Here’s a bottle of water freezing instantly this morning (January 22nd, 2014):   On a more business-like note, I’ll be posting about the end of Microsoft Windows XP support soon, I hope you …

JohnMHoyt Business, Computer Repair, Computer Service, Fun Stuff, John M. Hoyt's Personal Stuff, Video Link Leave a Comment

While most people whine and complain about the cold weather, I look forward to it for many reasons. I don’t dig the heat, or the humidity at all, which is really funny because have opted to live in the South! What’s to look forward to? Snow, ice, seeing your breath, doing donuts in your car in the snow (uhmmm or …

Who says school is boring? My son’s current project is to design and build a Rube Goldbergesque machine!

I haven’t been well due to that car accident on the 7th, in fact, today is the first day I could really do much in the way of work, so I am pretty happy. This trend should continue until I am hopefully back to normal (some of you will not believe it, but I am kinda normal)… Brett has a …

Google Chrome is faster than lightning, sound and a speeding potato

JohnMHoyt Computer Service, Fun Stuff, Homeland Secure IT, John M. Hoyt's Personal Stuff, Microsoft, Technology Leave a Comment

I’m still feeling horrible after the accident on Friday so I am at home. Better to hurt at home than to go in to work and not get anything done, be more uncomfortable, feel more depressed and make everyone at the office as sick of hearing me whine about it as my family and even myself…  It hurts to type, …

You would have to be living under a rock to still be in the dark about Google On Main / LuckyGVL (Just Google for #GoogleOnMain, #LuckyGVL, We Are Feeling Lucky, Greenville Google Fiber, etc). You probably already know that a couple thousand people in Greenville SC heard from various means, such as Twitter, Facebook, email, txt message or analog social networking like a …

Google High Speed Fiber Internet Still THE Hot Topic in Greenville

JohnMHoyt Fun Stuff, Homeland Secure IT, John M. Hoyt's Personal Stuff, Technology Leave a Comment

If you are from the Greenville / Upstate area you would have to be living as a Quaker to not know about all that is going on with the effort to bring Google Fiber here. Heck, even Quakers probably are aware of the community effort to catch the eye of Google. It is not just localized either. Greenville is showing …

A Computer Engineer Barbie Sounds AWESOME to me

JohnMHoyt Fun Stuff, Homeland Secure IT, John M. Hoyt's Personal Stuff, Technology Leave a Comment

I’m a little too old to play with dolls (as far as you know), however, I think I would buy a “Computer Engineer Barbie” to use as our mascot at http://www.HomelandSecureIT.com mainly because it is geek-gone-mainstream if nothing else. Additionally, think of the inspiration it could be to a young child who may actually be influenced to become an IT professional, …
