Step 3: Change all passwords that you use online as you walk through the next 21 steps.

While you search for business contacts and download forms to fill out in this recovery process, begin to change all your online passwords (this is assuming your computer wasn’t stolen!). Thieves may have acquired your information through an online password-protected account. Use new and different passwords for each account, and stop saving your passwords online or on your computer.

Every password should be unique!

Keeping the passwords stored separately from the computer is a lesson that I could learn.

XPfails – luggable – WORD2003 resuscitated

I’m gradually bringing LUGGABLE back from “hunka junk” to “functioning”. My plan to reformat was significantly delayed by DELL. In the interim, I’ve been trying to solve the problems. WORD2003 was locking up on startup. I repaired twice. Did everything else I could think of. Sacrificed a chicken. And, finally hit on the idea of nuking all the printers defined to XP. When PUBLISHER2003 locked up in the same way, that’s what clued me in. Nuking all the printers brought it back to life.

TECHNOLOGY: SNIPURL, like TINYURL, but with a twist

SnipURL – Snippetty snip snip with your long URLs!

Website URLs are long and difficult to remember. SnipURL allows you to “snip” your long URLs into small, friendly and persistent links for sharing and remembering. Free!

Successful. Your snipped url(s):

Original URL: 56 characters
Snipped URL: 24 characters (43% of original)

Interesting, you get a shot at claiming a short name forever, you can review (edit?) the underlying redirection, and see all your work over time.

RANT: Hey Governor Corzine … … still wanna hear about state cars? … (continued) …

You don’t? TOO BAD!

This morning 28 March at 0730 est on Route 296 milepost 47 … …

… … a white suv sg 24 301 … …

… zipped down at leisurely 80 (Your serf speed limit is 65)

… tailgating the poor peon in his way

… never left the left lane

(Do you teach them to do that, or is that a qualification for working for the state of nujerzee!?)

… was blissfully blazing down the left lane until impeded by yet another serf trying to get to work to pay the taxes. (How rude of them not to give way before their betters!)

I was especially aggrieved because there were two serfs receiving citations from your centurions on the road way that I passed.

Any way I am sure that the person was hurrying to get away from I assume trenton to protect and serve me.


P.S.: Dear reader, I don’t write these every day. Just when I ARRIVE early for work, particularly agitated aggravated and have to wait for my employer workstation to get online.

TECHNOLOGY: FEEDBLITZ fails again and misses some of my better work.
