Wireless Security Focus

Dec
01
My brand new Samsung Galaxy S4 4G-LTE Smart Phone activated on Black Friday. This is the free version of the Verizon Wireless "VSP" application or "Verizon Support and Protection", protecting me from Bad Things(tm) on the Internet.

As my friends and family may or may not already know I recently transitioned to work in this segment of the wireless industry. Working with new technology has always provided me a great deal of excitement throughout the years, particularly when I see technology succeed in augmenting or enhancing life - making mundane tasks easier, simpler, and perhaps even fun!

21st Century Life Companion

Nov
28

I broke a vow today. I tried - hard. I really, truly did. I tried to avoid the consumerism and consumtion that comes with "Black Friday". I promised myself I would stay home until it was time to go to work, and not spend a dime.

Then I found out that Best Buy, one of my _least_ favorite places in the world to shop, was giving away Samsung Galaxy S4 4G-LTE phones free with two year activation. So I decided I would make plans to head over early Friday morning and wade into the fray. Fortunately for me, I had the sense to look at their website early this morning and pre-order my unit for in store pickup. Added bonus: I don't have to wade into the store on Black Friday, have until December 5th to pick it up. Just moments ago, I visited their website - and they're completely sold out.

I'm SUPER excited about this new phone. It's been a very long time since I've had modern technology in my hands, and nearly as long since I last spent any money on something I _want_ for myself. Truth is, if it weren't for the Black Friday special, I'd have to fork out $300 for this phone, so I can let myself of the hook just a little bit.

Bonus: Mine comes in a pseudo-rare Blue Arctic finish.

A Perfect Circle - By And Down
Moving in and out of the shadows.
It's no easy mission,
Holding on to how I picture you.
Showing only bits and pieces,
Till the tide betrays you,
And your empty allocution.
Searching your eyes for a hint or a trace of humility.
Searching your eyes for the saint is an act of futility.
Searching your eyes for a hint or a trace of it.
Searching your eyes for humility.
Searching your eyes for a hint or a trace,
I'm still searching, searching.
Showing only bits and pieces,
Till the light betrays you,
And your empty allocution.

Rode the Piper by and down the river.
Carcass crippled underneath,
The pounding waves of adoration.
Pied Piper float on down the river.
Bloated carcass, crippled knee,
The weight of adoration.
Moving in and out of the shadows.
It's no easy mission,
Holding on to how I picture you.

A Professional

Nov

“Someone once asked Somerset Maugham if he wrote on a schedule or only when struck by inspiration. “I write only when inspiration strikes,” he replied. “Fortunately it strikes every morning at nine o’clock sharp.”

That’s a pro.

In terms of Resistance, Maugham was saying, “I despise Resistance; I will not let it faze me; I will sit down and do my work.”
Maugham reckoned another, deeper truth: that by performing the mundane physical act of sitting down and starting to work, he set in motion a mysterious but infallible sequence of events that would produce inspiration, as surely as if the goddess had synchronized her watch with his.

He knew if he built it, she would come.”

Excerpt From: Steven Pressfield & Shawn Coyne. “The War of Art.” Visionary Press, 2012.

Spiritual Vision

Nov
15
“Spiritual vision literally cannot see error, and merely looks for Atonement. All solutions the physical eye seeks dissolve. Spiritual vision looks within and recognizes immediately that the altar has been defiled and needs to be repaired and protected. Perfectly aware of the right defense it passes over all others, looking past error to truth. Because of the strength of its vision, it brings the mind into its service. This re-establishes the power of the mind and makes it increasingly unable to tolerate delay, realizing that it only adds unnecessary pain. As a result, the mind becomes increasingly sensitive to what it would once have regarded as very minor intrusions of discomfort.”

Excerpt From: Anonymous. “A Course in Miracles, Combined Edition.” Lulu.com, 2011-08-02. iBooks.
