Internet Outage – Don't Panic!

Internet Outage – Don't Panic!

Yes, a number of big name websites are down, but your internet is not.

A number of popular sites and services are under siege right now suffering from a DDOS Attack. The attack has taken down Airbnb, Box, Boston Globe, Freshbooks, Github, New York Times, Reddit, Shopify, SoundCloud, Spotify and Twitter.

As a result of this DDOS, there is a massive outage of DNS provider DYN's many popular sites.

DYN is tracking the outage, and will post any news, as this is ongoing. They will announce updates as soon as they discover anything further about the length of outage, causes, and other sites affected.

They are also saying that the DDOS attack seems to be affecting its customers on the U.S. East coast, and the ones more specifically Managed by DYN.

Some European and Asian users accessing these sites do not seem not to be encountering these same problems, so it would seem this is a location based problem.

DYN engineers are working hard to determine the source and resolve all issues.

I say, Don't Panic!!!

It's definitely not the first time we've suffered from such attacks, and it will not be the last. One thing for sure, these things do pass, and usually systems that suffer from these attacks take this a notice to reinvest and strengthen their systems to be better prepared for future attacks.

In the meantime there's plenty of other things to do right now that probably deserves your attention more than the sites affected above.

The Rolling Stones - New Single - Just Your Fool

The song can also be found on YouTube at

Just Your Fool is a Buddy Johnson cover that runs about 2½ minutes. Although short for a single the band still sounds great. The sound is basic rock and blues and has a good harmonica featured. The mixing is excellent and it really sounds like the band is having a fun time playing.

Chuck Berry - New Album Coming in 2017 is called "Chuck"

Chuck Berry, considered by many as the real King of Rock 'N Roll SHOCKED the world again, announcing on his 90th birthday, that early next year he will be releasing an all new album of Berry material. This will be the first new album from Chuck Berry in as many as 38 years.

The album will simply be called “Chuck.”

When Chuck was asked about the long gap between albums, he said that he had a high standard to live up to, and with that in mind we know we'll be getting something truly fantastic, and I for one can't wait!

Other than that, not too much is known yet in the details about this album, except that it will consist mainly of new material written and produced by Berry.

It was recorded in St Louis, Berry’s hometown, and will feature Chuck's St. Louis Band that he affectionately refers to as the Blueberry Hill Band. This hometown backing band includes Berry’s children, Charles Berry Jr and Ingrid, on guitar and harmonica along with longtime friend and bassist Jimmy Marsala.

Berry is dedicating this album to his wife of 58 years, Thelmetta, indicating that it would very likely be his last. “This record is dedicated to my beloved Toddy.” “My darlin’ I’m growing old! I’ve worked on this record for a long time. Now I can hang up my shoes!”

Many of the older Rock 'N Rollers still going have become performing/touring nostalgia acts and new album releases from these artists are usually re-issues, and compilations. So when one of the all-time greats announces something new, the whole world takes notice!

The album will be released next year and as of this posting there is no official date named. Stay tuned.

As always,

Rock On

Rock 'N Roll Hall of Fame 2017 Nominees & More

President & CEO of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Foundation, Joel Peresman is sure to hear from disgruntled fans again, as the Rock Hall announces the latest nominees for the induction Class of 2017.

As Peresman puts it, "You get nasty letters, but you love to see the passion people have for their favorite come this one isn't nominated or that one? That passion fuels the process."

Even though the nominating committee dismissed several members last year, the process whereby they put forth nominees and vote and determine whether the artist is elected has not improved at all. It is still a process that gets explained away in pure bullshit fast talk that amounts to nothing. There is no transparency at all in this act, and when you see the list of current nominees you'll realize that everyone involved in the process should be replaced.

Rock 'N Roll Hall of Fame members are the ones who should nominate and elect those artists worthy of this honor. The present arrangement only disrespects deserving artists, slights them with omission and ultimately discredits the institution itself.

Joel Peresman oversees the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Nominating Committee, and also the induction ceremony. This year, the heinous debacle will take place in New York City, sometime in April, and then televised weeks later.

The fact that they alternate cities for the ceremony and the many artists that they elect, and will continue to elect to the Hall should tell you loud and clear, that the whole bullshit charade is about money.

