#MeToo

I’ll open by underscoring this is my personal opinion.

I’ve read and watched a number of individuals come forward about being sexually harassed in the past — and I think that’s a great travesty that people would take advantage of another based on their position, social status, wealth, or power — but let’s wake up here… that is how the world has operated (and we’ve all turned blind eyes for years, decades, millenniums), so let’s ratchet down the (false) indignation and work for a newer world order where harassment is a thing of the past.

I see this as an issue were we need not only looks at who did what — but when it was done.

Yes, the standards 10, 20, 30, 40, 50… years ago were very different than it is today.  And the way things were done might be appalling by today’s standards, but none the less that’s how they were done and we all knew it (don’t even try to pretend you thought all those stories of the “casting couch” and “sexitaries” was just locker-room banter… you knew it was true, and simply chose to do nothing about it).

Here on MLK day I’ve decided to share my thoughts — though let’s not pretend like MLK was a saint… he too was a sinner. He too (seemingly) had issues with equal rights for all (you didn’t hear him mention women, you didn’t hear him mention races other than white and black, you didn’t hear him mention gays).  The one thing Dr King did do: he opened up dialog which started to move this country forward from a long period of stagnation.

My feeling is actions which happened many years ago need to be looked at in the light of the prevailing time… those people need to be admonished at minimum, but if they didn’t cross what was the norm at the time that needs to be the end of it.  We just need to make sure that we update our image of the past and those personalities to include that they failed to treat everyone with the respect they deserved, and failed to take a stand to end harassment.

However, when similar things are happening now, or within the past several years — that’s different.  Clearly these events are transgressions that go far beyond the accepted norms.  Not only do we need to admonish these individuals, but we need to take action to insure that they and the industries they are in change.  That change needs to occur sooner, not later.

Should they be fired — yes — if they don’t have the courage and integrity to resign.

But should individuals who committed transgressions many, many years back when times were different be fired — that’s a little more complex; we need to look at the individual now, appraise what changes have been made to their life, and if they are still that same person.  If they are — then they’re out; however, if they’ve made change… we can give them a little time under the microscope before we make our final decision.

I’m all for zero tolerance, but zero tolerance never seems to be that (just check when the local school’s sports hero crosses the zero tolerance line, there always seems to be tolerance for at least a second chance — so something else we need to be honest with ourselves about — rarely do we really have zero tolerance, it’s just a catch phrase).

Personally I abhor harassment of any kind, I abhor those who feel they are better than others and can get away with it, I abhor those who help hide it and punish the victims… but this is a problem where we have to start to resolve today, and not get carried away with witch-hunt after witch-hunt of “dark” figures from out past.

comparitech – Security Guide

I received a contact from an individual who informed me of a broken link on my Products page, thank-you.

They also recommended I considered linking to a site on that page.  I didn’t really feel it was an appropriate link for my Products page, but I did think it fit nicely into my Sites page.

In particular he pointed out The jargon-free guide to computer and internet security and I felt it did a pretty descent job explaining security in terms most anyone should be able to understand.

Please keep in mind, that I don’t necessarily endorse of agree with all the site’s content, I only provide a link to it so that readers of my BLOG have available additional information which they may find interesting and useful.

Again, THANKS — I appreciate everyone who helps me make my BLOG better…

 

NOTE: The domain for the email linked back to this site, so I am aware that the request was not completely without a vested interest.

SugarSync Epic Failure

Today I decided I would test out SugarSync, they offer 5GB (not much by today’s standards) free cloud storage when you sign up through the Windows 10 App.

I signed up, downloaded the PC sync app, and got both the welcome as well as the verify email address email.

I clicked on the verify link — and below I what I got.  Just to be sure it wasn’t something pathological about Edge, I tried Chrome, FireFox, and Opera multiple times (I also tried a few more browsers, and clearly it’s no my network connection or DNS resolution — since I get an error from SugarSync).  To add insult to injury, there’s absolutely no way I could find to report this issue to them (other than write them a letter and send it via the US Postal Service).

Great way to build confidence in your product SugarSync — great way to make me want to shell out money…

FORGET IT!!!

You can never undo damage to your reputation like this.  My recommendation, close up shop — there are many choices in the cloud storage space, and they actually work.

Moto g4+ and g5+

moto_g4+_g5+

The Moto G5+ is the current version of the Moto G line; but how does it stack up against it’s predecessor the Moto G4+…

The differences…

The G5+ has a 5.20 inch display, a 2GHz octa-core processor, and ships with Android 7.0 (there are various models with different RAM and storage configurations); plus has a metal back.

The G4+ has a 5.50 inch display, a 1.5/1.2 octa-core processor (four cores at each speed), and ships with Android 6.0.1 (there’s an OTA Android 7.0; and there are various models with different RAM and storage configurations).

There’s, a slight difference in physical size (because of the screen size), and stylistically some minor differences in the general appearance… but really they are more similar than they are different.

The pluses…

The handset are solidly built, not bloated with useless apps (in the unlocked versions), support a uSD card up to 256GB (though if you’re buying a phone like this I suspect 128GB is the largest you’ll want to pay for at this time), have turbo-charging, and reasonably good battery life (the two have slightly different size batteries).

Accessories, like tempered glass screen protectors, cases, chargers, etc are aggressively priced and easily available.

Both are have been well received by the hacker community, so there will likely be good support for rooting and custom ROMs for the foreseeable future.

The minuses…

Neither have NFC (at least in the North American models), and both have micro-USB rather than USB-C.

The subjectives….

The finger-print scanner is on the front.  Lenovo (Motorola) hasn’t been doing extremely well in this market and have made efforts to move more upscale (so there may not be a Moto g6+ to carry on the lineage).

Conclusion…

From my perspective, if you’re looking for an unlocked handset that is feature rich, with good performance, and won’t break the bank — either of these will do you nicely.  Watch for “refurbished” or “customer returns” and you can find these at about 40% off — making them an incredible deal.

Also, if a handset will last you easily a year — I’d pass on any type of insurance, but at these prices single payment cell phone replacement plans won’t empty too much extra out of your wallet (remember there’s a fee when using the insurance, so figure that into whether just buying a new or having the insurance makes the most sense for you).

It’s not a happy Memorial Day…

It’s not a happy Memorial Day, it’s a solemn Memorial Day.

Today isn’t about barbecues, beach parties, or a day off… it’s about remembering and honoring those who have paid the highest price in the service of our country.

Today we pay respect to the fallen, and give thanks to their tireless efforts to insure the greatness of our country and the liberties we enjoy.
