Final Thought

Nite!

04 May

Why is it…

that people think that having Admin Rights solves all that is wrong with the world? I’ve received a couple requests from clients who want Admin Rights to their machines at work so they can apply patches, etc. What they don’t recognize is that they also are leaving their machines open to more damage by doing […]

Doya Think

that society will ever get to the point where you can go and pick the music you want on a cd, pay for it, and walk out of the store with a custom made disc? What if it were possible to do the same thing selecting music videos and walk out with a custom DVD? […]

Vote!

Well, on the East Cost (and probably in Central time as well) the voting is over. The Polls closed at 7. Not an important election this go round (the asshats who coudln’t get the budget straightened out aren’t up for election until November), but, we voted for Mayor (unopposed), City Council (choose 3) and two […]

Attack of the Sasser!

I think a server here has taken a hit, as every machine that has rebooted has tested clean for the virus, and has had it’s virus protection updated. Needless to say, it’s made this afternoon far more interesting than it should have been… LOL. Gotta love all these viruses. NOT.

Everything Old Is New Again

I guess this has been going on for a while, but I’ve just really started noticing it, where artists will go back and revisit songs they recorded and that may have made them famous, and do a modern day take on them. Dionne Sings Dionne (Dionne Warwick), The Trouble With Angels (Juice Newton), Safe Return […]

Ain’t It The Truth (Part Whatever)

04 May

Ouch

Thanks to Ms. Peg for passing this groaner on. One day a blonde woke up from a horrible sleep and realized that she hurt everywhere she touched! So she went to the doctor and told him, “I don’t know what to do doctor, I am in pain everywhere!” “When I touch my arm it hurts. […]

Women Over 40

This item was not penned by Andy Rooney as it is oft credited; it is an embellished version of a piece created by Frank Kaiser, a columnist whose Suddenly Senior articles are published on his web site and syndicated to a variety of newspapers across the U.S. “As I grow in age, I value women […]

Thought For The Day

To me, old age is fifteen years older than I am. — Bernard M. Baruch

04 May

How long until…

I can wear a purple outfit and a red hat? Isn’t that what you “women of age” do? I live in fear that I’m going to wake up and parts of me are going to be missing. I already creak, pop, and sound like an old clunker of a car that should be put out […]

Pope On A Rope

Seems that the Pope has decided that if you can be kept alive by any means, then you are to be. Under Virginia law, receiving nutrition and water through a tube is a procedure adults can refuse by writing a “living will” that details the medical treatments they don’t want if injury or disease leaves […]

Various Link-Luv™

I’ve decided to break down the Link-Luv™ into smaller, more digestible bits, with comments about what I’m linking to, more than just a sentence. Commissar has posted an article about revisionism (which you gentle Blog readers know that I abhor). I’m sorry, we can’t just paint over the portions of history that we don’t like…or […]

A couple things on my mind

Let’s see: First, something I wish had been implemented in MT 3.0, for it *MIGHT* have made a lot of people’s lives easier: If you wish to leave URLs in comments or with your username, you have to register with the blog. Otherwise, just your name shows up to the reader. (The blog admin still […]

The Answer Is

127. That is how many attempts (successful and not) to spam Ramblings of Silver Blue and it’s family of blogs. I hope that when MT 3.0 is released there’s something built in that will help, or maybe it’s just not meant for comments to be built into the program.
