Amusing Column: 'Our So-Called Digital Life'
An excerpt from an amusing column on our digital life. Feel free to read the entire article.

July 27 - Finally. I am about to stop building and start living my digital life. In just a few more days, the computers, accessories and software tools that I use at home and work will be fully upgraded, optimized and fine-tuned for maximum efficiency.

Only a few items remain on my technology to-do list. I must patch my operating system, update my security settings, defrag my hard drive and download a new anti-spyware tool. I need to subscribe to Skype, Del.icio.us, Flickr and satellite radio, and must delete or cancel memberships with PayPal, Paltalk, Grokster and Friendster. Or, is it the other way around?

My e-mail inbox is a mess. I've got to archive my old e-mail and preserve the addresses of the good contacts. I must pick through my spam filter and separate family messages from the e-mails of all those desperate Nigerians.

I really need to backup my hard drive. I have not backed up my hard drive in six months. That is grounds for impeachment as a technology writer. I would also like to connect our TiVo to our home network and buy the extra cable needed to connect our widescreen TV to our stereo system. If there are cables left over, perhaps I will network the toaster to the couch.

I must figure out why there's a buzzing sound coming from behind my computer.

Oh, I am actually a touch typist, and the fingers still do function. What I really should do is run the material through my grammar checker, either if it is done by the dictation software or the old fingers, because neither usually ends up being free of error the first time around! ;-)

Use the trusty keyboard, Jim, if your fingers function. Sometimes I am baffled by your posts.

Tossing the TV set out and the cell phone sound like a good idea to me. :-)

Oh, speaking of computerized programs, I don't know how Motorola got in my message, the word should have been Mozilla. This dictation program just doesn't want to learn the proper words. ;-)

Well, you don't have to stay in the digital life. I hope to toss the cell phone soon, maybe the computer one day as well, and probably will never own another TV. That's a start, anyway. If I could live as independently of this "modern" or "advanced" society as possible I'd do it, and maybe one day I will; I have little tolerance for it and would just as soon try a different lifestyle.

If this fellow, use Motorola products for his browser and email, he would have so much trouble with spam.

A person better have the latest spy ware programs such as, Adaware and Spybot, both of these are free. You should be running spy ware after every session on the Internet. (SIGH!) :-(
