Would someone please post a recipe for making twinkies.
It cant be all that difficult to mix up a bunch of sugar and a few other
I'm sure sick of seeing these twinkie threads. Maybe the recipe will
give these sugar addicted people something to do besides whine about
Hostess being shut down.
Google might not be your friend (more like someone you know from work,
the neighbor down the street) but I'll tell you who's your friend -
Your HOSTS file is your *real* friend:
Put those in your HOSTS file and then you don't have to worry about
being pushed, filed, stamped, indexed, briefed, debriefed or numbered by
google. Your life will be your own.
Okay, I'm stupid. I kept getting nagged that my browser was soon to quit
functioning, I guess I had an old program or whatever. Anyway, I downloaded
Google Chrome, as recommended. Well, I still get nagged, I guess it didn't
totally install. I have an icon on my desktop, and I get new looking
windows on things. But it still says that there is some impending doom due
to me using an old antiquated program.
But I HATE how it takes me to BING, which I hate also, because you have to
sift through pastures of crap to find the pony. They also take a while to
download sometimes, and I see in the lower left ........ 27 pictures to
download, 26,25 ................. I want to read the damn story,
fergeddabout the pictures. Criminently!
So, I think I should not have taken Google Chrome. Now, I want to uninstall
it, but I fear I may not get all the remnants out, something that Google is
good at, leaving crap that is hard to take out.
I have heard about Firefox, but until now, my computer does what I want it
to do, and I guess I don't understand enough about it to be irritated at
what it's doing, nor know how a good working system acts.
So ........ should I uninstall Google Chrome? Will it totally uninstall?
Should I get Firefox? Is it possible for a rank amateur to configure?
And what's with the list of hosts? What will they do for me, and where do I
put them on my computer, and how do I make them work?
In short, what do I need to do to bring my computer up to snuff, and enjoy
some of the things that I guess I just don't know about now......
I use Thunderbird for a newsreader, it's also an Email client. Look up
Firefox and Thunderbird and you'll find a lot of online help and support
of these open source applications. I use a variant of Firefox called
Pale Moon along with a half dozen other browsers including IE. ^_^
Yup. I need my computer. I don't need to understand how it works. I use
for real estate information in my work. It worked until my system started
gyrating around a few days ago. Now, a white screen comes up with the
notation "Done" in the lower left when I click it on. Something went
kaflooey. Guess I need to take it down to my local geek and have him reset
it. I did a restore, but couldn't get it to work. It is allowed in my pop
up blocker. I just need it to work, and if it will work better with Firefox
than IE, I'll take that. It was all working fine before.
You can install and run as many browsers as you want. I have 5 of them
installed. I even use two of them at once sometimes. Firefox is one of
the best, however I'm still using one of their older ones. I have an
older Operating system, and from what I hear the newer ones are bloated.
I hate bloatware.
I have not tried Chrome, and dont want to.
Ignore the sites that say your browser is outdated. It's just that
site. Fuck em'. Let me guess, it's Youtube???? Youtube dont like one
of my browsers either. Like I give a shit. These big websites are
programmed to make people keep upgrading and spending money on newer
computers and all that crap. I refuse to play their game. If they dont
like my browser, I dont need their website.
If you keep getting Bing, go to the settings and change the default
website. Make it set to NONE, and you'll get a blank screen when the
browser starts. You might also want to check for spyware. Get Spybot,
it's free (or used to be, since I have not downloaded it lately).

Instead of "Chrome" which is full of spies, try "SRWare Iron" which is
based on Chrome but with all the spy-apps ripped out. I'm also playing
with "Yandex" another Chrome based browser out of Russia. ^_^
Actually, the recipe of Twinkies contains secret ingredients that are
programmed to make you behave in particular ways when it comes to posting on
and surfing on the Internet. Try this: Eat two Twinkies and see how much
time, and how much you buy in the next 24 hours.
