LifeHacker recently posted their list of notable online classes, check it out at LifeHacker University.
I enrolled for the Sustainability class at Coursera, where many colleges and universities offer free classes. Another web site that brings together many schools is the Open Courseware Consortium. MIT offers classes at OCW.
Are you taking any classes online?

I went to mail a few letters, ol' fashion paper letters, and the envelopes I had were so old that the gum on them was useless. It had dried out or something.

Technology is wonderful - when it works. Cord-cutters take note.
So anyway last night I went to watch a Canadian Football League game (don't judge me!) and I got the message above. Of course there is no way to message anyone at ESPN and Comcast/Xfinity 'help' via Twitter is not much use either. I found things were working sometime in the second half.

How did I get a negative Bitcoin balance in my EasyWallet account?
I thought I was just transferring out the BTC I had in the account, taking into account the slight fee of course, but it should be zero not less than zero.
Don't know what Bitcoin is? Check this out: Bitcoin.org.

The WD Passport comes with what looks like back-up software on it but I just plug it in and manually send files and folders to it. In the future I may look into the back-up software or, more likely, try Windows back-up application.
Anyway $50.00 and no complaints from me.
