FireFox 30 is OK, except for bleeding top bar 




Good Morning,  !
Today is Thursday, June 26.

Yes, I know that the Ezinefinder is still down.
Mañana. Maybe.
The good news is that it looks like they are finally 
moving up to a Linux server. Right now they are still
stumped and apparently don't realize how much simpler
it actually is. I am sure they will get the hng of it soon.

I got strep throat or something nasty like that. 
You would not believe how tempting it would be to crawl
into bed and skip a day or two!

Have FUN!

Three guys were standing around talking about dying when one asked, "What would you like people to say about you as they come to pay their last respects?" The second man said, "I hope they say I was a respected doctor in my field, a good family man, and had lots of friends." The third man said, "I hope they say I was a well spoken attorney, helped my fellow man, good citizen, and played a mean round of golf." The first man said, "That's probably what will be said of the two of you. My hope is that when they look down in my coffin, they say, "Look...he's moving"!

Reported by Walter, the StoneCarver An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Richard Coleman, City of Leawood, Kansas Kansas boy forced to remove little free library from his yard Spenser Collins, 9, loves to read. The idea of sharing his love of books with his neighbors thrills him. So with the help of his parents, he set up a Little Free Library in their yard in Leawood, Kansas. But the town of Leawood decided the birdhouse-sized library was an illegal structure and the family was ordered to remove it. The family moved the Little Free Library into their garage. But they are looking to take the issue with City Hall, reported ABC affiliate KMBC. The little library, which was made by the boy’s grandfather, was capable of holding a few books. Like the Little Free Libraries across the country, it had a “take a book, leave a book” note taped on its door. The bookshelf sat next to a bench on the family's front yard, which was intended to provide a spot for readers to enjoy their books. "When we got home from vacation, there was a letter from the city of Leawood saying that it was in code violation and it needed to be torn down by the 19th or we would receive a citation," Spencer's mother, Sarah Collins told KMBC. The City of Leawood bans buildings that aren't attached to homes. Since the library was a free standing structure in the family's front yard, it was considered illegal. The city claims that they have received two complaints regarding the library, according to Richard Coleman, Leawood's director of community development. "First, there was just a library. Then, a bench was place next to it. I think people were concerned there would be more and more stuff at their front yard," Coleman told ABC News. “I find it rather humorous that the city [of Leawood] thinks it is illegal," said Todd Bol, who helped create the Little Free Library movement in 2009. "It is a sweet thing that brings the community together." Bol said the Little Free Library has worked well in some of the toughest communities across the country. There are more than 16,000 Little Free Libraries in 72 countries, according to Bol. Collins family has set up a Facebook page to inform supporters of their progress. The page has received over 17,000 "likes." "Our city law has been around for over a decade. This is the first time that we have had a problem with this," Coleman said. "We think that it is a great program. It's just that the current ordinance doesn't allow it." Tech Support Pits From: Bree Re: FireFox 30 Bugs Dear Webby I notice you mention FireFox 30. Is it safe, and what kind of bugs do we have to expect? Bree Dear Bree Yes, FireFox 30 is safe and works well. The only bug I have an issue with is that the top Windows bar bleeds down into the tabs. I have used a light green fading to dark green top bar for active windows since Windows 3.1, and red fading to dark red for inactive windows. You were probably still jail-bait in those days, but that has become my standard set-up. There is no logical reason for the Windows top bar to bleed down onto the tab colors. Yes, I use Colorful Tabs 24.3. Highly recommended Add-on! I am sure somebody will craft a fix for that in the near future. In the meantime, that is the only FireFox 30 specific bug, that I have come across. Have FUN! DearWebby

While digging a shaft into the German homeland, German scientists discovered small pieces of copper at 50 meters. After studying these pieces for a long time, Germany announced that the ancient Germans 25,000 years ago had a nationwide telephone network. Naturally, the British government was not that easily impressed. The British ordered their own scientists to dig even deeper. At a depth of 100 meters, they discovered small pieces of glass. Soon the British announced that the ancient Brits 35,000 years ago already had a nationwide fiber net. Israeli scientists were outraged. They dug 50, 100, and 200 meters underground, but found absolutely nothing. The Israelis concluded that the ancient Hebrews 55,000 years ago had cellular telephones.
