A trend that took hold in 2013 is putting overlays over the screen that will block your access to the page unless you give as a ransom your email address or access to your Facebook account. I treat my email address and access to my Facebook like a daughter in high school and to those sites I say.
I don’t know who you are. I don’t know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don’t have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my daughter go now, that’ll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don’t, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you.
I just received the fruits of my pre-order of a Kickstarter funded project and so far it’s pretty sweet. The ChargeCard feels solidly built, in the USA no less, is it the size of a standard credit card and the thickness of about three credit cards stacked together. I find it very handy to throw in my laptop bag and not have to worry about untangling a mess of cords when I want to connect my phone.
For reference this is the ChargeCard next to a standard business card.
I’ve been saying this for years but I probably wasn’t heard over the din of office noise.
A well put article on people who are thanking God after disasters.
Jaded Dan thinks imagine if this ingenuity was applied to less destructive efforts. Technology Dan thinks imagine if these guys had 3D printers.
Some screws, some wood and some Jameson.
