Usually there is a checkbox or something on the firewall where you can specify what you want to let in or through. I've never had a problem with printers or other peripherals. Often you can specify the sites that are 'user friendly' and also you can specify high medium or low. I tend not to use high as that turns things off when you sneeze!! Geez!!!! That could be part of the problem. What firewall are you using???

Don't tear the hair out. Not good for you

Sorry for the IT-related rant. I find the whole computer world very frustrating. Shad, thanks for the help - I did try to let the printer in, but to do so have to enter its "path", whatever that is. At least I didn't go out and buy a new printer which would probably have been just as disconnected! Until I get around to calling the tech I'll just turn off the firewall when I want to print something.
I think your bad eating is probably stress and fatigue-related. It always seems easier - and comforting - to shovel in something quick and full of fat, salt, and starch. Let me know if you want to give my fat flush a try - not much variety, but fairly easy and quick short-term results. It seems to help your taste buds forget the bad stuff.

Happy, if you're really having trouble getting up early enough, you're welcome to borrow my two furballs. They do rather a lot of yowling and vocalizing and bed/Carla jumping very early in the morning. Once they're sure I'm not going to manage any more sleep, they retire for a well-earned nap, congratulating themselves on a job well done...
By the way, can I have some of that soup too? Yummm!

Madcat, did your sister run the marathon while in New York? I've heard it's one of the best. I take it the whole weekend was a bit of a marathon for you... Get well soon!

Shy, what the heck is in those food porn balls? Looks like they're dipped in chocolate, but what flavour and consistency are the balls themselves?
As for weigh-ins, I really need to weigh in every day. In fact "forgetting" to weigh myself every morning is a sure sign that I'm trying to pretend I'm not overindulging...

So far the old fat flush is doing its magic, two pounds down so far. Of course I do know they'll be right back with several of their friends if I'm not careful. But it's gratifying to get a quick result. I don't know why it's so hard to eat properly - it would be different if I hated veg or couldn't live without heavy sauces. But I actually prefer large piles of steamed veg with lemon juice, and plain grilled meats or fish.

With all this food talk, now I'm getting hungry - time for bath and brekkie, or maybe a nice morning nap... Zzzzzzzz

Mel, for a quick fix try munching on a large bag of dried apricots. Certainly cleaned me out!!

Rennie, thanks for the recipe. I don't think I'll make them - I'd probably eat the whole batch at once and end up spending another night in the loo. Besides, while I do like PB, I'm not too sure it likes me.
As for the printer problem, for now I'll just disable the firewall to print, and I've sent an email to the anti-virus guys asking how to fix things. (Everything was fine until a recent automatic update from them... ) The printer manual is incomprehensible and totally not useful.

to Holly, Ruth, Meadow, Painter, Rose, 1dayatatime, Shad, and Happy.

You melt wax and chocolate together and then dip the peanut butter in them?

Gimme a Reese's Peanut butter cup (or 12) any old day

Mel - I think we should dress my cat up as a swashbuckler.

Happy, I notice you didn't take me up on my extremely generous offer of a couple of feline alarm clocks... I'd even let you dress them up all you want. But you can't have my Reese's PB cups. No sirree!!

Mel, if the dried apricots alone don't work, try adding a bag of Werther's Originals. It worked for me. And hey, a tray of porn - erm, buckeye balls might make a nice dessert after everything else!

I got a quick reply from the anti-virus folk, telling me to do what I'd already tried to no avail. Now they want me to sent them a copy of the screen with the error message, of which there isn't one... I foresee a long and frustrating correspondance before this one is fixed...

Day three of the fat flush, and I stupidly agreed to meet a skinny friend for lunch at a Mexican place... where I had an overpriced dish of lettuce with a teensy bit of chicken and green peppers and my own dressing from home. It cost me $15 with tip (and they were great big Canadian $$!!) and an hour later I'm starved. Went to Costco, and ate one sample - a piece of sliced turkey. Yes!!! I did it! I behaved! And tomorrow morning the scales had better show it too.

Time to go seek sustenance, forage for food, dig for dinner... Maybe a nice hard-boiled aigg since it's too early for supper.

I was going to ask about the parafin (sp) - does it make the treat move faster?? so to speak??? Thanks for the recipe, but I am not a PB fan either unless it is my mothers homemade stuff (and she is long gone) or in Satay sauce with chicken sticks.

Carla - certainly turning off the firewall is an option. But you should not have to do that. You are certainly not a dummy around computers so it is not for want of trying that you can't figure out the problem. The printer path is often available if you check out the printer settings in the Control Panel, however that is generally only useful for a network system. I'll give the fresh fruit and veges a couple of days to do their work and then maybe get onto your flat fush - um that didn't come out right, but you know what I mean.

Mel - take care that you don't overdo it. Time comes around when you will just fall into a slump and we know how bad that can be. Glad to here the right man got into the job. Rest up now you political animal you!!

Happy - those frozen veg sound good. We don't get Green Giant here, but no doubt there will be something similar. I might go for a look one day if I ever get out of here when the shops are open. Yep we have been doing a bit of food porn lately - but I'm having enough trouble doing a rant with the terrible twins here without having to look at you lot as well. Today I need to sooth a couple of bruised egos and wind them up at the same time to produce more than one thing a day. Good help is hard to find. They seem to think we are finished and ready - Bulldust is the answer to that one.

