what the users want, instead of the thilly wienies, who just want changes for the sake of change. Don't be shy about telling them!

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Cleaning Melted Plastic from a Glass Cooktop When left with just the residue of plastic on the cooktop: turn burner to maximum for 10 minutes (exhaust on for fumes), until residue turns from black to charcoal grey. After cooktop cools, wipe with a dry cloth. The residue will be nothing, but ash. Source: Tried this after melting a plastic bag on the cooktop. Easiest cleaning ever. By Trish M.

At one time in my life, I thought I had a handle on the meaning of the word "service". "The act of doing things for other people." Then I heard the terms such as "Internal Revenue Service," "Postal Service," "Civil Service," "Service Stations." And I became confused about the word "service." This is not what I thought "service" meant. One day, I overheard two farmers talking and one of them mentioned that he was having a bull "service" a few of his cows. It all came into perspective.
An elderly woman from Brooklyn decided to prepare her will. She told her rabbi she had two final requests. First, she wanted to be cremated, and second, she wanted her ashes scattered over Walmart. "Walmart!" The rabbi exclaimed, "Why Walmart?" "Then I'll be sure my daughters visit me twice a week."
