Tech – for Everyone

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

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!

Today’s quote:Few companies that installed computers to reduce the employment of clerks have realized their expectations… They now need more, and more expensive clerks even though they call them ‘operators’ or ‘programmers.‘” ~ Peter Drucker

Sunday Beauty XIII

For today’s Sunday Beauty photo, I went searching for photos taken in one of my favorite locations — Yosemite.

 

El Capitan, Yosemite National Park, USA.

I am rather lucky in that Yosemite National Park is not too terribly far from me, and I have been able to visit many times. If you have been fortunate enough to have visited yourself, I believe you will agree with me that it is special. If you have not yet been, I hope you will one day get a chance to visit. (I have never said so here before, but I am a fan and supporter of our National Park Service.)
