    G’day VecchioScarpone & Everyone,

     

    Here are some of Einstein’s thoughts on “Being.” I saved this years ago.

     

     

    “A human being is a part of the whole, called by us “Universe,” a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest—a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. The striving to free oneself from this delusion is the one issue of true religion. Not to nourish it but to try to overcome it is the way to reach the attainable measure of peace of mind.” ~ Albert Einstein

     

    Have a great day. Stay safe & well!

    Here’s an old quote/Drop of Wisdom. I’m not 100% sure if my wording is correct.

    “Give a person a fish and, let them eat for a day. Teach a person to fish and, feed them for a lifetime.”

    It may be applied to many situations.

    *Note: Quote above modified for “political correctness.” “Person” used to read “man” back in the old days………

    Is that the type of thing you were looking for, @VecchioScarpone?

     

    Happy New Decade Everyone!

     

    😊

    G’day Dan and Members,

     

    I’ve watched the video and, read all the responses so far in this topic.

    I do regularly use a paid VPN service.

    Up until a few years ago I hadn’t believed in them. That has changed as of a couple of years ago.

    Due to some idiotic behaviour on behalf of a “housemate” the home network was compromised. He suffered a severe case of identity theft as a result. My equipment was being “probed” quite regularly without success.

    The now “ex-housemate” was advised, by police, to replace every item he owned that was connected to the network at the time of the crime. He was also advised to change all of his online accounts; email addresses, site logins, plus his cell phone and, phone number.

    I had to change my router. No biggie.

    I did receive a large number of phishing phone calls on my cell phone(I believe my cell number was harvested from ex-housemate’s equipment.) I just blocked and reported all calls of that type.

    There was further advice from police that I should consider utilizing a VPN. I did so and the probing ceased.

    It may merely be a coincidence that the attempts ceased, however, for now I’ll be keeping the VPN. It’s a lot easier to change VPN servers than it is to shut down the router, for in excess of 4 hours, waiting for the connection to refresh to obtain a new IP address.

    I’m happy to “wear” the approximate 10% @100mbps drop in connection speed as a result of running the VPN; for the time being, anyhow.

    I suppose it’s a case of “horses for courses.”

     

    Take care Everyone.

    @simmerskool

    Excellent question!

    I too have been wondering whether it’s possible to do.

    I’ve given things a fairly thorough look through since I signed up yesterday, via MalwareTips. Currently, there does not appear to be the capability to follow a user. Possibly the “Subscribe” function may permit you to follow someone.

    I’ve also tried posting replies on the forums & via PM. I haven’t seen either of my posts appear. No response to PMs either; yet.

     

    Cheers,
