Cosmos

CosmosA little late on the mentioning, but it is was still running on at least two cable networks as of a week or so ago, “Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey” is some of the better television I have seen in years.  What exactly is it?  That is a big question that requires a bit of an in depth answer – probably best of left to someone like Neil deGrasse Tyson… but I will make my humble attempt.

Insight – to McAfee?

Insight LogoThose who know and read know that it is an inside joke with some folks I know from McAfee that you just do not offer poor customer service to someone from the little spot in the road I did most of my growing up called McAfee or they will just take their business elsewhere.