The list of 2017 nominees is one of the largest put forth to date, and it forgoes worthiness for the sake of diversity.

Joel Peresman and his committees need to relinquish their control over nominating and electing, to the members already in the hall. Until they do, this institution/museum can't be taken seriously.

They elect to the Hall, rappers, hip-hop, R&B, and soul and have elected many artists that most feel do not deserve a place in a Rock 'N Roll Hall of Fame, while ignoring some of the greatest of all time, such as The Moody Blues, Foreigner, Steppenwolf, Dire Straits, and most unbelievably Joe Cocker. Instead they decided to nominate Tupac Shakur along with these others...

Bad Brains - Chaka Khan - Chic - Depeche Mode - Electric Light Orchestra - J. Geils Band - Jane's Addiction - Janet Jackson - Joan Baez - Joe Tex - Journey - Kraftwerk - MC5 - Pearl Jam - Steppenwolf - The Cars - The Zombies - Yes...WTH???

I really don't think these guys know what Rock 'N Roll actually is!

After seeing what we have to look forward to, it's a show that I will not be watching. But, then again, seeing the list, tells me more about the marketing strategies and demographics that they are aiming at, and with that, the money they look to make there.

The mistake the Hall makes is that they will do anything to appease would be sponsors and chase the dollar all while ignoring true fans. We can only hope that there will be changes soon , and that deserving artists get the recognition that we the fans, want to give them.

I put forth a number of well deserving artists that get no respect from the Rock 'N Roll Hall of Fame.

Female Artists:
  • Cher
  • Connie Francis
  • Petula Clark
  • Lesley Gore
  • Carole King
  • Carly Simon
  • Melanie
  • Pat Benatar
  • Tori Amos
  • Suzanne Vega

Male Artists:
  • Mike Oldfield
  • Jim Croce
  • Harry Chapin
  • Gordon Lightfoot
  • Peter Frampton
  • Joe Walsh
  • Joe Cocker
  • Bryan Adams

  • Sonny & Cher
  • The Monkees
  • Tommy James & The Shondells
  • Moody Blues
  • Steppenwolf
  • Uriah Heep
  • Badfinger
  • Humble Pie
  • The Guess Who
  • Three Dog Night
  • Blue Oyster Cult
  • Bad Company
  • The Doobie Brothers
  • Dire Straights
  • Foreigner
  • Journey
  • The Cranberries
There are of course even more that could be mentioned here, but the above are ones for sure that deserve some respect.

Share with me in the comments, who you think should be in the Hall.

How to get MKV files to play on Chromebook without issues

How to get MKV files to play on Chromebook without issues
Fixing the no sound problem on a Chromebook

Chromebooks have been around for a while now, and they keep growing in popularity all the time. As more and more people become Chromebook users, more questions surface all the time with some of the Chromebook peculiarities that leave us confounded. Right now, one of those problems has to do with video playing without sound. If that is you, then read on my friend, I have the answer you are looking for.

Chrome states that they support all of the major video types, which are also called containers. The problem some people are having is that their Chromebooks (regardless of the manufacturer) does not support certain audio codecs as they’re proprietary and Chrome/Google would have to pay license fees to the owners. In general, all MKV containers are supported, but if the audio within the container is encoded in a proprietary codec, it won’t play. This applies to other video formats as well, what people did not realize is that some of the audio is encoded in proprietary codecs, and some of these simply will not play on your Chromebook.

The solution is to convert your video into another format/container and that fixes the problem. There are numerous apps out there, just for this purpose. The unfortunate reality here is many, and most of these app's require registration and then they also charge some subscription type of fee.

It really depends on how much video you use on your Chromebook and if converting files is really worth all of the trouble.

What I've found is, most video works fine without any sound problems on Chromebook. Only rarely have I found a file that plays with no sound.

If you want an easy, and FREE way to fix your video without sound problem, your best option is to use the web app clipchamp.

With clipchamp you can convert, and fix your video. The downside of this, is that the process is a little bit slow, and you can only convert 5 videos for free per month. For myself, that's more than good enough, and I can easily have a file converting on one tab while doing other things in other tabs.

