reinstall Teredo tunneling pseudo interface part 1.

I mentioned last week the fact that I caught a bug. It was adware, and I cleaned it up with 4 plus hours of deleting and scanning and cleaning again. Now I keep finding more things going wrong with the old pc. Suddenly a webpage would get unresponsive, and navigation became difficult.
I ran another set of scans and sure enough, more adware, so I cleaned it up and the next time I went forth into Webville, I had the same symptoms again. That’s when I received a message about how my computer needed an updated piece of hardware.

Teredo tunneling pseudo interface is the gadget that tells other computers who it is. It might have worked fine forever except there are too many computers for an old interface. The net is expanding and a new interface has been employed.
I told my machine to fix the problem and it said it couldn’t. So I tried a couple of times and decided to get an answer out there. I couldn’t get Microsoft to do anything, and other sites kept saying, here download this…
I almost installed a couple of different supposed to be fixes, when I saw these products were another attempt to infect my pc even more. I started checking reviews on the fix I needed and found my answers. I will post the answer after this so if you don’t want to look at it, I won’t blame you.

Commenting On What Ever You’re Looking For

This is an old post from a blog that never went anywhere. It is a rehash of the old. No one was interested in it, even sitting in cyber-space for 2 plus years. Comments – 0 Views – 0. At least the score was tied. I still want to know, what do you want? I spent a week standing on my head, hoping to catch your attention, and failed again, as usual.
31 May, 2012
When writing blog posts I try to write about subjects other people may want to read. I don’t get enough feed back from my visitors to know what they would prefer to know more about, so I’m left guessing. I keep hoping some of you might leave a comment suggesting what you would enjoy reading, so I can put out there whatever you’re looking for.

I keep hoping to share knowledge, ideas and information, as everywhere I look someone is trying to sell information. I think information should be free. It’s one thing taking lessons and learning from someone, and they might feel their time is worth something, but the little info a person gets shouldn’t be a money thing.

People tend to over value themselves, like they’re all ” that ” and really that kind of greed is exactly what’s wrong on this planet. Even though we all have to make money to pay bills, charging people for simple information is greedy.

I had hopes the Internet would be more interactive. I figured people would comment, saying ” Gee, I really liked the article about that, but was hoping you would write on this subject! “ Or ” that article was stupid, how can you think anyone would want to read about that? “ I can’t control what others comment on or think, or what others say in their comments. I recognize commenting on blogs is one way to get others to check out the many and diverse blogs and websites out here in cyberspace, and to create back-links. I welcome your comments, although sometimes I have trouble interpreting the comments made to me, as the translation is not as accurate as it can be.

It becomes even more difficult as I think, speak and write in English, and I know it is a hard language to learn all of the nuances of. I had thought some of you might want articles for your sites, and of course you might want Me to write them, even if I am not a famous author or journalist. I do have 50 plus years of experience, although that isn’t in writing. I can spell sometimes and do know how to make subjects interesting, at least I hope I do!

I feel like I’m just wasting digital ink at times. I had thought a year ago when I started writing articles on various subjects, the people out there would let me know, whether they liked what they found or didn’t. I had thought the Internet would be a lot more interactive, meaning more people would honestly get involved with me in various ways.

I kept asking what you all would like to know more about. No one says a word, leaving me to my own devices. I had thought you all would tell me how you don’t like the garbage I’ve been publishing, and you want better information, or newer information, or ideas that are in line with what you are trying to do. Instead no one says much of anything.

I do read all of the comments on my sites. Sometimes the translations aren’t as clear as I would like, but unfortunately translations are literal, and don’t comply to modernistic or slang usages of various languages. I appreciate your comments, even if I don’t get around to approving them immediately.

About the approval of your comments : Your comments usually will be approved if you leave a website address, or a real e-mail address. If you don’t have a website, that’s fine…just don’t leave a phony one. I do look up the sites you list as your urls, and am disappointed when the page won’t load or comes back with site cannot be found. I try to be honest and of course I always hope you will be honest too.

