IWEB is Apple’s version of a webpage builder.

It doesn’t do a table?

I have a spreadsheet of my High School alums with a link to their page. I thought it would be easy to put it into an IWEB site.

Thought wrong!


Even if I had to rebuild the table in IWEB, that, while upsetting, would be “good enough”.


So, it seems there’s no way to do it.

VERIZONWIRELESS BACKUPASSISTANT is supposed to backup my contacts from my cell phone.

The website has a last backup date of June 11, 2010; I changed some yesterday.

It’s NOT keeping a current backup.


For warned is fore armed!

SERVICE: VERIZON text from web is poorly designed

Monday, June 28, 2010


I sent a text message from the Verizon web site. (Yes, I was signed in despite the website’s design flaws about sign in.)

It gave me a response.

So I went merely on my way.

Never received a response. So I “texted” again from my cell this time.

I get a return phone call from the recipient asking me “if I’ve lost my mind”.

They received it and replied.

So, now I go check on the website and it’s like “what text message”.

If I have a tracking number AND the recipient, it can check.


I don’t have the 27 digit tracking number. (OK, I made that part up about 27 digit. But it’s a lot.)

And, apparently it doesn’t log it anywhere on the machine. Or, warn you that you’re goign to need it.

But where did the response go?

Argh! Squared!!

Verizon — not recommended. (Not that any of the others are much better from what I understand.)

Argh! Cubed!!!

(2) When was 24 hour support eliminated?

SOFTWARE: Falling back to FIREFOX3 from Chrome

Sunday, June 20, 2010

Two items:

(1) No color tabs and other flaws in the tabs

(2) CARINGBRIDGE has a journal update window. Under Chrome, when you hit return it move the cursor back to the top. Too annoying to tolerate.

Falling back. Argh!

*** begin quote ***

I felt compelled to pass this on and do my part.


Don’t forget to mark your calendars. As you may already know, it is a sin for a Muslim male to see any woman other than his wife naked. He must commit suicide if he does. So next Saturday at 4 PM Eastern Time, all American women are asked to walk out of their house completely naked to help weed out any neighborhood terrorists. Circling your block for one hour is recommended for this anti-terrorist effort. All patriotic men are to position themselves in lawn chairs in front of their house to prove they are not Muslims and to demonstrate they think its okay to see nude women other than their wife and to show support for all American women. Since Islam also does not approve of alcohol, a cold 6-pack at your side is further proof of your anti-Muslim sentiment. The American government appreciates your efforts to root out terrorists and applauds your participation in this anti-terrorist activity.

God bless America!

It is your patriotic duty to pass this on. If you don’t send this to at least 5 people, you’re a terrorist-sympathizing, lily-livered coward and are in the position of posing as a national threat.

Yeah, and I feel real special. You used me as an unpaid testing staff, and now I can pay you. I don’t think so. I’m not interested and why do I have to do anything?

“effective today”

Adding this to my not recommended!
