Filed under This~n~That

Every once in a while in life we are fortunate to encounter a really exceptional person,
who for whatever reason goes miles above what is normal..
Dave at Adobe expert help is such a man..
I called adobe about a problem, program conflict with the Photoshop CS 2 upgrade that I had purchased, it would open and freeze..making me more crazy than normal..if that’s possible..
For those of y’all that are Photoshop addicts.. err.. users you know how frustrating this was..
Dave spent somewhere in the neighborhood of 3 hrs on the phone, running tests, etc..
No way was this program going to install he offered to call and follow up the following day.. the amazing thing is ..HE DID! but nothing I tried
Yesterday I ran the dreaded oh my.. RESTORE program..
and tried again to install PSCS2
Yippee!!! It worked..
The wonderful part of this is that Dave.. my heartfelt gratitude.. to you,
followed up the initial troubleshooting call twice..
and will call again today to see that all is well..

Beware of Wolves in White…

Filed under News..

From CNN :money

Additionally, the AG’s office reported last week that two men posing as Salvation Army volunteers had been arrested for obtaining personal information from thousands of Louisiana police officers by convincing them that they were eligible for debit vouchers worth $5,000 each.

“We fear that the motivation was identity theft but we’re hoping that we stopped it in time,” Wartelle said, adding that the AG’s office is bracing itself for more complaints in the weeks ahead.

Part of the problem is the willingness among aid officials and citizens to accept that a person is a legitimate victim of the hurricane without proper proof, said Naomi Lefkovitz, staff attorney at the Federal Trade Commission.

“Agencies want to help people and get them on their feet as fast as possible,” she said. “There will undoubtedly be some (identity thieves) that fall through the cracks.”

She said the FTC is working with the Justice Department and U.S. Postal Service through a task force to identify and prosecute identity thieves.

But identity theft was a difficult problem to solve even before the chaos of the two storms. And now with thousands of citizens roaming the land without proper documentation and identification, the task is even more daunting.

Unsung Hero

Filed under This~n~That

After reading FEMA’S former directors statement today, blaming everyone and everything,
absolutely refusing to take any level of responsibilty…. this snippet of news, made me very sad..
In our country there are so few heros to look up to..
Police Chief Eddie Compass is one we can.
This man did everything he could to live within and abide by American laws and rights.
Police Chief.. for you in heaven is treasure stored up..
I am sure the city of New Orleans will miss you terribly

NEW ORLEANS - Police Superintendent Eddie Compass resigned Tuesday after four turbulent weeks in which the police force was wracked by desertions and disorganization in Hurricane Katrina’s aftermath.

“I served this department for 26 years and have taken it through some of the toughest times of its history. Every man in a leadership position must know when it’s time to hand over the reins,” Compass said at a news conference. “I’ll be going on in another direction that God has for me.”
