Yet another reason to hate Microsoft(for their part in assuming everyone is ignorant) and now a good reason to bark at Netflix for being jerks and elitists.

Microsoft made the news last week when it announced that its Edge Web browser could deliver a better Netflix streaming experience than the other three most popular browsers. On Windows 10, Edge is the only one that can play Netflix's video streams — which are encumbered with Digital Restrictions ...

And here we are again....1&1 simply does not understand how email works.

Their prime method of detection?

'We detected this because at least ten receiving server systems rejected the messages as spam."

Note, says nothing at all about me actually sending the spam. Only that it's been rejected. That should speak volumes about the real problem but 1&1 doesn't seem to know how easy it is to setup an email server any use ANY email address as a 'return' address.....sigh. especially one that's been around for over 15 years.....

Absolutely, I trust my printer. Most of the time I can't connect to it, so it really can't do much to me.

Introduction

You would think that replacing a waterpump on a 1974 Dodge Charger SE would have nothing to do with my Technical Skills but you would be surprised.

I love cars. Specifically older Mopars and recently, Volvos. Owning a 1974 Dodge Charger SE as a first car was quite the experience. So was sitting beside my brother on the radiator support and changing the waterpump! Still, doing things by my own hands and making changes to improve something was a pure expression of creativity and efficiency.

When I was younger, I was fascinated by how things worked. I once owned one of those original ‘Mickey Mouse’ watches. One day it stopped working, so I took it apart. I never got it back together again but that was probably the start of my curiosity in technology.

I learned where my values were at a young age. Being creative was certainly one of them. Building a go kart, based on Mark Hamil’s movie Corvette Summer, showcased both my love of all things mechanical and the ability to express myself by re-creating a hoodscoop!

In later years and with real cars, I furthered that expression with my hands-on approach as well as tweaking things for both more power and efficiency. The idea of integrating modern technology into older cars stuck with me and continues to do so. From simply installing radios to using old cell phones as a screen to read OBD II computer output from newer vehicle, I never stopped learning and evolving.

When I turned to the IT Industry as a profession, my hobby became a fully developed learning machine. I applied my enthusiasm without limit and when I graduated with a 95% average from my CDI Networking course, I was thrilled and in my element.

Working with others also confirms my passion for technology:

“Don was a key member of my deployment team. he provided leadership and technical skills beyond what was expected of him. he quickly became my primary support technician for the rest of my 25 person team. I would happily work with him again.”

  • Kelly Davis

“Don's dedication to IT support is clearly evident whether is was at Mercer or my home when timely repair and - or troubleshooting was required. He was always well briefed on the latest trends, products and virus protection and ensured the job was done right. I would highly recommend Don to any individual or company.”

Service was very nice and professional. Looking forward to seeing what they can do when I need my winter tires in 5 months :)

First time I went there, was treated respectfully and very well. Very honest and open guys there. While I'm never looking forward to repairs, I won't mind them as much while going here :)

I have been in South Korea for two years and only recently learned about this place. Being a self-avowed metatarian, this place rocked my world! I was seriously impressed with the offerings and the courtesy with which it was delivered too! 7 different types of meat, all of them high-quality and very tasty! Out of the 7, the pork was my least favourite. That being said, it still beats pork anywhere else in Korea :) I rated the cost as expensive but one must keep in mind a number of things. First, the place is in Itaewon. Not the cheapest location to have a restaurant. Second, beef is very expensive here (in which case the price is only moderate compared to what you can eat). Normally how you can really tell what the quality of a restaurant is, is by seeing how you feel later/the next day. I believe the meat was of a quality I have never had before. Not only did I feel extremely good, that lasted for the entire next day and slowly faded the day after. While I have never done drugs, this is about the closest I can say to have been on an 'energy high' from the nutrients gained from eating here. Oh if only I could afford to do this more regularly! About the only downside wold be the music. They played it just a bit too loud. Being Itaewon, I suspect they are heavily influenced by the 100s of other clubs but really should stick to the status quo when being a restaurant. Background noise only please.