One last tip, if you are going to use this clipchamp web app, you should also be aware that if your machine goes to sleep or your screen saver pops up, your video conversion will probably fail or just not work. This is also easy enough to fix, just add the extension to your Chrome browser called The Great Suspender and select never suspend this site from the drop down menu. This will allow you to keep a video actively converting in a tab that you can ignore.

Rock On!

Extra: I've read elsewhere that you can fix your video by uploading your video to Google Drive, hoping that it will work by playing it from there. I tried that, and it DID NOT work. Don't waste your time.

The Great Suspender

Beth Hart Fire On The Floor

She's a real Rock 'N Roller with a bluesy voice that'll really resonate with you. She's an excellent songwriter and this album is just her latest collection of well crafted songs.

Beth is the female equivalent of a Steve Marriott with her delivery and style.

Her new album was produced by Oliver Leiber who enlisted Michael Landau and Waddy Wachtel to compliment her band that includes lead guitarist Jon Nichols, guitarist P.J. Barth, bassist Bob Marinelli, and drummer Bill Ransom.

From an interview Beth said of putting this album together that she writes in a lot of different genres, and that she had a bunch of jazzy, bluesy stuff, kinda alternatives to Jazz and blues that she really wanted to do.

After getting Oliver Leiber on the project she sent him many songs, and from that they chose these tracks along with a few others that appear on this new album. Beth is very happy with the results on this record, and so will you.

This is a collection of well crafted, excellently performed songs that capture the pure energy that defines Beth Hart's music, regardless of the tempo these songs are all very strong and powerful.

Florida's Palm Coast Papa John's To The Rescue

Papa John's To The Rescue

Hurricane Mathew has come and gone. More than a week has since passed. In this day and age, most of the news is rather negative or outright bad. It's not often that stories with happy conclusions occur in the event of natural disasters, but there was one that is rather special, and you may already have heard, because many have already written about this.

It's one of those really nice stories that definitely deserves to be told again, and again.

Eric Olsen and his family were unable to contact their grandmother., who lives in Florida. They waited to hear news of her well being by the phone, but no call came.

Friday and Saturday passed with no news and so did Sunday. He tried to get the help of local law enforcement officials, but the police and sheriff’s departments “were overwhelmed.” There was a lot of damage, power outages and death, and destruction

Desperate to find out if Grandma was alright, Eric thought to order her a pizza, and have it delivered to her.

Some of the best ideas ever, were born out of desperation, and or need. This clever plan was exactly just that. Eric ordered her a simple pepperoni & cheese pizza. He made the order for her and left special instructions that said in effect to... Please call, his number, when you arrive at the house.

The Papa John's in Palm Coast Florida were happy to oblige.

When the pizza deliveryman arrived he simply called out “Delivery.”
Grandma Claire Olsen answered back “I didn’t order anything.”

The delivery man responded, “Your grandson did.”

After Claire Olsen opened the door, the pizza deliveryman handed her his phone that already had Eric on the line, and he said...“Grandma, I haven’t talked to you in two days. I got worried about you. You must be hungry by now.”

As the Papa John’s deliveryman watched Claire’s reaction turn to relief. Our hero Lance Tyler said, “Her expression was just priceless. It was just like, Wow.”

Eric Olsen shared his special story on his Facebook, saying
Huge thanks to the Palm Coast Papa Johns.”

As of now, Claire Olsen’s power has been restored. Damages from Hurricane Matthew to her area has since been cleared away.

All well that ends well here.

The Beatles Reunion That Almost Happened $ WOW !

It was 40 years ago today that Sargent Bill had asked the band to play...Although they are no longer in style, a reunion surely would have raised a smile!

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, The Beatles shocked the world way back in 1970 when they broke-up. Ever since then, they have always been in demand, and even more so with every passing year. From the time they famously split, until the time of Lennon's death, there was always some hopeful talk about them reuniting.

As early on as 1973-1974 the concert promoter Bill Sargent made offers of $10 million for a reunion, that later went up to $30 million in 1974. It wasn't until the spring of 1976 that Sargent raised his offer again, this time to a whopping $50 million. The offer received national attention with the April 5, 1976 issue of People magazine that put the story on the national stage. For a long time, this was the big talk among everyone, as we'd phrase it today...the water-cooler talk, and everyone wondered if they'd do it.

