Let's talk about Online Privacy! So, I see a lot of people bragging about online privacy and totally freaking out about that topic. I've seen and read a lot of different things about that.

So, I have received this question from a fan of Simple Programmer, asking me what do I do to protect my address online, especially since I have become public like that, creating a YouTube channel and everything.

People are really concerned about people discovering their addresses and they are really trying everything out to protect their identities. Bottom line is: if someone wants to track you down and kill you, they will. No matter how much you protect yourself and try to hide your address and everything else.

So, what are the best practices for protecting your address online? Watch this video and find out!

Recently, I was with my wife in the living room and she was zapping through the TV and stopped watching Breaking Bad. You know I don't watch TV and I've talked about it several times before.

However, I need to confess that this show got my attention. I was drawn to the TV and I started watching Breaking Bad. Here is the show synopsis:
"A struggling high school chemistry teacher, Walter White (Bryan Cranston), is diagnosed with inoperable, advanced lung cancer. On a ride along with his DEA agent brother-in-law Hank Schrader (Dean Norris), Walter sees a former student of his, Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul), fleeing the scene of a meth lab. He later contacts Jesse and devises a scheme to become partners in an attempt to combine their skills to manufacture and distribute methamphetamine, with Walter cooking the product and Jesse using his street connections to distribute it. Walter says he wants to provide financial stability for his pregnant wife, Skyler (Anna Gunn) and disabled son, and to pay for his expensive cancer treatment. During Walter and Jesse's first days of selling Albuquerque's finest meth, they encounter a series of problems with local drug dealers. He continues to produce meth despite these setbacks using the alias 'Heisenberg'."

However, the biggest thing that I got from the show was the life lesson that I could extract from it. Walter woke up for life. Did you wake up already?
