Ashley Madison: Women And Dating Sites

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 30, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

To a certain extent, I feel sorry for all those men who have been caught out by the Ashley Madison hacking affair. Sorry that their private lives have been revealed, that they now fear their secrets will come out into the open, that marriages or relationships have been destroyed. My feelings are tempered, as you […]

Facebook: Rules Are For The Masses

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 29, 2015 in Internet |

Have you seen those recommendations for people who you might know on Facebook? They’re mixed in with the adverts as a list of names with a small photograph and, sometimes, they are reasonably accurate. Based on those who you already know, the Facebook algorithm takes a small selection and encourages you to add more names […]

I Blog, Therefore I Am

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 28, 2015 in Internet |

The art of blogging, it is fair to say, has come of age. Although more younger people are just beginning to write their thoughts and lives for the Internet public to see, there are millions of older bloggers who have managed to overcome the first three months of cyberlife and continue to write. They have […]

I Was There: Selfies And Disaster

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 23, 2015 in Internet |

Selfies, the fad of taking a photograph of yourself, is not a modern thing no matter what people may say. Artists through the centuries have recorded their own image in their works since man first discovered that he could scratch on cave walls, and many of the most famous Masters have included themselves in world […]

Anchor Babes: I Lost It For A Moment There

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 21, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

I got caught up in my own confusion recently, reading through Twitter without clicking on any of the links to get the low down on each short message. What I read is not what was written, at least, not in the way that I thought it was. In other words, I gained a completely different […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