You are welcome to make comments, good or bad, giving me approval or not, it doesn’t matter. I know many will make comments so as to create back-links to their own sites, and I’m all for that. I believe in honesty! If you don’t like what I write you are welcome to tell me so. If you want a particular bunch of articles published for your enjoyment, feel free to state that. I only write because I can’t make videos yet, although I Do think I can write, at least somewhat.

I understand the English language, and have used it to create my own amusements. If you want articles for your own sites, I am open to trades or other arrangements. Like I stated earlier, I am looking for more interaction between you and myself. Let me know how you feel about whatever you feel and let’s get to know each other.

I have a couple of blogs out there in cyberspace, hidden between the 366 million websites you can dial-up, and you’re welcome to check them out as well. Hope to hear from you, telling me What Ever You’re Looking For. You all have a great day too!

Hey, did you see that number? 366 million websites ? Now that number is over 1 billion!

How to come up with article ideas

Writing Tips
Before you start, some quick rules:
The idea behind this exercise is quantity, not necessarily quality. You might come up with some junk ideas as you race to write them down, but at least you’ll come up with ideas. Those ideas can be massaged and coaxed into an awesome title or topic for a winning article.
Force yourself to write stuff down. When you actually begin to type words, you begin to come up with more ideas and to think in clearer ways. This exercise will be completely useless unless you actually write things down.
This is idea generation only.
Now is not the time to assign article topics, craft the perfect headline, or create the chapters for your ebook.
Be as specific as possible.
The following is a process for coming up with tons of topic ideas, but the specifics are up to you. As you write stuff down, also force yourself to be specific.
Now, let’s come up with 50 ideas…
1. Go to a place that is free from distractions and interruptions.
2. Open a document to capture your thoughts.
3. Start your timer for 30 minutes. Having a specific amount of time will force you to be productive.
4. The question phase. Ask yourself the following questions, and try to create at least two topic ideas from each one:
What are you passionate about in your industry? I’m passionate about content marketing. But I’m not just going to write an article on “Why I’m Passionate about Content Marketing.” Instead, I’m going to channel that enthusiasm into a major work that I can get excited about, like an advanced guide to content marketing.
How did you get started in your industry? Everyone enters their niche in a different way. How did you get interested in your area? What training did you have? Don’t be afraid of getting personal here. The best content is stuff that is personal, while still actionable and oriented to your audience. People love to hear about others’ experiences and to read things from a first-person perspective.
Why is your product the best?
What is the greatest challenge in your industry?
What does success look like in your industry?
Who is the most successful person in your industry?
What is the biggest news in your industry?
What is a success story from your business? Biggest failure? Stories of personal experience are perfect for article topics. Discuss how and why you failed at first, or what factors led to some huge success.
What personal skills help someone become successful in your industry? This is easily a top 10 list — several of them, actually. From time-management tips to email ninja advice, you can bust out a bunch of practical and tactical advice that will really appeal to your audience.
What tools do you use to get your job done? This is another list or top 10 article. What kind of things do you use — a desk, a Macbook, an iPhone, a Bluetooth device? What about mobile apps? Web apps? Data storage? Coffee? Write it down.
Where, when, and how do you do your best work?
Why do you enjoy being in your industry?
What is changing in your industry? These are great current topics that will fuel search queries and drive traffic.
What are some processes or practices that you have perfected? If you’ve achieved some level of expertise in a specific area, describe how you did it. Advanced guides and detailed topics are best.
5. The Search Phase. Actively seek out ideas elsewhere on the web. Perform each of the following searches, and jot down at least five ideas from each source.
Visit the blogs of industry leaders. What are other leaders saying? If they are all discussing similar things, there’s a good chance you need to be part of the conversation.
Visit the major industry websites. Beyond the blogs, there are other websites that provide industry information.
Visit the social profiles of industry leaders. Focus on Twitter and Google+. If you’re following other leaders in your industry (and you should be), track down their presence on Twitter, and Google+.
Search Twitter for trending topics in your industry.
Use Twitter’s search function to find out what’s trending in your particular niche.
Use Google autocomplete to come up with keywords and related topics. Google search alone is a powerful way to generate keywords that can morph into topic ideas.
From, start typing in a keyword of your industry. Continue typing. I suggest a verb. Keep changing up the verbs, the keywords, and the order of words.
6. The rumination phase. Unplug and write stuff down. Finally, relax your mind just a bit, and let the good ideas flow.
What’s next?
If you’re still in the topic-generation zone, just let your timer go off, and then keep going. You can come up with 100 topics.
Final Tips
Beyond your focused topic-generation sessions, you will always have some ideas floating in at random moments.
Always be writing stuff down. Our best ideas come when we’re totally disconnected from our work. It could be when you’re jogging, showering, or waking up in the morning. That’s why you need to always be writing down your ideas.
Always be learning. Whether it’s from reading, talking, watching Ted Talks, or trolling social media, you should always be in learner mode.

