Creating A Good Password

password

by “The Coach” (Contributing Editor)

 

The past couple of months have seen some remarkable problems with computer security.

We have seen Target, 7-Eleven, Citibank, J. C. Penny, The Home Depot and many other stores and companies secured computers hacked and financial information and passwords taken by unknown persons and/or governments.

I thought I had a good computer security system and firewall set up. Then I learned that one of the most secure computer systems

A couple of my favorite things: NETFLIX and the Kindle

netflix-1

Figured I would say a few words on two of my favorite things…..Netflix and the Kindle.

I have been user of Netflix for several years now – going from receiving DVD’s in the mail to now only streaming movies. At around $10 per month for unlimited streaming of the thousands of movies, TV shows, documentaries, etc. it is a great deal. Many of you may remember a few months ago that I got rid of

Letter Re: Reading When TSHTF

kindle

Hello Rourke, Nice post on e readers BH. Hard copy is no doubt the best for a static situation. A few studies seem to show retention is better when working with paper rather than electronic format. I have a large regular book library of several thousand titles and three kindle readers. I study history and read a lot (well I suppose that’s understated) and enjoy reading on the small backlit kindle at night. The adjustable

Knowledge is Power!

Knowledge is Power!

By

“The Coach”

Editor At Large

In today’s world knowledge is power. Too many people get all of what they think they know by watching the TV news, listening to the radio or reading the news papers. The TV, radio and news papers slant what they want you to know by what the editor and/or owners believe in. This way they can slant the American

Own a Kindle?

Long time readers likely know I am a huge fan of the Kindle (and other e-reader’s). I am probably due for another article on my reasoning for incorporating electronic books, manuals, files and video’s into my “preparedness library”. Anyways – if you own a Kindle or have a Kindle app on one of your other devices – this may interest you.

 

Over at BestPreparednessDeals.com there was a recent post that listed numerous survival and

Like guns? Check out RECOIL Magazine

DCIM112SPORT

At my local newsstand the other day a new magazine caught my eye – RECOIL.

RECOIL was published on January 31st and is impressive. Oversized compared to most gun magazines like Guns & Ammo – RECOIL features some of the best firearm photography and graphics I have seen. The magazine promotes that it is for the “Gun Lifestyle” including gear, technology, sport, outdoors, home and personal defense. All stuff I like.

Flipping

Prepper Burnout?

 

Ever look at your efforts in preparedness and think to yourself – “Self, is this all just a waste of time?” Ever think about the hours spent reading blogs, visiting preparedness forums, and making plans and consider that all of that time could have been spent doing something more “important?” I mean – that awesome AR-15 that you finally got off of layaway could have afforded the family a nice vacation
