This is a snippet from an email I sent years ago when I was stuggling to connect a computer to my Lacie WirelessSpace

I am adding "afp" to this thread to help me find it, because I have trouble searching for it

Re: Mavericks - error code -8084 when copying files to desktop from remote servers
Dec 23, 2013 7:02 AM (in response to firebook23)
I had the same problem...I think I solved it...You have to change the server address from "smb" to "cifs" and that's it....
For example if your server address is:
          smb://ummsnas01/MarkLab$
Change it to:
          cifs://ummsnas01/MarkLab$
 
That's it!!
 
Hopefully it works now for you too!!

Lorrie Faith Cranor studied thousands of real passwords to figure out the surprising, very common mistakes that users — and secured sites — make to compromise security. And how, you may ask, did she study thousands of real passwords without compromising the security of any users? That's a story in itself. It's secret data worth knowing, especially if your password is 123456 ...

I love the KCD cartoon.

Good research, but unfortunately, she struggles as a presenter.

Here is a video explaining GSM versus CDMA.  Not technically, but from a consumer viewpoint:

Graphene

I learned about late.  If you are tech, and want to stay up, I suggest you read about it.

There are actually several methods you can use to save Google+ posts for later reading. Which method you choose will mostly depend on your own personal preferences and requirements. We'll review them all here.

Recent unplanned welding project.

The heat shield on one of my catalytic converters was loose and making an awful noise.  Inspection showed both welds on one side had come loose.

After a lot of prep, I made an awful looking weld of maybe four tacks which will hold long enough.  Partial excuse:  hard to weld upward with very little room to move.

Having a welder does not make me a good weldor.  Interesting thing about having one.  They can fix things up even if I am not well skilled.

Sometimes people ask me if I can weld something for them.  I ask:  if my weld fails, could it cause physical injury to somebody, or serious financial loss

I watched the below video this morning.  Its points are two:  the current GPS system does not use the traditional prime meridian location as 0 degrees, and lat/long coordinates are not constant over time.  

The second one can be significant for surveyors (although I assume they already know this and don't use lat/lon for this reason) and other folks that specify locations in ways intended to be valid for decades.  It means that your street address combined with the "front fence post" is (assuming nobody moves ther fence post) a more long term consistent method of location than GPS.

Tech--data networking (TCP/IP, Ethernet)

I subscribed to Packet Pushers podcast months ago.

If you are interested in data networking, I recommend it.  You can find it on iTunes and Google Play.

For Google Users (which is most of us):  http://www.labnol.org/internet/important-google-urls/28428/
Which website has access to my Google account? What does Google know about me? Where can I see ads that I've clicked on Google search?

The office, and all the personnel, but especially Richard and Rebecca are wonderful. Not only for getting your eyesight right, but also in all the business and personal ways. I highly recommend them.

This is a wonderful, wonderful restaurant. It is all good, but what makes it wonderful is the owners: Cathy and Bill Fowler. I have literally eaten there hundreds of times over he past 5 years or so and have never had a bad experience. If I ever had a questionable experience, they would have made it right. I strongly recommend this restaurant.

This place has A+ service among pharmacies. I have not had particularly bad service from other pharmacies so I can't say they are the best, but want to say that I am delighted every time I dialogue with them. One thing that does distinguish them is it is easy enough to talk to an actual person when calling, and they will call back.

If you live in North Dallas, or Rockwall, or Wylie, or Garland, and need chain saws, Stihl products, Echo, etc. Then this is the only place to go. Great products, great service, great people.. They don't deceive you into thinking you need things you don't. If your bar has another season on it, they will tell you.
