via <jessicafischerqueen> Protip: Set all the "auto download" switches on "manual" for everything- including "safe companies" like Microsoft itself. Give yourself a chance to be alerted to an update and educate yourself about it (via internet search) before allowing it.

When you download an app, go very slowly through the process. Read every word. NEVER just obey "recommended."

Check (or uncheck) any box that will give you bonus BLOATWARE extra downloads.

Finally- before downloading anything or permitting an official "update" on anything (java, microsoft, google, adobe) Google it first.

Sample search terms:

"Adobe update @#$%ed my computer"

"Is Ed's Video Converter Safe?"

"Do I really need IE 10"?

Find out BEFORE you update or download. Full Member

  Domdaniel: <Alien Math> Heh, Thanks. Why are any of us in the boxes that we find ourselves in?

December 26th, the day after Christmas Day, is called 'Boxing Day' in England, but here in Ireland it is known as Saint Stephen's Day.

  Alien Math: I think we are born to conform, our fathers and fathers before them finds a path that works, and the rest follows, seeking the path of least resistance,

The day after all fathers day as I know it, a day of wonder for some, a day of horror for others for they have not pleasesed him,

many care for their elders, few find a pleasing path, knowing briars seek to thwart them, they find the path of resistance to their liking,

It is not for the faint of heart to seek a path away from history of family learnings

  Alien Math: Our Thanh might be ability to converse with English, Viet, Hmong, Mandarin based communities and German,

What she lacks is an understanding why they chose their particular phraseology,

She tries, but she is too direct in her form, unless diverting notice of events

Premium Chessgames Member
  Domdaniel: <Alien Math> Very interesting, thank you. I think it is very true that most people seek the path of least resistance and become conformists. And even those of us who think of ourselves as non-conformists still end up conforming.

  Alien Math: various notes: Ancient Receipt Proves Egyptian Taxes Were Worse Than Yours

A recently translated ancient Egyptian tax receipt shows a bill that is (literally) heavier than any American taxpayer will pay this year more than 220 lbs. (100 kilograms) of coins.

Written in Greek on a piece of pottery, the receipt states that a person (the name is unreadable) and his friends paid a land-transfer tax that came to 75 "talents" (a unit of currency), with a 15-talent charge added on. The tax was paid in coins and was delivered to a public bank in a city called Diospolis Magna (also known as Luxor or Thebes).

One talent equaled 6,000 drachma, so 90 talents totaled 540,000 drachma, researchers say. For comparison, an unskilled worker at that time would have made only about 18,000 drachmaa year said Catharine Lorber, an independent scholar who has published numerous journal articleson Egyptian coins.
