TGIF Ramblings And A Techie Warning

Friday, June 13, 2014

OK..some TGIF misc musings emoticon

Temp crown is still in, but also still "shifting". I'm having to be very conscious of what I eat and how I chew. That's tough then you'd think! emoticon

I didn't get any workout in at all yesterday day but that's OK. My forearm has been sore, the part just below my shoulder. It felt good this morning but after my workout today at lunch it's hurting again. emoticon

Last night I got a call from some guy at "Windows Technical Support", I knew what it was...a scam to take not only money but also control of my PC. I told the guy I knew what was up and hung up on him. Then a few mins ago...I got another call just like the one last night, on my cell, at work! Told that guy the same thing! I know some people will fall for this scam...so here's a warning..."Windows Technical Support" has NOTHING to do with Microsoft (maker of the Windows OS), Microsoft will NEVER call you, NO ONE can "see" anything on your PC (unless you have given someone that control) remotely, And NEVER, NEVER give that control to anyone or ANY info to some strange person cold calling you! Here's a example of what happens:


As stated above, I did get a good workout in today. 77 mins on the elliptical (for a whopping 411 calories burned). emoticon

Eating was good yesterday and not that bad so far today. My weight is down from Monday's weigh in (I'm only weighing on Mondays and Fridays now). emoticon

Karry called and she's trying to set up Caleb's activity tracker (it's for kids and called ibitz Kid Wireless Pedometer). When I sent it to him he ripped into and somehow the code to activate it got lost. We'll have to call the company on Monday to get a new one so Karry can set it up (it works like a FitBit for kids using a phone app...so far ONLY for iCrap stuff). But Caleb is excited to start using it! emoticon

My SIL called last wanting to know if I had checked to help at home for when mom lives with us...ummm...NO...we've only been back a WEEK. Is she expecting to die and mom coming to live with us in the near future? emoticon

There MAY be some GOOD news on the hubby's job front. We're in a wait and see mode as of now. Then of course just as things may look up for him...they (the powers that be at work) put MY company up for sale! ARGHHHHHHHHH!! emoticon

So that's my ramblings for today. It's TGIF and that makes me HAPPY!

    Great info Linda, I haven't had to deal with any scam like that but will stay vigilant. Things will work out as far as jobs go so, I would say just go with it as one door closes another one opens right. Be good to yourself, see ya :)

    Oh geez! Been there done that with his lordship on the job. I hope the business doesn't get sold out from under you. When will Chuck know about the job? Hugs, Calen~
