Hifree money


I thought you might be interested in making some extra free money alongside of what you are
already doing. After all, we could all use some extra income, no matter what we do! How does $20,000 in two weeks
sound? It IS possible...

WHAT IF I share with you a way to make some fast and easy cash, using a copy of this letter and the simplest Internet
Payment System around?

You have most likely seen or heard about "The Letter"; a $5.00 program that was recently televised on 20/20,
OPRAH WINFREY, and an article published in the Wall Street Journal on 6/16/2001. If not, here it is!!

Please read all of this, right to the very last sentence. If you don't have time now, then SAVE THIS LETTER, and read
it later. Everyone has heard about "PayPal" (if you haven't you will soon) and, when I came across this concept I knew
it would work because, as a member of Pay Pal, I had already experienced their efficiency and excellent standing.
PayPal is the simplest method of making and receiving payments online anyone has ever seen! Anyone with an email
address can join, for FREE! Please read further before you go there...

You can complete this whole process in less than one hour and you will never forget the day you decided to do so! Did
I say FAST? By fast I mean 'the speed of the Internet-type fast.' Everything is done on the Internet by E-mail, and, if
you abide by the rules, it is NOT considered SPAM, so it's perfectly legal! NEED PROOF? Here are just two
testimonials from individuals who decided to invest nothing more than a little of their time.

Tony Stevens, Vandenberg AFB, CA:
Hey! I got your e-mail! YOU ROCK! I sent it to all of our frat brothers.....and while I haven't seen my $20 grand yet, I'm
up to $8,285. Hook me up when you run this program again.

Mary Gathers, Columbia, SC:
Hey cuz! This is Mary. I only have one thing to say to you... OH MY GOD! I sent 20 e-mails out like you said and went
on vacation. When I got back, my account was up to over $12,000! I owe you!

If those testimonials don’t convince you… consider this:
You place your email address on the bottom of the list of five people. If you send out a mere 20 copies of this letter to
friends or acquaintances (and that’s a small number to start with, I sent out 100 copies to further guarantee a
successful return) and only 50% of those people respond; that is 10 people. Ten people who send out 20 replies
means that a potential of 200 people will now have the letter in their inbox with your PayPal email address in the #5 slot
on the list.
Lets say that only 10 of those people send out 20 copies (again…a small number) and only 50% of them respond, that’s
still 100 people that have forwarded this letter with your email address on it. If those 100 people send out 20 copies of
this letter, that’s a potential of 2000 people that have received a copy of this letter with your email address in the #2
position on the list.

Let’s say those 10 people send out another 20 copies and only get a 50% return in replies. That’s a total of 1000
people that have received a copy of the letter with your name in the #1 position on the list and who will be sending you
$5.00 each.
That’s a total income of $5,000.00 for a ½ hour of work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you were to take a larger scenario, such as my example of sending out 100 replies. Using the same percentage of
returns (50%), you would make a staggering $62,500.00.
If it took you 2 hours: THAT’S $31,250.00 AN HOUR!!!!!!!!!!!!
Tell me where else you can make that kind of money! Not even Hugh Hefner or Derek Jeter make THAT much!


If you're not already a user, the very first thing you need to do is go to PayPal and SIGN UP. It takes two minutes and
PayPal will deposit $5.00 in your account once you start using it. That makes this program FREE!


Then send five $1.00 payment from your PayPal account ($5.00 you can earn back from Paypal, which makes this
program FREE!) to the email addresses in this letter along with a note saying "Please add me to your
mailing list."

BE PREPARED TO GET EXCITED.... YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED! Don't laugh! Try this while you wait for the
others to start working. One half hour of work to get started - no mailing lists. No printing, copying or waiting and the
concept is 100% legal (refer to US Lottery Laws, Title 18, Section 1302 and 1341, or Title 18, Section 3005 in the US
code, also in the code of Federal Regulations, Volume 16, Sections 255 and 436, which state a product or service
must be exchanged for money received).

This version has nothing to do with Postal Laws, as it' EMAIL ONLY.
Here's How It Works. Unlike many other PayPal programs, this FIVE LEVEL PROGRAM costs only $5, that's right,
only $5 ONCE, which is much more realistic and brings much, much faster results. No cheating can occur (Don't be
fooled by other PayPal letters that mention cheaters) as Paypal only allows one Account per person.

