Disabled man told subsidized housing is for Muslims only

A young wheelchair user has been taken off the waiting list for a publicly subsidized apartment because he is not a member of the Muslim community that established the building — a practice that, while legal, raises concerns that accommodations for cultural and religious groups could be limiting access to affordable housing. According to a letter…

Fix without a password - C:\windows\system32\c_1252.nls is missing or corrupt

Horror of horrors! WinXp fails to open! Webfixes can be found but, what the heck is the administrator password? If I did write it down somewhere, back in 2009, it's long lost in a notebook or pile of papers. I took my time to repair my desktop, as I didn't want to lose any files or have to re-install mountains of updates.

1 I went to my xp latop, searched for, located and copied the same file onto a USB stick. Since this is a 'common error' when googled, I'll keep a copy of the relatively small file on that flashdrive just in case it happens again or to another xp machine.)

2 When my machine first failed it wouldn't enter 'safe mode,' but being patient, I found that after exploring then rejecting the 'Setup' repair option, I was able to get into 'safe mode.'

3 Now it's a cakewalk! Use Windows explorer to get into system32, rename the c_1252.nls to c_1252.old and then open the USB and drag the c_1252 file I'd copied from the laptop into system32 directory.

4 exit, re-start and VOILA!

Islamic State leader Baghdadi 'raped Kayla Mueller'(or not)

Kayla Mueller, 26, was repeatedly raped by Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, they say. But what's been added to the story, just doesn't add up. PBS and BBC fell for it. The New York Times reported it, but you can read 'we're not sure this is credible' between the lines. MORE...

Somewhere back in the 1960s.
The smell of incense and patchouli in the air.
Radio on.
WTRY playing the Bougalieu.
The newsrack inside Aunt Fanny's Garage

Turned to the page with the Top 30 songs being played on the west coast AM radio giant.
Hmmm... # 3 "Come Up The Years" by Jefferson Airplane.
Never heard of it.
Bought the LP later at Woolworth's on Central Avenue.

The Power of Social Media: You Can Thank One Direction For Burger King Bringing Chicken Fries Back!

The 1st King of Chicken!
Burger King rolled out fiery chicken fries nationwide on Tuesday, described as a "hotter version' of the regular chicken fries, which Burger King permanently reintroduced about five months ago after a hiatus of about three years.

Culinary fries' fans may have the boy band One Direction and the website Buzzfeed to thank for the return of the skinny fried sticks.

Replica Football Helmets

What a wonderful hobby it is to build a collection of football helmets if favorite National Football League teams include the Arizona Cardinals, the Atlanta Falcons, or the Baltimore Ravens. There are full-size and mini replica helmets representing those teams that are available from a collectibles supply company, and those authentic replicas can be prominently and happily displayed in a home or office.

A full size officially licensed authentic helmet, whether current or a throwback, with official NFL football team decals would be the ultimate collectible for a true fan and would make an excellent gift choice for a birthday or other special occasion. Perhaps the recipient would be able to get some appropriate autographs at some point. 

Some examples of what is available include: 

Arizona Cardinals NEW Riddell Full Size Revolution SPEED Helmet

This includes a polyvinyl-coated steel face mask, an extended chin strap for jaw area protection, a face mask attachment system, increased padding, elliptical air vents, and features team logo decals on both sides.

Arizona Cardinals Revolution SPEED Mini Helmet

The very affordable official NFL Mini Speed Football Helmet has team decals, a plastic shell and face mask, interior foam padding, and a chin strap in vinyl leather. This helmet is half the scale of a full size helmet. 

Atlanta Falcons 1966-69 Throwback Riddell Full Size Authentic Helmet

Full scale NFL Pro Line NFL football with official NFL team decals, a Polycarbonate shell, interior padding that snaps out, a two or four point chin strap, and a polyvinyl-coated steel running back/ quarterback style face mask.

Atlanta Falcons 1966-69 Riddell Mini Helmet

This is another half-scale version of the full-size helmet that is extremely affordable. There are official team decals, a plastic helmet shells and face mask, a vinyl-leather chin strap, and realistic interior foam padding.

Baltimore Ravens Super Bowl XLVII Champions Riddell Full Size Authentic SPEED Helmet

This full size officially licensed NFL helmet has team logo decals on both sides, an extended jaw area protection, a steel polyvinyl-coated face mask, elliptical air vents, increased padding and more authentic elements.

Stop Windows 10 From Stealing Your Bandwidth And Giving It To Others

Do you know that Windows 10 Uses Your Bandwidth to Send Updates to Other Users? A lot of my friends who have done the upgrade were shocked when their internet connectivity diminished under the new OS. As great as new PCs and laptops may be, I am hanging on for dear life to my WinXP machines. As I have mentioned in the past, I've tweaked my IBM ThinkPad to the point where it serves and services all of my needs, online and off. I stay away from the cloud as much as possible, and I have LAYERS of protection between my machine and the net. warns: Don’t Get Tricked Into Creating a Microsoft Account

"Windows 10 also prompts you by default to create a Microsoft account, but you should probably skip this if you are concerned about your private information. Not creating an account will keep your activity and information local to your computer, while having an account will create a link for Microsoft to piece all of the metadata it gathers back to your identity."

For those of you who need to upgrade,
