Computers in Agriculture

There is no denying it, but computers are making their presence known in the modern Ag industry. Sure there are groups which won’t use technology for their farms, but most of the larger ranches and farms as well as some of the newer up and coming smaller operations are using computers to track their boundaries, soil samples, map where they plant, what they feed their stock and more. It is no wonder that companies such as Titan, Decisive farming corp. and Case IH are leaders in the development and use of the programs which help the farmer/rancher with their equipment, networking and running of their operations. What I do not understand is why those who are meant to encourage those who wish to enter into this growing field actually try and dissuade us instead. Sure, there are many who are not interested because they want to be in larger cities, but age or gender is no excuse to keep those of us who really want to be a part of this from learning or keeping us out of the loop.

More crap from Yahoo & Microsoft!

I wonder why they think we are stupid? I updated my Yahoo account about three weeks ago, and Yahoo keeps sending me requests to “update your yahoo account” because it is out of date. And Microsoft has made all their free games only a three week trial and won’t let me play them any more. I am also, because I refuse to opt into their monthly rental on their Microsoft office, getting demands that I upgrade to their rental because my version (the last one they put onto a DVD) is “out of date!”
W.T.F!  I will not rent a program which in the long run costs me more than one I down load off a disk that has everything I need on it and can use for many years on any computer I own for less than the rental itself! And their guys had the GALL to tell me that if I can’t afford their so called cheep rentals how could I afford a computer in the first place? Now I somehow got one note onto my computer. I have tried to uninstall it and it says the program is not on my computer! If it isn’t then why must I sign onto it before using my computer?
I want less corporate interference in my life as well as less government! Ever since I upgraded to windows 10 my computer has been a nightmare! Microsoft and now Yahoo! LEAVE ME, MY COMPUTER and WELL ENOUGH ALONE!!!!

 

Facebook follies

Woke up to a new Facebook look. It no longer has the sites I had saved in the order I had saved them. I can not access friends or business sites without conducting a search and THEY STILL want my cell number which I refuse to give! Adding it will NOT make your information safer nor YOUR access easier. As far as I am concerned, family or no, I am shutting down all of my F.B. sites. I am tired of people dictating to me I have to use a name that is not an alias (this I use for security reasons as well as business) nor a business name for an ID.I don’t like someone telling me I have to use my cell phone (Which I can’t stand anyway nor do I use it online) to make my site more secure when I know it isn’t the case. So goodbye Facebook. I will miss the fun pixs and the friends I have made. I will miss the instant contact with friends and relatives whom I can’t access any other way, but I do know that being told what to do for “safety” and having the site constantly changed for so called ease of access is stupid and not a reality. Thank you for reading my rant and see you on the side.
