  1. Updated to Free v 2.0 from v 1.75 GUI. The look will take some getting used to, but I think we will get used to it. Thanks to all of you for your hard work coming up with the latest version. Ron - W3FSY (58 years in Ham Radio).
  2. I know you have been lying awake at night wondering why baby diapers have brand names such as "Luvs", "Huggies," and "Pampers', while undergarments for old people are called "Depends". Well here is the low down on the whole thing. When babies go in their pants, people are still gonna Luv'em, Hug'em and Pamper' em. When old people go in their pants, it "Depends" on who's in the will! Glad I got that straightened out so you can rest your mind.
  3. An elderly couple had just learned how to send text messages on their cell phones. The wife was a romantic type and the husband was more of a no-nonsense guy. One afternoon the wife went out to meet a friend for coffee.She decided to send her husband a romantic text message and she wrote: "If you are sleeping, send me your dreams. If you are laughing, send me your smile. If you are eating, send me a bite. If you are drinking, send me a sip. If you are crying, send me your tears. I love you." The husband texted back to her: "I'm on the toilet. Please advise."
  4. I made the switch to Windows 7 on Apr. 1st of this year after using Windows XP for years and by purchasing a refurbished tower with Windows 7 installed on it. I downloaded and installed the free Libre Office for taking care of my word processing.
  5. Thanks for the reminder, daledoc1. All updated I.E. 9 and FX.
  6. Nice yard pics, Tom. Your going to miss the place thats for sure. Hi to cazza007 (mumsboy), also.
  7. It sure is hard to beat the "Big Bang Therory" for comedy. I even enjoy watching the old repeats the second or third time around. W3FSY - Ron
  8. Unbelievable! Great humor! "Where do you find them all? W3FSY - Ron
  9. I can't resist posting guys. I was a user of Windows XP since 2001 using a new Dell Inspiron desktop w/ a 320 gb HD and considered Windows XP to be an untouchable OS till I made an upgrade to Windows 7 Professional OS with a "refurbished" Dell Optiplex 740 tower I picked up on-line from Wal-Mart on March 31st of this year. Sure they supplied a genertic keyboard and mouse that were not quite up to standard, but I ended up with a 1 tb HD and a OS I'm quite happy with. I sure the heck didn't want to go the route of Windows 8 which is about all that is available anymore. I downloaded Libre Office and put it on to take the place of using Word. Documents even look like they were done with Word. A lot of free programs are available if you look around. Windows 7 is a bit different than XP, but I would never go back in time. I like the idea of having an "Administrator" account for access to all programs and updates something that was not necessary with Windows XP as I had it set up. W3FSY - Ron
  10. Post number 2 was sort of misunderstood. I saw the video was not showing compressions being made with being a recent YouTube video. My apology to all that misunderstood. "New CPR with no compressions being done" (A question mark should of been added, I suppose.) My "Bad"! I should of known better with being retired after working for 40 years as a "Pre-Press Printer-Compositor" for a well known company that prints tickets worldwide. I am not in the medical field. An untrained person in CPR such as I know better as I've viewed videos of the "New CPR being performed with compressions". With the distaught father freaking out dashing around, I did not observe the child choking. The video was not that clear. I saw someone making a cell phone call but no response was made by any "Emergency" personnel. Ron
  11. So, who is worried more now - The Photographer or the Pilot?? Good one, Stick! W3FSY - Ron
  12. A grateful distraught father now I'm sure. The "New CPR with no compressions being done" from what I noticed. Great video, Olivia!
  13. Biblical Origin of the Internet In ancient Israel, it came to pass that a trader called "Abraham of Com" did take unto himself a young wife by the name of Dot. And "Dot of Com" was a comely woman, broad of shoulder and long of leg. Indeed, she had often been called "Amazon Dot Com". And she said unto Abraham, her husband, "Why dost thou travel far from town to town with thy goods when thou canst trade without ever leaving thy tent?" And Abraham did look at her as though she were several saddle bags short of a camel load, but simply said, "How might I do that my dear?" And Dot replied, "I will place drums in all the towns and drums in between to send messages saying what you have for sale and they will reply telling you which hath the best price. And the sale can be made on the drums and delivery made by Uriah's Pony Stable (UPS)." Abraham thought long and decided he would let Dot have her way with the drums. And the drums rang out and were an immediate success. Abraham sold all the goods he had at the top price, without ever moving from his tent. But this success did arouse envy. A man named Maccabia did secrete (look it up, it means to hide) himself inside Abraham's drum and was accused of insider trading. And the young man did take to Dot Com's trading as doth the greedy horsefly take to camel dung. They were called Nomadic Ecclesiastical Rich Dominican Siderites, or NERDS for short. And lo, the land was so feverish with joy at the new riches and the deafening sound of drums that no one noticed that the real riches were going to the drum maker, one Brother William of Gates, who bought up every drum company in the land. And indeed did insist on making drums that would work only with Brother Gates' drumheads and drumsticks. And Dot did say, "Oh, Abraham, what we have started is being taken over by others". And as Abraham looked out over the Bay of Ezekiel , or as it came to be known 'eBay' he said, "We need a name that reflects what we are". And Dot replied, "Young Ambitious Hebrew Owner Operators". 'YAHOO!' exclaimed Abraham. And that is how it all began. Al Gore had absolutely nothing to do with it.
