RV Giveway Hoax

WARNING!!! Another RV giveaway making the rounds on Facebook.

IT’S A HOAX!!!

If you check into this giveaway stuff you will notice, there is no info about the company! No location given! No contact info! No rules or regulations with lawyer terms!

THINK!!! A prize this big, would have all that information listed somewhere!!!!

The whole purpose of some of these is to build traffic to this page or group. Then once there are a ton of likes or members, they sell the page or group to someone else who has a product or service to sell. Or to gain access to your info and send you spam, etc! And sometimes to hack your account and contacts.

CHECK THIS SH** OUT BEFORE YOU ATTACH YOUR PROFILE TO IT AND GET HACKED!

“Follow Me” Faceboox Hoax

Another HOAX 😡 post making the rounds on facebook! Have you seen it? It says something like this…

“Did ya know???
Just learned something new …if you go to Facebook settings, account settings, blocking, block users, and type in “following me” without the quotes, you might be surprised who is following you.” … 

Supposedly it will show you a list of all who are following you, without your knowledge. Then you click on “block user” to stop them from following you!

Truth is, it doesn’t work like that unless you have allowed public follows on your profile! This just pulls up users who had the words “follow me” on something they posted public or somewhere in the name of the facebook page, etc. Check it out. Type “pizza” in there and hit enter. You should see results that show the word “pizza” in the profile name, post or something. So, you just blocked those people for probably no reason.

However, there is a way to actually see who “follows” you, besides your friends. But only if you have the feature turned on. Click this link here to learn more!

Please don’t help spread this stuff! Check it out before interacting and share the post!

Turning an SD Card into Virtual Hard Drive

Cool! I just learned how to turn an sd card that was inserted into my tablet, into a second virtual hard drive! Why would I do that? So I can use it to upgrade and run windows 10 on it maybe. I didn’t have enough space on the hard drive in it to do the upgrade. I haven’t got that far yet, but I got the how-to to create the VHD from here…being nerdy again.

NFL Pro Bowl

nfl pro bowlI love to watch pro football, and I like the NFL pro bowl. But, if ratings are low and the players are not really going to play very hard in it (and some not at all), then why not just make it some kind of NFL awards show?

You get the the top 5 nominated players in each position and then only one get’s the award. And, have the NFL man of the year award honors then too.
