Good day, weary travelers! Today I’ve decided to drop an interesting bit of trivia, for those who may not yet know it.

Thomas Edison – you know, the lightbulb guy – made this thing a long while back called the phonograph. I won’t go into the mechanics of how it works, but the phonograph was essentially the predecessor to the record player. Nowadays, we have these newfangled music devices and it’s all… well it’s just tops.

What many may not know is that when Edison invented this archaic device of sound emission, he had it in mind as a recording device for higher purposes; Dictation, education, business, things of that sort. He believed that his invention would only be cheapened if used for the purpose of playing music. He eventually conceded, of course, leading over the next century to the extrapolation of other mediums for the purpose of musical recording.

Isn’t that neat? Bet most people didn’t know that. We learned something new today. Well done.

Alright, so I know it’s a common phrase, especially today with this fucking “YOLO” busllshit (seriously, stop abbreviating, you sound fucking ridiculous) but for the love of the gods, you only live ONCE.

Honestly, have you really ever thought about that? Not just “yeah, I guess that’s true” but like “HOLY FUCK, I GOTTA LIVE IT UP!!!!!!”

I’ve just had this epiphany about 6 months ago, and life could not be simpler. I mean really, you need to just DO IT, because you may never have another chance. And if you get hurt, oh well that’s life. If it kills you, so what we all die anyway. Just learn to say FUCK IT every once in a while.

What I’m trying to say, everyone, is this:

Measure your life not in the years you’ve lived, but in the fullness that you lived them.

May the gods watch over you

Firewall Implementation is serious business and careful consideration and planning is essential for keeping an organizations network safe from intruders. Firewalls are a system that monitors and controls the network traffic flow of many networks using different security measures. Firewall architectures need to be chosen based on the needs of the organization, while there are many factors involved the most effective solutions are configured in such a way that all network traffic passes through them.

There are four common firewall architectures such as: packet filtering routers, screened-host firewalls, screened-subnet firewalls and dual-homed host firewalls. All of these choices provide different types of security for your organizations network, dependent upon their needs. There are advantages and disadvantages to consider when implementing a firewall system into your organizations network.

First, we should be aware that there is not a network that is 100 percent protected
and will always be forever changing as new technologies roll out and new
vulnerabilities are discovered. We can minimize the risk with firewalls if
configured correctly otherwise an IT guy can make the security of the network
worse. Firewalls can control access to the internal network protecting from
malicious intrusions but not viruses because firewalls do not see what the
packets contain as they pass through. With that said configuring user
authentication helps prevent security breaches within the network.

Miner

Yep, the baddest miner in the North... no West... er I'm not sure where he's from.

So I am not a video gamer girl in the way that most gamer girls claim they are. I will be the first to admit that when it comes to new video games, I SUCK. So much so that at times Fisch will log into his Live account and let me play Call of Duty. This has caused him hours of enjoyment as he hears such phrases coming from my mouth as, “Get back here and let me kill you!”, “Hold still so I can kill you!”, and my personal favorite, “Stupid dogs killed me again!”

However, my many deaths and few kills do not stop me from enjoying the gaming experience. There are victory dances every time I make a kill. (Which promptly gets me killed again due to my lack of attention to the screen.) And there is more shit talk than a freaking sewer.

Though I fail at video games, there are a few that I do enjoy; any old school Mario for example. But my absolute favorite game, if you can call it a game, is Miner Dig Deep.

Miner Dig Deep is everything I have wanted in a game. There is no way to lose. There is no way to die. And there’s no end to the game. I believe I am one of the six people out there that actually enjoys this game. But I tell you what, I’ve played the hell out of it. My most recent mining run has seen me finding the diamond and starting a new mine three times now. Don’t worry if you don’t know what that means. It’s not important. It just means that I have no life really.

Awwww… now I’m sad.
