Do you use Last Pass for Password Management? If so you’d better read the following…..

“Bad news first, folks. LastPass, our favorite password manager (and yours) has been hacked. It’s time to change your master password. The good news is, the passwords you have saved for other sites should be safe.”

That line is a direct copy/paste from a LifeHacker.com article. If you want to read the whole article click here.

The bottom line is, you should change your master password right now…no not later, but now.

Surprised by His Spirit

Today I read the following in a publication called “Mount Saint Joseph Ursuline Associates Update,” and had to chuckle:

This year’s discussion is titled ‘Surprised by The Spirit,’ with panelists taking a few moments to talk about someone who they believed was called by God to serve, and ended up someplace she or he did not intend to be by responding to that call.

I answered my “call” the first time in August 1981 when I moved my family to Florida at His prodding and have been trying follow His Spirit ever since. If God Himself had spoken directly to me in 1981 and told me He was sending on a journey that would culminate in my working in a Roman Catholic Convent, I would have thought I was crazy and “hearing voices.”

In all the years from 1981 to 2012 I never thought He would lead me here. Even in 2001-2003 when I was the Thyssen-Krupp account rep that called on USMSJ and spoke to God about my thinking that this would be a wonderful place to work, I never thought I could possibly work here. My thoughts were along the line of “What would they need someone like me for?” Then in 2013 God said “Go!” and I went.

Working as a Network Administrator at Mt St Joseph is incredibly rewarding.

Advice for Single Christians

Advice for Single Christians

Let’s consider the facts. First, as of 2010, the median age of people when they first marry was 28.9 for men and 26.9 for women. Second, most people now live together before they marry for the first time. Unmarried cohabitation is particularly common among the young. It is estimated that about a quarter of unmarried women age 25 to 39 are currently living with a partner and an additional quarter have lived with a partner at some time in the past. More than 60 percent of first marriages are now preceded by living together, compared to virtually none fifty years ago. Third, marriage has shifted from being the cornerstone to the capstone of adult life. No longer the foundation on which young adults build their prospects for future prosperity and happiness, marriage now comes only after they have moved toward financial and psychological independence. Fourth, if a person has been to college, has an annual income over $50,000, is religious, comes from an intact family, and marries after age 25 without having a baby first, their chances of divorce are very low.

Well, it’s a much different world today for single people than it was twenty five years ago. Even though the world is changing, biblical advice remains the same. What advice does the Bible give to single people?

Take a look at 1 Corinthians 7:8-9, where Paul refers to two categories of single people, those unmarried and those who are widows. What advice does Paul give? Well, it is good for them to remain single. There is no need to rush into marriage and single people should not allow married Christians or unbelievers to pressure them into marrying someone. Marriage is not for everyone, and in some cases, it limits one’s potential to serve Jesus (1 Cor. 7:32-34). On the other hand, if the single Christian cannot exercise self-control, they should marry. For it is better to marry than to burn with passion. Paul is teaching that it is far better to marry and exercise the gift of sexuality in a legitimate manner than it is to practice fornication and incur the judgment and wrath of God in your life! If you cannot control yourself, it is better to marry than dishonor God!

There are several things this single Christian should do. First, trust in the providence of God, that at the right time, God will send the right person into your life. Be patient, for if not, you will run the risk of marrying the wrong person. Second, the best way to find the right person is to be the right person. I’ve seen a number of Christians sabotage their marriages not because they married the wrong person but because when they got married, they weren’t the right person for the other person. Not in their chemistry, but in their character. So, stop looking for the person of your dreams and start becoming someone another person is dreaming about. Make someone else’s dreams become a reality. A lot of single people make lists of what they want in the person they’re looking for. That’s fine. Just make sure that if the person you’re looking for had the same list, they’d find you. Third, until you find the right person, seek God’s strength and direction so that you can resist temptation (1 Cor. 10:13).

Upgrade to MS Office 2013 Pro Plus Desktop

The upgrade to MS Office 2013 Pro Plus Desktop was fairly straight-forward and learning to use it has been quite simple. Overall I am very glad I upgraded so that now I run MS Office 2013 Pro Desktop on all my devices. (Previously I had MS Office 2007 on one and 2010 on another.) This simplifies life a great deal.

I want to touch on just two points in this entry:

· MS Outlook Journal

· Capturing Screenshots with Multiple Monitors

There really is only one big thing to mention about this…. If you are an avid user of the Outlook Automated Journal…you definitely do not want to “upgrade” to Outlook 2013. Why? Simply that MS in its infinite wisdom decided users didn’t really need that feature and removed it! Yeah, I know that stinks. The good news is you can still make manual journal entries, but that defeats the whole purpose. If you use and love the automated journal entries in Outlook 2010 and previous versions, please make it known to MS that you want that feature restored. Oh and don’t forget to make a manual journal entry about this, if you have already moved up to Outlook 2013.

This next feature, Screenshot, may have already been in Word 2010 and I didn’t see it. But I noticed a feature in Word 2013 called “Screenshot.” This is marvelous for those of us who use more than one monitor. When you click on this it will show you a thumbnail of every open window and you can choose which window you want a shot of. This feature greatly improves my ability to write instructions with screen shots without having to monkey around with monitors. So for all you power users with multiple windows open all day long and on multiple monitors, this is a great feature.

Have you upgraded to Office 2013 yet? If so, name one or two killer features that you love and what was removed that you really miss?
