The Wonders of Electronic Communication- Speaking of Technology, Our Nerd Holiday Presents … New Desktops installed today – Patience

There is some disagreement on who suggested we start a blog …

We struggled on the name – Street-Cents was a play on words and meant to decipher, and make fun at times of ridiculous “Breaking News” flashes …

It was really rough writing and no organization originally … Lot’s of writers block too !

Slowly, more people took notice …

Slowly the author learned how to deliver concise information that catered to the lack of time everyone has this day and age …

This post is nearing number 1500 – yes fifteen hundred posts/articles…

Our Blog Review

As of yesterday, our blog has been viewed 30,350 times from the following areas across the world…. WOW !
Stats ‹ $treet-¢ents — WordPress

Technology is making the world small (maybe flat?) and we really enjoy the ability to share information so seamlessly across the world….

Thanks to all of you for taking a few moments three times a week to review our “All Original” posts… We are glad to share the word!

New Desktops Today

After multiple “Blue Screens of Death” on Jen’s computer, we are having new boxes installed today – trying to get in front of the most ill timed crash, even though long time followers know we generally try to do our Technology upgrades during the slower summer season…

Good Bye old Friend….

Old Desktop

The new speed will be welcomed, but P-A-T-I-E-N-C-E  will be needed as we try to get the new machine working seamlessly before years end…

Have a Great “Nerd Christmas” Day!
