Windows 8 rhymes with Hate

This past week has been a very challenging time for me. I had to re-install Windows 8.

For those who have never done this. I would NOT recommend this to anyone unless you have the following 3 items:

  1. A current backup- I use Carbonite
  2. The original 'master' Windows 8 disk from Microsoft.
  3. Patient -  Which I don't have !

IRS Scam/Fraud

Today I received a phone call from someone claiming to be an IRS Agent.  He wanted to warn me that this IRS Investigation unit is going back 7 years and looking at the back taxes.  This guy would NOT stop talking. He spoke very fast, with a heavy foreign accent. When I told him he was speaking too fast for me to understand his heavy accent.  The he HUNG-UP on me.

I went to, and sure enough there was a "warning" about people who posing as IRS agents. 

Now I can have 'peace-of-mind'.  Should I be concerned that my tax records are out there ?

Safety First ?

I have always questioned this as a "Safety" phrase.  So what is second, if Safety is "First" ? (Maybe production ?) What pays for safety ? 

I always have said, that SAFETY has a cost.

I really enjoy, and admire the talented, artist, and cartoonist Pete Collins. He can be found on KelbyOne, Photoshop Users, The Grid, and many other videos. His strongest, and best videos are when he used the Wacom products.
