No Agenda-The Saturday Memo

Note from John C. Dvorak

Producers,
I am not sure why but after the last show, which produced one lone executive producer and one associate executive producer, we now have ZERO producers interested enough to contribute for these honors.

This is now dire and based on the last newsletter it needs to improve.
Imagine this. The last newsletter which was pleading for support went out to 15,500 people. A grand total of 18 of you responded by contributing or taking out a subscription. You 18 are to be thanked for caring.

The rest of the folks mentioned in the donation segment, including the two executive producers, were actually carried over from the previous show. This is not a positive result regarding the future of the show.
I personally do not know what to do about this. The recent shows have been outstandingand we receive a lot of compliments but no support. Why? What can be changed? If there is no audience support there is no show.

If you want the No Agenda Show to continue in its current form you must show somesupport. Everything helps.

We cannot continue with a response like we had last time. It was one of the worst in five yearsContribute something, even a dollar, by clicking here to show you are still alive and still supporting your podcast – the No Agenda Show.

This month has been very disheartening
 
Sincerely,,

PS And thanks to those of you who decided to set up payment plans via online banking or who just like to send checks. Remember, it is No Agenda Show, Box 339 El Cerrito, CA 94530

PPS  Please look over the support page here and ask yourelf what the show means to you.
Yes, this is how we actually feel.

    The Internet Can Rejoice-No more Java Plug-in

    Oracle, the makers of Java, have finally stopped producing the Java Plug-in for your web browser, as reported by myce.com. This should provide a number of website crashes initially over the next few months I should guess, with various websites not functioning correctly as the code gets updated. 

    What does this mean for you? Probably nothing but faster web page loading but initially you may find yourself having to REFRESH the web page in order to see the changes.  From a security point of view however, if you still land on a website that has the above image or something like this, you should NEVER be clicking on it to update as you are only going to be installing malware and viruses!

    Trump Playing the media like a fiddle.

    No Agenda Thursday Show

    Stop watching Television and You are Better Off.

     

    Dear Producer,

    The show is struggling to get out of January, the worst month all year, with some additionalsupport. It would be great if you will help with any sort of support by clicking hereand contributing any amount whatsoever. And remember, it all helps.

    If you have never contributed think about the effort that goes into every No Agenda Show and compare it to the competition.

    And consider the amount of time other shows spend talking about the sponsors. Many are generally dubious or often screwy. Do you really need seeds? Or identity protection? These interruptions waste your time. No Agenda uses a direct contribution model to connect you to the show and its content, not to a dried fruit seller or a plastic mattress maker.

    Support No Agenda today. Click here and be part of the team.
    Is this feud staged? Everyone benefits.
    A lot of unusual news hit the wires this week and we will cover it all. Supposedly Donald Trump is going to boycott the Thursday night Fox News debate over a squabble with Megyn Kelly. He is getting a lot of grief over this decision and it remains to be seen how he really acts.

    While this is another good publicity stunt will it also serve as a deliberate moment of self-destruction? Only No Agenda will see this from a unique perspective like all the analysis done on the show.
    A note from producer Christopher:

    "Thank you John and Adam for continuing to bring us The Best Podcast in the Universe! I cannot emphasize enough just how much the No Agenda Show has changed my life for the better.

    "In today's world, it's easy to go along with the crowd and believe just about anything being said. With all the negativity and bull crap around, it's no wonder that so many people are becoming ill. The mind really is the place where it all starts and the No Agenda Show provides a great way for an individual to ground themselves as they are guided through all of the nonsense.

    "Listeners, let us continue to support the show and give John and Adam our best. When we give we are, in reality, giving to ourselves."  
     –Christopher
    If you want real analysis based on research and digging deeper into a story, No Agenda is your show. To keep it alive please support No Agendaany way you can. There are excellent ideas on the support page here.

    What to do when you land on a Malicious website [TIP]


    It is becoming more common. You are clicking through various websites and all of a sudden you come across an attempted computer hyjacking which you noticed was a web page that gave you no option to do anything (but call that number) which you DO NOT want to do!  The website will look something like these images: 

    Actually the fix is as simple as closing the chrome browser, which you can't do by clicking on the X in the upper right. The only way to do it is to RIGHT CLICK on the taskbar at the bottom of the screen and choose TASK MANAGER. Then once the task manager opens you simply END TASK of the Chrome browser. You can also do the Microsoft Three Finger Salute which is ctrl-alt-del and then choose TASK MANAGER.  Once this is done you can then open the Chrome browser again. You will be greeted with "do you want to restore?" which you DO NOT want to do as it will land you back to the same website.

