Is W10 a security risk ? 



Good Morning, ,
Today is Sunday, September 27.

The wind changed to NorthWest and the skies cleared. Now
the moon is super bright and sharp as a steet light. It is
now too bright to see the craters and mountains, just a
very bright button, and appearing smaller than yesterday's
big, slightly fuzzy harvest moon. 
Still pretty out, but a definite fall chill in the air.

Have FUN!

About midway through the meeting, a wife of one of the farmers stood up and spoke her piece. One of the old farmers stood up and said, "What does she know about anything? I would like to ask her if she even knows how many toes a pig has?" Quick as a flash, the woman replied, "Take off your boots Jake, and count them yourself!" ______________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________ A father and son went fishing one day. After a couple hours out in the boat, the boy suddenly became curious about the world around him. He asked his father, "How does this boat float?" The father thought for a moment, then replied, "I Don't rightly know, son." The boy returned to his contemplation, then turned back to his father, "How do fish breath underwater?" Once again the father replied, "Don't rightly know, son." A little later the boy asked his father, "Why is the sky blue?" Again, the father replied. "Don't rightly know, son." Worried he was going to annoy his father, he says, "Dad, do you mind my asking you all of these questions?" "Of course not son. If you don't ask questions,... you'll never learn anything!" ______________________________________________________

Thanks to Don for reporting this bonehead! An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Jason Tackett, 38, Bradenton, Floriduh
Florida man arrested for assaulting girlfriend when she read ex-boyfriend's obituary A Florida man was arrested after he assaulted and strangled his live-in girlfriend. He is evidently the most jealous and insecure boyfriend who ever lived. Police say 38-year-old Jason Tackett went crazy because his girlfriend was reading her ex-boyfriend's obituary on her phone. Apparently feeling a little jealous and upset about possibly losing her to a dead ex, Tackett flew into a rage and "began tearing the house apart. He then threw the woman to the floor and held his hands over her mouth and nose, leaving her unable to breathe. Neighbors called police. Tackett was arrested for domestic battery by strangulation. He was released on $10,000 bail and ordered to stay away from the woman.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Faye Re: Is W10 a security problem? Dear Webby Is it true that W10 is a huge security and privacy problem? Faye Dear Faye From what I have read, security is not too bad. Considering how China has obtained and sold the bank and tax info and the fingerprints of 50 Million federal employees, by comparison W10 is actually not bad. The word from above is that when you install W10 your should not accept ANY defaults, and select "Customize" whenever you get a chance. The defaults apparently are an open barn door. The same applies to Privacy. Sure, Microsoft collects any and all data from your weight to your bra size and/or inserts, and of course your spending habits. Relax, they don't personally look at your data and discuss them during company committee meetings or coffee breaks. With Billions of victims, that would be totally impossible. They just collect the data and make pretty graphs. The graphs show that female W10 victims average bra size is 32 B and spending habits are 104% of her income. Of course they also list shoe buying preferences. Yeah, so what? Sure they sell that info to anybody and everybody in marketing anywhere in the world. They do not indentify you. While some people get annoyed about browser ads gluing to previous searches, for example if you search for Flax seeds, then all of a sudden the ads are related to flax seeds, even if you already found a distributor and bought a big bag full. That is just your search engine trying to be helpful. Again, there is nobody recording what YOU searched for, as long as you stay off certain topics, that the Feds require notification about. Currently those topics are: Explosives, ISIS, terrorism and Child Porn. However, even with those topics, they just record your enails and browsing. As long as you don't actually DO anything bad, nobody looks at it. Remember the Boston Marathon bombers? The CIA and the FBI DID have all their data, and it helped them to catch their associates, but it took the feds a month to actually read and analyze the recorded data. And those were supposedly high profile evildoers! As long as you don't get caught with anything really evil, nobody will look at your data. Have FUN!

The triage nurse asked for her height and weight, and she blurted out, "Five-foot-nine, 125 pounds." While the nurse pondered over this information, her sister leaned over to her. "Trishia," she gently chided, "This is not the Internet." ____________________________________________________
