More secret Windows Settings

What this window actually displayed on 6-6-6
If you right-click My Computer and select properties, Bill Gates and friends present you with a window that has tabs that detail specific information about "My Computer" such as the computer name and workgroup membership, Hardware listings and Automatic Updates.

If you select the Automatic Updates tab, it tells you whether or not you've opted to receive automatic updates, the manner in which you receive them and exactly how often. The cheerful text at the top of the window proudly proclaims: Help protect your PC. That's a far cry from what the programmers originally wanted the text to say and if you press F12, you can see the original text.

Bullshit you say? Yeah, I just wanted to post a 666 entry...

The most intertesting SPAM return addresses this week...

Do you know me?
Don't ask me why I even bother scanning the list of garbage in my Yahoo! bulk mail folder. I don't think I could explain it beyond the fact that it is always good for at least one good chuckle, if not an outright belly laugh. Out of 515 emails in that folder, the return addresses on these caught my eye.

Confidential to the Dot Mistress...Yes, I am going to try to come around more often. While I don't know how often I'll post, I miss seeing what you are all up to so I'm spending more time cruising your pages.

The Hell that is Windows Event Viewer

Homeland Security compliments of
I spend a lot of time in Event Viewer. Sometimes this little tool takes me right to the heart of the problem so that I can get to a solution that much quicker.

Sometimes this little tool only leaves me more confused, like the day it told me that "the attempt to <Unknown> Phil1 has failed.

And then as you're researching these little MicroSnot gems, you run across something like this...

Because it's what we do...

We'll hold a place for you at the table...
One of the pleasures of living in a small town is knowing that there are people who take a genuine interest in your well being even though they have nothing to gain from your well being. By the same token they rally 'round when your well being is not on the well side.

This is the father of the friend who works on our cars. Dale's son and his son's wife are very nice people. They are a young couple with children. We don't exactly run in the same social circles so I haven't met Dale but I trust his son with my vehicle over any star NASCAR pit crew any day of the week. Nowhere in this notice does it say that Dale's been ill or how hard it's been on him financially. Nowhere has it been mentioned in conversation. We just know. And this, among other things, is what we do to help.

I love my small town.

If you're anywhere near Wamego, Kansas on the 20th, stop on by for some good grub and even better company.
