Cybersalt News

Here's what's new on the Cybersalt Site each day.

Oh Look, Chicken Thursday!

How an SSD Drive WorksI want to give a shoutout to Cybersaltine G. Keeler whom I had the pleasure of meeting over Zoom yesterday. He and I talked a bit of shop about a website project he is planning.

Speaking about tech things, today's video share is an interesting look at how SSDs work. An SSD (or Solid State Drive) is a computer hard drive without any moving parts. It is much faster than mechanical drives, which I like to refer to as "spinny drives" because they have metal disks spinning inside of them. A word of warning, don't watch this video if you are operating heavy machinery because I almost ended up napping the first time I watched it. It was a lot for my brain to take in!

Sunday greetings everyone.

Anastasiia Tiurina (7 years) "Valenki" balalaikaIf you remember a time in the past that you forgot Valentine's day and doing so created awkwardness and pain in some way, remember that tomorrow is Valentine's Day!

Speaking of Valentine's Day, Grandma Cybersalt and I will not be getting each other anything, just as we did for each of our last birthdays and Christmas. Back in the fall we splurged and replaced most of our 25+ year old carpets with new flooring. We're still enjoying (and paying for) that so we're all good for now!

Todays video share is a lovely performance by a 7-year-old Anastasiia Tiurina "Valenki" on an instrument that is new to me: a balalaika.

Oh Look, Chicken Thursday!

ajrak traditionThere was no mailing last Sunday. Grandma Cybersalt and I enjoyed a full house with some of our kids and grandkids visiting on the weekend! Since I am the night owl of the two of us, Susan turned in early and I stayed up to work on a few things. It was not until 4:00am on Sunday morning that I finished writing the news and then noticed Susan had not lined up the content for the Sunday issue. At that point I opted for some sleep for myself, lol.

Today's video share is a fun one inspired by seeing some of my grandkids playing with Hot Wheels track when they were here. Their setup was about 2,166 feet shorter than this world record setup. The boy in me still would love to have this much track!

Oh look, Chicken Thursday!

Chicken Coop toilet seat doorThank you for your kind words and suggestions after I shared about my probable ulcer a few weeks back. I have not had any further problems since I started taking the medication. I am to take it daily for 60 days and will be following up with my doctor. It's nice to not have the added stress of falling behind in my work because of the effects of stress!

To reduce stress, I am working on some of the constantly spinning brain reminders of what I need to catch up on. For instance, I have hired my first employee. While hiring someone was a first for me, and as such came with its own stress, it is now working out really well! The business side of Cybersalt can now grow, which it needs to do, without all the work falling on me. Speaking of which, if you have a website that needs a refresh, or doesn't work well on mobile devices, or have some other need in the online world, email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and let's talk!

Another thing I am doing has been making progress on my quest to catch up on my emails and have a zero inbox. Proof of my march to success is the image in today's news. Thanks to M. Robertson who share it with me on November, 16, 2019.  Today's PearlyGates item also came from an old email from B Black. Now, my inbox is not that bad - I have already dealt with emails from 2020!

Today's video share is of some oddly satisfying manufacturing processes. It's really fascinating to see how some things are made!

Sunday greetings everyone.

ajrak traditionHappy birthday to Grandma Cybersalt! That's right, she has completed another trip around the sun and we are both very grateful for that! Both of our ages are starting to get up there, but we realize the only alternative to having more birthdays is to stop having them so onward we press!

Speaking of birthdays, yesterday was Bill Romahn's birthday. Who is that you ask? Bill, and his wife Beth are long time subscribers who blessed me with a visit when they were in my city years ago. We did a very Canadian thing and met for coffee at Tim Hortons and I remember that time often! Bill crossed the country with a box of material for the Cybersalt Digest. He has a keen eye for great content, undoubtedly from his years of speaking and speech writing for the federal government. While the speed of copying and pasting material on the computer more often suits my crowded schedule best, I still have the box and thought I'd dip into it to share this bonus item:

A grade school teacher was grading a science test on the human body. The first question was "Name one of the major functions of your skin." One child had written: "To keep people who look at you from throwing up."

Thanks again, Bill!

Todays video share may prove to be timely if you are one of the many people who struggle with what to do with your excess camel dung. If you are crafty you might take up the amazing, ancient process of Ajrak!
