Tech – for Everyone

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

Monday, Thanksgiving week.. (updated)

A couple of items for you, today, folks.

As you might have noticed, many retailers have started their ‘Black Friday’ sales already. I’ve been keeping my eye on Gadgets and Gizmos, and can tell you that there are deals out there that make waiting for BF (or ‘Cyber Tuesday’) unnecessary. I monitor Tiger Direct and New Egg for my tech deals (links to sales pages). And of course I check Amazon.

* Have you every been minding your own business, and happen to catch  a song that you haven’t heard in a really, really long time, and – magically – forgotten memories come flooding back? That happened to me yesterday when I heard this tune..

* And since that put me in the mood for ‘classic greats’.. here’s another for you (tho, Led Zepplin live is not for ‘everyone’):

Well.. I hope you are all having fun getting ready for your holiday.. ;)

A Day Early

Made possible by the magic of digital wizardry, I am now in two places at once — here, and away (fishing).

I scheduled this to appear today because I’d like to share with you an important message for your Thursday…

Hey hey mama said the way you move, Gon’ make you sweat, gon’ make you groove.

Ah-ah child way you shake that thing, Gon’ make you burn, gon’ make you sting.

Now, I know that many of you will not recognize the (possibly) most famous opening lines from the (unquestionably) greatest rock and roll band of all time, so I found a video that we can either call “Today’s Educational Video” or “Friday Fun A Day Early”.


Because, I truly believe, it is very healthy to play air guitar every once in a while, and I want us all to be healthy. (So go ahead! It really doesn’t matter if anyone’s looking. [Well.. maybe you don’t want to rock out in front of the boss.. Your call.])

Breaking News: It seems there is a new Firefox beta available.

Number 15.