Paul McCartney even recalled getting a telegram from Sargent that put the offer on paper. For sure, all of the Beatles actually did talk about this.

As it turned out, this was just a fantastic publicity stunt that actually helped make a name for Bill Sargent, and of course it kept all four of the individual Beatles in the limelight having to answer the questions about the if and when or will they ever reunite every time they were interviewed.

The fact is, they all did talk about the offer, but they never really seriously considered doing it. Realizing the publicity potential, Sargent’s offer was upped to an astounding offer of $230 million from promoter Sid Bernstein. Previously Sid worked with the band on their first visits to America. After it seemed like nothing could possibly persuade the band to get back together another offer came forward, and they very very nearly accepted!

That offer came from Saturday Night Live producer Lorne Michaels. This offer was comedic genius, it was just the opposite of the hundreds of millions that they never accepted to the simple offer of $3,000. Lorne puts forth the offer and said “You can divide it anyway you want. If you want to give Ringo less, that’s up to you.” He even made a second offer and upped the amount to $3,200 and FREE accommodations and transportation. It was hilarious, and it even caught the attention of John and Paul, who seriously thought about showing up unannounced to the show to collect, as a good joke on a joke.

For a long while this was some really fun stuff to talk about, but even funnier was when George Harrison, who was on a promotional tour appeared on the Saturday Night Live show actually asked for his share of the reunion money of $1,000, only to be told he was just one and not the whole group, and they would not pay...he complained that they were being chincy, the whole thing went over quite hilariously.

As we all know they never reunited for their fans, at any time for any reason. One could surmise that the main reason why they never reunited was the simple fact that all four Liverpool lads had successful solo careers. They simply outgrew being the Beatles, and apart from each other, they came into their own. There was no need to reunite, for their part the fact that they never did, this always kept them in the spotlight. Truth be told, financially they benefited from not reuniting, far more than if they had.

Chromebook's NEW Top 10 Tips & Tricks

Chromebook's Hidden Features 

The Chrome OS/Browser has some simple, and yet really amazing, really cool built-in functionality that will make your computing experience easier than you might otherwise have thought. Below, you'll find listed is a few of the more essential tips and tricks you need to know in order for you to get the best of your Chrome experience.

Here's wishing you much success with using your Chromebook and hopefully these few tips and tricks will help you out.

1.To capture your screen press, ctrl+switch window. To capture only a portion of your screen, press ctrl+alt+switch window, then you can click and select an area to capture.

2. Zooming any page or web app is easy to do, just press ctrl+ to zoom up in 10% increments, and zooming backwards, reducing the screen image is as simple as ctrl-.

Pages always display at the last zoom setting when revisited so different pages can have different zoom settings.

3. To view your keyboard shortcuts, press, ctrl+alt+?. Then press the key combinations listed below to see your options. To close the on screen keyboard, just press the escape key.
  • ctrl
  • alt
  • shift
  • ctrl+shift
  • ctrl+alt
  • alt+shift
4. Turn CAPS LOCK on = alt+search. To turn this function off, from the settings pane on the shelf of your screen, click the arrow up and click where it says Caps Lock On to turn it off.

5. If you want to multitask like a pro, then you'll love what you can do with the split screen capability. When you open Chrome you only need to click and hold on an open tab and drag it off. This will put it in a separate browser window. This way you can be reading or working on a document or researching something in one window and watch a football game in another or possibly something else. In fact, if you have two windows open, when you split them, they usually split the screen in half.

If you have a larger screen Chromebook or even a Chromebase I would also tell you that you can split the screen further and have more windows open simultaneously. This is great for watching video in a smaller window while typing in another and being able to do research easily from another all at the same time. For this, you'll have to manually adjust the open windows.

6. To change the launcher/taskbar position, press alt+right-click on the taskbar and go to Shelf position menu, and select left or bottom or right. Sorry, no option there for selecting top.

7. Turn your favorite web page into a Web App, just go to your system menu settings finder and click more tools and then click add to shelf and then add. This puts an icon on your task bar. This is a good option if you use web apps quite regularly. It is simpler than scrolling through bookmarks.

Give it a try, if you don't care for it, just press alt and right-click the icon on your shelf and select unpin.

