Our Father in Heaven,
We give thanks for the pleasure
Of gathering together for this occasion.
We give thanks for this food
Prepared by loving hands.
We give thanks for life,
The freedom to enjoy it all
And all other blessings.
As we partake of this food,
We pray for health and strength
To carry on and try to live as You would have us.
This we ask in the name of Christ,
Our Heavenly Father.

In My Opinion – Best Portable App Browser Out There

Pale Moon Portable

Over the holidays you may be at more than one PC to access your personal files and data on the internet. The thing you don’t want to do is leave behind are any traces or tracks that can compromise your accounts and privacy. A workaround to this is to use Pale Moon as your browser and to run it from a stick (flash drive)…  I have used this browser extensively from my flash drive and I can tell you it is the best one out there in terms of performance and security…

Pale Moon portable has been specifically designed to take with you on removable media with high wear and slow access, and its default settings reflect this.

Pale Moon offers you a browsing experience in a browser completely built from source with carefully selected features and optimizations to maximize the browser’s speed*, stability and user experience, while maintaining compatibility with the thousands of Firefox extensions you have come to love and rely on.

New 6430u Smells Awful

I often will check out forums at the various computer makers. While on the Dell forums came across a topic where people are reporting an awful ammonia smell (similar to cat urine) being generated from the Dell 6430u laptop… I have to wonder how many cats were evicted from their homes over this?

image

The forum topic start off like this:

So a few weeks ago I got a new Lattitude 6430u for work.

The machine is great, but it smells as if it was assembled near a tomcats litter box.  It is truly awful!

It  seems to be coming from the keyboard.

Anybody got any advice on removing the smell??? READ MORE

Collection of 30 Blogs for Tracking Kids’ Activities

October 3, 2012

To return a favor to a fellow blogger, who is the webmaster at Babysitting Jobs – Your Online Guide For Anything & Everything About Babysitting, today’s post features an article at their site,  titled:

30 Blogs for Tracking Kids’ Activities

30 Blogs for Tracking Kids’ Activities

HAPPY THANKSGIVING – Giving Thanks To My Readers

November 24, 2011

Blogging is a lot of work, but there is reward. The reward comes to the author from the readers, their comments and their following.

Today, I am going to do something a little different that is off topic.  It hit me this morning to randomly pick the first reader I could locate and give recognition to that reader as a symbolic gesture of thanks to all the readers that have ever visited my blogs (What’s On My PC and Bookmarks4Techs).

Ironically, the first reader I came across is someone else who enjoys writing, appears to have just started blogging, and goes by the online name of Talin401. I can remember (and will not forget it) when I first started this venture I was under the wings of Bill Mullins (at Tech Thoughts) and TechPaul (at Tech-for Everyone). What they do not know is their gestures really made a change in my life.  So today, I hope to make a difference in this reader’s life.

Talin401, as a symbol to all my readers, I say “Thank You” and as a gesture of thanks I am asking my readers to please take a moment and visit Talin401’s blog. It is called – Talinorfali – Just Another WordPress Blog.

image

Talinorfali – Just Another WordPress Blog is not a tech blog; however, I do see some inklings of tech in some of the writings (i.e. How Social Networking & Communication Has Changed The World).  It is a blog where personal inspiration and advice is provided.  What a nice blog to find on Thanksgiving.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING !

Three Technological Innovations That Will Blow Your Mind

November 18, 2011

Technology never ceases to amaze me. Check out these three technological innovations that will blow your mind — a spherical flying machine; brain imaging technology that is leading us down the road to mind reading; and, ASIMO, the humanoid robot.

Spherical flying machine developed by Defense Ministry’s Research Department

The world’s first spherical flying machine developed by the Research Department at Japan’s

Ministry of Defense. This machine can hover like a helicopter, and take-off and land vertically. But because it works like a propeller plane standing vertically, it can fly forward at high speed using wings, which a helicopter can’t do. This machine also has three gyro sensors, so even if it hits an obstacle, it can maintain its attitude and keep flying through automatic control. – [ source: DigInfo TV ]

Spherical Flying Machine

————————————————————————————-

My Take: Keep government out of mind-reading business

The age of mind reading is upon us.

Neuroscience is advancing so rapidly that, under certain conditions, scientists can use sophisticated brain imaging technology to scan your brain and determine whether you can read a particular language, what word you are thinking of, even what you are dreaming about while you are asleep. [ source: CNN Belief Blog ]

ASIMO – The World’s Most Advanced Humanoid Robot

ASIMO is the culmination of two decades of humanoid robotics research by Honda engineers. ASIMO can run, walk on uneven slopes and surfaces, turn smoothly, climb stairs, and reach for and grasp objects. ASIMO can also comprehend and respond to simple voice commands. ASIMO has the ability to recognize the face of a select group of individuals. Using its camera eyes, ASIMO can map its environment and register stationary objects. ASIMO can also avoid moving obstacles as it moves through its environment.

Be Sure To Visit My Sister Site – Bookmarks4Techs

November 5, 2011

If you are regular visitor to What’s On My PC, you surely have noticed that I have links posted to my sister site – Bookmarks4Techs.

image

Bookmark4Techs started out as a personal project of mine as a result of managing my personal blog – What’s On My PC.  When searching for content for my blog, I found myself constantly trolling the internet in search of the latest and the greatest in computers, software, and information technology.

I found, for the matter of convenience, that if I listed the sites I regularly visited on a web page, I could troll the internet at a much faster rate (especially with today’s tabbed browsers). It was after a certain point of collecting numerous tech related websites that I realized that this collection may be of use and interest to others.  I love visiting other tech blogs (and sites) and I am constantly adding to this collection.  It is amazing how good theses sites and blogs really are.

Bookmarks4Techs is not just for techs; it is for everyone. As a matter of fact it is a great conduit to Amazon.com where I am currently serving as an affiliate. For example, if you click on the computer and accessories tab you will be redirected directly to Amazon’s site on Computer Accessories. It all has been an experiment of sorts to test out the affiliate experience (to see if it really works) and at the same time give people a launching point to other technology sites. You will find the sidebars loaded with RSS feeds to some of the best tech sites out there; plus, if you click on the Bookmarks4Techs tab you will be taken to my collection of tech sites (currently over 600 sites and growing).

Also, in an effort to draw people to Bookmarks4Techs I am constantly trolling for tech bargains and new technologies that have surfaced on the market and any other tech related products that may be of interest to you. I especially use Amazon.com, TigerDirect, Circuit City, NewEgg, and CompUSA to locate products of interest.

I ask that you “pass the word”…
