Re: Managed Desktop

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...

Re: Dancing?

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...

So ... I did this Google image search for Rowan Trees ... apparently it DOES depend on where you are at.

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...

Re: Dancing?

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...

Re: Peak Dating Ages

It's been known for a long time that older men prefer young women. But, the extremes suggested by the data are a bit surprising. 18 year old women never get more popular, so the data suggests. It takes men quite a few years to reach their prime time. The truly surprising thing I've observed first ha...

Peak Dating Ages

In 2018 there is an enormous amount of interest in dating apps. Eligible singles of all ages use them profusely. That fact lends itself to some interesting survey and research material. Maya Salam, a reporter for the New York Times, decided it would be interesting to try and determine the ages at wh...

Re: Managed Desktop

I'm pretty sure Yahoo was the only company offering SMS. Several years into the game Trillian also offered it, but they were simply hosting the Yahoo server without the Yahoo front end. Truth be told I started using Trillian because I didn't have to install the Yahoo software then; but it was still ...

Re: Free Drugs

Getting drugs without the need for a doctors order is an advantage. I'd suppose the reduced price is because the doctor is not getting his cut from the sale in that case. I'm probably too paranoid or well indoctrinated to get my drugs on the black (or grey) market. Desperation could change my attitu...

Re: 14 Year Old Governor

Eliminating government regulations is the name of the game these days. This lemonade story is a clear example of over-regulation. However, the laws are in place for good reason. The fact that you are an under aged minor vending drinks doesn't exempt you. As you say, there is a principle involved. Sp...

Re: Dancing?

I like the .pdf format because it is traceable. I have a copy of the original so that any alterations could be outed if necessary. As stated elsewhere, even the printer used to make the copy embeds a hidden code into most documents so that the source of the doc is traceable. It all seems bogus to me...

State Farm will cover named household items for replacement. This computer is a good example. l'd get a few hundred dollars for it off the main policy, but paying extra guarantees replacement. I don't know about house structural items. That's an interesting concept. If you do not insure for replacem...

Back in the day ... most of my texting was as you describe. I used a Yahoo Chat Client on my computer. One feature it had that no other chat client had was the ability to exchange SMS messages. I was given a special phone number for the Yahoo account to which the sender would send the text. Any mess...
