Sometimes, life opens us like a flower. Forget the analysis. You cannot get there from here.

If you MUST have Java on your computer, read this.
Java tries to install the terrible Ask Toolbar and other obnoxious junk — sorry, “sponsored software” — when you install it. Worse yet, Java bundles this junkware with security updates. This registry hack tells Java to never install that stuff.

Sometimes you need a little visit from the Permission Fairy. She is the one who lifts your vibration and helps you get over the hurdle. She must be invited.

It's possible, even easy (for me anyway) to say the word "billion" without emphasis akin to firing it out of a canon. So why can't TV news reporters do it?

Had some first hand experience with the Cryptolocker virus today. A client received an email, seemingly from ADP.com. Disregarding their uneasy suspicion about the email, they opened the attached .zip file and launched the attachment contained therein. Very soon there after they noticed they couldn't open their Excel and Word files. Egad. I found a ransom note file tucked into each folder in their Documents library. The Cryptolocker website was demanding $700 payment.

Listen. I want you to remember a few things:
1. Back up your files regularly
2. Back up your files often
3. Back up your files religiously 
4. Back up your files!

Watch out for your dark angels. And think about those for whom YOU might be their dark angel.
Here's to the dark angels who cause so much friction we have to wake up.

I love variety in technology. I like choices. But there is a cost for such. For one thing, there's more to possibly go wrong. Today some Android phone users updated their devices to KitKat version 4.2.2, after which their Exchange email stopped working. After a couple of hours of web searching and reading hundreds of forum posts, I found this article, which clearly defines the problem, and more importantly, the response which clearly states the solution. Thank you smart person. Now I can go to lunch!
Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) is a great way for companies to enable their workforce with mobile devices cheaply, mostly because the employees pay for their own devices and data plans. The downside is when things go wrong and the blessed devices stop working for one reason or another. Sometimes software is to blame, as in the case of Android 4.4 "Kitkat", which doesn't want to connect to Exchange via ActiveSync. Cue calls to the help desk... Ah, t...

Great advice. I'll tell you tell me your great stories, I'll tell you mine.
The thing is, you give power to the story you tell. They either limit you or encourage you. What story aren't you telling because of the one you are?

Sometimes being lost in the weeds is a valuable experience. Remember, it's temporary, not an existential crisis. Things are aligning, be patient. Trust.

My three thing philosophy: You are a child of the Universe, commit to honor your unique spark, what's meant for you is always meant for you.

Good food. Seems like a good price, too, except they almost always leave something out of my carry-out order. So I call them and they say, "come back and will give you the [fill-in-the-blank]". Right, I'm gonna drive an extra 15 minutes for my $4.00 felafel. This happens there A LOT.
