Tech – for Everyone

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

Some Images…

Folks, have you ever had “one of those days”? Here’s some images I hope will make me feel better…

First up:

What my day is like..

I understand that – in some places – it’s very nice out today…..

Next up: This was yesterday..

.. and this was today..

.. and WordPress’s Akismet spam filter has been catching at least two dozen spam comments a day for the past week, or so.

Seems the botnets are alive and well. (Don’t know what a “botnet” is? Please, click here.)

But, I cheer up. I know “I will get by” and that every silver lining has a touch of gray…

Must be getting early Clocks are running late Paint-by-number morning sky Looks so phony
Dawn is breaking everywhere Light a candle, curse the glare Draw the curtains I don’t care ’cause It’s all right
I will get by I will get by I will get by I will survive
I see you’ve got your list out Say your piece and get out Yes, I get the gist of it But it’s all right
Sorry that you feel that way The only thing there is to say Every silver lining’s got a Touch of grey
I will get by I will get by I will get by I will survive
It’s a lesson to me The Ables and the Bakers and the C’s The ABC’s, we all must face And try to keep a little grace
It’s a lesson to me The Deltas and the East and the Freeze The ABC’s, we all think of Try to give a little love
I know the rent is in arrears The dog has not been fed in years It’s even worse than it appears But it’s all right
The cow is giving kerosene Kid can’t read at seventeen The words he knows are all obscene But it’s all right
I will get by I will get by I will get by I will survive
The shoe is on the hand it fits There’s really nothing much to it Whistle through your teeth and spit ‘Cause it’s all right
Oh well, a touch of grey Kind of suits you anyway That was all I had to say It’s all right
I will get by I will get by I will get by I will survive
We will get by We will get by We will get by We will survive
We will get by We will get by We will get by We will survive

      I have never heard of “CloudEight Absolute Security”….
      Nor find anything on it except what they themselves wrote.
      Sounds like the cure for everything bad, though – doesn’t it?

    • delenn13,
      I wonder how many saw that..

      .. and how many did not think it was funny .. (“Where’s my free stuff??!! I want my free stuff!!”)

      I did not see it, so thank you.
      I did not see it because I have learned that if I do not 100%, rock-solid, trust the site/source/subject, and my research reveals that others trust it too (aka “it has a good track record”), I do not click the link.

      Even if it does say “free download”.

      Silly me. I missed out.
