City of Oxnard Returns Money to Homeowners / Ciudad de Oxnard reembolsando dinero a propietarios de viviendas

No, it’s not I.T. related. But I do post local news when I think it’s really something you should know. And a government agency RETURNING money? Now THAT is RARE! But it’s true. Have you ever heard of the social network site called “NextDoor” …Next Door? Anyone can join, but you only interact with people in your own PHYSICAL neighborhoods/areas. It’s pretty cool really. I didn’t think I would find a use for it, but it does come in handy. And many local agencies also post information there now. Much like this post that showed up today: (if you want to go to the actual post, it’s here https://nextdoor.com/news_feed/?post=79838620  )

5.3 Earthquake Today Off the Coast…

You wanted to know where the earthquake was centered at, right? I did. Well, it was centered on the Island of Santa Cruz. (click header for full post to see map) My friend has a boat and often cruises out off the coast, and he took a video of the back side of the island, which has major damage, although no “people” were affected, the back side of the island broke off and fell in to to the ocean. If I can get the video link again, I will add it. If you are on the west side of the VC grade, you likely felt it pretty good. The whole county felt it though, but if you were in Channel Islands, Hueneme, or Point Mugu, you probably felt it the best. Well, now that you are here, why not look around a little? Most people need some kind of I.T. …

WordPress 4.9.5 is HERE.

Another WordPress CORE update came out yesterday, PASS IT ON! haha… Seriously, they do come out regularly. Do you have yours set to “automatically” update. I don’t. It’s probably more work the way I do it, because I do full file and database backup before updating the core files, …and while I have never needed that backup yet, it’s just my luck that the second I stop backing up first, an update will surely bring down my site and I won’t have the means to restore it, so my “automatic” feature, is turned off. How about you? Do you do your own? Do you have someone else do them? Do you ignore them altogether? (We do have an annual service that is very reasonable if you want them done “for” you…with backups first. Just get a hold of me on the contact page, or chat, or voicemail, or however you …

What is a CPE?

Ok, I had a potential client call me this morning, and ask me if was familiar with 5ghz CPE. I wasn’t at home or near computer when she called, and as soon as I indicated I didn’t have 100% knowledge on the subject she hung up. Big mistake on her part. Folks, it’s a COMMON marketing ploy to take an age old technology, wrap it in a new box (i.e.: …give it a new name) and hope that the general public is dumb enough not to recognize it and pay the 250% markup they are hoping to get on it. I get so tired of it really. It started with “THE CLOUD” …remember when that term was new? How many of you were, or maybe still are, confused the “The Cloud” …big clue…the “CLOUD” …is just another term for the internet, and internet related products and services. Stuff stored “in …
