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

Alien Math: Another consideration about "L" as we say it compared to how Americans say it, our form blends L with our words well, using the American form there is an extra layer of difficulty as the letters following L have the wrong inflection or stress added

  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

  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.

  Alien Math: New wildfires raise alarms across Alaska

  Alien Math: 3.1 million acres have burned in Alaska this year
Poor air quality suffocates region

There were 152 new fires in a single weekend in late June, according to Alaska Wildland Fire Information, a website operated on behalf of several state agencies including the Alaska Division of Forestry and the Fish and Wildlife Service.

Though lightning caused some of the blazes, many were started by people, the site reported. On a Saturday, for example, humans caused 17 of 67 new fires reported to the coordination center.

Strange, I've always thought of Alaska as the huge, cold, untamed land, with snow and fresh air everywhere...

  Alien Math: Adobe fixed one of these vulnerabilities last week but another two zero-days remain unaddressed. Both CVE-2015-5122 and CVE-2015-5123 present a critical code injection risk on Windows, Macintosh and Linux systems.

Patches are promised later this week (possibly as early as Tuesday) but Mozilla has decided to act proactively ahead of their release.

"All versions of Adobe’s Flash Player plugin are currently deactivated by default, until Adobe releases an updated version to address known critical security issues," Mozilla explains on a support page.

Mark Schmidt, head of the Firefox support team at Mozilla, heralded the Flash lockdown on Twitter before other Mozilla sources clarified that the move is likely to be a temporary restriction pending patching rather than a permanent sanction against the frequently abused Flash technology.

Also remind to check the Java version in every browser, many Java type can be installed with different browsers using different versions,

Include that Java can be enabled in one browser and disabled in another.

  Alien Math: How can I see which Flash Player version is installed?

The update addresses a critical vulnerability in Flash Player version and earlier.

Follow the How to update Flash Player instructions to update your computer to Flash Player version Firefox users who install the update will see Flash content display by default. ]

  Alien Math: Notes from Alaska by Julia O'Malley

"In Alaska, nobody really cares if you went to Harvard, but if your grandmother was buried here, you should say so because it gives you cred. I think this is because there are only 700,000 people in this state and a whole lot of dangerous country, animals and weather.

People from very different backgrounds tend to find themselves relying on each other, so we care most about stuff like whether you are the type to carry a tow strap in your truck and would be willing to pull us out of a ditch in a snowstorm. Politics come way second. Our loyalty to Denali over McKinley is driven by the same impulse."
