Conficker Eye Chart

April 30, 2009

I just heard about something on the news that I think might be useful, so I thought I’d pass it on.  There is a conficker eye chart that can help you test if your computer is infected with conficker.  There are several other sites that have the chart (which can easily found by doing a quick google (or other) search).  There is even an explanation of how it works that points out that it’s important to scroll down to see how to interpret what you see (or don’t see as the case may be).

National Honesty Day, etc.

April 30, 2009

Be honest today;
Tell the truth to all you see:
This should be the norm.


It’s Hairstyle Appreciation Day and National Honesty Day.

Greenery Day, etc.

April 29, 2009

Plant a tree or bush,
Ferns and flowers, or clover,
Or anything green.


It’s Greenery DayNational Shrimp Scampi Day, and Lawn and Garden Month.

Great Poetry Reading Day, etc.

April 28, 2009

Read great poetry,
Be it Shakespeare or others;
Ain’t gonna be here.


It’s Great Poetry Reading Day, Kiss Your Mate Day, and Poetry Month.  Thinking about other not-so-great poetry brings to mind the limerick openings:  ‘there was an old man from Nantucket …’ and ‘there once was a man from Venus / his body was shaped like …’.  The fun thing about these is coming up with endings that aren’t the obvious ones.

National Prime Rib Day, etc.

April 27, 2009

Chow down on prime rib;
Get your fingers all greasy,
And your face as well.


It’s Babe Ruth Day, National Prime Rib Day, Tell a Story Day, and National Karaoke Week (week 4).

National Pretzel Day, etc.

April 26, 2009

Delicious pretzels;
Salty, crunchy, and twisted;
Great with chocolate.


It’s Executive Admin’s Day (Secretary’s Day), Hug an Australian DayNational Pretzel DayRichter Scale Day, and Administrative Assistants Week (week 4).

World Penguin Day, etc.

April 25, 2009

Two penguins talking;
“Looks like you’re wearing a tux.”
“Who says that I’m not?”*


It’s East meets West Day and World Penguin Day.
