It's been a couple years since I wrote about searching. And during that couple of years the art of finding what you're looking for on the Internet has progressed considerably.

Recently, a serious bug was reported on in the news that could lead to the compromising of secure websites. Sites like Revenue Canada and Amazon were reported as being vulnerable. By the time you read this, all the major sites will have been fixed. You should still change your passwords on those sites as they could have been compromised and nothing the web site does will fix someone else knowing your password.

Mo money. Mo problems
Spring is slow in Fernie, and by slow I mean broke. Everyone is hanging on to their cash a little tighter. It's the annual financial hangover that a saucy winter of late nights and road trips leave behind.

Aries (March 21 - April 29) Compassion
True compassion requires not only the feeling of warmth that emanates when you are in touch with your heart, but in acts of kindness, even if this simply means being a fully attentive listener. Righteousness, fear, anger, and judgement are some common ways to block your natural desire to love. Look about you and inside of you and do your best to love whatever you see.

If you've ever called up all your friends to help you move, depending on the many hands make light work maxim, then you've crowdsourced. Crowdsourcing is a fancy word for dividing up work amongst a large group of people. The search for extraterrestrial intelligence is one of the older examples of crowdsourcing in the computer realm. I wrote about it in a column a few years ago. But tackling a problem by putting it in the public domain has been around a lot longer.

Aries (March 21 - April 29) Miracles
Miracles are occurring all around you right now. Begin to notice them, and you will experience even more miracles. As you relax and trust, you are assured that blessings are surrounding you right now. Be open to a miracle coming your way.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20) Playfulness

One of the many virtues of computers are their perfect memory. Oh, yes, they can have their memory deleted, but absent of calamity or intervention, their memories are perfect. With the exception of a few extraordinary individuals, human memory is not perfect. We forget things and we remember things incorrectly all the time. This is particularly challenging in these days where the demands on our time are increasing almost hourly.
