    Post your favorite OS

    ME and OS is an oxymoron. I thought 98SE was OK in its day, but it had to be SE. BTW, I use XP Pro, but Home is all I actually need for personal use. Haven't used anything but a Windows OS from day one. I'm too lazy to try to learn anything else. However, if I really get burned by Windows, I'll switch to Linux.

    Excel problems

    Makes sense to me. On your second worksheet (which I assume is in the same workbook) you would link to the Names and Totals cells in the first worksheet and place a sort on the second worksheet by selecting the cells (including the 'Name" and "Total" headings). Then go to Data>Sort on the menu bar and choose to Sort By: "Total" in descending order, Then By: "Name" in descending order. Hope I understood/explained it OK? If you want you can PM me and I'll give you my Email where you can forward a dummy file to me. I'll play with it and send it back.

    password manager software

    Yep! They only way I would use a password manager is if I didn’t care if someone somehow got a hold of it. It’s like when Windows asks me if I want it to remember the password for a particular site, I say no. Especially, if it has anything to do with finances. I know someone who stored his passwords in a Word document in an obscure folder on his PC. However, he would interject random characters (that he knew he never used) within each password. That way if someone compromised the file, they would not be able to use the passwords as written. Personally, mine are written down on paper with an obscure reference as to what it applies to, and I store them in a very secure place. As long as I don't somehow get nailed by a keylogger, I'm good to go.

    antivirus software

    This link? is pretty broad based as far as letting you know if an item listed in your MSCONFIG Startup is required or even legit. Just type the file name and extension in the search box. If it isn’t needed, uncheck it in MSCONFIG. If it’s a virus, you’ll need to take measures to remove it.

    Why do we still use qwerty?

    At 120 wpm why would you even bother? The only way I can type 120 wpm is if all the words are “a” and “I”.

    Steve "Croc Hunter" Urwin is dead

    Expertise vs. Risks vs. Probability: It just goes to show that no matter how much of an expert you are or think you are, there is always the unexpected that just might teach you a new and sometimes fatal lesson. You can push the envelope, but sometimes, the more you push it, the lower the odds in your favor become. I realize some people need to live life on the edge (kind of like being an astronaut, fighter pilot, stuntman or teacher in New York city’s school system). However, I’m not one of them.

    Labor Day Weekend

    As usual, very cool Ace. It just so happens that the way Labor Day falls this year is my significant other’s B’Day. So, we’ll celebrate both occasions with the flag flying. For us in the U.S., remember to fly the flag and do it properly. Labor Day weekend around here always means the Air Show. What better way to recognize our country’s labor force than a display of one segment of their labors. This year the feature performance is the NAVY Blue Angels. (From year to year, depending on their schedules, it alternates between them and the Air Force Thunderbirds. Both are great.) Some come by land. Some come by sea. The cool thing about being in a boat is that they’ll buzz right over you at times in order to position for the grandstands onshore. What a rush! You can actually see the pilot in the cockpit roaring over you and you have to cover your ears if you don’t have plugs or muffs.

    Aaaaahhh, another Bush basher. However, his policies and administration have directed more focus and bucks towards the space program than anyone else current or prior, international or domestic. As Bush continues to support space health and science technologies, as well as aeronautics, astronautics and deep space exploration and lead the way for the rest of the world, you can mock our President, while you (and the rest of the world) benefit from our science, efforts, and monetary expenditures. Sorry, I’m not in a good mood at the moment.

    I love it. They bash democracy, yet it is the foundation and principles of democracy that permits them to spew their anti democratic philosophies without retribution. Try being an activist focused on setting up a democratic government in China, North Korea, Iran, Cuba, etc. and see what happens to you. This is why I believe employers place too much emphasis on a college degree, when they should be concerned and focus more on basic core related courses and specialized or certified career training that is relevant to the position. The so called well rounded exposure a student is forced to endure, realistically doesn’t apply or yield squat to most employers. Worst case, their indoctrination could have adverse effects to a company’s business way of life once they get on the job. Maybe some day employers will wake up and see the light. That’s why the highest grade I ever got in 3 quarters of Sociology (35+ years ago) was a C+. I’d challenge them all the time and support my contradicting papers with facts and meaningful questions, but since I didn’t buy into their doctrine, I got a worse grade than other students who wrote a piece of crap paper, but drank their KoolAid. As far as they were concerned, our society was a mess and there was no way to convince them otherwise. I remember when Barry McGuire’s song “Eve of Destruction” got banned, so he cut a follow up song “Dawn of Correction”. Everything back then was focused on positive except in the halls of higher education where many humanities courses went against cultural and mainstream beliefs and painted everything in society as bleak. I look at the filth and garbage they allow over the airwaves nowadays, and I puke. You want to talk about a future that is bleak?

    tooth extraction

    Yeah, the same thing goes for tonsils. I know a guy who had his tonsils removed in his mid thirties. During surgery, the doctor had to elevate himself on something in order to get more leverage, so he could yank them out. Post surgery, he couldn’t talk for three weeks and his wife loved it. LOL. My father in law always told me: “Be true to your teeth, or they will be false to you.”

    Gender Roles in Eastern Asia? Someone’s paying hard earned dollars for this course that most likely has nothing to do with what you’ll be doing in life. I’d be surprised if .001% of American college students apply any facet of this course during their careers. And, if that number’s higher, I’d be worried. Man, I hate higher education. What a ripoff! Worse yet, is that there is some prof or associate (who specialized in these obscure courses) teaching this bunk who can only make a living because higher education dictates it to the students. Yay!

    tooth extraction

    I’m in my mid 50’s and none of my wisdom teeth ever surfaced. I guess that when I drank from the “Fountain of Knowledge” I must have only gargled. C’est la vie.

    Good Citizenship and Social Studies

    For what it’s worth, here’s something to ponder: "A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves money from the public treasure. From that moment on the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most money from the public treasury, with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world's great civilizations has been two hundred years. These nations have progressed through the following sequence: from bondage to spiritual faith, from spiritual faith to great courage, from courage to liberty, from liberty to abundance, from abundance to selfishness, from selfishness to complacency from complacency to apathy, from apathy to dependency, from dependency back to bondage." (Written more than a hundred years ago by Alexander Tyler about the fall of Athens.) http://home.flash.net/~gregball/largesse.htm or you can Google “Alexander Tyler” for other perspectives. I’m not giving credence to this philosophy, just something to ponder.

    This dispute has been going on for years, since the early ‘90’s. By today’s definition, Pluto as a planet is questionable. However, if scientists modify the definition of a planet so that it will include Pluto, it would end up including other new planets as well. Face it, if textbooks need to be reprinted, figure what NASA as a government agency has to revise? Bottom line, this decision will cost the U.S. taxpayer if it is left to stand as is. However, keeping Pluto and adding more new planets would be even more costly in the long run. I worked as a contractor at NASA for six years. They had a hugely distributed saying for school kids to remember the planets in our solar system. Something along the lines of: My (Mercury) Very (Venus) Educated (Earth) Mother (Mars) Just (Jupiter) Served (Saturn) Us (Uranus) Nine (Neptune) Pizzas (Pluto) Now, I reckon it would have to read something like: My (Mercury) Very (Venus) Emotional (Earth) Mother (Mars) Just (Jupiter) Served (Saturn) Us (Uranus) Nothing (Neptune) Oh, happy day! Pluto has been recognized as a planet all my life and I will continue to consider it a planet. Dwarf planet or not.
