AAARRRGGGHHH!



I am having MAJOR computer issues today at work, picked up a trojan from some idiot in the network, now just posting on a wireless connection that is so far unaffected.

Former idiot employee was a porn freak so I suspect he left the door open to malware.

Carry on, I'll be off and on until I am fixed here.

Please listen to this 60 minute audiotape! It offers great information for the inquiring mind.

Anthrax was a terrorist attack by our CIA in Nazi America.

Gerald said...

Which brings up the point I started with. If the US Government is behind the Anthrax attacks, and from the evidence, it is obvious. Then 9/11 was indeed an inside job. No one punished or even reprimanded, but instead promoted for their "failures,” on 9/11 and no arrests from the anthrax attacks that immediately followed. This is just one of the many smoking guns lying around.

Posted this morning on the other thread that the updates were waiting for me when I booted up this morning. I printed out your advice, Den, then downloaded, installed and restarted. Everything went ok. Phew.

Alan said...

Last night, I deleted all cookies and temp. internet files. Ran AdAware and deleted desktop copies of recently opened files, then installed the Windows updates. Instead of restarting, I shut down.
Started up this morning just fine, good as new.

Alan said...

Wait.
Carol, you said "...the updates were waiting for me when I booted up this morning."

Are you saying they downloaded without you? Do you leave the computer "on" instead of asleep? That sounds dangerous, especially if you don't have a hardware firewall (router).

DEN said...

OK back to business, the updates were not my issue it was water being poured into my hard drive that did me in.

G-friend dumped it but thought none went in even though I sat for an hour trying to make the soggy thing run, when I tipped it over my hand got wet from the water running out!

Immediate disassembly and blowing it out with air saved it.

PITA!!!

75-Year-Old Twins Accept Challenge

“What can two 75-year-old ladies like us do?” Marjorie Maitland asked her sister Marguerite. Their minister had challenged the twins and other students in a discipleship class to do something to help the community.

After researching ideas, the sisters decided to start a fund, which would reward youngsters in their school district who remained drug free through high school graduation.

“We took donations, applied for grants, and had bake sales. We even got in touch with alumni dating all the way back to 1915,” Maitland notes. “Marge and I are now 90 years old, and the project is going strong. We’ve got it set up so that it will go on even after we’re gone.”

The sisters accepted their minister’s challenge and learned that one person can make a difference. “Well, two in this case,” says Marguerite Maitland.

They’re leaving an admirable legacy we could all emulate.

Encourage the fainthearted, help the weak. (1 Thessalonians 5:14)

Who needs whatever encouragement I can provide, Good Shepherd?

From the UNFREAKINGBELIEVABLE catagory:

Two men wheeled a dead man through the streets in an office chair to a check-cashing store and tried to cash his Social Security check before being arrested on fraud charges, police said.

David J. Dalaia and James O'Hare pushed Virgilio Cintron's body from the Manhattan apartment that O'Hare and Cintron shared to Pay-O-Matic, about a block away, spokesman Paul Browne said witnesses told police.

"The witnesses saw the two pushing the chair with Cintron flopping from side to side and the two individuals propping him up and keeping him from flopping from side to side," Browne said.

The men left Cintron's body outside the store, went inside and tried to cash his $355 check, Browne said. The store's clerk, who knew Cintron, asked the men where he was, and O'Hare told the clerk they would go and get him, Browne said.

A police detective who was having lunch at a restaurant next to the check-cashing store noticed a crowd forming around Cintron's body, and "it's immediately apparent to him that Cintron is dead," Browne said.

The detective called uniformed New York Police Department officers at a nearby precinct. Emergency medical technicians arrived as O'Hare and Dalaia were preparing to wheel Cintron's body into the check-cashing store, Browne said. Police arrested Dalaia and O'Hare there, he said.

Cintron's body was taken to a hospital morgue. The medical examiner's office told police it appeared Cintron, 66, had died of natural causes within the previous 24 hours, Browne said.

"He was deceased in the apartment when he was removed by these two," Browne said.

Dalaia and O'Hare, both 65, were being held by police and faced check fraud charges, Browne said.

A call to a telephone number listed for Cintron at the apartment he shared with O'Hare went unanswered Tuesday evening. Police said they didn't have an address for Dalaia or attorney information for him or O'Hare.

Weekend at Bernies Check Cashing!

Comedians could not make this stuff up!

I hate to say it but Ken would have loved that story. He had Weekend at Bernie's and all the sequels on the TV aplenty.

Hmmmm.

Alan said...

And Barack has tapped into a great soundbyte for those despairing if we can ever get this country back from the darkness of Bush & Cheney years: Yes, we can.

But in the unlikely story that is America, there has never been anything false about hope. For when we have faced down impossible odds; when we’ve been told that we’re not ready, or that we shouldn’t try, or that we can’t, generations of Americans have responded with absimple creed that sums up the spirit of a people. Yes we can.

It was a creed written into the founding documents that declared the destiny of a nation. Yes we can.

It was whispered by slaves and abolitionists as they blazed a trail toward freedom through the darkest of nights. Yes we can.

It was sung by immigrants as they struck out from distant shores and pioneers who pushed westward against an unforgiving wilderness. Yes we can.

It was the call of workers who organized; women who reached for the ballot; a President who chose the moon as our new frontier; and a King who took us to the mountaintop and pointed the way to the Promised Land.

Yes we can to justice and equality. Yes we can to opportunity and prosperity. Yes we can heal this nation. Yes we can repair this world. Yes we can.

