This Just In: Person I potentially don’t know linked to my blog

I sup­pose it’s been about 8 months.  Fright­ful­ly few­er posts that I’d like to have made in that time, but about 8 months — since I start­ed the blog.  I’ve watched the sta­tis­tics… used the google tools to see how … Con­tin­ue read­ing

SPAM: Anyone Can Register?

I can’t say the Inter­net ever sur­pris­es me.  There real­ly are an infi­nite num­ber of mon­keys out there.  My CRIA post con­tin­ues to attract the most SPAM that comes to my atten­tion as I described in anoth­er post.  Most­ly, how­ev­er, … Con­tin­ue read­ing

My N900 Continues to Amuse and Amaze (Me)

Apolo­gies in advance if this post ram­bles some­what; the sub­ject mat­ter is also some­what vague.  My phone, the n900 from Nokia is hard to pigeon hole.  The oper­at­ing sys­tem (Mae­mo) is shared by Nokia’s oth­er tablet com­put­ers.  The fact that … Con­tin­ue read­ing

Reading Spam: Where are the Normal People

This blog has not yet been in exis­tence for two weeks and I’m writ­ing my sec­ond post about spam.  The phe­nom­e­non of spam is just amaz­ing (like a train wreck) to watch.
Cur­rent­ly, the char­ac­ter of spam that I’m see­ing is of … Con­tin­ue read­ing

My first dollar (fifty)

I had a nice Christ­mas Eve with my par­ents and one of my sis­ters at her house.  Nice din­ner, nice con­ver­sa­tion… all around pleas­ant.  I was show­ing off my blog… fish­ing for com­ple­ments.  I even broke out Clones (see my … Con­tin­ue read­ing

… And queue the Tribbles…

Hon­est ques­tion: How do I sub­scribe to your blog.  It’s not like I should get excit­ed.  It’s only my sis­ter, not hoards of scream­ing fans, but an hon­est ques­tion, nonethe­less.
I have to admit I was stumped at first.  I still … Con­tin­ue read­ing

Oh so that’s how they do it… (part 2)

When I first installed squir­rel­mail (a web IMAP client), one of the first things I enjoyed doing was installing a whack of new plu­g­ins that did all sorts of wacky things.  Some of them got delet­ed for not work­ing and/or … Con­tin­ue read­ing

Add the Ads.

There.  That’s that box checked.  There be ads!  My google adsense account was approved today and I man­aged to insert some ads in the wid­get area (that’s what word­press calls the bits on the right of the page).  Inter­est­ing­ly, it … Con­tin­ue read­ing

Oh so that’s how they do it…

Noth­ing in life is free, but if you’re smart, you use some of your skills to avoid  pay­ing for some things in your life.  As a tech­ni­cal or com­put­er per­son, I try to avoid pay­ing for things relat­ed to com­put­ers.  … Con­tin­ue read­ing
