Hey.

Spent some time on the hill out back sawing off a few of the snags that keep popping back up from the dang garbage trees. Can't remember what they're called, but if they aren't huisache trees they're just as bad. Oh....just called Neighbor Jo Ann --- they're hackberry trees, and the little snags will come up overnight almost and just make a hell of a mess. No WAY you can cut 'em with a weedeater, so I keep having to get out there with a saw and ax. If I ever get 'em all cut down low enough to use the weedeater before they get so big, though, I'll have 'em beat.

Oh, well....

I'm not really all that nervous about it, BayleeBug. Just don't really want to do it.

...and now I'm thinking I want to go to the grocery to pick up some coconut oil for my legs and some fresh corn and NUTS for my belly.

Later....

Good afternoon!

Doc, when I was in school, as well as later, living downtown without a car, I would go for months at a time without driving. I never felt uncomfortable my first time behind the wheel again. So I agree that you will feel fine once you get back to doing it. Just start out on an easy run - no rush hour traffic or long routes. And be glad that you don't have to drive on black ice or with blowing s*** coming at you like an exploding universe.

WR, do you always get to your appointments by driving, or do you ever fly?

Good morning Doc,

As long as the rain only made noise on the roof you're fine. Its when it comes through that you worry!

As to driving. Go when you want and don't force yourself. I'm sure after a few drives you will feel OK back behind the wheel. Being apprehensive just means you are a conscientious driver, and that is a GOOD thing!

Good morning. Got a really good night's sleep. Maybe things'll look better today.

Man, it DID do some storming sometime last night --- FLOODS of rain with some wind and a few boomers. Sure sounds good on my 30-year-old metal roof.

Hope it's a great day for everyone.

Happy Monday! 53 degrees this morning.

mnjrfan - the problem with Antivirus software is twofold:

1) it's reactionary and only effective if the virus software vendors are aware of the virus'

2) (more importantly) - virus software only detects about 30% of the viruses.

The softball team celebrated their 6 seniors before the game but "laid an egg" during the game yesterday afternoon losing 9-6 to UL-Monroe.

Today they host #10 ranked Florida State.

Off to start the day.

Have a great day all!

Morning all!

I do continue to use Win XP (home) sp3 on my machines. It works great, even though it's in its golden years now. Comcast is the carrier out here, so I get Comcast's version of Norton Security Suite for free. I would think it's nothing like the 'real' thing, but neither machine has ever gotten a virus, so I'm good. Once this setup reaches it's end though, lets just say that it's on my bucket list to give the Apple a try-out.

I still occasionally get updates from Microsoft, so I'm assuming they're still doing a little bit to keep that boat afloat. Appreciate your warnings though!

Have a great day everyone! Later

BayleeBug, Idunno about the weigh-in. I keep trying to get below 260 and I just can't seem to make it. I'll just wait for that and celebrate. I'm trying hard.

Roberta, I've ordered a supply of coconut oil, but I think I'll get an interim supply at the grocery tomorrow.

Incidentally, so far I've only driven a few blocks to Exxon to get some gas for the lawnmower. Tomorrow I THINK I can make myself drive to the grocery store. Dunno. Much as I thought I WANTED to drive, now I just don't feel up to it most of the time. Gotta get moving, though. I just spend entirely too much time just sitting and feeling sorry for myself. Not a good thing.

"Tahitian princess," huh? Hmmmmmm.. LOL LOL LOL, etc.

Anyway, I sure do love you all... good night.

Good evening! We had friends visiting for the weekend, so I was too busy to check in. We saw a play and a concert, and ate too much!

Doc, are you planning on doing a weekly weigh-in again? And how was the driving adventure?

What's with FOF comments? I'm getting three of everything FOF sends you. Is this on purpose or does FOF's computer need some fine tuning. Seems a long time ago I had the same problem and it had to be remedied.

Had the flu the last three days and slept it off from 4 P.M. Thursday to 6 A.M Friday then to urgent care and from 11 A.M until 7:30 A. M. Saturday I slept. Today only 2 hours, but it's only 3 P.M. I'm going to try and stay awake until my son and girlfriend get back from LA tonight.

Happy Sunday! 64 degrees and wet this morning. due to more rain received last night. I got a walk in and the front lawn mowed and fertilized just before it started.

GSU Softball senior day and game at noon today.

As long as an Win XP PC doesn't connect to the Internet it's usually pretty safe.

Oh, well...let it be known I don't even really know what "IT" is, so I'm out of that one. My motto is "If the mosheen works, it's good enough for me."

LOL LOL LOL, etc.

Only thing I'll say is I like my apples off of TREES!

LOL LOL LOL, etc.

Ohboy, ever since my heart adventure, I've had what my doctors call "orange peel skin" on both legs, but more so on the right. ITCH is just constant! Monday I'm going to the clinic at the diabetes center and see if they can come up with some help. If not I'll have to see if I can track down my old dermatologist. Last I heard, though, he might have been headed for the the Gray Bar Hotel. Strange how many doctors are some sort of sex freaks, isn't it?

Oh, well....

Good afternoon Doc,

Hope the grocery run was a success. In that I mean you got there and back safe, AND had a good time!

GR - I completely agree that Apple has not vetted its software nearly well enough. It had less than ten percent of the market for years, so hackers never really tried to crack it that much. With the plethora of iPhones and such, combined with Apple pay and the other such apps, all rich targets, I expect that to change. Will watch, wait and see how really secure they are.

To its credit, since XP SP2, Microsoft has been trying. Yes it still has vulnerabilities, but they hunt down and patch what they can. Its what we don't know that hurts us!

I too have been in the IT field for a while, but as more of a Jack of all trades with small companies.

Happy Saturday! 63 degrees and wet this morning. We had a raucous storm about 5:00 am this morning with rain, and thunder and lightning. Fun times!

