Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 review

I won the Yoga that is reviewed here in late Feb 2014, it was for some training and testing and training I did with Intel. Thank you Intel! It took until late April for the Ultrabook to show up on my doorstep. Since I won it, I had “no choice” in the model et al. It is a Lenovo Yoga 13, with an Intel i3-3227 (1.9GHZ) processor, Windows 8 x64 (now 8.1), 8GB of RAM, with a 128GB Samsung SSD hard drive. There is no DVD or LAN connection, Wi-Fi only.

Student of the Gun training, Part 3

For more articles like this or to comment on this one, please visit our other blog at http://www.the22man.com/2016/06/student-of-the-gun-training-part-3/

In part 1 of this article I talked about my adventures in getting to Mississippi, in part 2 I wrote about alternate use of force options. In this the 3rd and final part, I wanted to talk about the Beyond the Band Aid training.

Zach, one of Professor Paul’s sons, seemed unsure and nervous every time I entered the main door or left the classroom and went through the “reception” area to go to the bathroom.

I saw/see my son Jesse in Zach. I did take a moment to tell him that he is a Rockstar. Why? Because I see something great in him, like I did in Jesse at that age, I couldn’t put my finger on it but I know it is there.
They say once it is on the internet it never disappears. With that in mind. Zach, I don’t know what the future holds for you but I know you can handle it, defeat it and come out on top, in every sense of the word, as Dave Ramsey means it, so do I, in you I see a Rockstar. Not the burn out drugged out self-centered type, but the person who exceeds, all he is meant to do. One who people say, “I am better off for knowing him.” Continue reading

The actual steps to cleaning malware from your computer

It has been a while since I put out a “technology” article and figure it is way past time to. I have been working on a couple reviews on the Galaxy S-5 phone, the Samsung SM-W750v (Windows phone), on a Jabra headset/Bluetooth, and my Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga. But as for the tech tips and how to’s I just have no excuse for not writing on them.

In this article I want to go over how I cleanup malware, spyware, crapware, worms, viruses, Trojans, rootkits and other infections. Partly because I have had a wave of them come in (customers get infected) and because you probably go new devices for Christmas and or got bored over the Holiday’s and surfed around and got infected.

Training at Student of the Gun – Part 2

For more on this article and others like it, please visit our other blog over at http://www.the22man.com/2016/06/training-at-student-of-the-gun-part-2/

In part 1 I gave you some of my adventure of getting to the Student of the Gun University from Missouri and my meeting my classmates.

In part 2 I am going to pickup from where I left off.

Day 1 training was the “Force Options: More than just a gun” class. Jarrad was in the back of the room and soon Professor Paul came in. After introductions and a quick overview of our backgrounds from each of us students we began the training.

We went over the various forms of “pepper” spray, Tasers as well as go-no go situations. We used demonstration spray for scenarios and Zack got Tased. Continue reading

Training at Student of the Gun University – Part 1

For updates and additional comments on this article please visit our other blog at http://www.the22man.com/2016/06/training-at-student-of-the-gun-university-part-1-getting-there/

In September I took off 5 days and drove to Mississippi for 3 days of STOG-U training. 1 day of Force Options and 2 days of Beyond the Band Aid.

Being opposed to the TSA and their illegal pat down of American Citizens and one who is more than willing to smack someone who violates a child or is physically aggressive with an elderly person in a wheel chair, I knew my best option for getting to Mississippi (I just love spelling that, no really, I do!) was to rent a vehicle and drive. $213 later I had a rental.
