Some great science ficdtion, for starters

By Darlene Bowers
““Thoughts are ephemeral, they evaporate in the moment they occur, unless they are given action and material form. Wishes and intentions, the same. Meaningless, unless they impel you to one choice or another, some deed or course of action, however insignificant. Thoughts that lead to action can be dangerous. Thoughts that do not, mean less than nothing.”

 

―Ann Leckie, Ancillary Justice

For Eric Hardesty II it's lots of Sci/Fi

By Darlene Bowers
"“When you mix Science Fiction with Fantasy you don't have a pure genre, the two are, to a professional separate genres. I noticed today there is a tendency to mingle them, and then excuse the result by calling it imaginative fiction. Actually they don't mix well. Science Fiction, to be credible, has to be based on some degree of plausibility, Fantasy gives you no limits at all. Writing Science Fiction demands care on the part of the author, writing Fantasy is as easy as strolling in the park.”

― L. Ron Hubbard, Battlefield Earth: A Saga of the Year 3000

Tech tips to help you avoid scams

Do not call the number

By Chloe Noel
Ada Public Library tech trainer

As a technology trainer working in public libraries for over three years, one unfortunate trend I've seen increasing is the number of fake viruses and scams. In order to help keep your technology (and your bank account) safe from online scammers, I've compiled a list of things to watch for.

1) It is easier now for people to make fake viruses than it is to make real ones. These fake viruses usually pop up on your screen with a message saying something like "Your computer has been infected. Call Windows (or Microsoft) Tech Support at XXX-XXX-XXXX.”
