It’s amazing how much digital stuff we generate over the years. Documents, pix, video, audio and more. I am discovering I should have gone through a bunch of stuff but like a hoarder I can’t seem to get rid of anything. A lot of stuff I have found has been with me for over 10 years. We all have things we hold on to both on our computer and then in our house. The one thing is that you need to find a place to store it all.
It is 2015
At least have an email account even if you don’t have a computer. Most folks have Internet access available to them even if its at a library or coffee shop. It’s how the world works and some people need to catch up.
Computers know how to push buttons.
I saw my blog today in Microsoft’s Internet Explorer and I am reminded that nothing looks good in it. This is a lousy browser. My Flickr and Instagram pictures don’t look right. If anyone has Firefox or Chrome on PC or Mac can you check to see if the blog as a whole looks right?
Surfing and blogging on the web with Ubuntu 14.04. I have dual booted Ubuntu and Windows 7 operating systems on my new to me laptop. Oh how I have missed you my Linux based friend.

I recommend using a Linux distribution such as Linux Mint or Ubuntu. There is a learning curve but both are free of charge and you can’t beat that. (Click the link above to read the story from Lifehacker.com)
Yesterday I asked…
The answers I got were interesting. Some thought it wouldn’t be a good thing to do because it keeps one from connecting with people in your company. Others thought it would be OK with family but with friends only if they ask or use devices themselves. Timing is a issue too, some say you don’t want to sound too eager while others say ask for it as soon as possible.
This seems to be a new area of cyber etiquette. Use your best judgment depending on where you are and who you are with. Of course when asking for WiFi be sure to not hog bandwidth, thats never a polite thing to do.