I was able to sleep in some after getting up several times due to the storms in our area. I was up at 7:00 am or so to turn off the PCs due to the electrical storm.

It was a great day for softball (and any other outdoor activity) yesterday. The GSU softball team won both games yesterday (rescheduled from today's original schedule) and will resume the three game series tomorrow at noon for senior day.

Nothing much planned for today so we'll actually get a little bit of a weekend.

mnjrfan - If you plan to remain on a PC platform you likely should discontinue using a Windows XP product, especially if this is the PC you use to connect to the Internet. Microsoft discontinued support and internal research and development earlier this year so you are quite vulnerable and there is a segment of hackers that troll for PCs running those operating systems.

Dick - As an IT Professional who's been in the industry for a long time, and one who employs a rather large IT Security staff and work with others who also do, I will counter one of your comments suggesting "Apple has been reasonably free of attacks in the past."

In full disclosure, I am not currently and have never been, a Microsoft Corporation employee, a subsidiary, or reseller of their products.

I agree "Microsoft is by far the largest platform out there (and)
(c)riminals (indeed do) always attack the biggest as it has the most targets." Apple is far from being "reasonably free of attacks;" the attacks may likely occur less often, but when they occur, aren't as publicized.

I will posit that Microsoft is likely more of a target because consumers, government agencies (from small city/municipal to federal) and many mid to large (non-government) businesses use Microsoft products, especially their (desktop and server) operating system(s).

While Microsoft certainly has historically operated on a "good enough to ship" (their software) and we'll (Microsoft) patch it later, it's more rewarding for hackers to attack something when they can potentially get a lot of press/media attention and make a larger impact on the hack. I certainly believe this approach is costly to private and government consumers but just isn't captured as part of direct software licensing costs.

To me, the "jury is still out" on whether Apple products are written more securely than Microsoft products. Reports I have read suggest there is both insufficient comparison data while others indicate vulnerabilities are near equal for both Microsoft and Apple. Again, it's about having a larger target from which hackers can gain notoriety and recognition among their peers.

Off to continue the day.

Have a great day all!

Good morning doc!

I've seen Ubuntu, but after starting out on MS-DOS, then working with the Unix command structure in the late 80's, and then Unix on a windows based platform, I'm still content to play on my win xp home setup. They're still hanging in there, even though many think I should move on. No thanks. I will move on, but it'll be the apple machine next time.

Have a great weekend all! Later

Good afternoon Doc,

Microsoft is by far the largest platform out there. Criminals always attack the biggest as it has the most targets. That is why Apple has been reasonably free of attacks in the past. Now with so many iPads and phones, that is now getting more attention from criminals too. Most do not use Ubuntu, so the criminals have no interest in targeting the users as it has so little return for the effort.

I do hope you have a marvelous time at the store. Enjoy the freedom of getting yourself there and home! Stay out of the cookie isle!

Good morning. Finally got a full night's sleep...just by sheer determination NOT to get up until I did. lol

Incidentally, Ubuntu is free for the taking to ANYone and it isn't difficult to download and burn to disc, but if any of you either don't have time or don't want to go to the trouble to learn to do this, I can always just burn you a copy of the disc I made and send it to you. Just message me with your address and I'll get a copy in the mail within a few days. I think right now I'm fresh out of blank discs.

Oh, and the Ubuntu I'm using is 14.04.2, so it isn't the "very latest," just really close to it --- and about as good as it gets, anyway. (Seems "they" march out a newer version about every ten days on this stuff.)

But I'm serious --- this is a totally FREE and surprisingly easy and reliable OS --- and "they" say it's pretty much immune to viruses, etc.

Glad to "see" you here. Me, I GOTTA get myself to the grocery store....DRIVING for the first time!

LOL LOL LOL, etc.

Happy Friday! 48 degrees this morning.

Great stuff Doc - I have also heard great things about Ubuntu; I just don't have time to learn a new OS.

We wound up have a "two-fer" last night. We visited with the Georgia State folks for a bit and then met our daughter and her boyfriend (at the same place) for dinner at Gordon Biersch. We had a wonderful time.

I will be leaving early this morning for a 9:00 am meeting and another at 11:00am. I'm off for the afternoon to call a GSU doubleheader against UL-Monroe (moved to today because of forecasted rain tomorrow.

Off to start the day.

Ohboy! By the time I got up, The Mama had already called and rescheduled her doctor visit for 3:45 this afternoon....right in the big middle of the WORST traffic --- both ways!

Oh, well.

Maybe Kimbu will take her. I just do NOT want to do my first driving since January right in the middle of the worst San Antonio city traffic. The ONLY worst cities I've ever driven in are Hotlanta, Georgia, and HOUSEton, Texas. The only difference here is that other drivers seem INTENT upon killing somebody!

Spent most of yesterday and half the night working on Neighbor Janie's 'puter. Finally decided to roll it back to Windows XP Pro, which was a good move. Now the sound works as does everything else. Microsoft has pulled the plug on Win XP, but it STILL works well in older machines, and it's really best to just stick with it.

Speaking of XP, Microsoft is now pulling out on Windows 7, doing their BEST to forget the total debacle of Windows 8, completely SKIPPING Windows 9, and pushing and GIVING AWAY the early edition(s) of Windows 10 in an effort to lure folks into eventually paying the "big money" for it.

Not none of ME! I have now discovered Ubuntu, and just as SOON as I'm more comfortable with it, I will probably have it on all of my own computers.

Why on earth would one jump through all the Microsoft hoops when Ubuntu works better and is FREE!

Speaking of FREE, I just learned that Kimbu (Baby Dotter) is going to drive her mother to see the pain meds doctor at 3:45.

Hot-DIGGETY!
