Some more on the equifax thing. Yesterday I posted links to the fact that the Chief of Security for Equifax had a Masters in MUSIC..
I came across an excellent article where, apparently, the writer was in direct contact with the hackers. The lack of security of OUR PERSONAL INFORMATION at the hands of Equifax is appalling.
In one example, they had a critical dashboard secured as admin/admin.. In another case, they had the private keys stored directly on a dashboard page. Continue reading
My previous post mentioned difficulties encountered in trying to restore a single deleted Google Contact.
Here is a method for making a periodic backup copy of your contacts and how to recover a single deleted contact (Assuming it was in the backup) Continue reading
I started using Google Contacts to sync Outlook with my phone.. That part works pretty well.
I decided to go to the new Google Contacts web interface and categorize my contacts by using labels. First of all, the interface to do that could be a LOT better than it is. Continue reading
When will companies get their acts together and provide functioning websites??
I wanted to check on my Peco bill. I thought I paid online through their site. However, when I tried to check, I got.
“We apologize for the inconvenience, but we are unable to retrieve your scheduled payment information at this time.” Continue reading
Let me preface this by saying that the DCS 936L is not designed for outdoor use. I installed it under my garage eave to look at the driveway and doorway.
The way the unit is now, it’s worse than worthless. I turned the sensitivity up to 50 percent (It Was windy today and the unit is under the garage eve looking at the driveway and door). Continue reading
I’m working with a new machine with McAfee preinstalled.. OK. What bunch of rocket scientists decided to put the SCAN button in the context menu right on top of the SHRED button.
This is almost as bad as the idiots who would put the physical CD “eject” button right next to the Power button. OK, time to pop out the Grateful Dead “Touch of Grey” album and insert Procul Harums’ Whiter Shade of Pa… OH CRAP.. I HIT THE POWER BUTTON.. AS SOON AS I RELEASE IT A HALF HOUR OF WORK VAPORIZES.. (only did that once but once was enough) Continue reading
I’m trying to set up an HP Pavillion all in one. It took me a good five minutes to locate the power button on the bottom of the display.. I can only imagine the designers Continue reading
I depend heavily on ways to deal with the insanity caused by construction on our section of I-95. About a week ago, I noticed that the bluetooth volume for Waze was almost non existent.
I’m using a Moto X Pure with an older Plantronics Bluetooth earpiece. The Bluetooth was working fine with Pandora and Google Hangouts Phone calls.
I checked on the Waze site and this seems to be a problem that has affected both android and I Phones since about 2013. My guess is that some recent update caused the problem. Continue reading
When I scan documents, I prefer to use my own system. For example, I usually make a file name of the date and then the subject of the scan. i.e. 20161123 Winning lotto ticket.pdf. By doing a date of YYYYMMDD I can more easily sort the documents.
Buttttt.. when I purchased a new Epson Printer and upgraded, I found that it wasn’t as easy to set the file name as it was in the previous version. I figured a work around. If you look at the File Save Settings, you see a file name and an Edit button. However, I was not able to type in the file name box. So, hit the edit button. Continue reading
I have a need to review .AVI files in my inbox. My email is gmail. If I am using outlook, everything is fine. However, if I use gmail.com, I get “No Preview Available” and a choice of cloud based players along with download or download to Google Drive.
I just want to watch the steeeeenking video. I’m leery of third party viewers. I tried some of the third party viewers gmail suggested and they were worthless. Continue reading
