Digital Stuff

Standard

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.

How to Move On After Windows XP Without Giving Up Your PC

On April 8th, Microsoft will officially cut off support, service, and security updates for Windows XP. It’s been a long time coming, but depending on where you stand, it’s either overdue or absolute armageddon.

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)

Instant Inquiry Results From Yesterday’s WiFi Question

Standard

Yesterday I asked…

How long after arriving at someone’s house is it appropriate to ask for the WiFi password?

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.
