How To Delete Facebook

Amid the data privacy scandals on Facebook, and the most recent with Cambridge Analytica, there's been a message throughout the world to delete your Facebook account.  Now, I'm not sure how many people will really do so, but I've never seen so much press about it until now.

I think FB users are so used to using the social site, maybe most don't really care if their privacy has been invaded?  And at what point do we say enough is enough?  I also just read that hackers could have up to 880,000 credit card numbers through the travel website Orbitz!

I'm not sure if our personal info, credit cards, etc will ever be 100% safe anymore.  Everyone is using websites, social media, and various apps that all require personal info!  Name, addresses, credit cards, birth dates, and the list goes on.

Anyhow, if are tired of the recent Facebook developments and would like to delete your account 100% take a look at this article called How To Delete Your Facebook Account by Kevin Parrish.

Note, you do have the ability to download an archive of your entire FB account before deleting it.  And you'll have to make sure you take off the third-party apps that your account is tied to.  But this is all explained in the article.

Stay "data-safe" out there! :)

Love the XMLHttpRequest Object

I was reading up on some XML and AJAX stuff the other day and came across the XMLHttpRequest Object - when I come across snippets of code like the example in the link, I always try to figure a way to incorporate it into my work.  I always ask myself is this something I can use and make my software more efficient?

This was something I most definitely could use as we have a system of part numbers in our database.  We have users that select part numbers to enter Selling Opportunities so I was able to use the code to look up the part numbers more quickly, showing the part numbers, qty on hand, and some other pertinent info.
Below is an example of some code:
<html> <head> <script> function showHint(str) {     if (str.length == 0) {         document.getElementById("txtHint").innerHTML = "";         return;     } else {         var xmlhttp = new XMLHttpRequest();         xmlhttp.onreadystatechange = function() {             if (this.readyState =…

Book Review: The New Psycho-Cybernetics

The book The New Psycho-Cybernetics by Dr. Maxwell Maltz is truly an amazing book!  This book should be read by everyone!  Whether your self-image is good or bad this book talks about taking steps to improve your self-image, live a longer life, and ultimately be happy!

I myself feel like I have a good self-image, my self-esteem is high and overall I'm an optimistic and happy person.  But I can see how a book like this can help me strive for higher achievements and help me to reach those higher goals!

For those with poor self-images and low esteem this book will benefit you immensely.  The book talks about several examples where people have been down, sick, lonely.  But have gone through the exercises in the book and come out with a much better self-image and becoming much more happy.

There are so many examples in the book its hard to cover them all and that's why I will definitely be reading the book again, as well as a reference for future inspirations.  Towards the end of th…