=====================
Hillary had a pretty good speech too. I seen an article about it with the link titled "Iron THIS" haha

Hillary Should Be President

Dear Posters:

I have been objective in my assessment of Hillary. I have tried to share the positive and the negative about her candidacy. I have concluded that she should be president. I have no doubt in this belief.

Some people will ask me why?

I believe that Hillary is not only a good candidate but her life is an open book. Hillary has been praised and vilified across our country and the world. We know Hillary. I also believe that a known is better than an unknown.

Hillary would be good for America and the world. She has been attacked; she has had to overcome lies about her; and she has weather the storm. Hillary is the right person at the right time.

What may keep Hillary from the White House may be that she is too good of a candidate and Nazi Americans prefer to have mass murderers and war criminals in the White House. We are a violent people and that is the American way. She may be too good to serve us as a people as we revel in our evil ways.

Sincerely,
Gerald

Gerald said...

Hillary

Dear Posters:

Here is my thought on Hillary. Before I share my thought, I want to say first of all there will be no 2008 presidential elections. It will take a miracle for the United States of Evil to have these elections. We know that only God can bestow upon us a miracle. I, personally, do not know if He will give us this miracle.

Let us say that by some miracle we do have the 2008 presidential elections. I do not know if Hillary Clinton will receive her party’s nomination. I do believe that she is the most qualified of the 2008 Democratic presidential candidates. As far as the Republican presidential candidates she is as qualified or better qualified than all the Republican candidates. She, as president, will not hurt the country. She is in fact more qualified than Hitler Bush and he has been president for almost seven years. Hitler Bush is a murderer and a war criminal. Murderers have to rationalize why they murder. They come to believe that they murder for the common good. Murdering God’s children for the common good is ridiculous.

Sincerely,
Gerald

Alan, no, no, no. I turn the computer off every night. When I booted up this morning the little shield on the task bar appeared. I don't let them download anything. I do it. I do the custom install so nothing untoward gets downloaded that I don't want downloaded.

Like IE 7. Since I use Firefox I didn't want the new version so I stopped it.

I am sharing this poem:

Viscous Thinking

(A poem by Max Photon)

Big idiots have little idiots,
That feed on their lucidity.
Little idiots have smaller idiots,
And so on to stupidity.

David B. Benson said...

Here's another:

The Smile of the Walrus

The Smile of the Walrus is wild and distraught,
And tinged with pale purples and greens,
Like the Smile of a Thinker who thinks a Great Thought
And isn't quite sure what it means.


by Oliver Herford

Richardson throws in the towel.

Dana Milbank of WAPO is a Bonesman, a frequent pundit on KO.

Hell is welcoming our little handbasket.

Carey said...

Not huge news about Richardson.

David, those poems were just splendiforous.

ahhh, ok I put mine to sleep, and only turn it off about once a week. Since I added more memory, I'm not sure how long it'd last before a restart. Longer than a week anyway... and I surf alot too.

Weird JuJu in the air, feels like fear in the background, unsteady.

Something bad is going to happen.

Yup Doc, I'm paranoid

Hey Googles, I'm still here!

Alan said...

Max Photon is a good poet. Maybe he should stick to that... because his conspiracy theories are like the smaller idiots that made it to stupidity.

DEN said...

Thats better,

Now as I was saying, something feels strange to me, and i only had 2 beers and don't have gas.

The calm before the storm,
what storm?

Earthquake, Earths energy flux has changed here in the last week or so, could not quite put my finger on it but that might be it.

or i'm paranoid, or crazy, or both.

goodnite

Den -- perhaps these are clues to what you're feeling:

Magnitude-6.7 quake hits near B.C. coast

Updated Sat. Jan. 5 2008 7:31 PM ET

Earthquake Shakes British Columbia's Queen Charlotte Islands

By Demian McLean
Jan. 9 (Bloomberg) -- An earthquake of magnitude 6.2 magnitude struck the northwestern tip of British Columbia this morning, rattling the Canadian province's Queen Charlotte Islands, according to U.S. geologists.

The temblor struck at 6:40 a.m. local time and was centered about 171 miles (275 kilometers) northwest of Port Hardy, the U.S. Geological Survey said. No injuries were reported.

Nobody’s ever going to say exactly when a great, destructive earthquake will strike, but it’s sure interesting trying to figure it out.

A couple of earthquakes between Vancouver Island and the Queen Charlotte Islands over the past weekend have got everybody buzzing at the Earth Sciences Centre in Sidney.

“Two at six and half is quite exciting and it’s keeping us very busy,” said Seismologist Alison Bird.

On Saturday, Jan. 5 at 3:01 a.m. and 3:44 a.m. two strong earthquakes (magnitude 6.5) occurred about 220 km WSW of Bella Bella.

Over all, 2007 earthquake activity was fairly typical in the central Vancouver Island area but the earth’s crust -- or the portion of it that lies over western British Columbia -- was especially restless in nearby locations.

“The activity that we saw in early October in the upper Baezaeko River region was very exciting because we’d never seen it there before,” Bird said.

October’s quakes, about 100 kilometres west of Quesnel and 35 miles deep, occurred where no earthquakes have been recorded for 7,000 years.

But, I'd still rather die of an earthquake in Bellingham, than of boredom in Cleveland. :-))

Thanks for the birfday greetings.

Older...but wiser?????????

There once was a country that thought it was great,
It believed its own press notices, ignoring its fate,
It scorned the forming,
Of global warming,
And wallowed in trivia until it was too late.

There once was a nation that was led like sheep,
The media entertained them into deep sleep,
One day they awoke,
To find things were broke,
But it was past time, their sleep was too deep.

Hey, I am checking this blog using the phone and this appears to be kind of odd. Thought you'd wish to know. This is a great write-up nevertheless, did not mess that up.