Because it is so easy, the response rate is VERY HIGH, VERY FAST-Internet E-mail FAST-and you will start seeing
results in less than one week! JUST IN TIME FOR NEXT MONTHS BILLS! You need only mail out 20 copies, to start
with. Start right away, as soon as you pay the email
addresses below! Send to personal contacts, reply to people who send their programs to you as they are already working
on the web, and they know these programs work. They are already believers in the system!

Once you have paid the money to the five email positions, please send an email to the No.5 position with
"THANKS I'VE JOINED" in the subject (topic) area, and I'll send you a copy of the "Follow Up Letter" that is FULL of
TIPS and HINTS on where to obtain THOUSANDS of spam free email addresses to send to, where to find free web
based email accounts to send your emails from, instructions on how NOT to lose a web based email account, and
much, much MORE. This program is MUCH, MUCH FASTER and has a HIGHER RESPONSE RATE than any other
program! Even if you are already in another program, stay with it, but do yourself a favor and DO THIS ONE as well.
START RIGHT NOW! It's simple and will only cost $5.00 max. It will pay off long before others even begin to receive
letters! Just give these five people a $1.00 gift (REMEMBER THOUGH, this $5.00 is the $5.00 YOU GET BACK WHEN
YOU START USING YOUR new PayPal account).

That's all! If you already have a PayPal account, please still donate these five people a $1.00 GIFT to the persons on the list and
add your name on the list at No.5 position having moved up the remaining four. Follow the simple instructions and in
two weeks you will have approximately $20,000 in your PayPal account!

VERY HIGH RESPONSE RATE! All from just five $1.00 transaction that you can get back from PayPal!
Follow These Simple Instructions:

1: Open your free Paypal account, and be sure to open a Premiere Account, as it does not limit
you to how much money you can have deposited to your account. Then come back to these

2: E-mail the $1.00 payment to the people on the list along with a "note" in the NOTE AREA of that page,
saying "SUBSCRIBE ME TO YOUR MAILING LIST". Be certain to add this note, as this is what KEEPS THIS
LETTER LEGAL. Instructions on how to send a payment are under "SEND MONEY" at the Paypal site. It's so easy!

3: Edit the list, REMOVING the FIRST EMAIL ADDRESS FROM THE LIST after you have made the payment.
Then, move the other four email addresses UP and ADD YOUR PAYPAL EMAIL ADDRESS in the #5 position. Don't
try to add your name in the first place in order to earn money fast! If you do that, you will ONLY reach people you send
e-mail to then your name will be immediately removed from the No.1 place and you won't reach thousands of people!
But if you add your name on the No.5 place, there will be millions of people receiving and sending e-mails later, when
your name is No.1!

4: Send out 20 copies (minimum) of this letter, but only to people you know, or respond to MLM offers. Once you've
paid the person on the list, be sure to email the person in the #5 position, with "Thanks, I've Joined" as a topic
in the reply. You will then receive a follow up letter that is full of SPAM free hints and tips to insure your success in this
version of the PayPal letter.

ALSO NOTE: By sending this letter and the payment via E-MAIL, the response time is much faster... ELECTRONIC
Consider this! Millions of people surf the Internet everyday, all day, all over the world! Here are the 5 people to start
with. Sign up, send $1.00 to the five persons, move the other four up respectively and add your own e-mail
address at No. 5. Be sure to use your email address that is associated with your PayPal account.


# 1 -
# 2 -
# 3 -
# 4 -
# 5 :

There are fifty thousand new people who get on the Internet every month! An excellent source of email addresses is
the people who send you offers by email. The source is UNLIMITED! It boggles my mind to think of all the possibilities!
Mail, or should I say 'E-mail', your letter and payment TODAY! It's so easy. One hour of your time, THAT'S IT! To send
your letter by e-mail, copy this ENTIRE PAGE and paste it in a new message of your E-mail.

1. Go in your toolbar to "edit" and "select all"
2. Go in your toolbar to "edit" and select "copy"
3. Start (compose) a new E-mail message
4. Fill in your Address and Subject Box
5. Go to "edit" and "paste"
6. Delete the top name, adding your name and address to the bottom of the list, then simply
changing the numbers. Remember, YOUR NAME goes on the BOTTOM and the other four names move up. But DO
NOT forget to send $5.00 in total via PayPal (along with your note)!

