SERVICE: Google’s Gmail sending more “stuff” to spam

Friday, December 12, 2014

This week I had a lot more good stuff going to spam on Google.

I use “in:spam” to check weekly.

If you use Google’s Gmail, then you might want to check too.

I also use filters to ensure that “stuff” doesn’t get put in spam.

FWIW

How does a Windows bug go undetected for 19 years?

*** begin quote ***

By now you have likely heard of the 19-year-old Windows bug found by IBM late last week. If not, here’s the tl;dr version of it: IBM found a vulnerability in VBScript, Microsoft’s alternative to JavaScript which was introduced in Internet Explorer 3.0 and ran on Windows 95. Even today, the bug is impervious to the sandboxing features in Internet Explorer 11

“New” isn’t completely “new”?

Argh!

A Russian Plane Zaps U.S. Warship’s Missile Defense System

*** begin quote ***

An unarmed Russian bomber in April flew over a high-tech U.S. ship. A crew member pressed a button. Poof! No more missile defense system on the ship. No more radar. The ship became a defenseless floating coffin.

Then the plane flew over the blind ship a dozen times. Basically, it was “Nyah, nyah, nyah.”

This story got no play in American media.

So, we are sitting ducks again.

Anyone remember Pearl Harbor?

SOFTWARE: UPDATE MAC OSX Yosemite version 10.10 performance sucks

SOFTWARE: MAC OSX Yosemite version 10.10 performance sucks
2014-Oct-20

Get a ton of spinning lollypops every time I do a task switch or just at random times.

Guess this is how they force me to buy new hardware?

Argh!

2014-Oct-21

After several reboots, one reboot was different.

I had lollypops so bad made it unusable.

I force quit everything. Powered down.

Waited a half inning.

Power up.

It did something different.

A green ball with a progress bar.

A minute or two.

Logon screen presents.

Seems to be running better.

HARDWARE: I could have used this in 1964

The Street Sweep Saver is an alarm that rings 10 minutes before street sweeping begins on your block. The alarm is made with an electric bell controlled by a beagle bone black board. I designed a wooden casing that hides the electronics. Mount the Street Sweep Saver to your wall or place it on your kitchen table next to your daily cup of joe.

Argh!

A few decades too late.

I received so many parking tickets in my youth from alternate side of the street parking!

Most of them were written by the same cop. I think his name was Krupick.

I deserved most of them. 

But, several were written at 7:01 AM and I called the police station at 6:45 to complain.

It didn’t help. The deck was stacked.

That’s when I became anti-Gooferment!
