End of semi-geeky days

If you loved the old fashioned plain text email (but with all those good functionalities) in pine and sadly said goodbye to it

If you loved managing your website by writing directly in html instead of clicking and pulling down menus

you'd understand why i LITERALLY cried over losing my public_html directory

Surrendering freedom/self-control/individualism to so-called security is becoming a globle trend, apparently.

identity theft

土豆,还记得吗,我说过,丢失爱情和自由,究竟不比丢失identity更可怕。
------------------- 近几年来流行分割线:-------------------
--------------以下为个人建议,不负法律责任-------------

请大家记得查你的credit report

多数州都有立法可以每年免费查一次,因为有三家公司各可查一次,信息大同小异,你实际上可以每隔四个月查一次。

搬家的人记得在邮局办转信业务,最好早早opt out (https://www.optoutprescreen.com/),免得多的信件被新住户打开或乱扔。信用公司发卡的审查比想象中松懈的多。

顺便讲一句给很多连google都懒的土人,不愿接到telemarketing电话的在这里注册电话号码:https://www.donotcall.gov/