When your name reaches the first position in a few days, it will be your turn to collect your MONEY! The money will be
sent to you by 2,000 to 4,000 people like yourself, who are willing to invest one half hour to receive $20,000 in cash!
That's all! There should be a total of $20,000 in $5.00 bills in your mailbox (account) in two weeks. $20,000 for one
hour's work! This is real money that you can spend on anything you wish! Just deposit it to your own bank account or
spend it directly from your PayPal account! It's just that easy!!! I think it's WORTH IT, don't you?

This is a "ONE TIME" mailing sent to those interested in Home and Business Opportunities, and to friends. Your
address is not added to any other lists, so this is NOT considered spam.

Thank you and good luck in your ventures.

I left this for my 9 year bro to get him to believe again. maby someone can use it...

Dear Matlock Family:
Hi, This letter is for the whole matlock family, but mostly Joshua. I have been informed from some of my elves that you don’t believe in me. You believe in Saint Nick. Well, I just wanted to tell you that we, me and Saint Nick are the same people.
I also wanted to tell you and your whole family how good of a job you guys have done, from moving out of that cool house you had in Scio to the hotels, to the apartment and now here in Jefferson. I know, it can be hard. Well, What ever.
So, Josh, I hope that you will like all the Christmas presents that I got you, and I hope I remembered everything. If I did not, have mike e-mail me and I’ll remember to get them next year.
Thanks a whole lot again for being one of the best kids I have worked with, all though, you could use some work with that attitude.


MR. Santa Claus
Of The North Pole
PS: I used mikes computer because Mrs. Claus took all my pins because she thought one of them would poke me in the side if the rain deer tripped or something. I think it is stupid, but mike left his computer on, so I used it.
PPS: What happened. I thought you were going to leave me cookies and milk; I looked around and didn’t find any.

Guide Dogs' Night Before Christmas.

Guide Dogs' Night Before Christmas.

'Twas the night before Christmas and the kennels were still, with most dogs
now asleep having eaten their fill. The Labradors sprawled out, quite snug
in their beds, while visions of ANYTHING edible danced in their heads. sthe
Goldens and Shepherds curled up on the floor, some twitched in their sleep
and some even did snore. The dog food was stacked in the feed room with
care, in hopes that a trainer soon would be there. On the window ledge, one
the kennel cats lay, surveying the lawn at the end of this day. Something
was different, that little cat knew. Tonight something would happen, it had
be true. For that day as the workers had left to go home, They'd wished
Merry Christmas! before starting to roam. The dogs had noticed it to during
past week's walks, the trainers seemed just that much happier and eager to
talk. In the mall where they worked through the maze of people and stores,
were decoration and music and distractions galore! Most dogs pranced along
without worry or fear, but some balked at the man on the sleigh and those
looking > deer. The cat was almost asleep too when he first heard the sound,
a whoosh through the air and a jingle around. It reminded him of a dog's
when the animal shook, but this sound kept on growing. He'd better go look.
From the ceiling there came a faint sort of thunk, as the kennel cat climbed
to the highest pile of junk. Once before people had worked on the roof, and
come down through the trap door to a chorus of "Woooof!" But the dogs still
were quiet, all sleeping so sound, as this man dressed in red made his way
right on down. He patted the cat as he climbed past his spot, then made his
way right to the trainers' coffee pot. A shepherd sat up, not fully awake,
then a Golden followed her with a mighty loud shake. That did it! All the
sprang to life with loud noise. In spite of the din, the old man kept his
poise. He filled the pot full and it started to brew, then he pulled up a
and took in the view. Dogs all around him, so carefully bred, he knew well
their jobs, the blind people they led. Some had stopped barking and looked
him now, while others delighted in their own deafening howl. Laying a finger
in front of his lips, the jolly old man silenced the excitable yips. "You
all may not know me, but I'm Santa Claus," the old man smiled and took a
short pause, While he filled up his mug with hot liquid and cream, "I've
wanted to stop here. It's been one of my dreams." The cat had climbed down
and was exploring Santa's sack. "Yes, little kitty, that's an empty pack."
smiled as he drank and looked at those eyes, deep brown ones and gold ones
held wide in surprise. Some of these dogs, he'd seen just last year, in
puppy homes, cute and full of holiday cheer. He'd seen the effects of a pup
on the tree, but now they were here at the school, just waiting to be. "I
bring you presents or bones just to chew. I'll tell you something better,
what you are going to do." "You all will work hard and the trainers will
both praise and correction, gentle and fair." "You'll go lots of places and
face big scary things. You'll ride buses and subways and hear fire sirens
"Cars will drive at you but you will stand strong, not moving into danger,
not moving toward wrong." "And then just when you think that this trainer's
the best, the kindest, and funnest person, toss away all the rest," "That
trainer will begin to ignore you and give you away, handing your leash over
your dismay." "Now the person who pets you and feeds you will be a blind
person. That's a person who can't see." " This man or this woman may see
a tad, but their view's missing parts or the focus is bad." "So you, well
trained dogs, will act as their eyes. You will work as a team and discover
size" "Of this great world we live in, because you will go a million new
places with this person, you know." Santa sipped at his coffee and looked
the brood, knowing what he had to say next might sound kind of rude. "Not
all of you will make it and become canine guides. Your time here isn't
though. You won't be cast aside." "Some of you will be drug dogs and some
will find bombs. Some will become pets in a home with a dad and a mom." "All
these things are important. People wait on long lists, to receive such good
dogs as you, the school folks insist." The last drop of coffee had gone into
his cup as Santa turned, smiling at each wide eyed pup. "The best gift of
all is to give something back. That's why there's nothing for you all inside
of my pack." Draining his mug, Santa went to each pen, and petted and
scratched each dog again and again. "Now next year and many more years after
you all will give gifts wherever you're at." "You might lick a hand that's
had a bad day, Or notice a car and step out of the way." "You might help
a crook or discover some loot, Or just bring some joy to a tired old man in
a funny red suit." "Your master will love you and treat you with care. In
your training and trust will always be there." After the last dog had been
petted and soothed, Santa put away the coffee pot and made ready to move. Up
the ladder he rose to the door high above, with a smile and a wave as he
slipped on his gloves. And all the dog ears were pricked as he disappeared
of sight. "Merry Christmas to all, and to all a Good Night!" (Author

