I routinely use a virtual disk and use an alternative eMail address when I peruse the web. I don’t want anyone to be able to insert a bot or a virus on my computer that will leave me unable to peruse my data- more importantly, I don’t want anyone else to examine the contents of my computer.
It was 7 years ago today.
I had been sharing my take on sci-tech, business, health, and finance for decades before that day. Which meant my clients and friends were subjected to frequent (some would say incessant) newsletters, eMails, letters, publications- oh, you get it.
Back in 2000, it was time for a new car. And, as I had been doing for decades, I had a Chrysler on order. Ever since 1975, my car choice had been Chrysler products. (I even had a car leasing company that provided only the Chrysler family of products to clients.)
Except that Mercedes Benz had just bought the Chrysler Corporation. Right before the delivery of my car.
Almost every little boy (and a slew of little girls) is enamored of fast cars. Making that car go faster than anyone else around. (Of course, doing this on our highways often means you meet certain folks in blue. We are talking about doing this on tracks.)
