What Is It (Little Joke)?

In the non-IT world, someone created this joke: What is it that everyone can see but God can't? 

The answer?

A similar creature!

In IT: What is it that lets you see everyone else but not yourself?

The answer?

Google Groups!

I was using, for the first time, Google Groups. Michael Z., my fellow in the endeavour, patiently explained this to me as I panicked, thinking of the 16 years plus of atrocities I endure, and said: Jee, I am not in the group because my name does not appear and I see 3 but we are four. 

Believe it or not, I did just like the Irish are told to do in Australia and the Portuguese are told to do in Brazil: I even contacted IT support for this one. Sad enough was realising that the IT person knew less than Michael about the tool....

Images and Websites

I was trying to publish a picture through a platform that is not yet completely IT friendly. That is when I found out that we can store pictures online for free, get a link to them for free, and then insert that link in our code. At least two Internet sites will help you there: and

Something to Try if Your Internet Led is Off

In case you lose your Internet connection, it is always worth it trying to reconfigure the modem. I did not put it much faith, but it is actually something that is very likely to work. Every modem has a sort of IP address. You will find that in the manual or on the modem itself. NBN modems, for instance, could have that information on a label inside of the gap. You get those numbers and dots and type them inside of your address bar. That should give you access to the modem page. Now, you probably just have to enter your username/login and password for the provider. Even if the led for the Internet is off, this solution might work. Just give it a go before trying to, for instance, reinstall the operational system or reformat your computer.

Highlighting and MS Word: Can't Remove Highlighting

How do you get rid of colors that appear in your text? Suppose you have tried the painting tool, the highlighting tool, and all else, but nothing worked, so say you had the option to turn off highlighting off for some reason, say hacking, which is probably my case today. What else can you do to get rid of the annoying colour in the background? Here you have the best of the solutions if you don't mind losing formatting. Basically, click CTRL + SPACE BAR to remove all formatting after selecting your chunk of text with the select tool/mouse.

Where do All the Movies Go in Windows?

I used an application (called Camera) that comes with my MS Windows, and using it was easy, but, when I tried to retrieve the movie itself, it all became something like Mission Impossible.

I finally found the answer: Found!

Basically, they all go to the folder called Pictures, inside of the subfolder called Camera Roll. Just look there, and you will see them all, I promise you. 

The application is interesting because, different from the others, you do not need to save the movies after you record them, it suffices pressing the red button. In compensation... .

What to Expect: Interviews and Google

I came across a network message about this guy, Pierre Gauthier, a guy who apparently started his own IT company quite a few years ago (18). He was recently subjected to a test with the company Google. He seems to have gotten furious, and it seems that he could be right in what he says most of the time. They told me that if we mention the source, we can copy the entire document. Since it is all very interesting, that is exactly what I decided to do. 

The only criticism that I think one would easily agree with, in what regards his answers, is that indices are not data: They are ways to find data. We do usually call that set of tokens of information metadata, since only what is part of the main file is considered data. You obviously do not lookup an index, you simply use it as a tool to get to what you want. Then there is one more: TCP/IP connections. The packets should be referred to in the language we use in IT. Hexadecimal is hardware language, but you are not really going to use that to fix or identify problems with connections. The examiner was right in these two at least in my humblest. You could use hexadecimal if you were fixing a problem that had to do exclusively with hardware. If the machines are working fine, which is obviously the case, you would use machine language or interface language, which was the choice of the examiner. Hexadecimal shows you know something, but not to the level the examiner needs you to know to address the problems he referred to, so that I totally agree with the examiner in both questions, I reckon. For Google, keeping their server on air should be of fundamental importance, so that that is indeed a key-question. These things one can learn on the job, as I keep on saying, and we should learn on the job at least sometimes, but if there are more candidates, then they can also choose one that already knows that. It is interesting that he mentions that he never applied for an interview with Google. I also think that people should prepare for exams, so that they need to know the program and have the time to prepare. It is all very interesting, like what moves human kind these days. I am here, facing extreme violation of human rights in First World Democracy because of a last world Country, which is also democracy, Brazil, for more than 14 years in a row, not to say even before I arrive, since every single crime and disloyalty I face in Australia has definitely been caused by a coward, bitchy, envious, and disloyal Brazilian, just to add to what those people from Paraguay wrote on their plate at the entrance of their Country (here lies a brave Paraguayan killed by three coward Brazilians or something similar), and what matters is his entrance exam for Google? Give me a break, quite sincerely. Save me! Please put a banner containing a witness' note in a TV show, real time transmission, live. Please DO save the animals. I am still told all the way through, not to be believed, that I am realistically terminated in this way because I loved sex with love and with first world white men, therefore with European descents like myself. Well, I loved way more my work, my career, and myself, especially my natural body, from 2001, but all is forgotten in the name of killing my sexual power, basically. He has a lot of value, it seems, but, on this instance, he may as well have sunk his feet in the jack fruit, as they say in Brazil. Shame. I thought I had found a twin soul. I would have given him 6 out of 10 instead of 4, which is what he claimed he got. That would increase his score, I suppose. As the man said, perhaps next time... . 

This is the call for his article: Yahoo

Windows 10: Updates, Turn It Off, How

These guys rock: GPolicy

It is all a matter of unrestraining your Windows\SysWoW64 and your Windows\System32, believe it or not!

Oh, well, you also have to download and install Group Policy, so that you can use gpedit.msc, which then allows you to basically kill the disgraceful, and possibly harmful, definitely harmful in my case (had to reinstall the system several times for receiving bugs together with the updates), updates forever. Yes, we have beaten the MS bastards (I chatted with them, and they told me that it was impossible to turn off the option updates, so that, once more, realistically... . I know, I know what you will say: At least it is free to ask questions to MS. Yes, with that, we have to agree: It would definitely be worse if we had to pay for it)!
