Remembering Memorial Day – May 26, 2008

May 26, 2008

Flag at ArlingtonImage by ctankcycles via FlickrMemorial Day commemorates the U.S. men and women who perished while in military service to their country.

We cherish too, the Poppy red
That grows on fields where valor led,
It seems to signal to the skies
That blood of heroes never dies.

Moina Michael, Georgia educator (1869-1944)

Confederate Memorial Day
One of the first references to a U.S. Memorial Day was in 1867. A song was published, "Kneel Where Our Loves are Sleeping" by Nella L. Sweet. The song carried the dedication "To The Ladies of the South who are Decorating the Graves of the Confederate Dead."
Here in Texas, we still commemorate the dead from the Civil War on January 19th.

Your Identity is Showing

May 11, 2008

An IP (Internet Protocol) Address is a unique numerical address assigned to your computer and every other computer on the Internet. It's like your street address but for the World Wide Web.

You should know that your IP address is automatically shown to every website you visit, including this one. Even if you just view an image from a website, your IP is broadcast to that site. It shouldn't be a problem for you, but if it is, then you need inexpensive anonymous Internet browsing software.

Blog It, SuprGlue or RSS Feeds?

April 26, 2008

I'm testing this BLOG IT application on Facebook.

When I blog using BLOG IT, it automatically posts to six of my other blogs plus my Facebook minifeed and Twitter.

This is like a reversed SuprGlue, in which I post to any of six sites and they all show up on Garry's Blog via SuprGlue.

I think my RSS feeds might accomplish the same as either of the above, but I'm giving it a try.