8. To launch a web app from your shelf, just press alt+the number of the app. The Chrome app is by default number one. The rest are from left to right wherever they are, they are that number. Gmail is 2, and Docs is 3. You can change these around any way you wish. This is a good idea for apps you use regularly. If you want to change these at any time just press alt+right click and select unpin. The downside of this, is that you can only go from 1-9. This is a system limitation that I hope Chrome developers will fix in the future.

9. Another way to create shortcut app or web launch icons, is to use your Chrome Bookmarks Bar, and just show only website icons. This is easy enough to do, just follow the steps below.

  • Right-click on a bookmark bar item
  • Select ‘edit’
  • Delete the text in the ‘name’ box
  • Hit ‘save’

10. From the App launcher bar at the bottom of your screen, with the first icon being the search icon, select this and with it you can easily do math calculations and this is also a convenient unit converter.

These are the 10 best things you can do, that you may not already be aware of with your Chromebook. Give these a try, and let me know what you think. If you know of something cool and important that is not listed, feel free to mention them in the comments below.

Bonus: Hard Reboot = Press Reload+Power on.
You may never need to force a reboot  and this is not the ideal way to reboot, but is still something important to know in the event that you are in a boot loop or facing a frozen screen. Depending on live status before encountering a freeze you may lose unsaved work, and or data.

Bonus: Powerwash does not eliminate your settings or passwords. If you ever need to do a Powerwash, have no fear, you will not lose any of your Chrome browser settings or any of your passwords. A Powerwash will only clean your system and return it back to your last use.

Norah Jones - Day Breaks - Reviewed 4 Stars

Norah Jones returns to her piano-based jazz, that familiar place where she emerged from and endeared herself to millions of adoring fans who embraced her simpler blend of soft pop/jazz.

Day Breaks” is Norah's sixth studio album and as she says..."This new album feels full circle because I'm going back to my early influences. After the first record, I drifted away from the piano a little bit. I still played it, but was more inspired to write on guitar. I really loved playing piano on this record."

Norah's wispy, smokey-sultry voice is as good as ever, she is a far more mature artist now, as evident with the songs “Burn,” - “Flipside,” - “Carry On” and the title track “Day Breaks.”

There's a real New Orleans influence in the recording of these songs. With this album she delivers a batch of fantastic new songs. “It’s a Wonderful Time for Love” is in a throwback sort of style along with “And Then There Was You” and “Once I Had A Laugh.” These are standards style arrangements that perfectly compliment the stronger tracks. It is with these perfectly crafted songs that her confidence shines through.

Three of the tracks are covers, “Don't Be Denied” from Neil Young, “Peace” from Horace Silver, and Duke Ellington's “Fleurette Africaine” is an excellent choice for a conclusion to her latest album. These are all tracks you will really enjoy.

In an interview with Billboard, Jones said... "I was listening to a lot of organ trio stuff, soul jazz from the 60s, and listening to the Les McCann's version of "Compared to What" a ton."

"The goal was to do everything live, get really good takes...When you have great musicians there’s no reason to overdub." With this new album, she accomplishes that.

This is an excellent album, it's one of this year's best, and it's one you can play over and over.

The Top 20 Funniest Country Music Songs

This is a Top 20 of the most awful, funny Country Music songs ever made. The following list is an op-ed, and is in no way a definitive list. As a matter of fact, there are far too many really ridiculous country music songs to list, so, any and all lists, along with this one will be purely speculative.

That said, Country Music is a most peculiar genre of musical entertainment. Artists therein often sing about the most mundane aspects of life, and living. Songs usually include words like beer, cheating, cowboys, lying, trailers, trucks, whiskey etc.

Rest assured, I would never-ever recommend listening to country music to anyone, whether they be friend or foe. In fact, if I were you, reading this, I'd be content with appreciating the humor of these wild, and crazy country music titles. If you're foolish enough to listen to these songs just copy and paste the song titles in YouTube search, all or at least most of the titles can be heard there.

Just remember, once you've heard any of these, you can't unhear them. You will be stained forever.

1. She’s Actin’ Single (I’m Drinkin’ Doubles)

2. Save A Horse Ride A Cowboy

3. If The Phone Don't Ring, You'll Know It's Me
