I just received a notice from a

MR. JAMIL A .A ALKHAI
DIRECTOR,INTERNATIONAL REMITTANCE
FOREIGN OPERATIONS DEPT,
INTERNATIONAL COMMERCIAL BANK LTD (ICB)
ACCRA, GHANA

apprising me of the fact that MR. LARRY JONES of GHANA has passed away and that he had named me as his next of kin and left me $65.5 million. I had completely forgotten about Uncle Larry. Now I feel awful...

"Enforcement and Compliance Interdiction Organization"...that sounds like the Nigerian group that threatened to arrest me, seize my property, rat me out to my Mayor and hide me in the hold of a China-bound freighter if I didn't send them $98 and sign The Certificate.

That wouldn't happen to be to the Chicagoland police, would it?

For your amusement...

These internet fraudsters are getting more brazen by the day. And more entertaining. This stuff can get so funny, that instead of just emptying my spam folder, I have actually been scanning through the trash to see if there is anything in there from my friends in Nigeria. Recently, they have been posing as Robert Mueller, Director of the FBI. What's really comical is that these morons don't know anyone in need of an extra $25 who would be willing to proofread and copy write this stuff to make it sound like it came from someone with, at least, a 6th grade Western education. Today's plea stretched all boundaries of the bold and ridiculous. Here's a summary, with the header, "FBI--WE HAVE AN ARREST WARRANT AGAINST YOU--ATTENTION BENEFICIARY":

-This Is the final warning you will receive from me.
-... if you fail to respond back to us with the payment details below, then we would first send a letter to the MAYOR of the city where you reside and also direct the bank to close your account until you comply with our directives.
-Note that all your properties will be confiscated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
-We would also send a letter to the company/organization you work for so that they could get you fired.
-Your ID which we have in our database has been sent to all the crimes agencies in America for them to upload you in their website as an internet fraudsters and a terrorist (suicide bomber).
-I will also warn people to stop having any dealing or friendly communication with you anymore. (<----Nooooooooo!)
-This would have been solved all this while if you have gotten the CERTIFICATE ENDORSED AND STAMPED.
-...you have been mandated to comply immediately you read this e-mail if you don't want to be arrested.
-***However, I have decided to see how i can be of help to you because i would not be happy to see you end up in jail and all your properties got confiscated...***

Now, this goes on for nine hefty paragraphs. Notice how it turns in the above sentence, beginning with "however". The hook is that if I get "the CERTIFICATE ENDORSED AND STAMPED" and pay the processing fee of $98, this all go away. If not..

"You will appear in ADMINISTRATIVE DISTRICT COURT OF WASHINGTON D.C for terrorism, money laundering and drug trafficking charges. Be warned; do not try anything funny because we are monitoring you from our satellite."

Signed, AKU DIMMA, LAGOS, NIGERIA, AMOUNT $98

But wait! There's more! Once the $98 has been processed, "...we will have to proceed to the bank for the transfer of your funds valued at $10,500,000.00 only which is supposed to have been transferred to your bank account."

But IF NOT..."...your failure to do that will attract a maximum arrest and finally you will be appearing in court for act of terrorism, money laundering and drug trafficking charges, so be warned not to try anything funny because you are been watched."

Do not try anything funny? Does this post count, Aku?

"Do not try anything funny?" Ahhhh hah hah hah!

What's next?

"Alright! Hands in the air! This is a stick up! Give me the funds for which you possess!"
"Sign the CERTIFICATE or I will report to your MAYOR that you killed my brother, you soiled rodent!"
“I don’t like violence, Mr. Ridge. I’m a businessman. Blood is a big expense. Sign the CERTIFICATE .”
"Once again, do not try anything funny, the Irish are not the only ones impervious to psychoanalysis."

Ari, Ari, Ari...what has become of you?

If the powerful RateItAll lobby can't influence the Deep Purple vote, then they don't stand a chance.

10 "Helpfuls", 10 "Funnies" and 5 inappropriate "D's" if anyone can answer this question about Windows 8: "Is there any way to use the touch pad to scroll down a long page, hands free, like I could do with the wheel on my mouse?"

If you go on ebay, I'm pretty sure you can find something to hook up your old Commodore as an external drive. I use my Grandma's old waffle maker.

So far, the most annoying thing about *8* is that every time I change pages on RIA, I get a warning about "security certificate errors" and it cuts off a valuable 1/2" of precious reading space. That could be the 1/2" that changes my life forever.

I learned a couple of things quickly. One is that with all of the things running at the same time, 4 gigs of RAM, which seems like a Veyron to me, won't be enough as time goes by. Second, is not to become a slave to all the apps. Probably won't even open 80% of them. They can be deleted, but I'll wait. I learned to easily toggle back and forth between the desktop and the apps, but with tabs in the desktop, what's the point? I think they just want to get me hooked on the apps so I'll visit their store for more. Who knows? Maybe if I get good with apps, I'll get more "Likes" on Facebook.

re: that 5 1/4" disc drive...are those the round ones or the square ones? :o