Running out of time again. So much to do, so little time. I need to do a rant at the Change Manager (who doesn't change by the way) because I have a bunch of would be trainers on my hands getting ready for mutiny because they have no idea where and when they are travelling to train. Can't say that I blame them unduly. Did I mention this project sucks??

Shad, does the printer path go by any other name? Cuz there isn't anything called 'path' under printer settings. I do have a network (I think) - wireless printing from my laptop. Maybe I'll google 'printer path' to see if I can find a synonym... if I could find the path I could enter it manually under allowed thingies on the antivirus site. Thanks for the long-distance help!
Enjoy the rant(s), and good luck whipping everyone into shape. (No, not us, those roosters and the 'change' manager. Love the title!)

I would not have thought that you had a printer path unless you have networked all your computers and are using one as the server. Then you would have a printer path (cos the printer would be set up at the server) something like WP-L04-02 on Perprn14. If you have simply put the printer onto the computer with a driver or it's plug and play, the name of the computer should be sufficient.

Anyway I should go do some work. I'll mull over the problem while I chew out some of the programmers

Hello chicks, no time to post today. Just a quick

Sorry your project sucks the big one Shad. How much longer on this one? Of course it seems like a long time since "gee I can't WAIT to get into work".

Carla - thanks for the cat offer but I've got one of my own and 2 neighborhood cats we support too.

Can't help you on the printer stuff - that's why I have a husband and we each have our place

Gotta run. Catch up tonight...

Morning all,
And a very early morning it is too. Aaahh well, I can go about my evil deeds without harrassment for the moment. Yesterday I finally managed to send the Fijian into panic mode. Then I told him that I was loaning him to finance next week to put data in for them since he was so good at mine. He's doing double time now I can tell you. My Malayasian chick wasn't so easy to whip and soothe. She is a details person and can't stand full stops or commas in the wrong place. I think we have come to a place where we will be able to co-operate. Then I had to gently let my business process person know that I won't tolerate her yelling at my troops. That should she have a problem, come to me and we will sort it together without the language. Shheeeezzzzz and my mother said I would never make a diplomat. I just wanted to knock their bloody heads together.
I've had a week of wins so far. I have forced a decision out of the business regarding the course that has been postponed (no.1 win that) and yesterday managed to get a draft schedule out of the people who are scheduling classes - yippee so now I can say the mutiny is all but over. It's been a stressful week but..... At least I can look back with a form of satisfaction and say that we have achieved something. And it is Friday.

Rennie - I've decided why the Buckeye food porn balls must be good for you. The chocolate disguises the peanut butter and the parrafin makes all things come to pass (so to speak). Maybe we better get off the subject of balls because it does peculiar things to MEL.
I had to laugh when you talked about using Jiff to make the balls because over here, Jiff is a bath cleaner. Comes in powder or liquid paste forms. Which would you use in your Buckeye???

Carla - hope you can get some decent info out of the tech department for your firewall/printer problem. I did ask a couple of IT people here and they looked at me with blank faces. Why am I not surprised - I used more than 2 syllables per word I guess. I'll try the home grown variety when I email him today.

Happy - Carla's cats are really, really good at the waking alarm bit. Really it should read waking in an alarmed state with those two. My bladder has yet to recover. Just joking Carla. But you gotta admit his aim is good. I'll send over Sunday too if required. She just paws at the face (claws out if you don't respond quickly) and ears to let you know that she requires something. She's also not averse to sitting on your head either.

Melly - my buddy, howse youse doin' as they say over here in the west. I knew the talk of balls would get you going. Love to Jen and Rich. Hope you are all getting better by the day.

Okay - with that it is almost time for breakfast and I can sit there and dream up some horrors for the troops while supping on coffee and orange juice and eating my hollandaise eggs - don't call them benedict over here. Back later.

Yup, I suppose it's time to start thinking Christmas goodies. I make a Velveeta fudge, spiced mixed nuts and white chocolate cranberry crunch that seems to be a must for my friends. Some of them are hinting already when I mentioned going to the Bulk Barn.

Chickies, I'm really dragging my butt these days and am darn sure it's all the pain killers I've been doing. My poor liver probably is overworked. I may have to cut the acetaminophen and switch to Scotch. The morning trip to the gym is just not happening - not sure how to get my groove back.

There's been lots of SPAM and trolls online lately so I've been managing to keep busy. People have too much time on their hands, I'm afraid.

Send me some cats - my mouse traps are not being efficient these days and I hate dealing with the undead - especially in rodents!

Need to feed my darling Hershey, The Velcro Dog. I think she wants to be sure she has a warm place for the winter because she sure is sucky.

Ruth, you want cats??? Do I have a couple of cats for you... Besides their miracle alarm clock imitations, they have......


....very few redeeming qualities. But Z would be company for Hershey, as he gets along fine with nice dogs.

As for your pain management, are you going to have your surgery up here in O. or somewhere else? It seems to me I read one of the hospitals was planning to implement a new program to zip thru the hip/knee waiting list. Might be worth checking into. (If I've misunderstood the problem, sorry - old age creeping up and all.)

What the heck is Velveeta fudge? Not an appetizing mental image...
