Change Your Passwords

It is highly recommended to change your passwords so that they are at least 8 characters in length, provided you at least include a number or two, and one or two capital letters.

Some good password information pages are at:

Great strength checker

Good advice, but don't use the checker (the one
above is better b/c you don't have to 'submit' it)

Consider changing your passwords today! Consider your e-mail, ftp, computer login, network login, router/access point (14 or 15 recommended), and any other passwords you might have.

And don't put them under your keyboard! :o

Technorati - A Great Blog Resource

Technorati... is to me what it sounds like - a souped up, really nice looking blog directory and social networking tool. I get a little more formal feel from it than I do from BlogCatalog, which both have their own level of personalization and comfort. And that's why I'm proud to be a member of both.

They help keep the web current, focused, and interesting...

AT&T Home Entertainment - Customer Owned Equipment

This message post isn't so much a complaint, although I do have those in this regard, as it is just something I learned that I thought to share, and who knows, perhaps I'm missing something.

We have DirecTV. Not by choice, but because the apartment complex we live in has a contract with them, so we basically don't have a choice. However, although we have DirecTV, for our area, DirecTV farms out our service to AT&T HE (AT&T Home Entertainment).

Aside from other major fiascoes with AT&T HE, their services, and their customer service (or lack thereof), we thought to avoid rental fees on our receivers by purchasing our own. In February, AT&T HE even recommended "Customer Owned Equipment" (first e-mail at bottom). However, apparently now, there's no longer such a thing as "Customer Owned Equipment".

Wow! I was and still am bewildered. But again, perhaps I'm missing something... I can't find any news articles on this anywhere. Am I mi…

BlogCatalog: Become a Neighbor, Become a Friend

Of all the blog directories that I've posted my blogs to, I've come across one that has taken blogging to an inspiring level. Blog Catalog has allowed individual bloggers to become part of a larger family, where you can join neighborhoods and become friends with folks around the world based on likes and similarities. A new definition of the word friend, where you don't even have to have ever spoken with your friend, yet you still share a kindred bond between blogs.

Come join the family, join a neighborhood, and become a friend :)

Inspiration for this blog post comes from Monawea, who is helping to let folks around the world know of this great blogging directory/community. Join the discussion!
