MACKY AND THE HELP DESK
John Macky called in a trouble report to his
company's Help Desk when his computer wouldn't
turn on. The troubleshooter found that Macky
had plugged his power strip back into itself
and didn't understand why there was no power.
MACKY AND THE FAX MACHINE
Macky: "Do you know anything about this fax-machine?"
Secretary: "A little. What's wrong?"
Macky: "Well, I sent a fax, and the recipient called
back to say all he received was a cover-sheet
and a blank page. I tried it again, and the
same thing happened."
Secretary: "How did you load the sheet?"
Macky: "It's a pretty sensitive memo, and I didn't want
anyone else to read it by accident, so I folded
it so only the recipient would open it and read it."
MACKY AND A DEAD BATTERY
John Macky was found weeping and crying his heart out
beside his car. "Do you need some help?", a passerby
asked. Macky replied, "I knew I should have replaced
the battery in this remote door unlocker. Now I can't
get into my car. Do you think they (pointing to a distant
convenience store) would have a battery for this?"
The passerby replied, "Hmmm, I dunno. Do you have an
"No, just this remote thingy," Macky answered, handing it
and the car keys to the passerby, who took the key and
manually unlocked the door, and replied, "Why don't you
just drive over there and check on the batteries...it's
a long walk."
MACKY AND THE HELP DESK - PART II
Help Desk: What does the screen say now?
Macky: It says, 'Hit ENTER when ready'.
Help Desk: Well?
Macky: How do I know when it's ready?
MACKY WORKS AT AN INSURANCE COMPANY
George Jones called his car insurance company to tell them
to change his address from Texas to Vermont. John Macky,
who took the call asked where Vermont was. As George tried
to explain, Macky interrupted and said, "Look, I'm not stupid
or anything, just tell me what state it's in?"
MACKY THE TYPIST
Several years ago John Macky was typing and turned to a
secretary and said, "I'm almost out of typing paper.
What do I do?" "Just use copier paper," she told him.
With that, Macky took his last remaining blank piece of
paper, put it on the copier and made five blank copies.
MACKY AND THE HELP DESK - PART III
One day one John Macky called the computer help desk
and asked if anything "bad" would happen if he dropped
coins into the openings of his PC. The Help Desk asked
if this was something he was thinking of doing. Macky
snorted, "never mind" and hung up. Suspicious, the Help
Desk tech got out his trusty tool kit and paid Macky a
visit. Opening Macky's CPU case, sure enough, there
was 40 cents.
MACKY GETS SYSADMIN JOB
John Macky once got a job as a System Admininstrator and
one of HIS servers crashed. He inserted a CD and needed
to type a path name to a directory named "i386." He started
to type it and paused, and asked a nearby secretary, "Where
on the keyboard is that line thing?" The secretary asked
what the hell he was talking about, and Macky mumbled,
"You know, that one that looks like an upside-down
exclamation mark." The secretary replied, "You mean the
letter 'i'?" Macky replied, "Yeah, that's it!"
MACKY AT HOME
John Macky had a broken lamp which he wanted to discard.
Unfortunately, the power cord ran under his refrigerator,
making it impossible to move the lamp while the cord was
attached. He decided to cut the cord, since the lamp was
unusable anyway. He didn't remember to unplug it first.
His landlord, investigating weird noises, found Macky
thrashing and rolling back and forth on the kitchen floor.
MACKY'S MOTOR HOME
John Macky's large motorhome was towed into the garage.
The front of the vehicle was in dire need of repair and
the whole thing generally looked like an extra in "Twister."
The service manager asked what had happened. Macky replied
that he had set the cruise control, then went in back to
make a sandwich.
MACKY ONCE WAS A SECRETARY
I called a company and asked to speak to Bob. John Macky
answered said, "Bob is on vacation. Would you like to hold?"
MACKY AT HOME - PART II
Curious, John Macky called Blockbuster and mentioned that
before the movie begins a message comes on the screen saying,
"This movie has been altered to fit your television screen."
Macky then added: "How do they know what size screen I have?
MACKY AND THE HELP DESK - PART IV
Macky: Hello, Help Desk? Uhh, the coffee cup holder on my
PC broke off.
Help Desk: Huh? What do you mean "coffee cup holder"?
Macky: You know, that little shelf that slides in
and out when you push a button?
Help Desk: No, I don't understand. Please describe it.
Macky: It's on the front of the computer just below
the floppy drive and just above the power
switch, and when I press this button, a door
opens up and out comes the coffee cup holder.
Well, this morning, it broke off and spilled
coffee all over me and the computer.
Help Desk: Wait a minute......(Pssst, hey Boss, it's Macky
again. This time he broke off the disk carriage
on his CD-ROM.)
MACKY AND THE HELP DESK - PART V
Macky: Hello, Help Desk? Uhh, where is the "ANY" key on
Help Desk: The "enny" key?
Macky: Yes that's the one. I can't find it.
Help Desk: I don't know what the hell you are talking about,
so please explain and give details.
Macky: Well, on my screen it says, "Press any key" and
I can't find it.
Help Desk: Wait a minute......(Pssst, hey Boss, this is it.
I've had it. You can take this job and shove it.

