Very odd WI-Fi problems found.

Any Wireless Device May Fail.

Dome of the reported failures are very strange.

Look at this:

Report of Doorbell Breaking Wireless.
Jun 25, 2004, 2:11 PM
Archived from groups: alt.internet.wireless.

My wi-fi connection intermittently dropped to almost nothing. This
annoyance occurred seemingly randomly and infrequently. It did occur
enough to be irritating, so I checked around the house for things that
could cause this behavour. I dont have a microwave or a cordless phone
so I was stumped.

In the above, he found it was the wireless doorbell. How is that possible? Because the spectrum used by unlicensed devices is shared and not managed.  There is no enforceable law that says devices must not interfere with each other.

Almost anything that uses electricity might interfere with Wireless.

Wtch Out when you use eBay and Paypal

Do use eBay? PayPal? you better be very careful about how much information you give them.

No, I did not say avoid them. I said be careful. I have them as do millions of happy users. But watch out. Neither of these companies are covered by the same government rules that apply to banks. So there is a risk of losing some money and your privacy when sing the two mentioned on-line operations.

I once sold this teddy bead on eBay. No problem at all. So, I am not saying you will have a problem. Just be careful and use common sense. If an item on the auction site looks to be too good to be true, it might be that the seller is not being very honest.

About Pay Pay. The want information about your bank account.  Watch out. You may want to talk to your bank and find out how you can protect yourself. One thing you might do is open a new account just for your ob-line shopping.  Perhaps even with a different bank. Otherwise there is the small bur real possibility that some criminal body could get funds from you bank account without your knowledge. If you keep a very low balance in the new account, that criminal will not get much money.

The point here is this: Your local bank has people you can go talk with and the can help you.  Do not expect that from any kind of on-line company. The on-line companies will put your on hold and even then will only give you a short reading from a script.

Did I say this is only about eBay and PayPal? No, this also would apply to Amazon and all the other on line vendors. But pay pal radially annoys me because the want my bank information. Once you let anybody have you banking information, you are at risk for of being robbed by some persons breaks into the security of the on-line firm. It does happen.

Should You Build Your Own Personal Computer.

No. Unless you really want to and have the right reasons. Ream about the Pros and Cons.

Years ago all personal computers were home built computer. The first Apple computer was b built in a garbage by two your men who had a dream.

The early home builds also were made with parts for Motorola, Intel and other chip makers.  sand other chip makers It was only after those early years that the rest of the world knew about personal computers.

I built my first computer. Would I do it again. No, I would not. I did it as a learning experience.  It got me up to speed on digital technology. I had done all my work in the Analog world. I had to learn what digital electronics can do. That was the quick way for me. I do not do well in a formal learning environment. I have to get my hansd on something I want to understand.

But what about today? Well, today there ere other reasons to build your own.  For one, yu might get more value for your money. Another is you pay only for what your really want, not what some salesman things.

Here is on of the best articles about this object from another website,  Make Use Of.

Is It Still Cheaper to Build Your Own PC?
