More than eighty years ago, a North Carolina family of nine posed for a Christmas portrait. Two weeks later, all but one of them had been shot dead. (See the portrait here.)  Thanks to Elephant Micah and Sarah Bryan for...

Chrome to start auto censoring flash content Sept 1st.

Oh hooray, now Chrome can be almost as annoying as Firefox when browsing flash heavy sites. ;')

In related faux news, Microsoft one upped the announcement by announcing Windows 10 would start self destructing automatically by the end of August whenever it was connected to any service or site not Microsoft security approved. A spokesman was misquoted as saying "This is the kind of security our customers have come to expect from Microsoft."

Story
Tagline
I enjoy listening to podcasts (Technology, History, Comedy, True Crime, True Stories). I also like to watch movies and documentaries on Netflix and on Television. Learning new things and interesting facts.
Introduction
I AM #Canadian, living just on the outskirts of #Fredericton, the capital city of New Brunswick. I lived in Canada all my life and am proud of this great country. I am married, my wife and I have no kids. Our fur baby (our dog) who's name was Max passed away on December 2,2014. He was a Tibetan Terrier who himself had been a Type 1 Diabetic since September of 2011. I am good at a lot of things. I'm your man if you have computer and tech related questions. If I don't know the answer I will do the research to find you an answer. I grew up in the country in the small town called The Village of Gagetown.

I was born in a close nit military environment in the Town or Oromocto, where my father served in the Canadian Armed Forces for 25 years. I'm proud to call myself an Army Brat. Shortly after graduating from High School I attended Business College after which I was hired and have been working the UPS (United Parcel Service) in the Brokerage Rating Department since July 1997.

Married, #Canadian, #UPSer, #UPS, #SocialMedia, #Technology, #Movies, #DogPerson. I enjoy listening to podcasts, watching #Netflix, listening to music.
Bragging rights
Ability to learn new things quickly and with little supervision. Ability to teach myself how to use new technology or software. I've helped train co-workers in small groups on how to use new software involved in doing our job on a daily basis.
