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

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.

I have a new ActionTec MI424WR-GEN3I router from Frontier (thank you lightning strike), but forgot to ask for instruction manual.

I found this site which seems nice, but I wondered.

I am posting in hopes of helping others with their home routers and also seeking comments from those that might have tried this site:

This is baffling, but true.

Background: I have been a beekeeper for many years and understand about buying local honey versus imported "honey". I have studied GMOs and "natural" and nutrition. I have studied various sugars, monosaccharides and disaccharides such as glucose, sucrose, fructose, maltose, lactose, and galactose. I am also a fan and student of marketing (product, price, promotion, etc.).

I was in a bookstore this morning and noticed a new bakery kind of store next door so I went it.

The manager wanted me to have a free cookie. He was very proud of having natural goods and GMO free, but especially proud of having unrefined sugars. I was intrigued, so I asked him the source of his unrefined sugars. He said he did not know. I tried asking other ways, and he just did not know. Info: one form of sugar advertised as unrefined is concentrated grape juice.

They had some area for customers and I noticed a bottle of honey. I picked it up. Its label said it was from Brazil. Nothing against Brazil, but the "best" honey is local to wherever you are, and I was just amazed that a place that goes on about natural foods would buy honey from Brazil. He said he did not know anything about the honey except he just picked it up at the grocery store.

I was totally flabbergasted at that kind of marketing.

Sometimes you have to share confidential information about your business with others, but when those occasions arise, you should do all you can to protect it...

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 have been a customer of Fran at this location for 20 years. She is fantastic as a person and a barber. She specializes in men's haircuts and is very honest about what she can do well, and otherwise will recommend others. There is always a line "waiting for Fran" because people know quality when they experience it. My 5 star rating is for Fran!!!

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.

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.

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.
