Online Security and using +LastPass!!

I've said before that I'm a huge proponent of +LastPass to ensure you are using secure online passwords. Last night, +Leo Laporte of +TWiT did a special episode talking about Lastpass and explaining all the features of it. 

If you are not using Lastpass or a similar type of password vault, PLEASE take a moment to watch this 30 minute special episode and protect yourself!!!!

I couldn't agree with +Fr. Robert Ballecer, SJ any more! Google is exactly the company needed to bring the right change and shake up needed for the consumers! 

Google... If you're listening... PLEASE come to the Southern New Jersey market with both +Google Fiber and Wireless! I'm so tired of being the red head step-child of Philadelphia, getting services well after the fact, marginal features of those services, and NO competition! South Jersey NEEDS YOU!!!
Google... please... Please..... PLEASE make this happen.

If there is an field in tech that needs disrupting, it's the telcos. From a fee structure that is both arcane and illogical, to anti-competitive behavior, to anti-consumer legislation, the telco and ISP biz needs a shake-up from a player than they CAN'T bury.
Google is reportedly considering running its own wireless network. Sources tell The Information that company executives have been discussing a plan to offer wireless service in areas where it's...

Day 1 of #fivedayquest - Work and Geekiness

+Mike Searle was kind enough to draft me into this photo/journal project, so when you all wonder why you have to suffer through this, you can thank him! It appears Mike isn't feeling well, so if you're the type that likes to kick someone while their down, now's the time to get him! :) 

This is my view from inside my office at work. I've posted pics in the past for #desktopfriday of my office, but this time you get to see exactly what I'm looking at / doing now. 

We'll move from right to left in the picture:

- On the monitor on the right you'll see the splendid +Mike Searle and the post where he drafted me into this project. Mike is a GREAT friend of mine and I have a hard time refusing a request from him. BTW... Did you know that Mike and his lovely wife +Angel Searle are adopting a baby!!! They have an adoption fund page up at +GoFundMe here:  Please contribute if you can! 

- If you weren't aware, my day job is being a Network Engineer. You can see from the middle monitor that I'm currently in the process of doing a +VMware upgrade on one of my ESXi Hosts. Ohh VMWare.. I definitely have a love / hate relationship with you! :) 

- The monitor on the left is currently turned off for this picture. There's some data on that monitor that I couldn't show

- On the TV in the upper left of the picture, I'm currently watching +Leo Laporte of The +TWiT Network interview the Father of the Internet +vint cerf. I told you this was work and geekiness! :) Seriously, not only am I a HUGE fan of the TWiT Network ( I keep the live stream of it on all day long in my office  ) but also find Vint to be spectacular!  

You might also notice all the sticky notes.. It's one of the things I do in order to help keep important information available to me quickly. 

If I'm lucky, I might get out of work somewhere around 6:00pm and then it's off to do more work... I'm also a Health Activist and I advocate on behalf of my son, and the 5,000,000 other people world wide living with #IBD  ( Inflammatory Bowel Disease ). I also have a Page here on Google+ called +The Crohns Colitis Effect and on other social media sites. You can also visit my website for it at

I believe this is where I'm supposed to plus mention someone else to join in on this fun. Hmmm... I think I'll pick +Boris Gorelik. Boris is an amazing photographer and also appreciates all the cool gadgets and technology.

+Mike Searle and +Angel Searle are so close to their terrific and wonderful goal... but they need our help! Please consider donating and if that isn't possible, please share so others have an opportunity to help :)
We've got just over a month to raise another $2,700.00 so we can bring baby home. Contributions may be made at I would be deeply touched if you would like to consider a donation. 

Regardless whether you can consider a contribution, I politely ask that you would please share this post.

Thank you so much for all your support!

We followed up with our adoption attorney today to identify the exact next steps for our adoption process. Everything is looking good so far, but one thing that I recognized is how little time we have to raise extra funds. Our attorney is being flexible and working with us... #adoption #baby #blog

+Mike Elgan said it best.... Yes, the anti-capitalist world is possible, as long as capitalists pay for it.
Morons picketing Kevin Rose's house demand $3 billion from the capitalists so they can create anti-capitalist communities.

According to this post, those protesting +Kevin Rose's house are anarchists who are demanding $3 billion from Google: " create autonomous, anti-capitalist, and anti-racist communities throughout the Bay Area and Northern California. In these communities, whether in San Francisco or in the woods, no one will ever have to pay rent and housing will be free. With this three billion from Google, we will solve the housing crisis in the Bay Area and prove to the world that an anarchist world is not only possible but in fact irrepressible."

Yes, the anti-capitalist world is possible, as long as capitalists pay for it. 

Gimme a break, people.

Please visit my Google+ Page - The Crohn's Colitis Effect

I think my tagline describes me pretty accurately... 

I'm a proud father of two great boys. Domenic is my oldest, who has Crohn's Colitis Disease ( see my Google+ Page for information on it ) and my youngest, Anthony. It might sound cliche to say they are my world, but saying anything less just wouldn't be truthful. 

I truly believe that I'm blessed... I not only have two wonderful boys, but I also have a career that I absolutely love! I've been a Network Engineer for a little over 15 years now and I wouldn't want to be doing anything else! My Father always told me that you know when you've made it when you get out of bed in the morning and can't wait to get to work... Well, that's me! I not only love the type of work I do, but I also love where I do it. I work for a private high school, St. Augustine Prep in Richland, N.J. The best part about my job is that everything I do there, I know I'm impacting the lives of our students, in a positive way, for years to come. 

Are you curious about what circles to put me in?? Well, anyone you want! :) Seriously, I post about a wide range of stuff. Anything and everything that comes to mind.
