A mother in Pittsburgh tells of having dinner with her little son and
daughter. It had been a long, trying day at home, and her husband was
still at the office. Both children were fussy and didn't want to eat,
and her patience had reached it's limit. She looked up and sighed, "Oh,
God, help me with these children." Immediately her four-year-old
daughter bowed her head and was silent. The mother was delighted,
thinking the girl was asking God to help her be good. But then the girl
looked up at her and said, "I just asked Him not to help you."

of Religion" by Dick Van Dyke
An interesting IS bulletin which was really published by one company.
Recently, two individuals from USPL were traveling to Belgium on Sabena
Belgium World Airlines, which is affiliated with Delta Airlines. They were
seated in row 6 of the plane where seats contain the tray tables in the
armrest section of the seat.
They setup their tray tables and proceeded to use their laptop during
flight, both their PCs began experiencing problems. Apparently the tray
tables were magnetized, so they will not make noises while stored in the
armrests. The magnetized trays corrupted the hard drives of both laptops.
On this particular Belgium flight, the aircraft happen to be a "new"
Airbus 340, which explains why this has not surfaced until now. The
problem seems to be with a specific European aircraft seat manufacturer.
US Airways, NorthWestern and United have no plans to utilize these
magnetized trays in their new Airbus aircraft. Boeing and McDonald Douglas
also has no plans to use these magnetized trays in their new aircraft, and
there have been no reported cases of other types of aircraft experiencing
The purpose of this notice is to simply make travelers aware of the
"potential" problem, especially on Airbus aircraft built for European-
based airlines. If the tray table appears to be magnetized (use a
paperclip to see if it sticks), then I advise people NOT to use their
laptop computer on these trays.
