Next to Newsletter - Monday, March 7, 2011

Sorry for the delay in publishing this. Whenever we have heavy rain, our home Internet invariably goes on the blink. Then, eventually, it dries out and comes back on. That's what happened yesterday.

Now it's back, hopefully for good. Or at least until the next rain.

Let's do the Wild Card Sale- pick a card to see where your discount is. It could be 30% off ladies' tops, kids's clothes, menswear- one card is for 30% off your entire purchase!

My husband, Arthur, and I each write twice-a-month columns for The Times here in Gainesville. His deal with computing and technology issues. Mine deal with whatever strikes my fancy.

Arthur's latest was published on March 5th. Click here to read "Privacy online doesn’t exist, but that needs to be changed."

My column, published March 4th, is about a Georgia lawmaker's proposed legislation that's both hurtful and absurd . Click here.

This week's outrage

From Marilyn Midyette, CEO, Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta:

Proposed Georgia legislation would require a sales tax on all nonprofit fund raisers in Georgia including Girl Scout Cookie and Boy Scout Popcorn Sales. This significant financial impact would take money away from Girl Scout programs, camp support, financial aid and proceeds from the sales that support troop activities and community service projects.

This issue is being considered right now, so please contact your State House Representative and State Senator today and express your concern in a courteous, Scout-like manner about our Scouts being taxed. Please reference House Bill 385.

Rock-Paper-Scissors: You vs. the Computer

From the New York Times: Computers mimic human reasoning by building on simple rules and statistical averages. Test your strategy against the computer in this rock-paper-scissors game illustrating basic artificial intelligence. Choose from two different modes: novice, where the computer learns to play from scratch, and veteran, where the computer pits over 200,000 rounds of previous experience against you.

Click here to try, but be warned: this is addictive- don't start until you have plenty of time to play!

New message from Arthur:

Arthur says there are many forms of malware circulating the Internet. Some remain hidden in your computer, wreaking havoc with your system. Others appear as bogus utilities, warning you of non-existent problems. Often they will even give you a specific number of issues - something not possible if you hadn't run any scans with that utility. Others yet, are random pop-ups that you can't close. These all must be dealt with immediately. If they disappear on their own, they will return. They are not self-healing. If not eradicated, they will get worse, eventually blocking you from logging on to Windows, in many cases.

Call Arthur at 770-540-5100 or email him at if you need to set up an appointment. He guarantees his work, has rapid response times and reasonable rates. You've read his columns in the Times, now let him go to work for you.

That's it for now. Remember-email goes both ways...

If you run across any exceptional bargains or impressive new products, let us know. We'll put the word out!
Have a remarkable week!
