EPD 331: Fan Mail Friday’s (12/02/2016)

December 2, 2016

Dear Remy And Nico,

I just wanted to say I love your Scam Watch feature on JustAnswer.com –Scam Watch: JustAnswer.com Is It A Scam ? Or Is It Just A Really Bad Investment ?-. I’ve read it a number of times and I am both impressed with the feature it self. As well as the very close follow up with all the people who comment on your post.

I just thank God I Google searched Just Answer before I spent my money.

Anyways I just had one question…..

I remember seeing somewhere in that JA.com comment section. I think it was about how you guys go about researching and posting new Scam Watch features. Could you please re-post it ? as I want to use a similar template and or process.

**Keep up the great work :)

Reply:  Well Toby, we our always very flattered when we get comments or mail from our core readership. About any post or feature we have written.

I am very happy to hear you enjoyed the feature and it informed you about a possible usage of the JustAnswer.com  Q+A online service.

Now about our very close follow-up with all the people who comment on the JA.com post. Well we the post and comments very seriously so we answer all comments regardless of what they say. We here at the Computer Savvy Weblog (CSW) have always held replying to all our readers comments as very important across all our posts and features. Mainly because we appreciate having readers and hearing what they have to say.

And here is the comment / template you requested…..

**Pulled from –Scam Watch: JustAnswer.com Is It A Scam ? Or Is It Just A Really Bad Investment ?– Comment section**

2010/04/04 at 8:23 PM | In reply to Ulysses.

Well I want to let everyone in on how The Computer Savvy Weblog (CSW) works in the bulk of cases.

Stage 1: We here @ (CSW) get a report of a possible scam. That is key possible we are not calling it confirmed till much later if at all.

Stage 2: Then depending on the report it can start to go into a further 4 stages. I’ll call them Stages 3, 4, 5 and 6 for sake of keeping it as simple as possible.

Stage 3: -SORTING-

– Scams we are aware of already

– Scams we are not aware of

– Pending more evidence (Example: Not enough e-mail reports or un-verified reports of hear say or just plan angry people)

– Pending more research

** Further sorting as we receive a couple hundred a day by both e-mail, Twiiter PM’s and Comments as you can see by this post…

Step 4: -REVIEW and POSSIBLE HAND OFF-

– Who would best fit to cover this (Which of my current membership is best suited to cover this)

Step 5: RESEARCH

– Self Explanatory

Step 6: PUBLISH And PRESENT

– If the report even gets this far a post/article is written and presented to receive feedback

– Still even at this late stage we are still watching all the comments and e-mails. Which as you very well know I personally e-mail said person back with my response to the comment. At which time anyone is free to e-mail me back or PM me. About my comment or a fellow blog member’s post or comment.

So in conclusion even thou I personally would love to go after all the reports we get, I can’t. But I have a very dedicated research staff and blog crew. Who without none of this blog would even be possible.

But in this case even thou I did not open my own JustAswser.com account. As sure as I am talking to you now, I have plenty of members who did.

Thanks as always for the quick and detailed answer Ulysses,

Remy “Se7en”

What is an “Intranet” ?

November 29, 2016

Intranet – A private network, accessible only to an organization’s staff. Generally a wide range of information and services from the organization’s internal IT systems are available that would not be available to the public from the Internet. A company-wide intranet can constitute an important focal point of internal communication and collaboration, and provide a single starting point to access internal and external resources. In its simplest form an intranet is established with the technologies for local area networks (LANs) and wide area networks (WANs).

Intranets began to appear in a range of larger organizations from 1994. The launch of a free webserver from Microsoft in 1996 helped make the technology accessible to a wider market.

What is a “Floppy Disk” ?

November 22, 2016

Floppy Disk (Also called a diskette or just disk) – A type of disk storage composed of a disk of thin and flexible magnetic storage medium, sealed in a rectangular plastic carrier lined with fabric that removes dust particles. Floppy disks are read and written by a floppy disk drive (FDD). Floppy disks, initially as 8-inch (200 mm) media and later in 5¼-inch (133 mm) and 3½-inch (90 mm) sizes, were a ubiquitous form of data storage and exchange from the mid-1970s well into the 2000s.

By 2010, computer motherboards are rarely manufactured with floppy drive support; 3½-inch floppy disks can be used with an external USB floppy disk drive, but USB drives for 5¼-inch, 8-inch, and non-standard diskettes are rare to non-existent. These formats are usually handled by older equipment. While floppy disk drives still have some limited uses, especially with legacy industrial computer equipment, they have been superseded by data storage methods with much greater capacity, such as USB flash sticks, flash storage cards, portable external hard disk drives, optical discs, and computer networks.

Hi Remy,

I just have 2 questions for you….

1. How did you start blogging ?

And

2. Is blogging hard and or time consuming ?

Keep up the great work,

Ashely C.

—————————-

Reply:  First off Ashely that is actually 3 questions. But no worries :)

Now about your questions……….

Well Alice. I started blogging in April 2008 and before that time I worked with a few companies as a Forum Moderator. But I had never really blogged as such. It was all sort of by accident.

Now onto your question…….

Q:  Is blogging hard ?

A: Well blogging can be very hard by virtue of keeping motivated to write everyday. The other thing that can be hard is coming up with new and unique content each day.

——————

Q:  Is blogging time consuming ?

A: Well that depends on how often you post. Personally I write a few posts a day, of  course not all posts will be published the same day I write them. But I do try to post one new article/post a day. So yes it does get time consuming.

Now if you are as active as Computer Savvy Weblog (CSW) can get. I can spend anywhere from just 30 mins to over 10 hours in one day. You also have to keep in mind answering peoples e-mails, comments and editing post as well as planning out the weeks features and news posts. Some days there is no new on the software I cover other days there can be 5 to 10 posts.

Well Ashely hope that answers all your questions…..

Dear Remy,

I have been following Computer Savvy for quite sometime now and I am a fan for sure. But anyways Remy I have been wondering why most of the posts on the site are listed under your name Remy “Se7en”. Even when they are not written by you.

Thanks for all the hard work :). And Remy can I ask you but one more favour ?

Can this be posted as your next Fan Mail Friday’s Feature ?

Mark W. Redux

—————————-

Reply:  First off Mark since you asked so nicely. It would be my pleasure to post your e-mail as this weeks Fan Mail Friday’s Feature.

Now about your comment……….

Well Mark I am actually happy you asked that question. The main reason for my name to appear on most of the posts is becuase there are only 4 high level admins. Which would be Ding Dong Danny, Mattyblog, Raven and Myself  (Remy “Se7en”). But saying that there are more then 20 members of  The Computer Savvy Weblog (CSW). Some of which are not listed for varies reasons.

But when there is a post written by someone other then myself. You should notice I will always credit that person in the post (Even if my name appears as posted by). That being said that does not make that author any less important then myself.

1 good example of that would be Nico’s very popular Just Answer Scam Watch Feature.
