______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: CyberGrannie Re: Partitions Dear Webby I have a HP laptop with w7 and it has 4 "partitions" or rather that is what it looks like. This is what it looks like: 8 GB ram Hard disk drives 4: C: 275GB D: 298GB F (recovery) 21.9Gb G: (HP tools) 99.3MB It seems these are not partitions so I cannot combine Disk 1 (C drive) and disk 2 (D drive) This seems so ridiculous. Do you know of any way that I can combine these 2 "disks"? This laptop was just restored to original state (with 2 original disks). Dear CyberGrannie That looks OK. Why combine them? By the way, D: might be a removable "drive" like DVD. Just use them as they are. You would not gain anything by combining them anyway. For example, I have always used my E: drive for tools and programs, and my F: drive for data, that I have produced. Having extra drives or partitions allows you to have short destination, like for example E:\Alpha\Eudora instead of having my email program buried deep down in the wacky chaos on C: Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________ Arthur came home after a late-night poker game and was greeted by Sandra, his nagging, sourpussed wife. "And just where have you been all night?," sandra screeched at him. "Playing cards," says Arthur, "but that's not important. What matters is that I lost you to Bubba Smith." "Lost me!!" Sandra screamed, "How did you manage that?" "It was a heartbreaker," Michael admitted. "I had to fold with a royal flush." ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Dieter's Chocolate Mousse This is very simple. No cooking and you can make it the strength or quantity you desire. Just take natural Greek style yoghurt, or any other non flavored yoghurt. Add cooking style cocoa powder. This has no added sugars at all. You can also add vanilla. Simply mix it up in whatever strength you want. You do have to mix thoroughly because the cocoa powder seems to sit on the surface. You can make it a strong or weak chocolaty taste, getting your "chocolate fix" without the guilt. If it is a bit strong, you can always add a few drops of pure vanilla essence. That's it, simple! Approximate Time: INSTANTLY Yield: WHATEVER YOU MIX UP. Source: NO. MY OWN CONCOCTION. I HAVE NO IMAGE BECAUSE THE IMAGE IS WHAT IT IS.

_____________________________________________________ Norrissa was nervous the night her new boyfriend invited her and her three young sons to an upscale restaurant for the first time. He ordered a bottle of wine with the meal. When the server brought it, the children became quiet as she began the ritual uncorking. When the waitress poured a small amount for Norissa to taste and handed her the glass, her six-year-old piped up, "Mom usually drinks a LOT more than that!" ___________________________________________________"> src="" align=left>

____________________________________________________ Noella's brother has just returned from a visit to Israel and reported to her this about elevators in Israel: Apparently Shabat is the Sabbath and in some cities, it is observed faithfully. On that day, the elevators are set to stop at every floor so no one has to "work" and press a button. Usually there is one elevator that is still and does not run except for opening and closing doors. The doors stay closed for 7 minutes and then open - while the elevator doesn't move. One never knows which elevator is the Shabat elevator. So people will get on it accidentally, the doors close and 7 minutes go by. The door opens, everyone gets off and the elevator fills up with new people. Meanwhile the people who just got off are trying to tell the new ones - don't get on, it won't go anywhere. But of course no one listens, so the process starts all over and continues all day long! ____________________________________________________
