Anti-gay Fundies URGENTLY invite strangers to fiddle with their computers
Here is a once in a lifetime opportunity for the adventurous among you!

This anti-gay pro-fetus group wants to invite YOU to play with their computers! URGENTLY!

Date: Fri, 28 Jan 2005 15:29:11 -0500 <03:29:11 PM EST>
From: knowhim@earthlink.net

The Christian Action League had to purchase a new computer for the office in December. Because the old computer was able to operate an accounting system in DOS, we had been using Q&A for our bookkeeping system. However, new computers no longer use DOS programs; so therefore, we were forced to go to a newer program.

The company that works on our computers suggested QuickBooks; so, we purchased the Premier Nonprofit Edition and had a service in Raleigh to install it and get us started. However, that person cannot be here on a regular basis; therefore we need someone who would be available on an as need basis, whether by phone or in person. Once the program is tailored to our needs, we don't think your services would be needed except on rare occasions.

The Christian Action League is in urgent need to have someone who knows how to operate this program and who would donate their time to help us get the program functioning for our needs. The main need we have at the present is someone who can show us how to merge our contribution letters with the financial information posted in QuickBooks.


If you know how to operate QuickBooks Premier Nonprofit Edition and would be willing to help, please call our office at 919 787-0606. The need is URGENT!

1. Comical - they definitely don't understand computers
You can still run DOS on Windows XP.

What say we purchase their old computers? It's highly unlikely that they'd understand how to "wipe" theirs clean. Probably did it with Windex (TM), while still plugged in and turned on.

2. ...merge our contribution letters with the financial information...
Sounds like pretty valuable information.

Would be a shame if it fell into the "wrong" hands.

Incredibly stupid and almost comically illiterate. Their press releases are virtually unreadable and a scream.

They're the ones who thunder about "Gay Day" at Disneyland.
