“Birthing a ‘New’ Computer – 101” …Blog.

“Birthing a ‘New’ Computer – 101” …Blog.

*** 1Corinthians 14:40) Let all things be done decently; and in order.

*** (1Corinthians 14:33) For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.

Yesterday, I… ‘Birthed’ my new computer! What a job! You see my old computer is over six years old. I upgraded it some 3 years ago, both with a new ‘Hard Drive & Ram.’ How did I move all my Documents, Programs, Pictures and ‘Stuff’… to my new computer? I could have used a ‘Network Cable’ but decided “Not TO!” Some of those malicious… Viruses, Trojans & Worms… hide resident in Photos, Music and the like. I simply used a ‘16 – Gig Jump Drive’. They are always on sale and are priced about $1 per Gig. Then I transferred the date to the JD and Virus Checked it… ‘Twice!’ I also ran ‘Spy-Bot’… to check for those hidden ‘Spyware’ traps.

“Simple ‘Computer’ Maintenance – 101”…Blog. (my)

How long since ‘You’ have replaced your PC…? Many are going to the Tables for the ease of use in any location. What they don’t realize is that a Wireless connection is often needed to access the Internet. Do ‘You’ have a wireless home router? Or do ‘You’ use Mac Donald’s, Star Bucks or any other outlet? I prefer the security of a direct cable link through my Cable Modem. I can isolate this by simply turning off the power strip. Never, “Absolutely NEVER”… Leave your computer ‘directly or wirelessly’… connected to the Internet! That is unless You would like to have your Identity, Banking Information, Credit Cards and other information; stolen by an “Identity Thief!” I have a friend who had hers stolen; and after 6 years and several thousand dollars in fees… finally got it straightened out.

*** (Isaiah 28:13) But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.

*** (Proverbs 14:7) Go from before a foolish man when you do not see in him the lips of knowledge.

Last week when I plugged in my computer for the ‘First Time’… I immediately checked for the ‘Active Firewall’. There used to be published manuals with the computers, but in the last 10 or so years, they have been “Electronic” ones, already placed on your PC. Along with a help screen or even the…“F1” help key… to open the onboard help menu. There usually comes a ‘60 day’ Anti – Virus program preloaded also. I immediately connect to the Internet and download the AVG free edition. Then I remove the 60 day one. Many of the new PC’s… have preloaded 60-day; ‘Trial’ programs, such as MS Office. I purchased the full program today. I also ordered the back-up CD… in case of a future system failure.

*** (Proverbs 9:9) Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser: teach a just man, and he will increase in learning.

*** (Proverbs 15:7) The lips of the righteous send forth knowledge; but the heart of the foolish is not so.

Does ‘$200’ dollars seem like an expensive program… especially when I am using it daily… for the next 6-10 years? I do not think so. The MS Office, ‘Home & Business 2010’… is well worth the price. It contains MS Word, MS Excel, MS Power Point, MS One Note; MS Outlook. In addition if one orders this before February 28, one may have for “FREE”… MS Publisher. That is a $139 program! As I am on my computer from “2–to–6” hours a day; it is perfect for me.  In addition, think of how ‘You’ may expand your ‘Office Skills’ which may land ‘You’ a promotion; or even a new job? In this fast technology driven Global Economy; the more “Computer Skills & Programs”… ‘You’ know… the more secure one is in the job market. When ‘You’ stop learning… Your brain starts to “Atrophy!” Your brain is simply like your muscles… with the proper exercise & diet: ‘You’ have… the healthier one is. If ‘You’ have Children… they will need these skills; especially today and for the future.

Oh Yes… Always run the “DeFrag” program… after each “Update!” [See the ‘simple computer maintenance’ blog above]

*** (1Timothy 4:8) Physical exercise is of limited value, but Godliness is very dear, A pledge of life, both there and here.

*** (2Timothy 2:15-16) Study earnestly to present yourself approved to God; a workman that does not need to be ashamed; rightly dividing the Word of Truth.
(2Tim 2:16) However, avoid pointless discussions. For people will become more and more ungodly,

*** (Titus 3:10) Have nothing to do with a person who causes [heretical] divisions; after you have warned him once or twice.

