>From Efa re thumb drives for Linux
If your going to suggest USB thumb drives. I would have them 
make it with persistence that way they can save wifi or 
other settings.

I would also make a caveat about sound cards and other 
auxiliary that can sometimes be a little more challenging. 
It's a lot better than I remember from before.

Fedora 22 is a 1.3 gb image using there windows tool you 
can make up to 4gb persistent part.
Mint I think the last I checked was 1.3 to 1.6 gb for 17.

If someone needs a penguin type in the Boston area I might 
be able to assist.

It was a welcome surprise to find 8.1 had a image burner 
baked in.

Hi Efa
All the flavors of Linux I tried coped with standard sound 
cards quite well. Only with home-made high performance
game machines would one have to expect a bit of a hassle
finding drivers for new, not yet popular sound cards.
Personally I have not seen any problem with sound cards.

Connecting to the Internet seems to have been practically 
built in as the basic foundation, but setting up local 
networks often requires a bit of help from a friendly 
penguin the first time around.

Have FUN!

ABBOTT : Good Subject. Terrible Times. It's 5.6%. COSTELLO : That many people are out of work? ABBOTT : No, that's 23%. COSTELLO : You just said 5.6%. ABBOTT : 5.6% Unemployed. COSTELLO : Right 5.6% out of work. ABBOTT : No, that's 23%. COSTELLO : Okay, so it's 23% unemployed. ABBOTT : No, that's 5.6%. COSTELLO : WAIT A MINUTE. Is it 5.6% or 23%? ABBOTT : 5.6% are unemployed. 23% are out of work. COSTELLO : If you are out of work you are unemployed. ABBOTT : No, Congress said you can't count the "Out of Work" as the unemployed. You have to look for work to be unemployed. COSTELLO : BUT THEY ARE OUT OF WORK!!! ABBOTT : No, you miss his point. COSTELLO : What point? ABBOTT : Someone who doesn't look for work can't be counted with those who look for work. It wouldn't be fair. COSTELLO : To whom? ABBOTT : The unemployed. COSTELLO : But ALL of them are out of work. ABBOTT : No, the unemployed are actively looking for work. Those who are out of work gave up looking and if you give up, you are no longer in the ranks of the unemployed. COSTELLO : So if you're off the unemployment roles that would count as less unemployment? ABBOTT : Unemployment would go down. Absolutely! COSTELLO : The unemployment just goes down because you don't look for work? ABBOTT : Absolutely it goes down. That's how it gets to 5.6%. Otherwise it would be 23%. COSTELLO : Wait, I got a question for you. That means there are two ways to bring down the unemployment number? ABBOTT : Two ways is correct. COSTELLO : Unemployment can go down if someone gets a job? ABBOTT : Correct. COSTELLO : And unemployment can also go down if you stop looking for a job? ABBOTT : Bingo. COSTELLO: So there are two ways to bring unemployment down, and the easier of the two is to have people stop looking for work. ABBOTT: Now you're thinking like an Economist. COSTELLO: I don't even know what I just said! ABBOTT: Now you're thinking like a Liberal. ______________________________________________________ I noticed the neighbor down the street was home and sitting on his porch every day, so after a few weeks I asked him what was going on. He replied, "I left my job because of illness and fatigue." A few weeks later, his wife gave me the real truth of what happened. Turns out his boss got sick and tired of him. ______________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________ Mark, went into a convenience store to prepay for gasoline and returned with two plastic bottles of soda. As he filled the tank, his wife opened a bottle. To her dismay it fizzed and foamed all over her lap. Several miles down the road, Mark asked for his soda. Handing it to him, She warned, "Be careful. These are really over-carbonated." But when Mark opened his bottle, it barely hissed. Eyes on the road, he nonchalantly said, "You must have gotten the one I dropped." ______________________________________________________

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by David Lee, 46, South Union Township, Pennsylvania
Pennsylvanian heroin addict stabbed himself while trying to steal phone A Pennsylvania man is recovering after he accidentally stabbed himself while allegedly trying to steal a cellphone, according to CBS Pittsburgh Police in South Union Township said David Lee, 46, was in a Walmart Monday evening when he used a knife to remove a Straight Talk Wireless phone from the shelf. A few minutes later, they said Lee was in the automotive aisle when he used the knife to try and open the packaging. Instead, he allegedly stabbed himself in the arm, the website reports. Store employees happened to notice Lee bleeding excessively and approached him, according to HeraldStandard.com. Police said Lee tried to walk through the store while staff followed him. A trail of blood was dripping on the floor. Lee grabbed a towel off the shelf and wrapped it around his arm as he was trying to leave. Lee ran from the store and drove himself to a local hospital. However, the wound was so severe that he had to be flown to a Pittsburgh hospital, according to PennLive.com. A hazmat crew was called to the store to clean up the blood, according to WPXI.com. Police met up with Lee at the hospital and charged him with retail theft and disorderly conduct, according to the station. Lee is expected to survive his self-inflicted stabbing, his mother told local media, and blamed his use of heroin on the incident. Patty Lee told CBS Pittsburgh she "didnt think hed ever try that big of a stunt, but said he's addicted to heroin and I dont know where hes going to end up at. Some lawyer will probably get him to sue Walmart for packaging phones too well for heroin addicts.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Woodie Re: Filter email by keyword? Dear Webby, You mentioned that it is not agood idea to bounce mail back to a fake sender address, which I can absolutely understand. However, can you flag it for deleting if a keyword is there, but the sender is not in the white-list? I don't want to lose emails from friends, if they joke about things, that are typically mentioned in spam. Woodie Dear Woodie Yes, sure. With MailWasher you can definitely do that. When you compose a filter, you can click an exclusion for the Friends list. That way, if the sender is in the Friends list, the filter won't be applied. You can also use regular expressions to exclude just a handful of "authorized" addresses. Yes, you can use all the regular expressions like AND, AND / OR, BUT NOT IF, AND IF, etc. If you can compose a rule in plain English, then you can click together a filter to do just that. Making filters is easy and it becomes a game to outsmart the spammers. Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________ Six-year-old Jay's father was a rector in a small church. One day, his father told Jay that a very important bishop was coming and that he would be staying with them. Jay became very excited and asked his father if he would get to meet the bishop. His father thought about this and decided that he would let Jay bring the bishop tea in the morning and wake him up. Jay was very excited about the opportunity to do this. His father gave him instructions: first, knock on the door of the bishop's room and then say to him, "It's the boy, my Lord, it's time to get up." Jay was very excited and rehearsed his lines repeating them over and over. Finally, morning came and Jay rehearsed his lines. He went to the door and knocked. He was so excited and nervous though, that his lines got mixed up and Jay said, "It's the Lord, my boy, and your time is up!" ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Fizzy Cherry Popsicles I have been making a lot of popsicles lately and wanted to try something different. I thought that a Shirley Temple popsicle would be delicious. I used a naturally flavored carbonated water. There was no calories or artificial sweeteners. The kids loved it. They keep asking when I am going to make more! Approximate Time: a few minutes, plus freezing time Yield: as many as you would like Ingredients: Maraschino cherries & syrup carbonated water The one (I used cherry flavored) Steps: Pour some maraschino cherry syrup into your popsicle molds. I filled mine about 1/4 of the way. Plop in a cherry or two. Fill the rest of the mold with your carbonated water. Don't fill all the way, to make room for the mixture to expand while freezing. Add your popsicle tops. Freeze for a few hours until completely frozen. By Becky Miles [72] ______________________________________________________
