Election Insurance.

April Fools Day was a few days ago, and while you may have played a few pranks on people or even have had a few planks played on you, we always like the pranks that some companies come up with.

This year one of the best might be “Election Insurance” from the online insurer “esurance.”

Protect your home in case of a sudden move to another country with Election Insurance.

Well played. Well played indeed.

If Only…..

Web User is a real magazine published in the UK which focuses on computers and the internets. Their Facebook page can be found here.) We saw an ad for the magazine the other day and just had to laugh. (And then we made our own modification to it.)

The original is below the fold.

WebUser-Hillary-ROH

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. spy agencies have told Congress that Hillary Clinton’s home computer server contained some emails that should have been treated as “top secret” because their wording matched sections of some of the government’s most highly classified documents, four sources familiar with the agency reports said.

The two reports are the first formal declarations by U.S. spy agencies detailing how they believe Clinton violated government rules when highly classified information in at least 22 email messages passed through her unsecured home server.

Cable Guy.

SVGA-Cable-Bin-ROH One of the things that we received for Christmas is a 3 terabyte backup drive from one of the other contributors here at Raised on Hoecakes. We have had another computer sitting around which has better parts so we decided that we would move to the newer computer. (We are not looking forward to Windows 8 or Windows 10.)

In order to make the move, we are going to use multiple monitors – one with the “old” computer and one with the “new” computer. A friend was kind enough to let us borrow an older LCD monitor. What was missing is a power cord and a video cable for the monitor.

No problem.

Like many people, or rather it is better to say like many people who have built and keep computers around, we have box of cables and parts. Finding the power cord was not a problem as we have at least 15 of them. The video cable was more problematic. Most CRT monitors in the past had the the video cables attached to them and not as a separate cable. That being said, we were sure we had a cable in our cable box.

Alas that is not the case. We don’t have the more modern, separate cable for a LCD monitor.

Best comment from the Maximumble site:

I’m waiting for the day when kids will try to “swipe” a book to open it…

It just makes you want to shout at kids telling them to “stay off the grass!”

As an aside, while we were looking at other comics from the site, we came across this one:
