Overnight Mail | Poll | Friday Fun

Today’s Friday Fun video took over two years to make.. And fit ever so nicely with me, as our nice weather has me thinking about vacation plans… It is spectacular time-lapse photography — enjoy!

Also: this week I posted a poll. I am curious what you think. Specifically, what number of hours spent sitting at a computer surfing the web would be too many hours (aka “a problem”) .. if there is a number. Results so far are interesting..

I guess I am normal in that one of the first things I do in the morning is check my email. Overnight my ISP delivered…

I read yesterday that phishing “attack” emails was actually getting worse in the U.S. – three times worse: Report: Phishing is getting worse in North America

“North America experienced a 300% increase in phishing activity last year, according to a Websense report. “This was an amazing jump across the board,” said Patrik Runald of Websense Labs. “And it’s the most dangerous category because you don’t have to click on anything to get infected. This is also a moving target, as are bot networks, while phishing is more static in the way it works.” Read more..

Oh. Well. Nothing can be done about it.

So why worry.

Hey. Cheer up! It’s Friday!

  1. That video??? WOW. The scenes and the music…

    Had to use IE(probably the 3rd time i have used IE this yr.) to get to the poll. Can’t figure out what is blocking it.

  2. Paul…that video…its Overpowering Beauty…accompanied by such Magnificent Music…(also some of his other music…beautiful! Thanks for the lead…Shaun

    Your Poll..Guess I am there… in the Mid Rating. Being on the puter is my Morning Fix. (Java too) I try to limit my time in the mornings, since the mornings are busy.
    I experimented once, stayed off the puter for a day and night, that absence was fairly comfortable… but with my inbox “overflowing” the next day…I was back to square one, with having to spend more time attending to stuff that had piled up.

    Your Quote: Yes…Counter Productive as seen in many instances!

    • Gaia,
      Yes, beware the Law Of Unintended Consequences.

      That video really is something else, isn’t it? (A good one to ‘share’.)
