Forward Those Entertaining Emails to forwardOn

February 27, 2010

image TechPaul from Tech-for Everyone was recently so ever apologetic for forwarding a chain email to me; BUT, he had some very interesting pics he wanted me to see that were floating around the internet via the never-ending email circuit. See, he is alot like myself when it comes to forwarding those crazy (but sometimes entertaining) emails; we, usually are the one’s that drop the ball and break the email chain.  We do have our reasons for that and mostly it is our protective geek nature to be security conscious and do all that we can to prevent any chance of malware from being spread and to help reduce clutter in your inbox. I’m sure our proactive actions really do not have much of an impact at all; but, we do try : )

As a result of our proactive geek behavior, I recently found a service, called forwardOn where you can forward (and store) those entertaining emails that you cannot live without; so TechPaul at Tech-for Everyone, feel guilty no more.  I will just forward those great emails you send me to forwardOn for all to see.  At forwardOn you can post:

1. Videos (including links to YouTube videos)
2. Pictures
3. Jokes
4. Audio
5. Files (Word docs, Powerpoints, and more)

The “cool factor” to this service is that it works directly from your email.  Once you signup you will be provided with a forwardOn email address where you can forward those emails to your forwardOn account where it will be posted on your own private page where it can be shared with everyone.  For example, below is my public forwardOn page for your viewing pleasure:

http://www.forwardon.com/Ramblinrick

forwardOn eliminates accidental viruses, email hoaxes and scams, wasted bandwidth and storage, clogged inboxes, unformatted content, and much more. The only thing I could not nail down with this service is how much space is given for storage…  It also appears the service offers a reward program, where the quantity and quality of your posts generates points that are redeemable for gifts, etc…

An On-Line Tool to Clean Your Monitor from the Inside Out

February 26, 2010

I knew this title would catch your attention and you are probably wondering, “How is that possible?”. Before I reveal how cleaning your monitor from the “inside out”, it is just important to know how to clean your monitor from the outside in…

If your monitor is the LCD flat screen type monitor it is very important that you do not spray liquids directly onto the screen and do not use paper towels.  Use a microfiber (non-abrasive) rated cloth or cotton cloth to initially remove the dust from the screen.  If a heavier cleaning is needed, apply a light dose of water to the cloth.  DO NOT use ammonia based glass cleaners. I routinely use a Swiffer duster to keep the dust from collecting on my monitor (and LCD TV screen as well).  There are also other commercial cleaning products available such as Staples Lint-Free Cloths to get the job done.  It is advisable that the monitor be turned “off” during the cleaning process.

If your monitor is the old CRT type, then using window cleaner sprayed onto a lint free cloth will work.  Again, do not spray liquids directly onto the monitor and make sure the monitor is turned “off”.

Now to reveal the online tool to clean your monitor from the inside out, click the link below.  During the “inside out” cleaning method, it is important that your monitor is  turned “on” and that you have access to the internet. Please allow at least 2 minutes for a complete cleaning.

If this on-line tool failed to work for you, then you most likely need to install the Adobe Flash.

FCC wants 260 million people on 100Mbps broadband by 2020

By Nate Anderson | Last updated February 16, 2010 1:58 PM

Finally, the FCC has had it with “small ball”—and the agency is at last detailing some big-picture aspirational goals for US broadband. By 2020, the National Broadband Plan calls for 100 million homes to have 100Mbps Internet access, and the US should have the world’s largest “ultra-high-speed broadband testbeds.” In addition, Internet adoption rates should hit at least 90 percent—way up from the current 65 percent.   read more…
