  • What is an activity tracker

    Have you ever heard of a Fitbit or a Jawbone?  Perhaps you have an iPhone and have looked at the App that has a heart on it and seen that it has a bunch of health signs open.  If you want to be physically active on a regular basis a fitness tracker can give you great information about how many steps you are taking on a daily basis.  Some also offer information beyond just steps.

  • Easter Eggs in your computer

    With Easter just around the corner, what better time to find out about Easter Eggs inside your favorite software. Easter Eggs inside my computer! Yes, this kind of “Easter egg” is a hidden message or inside-joke that software developers will sneak into whatever project they’re working on.

  • Reports of good economic news

    As Kentucky House leaders were putting the final touches on a proposed two-year state budget last week, legislators received not one but two reports of good economic news.

    Last Thursday, state officials said that revenues have grown 4.3 percent so far this current fiscal year, all but guaranteeing a surplus with less than four months to go.  The sales tax, one of the state’s major revenue sources and a strong indicator of consumer confidence, has now increased in 24 of the past 26 months.

  • LCHS students online

    The LaRue County Herald News staff has included information in a special section of their March 16 issue about keeping kids safe online. To tie into their promotion of online safety, I wanted to talk about the laptops that are used in our school system. We are in our sixth year of using laptops in our classroom and we have seen many changes over the last six years. There are many pros and cons to having the internet at our fingertips during the school day and when we take our laptops home.

  • The most important work

    All too often I get caught up in my work. I let myself get bogged down with the hundreds of things piling up. I sometimes feel like I’m drowning in a sea of words, computers, designing, color values and pictures. Then I go home and there’s a mountain of laundry, the sad unfinished quilt I started months ago, the one in the closet I started over ten years ago, my lonely Guitar and Dulcimer that sit in a corner collecting dust. Life gets so busy with work, meetings, ball games, events for school, events for work and many other things I won’t bore you with.

  • Helping new business owners start smart

    Many new entrepreneurs are confident in the product or service they want to bring to the market and they are confident they have the industry expertise and customer focus it takes to drive their business idea. Yet, navigating the process of starting a business gives them pause.

  • Using ranges and filters in Excel

    Compared to the other articles I have written, I received the most compliments and comments on my Excel article, the Sum of All Numbers, which was printed in the December 2, 2015 issue of The LaRue County Herald News.

  • Walking challenge

    Hippocrates said, “Walking is man’s best medicine”. There is new evidence of body and brain benefits from walking. Even a little activity helps, but more is better. With physical activity, the more you do, the more you benefit.

  • Subscription based software

    Software companies began a major transition a couple of years ago from a purchase license to a subscription license for the software you use most often.

    Software has always been a license more like a lease to use, like a movie ticket for a one time use of a seat in a theater, rather than an outright purchase to own.

    Most people, however, never read the fine print on the sales agreement that said you have the right to use, but may not modify, resell, and so forth.
