I received this today and if you can help please call Rita

Joe,

Could you send this out?

According to witnesses, a small blue SUV, possibly a Ford Escape, was traveling west on Pernod at a high rate of speed and hit my daughter’s parked car on Tuesday afternoon and fled the scene.  One witness tried to follow and get the plate but was unable to see it but believes it might be someone from the neighborhood. 

The SUV would have damage to the front passenger side, and possibly white paint from my daughter’s car. 

If anyone has information, please call Rita at 352-0143. 

Thanks!

What you should do if liquid spills into your laptop computer – There’s nothing better than coffee and computing in the morning (if you ask me). However I recently learned, “the hard way”, that coffee and computers do NOT directly mix well. I accidentally spilled my cup of coffee into the keyboard of my laptop computer. Water, coffee, tea, soda, and other liquids can be VERY DAMAGING to laptop computers.

Often people will have a drink next to their computer for ease of staying hydrated during a long computer session. While this is a convenient indulgence, it also is risky behavior. If you are like me, you are bound to bump the desk/table or drink container to the point of it spilling all over the place, and most likely into your laptop computer. Unless you have a tough-book or a waterproof computer this will cause serious damage. Read more about the steps you should take if you spill liquids into your computer.

Don’t Trust Emails from Unfamiliar Sources – When it comes to emails it’s good to take the same advice you dish to your kids, “Don’t talk to strangers.” If you get an email from someone or a company you don’t know and it has links or attachments, be wary and don’t download or click. Many times email scammers send email asking you to open an attachment to view the document, or to see the message. DON’T DO IT!!!

Sometimes you can get emails that look like they came from sources you trust, like the bank, Paypal, Ebay, or FedEx, Western Union, etc… They may contain attachments and wording urging you to download and open the attached file, or to click a link and put in your username and password. DON’T DO IT!!!

These files and websites will likely attempt to compromise your security and privacy. Below is an example of a phishing email one of our employees received:

Changing the Zoom in Microsoft WordOne frequent issue people ask about at the Lindenwood Park area computer repair shop is the default font in Microsoft Word. The way that microsoft word handles this is somewhat unusual, but before you delve deep into Word’s settings, there is one simple thing you should check: the zoom level.

I received a call about a found dog at the corner of Hampton and Pernod. I was told that the dog has no chip or ID. The person brought this dog to the humane society. If you know the owner of this dog please let them know where they can get him. He looks like a great dog and I am sure he wants to go home.

Missing backpacks

I received this e-mail today

 
my boys left their backpacks on top of the dumpster behind my house last night. Can you send an email to your group to see if anyone found them? Nothing with monetary value, just school stuff and a very important flash drive.

The boys are knocking at doors and checking dumpsters now.
Thanks,
