Dear Sassy: I have been receiving a lot of e-cards in my inbox lately. They say that they are from a "family member" but I don't recognize any of the sites listed to click on. Do you think these are spam?
~ It's not my Birthday

Dear Birthday: Sassy is glad that you asked this question. This IS spam that can compromise your system. Do not click on the link! There have been several emails sent from "" and "". As always if it looks suspicious it normally is suspicious.

I have been accepted to the PhD program in Library Science at TWU to begin this fall. Sassy won't be going anywhere as she is too expensive and thus will continue her day job.

Dear Sassy: On some blogs, I see an icon labeled " It." What is the purpose of this icon? Why would Sassy it to her blog?
~ Is it really Delicious?

Dear Really:
Sassy does apologize for not responding sooner. Sassy just created a account ~ not that there is anything posted there... is a way to store your Internet bookmarks out on the web. This means that if you (or anyone else) needed to access your bookmarks no matter where you are or what computer you are using, you would be able to access them. The software will need to be installed on your computer and has an icon that looks like this:
The "logo" as seen on the site. and will be placed on your Internet browser. On Sassy's blog there is a list of my favorite links. Sassy does now have a account but hasn't added anything quite yet. However, you can look at Kerri's page at: to give you an idea of what it looks like.

Dear Sassy: I typed up my email message on my computer but I can't find the "send" button. What happened? Where did it go?
~ Starting to panic

Dear Starting: Don't panic! You can easily fix this problem. Since you already have a new mail message open you can click on View, Toolbars and make sure Standard is checked. Sassy is guessing that it was unchecked. After you select Standard your Send button (and many others) should reappear.
