Tech – for Everyone

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

Still here…


I didn’t realize just how long it’d been since I posted anything here… sorry!
(And oddly.. my viewership has gone up.. Hmmm… )

Yes, I’m still here.

Yes, the tech news is scarier than ever.

No, you probably (still) don’t want Windows X.. unless of course you’re still using XP.. which is insane..

No, you cannot “fix” this tech, and make it “safe”, or “secure”.. it needs to be scrapped.

And, yes. I hope you are having a super-groovy day.. wherever you are.

Today’s quote:The Paradoxical Commandments

People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered.
Love them anyway.

If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.

If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies.
Succeed anyway.

The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.

Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.

The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.
Think big anyway.

People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.
Fight for a few underdogs anyway.

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway.

People really need help but may attack you if you do help them.
Help people anyway.

Give the world the best you have and you’ll get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you have anyway.” ~ Kent M. Keith

  1. Also of note:

    Believe it !
    You are a find,
    a jewel in someone’s eye,
    you are unique…
    even if you don’t feel it,
    believe it, cause….
    God don’t make no junk

    …….or as Omar Sharif was quoted:
    “God created religion, man screwed it up”

  2. Wrote a lot last year about how Windows 10 hijacks a computer system to do updates, not bothering to mention that the updates take up a lot of time to complete. I feel your pain.

    • tbpauly,
      I wouldn’t call it “pain”, it’s just that for a long time now, I have not liked the direction greed and short-sightedness has led the direction of tech’s evolution…
      It’s like these guys have never read (or watched) any sci-fi…
      (Dum Der Der let’s build Skynet, put AI into drones.. and we’ll need guns on ’em too.. dum der der… What could possibly go wrong?”)