Microsoft auctions beta invites for Live IM client

Microsoft auctions beta invites for Live IM client

Elizabeth Montalbano, IDG News Service

22/12/2005 07:38:09

Still wondering what to get that Microsoft enthusiast for the holidays? Microsoft's Windows Live team has an idea -- an invitation to a limited beta of
Microsoft's next-generation instant-message (IM) client, Windows Live Messenger.

Microsoft is auctioning off invitations to the private beta release of the forthcoming client on eBay's auction site, according to a posting on the Windows
Live team's blog.

"Xbox 360 is not the only thing in short supply this holiday season," according to a posting on the
Windows Live blog. "
So like Xbox, Windows Live Messenger beta invites are appearing on eBay."

The auctions can be found here:

While many of the other Windows Live services and Web-based applications, such as Windows Live Local and Windows Live Mail, are available in public betas,
Windows Live Messenger is by invitation only.

Windows Live Messenger, part of Microsoft's Live Software plan to offer a set of Web-based services and applications, will eventually replace the current
Microsoft IM client, MSN Messenger. The next version of MSN Messenger will be rebranded Windows Live Messenger 8.0. Windows Live Mail also is expected
to take the place of MSN Hotmail in the future.

The eBay auction sites for the beta invitations provide a screen shot of the upcoming IM client, which promises to allow users to more quickly and easily
share files such as photos and music, as well as make PC-to-PC voice calls with other Windows Live Messenger users, according to Microsoft. The client
also will have a new user interface and allow users to message buddies even when they are offline.

At the time this article was written, the highest price for one of the Windows Live Messenger invitations was US$20. The Windows Live team has started a
pool to guess what the highest selling price will be for one of the invitations, according to the team's blog.

The Night Before Christmas

I red this and almost cryed.
Marry Christmas everyone.
I love you Jessica.

The Night Before Christmas
Twas the night before Christmas, he lived aloneIn a one bedroom house made of plaster and stone.
I had come down the chimney with presents to give,And to see just who in this house did live.
I looked all about, a strange sight did I see,No tinsel, no presents, not even a tree.
No stockings by the mantle, just boots filled with sand,On the wall hung pictures of far distant lands.
With medals and badges, awards of all kinds,A sober thought came through my mind.
For this house was different, it was dark and dreary.I found the home of a soldier, one I could see clearly.
The soldier lay sleeping, silent, alone,Curled up on the floor of this one bedroom home.
The face was so gentle, the room in such disorder,Not how I pictured a United States Soldier.
Was this the hero of whom I'd just read?Curled up on a poncho, the floor for a bed?
I realized the families that I saw this nightOwed their lives to these soldiers who were willing to fight.
Soon round the world, the children would play,And grownups would celebrate a bright Christmas Day.
They all enjoyed freedom each month of the year,Because of the soldiers, like the one lying here.
I couldn't help but wonder how many lay alone,On a cold Christmas Eve, in a land far from home.
The very thought brought a tear to my eye,I dropped to my knees and started to cry.
The soldier awakened and I heard a rough voice,"Santa don't cry, this life is my choice;
I fight for freedom, I don't ask for more,My life is my God, my country, my Corps."
The soldier rolled over and drifted to sleep,I couldn't control it, I continued to weep.
I kept watch for hours, so silent and still,And we both shivered from the cold night's chill.
I didn't want to leave on that cold dark night,This guardian of honor so willing to fight.
Then the soldier rolled over, with a voice soft and pure,whispered, "Carry on Santa, it's Christmas Day, all is secure."
One look at my watch and I knew he was right,Merry Christmas my friend, and to all a good night.

