Larry....   I joined this room about 2 or 3 weeks ago.

I'm not sure what you're talking about.  Have someone been rude?

I usually prefer to respond to comments rather than initiate a comment.... but that's just me.

There is a lot of phishing going on. I received this advice from my server:

3. If possible, do NOT click on hyperlinks within emails. It is easy to spoof URLs (web address) by making the visible address appear different from the actual one underlying it.  Simply copy and paste the URL into your browser. This will ensure that the actual underlying address, to which you will be directed, is visible.
4. When browsing secure sites, look for the "https" prefix and the “lock” icon in the status bar of your browser.  Click on this to check the validity of the web site security certificate.
5. Do NOT give out personal account information over the phone. Your server Technical Support and Accounting staff has access to all relevant customer information and do not need to ask you for this over the phone. If in doubt, hang up and call the regular server phone number. Check your written contract if you are unsure as to how we can be reached.
6. Keep your operating system software updated with the latest patches; use current antivirus software.
7. Change your online passwords often, and use strong passwords - at least six characters long. These should consist of a combination of upper and lower case letters and numbers.

Your server and its staff take the security and safety of your Internet access and account very seriously. Our employees are constantly working to protect your privacy and guard against viruses, spam, malicious code and fraud. However, since no system can be absolutely perfect or reliable, we ask that you remain alert and aware of the fact that deception and fraud on the Internet continues to grow.

Note: I have changed the name of my server to just server. Good advice for anyone.

Problem with TVO as entertainment (aside from SNAM) is they often have British shows with poorer quality sound and strong Brit accents so it is a struggle to understand it some times and that's frustrating.
Comment by John Stacey on October 3, 2011 at 10:29pm
Right with you on those "Unreality Shows" Gary. A 3 dollar bill has more reality. Same for "American Coyote" or was that "Idol"? Thank God for TVO.

Gary and MarilynLou: Saw your comments re the asinine choices on television these days...fully agree with you both.  There is so little that would challenge anyone with a good mind.  I try to watch the news on a daily basis....that is about it.

One fantastic Video ! It is fiction, but great movie.

This is a much longer video of the story of the dog and the dolphin. Great show.

I don't really care for the Big Bang Theory show. It just doesn't grab me as being funny.

Loved Ludy, Carol Burnett and the Golden Girls. Loved the shows like Ed Sullivan with his great guests and such variety. We used to have some good Canadian variety shows too, once upon a time.

I also watched Land & Sea. So sad indeed when men are doing what they know so well, their livelihood. The part that is so sad is they thought they were coming in a timely fashion. My husband also makes his living upon the sea, when the helicopter went down off NFLD, he was supposed to fly that day.Tension in our family was bad that day, but we mourn the crew that lost their lives as they were family. Documentaries are sometimes real close to home.
Comment by Glady Dixon on October 3, 2011 at 9:08am
The show Big Bang Theory seems to have some promise.  To me, there has not been a good comedy on TV since I Love Lucy, Carol Burnett Show, The Archie Bunker comedy and Golden Girls.  Maybe I have poor taste now.
