Windows 10 Problems: Ignore Until They Go Away

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 20, 2015 in Internet |

I’ve mentioned several times over the last few days that I am either upgrading to Windows 10, have upgraded to Windows 10, am having problems with Windows 10 or am considering reverting to Windows 7. I cannot imagine that I am the only one who is going through this phase, if other people have the […]

Dangerous Discussion Points And Questions

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 19, 2015 in News & Opinion |

We live in Politically Correct times, not as bad, perhaps, as they were a few years ago, but still times which cause many people to think before the speak or regret the simplest of things said. It is a time when we should be asking ourselves questions, re-evaluating what we know and do not know, […]

Windows 10: The Crash Crush

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 18, 2015 in Internet |

I can’t say that I’ve come across that many people who have lauded Windows 10 as if it is the new sliced bread. I remember people telling me about The Blue Screen of Death and now, with Windows 10, I have been experiencing it myself. I don’t know how many times it has crashed, I’ve […]

I Can’t Stand The Rain…

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 17, 2015 in Internet |

A friend of mine, when she has no more credit on her cell phone, always claims that the Internet is empty. She has seen everything, there is nothing more there, and she is just waiting until the end of the month when new content comes out, much as if she were buying her favorite magazine. […]

Why Do North Americans Fall For Payment Scams?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 16, 2015 in News & Opinion |

We live in an age when mass communication, the gathering and distribution of news and information, when education – in theory – is at a high point. In the Western world there are few who do not have some form of access to the Internet or, at the very least, a television with cable or […]

World Maps: The Final Proof

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 15, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

It is the truth as every single Australian knows it: all the maps of the world are wrong except those printed on their fair continent. Australia really is on top, along with all those other lands in the southern hemisphere, and President Obama, along with ex-President Clinton and a little help from Mark Knoller, prove […]

Sacred Cows And Art: The Eye Of The Beholder

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 14, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, whether that ‘beholder’ is another person or some narcissistic selfie-shooter staring in a mirror makes little difference. And beauty in art is also a matter for each individual, something which often cannot be explained to other people since it is such a personal matter. Comparing Constable, for […]

Privacy Issues: The Slow Reaction Of Internet Sites

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 14, 2015 in Internet |

If someone bothered going through a database of all the newspaper and magazine articles about privacy issues and Internet security published online, I suspect they would find a new article, possibly even a new threat, every single day of the week. It is a theme which attracts not only the privacy advocates, the hackers and […]

Twitter: Opening The Floodgates For Spam

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 13, 2015 in Internet |

There was a time when I was dismayed Twitter only allowed followers to send personal or direct messages. There were plenty of things I wanted to communicate to this or the other person in private, without having to publish my thoughts for the entire Twitter world to see. Then came the opening: direct messages may […]

A Hard Time Feeling Sorry

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 12, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

I look at the prices on the gas pump every single day as I go past, marveling at the constant changes and how, despite a theoretically proven lack of complicity, all the gas stations in a single town or area have the same roughly price. Up to ten times a day, I am told, there […]
