Hello fellow Yahoo Answers addicts. I am a 58 year old mother and grandmother on disability retirement. Entered cyberspace world in October 2006 and quickly become addicted to it. Recently got upgraded from dial up to DSL which makes life in cyberspace so much better. Have to ground myself from the computer on occasion to catch up with my housework. I live in the backwoods of the Ozark Mountains and really enjoy the peace and quiet. I spent 20 years in California working as an RN and would still be working in the field if I were physically able to.

  • Has anyone noticed the Jessica bot that has hit YA?

    Noted several answers that were exactly the same with a link added and all posted by Jessica. Checked the profile-all the answers were posted at the exact same time. Didn't click on the link as it may be a virus. Jessica just joined today, answered 25 questions with the same answer, and will probably be back tomorrow for another 25.

  • Where would the descendants of those who were brought here as slaves be now if we had not has slaves ?

    Do not take this as a racist question. It is a thought I had after seeing the apology made by the state of Virginia. Think about it-if the ancestors of all the African Americans weren't brought here as slaves, where would all those American citizens be now? Would they be living in the African nation their ancestor came from? Many of those nations don't have the freedom that America has. This is not to justify the slave trade that went on in our past. It was a horrible part of our history. Just wondering what the situation of the current African American population that has had the benefits of living in a free society - education, the right to speak your mind, the right to vote, and the right to work in a career of your choosing - would be like if their ancestors had never been brought here as slaves. Please don't take this as approval of slavery-it isn't, it is just something to think about.

  • Can any of you help with a special project for yahoo answers?

    I am working on trying to reduce the number of unresolved questions. There are thousands of them that date back a year. You could do this in one of two ways. Either go to your Q&A and vote on a best answer for all of your own unresolved questions asked or go to vote and click on by date. The unresolved questions from 1 year ago will be listed -it is amazing how similar the questions and answers are to the ones being asked today. It doesn't take very long to go through a page of 20 questions and you will get a point for each vote you cast. Hope anyone who is at level 2 or above will work on this with me. Lets make it a community project to clean up this backlog. So who is with me on this?

  • Have you had problems with your Windows XP system since downloading IE7?

    I downloaded IE7 on my eMachines computer with Windows XP a week ago Sunday. By this past Sunday, I was having difficulty getting the explorer to connect to any site on the net. When I could get it to work I spent Sunday night through Tuesday night with eMachines tech support staff trying to fix it. In the process of repeated fix attempts, a required dll for the xp was deleted and today I had to completely restore my computer. The rest of the day I have been reinstalling the programs I lost-Yahoo Messenger, Mcafee security system, and anything else that wasn't included in the original xp programming. Don't download IE7 if you have Windows XP. Notice Yahoo still advertises it as the safest internet explorer. Don't believe it it will kill your computer.
