Re: Managed Desktop

My first impression is that the Windows machine is infected with malware. It is particularly suspicious that it takes down your network. A simply case of a corrupt user account will not do that. It's a bit of a shotgun technique, but try this live CD approach to check for viruses: http://antivirusli...

Re: 14 Year Old Governor

I buy cream, the real thing, in quart containers like the one in the picture. The majority of brands have a round plastic spout with a pull tab to provide access to the cream. However, some still do it the old fashioned way and simply fold and seal the cardboard top into a pyramid kind of shape. You...

Re: Dancing?

Wearable computers are here already. They will only get better and more prolific as technology evolves. I never did understand why they tethered the wearable to a smart phone with the actual app in it. Maybe it's just their way to get you to buy smart phones, which is odd because the brand of the ph...

Re: Rock And Roll

The patching products you have listed aren't the same as what I had applied to my driveway. The reason I had the concrete "sealed" is to delay or prevent the need to patch it any time soon. Around here, and to a greater extent up near Chicago, the surface flakes off the driveway over time. The deter...

http://i67.tinypic.com/332cykw.jpg Here is a picture of my Thunderbird setup. As you can see, I use the "local" folders to sort out the junk I get in the regular email accounts. Some have filters to do the sorting, but I manually move things around most of the time. All of those accounts displayed ...

Re: Peak Dating Ages

We had mixers at that all male high school I attended. Normal people would call them socials or simply dances. I hear stories like yours from time to time. However, you have to keep in mind that the dating scene 17 years ago was nothing like it is today. I concede that long term relationships do com...

Re: Dancing?

The way things are going hard currency may become obsolete one day. All you will need is a smart phone you can wave over a sensor and voila. That means you and I will be in big trouble without a smart phone. LOL Which brings my attention to the fact that my flip phone is succumbing to the universal ...

Re: 14 Year Old Governor

You must remember the good old days when you could buy a carton of milk, unscrew the cap, and start drinking. That's not possible anymore with all the anti-tampering seals they put on foods these days. The producers were not happy about the requirement to protect the merchandise from being contamina...

Re: finnish sunset

I'm assuming each picture was taken in a different location. While the berry colors are close to matching, they are all different. Thus I concluded that location matters.

Back about the time I was doing the Yahoo SMS thing, Microsoft invented Messenger. It was their version of what Yahoo was doing sans the SMS. Since Motorola had a sweetheart deal with them, Microsoft gave us software to do exactly what you and your wife do. We could send messages to other people via...

Re: 14 Year Old Governor

The best job I had as a kid was mopping the floors in a bakery after they closed shop. I had to do the front display area as well as the back room where they did all the baking. The pay was cheap, but I had permission to eat all the cookies I cared to on the premises. That's the only reason I worked...

The paper used for US currency is sold to one customer and one customer only: the US Treasury Department. Even if you should happen to get your hands on the paper, the ink and watermarks are special. They claim it's damned near impossible to counterfeit US currency these days because of all the tric...

Re: Rock And Roll

They did the acid wash on our driveway too, but only one small spot by the street was oily. I asked how long this seal was going to last and they said only a year or two at most. I guess I'll live with that, but the next time around I will be looking for something like the product you used. A ten ye...

Re: Peak Dating Ages

Not having any personal experience to go by, I have always had this suspicion about dating sites. They are all about one thing, and one thing only. Sex. I have heard a story or two about successful dates leading to long term marriages, but if that is true at all, it is not the norm. Finding a mate t...

Re: Managed Desktop

I use both web mail and a desktop client, Thunderbird. I also fell in love with Eudora and was sad to see them go. They were bought out by some other company who charged for the e-mail software they took over. In my case I got a "free" license from them; something about a grandfather clause. The new...

Re: Rock And Roll

Insurance coverage can be a difficult thing to understand for the uninitiated. Like yourself, over the years I've been fairly treated every time I had to put in a claim. I think that part of our success with insurance had to do with the fact that my wife worked for insurance companies all her profes...

My understanding is that the metadata is not part of the picture but is information appended to the file. I have indeed used Windows to clean the metadata from photographs; it's fairly simple in fact and part of the Properties function. There are also 3rd party editors to manipulate and/or erase the...

Re: 14 Year Old Governor

I know very little about the labor laws, but it's hard to believe children are protected only from hazardous work. It suggests kids can be used in place of migrant workers on farms to pick crops, for example, without violating any laws. Yes, the owners' kids should be exempt, but it's hard work none...
