Importance of Backing Up Your Data – Part 2

The next, and probably most common, method of backing up your data is with a portable external hard drive. I use a combination of this method and the one I’ll be discussing in part 3. For this method you’ll want to get an external drive that is at least as big as your internal HDD or SSD.

It’s Official! I’m an Ordained Minister

Some time ago, while I was still a young adult, I had the privilege of listening to Rev. Quinton Mills, a Gospel singer. After the production, we spoke some more in person and I believe I was seeking prayer, if memory serves. He had recalled who I was, instantly, from a letter I wrote previously that year. He and his wife were very touched by it. “You’re the one…” he said with great delight as he proceeded to tell me how it was received by them. At this time, there was something special he saw in me. Inspired by the Holy Spirit, he anointed both my hands and my head with oil, that I should do something great for the Lord. Continue reading “It’s Official! I’m an Ordained Minister”

Beware of Scams

HIGH ALERT! 12-24-2016: BEWARE OF SCAMS! I recently received a suspicious phone call from another state. The person claimed that my company had sold his mother computer service coverage for $350 and wanted to know what it was for. I had no idea what he was talking about and I don’t offer subscription for repair service. Soon after the call ended I realized that he or his mother had likely been scammed and the scam artist used my company name and information.
