Twitter Bots Need to be Stopped 1

Twitter Bots Need to be Stopped

I use Twitter a lot. I wanted to stay informed, especially from friends. I decided to port all direct messages to my cell phone. That way I didn’t have to install a Twitter client. At first that was great – I could respond to people I need to talk to. That has all changed with the Twitterbot. Now, if I “Follow” the wrong person, I get a direct message: Thanks for following me. I hope to talk to you, but in the meantime: here is a free gift hllp://i.am.spamming/you. I am not impressed – In fact, I am downright annoyed. You want to get unfollowed by me? Then all you have to do is send me a bot like that. I’ll unfollow you in a heartbeat. I don’t mind @replies. But the direct replies are the ones that go to the cell phone too. I am glad someone...

Avoid Swine Flu – Clean Your Keyboard / Mouse 0

Avoid Swine Flu – Clean Your Keyboard / Mouse

*NOTE* There are some that think Swine Flu comes from contact with pigs. The virus – H1N1 – has nothing to do with animals. It is a form of influenza that is circulating. Other variants in the past: Russian Flu (H2N2) Spanish Flu and bird Flu (H5N1). It’s a fact – you have more germs on your computer keyboard and mouse than on your household toilet. We’re talking thousands of germs as oppose to only a few from a toilet. So when it comes to Swine Flu, do we have to worry about cleaning these items? It is spring cleaning for me anyway – I reorganize and take care of items that I don’t normally touch on a weekly basis. Of course, with planning on moving, that also adds to the fun. I keep my keyboard pretty clean. A can of air to blast out any dust, food...

LIVE Show 12-08-08

The LIVE Show was only an hour last night. It seems my cough understands when it’s time to work as I didn’t do it as much as I expected. I did have my hand on the mute button for those times I couldn’t help it. Even though the show was only an hour, we had a pretty good one. PCNovice and Husker_Fan were in the chatroom. I started out the show with a small rant on uStream. We then talked about phones, testing out tech equipment before giving it as gifts, the MicroYugo drama and a lot more.

Finally, in hour #2 we found out that Jerry Yang, CEO of Yahoo! has decided to step down. We talked about who the successor should be. Larry Ellison from Oracle was suggested. I think the best person for the role is Martin Sargent. He has a lot of contacts and can make Yugo a young company again. All this and a lot more on the LIVE Show. Hour 1
