Last week Twitter discovered a breach in their system that could have allowed someone to download the passwords of every user of their platform. They send out a message recommending that everyone change their passwords as a just in case measure, while indicating that they didn’t think anyone else had discovered the issue.
this would be an interesting password
There was a lot of grumbling about it; not the breach itself but in the need to create new passwords. I understand it; I hate changing passwords all the time myself. However, I don’t think my issue is the same as the issue of many others. Continue reading Easy Ways To Create Tough Passwords→
For the third time ever, I decided to do a video a day on one of my YouTube channels. This is the 2nd time I’ve done it on my channel related to “stuff”; the other one was via my business channel.

I got to the end of last week, ready to write a new blog post… when I realized that I hadn’t received a single comment on the previous post. That’s pretty rare; I usually get at least one comment on everything.

The last time I wrote an article that didn’t get any comments… May 25, 2010! Continue reading I Almost Didn’t Get A Comment; This Is What I Did About It…→
This article will look like it’s all over the place; it just might be. What I’ve found in life is that even a rambling post has lessons for everyone to learn. Thus, I’m going to share things about scams old and new, promoting oneself and of course social media. Let’s start with promotion.
