W9 is free
In Indonesia, where they are ahead of us in time and date,
Microsoft announced that W9 will be free to anybody, who
has W8 and is willing to over-write it with W9.
Sounds like they are embarrassed about W8.

The User Interface of W9 is apparently closer to W7, and
they copied a bunch of Linux features, but it is mostly
the current W7, which has been fixed with countless updates
and has become quite usable.

With XP-SP4 and a way to get updates until 2019 leaked out,
they really rushed W9 to just overwrite W8 fast.
They COULD have re-released W7, maybe called it W7-Octoberfest,
and slowed the migration from W8 to Linux and XP a lot
more efficiently than with a free, but unknown W9.

Somebody should tell them that there are real users out 
here, who try to get some work done, not just paid shills
at the computer magazines, who only play a bit on computers,
that they did not pay for.

Have FUN!

'Wave' hoax: Don't microwave your iPhone 6 Sep 25, 2014 LOS ANGELES (UPI) -- The iPhone 6 is so hot right now. The Los Angeles Police Department is warning smartphone users who may not be so smart to avoid trying to charge their iPhone 6 by putting it in the microwave. The LAPD said on its Twitter account iPhone 6 users should be wary of fake online ads claiming the latest Apple software update includes a function called "Wave" that allows the smartphones to be charged by cooking them in a microwave. "This #Wave capability is a #hoax. Don't be fooled into microwaving your #iPhone6. #Apple #Smartphone," the department's tweet read. Brian Humphrey, spokesman for the Los Angeles Fire Department, said putting a phone in the microwave could lead to property damage and injury.
Dave took Mary out for a romantic dinner where conversation turned to the subject of marriage. Dave had been saving for an engagement ring, but he was in graduate school and in dire need of a new computer. Mary was understanding, telling Dave they had the rest of their lives to get engaged, so he should use his savings to buy a computer instead. During dessert, Dave suddenly reached into his pocket and pulled out an engagement ring. Mary was stunned, but after she collected herself, she looked up and prompted, "Well, don't you have something to ask me?" Dave then got down on bended knee. "Honey," he said, "will you buy me a new computer?"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Andrew Frey, 37, Beaverton, OR. Oregon Man High on Meth Beats Off 12 Cops, Self Andrew Frey claims he has no recollection of the string of bizarre events that involved methamphetamine, tasers, and public masturbation. Andrew Frey from Beaverton, OR, claims his consumption of meth caused him to have no recollection of a string of events last week that culminated in a confrontation with more than 12 police officers as he put on a public display of what most people do in private. Apparently Frey, 37, began his afternoon by refusing to pay a locksmith that he had hired. Then he walked over to a local market and refused to leave. After being escorted from the market by an employee, Frey walked to Iggyĺs Bar & Grill where, according to a bartender, he exposed himself and started masturbating and police were called. When the Marion County deputy arrived, Frey had already moved on to the restroom, where he was still apparently enjoying his own company. Frey resisted arrest, fought with the deputy, and was zapped by a taser several times. According to officials, the stun gun had no effect and more than a dozen officers were called to the bar inside to subdue him. Later, Frey told officials that he had used methamphetamine the previous day and had no memory of his bizarre behavior. He was charged with theft, resisting arrest, and public indecency. Tech Support Pits From: Randall Re: Phishing scam mail Webby, ┬ Hope all is well with your eyes, love the Letter first thing i check on each and every day. My question is about IP Address'es. My computer at home has one IP Address, does my Android┬ device have a┬ IP Address of its own? Got a email from someone who says i tried to change my password and my ip address was this, but it was the wrong i am waiting to hear from you before i proceed with that email...If my device has its own IP Address where can i find this animal so i can put it my records...any assistance would be greatly appreciated...have a great week ahead... Cajunbuckeye59 Hi Randall Whenever anybody tells you BS like that, just dump that mail. It is a scammer trying to phish your user name and password. Don't even tell them to go ..., just dump their mail and forget them. Yes, your Android most likely has a totally different IP address, that is dynamically assigned whenever and wherever you happen to turn it on. You can always check your IP address by going to However, don't be impressed if some scammer reads your IP address and then tries to pretend to be official. Don't even bother recording the scammer's IP address. If he emailed from a mobile device, that too will change. Just dump the crap and flush. NEVER ever click on a link in such an email! If the scammer implies you changed the password for your bank account, open a fresh browser window, go to the bank, and log in. You will see that your password is unchanged. The same with PayPal and any other online deal, that you got. Always go there from a fresh browser window, NEVER from a handy link in an email. If PayPal sends you anything with a link in it, it is not to your account, but just to some general information read-me pages. When you get MailWasher, it will probably flag that mail for deleting. It recognizes crap like that. And in the header that it shows you, it shows what the real link underlying a phony link is. If a link pretending to be a link to PayPal shows an underlying foot long link to a Russian or Chinese domain, then you KNOW for sure that the mail is just a trap. DUMP IT. Have FUN! DearWebby

From Rosa Waiting for our aerobics class to begin, several of us were standing around in our leotards chatting about fitness and diets. One woman said that her brother-in-law had quit smoking, gone on a diet and lost weight all at the same time. Thinking to myself that no human being could possibly do this without acquiring at least one other undesirable habit for compensation, I jokingly asked her, "What did he start doing instead of these things?" After a slight pause, she smiled and said, "Well, my sister is pregnant now."
An American attorney had just finished a guest lecture at a law school in Italy when an Italian lawyer approached him and asked, "Is it true that a person can fall down on a sidewalk in your country and then sue the landowners for lots of money?" Told that it was true, the lawyer turned to his partner and started speaking rapidly in Italian. When they stopped, the American attorney asked if they wanted to go to America to practice law. "No, no," one replied. "We want to go to America and fall down on sidewalks."
