Happy Monday

Happy Monday, haha.

Anyhow, not much been going on. Had a pile of doctor bills show up again, most are threats to turn me over to collections, which I guess will have to be since I'm still waiting to hear back from disability to see if I'm approved or not. I wish I had insurance, this is killing me. Speaking of docs, I do have my local doctor's appointment next week, I'm hoping he can increase my pain medicine since my back pain has been giving me more trouble lately than usual.

By the way I did put a paypal link on the right side of my page, I'm not usually one to beg for donations, but if you feel you could help a poor guy out it would be much appreciated and go toward medical bills and Internet bills so that I can keep this blog going at least, and I can put up an advertisement for your site if you want as well.

Well, thought I'd update things on this Monday afternoon. Not much else going on this week, other than surviving this nasty heat wave in the south.

So stay cool, and have a great week.

Terrorstorm Documentary




Came across this documentary by radio show host Alex Jones of Austin, Texas. It's very interesting to say the least, and has a lot of shocking claims. It was quite "educational" to put it one way.

About the documentary from Alex's own site:

This powerful documentary explores the mindset of the average brainwashed Westerner. It delves deeply in to
the systems of control which have been scientifically-crafted to imprison their minds and keep their eyes closed to the realities of the world around them.

Too much free time

I guess you could call it, 'too much free time', or you could call it boredom, I don't know, but being temporarily disabled due to heart attack in April, herniated disc in my back, and a pinched nerve in my upper back has given me lots of free time on my hands.

So along with this blog that I update from time to time, I also read quite a lot, and enjoy online games, while waiting to hear back from SSI to see if I am approved for disability or not. So it kinda got me thinking, about adding a new hobby to try out perhaps, I'm still undecided but was thinking of starting a podcast. Of course that's where I kinda draw a blank.

I'm not sure what topic to discuss, I could really do a range of topics from online gaming to state of our health care from a southern poor man's perspective. I guess there are many many podcasts of those such topics. But hey, what's one more?

Anyhow, just thinking 'out loud' so to speak. If anyone has any podcast software suggestions or getting started drop me a line in the comments section. Well, that's all for now, I'll keep ya updated on what I do decide.

New 'Storm' Virus, be careful!

Was looking through some security websites, checking up on the latest news and such and came across this article about a new "worm" called Storm. This thing sounds pretty nasty. Some information.


The misnamed Storm Worm isn't actually a worm; it's a bot, used to corral infected computers together into a network called a botnet, which can then be issued commands by a central criminal controller. One common command is to send vast amounts of spam.


Also

The Storm Worm is capable of launching DoS attacks, and has already been used for them. So the huge rise in the malware's spread may mean that its creator is getting ready to expand his revenue stream and rent out his botnet for powerful DoS attacks.


You can find the complete article here at
Networkworld.com


So make sure your virus scanners and adware software are updated and use firefox in my opinion. Internet explorer usage is just a step away from reformatting and reinstalling your system in my opinion.

Be careful asking for raise!

Come across the bit of odd news, although a bit funny in nature, it did lead to tragic events. This story makes one think twice about asking for a raise at work. And strangley enough, this all takes place in my home state.

The headlines: Boss Killed Employees After They Asked For Raise

Police say a business owner who was having financial problems shot and killed two of his employees after they asked him for a raise.




So next time you ask your boss for a raise.... Be careful. haha
