How to protect yourself against hackers (or at least make it difficult for them)
My good deed for the day: providing the link above to you and asking you to take note.
Better safe than sorry.

The polls closed a few minutes ago here in the Heart of America (aka Kansas). Twelve hours ago I took a few minutes to cast my votes and submit my ballot. Something unheard of or scoffed at a thousand years ago, or even just a couple or three hundred years in the past; a privilege I have invoked every election year since 1982. A non-violent non-fatal process for expressing and affirming a society’s will or vision and any changes thereto.
I stumbled across, via my WordPress subscriptions, a blog post by an author I admire, L.E. Modesitt, Jr. entitled ‘Election Day … and the Polarization of Everything?‘ His observations struck a chord with me, especially with the heightened awareness the Internet brings to the radical (left or right … take your pick) and the Tea Party movement. Extreme viewpoints and adherence to a very strict code of ethics is laudable, but can lead to stalemates at best and a fall into violence at worst.
Without some hope of compromise, I envision a return to a Cold War-type era, where an ‘arms race’ of values and platforms trumps any Common Sense measures which when properly discussed and debated might actually benefit a majority of people.
I admit I’m often a centrist, attempting to accurately see both sides or all sides of an issue before making a suggestion or a decision. No matter how uncomfortable it might make me feel, I want to ‘walk a mile’ in someone else’s shoes before putting on my own and breaking trail on my own path.
