This is a great question!
Get a cat!
I’m not following how being a vegan, which dictates which foods you choose to eat, relates to your approval or disapproval of the natural events that animals are using, right now, to survive, including hunting and killing for meat.
There are live critters on your kitchen counters, leaving disgusting Continue reading “How would you handle a mouse infestation if you were a vegan? Would your only option to be to get a cat? (Quora stuff)”
How do top students overcome social media addiction?
Mark Urso, Author of “A Candle Lit” (from Quora) …
They can take classes in programming social media applications!
Then they could become dealers, abandoning their morals and pushing social media applications on others, especially good-looking girls, to try to get them hooked, and turn them into pushers as well. If they can’t afford the classes, they should look into stealing money from strangers. Once they’re social media lord kingpins, they should learn Spanish, and go to some of the seedier parts of Mexico to pick up new social media applications and bring them across the border illegally. This can be extremely profitable. Continue reading “Social Media Addiction is Real!”
A Quora answer by Mark Urso, Author of “A Candle Lit”:
The problem with AA is something that happens very early, when a person, a “sufferer,” is first introduced to the idea, sees a pamphlet or checks out his first meeting … the system can easily lose its credibility and feel either like it’s extreme, or members are jumping to conclusions …
People are simply scared away before they join.
In my book, “A Candle Lit,” I call them “leavers-before-they-enter.”
The three biggest problems are …
Ambiguous Permanence: It’s never been proven alcoholism is permanent, but members commonly insist it is. This is a credibility hit if the new person thinks about it … To make matters confusing, the words “alcoholic” Continue reading “Why is AA So Ineffective?”
I’ve learned something about troubled young people. I spend more time these days on Quora, where I have an established audience for my mental health preachings. Before I speak in layman’s-statistics-style, I’ll be general.
Quora is a place anyone can ask a question, and anyone, showing their credentials, can answer. I spend time in the mental health section trying to help people. I’m 56, well experienced and self published, and I find it gratifying thinking I might help someone.
Quora, though, isn’t a cross section of young people, even though there are a lot of Continue reading “Good New Article”
I got 400 views on my Quora answers today! I’m up to 15,000 answer views, total!
Quora is a website similar to a blog, where lots of people ask questions and anybody can submit an answer. I have more activity there then on my own (this) blog, and invite you to come across!
Here’s an example Continue reading “The Bunny Bazooka Dilemma”
This technical article deals with common grounding issues with equipment used by musicians.
Not So Silent, But Deadly
It’s important because there are documented cases of people getting hurt, even killed, just because they didn’t know they should be plugging their guitar amp Continue reading “Grounding for Musicians”
The economic forecast for the computer cloud industry calls for rain. Except over the Dropbox application, where it will continue to be sunny and pleasant!
Today’s blog is about Dropbox, a retail application that shines in a very cloudy space in the world of the Internet.
Many people probably don’t know why Dropbox is the winning application to solve hard drive and syncing needs for more users than … (I don’t actually know this, but you can look it up if you want; this is a “do your own research” piece).
If you’re a techie, you know. If you’re a stock analyst, maybe not. That’s like a doctor not knowing why his patient is so healthy!
It’s simple. But you have to do one thing that the Dropbox people don’t require you to do, and which many people don’t do … to experience the invisibly near-perfect app Dropbox really is. Continue reading “Nothing Great: The Dropbox Story”
I’m an audio guy. I’ve always been involved in audio, from my radio days to the present; I eventually couldn’t think of anything better to become than a musician!
I’ve always thought fondly of audio. I watch video and listen for the audio. I whisper to my cat. The two of us listen to the birds, crickets and wind.
I have audio cables hanging out of boxes in my house like wysteria. Continue reading “Xarelto Versus Bruno Mars”
Sometimes when a company says they have great customer service, they don’t.
They may, though, have a hopeful program in place that aims to have great customer service, based on the fact they have bad customer service. Often this effort will be bolstered by advertising about how great their customer service is. In fact, often, if you want to know what a company is particularly bad at, just take a look at what they claim to be great at.
For Amazon, this dynamic is easy to see in the “Advantage” program.
The warehouses Amazon continues to build around the U.S. are not justified logically. The programs they support are for small sellers (like me) and don’t work. The company is denying the complicated problem by just building more. Continue reading “Amazon, The Big Engine That Can’t”
Do you have an Apple iPhone or computer?
Does it ask you for your “account password” too often and for no good reason? Is it, like many, stuck, and you dread the Fort Knox password-problem-process?
You are not alone.
Even the stalwart Android smartphone operating system (nicknamed “suck-an-apple”) leans on a cloud, but the brains behind those phones and tablets, many made by Samsung, already know and aren’t too stubborn to accept, people will never live in the cloud. Continue reading “Apple and the New Cloud 9 Operating System (or, What’s My Password Again?)”
We’ve gone black! And we’re not going back!
This is it! The new color scheme!
And not only is it cool, and features a lack of complicated, emotionally-draining, computer-intensive color, it’s good for you!

The Creature In The Light Blue Suit
No man should ever wear an entirely light blue suit. There might be a book of great advice like this, called “Awkward Things To Avoid” that my cable company, Cox Communications, got a hold of for its advertising campaigns.
Here’s a company that breaks every rule of good advertising, creating the ultimate catalog of mediocre, awkward television ads, despite being in the TV business. Probably because they’re not really in the TV business. They just use those old cables to compete with Netflix.
There’s the one where the clever college student ponders silence, which his girlfriend explains Continue reading “Playing Monopoly With Cox (or, How to Get Your Google Back!)”