Strange And Extinct Animals?

Just an update y’all…See this place too.

Suppose you found a species of animal you thought to be extinct? Here are a couple of videos from YouTube showing footage of previously thought to be extinct animals. One of these videos was filmed in the 1940’s.

Cyber Appreciation Day

I truly appreciate you

2015-02-10_083649 appreciation 2


Been There, Wish I Could Do That.
I have been checking out a lot of the other blogs out there. When someone likes what I posted, I go to their place and make sure I don’t make a mess, and poke around and peruse….
I thank you followers and liker’s for making me feel like I’m not just a waste of digital presence. I only arrived here in your sight about a month ago, and am truly a fish outta the water.
I don’t know how to do much yet, but I will learn. My biggest bad habit is my stubborn way with not quitting. No mountain can impede my progress, and now I think I have digital friends to share my “everything” with.
Over the years I’ve tried to continue to believe people are inherently good, although I don’t see it in real life, very much. I am beginning to see it here on the blog. I didn’t go to Woodstock. I was already shying away from the crowds when that was happening.
I am reclusive, yet here on the net I am alone and yet finding Friends. I still don’t have the interactions I had hoped would transpire, but I’ve only been here a month.
Thank You for being willing to let me be this much more social with you. I do appreciate all of you, and hope to be a part of this neighborhood for a long time.

Laptops And Smartphones’ Low-Power Signals Leak Data | Video
by NSF
Side-channel emissions from laptops and smartphones can be detected from a several feet away and transmit data even when not connected to the internet. If you keep important records or valuable information on your laptop or smartphone, you had better watch this.

The ideal length
The ideal length of a tweet is 100 characters
The ideal length of a Facebook post is less than 40 characters
40-character posts received 86 percent higher engagement than others.
It was found significant advantages to ” question posts ” between 100 to 119 characters.
The ideal length of a Google+ headline is less than 60 characters
In the last update, Google changed the layout of posts so that you only see three lines of the original post before you see “Read more” link. In other words, your first sentence has to be a gripping teaser to get people to click “Read More.”
The ideal length of a headline is 6 words. We tend to absorb only the first three words and the last three words of a headline.
The ideal length of a blog post is 7 minutes, 1,600 words
(A photo-heavy post could bring the average down closer to 1,000. Medium’s seven-minute story on ideal post length was filled with images and graphs and contained 980 words.)
What it means is that it’s worth writing however much you really need. Don’t feel constrained by presumed short attention spans. If you put in the effort, so will your audience.
The ideal width of a paragraph is 40-55 characters. ( that’s the length of my previous statement) Content width can give the appearance of simplicity or complexity.
Content width is key to maximizing reader comprehension. The ideal paragraph length, in this sense, would appear simple to the reader and allow for easy reading.
The problem is, to ensure maximum comprehension and the appearance of simplicity, the perfect line length ranges between 40 and 55 characters per line, or in other words, a content column that varies between 250-350 pixels wide (it depends on font size and choice).
Forty and 55 characters per line means about 8 to 11 words.
The ideal length of an email subject line is 28-39 characters. The general rule of thumb in email marketing is to keep your subject line to 50 characters or less. The exception was for highly targeted audiences, where the reader apparently appreciated the additional information in the subject line.

