Cybertips Newsletter – May 2005

Hello for May 2005. I hope you are appreciating the rain in Tulsa. At this rate, they may remove the burn band and we may be able to grill outside before the end of the year.

In case you think we are getting too much rain….

Lessons From The Story Of Noah’s Ark

* Plan ahead. It wasn’t raining when Noah built the ark.
* Stay fit. When you’re 600 years old, someone might ask you to do something really big.
* Don’t listen to critics. Do what has to be done.
* Build on the high ground.
* If you can’t fight or flee — float.
* Take care of your animals as if they were the last ones on Earth.
* Don’t forget we’re all in the same boat.
* When the doo-doo gets really deep, don’t sit there and complain — shovel.
* Remember that the ark was built by amateurs and the Titanic was built by professionals.

~~~~~ CYBER MAGIC TRICKS ~~~~~~~

TRICK #1 Get A New View With One Click.
This is another one of those “one trick ponies” that make life just a little bit better. Most all of us have muttered (some even cussed) when the words on our web browser are too small to read — at least without a lot of wrangling with our resolution settings.
This little Internet Explorer add-on allows you to magnify any HTML page as you browse the web. Once you apply this easy little assistant, a + and – sign will appear on your browser tool bar. Click either and –Shazam – the page immediately appears exactly the way you wish. And you can also print the enlarged or reduced version of the page in its new adjusted proportions.
This pony is quick, easy, handy — and best of all it’s on the house.

TRICK #2 A Personal Desktop Weather Station
This neat personal desktop weather station automatically retrieves your local weather. Now with one click you can bring yourself up to date on current conditions plus hourly, daily and detailed forecast plus severe weather alerts. You can also view weather maps for over 77,000 cities around the world.
There are lots of features allowing you to customize the weather reporting — or you can just add your city and leave the rest alone. Not only is this valuable program a freeware product, but unlike other earlier weather programs, it contains no form of bad stuff like spyware, viruses or Trojans.
Clear sailing!

GREAT PLACE  #1 What Is Bill Up To?
Ever wonder what’s going on up there at Microsoft. Sometimes it seems like these folks just sit around and think up new stuff (just like Google does :).This great place will give you a peek inside their brainstorming sessions as they roll out various betas you can try (at your peril).
