Sextortion Scam: What to Do If You Get the Latest Phishing Spam Demanding Bitcoin | Electronic Frontier Foundation

“They have my password! How did they get my password?
Unfortunately, in the modern age, data breaches are common and massive sets of passwords make their way to the criminal corners of the Internet. Scammers likely obtained such a list for the express purpose of including a kernel of truth in an otherwise boilerplate mass email. “


Phil Kerpen: Obama,Tech-Socialists Stole Internet from the People, We Must Take It Back

    • For over a decade, professional liberal organizers and agitators – backed by a tidal wave of big liberal foundations and Silicon Valley corporate money – have told a bizarre scare story that without heavy-handed government regulation, Internet service providers (ISPs) will start blocking what websites you can go to and impede free speech on the Internet.  No such thing happened in the approximately two decades that ISPs were unregulated ‘information services’ under the 1996 Telecom Act. Indeed the opposite occurred as robust competition between phone and cable companies – and later wireless companies – drove speeds dramatically higher and consumers benefited from an Internet that innovated beyond our wildest dreams.
    • Kerpen elaborated on the liberal end goals for Net Neutrality:
    • “In the end, there is no real answer but to remove brick by brick the capitalist system itself, rebuilding the entire society on socialist principles.”
    • Kerpen explained that everything changed when Trump was elected. “But you see that all changed when Donald Trump was elected President and nominated Ajit Pai as chairman of the FCC,” he noted. “They are already eliminating onerous regulations at the FCC, and now they can get rid of Net Neutrality.”
    • The American Commitment president explained that the liberal media has been lying to Americans about the benefits of Net Neutrality. “See the problem is that Ars Technica, The Verge, Wired, all these liberal tech websites 100% lied to you on Net Neutrality. The internet prospered under light regulation when there was no Net Neutrality.”
    • He continued, “The liberal media will also lie and smear Chairman Pai and President Trump to force Congress’s hand and keep Net Neutrality. Republicans need to do what they were elected to do: stand and fight. And win.”

What is your baud rate?

To a computer geek this is like watching old family movies.
What is your baud rate?
Do you have a “graphical” browser?
I remember asking people I was helping if the Netscape “activity indicator” was doing anything.
Those were the day. I’m glad they are gone.

Outlook 2010 – Favorites disappear

Here is a list of possible fixes I found.

    • Start-> Run; outlook.exe /resetnavpane  < This worked for me.  If the problem reappears I’ll just change the shortcut to launch Outlook every time to include this switch.
    • Install SP 1 from the Microsoft Download Center:


      32 Bit,  http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=26622

    • Keeping public folders visible in Outlook 2010
    • So here’s what to do:


      1.       Add the public folders to favorites (right-click and add to favorites).


      2.       Open your Shortcut folder (may just be a small icon in the bottom right of the navigation pane.


      3.       Delete the Outlook today and Microsoft Website shortcuts (right-click -> delete shortcut).


      4.       Right-click on Shortcuts and New shortcut group.  Name this something sensible.


      5.       Right-click on the shortcut group and choose new shortcut.  Find the public folder in the favorites.


      6.       Repeat step 5 for all public folders.


      7.       Right-click on the smaller icons in the bottom-right hand corner of the navigation bar and choose navigation pane options…


      8.       Click on Shortcuts and use the Move Up button to bring it nearer the top for easier access.


      9.       Now when you switch to mail from the calendar, remember to click on the shortcuts bar to open it up and keep it visible while you work.  Sit back and relax and enjoy having the public folders we knew and loved since 2003 (despite MS concerns of security).

    • created new profiles on each transferring over all my outlook stuff from the old profiles.
    • I managed to get them back by right-clicking on the ‘Mail’ shortcut in the nav pane, and clicking ‘Open in New Window’
    • Outlook.xml file in users\xy\AppData\roaming\microsoft\outlook
    • shutting down Outlook and restarting it puts the favorites  back as they should have been
    • Go to FILE / OPTIONS / ADDINS / Manage: COM Add-ins [Go…] – Uncheck as many Add-ins as possible
    • renaming Outlook.xml works for a few week
