Re: Fight Back the Phishers

Yeppers. I've done a core dump from Farcebook a couple of times. Everything except the actual posts I made. I was curious to see what all they did have on me. If you want a bigger surprise, get copies of everything the big three credit reporting agencies have on you. You would never believe in a mil...

Re: Good Vibrations

My brother was in the vending business for many years. Coin receptors used in gaming machines could handle 50 cent pieces, but the weight of the coin did cause excessive wear to the mechanism, which is why they were not used in pinball, video, or vending machines, which often used plastic coin recep...

Re: Good Vibrations

As a magician, we used the old steel pennies in many of our tricks, after we had them copper plated of course. You wouldn't believe what all has been done to coins to make them gimmicked for some trick. When the dollar coin was introduced around 2000, I bought several rolls of them after I started d...

Re: Fight Back the Phishers

20 years? Probably more like 50 years, the way our government works, or don't work as the case may be. The big social networks have amassed more usable information on people in the last ten years than the government has in the last 100 years. What the government does have, which is probably 100 time...

Re: Fight Back the Phishers

If you did genealogy work, you would find out it is not that easy to find anything on folks still living.
Even some of the long gone have no records to find.
I guess it would have helped had they had Farcebook accounts, hi hi.

Re: Good Vibrations

I have seven $1.00 coins in my pocket right now. I still use them!

I used to collect coins, but when my son was around 12 he took the coins and used them in vending machines at school.
Many of them were V-Nickels and Liberty Dimes.

Re: Good Vibrations

Yes they did make the illegal for trade, but a few collectors still have them, unfortunately, they have not accrued any true value. They sell for $1.25 to $1.50 is all, and some more rare ones up to $2.00. Now the Red Seal two dollar bills, if the seal is on the right, it's only worth about 10 to 15...

Re: Fight Back the Phishers

I went and dug up a similar article. They mentioned two online accounting programs. The first was Sage 50 Cloud, and the second was FreshBooks. Both can handle your IRS quarterly and yearly reports online, notify you of tax changes, which are automatically implemented in the program. Always up to da...

Re: Fight Back the Phishers

I was trying to look and see how much space I have in DropBox. I know I gained some extra free space a long time ago. What I never understood is; if I'm linked to someone else's folder, is it using any of my storage space or not? Different groups I've belonged to I still have in there, and in some c...

Re: Good Vibrations

The only time I had a safe deposit box was to store Red Seal $2.00 bills. I always figured the Red Seal would increase in value faster than the Green Seal version. They did, but not fast enough for when I had to sell them all to cover the late wife's medical bills. I also had several Silver Certific...

Re: Good Vibrations

I've done basically like you have. We have a fireproof lockbox down at the house, and another up here in the office. The originals are kept in the house, and copies of same in my office. Although there are a few duplicate and certified originals in my office as well. We have all the SS numbers for e...

Re: Fight Back the Phishers

Most of the authors I work with use DropBox, and we've never had a problem. If we download a document to make changes, when you save it back, it saves it as an edited copy, and doesn't touch the original. There is an exception to that. If you save it in your own folder as a fresh copy, it saves as a...

Re: Fight Back the Phishers

The service is who gives us the instructions on how to make a copy to save on our own computer. But if you are simply just sharing files or images across the system itself, you still have to download the file, then upload it to the person you want to share it with, or vice versa. The services system...

Re: Good Vibrations

Yes they were. They had more data on those forms, most of what I didn't know what it meant, but I'm sure the insurance company did. They fixed things up pronto after I got their licensing state involved. My first contact was with the Missouri Department of Insurance, since that is where I bought the...

Re: Good Vibrations

The insurance company I was dealing with stores their policies under the owners name. Apparently they have no other way of looking them up, or at least that is what they kept telling me. About fifteen years ago, when I moved south, I filled out all five forms necessary to update each policy to my ne...

Re: Fight Back the Phishers

As I said, way to complicated for me. I use a service where I can download pictures and documents from the service or from its members. On most of them, you cannot right click and save, although it looks like it is saving, it's in an unknown format with a .png extension, but is not .png at all. Howe...

Re: Good Vibrations

I had four different retirement plans, and had to cash them all in to pay for my late wife's medical bills. Apparently I had forgotten about one of them from my early working years. I was just fortunate they didn't overlook me, and when I turned 65 they started sending me a check for $42.01 each mon...

Re: Fight Back the Phishers

Don't laugh, I still carry a PDA, a PalmOne Tungsten E2. My favorite feature about it is I can WRITE on it with the Stylus, or my fingernail if need be. I used to also carry a MicroCassette, but it finally broke. I'm sure the belts inside dry-rotted, hi hi. I know some Schmartz-Fonz can do both of t...

Re: Fight Back the Phishers

I'm going to hold off as long as possible without getting a Schmartz-Fone. I don't even like the current generation of Flip-Fones, because they've added so much to them. I'm olde skewl. Snail mail letters, and e-mail messages, are for text. Voice communications devices. Like a telephone, portable ph...

Re: Good Vibrations

I think all the current projections have to do with 'after the fact' the government took all the money from SS, so it is no longer being invested or earning interest. The government took over the roll of paying retirees their social security benefits, instead of paying back the money they took from ...
