D110a & Your Mac

For my friend Margaret:

1 - Download the latest HP Driver for you printer here >>>

2 - Run the installer & follow the prompts

That should get your printer online (wired, at least). The wireless feature may be very simple. It's usually a part of the Setup Wizard.

Flip4Mac and friends

Just a hint for those needing to play different video/audio formats on your Mac:

WMV & WMA components for Quicktime

Swiss army knife for most of the rest

VLC - Great player for any type of media file

Cooking Tip of the Day

Divorced and Homeless Ramen


Maruchan Chili-flavor (Spicy) Ramen (2 packets, because you’re hungry, very very hungry)
Creamy Peanut Butter (two big tablespoons worth)

Pour in some water (it doesn’t matter how much) into whatever size bowl you have is about 3/4 of the way full. Microwave this water until hot. It doesn’t have to boil necessarily, if you can’t wait long; just at least pretty hot. Take bowl out of microwave, place beside kitchen sink. Plop ramen into hot water bowl. Give it about 3 minutes.

Then, using your college degree for once in the “real world”, tip the bowl over the kitchen sink, just so, to drain off excess water while achieving a 90%+ ramen retention level. Drain until water level is at least less than half the height of the ramen. Drain more if you like the finish product more pasty than soupy.

At this moment, bust open the two hot chili-flavor packets onto the ramen. Then, using the fork, dig out a big wad of peanut butter (about two tablespoons but why measure) and use fork to stir peanut butter, chili-flavored-salt, remaining hot water, and ramen all together. Very soon the water/seasoning/peanut butter will have merged into a tasty, nutritious sauce, that’s darn good with those ramen noodles. Guaranteed to cheer you up for 10 minutes.

Apple's Policy on Malware

It's a fake virus app. Less than savvy users can be misled into thinking they have a virus on their Mac.

Apple's solution?

Don't help 'em.

The End Of The World!!!

Isn't coming. Again.

Failed predictions are a safe bet.

Here's five that didn't really come true.

Our local cops don't seem to know much about cocaine. Or flour.