    What has happened is you had landed on a website that has malicious content, as you witnessed by the fact that you were locked out of your computer and they wanted you to call the number so that they could convince you to allow them to connect to your computer and then tell you that you were "seriously infected" and they would fix this and then charge you for it.. extortion is another word for it!

    What Google is doing about this, is when you land on any website, the browser actually scans each and every other web link on that page for these sorts of things. Unfortunately when it does this scan, if there is such a site, it will trigger it as if you actually landed on it, which in a way is the same thing as landing on it.  But because you didn't actually land on it, you still have the ability to 'end task' which is something you wouldn't be able to do if you actually had landed on the malicious site.   Normally if you go to a website by entering the wrong information in the URL, google chrome will put up a red page which will look something like this:


    With the situation that you see above, you should be able to just back out of it or enter a new web url without your mouse freezing and not being able to close the website.

    In any case if you do come across this sort of thing and can't do anything just contact me and I will take care of it for you.

      No Agenda-The Saturday Memo

      Note from John C. Dvorak

      Dear Producers
      A slowdown in listenership and contributions is expected tomorrow as the US East Coast is inundated by a major snowfall and loss of electrical power. The show would like to wish good luck to everyone stuck in the mess.

      This week continues the subscription promotions with emphasis on the Do it yourself subscriptionsYou pick any favorite number and click on the box that says, “Make this recurring” and you’ve created a subscription. Help us get through this week on a positive note.
      Show 800 and Chinese New Years
      We are also headed towards show 800 and double producerships for anyone who makes an $800 donation between now and show 800 coming on Feb. 19.

      This is a major accomplishment and we are offering three celebration contributions consisting of 800 dollars here, 800 dimes here and 800 pennies here. Consider making any of these recurring.
      And also note that 800 is a huge Chinese lucky number and Chinese New Years is the week before on the 8th. Again the Chinese lucky number. Luck abounds. Join in.

      And make sure to listen to another great show tomorrow.
      Your co-host,

      PS And thanks to those of you who decided to set up payment plans via online banking or who just like to send checks. Remember, it is No Agenda Show, Box 339 El Cerrito, CA 94530

      Inbox Zero [tip]

      Inbox zero is something that, I believe, Google introduced when they created gmail.  I may be wrong but that is pretty much when I first learned of this term.  Being a strong advocate of a clean inbox as well as gmail myself, I found it time to help those that might wish to achieve such a goal.

      Inbox Zero as reported by whatis.techtarget.com rigorous approach to email management aimed at keeping the inbox empty -- or almost empty -- at all times.

      With gmail this is something that can be achieved quite easily, especially if you take advantage of the Priority Inbox and Archive features.

      For those using Outlook, and I know many of my clients (still) do, this achievement is much harder to accomplish but it doesn't have to be!

      Ideally you are already using a gmail account for your mail but if you like to open your mail using Outlook you can still utilize the archive folder. It is located as a sub-folder of gmail, named "all mail" so by simply moving your messages to this folder will be utilizing the archive feature.  If you aren't using a gmail account then you can always create an ARCHIVE folder and then use this. As well, you should then be utilizing the built in auto-archive features of outlook .

      The biggest thing I witness when helping a client with computer issues, is the simple fact that their inbox has hundreds, and in some cases, thousands of messages and as a result they find themselves having troubles either finding something or manipulating aspects within an email message such as opening or viewing an attachment.  

      By getting that inbox cleaned out, you will find yourself having much less problems when dealing with your email. Plus, who doesn't love a clean house/inbox!

        No Agenda Show Subscription Drive

         

         

        Dear Producer,

        January begins 2016 and your No Agenda Show is urging the producers to grab one of the many standard subscriptions. Right now the show is in the doldrums insofar as support is concerned. Subscriptions help prevent this.

        Many of you already have a subscription and should consider an additional one or a one-time donation by clicking here.

        Here are the most popular subscription donations.

        $33.33 a month. This is incredibly popular especially with people who use banking systems to send checks.

        $11.11 a month “lucky” donation. People love these lucky numbers.

        $4 a week or 75-cent an hour, recently trending. This is a real value-for-value contribution. What else can you get for 75-cents that is this valuable?

        And if you listen to the show but sit on the fence, then at least have a $5 a month budget monthly subscription donation.
        And by using this link you can actually set your own subscription amount. Perfect if you have a favorite or lucky number. Do it yourself subscription !

        And expect another great show tomorrow.
        If you want real analysis based on research and digging deeper into a story, No Agenda is your show. To keep it alive please support No Agenda any way you can. There are excellent ideas on the support page here.
        Your hosts,