NEC announces Yonah laptop plans

NEC announces Yonah laptop plans

Gods, This means a hell a lot for us comp users. I think I might fork up enough cash for it.
Martyn Williams, IDG News Service

21/12/2005 08:01:37

NEC disclosed plans on Monday for its first laptop computer based on Intel's Yonah dual-core mobile processor.

Yonah is the code-name for the dual-core version of Intel's Pentium M processor for laptops and small desktops. The chip is scheduled for release in the
first quarter of 2006 and is expected to be one of Intel's main new products for next year.

The Lavie RX LR900 laptop was announced with NEC's new year PC line-up, which was announced the same day. The company disclosed full technical details for
the computer with the exception of the processor and chipset, which it listed as Yonah and Mobile Intel 945 Express family, respectively.

NEC said the LR900 will be based on Windows XP Home Edition, come with 512M bytes of main memory and a 100G-byte hard-disk drive. It will have a 14.1-inch
LCD (liquid crystal display), DVD Super Multi drive (DVD-R/+R, DVD-RAM, DVD-RW/+RW), 802.11a/b/g Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. The machine will weigh about 2kgs
and the battery will provide enough power to last about 4 hours.

NEC intends to put the machine on sale sometime in 2006 for around YEN 225,000 (US$1,945) in its basic configuration, said Susumu Sakamoto, a spokesman
for NEC in Tokyo.

That the company is working on a Yonah-based laptop is no surprise. NEC is one of Intel's biggest customers in Japan and the nation's leading PC maker.
It enjoyed a 20 percent market share in the first half of 2005, according to an estimate released Tuesday by IDC Japan.

Fujitsu Ltd. was ranked the number two PC vendor with a 18 percent share ahead of Dell, 12 percent; Toshiba, 9 percent; and Hewlett-Packard, 6 percent,
according to the IDC figures.

Ayashi no ceres

Ayashi no ceres is the story of Aya Mikage and her twin brother Aki, driven apart by the forces of fate. On their sixteenth birthday, Aya and Aki are called
to the family home to be given a special present. What they thought was a birthday party, however, was really a test–one which Aya failed. She was found
to possess the reincarnated spirit of an ageless tennyo, one bent on the recovery of her hagoromo and the destruction of the Mikage family. Aya quickly
found herself separated from her beloved brother, and hunted by her own family.

There was a man who worked for the Post Office, whose job it was to process
all the mail that had illegible addresses. One day a letter came to his
desk, addressed in a shaky handwriting, to God. He thought he should open it
to see what it was about.

He opened it and read:
Dear God,
I am a 93-year old widow, living on a very small pension. Yesterday someone
stole my purse. It had $100.00 in it, which was all the money I had until my
next pension check. Next Sunday is Christmas, and I had invited two of my
friends over for dinner. Without that money, I have nothing to buy food
with. I have no family to turn to, and you are my only hope. Can you please
help me?

The postal worker was touched. He showed the letter to all of the other
employees. Each of them dug into his or her wallet and came up with a few
dollars. By the time he made the rounds, he had collected $96.00, which was
put into an envelope and sent to the woman. The rest of the day, all of the
workers felt a warm glow for the kind thing they had done.

Christmas came and went. A few days later, another letter came from the old
lady, to God. All of the workers gathered around while the letter was
opened. It read:

Dear God,
How can I ever thank you enough for what you did for me? Because of your
gift of love, I was able to fix a glorious dinner for my friends. We had a
very nice day, and I told my friends of your wonderful gift.

By the way, there was $4 missing. I think it must have been taken by those
crooks at the Post Office.
