Tech – for Everyone

Tech Tips and Tricks & Advice – written in plain English.

Thursday – Tech Tie-togethers

Tie-togethers? Maybe I need another cup of coffee..? Time is limited today, but I want to take a minute and make you, Dear Reader, aware of a couple of items..

• Yesterday I wrote about social networking and the Internet and the concept of privacy. I failed to mention in that article (see, One More Reason I Don’t Facebook) the popular How To article I posted some back for those who have joined sites, like Facebook, but now want to completely un-join, and get your information removed. That article is here, How To Remove Your Name From Search Engines and Social Networking Sites.

If you are serious about protecting your identity and personal security, you should take actions now to block your personal information from public viewing.

(Personally, I do not see why these are limited to “workplace”.. well, a few; but the rest strike me as allatimealways “rules”.)

Today’s free download: You’ve heard me say it: stay safe – keep your software up to date! Update Checker (from download site FileHippo) will scan your computer for installed software, check the versions and then send this information to FileHippo.com to see if there are any newer releases. These are then neatly displayed in your browser for you to download. (A good review of this utility is here: Free FileHippo Update Checker – Excellent Alternative To Secunia PSI)

Today’s quotable quote:My grandfather once told me that there are two kinds of people: those who work and those who take the credit. He told me to try to be in the first group; there was less competition there.” ~ Indira Gandhi