A cartooon character in a sense, not unlike
Wile E. Coyote, a type of masochist who
thrives on deep and profound pain.
An electronic warfare practitioner, he's been
wreaking havoc and consternation on the
denizens of this newsgroup for three years.
He fancies itself as a great benefactor to the
newsgroup; a messiah of some sort. I say
"itself", because it's a classic hermaphrodite
with a number of very serious mental and
physical disorders, chief of which is the
world's first documented case of a pseudo-female
brain inside a psuedo-male cranial cavity.
> Does he know anything about Scanners?
No, of course not. It prefers a world of
circular logic where sense and sensibility;
rhyme and reason; and linear logic are strangers.
It doesn't know its arse from any of the holes in
its face.....and to paraphrase what someone else
said today,.... neither do we. You can't tell
by looking, its mouth from its sweet patooty.
It knows nothing of scanners aside from the
"flatbed" type....and then only because "flat"
and "bed" are music to its ears.
It's a pitiful, warped, perverted life form that's
not accepted by any other life-form community on
the planet......a pariah, if you will....a
minuscule, pathetic, life support system for an
as yet to be determined perverse DNA combinatorial
Look at it this way.....according to some other
testimony on this newsgroup, Mackey is said to
have suck-started a Harley-Davidson motorcycle.

In the three years that he has been busy distrupting this newsgroup, he has
posted several thousand off-topic messages and only a handful that are remotely

his sole purpose is to cause trouble.

the crap that you spew out of your mouth and that all of it is lies.

when you said you were not doing the mail bombings.

It's all relative. I don't live in any incorperated area. On a clear
day, if I stand in just the right spot I can see Beaverton.
The person who was asking where I was from was in California. To
give a person a vague idea of where I am at I might have said
Beaverton which is accurate to within 20 miles or so.
> You lied about the warrant and having proof that one existed,
NO, I NEVER said there was a warrant. Infact, I stated that we should
ignore the word of a warrant unless we get proof.
In article <35C15F...@parg.org>,
All you can do is lie mackey, it was not someone from California, it was one
of the people that you were forging post and doing rouge cancels on . If they
want to referesh your memory they can or you can do your own searching and
find the post.
Just keep on lying as it is catching up with you, many more people on the
newsgroup are now seeing what a filthy liar you are . People on here don't
believe any of the crap your spewing, you and your buddy Roger have been
caught doing the email bombs. Both of you figured you could get away with it
and not be traced but as you can see it was traced right back to the source.
And as for the warrant you know your guilty of that lie too and your just
trying to side step the issue by adding some more lies saying your only
Most of us on the newsgroup know how you feel about Bill and if you were to
see him drowning instead of throwing him a life preserver you would throw him
anchor so stop with the lies of you were only defending Bill. People on here
are not stupid , if anyone is stupid it is you for thinking people are going
to believe the crap your posting.

You stated quite clearly that you lived in Beaverton. If you actually
don't, you lied - and you should clear that up with the FCC, doncha think?
They need to know PRECISELY where you live for licensing purposes.

Actually, you DID say there was a warrant - and you continue to say it by
referring to it.
No, I said that OTHER people said there was a warrant. YOU
are saying there is a warrant by referring to it over & over

I've always said there was NO PROOF to support the accusation so we
should ignore the issue unless someone presents verifiable facts to
support the accusation. Are you trying to say that it is a lie
that without facts we should ignore the accusation?

You have known there was not any warrant out for Bill and that the
accusations you and obfd made were false.
You have known this since April 6th of 1998 and yet continued bringing
up the accusations.
See you have so many lies going you forget the post that you make .
As the post you made back to Jack Anderson below, and that is fact and
proof that what you are doing is nothing more then a personal vendetta,
you and the great obfd made up the story about the warrant to make
others turn against Bill from your accusations.

Yeah right mackey and that is why you are keeping your crap up and
attacking Bill on the newsgroup because you like him and want to be
mackey you are nothing but a compulsive liar and will do anything to try
and ruin someones reputation for imagined wrongs done to you.
You need to stop your crap and slither away from whence you came and
leave the newsgroup alone.

The only accusation I made was that without verifiable proof we
should ignore the statement of Bill Cheek molesting children. Are
you now saying I was wrong to say that?
Regarding statements of "obfd", you need to talk to him about those.

So WHERE was the "proof" you refer to?
Your a liar pure and simple and there is no way you can dance around
You can keep cutting and pasting all you want to change the content of
the postings to suit your needs and lies.
But there is one thing you keep forgetting, the original posts are still
available which proves you are a liar.