The ideal length of a presentation is 18 minutes. The science behind this 18-minute mark comes from studies of attention spans. Scientists seem to agree on a range of 10 to 18 minutes for how long most people can pay attention before they check out.
It [18 minutes] is the length of a coffee break. So, you watch a great talk, and forward the link to two or three people. It can go viral, very easily. The 18-minute length also works much like the way Twitter forces people to be disciplined in what they write. By forcing speakers who are used to going on for 45 minutes to bring it down to 18 minutes, you get them to really think about what they want to say. … It has a clarifying effect. It brings discipline.
The ideal length of a title tag is 55 characters
Title tags are the bits of text that define your page on a search results page. Brick-and-mortar stores have business names; your web page has a title tag.

Tag Length


Recent changes to the design of Google’s results pages mean that the maximum length for titles is around 60 characters. If your title exceeds 60 characters, it will get truncated with an ellipse. The design change can be seen below where a formerly ideal title has now been truncated.

Title Length with Keywords

The ideal length of a domain name is 8 characters.
It is short
It is easy to remember
It is easy to spell
It is descriptive or brandable
It does not contain hyphens and numbers
It has a .com extension
An Alexa report that looked at the domains for the top 250 websites. The results: Over 70 percent of the sites had domain names of 8 characters or less, and the average number of characters per domain was just over 7.

Klerksdorp Spheres

Klerksdorp Spheres are “out of place” artifacts, found in sedimentary rock, in a coal / diamond mine near Ottosdal, South Africa. It is believed these objects are up to 3.8 billion years old. These objects are spherical/ovoid shaped — similar to how planets like Earth or Jupiter are “squished”.
Spheres found in the mines of South Africa have piqued the curiosity of researchers for decades. The spheres appear to be about 2.8 billion years old, with a very hard surface and a fibrous structure inside.
They are found in pyrophyllite, which is mined near the little town of Ottosdal in the Western Transvaal. This pyrophyllite … is a quite soft secondary mineral with a count of only 3 on the Mohs scale [a scale of 1 to 10 to rank the hardness of minerals] and was formed by sedimentation about 2.8 billion years ago.
The globes are very hard and cannot be scratched, even by steel. some are so balanced in shape and proportion, and the grooves around them look so straight and hand-carved, it seems unlikely they were naturally formed.
One of the spheres was tested at the California Space Institute, and scientists concluded that its balance “is so fine, it exceeded the limit of their measuring technology.” It was “within one-hundred thousandths of an inch from absolute perfection.”

Spy Watch : Is Your Computer Protected?

WTF my view online

I am running another scan on my “old, outdated, nearly obsolete computer. I haven’t been downloading much since the big adware thing hit me. I’m not sure that anyone is safe out there. Which security systems should you use?

I am told over and over, by marketers and the likes, ” don’t use free anti-virus or security programs”, as they’re not safe. The impression is free programs are substandard, or a diluted version of the real thing. I believe both views are correct in some cases…..

I have bought different programs such as Symantec and McAfee in the past, and wondered if those programs were actually worthwhile. They pretended to do the jobs they were supposed to do, but when it came time to renew the subscription, all of a sudden the computer is infected and full of viruses and trojans and worms etc.

Chances are the various programs do, what they’re promising to do and only give that hype to get you to buy that service again. If that’s the case I don’t need that kind of pressure on my mind. But….

I did a scan with Trend Micro Housecall and that program found 10 or 12 bad problems. I deleted them of course only to have my pc acting up again as soon as I went on-line. So I scanned the computer again and was notified everything was clean.

Not knowing any better I figured everything was fine, and proceeded to go on-line and had the same problems all over again. It got so bad with, slowness, hyper-links that shouldn’t be there, pop-up ads, and a computer tech program slamming into my browsing experience.

I called the number and got a tech to look at my machine. I’ll relate that tale later, but for now I’ll tell you the end result of his findings. He poked around and showed me how I had 21000 error messages, and showed me some adware stuff in the files. He did not fix the problem, but told me I could buy something that would fix it and said it would cost me about $500 to be right with the net again.

I got it all fixed sort of, meaning now it’s an ongoing task to kill the beasts that got me. I did what my previous article said and spent 4 1/2 hours cleaning the system. And I did that with a free system, although I will send Malwarebytes a donation.

Here is that link again for those who think they need it.
