This is what our federal government has been up to, folks. Dell PowerEdge servers, infiltrated. Apple iPhone, infiltrated. Cisco ASA firewalls, infiltrated. Juniper firewalls, infiltrated. GSM phones, infiltrated. Windows Mobile phones, infiltrated. Even RF implants in USB connectors and VGA cables for covert monitoring. And there is absolutely no doubt in my mind that this is only the tip of the iceberg.

I think the only thing more 90's then the VHS box is the ACTUAL VIDEO:
Microsoft Windows 95 Video Guide with Jennifer Aniston and Matthew Perry - Full Video
I could not stop laughing during the part where that lady teaches Jennifer the difference between minimizing and closing a program. It's pure gold.

Dev\Code\Script  - 
Working on a Windows startup script for a client, I had need to do a version check on an EXE but couldn't find an easy way to programatically do so. I didn't really want to re-work the script from scratch in PowerShell, though that would have been a possibility. I found that using the DataFile function of WMIC was finicky but this explanation cleared it up and got the job done.

An honest account of what happens when financial calamity strikes

"The reality of poverty can spring quickly while the psychological effects take longer to surface. When you lose a job, your first thought isn’t, “Oh my God, I’m poor. I’d better sell all my nice stuff!” It’s “I need another job. Now.” When you’re scrambling, you hang on to the things that work, that bring you some comfort. That Mercedes was the one reliable, trustworthy thing in our lives."
My descent into poverty was swift, and mortifying. Here's what it taught me.

From the article: "FireEye goes into further detail, saying the vulnerability originates in Flash, the animation and video software from Adobe"

The sooner flash dies the safer the internet will be. 
More than half of the world's browsers are affected. Be careful where you click.

The Rules:
2. See Rule #1.
3. Treat me with respect and I'll treat you with respect.
4. If you don't follow the above rules, I will block you.

Some things to know about me:
1. I don't make a ton of original posts, but they do happen. I post a lot of things that I find both on the web as well as things I find on Google+.
2. I like hearing other peoples' points of view, but while I'll listen, don't expect me to adopt your beliefs. See Rules 1 & 3.
3. If you make a comment that comes across as intending to start an argument, don't expect that I will respond. I'm here to make friends, not enemies. See Rules 3 & 4.
4. I periodically post cat pictures. If you don't like it, don't circle me.
5. From time-to-time I remove people from my circles that have not been active in more than a month. If you're regularly using G+, you won't have any issues. If you aren't regularly using G+, first, shame on you, and second, you probably won't notice that I've removed you.

Some things that interest me--in no particular order:
Technology (new tech, circuitry, cell phones, tablets, computers.... anything)
Android OS
Video Games (PS3, mostly RPG & Puzzle.... currently playing "Starhawk" and "Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning")
SCCM & MDT (it's my job)
Telephones (P.O.T.S. -- "Plain Old Telephone Systems")
Politics (all viewpoints, just remember Rule #3)
Photography (I'm just a casual, point-and-shoot-camera photographer from time-to-time. I mostly just appreciate the good photography of others)
Hockey (Washington Capitals)
Comedy & Humor (nothing is off limits, and I mean nothing)
Cats (nothing against dogs, but cats are my preference for companion animals)
Science (primarily Physics)
Television ("The Big Bang Theory", "Doctor Who", "Bones", Food Network)

Basic Information

Friends, Networking
Anthony Franca's +1's are the things they like, agree with, or want to recommend.
