      Hi Pete,

      Here's something else for anybody who doesn't have an empty milk
      carton, go to <http://www.sciencetoymaker.org/boat/g_e_flogel.htm> to
      find out how to use one of your old wooden shoes instead. :-)

        Hi Frank,

        I came across the Shoe Boat. That guy has a mind like yours. If it looks like a boat and floats like a boat it must be a boat!

        Membership seems to have jumped in leap and bounds! Many of the new members are "senior" wanting to get reaquainted with their past or to aquaint the kids or grandkids with a real live steamboat. Good for you!. I hope that it makes you proud.

        That "Science Toymaakers Website and DUCKWORKS are both great resources. I've uploaded files and made links to both sites. I particularly like this wooden boat:

        http://www.duckworksmagazine.com/03/r/articles/steamer/index.htm

        It's an easy design that give some flexibility in shape etc. The heatshield is a nice touch. I've pasted into a WORD DOC and then converted to a PDF to download to the File Folder "Pop-Pop Plans".

        ENJOY,

        Pete

                  Dear Tech Support:

                   

                  Last year I upgraded from Girlfriend 7.0 to Wife 1.0. I soon noticed that the new program began unexpected child processing that took up a lot of space and valuable resources.

                  In addition, Wife 1.0 installed itself into all other programs and now monitors all other system activity. Applications such as Poker Night 10.3, Football 5.0 , Hunting and Fishing 7.5 , and Golfing 3.6.

                  I can't seem to keep Wife 1.0 in the background while attempting to run my favorite applications. I'm thinking about going back to Girlfriend 7.0 , but the uninstall doesn't work on Wife 1.0 . Please help!

                  Thanks,

                  Troubled User.....

                  Dear Troubled User:

                  This is a very common problem that men complain about.

                  Many people upgrade from Girlfriend 7.0 to Wife 1.0, thinking that it is just a Utilities and Entertainment program. Wife 1.0 is an OPERATING SYSTEM and is designed by its Creator to run EVERYTHING!!! It is also impossible to delete Wife 1.0 and to return to Girlfriend 7.0 . It is impossible to uninstall, or purge the program files from the system once installed.

                  You cannot go back to Girlfriend 7.0 because Wife 1.0 is designed to not allow this. Look in your Wife 1.0 manual under Warnings-Alimony/Child Support . I recommend that you keep Wife 1.0 and work on improving the situation. I suggest installing the background application "Yes Dear" to alleviate software augmentation.

                  The best course of action is to enter the command C:..APOLOGIZE! because ultimately you will have to give the APOLOGIZE command before the system will return to normal anyway.

                  enjoy,

                  Pete

                      Dear Tech Support:

                       

                      Last year I upgraded from Girlfriend 7.0 to Wife 1.0. I soon noticed that the new program began unexpected child processing that took up a lot of space and valuable resources.

                      In addition, Wife 1.0 installed itself into all other programs and now monitors all other system activity. Applications such as Poker Night 10.3, Football 5.0 , Hunting and Fishing 7.5 , and Golfing 3.6.

                      I can't seem to keep Wife 1.0 in the background while attempting to run my favorite applications. I'm thinking about going back to Girlfriend 7.0 , but the uninstall doesn't work on Wife 1.0 . Please help!

                      Thanks,

                      Troubled User.....

                      Dear Troubled User:

                      This is a very common problem that men complain about.

                      Many people upgrade from Girlfriend 7.0 to Wife 1.0, thinking that it is just a Utilities and Entertainment program. Wife 1.0 is an OPERATING SYSTEM and is designed by its Creator to run EVERYTHING!!! It is also impossible to delete Wife 1.0 and to return to Girlfriend 7.0 . It is impossible to uninstall, or purge the program files from the system once installed.

                      You cannot go back to Girlfriend 7.0 because Wife 1.0 is designed to not allow this. Look in your Wife 1.0 manual under Warnings-Alimony/Child Support . I recommend that you keep Wife 1.0 and work on improving the situation. I suggest installing the background application "Yes Dear" to alleviate software augmentation.

                      The best course of action is to enter the command C:..APOLOGIZE! because ultimately you will have to give the APOLOGIZE command before the system will return to normal anyway.

                      enjoy,

                      Pete