“Earnestly ‘Contending’ for the: ‘True Faith’ – 101”…Blog [1/5]
*** (Jude 1:3-4) Having made all haste to write to you about the common salvation; beloved, I had need to write to you; to exhort you to ‘contend earnestly’ for the [True] Faith; once delivered to the saints.
(Jude 1:4) For some people have slipped in; among you unnoticed. They were written about long ago as being deserving of this condemnation; because they are ungodly. They turn the grace of our God into uncontrollable lust and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.

Did ‘You’ realize that Life; is a “Learning Experience”…? We learn: “Wisdom & Knowledge & Understanding”… from those ‘Life’ experiences. We also have the Holy Word of God… to give us some of that. Just because ‘You’ may own a “Gun”… that does not give ‘You’ the “Wisdom & Knowledge”… to use it “Safely & Securely!” The same is true with a “Driver’s License!” You have the legal right to “Drive”… but do ‘You’ have the Wisdom: to Drive the “Posted Speed Limit”…? I have some Christian friends… “Who Do Not!” I sometimes wonder ‘If’ they are even “Truly Born Again”… by the Holy Spirit of God?

*** (Hebrews 5:7) For Jesus, in the days of His flesh; when He had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying’s and tears; to Him [God] Who was able to save Him [Jesus] from death, and was heard in that He [Jesus] feared [God], {Matthew 26:39}
(Heb 5:8) though being a Son; yet He [Jesus] learned ‘Obedience’ by the things which He suffered.

*** (Romans 13:1-2) Every person must be subject to the governing authorities; for no authority exists except by God's permission. The existing authorities have been established by God,
(Rom 13:2) so that whoever resists the authorities; opposes what God has established; and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves.

*** (James 1:22) Keep on being Doers of the Word; and ‘Not’ merely hearers: who deceive themselves.

*** (Luke 6:46) Why do you keep calling Me [Jesus] 'Lord, Lord,' but “Don't Do”: what I [Jesus] tell ‘You?’

“Growing ‘Spiritually?’ – 101”…Blog.
(Proverbs 30:4) Who has gone up to Heaven and has come down? Who has gathered the wind in His fists? Who has bound the waters in His garments? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is His name, and what is His Son's name? Surely you know.

Because of the Economy and… all the funds spent on Christmas past; there are some real deals out there. There are even some ‘Lap Top’ deals comparable to those of a Desk Top… and with the same features. One has to ‘search & pray’… for such opportunities. If You are willing to wait… ‘You’ can find what one wants. Having patience and God’s Wisdom… will give You His Peace. Just perhaps it is “Not in His Plan”… for ‘You’ to have one, “Now?” It is “Always Right”… to wait on Him!

*** (James 1:4to8) But you must let endurance have its full effect; so that you may be mature and complete; lacking nothing.
(Jas 1:5) Now if any of you lacks wisdom; he should ask God, who gives to everyone generously without a rebuke; and it will be given to him.
(Jas 1:6) But he must ask in faith; without any doubts; for the one who has doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind.
(Jas 1:7) Such a person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord.
(Jas 1:8) He is a double-minded man; unstable in ‘All’ he undertakes.

*** (Proverbs 30:5-to-9) Every Word of God is Pure; He is a shield to those who put their trust in Him.
(Pro 30:6) Do not add to His Words, lest He reprove you and you be found a liar.
(Pro 30:7) I have asked two things from You [Lord]; do not deny them before I die;
(Pro 30:8) remove far from me vanity and a lying word; give me neither poverty or riches; tear for me my portion of bread,
(Pro 30:9) lest I be full and deceive, and say, Who is the LORD Jehovah? Or lest I be poor, and steal, and violate the name of my God.

“Who is = The Word – 101?”…Blog.
*** (Psalms 138:2) I will worship toward Your holy temple, and praise Your name for Your loving-kindness and for Your truth's sake; for You have magnified = Your Word = above all Your name.

Love; in Christ, Roger / “Psalms 138:2”…!
