New Information:

  1. I am helping with the Oroville 1963 Reunion. Here is a data sheet to fill out if you have moved since 2013. Download. You can enter data on our contact page if you choose.

  2. I have created a Google Group for Ratsupport. Please feel free to check it out and join and comment. Ratsupport Group

  3. Amazon has some new devices and abilities. Please see this page from Cnet and feel free to contact me if you have any questions. You can not teach Alexa who you are by voice and then multiple people can use the same device and it will know who you are. How to setup Alexa voice profiles from Cnet

  4. I changed my configuration on my website to handle email better and it seems to be working but, I strongly suggest that you use an email client like Thunderbird email client. If you need help configuring it, will help at no charge. Thunderbird has a good spam filter that will not block emails that you want to get, all you have to do is put the email address in your contacts and you will get email from that person or business.

  5. I have been wondering around the internet and found an application you migh like to use. It is called Privacy Badger. What it does is block the advertising and others that are tracking you on the internet without your knowing it. Give it a try on all of your browsers (does not work with microsoft Edge). Privacy Badger Web Site.

  6. In an effort to keep information on My Website Private as possible, I have removed the links at the bottom of my pages that allowed Facebook, Twitter and Google to track you and me. Privacy Badger pointed out my pages were being tracked.

  7. I have a dear friend that told me about Pocket, I have enabled it and added it to all my browsers, yes even my Kindle Fire HD. What it does is allow me to save an article I come across on the net and read it later on any of my devices. Really Useful.

  8. Started working on a new area for The Smart Home Automation area will have information for those who need or want help with their Smart Home Devices. Just look at the Nav Menu and go to Smart Home.

    There will be tons of neat stuff, like a database that tells you how and what to say to your device. Please feel free to comment about our new information.

  9. I have added a unsubscribe from Email List to the Site. You can now just click on the link if it appears in an email or you can go to your Edit Profile in the Members Only Area and select No in the "Do you want Email" field.

    You will always be able to change this option by going to your Edit Profile in the Members Only Area and select Yes if you want to get emails again.

Thank You:

I want to thank the people at Vibralogix for their software and support. They provided the scripts to allow me to manage my Members area in a secure manor. They have other products that allow for paid downloads, secure url's etc.. I don't think I have ever had a better experience with a provider before. If you are looking to do a website or already have one, their products are something you should check into.

Steps that should always be taken to keep computer working:

  1. Always do your Microsoft, Linux, Mac updates.
  2. Be sure you have Anti-Virus software no matter your operating system.
  3. Have spy or addware software on your machine before you need it and keep it updated.
  4. Do your scans, the user must do virus and spyware scans on a regular basis.
  5. Don't open emails from sources you don't know and watch out for the ones you do know, microsoft for example will not send you an email, and probably your bank will not either, at least they will not ask for your personal information.
  6. If you do open one of these and realize something is wrong, run your updated spyware and virus scans then and there.
