Networking

Tmobile Vs. Sprint

Well the great thing about my provider "Ting" I can swap carriers. So I personally used to have Sprint. Now I have a GSM 'Tmobile" provider. And let me just say, "They're not exactly the most powerful network."

Sprint was better.

What's more interesting is that on my phone I can swap in another SIM card from a burner phone. and self activate another SIM... as in, if I go over sea... I can buy a calling card real quick and  BLAMO  not pay international rates.

First Commercial Internet Domain Name Registered (1985)

A domain name is an address of a computer, organization, or other entity on a network, such as the Internet, that follows TCP/IP communications protocol. Domain names must be unique on the Internet and must be assigned by a registrar accredited by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. They typically include the type and name of an organization and identify the specific host server at the address. The first commercial Internet domain name was registered in 1985. What was it?

Raymond Tomlinson "Mr. @"

Raymond Tomlinson - The man who put the "@" symbol in email addresses.

Has gone over to the other side, at the ripe age of 74.

"Raymond Tomlinson, the computer programmer who in 1971 invented email as it is known today and in the process transformed the “at” sign — @ — from a sparely used price symbol to a permanent fixture in the lives of millions of computer users around the world, died on Saturday at his home in Lincoln, Mass. He was 74.

His daughter Brooke Tomlinson McKenzie confirmed the death but said that the cause had not been determined.

In the late 1960s and early 1970s Mr. Tomlinson was working at a research and development company, Bolt, Beranek and Newman, on projects for the Arpanet, a forerunner of the Internet that was created for the Defense Department. At the time, the company had developed a messaging program, Sndmsg, that allowed multiple users of a time-share computer to send messages to one another. But it was a closed system, limited to users of a single computer."

BOOTMGR -

If you don't know what the BOOTMGR is. It's what manages all the boot processes on your operating system.  It also includes your choices of operating systems. As I'm sure most of you all are dual or triple booting your operating systems?

Anywho. When you encrypt this. Apparently you're screwed when the BOOTMGR fails. I mean, yeah, I could access my data. But it was requiring my password that, it had to have been correct. It didn't open up my data.

Which is why, all this digital data. Really means a whole lotta nothing... Get out and do more people.

It feels great to wipe your operating system. and start fresh. Who needs data?

And don't tell me your "Mac" or "Linux" won't fail.  I've recovered enough data from these devices. To know they fail often enough.
Also, don't tell me your "Safari" crashes or fails... If you're not sure what an operating system is over a web browser. You shouldn't be using a computer.

Everything is a literal failure in America. We have designed identity theft. That's a fact.

See that Billboard? It might see you too!

But, he added, the company was using the same data that mobile advertisers have been using for years, and showing certain ads to a specific group of consumers was not a new idea. “It’s easy to forget that we’re just tapping into an existing data ecosystem,” he said.

In many ways, billboards are still stuck in the old-media world, where companies tried to determine how many people saw billboards by counting the cars that drove by. But in recent years, billboard companies have made more of an effort to step into the digital age. Some billboards, for example, have been equipped with small cameras that collect information about the people walking by. Clear Channel Outdoor’s move is yet another attempt to modernize billboards and enable the kind of audience measurements that advertisers have come to expect.

“People have no idea that they’re being tracked and targeted,” said Jeffrey Chester, executive director of the Center for Digital Democracy. “It is incredibly creepy, and it’s the most recent intrusion into our privacy.”
