An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Jerry Active, 27, Togiak, Alaska
Alaskan man who raped 2-year-old, killed elderly couple gets 359 years in prison An Alaska man convicted of raping a 2-year-old girl and killing her great-grandparents was sentenced Friday to 359 years in prison for the repulsive crimes. Jerry Active was unremorseful as a judge handed down the punishment for the horrific 2013 attack on the Mountain View family, the Alaska Dispatch News reported. "I'll stand by my innocence until the end," Active said in the Anchorage courtroom, blaming his guilty verdict on a white jury, according to KTUU 2. The monster was found guilty in April of beating to death 71-year-old Touch Chea and his 73-year-old wife Sorn Sreap after raping Sreap and her 2-year-old great-granddaughter, police said. He also sexually assaulted a 90-year-old woman, who died in June. The sickening attack had shaken investigators for its brutality. Seasoned detectives had called the crimes the "worst thing they had ever seen in their lives," police department spokeswoman Anita Shell said at the time. The Togiak, Alaska, man entered the doomed family's home at random in May 2013. He was found guilty on 10 felony counts, including first-degree murder, multiple counts of sexual assault, sexually abusing a minor and robbery. Active, who was 24 at the time of the killing, had been released early from prison just hours before the attacks, according to state officials. He was set free on probation after serving part of a seven-year sentence for pleading guilty to breaking into an Alaska home in 2009 and sexually assaulting a child and other residents. "Mr. Active's actions will remain a scar on the community," Anchorage Superior Court Judge Philip Volland said, according to the Alaska Dispatch News. "These murders were senseless, brutal, bloody and bloodthirsty."
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Elise Re: How many Fonts are too many for Windows 7? Dear Webby, My Windows is gertting really slow whenever I do any word processing. Is it a case of too many fonts? Elise Dear too many fonts can slow down your computer when you use applications such as word processors and spreadsheets that use the fonts managed by Windows 7. These performance slowdowns can take the form of applications taking a long time to load, making the font drop down menu of an application almost impossible to use, and too much memory being used up by your computer to manage all of those fonts. There are no hard and fast rules that determine how many fonts is too many; it depends on how many fonts you have installed in Windows 7, how much memory you have in your PC, and the type of processor you have. Dealing with too many fonts means deleting those that you donít need. When you do, you will also notice that it is easier to find the font you want because you wonít have to wade through hundreds of fonts. One of the problems is that many programs install a bunch of their own favorite fonts. That would not be a problem, if you didn't already have a hundred, or a few hundred fonts, that you have collected over the years. Unless you have 64 GB of RAM, dump all the ones, that you are not really using. It's not a kids bragging world about who has more fonts, but who has a more responsive machine. Have FUN!

I was surprised to see how much lint it caught. All that lint would eventually clog our drain, and plumbers are expensive! I also have a mesh filter in the drain itself. I use the good leg from a ripped pair of pantyhose. I also go to garage sales and buy pantyhose for a good price, so I always have some on hand. Source: Washing machine repairman By Judy Pariser S.
