Short Sighted Or… ?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 22, 2012 in Internet |

Strange how some people in (minor) positions of power seem to feel the need to exercise that limited power against others. I wrote about Craigslist the other day, about how their User Agreement makes you, the user, keep the blame for anything which goes wrong or which might be illegal, but allows them to make […]

Infatuation

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 21, 2012 in Personal |

I’ve been told I am infatuated with my cell phone. Thinking about it, I can understand why so many people seem to spend much – or most – of their time using a cell, for whatever reason. It is like the television must have been way back when; enticing, a bit interesting, drawing. And all […]

Too Many Rights?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 20, 2012 in News & Opinion |

At the risk of upsetting hoards of highly paid attorneys around the world, and especially those employed by the Associated Press, I thought I would share a complete news article with you, from today, which demonstrates how impossible some copyright claims are. By Associated Press, Updated: Wednesday, June 20, 4:04 PM WASHINGTON — Justice Dept says president […]

TLDs

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 19, 2012 in Internet |

There was a time when ‘tongue in cheek’ meant someone was making fun of you. Nowadays most people probably associate the image at least with that of someone giving someone else a blow-job. And, to a certain extent, the feelings I get at the above image can be felt when I read about the new […]

The Restaurant At…

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 18, 2012 in News & Opinion |

Hard to imagine anyone who hasn’t heard of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, although, since the book is about thirty years old, I guess it could be possible. And the themes in the five books contained in this trilogy are still in the news today, perhaps in new forms, but still there. For example, […]

Does This Make Sense?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 17, 2012 in News & Opinion |

Really, you need to read through this news item and then tell me whether this politician has his head up his ass or whether he really is serious. I know that the British are subjected to an amazing amount of Big Brother style monitoring and will soon have no effective private sphere at all, but […]

Trying New Things

Updates, changes, new software and ideas, it is almost impossible to simply work at something in the Internet without coming across something which makes life easier, better, brings more fulfillment with it. And which you need to spend more time on keeping up to date or even correcting so that it works in the first […]

Overpowering

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 15, 2012 in Personal |

I think I am gradually wearing her out. It’s not that she has no interest any more, quite the opposite, just that she probably needs a little more rest, a few longer breaks away from me. Now, I don’t mean completely away as in a Time Out in separate rooms or houses or even towns, […]

Taking Notes

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 14, 2012 in Personal |

There are so many things happening, so much to see and experience, it is often impossible to recall absolutely everything which is why, on the advice of others, I not only have a small pocket camera with me (most of the time) but also a special notebook. In fact, I have two notebooks – and […]

Role Models

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 13, 2012 in News & Opinion |

We are constantly told that this or that person, usually someone in the public eye such as a sports person or a politician, is a role model. We are told this when they have done something wrong, when they’ve been caught out doing something bad or illegal – yes, there is a difference! This telling […]
