I never thought it would happen to me

So, I was working away trying to recover some lost data for one of my students when my cell phone rang. It came up "Unknown" on the caller ID. I normally don't answer calls I can't identify, but I was irritated and frustrated and I answered it in hopes I'd have someone to launch a tirade against (I...

Break out your tissues because you might get a little misty after hearing my tale. I’ll tell it simply and quickly. But you’re sure to take a few things away from reading this post.

My Website is down. I mean crushed and down. Nothing shows up except for a few Greek characters and there's no way I can recover it. I know because I've tried, my hosting service has tried, and I'm not as technically adept as I'd like to be. Instead of wallowing in my despair - as I did enough...

It occurred to me at a conference in Louisville that security isn’t an issue specific to businesses. In fact, most businesses are less secure than large conferences because of one simple reason - the staff at conferences are trained to examine the credentials of every person at...

Hillary and Her Phones. Security Faux Pas or Laziness?

Hillary Clinton puzzles me. She seems really smart - in the same way her husband/president was smart. But maybe she’s missing that gene that gives some smart people common sense. It’s a theory that the more books you read - and the more degrees you have - the less common sense you...

Everyone freaks out because their home might not be secure. They have belongings inside that have value to a thief - and of course them. And keeping the actual property locked up and safe is the struggle they face on a regular basis.
