  • Wed, 01:05: @Rafe Look closely at your article about Win XP...and then realize really it applies to all of us...lol
  • Wed, 02:12: Evidently Zacks is an informational source to be treated with great caution...in my opinion, of course.

Zacks [Apr. 9th, 2014|02:10 am]
[Tags|, , , , ]

Zacks is another one not to trust, at least as far as the software they tout according to the people who have used it. Which means the whole bit is suspect; this is unsurprising, considering their connection linkwise to ARN which had a link supposedly to them which was rated red on WoT; that's drive-by virus material. They apparently had good information at times but it seems all in all too risky. I'll have tools via Ameritrade and I do with IBD which I'm studying as well as the subscription to WSJ and the Morningstar breakdown available with Win 8. One of the things I actually need will be incredibly boring to study but invaluable, which is something as close in time for as long as possible on the NYSE. Runes of Magic is a thing of the past and unregretted, frankly.

"Facebook is rapidly extending its
influence from the personal world to
the corporate world, as employees
use these applications to get their
jobs done. At the same time, many
organizations are looking at the
nearly 500 million Facebook users as
an opportunity to conduct research,
execute targeted marketing, gather
product feedback, and increase
awareness. The end result is that
Facebook can help organizations
improve their bottom line."

Let me hastily attribute this to Firewalls for Dummies by Lawrence C. Miller, CISSP and I can't quote any more as various warnings point out. I can legally quote 2 sentences or 1 paragraph with attribution from any document unless it is classified. Quoting from a classified document without authorization generally involves a formal execution of (naturally) a dishonorable discharge, imprisonment for five years, and the fine was a quarter of a million dollars. Dishonorable discharge=no Social Security by the way, as if the prison sentence wouldn't do it (actually the crime that was named resulting in said punishment).

The reason I quote it is simple. It's frightening. That means that portions of our information are being exposed to Facebook by simple ignorance, and that Facebook is quite simply conducting business as usual, lassez faire. (Go for it boys, no rules here.) We are Big Brother. We can't blame it on someone else.

And now... [Apr. 1st, 2014|04:46 pm]

We have split the journals again. Even the display style is different. Mind you the last time I accessed this journal it was on the machine that was successfully hacked--on a drive by, mind you, and it was protected; it just ended up not even being able to boot and there was no recovery disk and...there was no irreplaceable data, me being me.

I even have, mind you, the site of a person I never even wanted to see mention of again on my password manager, which I find simply amazing. Oddly enough, I shan't go visit her. Although I feel no hostility toward her at all (something she couldn't understand) I also feel that she is forever nothing but a threat if I ever interact with her again. Goodbye again, Lady T.

  • Sat, 13:33: @IBD_GRich Yeah, the military is favoring 'smart' weapons...a hind-sighted strategy though: hackers. I believe I was their first one... 8]
  • Sat, 13:42: @herbgreenberg Your wording of the warning from Nu Skin reminds me strongly of others who have violated party line/fallen from disfavor.
