If you're running TendMicro's antivirus solution on Windows, update it asap!! It runs a localhost web service that is very vulnerable to attacks.

Upgrading my desktop from Windows 7 to 10. Let's hope I didn't just give myself the gift of rebuilding my system.

Yesterday morning I made a purchase at Amazon. In the afternoon, I signed up with +Paribus . This morning I got an Email from Paribus that they found a $12 price drop on what I ordered yesterday. They get a small piece of that refund (25%) which lowers as you refer people to the site. So if a few people want to sign up using my link, I'd be grateful. :) https://paribus.co/i/T7YzdJ
 
The Paribus BETA is now live. Check it out at paribus.co

Sounds interesting, though you might want to check out their privacy policies. +Paribus can use All information it gathers about you. So all your emails and whatever other forms of input they can get from you. They use this information for their service but also to sell you. They have provisos for ads, etc... You are the product without knowing it. The 25% they take is the least beneficial thing they get from you.
And remember this company gets access to All your emails.
I didn't see a peep in their "privacy" policy about protecting end users. Just how they are going to use the data they collect on you to make a lot of money.

Hyundai relented. They're going to cover the expense of getting our Tucson back to Colorado. Thanks to everyone re-sharing our story!

Yeah, looks like we may need to eat about $270 on our repayment request. The rep who advised us to get a one-way rental never wrote in his notes how he advised us (ie, whether to get a one-way or two-way rental) so unless a recording of our call shows up it's our word against his that he advised us to get a more expensive one-way rental. Their policy, of course, is to never advise a one-way rental because it's so much more expensive.

Well, +Hyundai Worldwide / +Hyundai USA are adamantly refusing to pay 100% of our expenses, yet they're willing to accept responsibility for spark plugs sized for a Santa Fe being installed in my Tucson when I wasn't even due for new plugs. So they're covering a $4200 motor and about $1400 worth of expenses, but fusing to cover an additional $1000 in expenses that THEY ADVISED us to incur, or verbally promised on the phone several times.

If you were faced with a $1,000 bill against a $6,600 charge, would you accept it and pay it, or fight for it when you don't believe any of this was your own fault in the first place?
Our last attempt to resolve the remaining two items that Hyundai is refusing to reimburse has fallen on deaf ears. I've escalated it to the Executive...

"Land of Confusion" by +Disturbed will forever be my favorite cover, but their rendition of "The Sound of Silence" on the Immortalized album is pretty freakin' great.

Wow, Raspberry Pi made a much smaller, leaner $5 version. Why in the world they haven't incorporated wifi and/or bluetooth on these yet is baffling, though.
Now you have no excuse to get your Raspberry Pi on.

Well, it is 5 bucks.  I mean if you made a badass christmas tree lighting controller, you wouldn't need the 'nets and it's well worth the 5 bucks  :)

We had uboxes shipped here from California and the staff here have been nothing but pleasant and professional. We rented a truck from them to take stuff from the uboxes to our apartment and the rental process was quick and painless.

Very friendly staff, but our breakfast order got "lost in the computer" and I've been waiting over forty minutes with two little kids, no refills offered or anything.
