The Difference Between Grandmothers & Grandfathers

Have you ever wondered what the difference is between Grandmothers and Grandfathers?

 Well, here it is:

    There was this loving grandfather who always made a special effort to spend time with his son’s family on weekends. Every Saturday morning he would take his 7-year-old granddaughter out for a drive in the car for some quality time — just him and his granddaughter.
    One particular Saturday, however, he had a bad cold and really didn’t feel like being up at all. He knew his granddaughter always looked forward to their drives and would be disappointed.  Luckily, his wife came to the rescue and said that she would take their granddaughter for the drive.
    When they returned, the little girl anxiously ran upstairs to see her grandfather who was still in bed.
“Well, did you enjoy your ride with grandma?” he asked.
“Oh, yes, PapPap,  it was really wonderful.  We didn’t see a single asshole, blind bastard, dipshit or son of a bitch anywhere we went!”

Almost brings a tear to your eye, doesn’t it?

iPhone Find My Phone login problem

With the new iPhone version 4.2 Apple has made the Find My Phone feature of MobilMe free. If you have the old ID style login and not an email address you will have trouble logging in. The fix below worked for me. I found it here on the Apple forums.

Easy Fix that worked for me that you can try:

Follow these steps:

1. Visit http://store.apple.com/us. Login using your normal iTunes login
3. Click on the “Account” link next to the shopping cart basket
4. Now Click Account information
5. Next view Apple ID field and complete it with your normal iTunes Apple ID email that you always use example joesmith@yahoo.com
6. Check that all info and password fields are completed and click continue.

Apple will now verify your account. You can now go back to your phone settings menu and follow the steps here http://www.apple.com/iphone/find-my-iphone-setup/
Again, I hope this helps a lot of folks and it amazes me still how there is no official response regarding this setup issue although they left a small unclear hint on that setup page…

If you have an iTunes Store account or have ordered from the Apple Online Store, you already have an Apple ID.

So, you don’t need to create new accounts, you just need to edit your existing one through the Apple online store to reflect your full email address.

Also you will need to update your App Store login to match your updated settings or else you will get a wrong password message.

1. Goto Settings and chose “Store” from the menu
2. Sign Out of Store
3. Now log back in using the full email instead of just user id

Why am I depressed??

Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel ,
“Pick up your shovels, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you
to the Promised Land.”

Nearly 75 years ago (when Welfare was introduced), Roosevelt said, “Lay
down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a Camel, this is the
Promised Land.”

Today, Obama has stolen your shovel, taxed your asses, raised the price
of camels and mortgaged the Promised Land!

I was so depressed last night thinking about healthcare plans, the
economy, the wars, lost jobs, savings, Social Security, retirement
funds, etc. I called a Suicide Hotline. 
I had to press 1 for English. I was connected to a call center in
Pakistan . I told them I was suicidal.

They got excited and asked if I could drive a truck……

Cisco VPN Key decoder

Ok so I have had a few times now when nobody remembers what the VPN passwords are as we just exchange profile files. If you want to go back and look them up you can’t as they are hidden both on the client and on the firewall ends. This cool little page will allow you to take the encrypted string from the .pcf file and decrypt it back to the original password. Very slick.

SMTP Service for IIS Won’t Start

I recently installed the SMTP service on a new server and it would not start. I would receive an error to check the event log but nothing was even logged. What ended up fixing the problem was the following:

Check this registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\SMTPSVC for a dword value called Start. If it’s not there, create a dword key called Start and set the value to 2.

I had the key but the value was set to 4. I changed it to be 2 and restarted the server and all worked as it should. Weird eh???

As always use caution when you edit the registry and backup your system first.

Smart Ass

Two young businessmen in Florida were sitting down for a break  in their soon-to-be new store in the shopping mall.  As yet, the store  wasn’t ready, with only a few shelves  and display racks set up.   

One said to  the other, “I’ll bet that any minute  now some senior is going to walk by, put his face to the  window, and ask  what we’re selling.”
 
Sure enough, just a moment later,  a curious senior gentleman walked  up to the window,  looked around intensely and rapped on the glass,  then in a loud voice asked, “What are you sellin’ here?”
 
 One of the men replied sarcastically, “We’re selling ass-holes.” 

Without skipping a beat, the old timer said,  “You’re doing well.  Only two left.”
 
 Seniors — don’t mess with them, they’ve been around!
