The wild north

As my morning travels carried me westward to my hometown to a Waffle House.  I have returned from the westward travel.  It is wild because the traffic is crazy this time of the morning.  While at the Waffle House, I heard about a shooting about a mile from me.  Someone was being robbed I am not sure of the full story myself, anyway someone got shot during a robbery attempt.  This kind of stuff is why I am behind the 2nd amendment and I also have the permit.  I will not get into the politics of carrying, it is my choice under the law, therefore, I support that right so granted me and others.

Looking at the title and thinking about what I wrote here, maybe the wild west should be the wild north since the shooting was north of my hometown and a mile from where I live.  I have adjusted for the misnomer.  In all rights, the combat zone is not this area even if we do have problems at times, the gang concentration if more in Atlanta than here.  I am about 50 miles westward of Atlanta.

Doing some research and will be back with maybe some news of good or bad as published in our world today.

Computer life!

I remember when the first computers were coming out onto the market.  Apple had one, Macintosh was an Apple brand, IBM had one, Compaq had one.  I do not know how we used them then because memory was nothing at all.  When the internet came around computers went wild, all households almost had one.

The crash of the market in the 90’s changed things a lot.  Space travel did wonders for small chips, more memory, and eventually cheaper units.  By that time we had the cell phones out, a bit larger than now.  Soon, the cell phones turned into a pocket computer, PDA’s, Blackberries, etc.  Now today, memory and keyboards are all around us.  A 3-year-old can work a phone better that many adults.

Technology, we have to love it.  So if we are so smart on the internet, then why can’t we upgrade the GRID, make it technical, and secure it someway to keep hackers from getting into it.  Do not publicise how it works and the security behind its operation.

I am just one person, I have a large desktop, 2×2 laptop, two tablets, and a cell, myself.  A big house full of people wow, one would wonder.  I do not do games on anything that I have.  I tried Candy Crust once for a while, I learned that I was not smart enough for that game.  A computer world, a computer life.

Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and others

From the day that I became interested in the Blog concept, not knowing nothing about what I would be doing to bring about a post.  Still do not, I am sure, but even on the other social media as in the title list.  I use to go to Facebook often just to see what someone was up to, not to really have a communication with anyone.  YouTube, I would go there to learn something sometime.  It is hard to track the concept and the computer is the venue that you are watching the instructions from.  Twitter, I do like it some but really 140 words.  Get real.

You know even with all the safety each social media has people still get on there to solicit people for money and marriage.  You look their background up and it has two pictures, a few words but at the same time, the conversation starts out slowly, then a long letter comes to you wanting money for a mic, ticket to the US, or romance.  I block them long before that point but I do see it coming.  Now I will not even let them get to the long letter part of their story.  They are all the same, picture has changed, the name changed, but the words are the same.

Forward we shall move and life will be good.
