I have to admit since I purchased my Google Home, I’ve been trying to find ways to automate various things around the house. One of the easiest/quickest things to do is to purchase the smart outlets or smart plugs. Recently, I was looking at smart options for garage door openers. I went looking through eBay and found a very low-cost solution; it’s not glamorous, but it does work.

If you have a Plex Media Server, you know how convenient it is to have access to your media anywhere you go and on any device. Having access your media (music or videos) is something that you can easily go to your friends and family and brag on how awesome it is; you might even be inclined to offer them access to your Plex Media Server.
This might be a mistake on your part…

I’ve been using Bitdefender for several years. I started using Bitdefender when I started referencing the AV-Comparatives website that independently tests the performance and security of antivirus software.

For those who run a Plex Media Server, you know that one of the weakest points of having a Plex server is not having statistics baked into the application. You don’t have information about how many users you’re serving up how many streams, how many transcodes and what are the peak hours of the day. The information you really want to know if you’re running a Plex server for more than just a few people.

Over the past year or so, I’ve been getting into using the Google Home (assistant). It’s nice to be able to turn lights on, ask general questions and set appointments just by talking.
But one of the most disappointing things about the Google Home habitat is the ancillary devices/switches. A lot of them are fairly expensive. Running around $40 per socket or device. From my view, it’s excessive.

This morning (5/11/2017), in the Senate intelligence meeting, the committee asked the leaders of our respective intelligence communities if using Kaspersky antivirus software was a good idea. None of those individuals endorsed using Kaspersky antivirus software to secure the computers. Kaspersky antivirus software is based in Moscow, Russia and has been recently mentioned/associated with the Russia spy effort in the United States.

Since the time of me being able to download and install Dragon Professional Individual version 15, I’ve had continuous problems with using the software with Skype for Business version 15.0.4900. one of the advertising points of Dragon Professional Individual version 15 was that it was compatible with Skype for Business; version 13 and 14 were not. Version 15 was supposed return that functionality, but I have yet to see it.
Over the past couple of months, at least since late September 2016, I’ve been trying to work with Nuance support on a resolution. So far, nothing.
