Default I googled my name

After reading about some boy goggling his name and finding a warrant for his arrest , I just had to check my name out. After all the highs and lows, finding how successful my other characters were. I found out the most successful person was under investigation for the Enron collapse. Needless to say how happy I am with my life.

James,
I'd heard that, too. So, I googled someone else.

Suffolk county sent people to my house five years after retirement trying to get free work out of me. Like I did the job as a hobby. I risked my life for a pay check like most people. If you carry a cell phone and ever answer it they know where you are. And there is a program on most new computers that can do almost the same thing. Why do you think a person in india can fix your computer from there?

Hi James

Did you know once you go on the net you are under the radar and Google has all the info they need, you have a file called Index data on your computer, that is a hidden file that tells them what you are doing and at what time you did it.. and your address,phone number,your cell number,your car, etc.etc.etc. ......and yes your C.C. numbers you use on the net. and your SS numbers they know more about you than your BOSS (wife).

Goggle has one of the biggest dat banks in the world and with your IP address they can track you down any time you log on to the net with one or two key strokes...

Just a note you will see Google poking around all the time on the forum and adding your post(s) to your dat file bank.. I must have a big dat file bank after posting 17,000 items..

Many others do the same thing all the time, here's just a quick look at what they are doing right now..

I've always liked the approach my father took to the post-retirement free-work call-backs by the former employer, some 22 years ago. He worked for Air Liquide in their production plant and had been there for ~30 years, including when the then-current plant was installed. In his final days he received the "I hope you won't mind if we give you a call from time to time for a little consulting along the way. Hi response?

I'm available under either of two consulting plans...

(1) I plan to spend my summer fishing in my new boat. When I go up there I'll take a phone and plug it into a nearby current bush and every time I troll by, I'll listen to hear if its ringing. If it rings, I'll answer it.

(2) You can leave a message on my home answering machine indicating you are prepared for me to consult under "option 2". When I return I will back my pickup up to the loading dock, you slide a new 35hp outboard with a jet (and bill of sale) into the bed and I'll return in 30 minutes to discuss the terms of my consulting.

You know, he never heard a ring on #1 nor a message on #2!!!

Check out that new high-tech cordless router.. wireless and no recharging required!!

I used to work at channel 5 New York which is now Fox news. At that time over 30 years ago they had on their computer in the basement of 205 east 67 street over 3/4 of the people in the United States by what magazines you bought and other data. They were and advertising agency with a TV station.

Now, if they spoke to Harry's aliens, we would all be in deep,,,,trouble....
