A couple of follow ups and some reader questions!

First off a couple of followups:

Time of day and publication = a question that was asked by Albert. Overall I have found the following based on my posts. Between 5 am and 6 am EDT which translates to evening in Asia and late morning in Europe is the best time for me.

Social  media sharing – I see far more results from Twitter than Facebook

(please feel free to share your input on this topic in the comments)!

I was asked by a long time reader to talk briefly about Anti-Virus packages. The problem with programs like that is updating. If you keep them up to date, they are awesome; if they are even one signature out of date, you are at risk. However, the two that I use and like are McAfee and Malwarebytes. McAfee does a great job on your PC for virus, bots and other risky things. Malwarebytes watches for bots, malware, and other things. The nice thing about both is they have a mobile (phone) and desktop version. Malwarebytes also now offers a cellphone and home pheon scam blocking package. Most phone companies in the US give you free anti-spam software for your phones. Malwarebytes works very well in the space, but always start with the free application and see if it is good enough.

Another longtime reader question was around the release of 5g services for phones in Minneapolis and Chicago in the US. The ask was what about the rest of the world? So Orange and Deutsche Telecom both have 5g pilots in Europe today. NTT has a pilot in Korea and Japan. I haven’t heard of a lot of other pilot 5g programs but will continue to watch and share when they come to be.

Last, although not a question, rather an interesting situation, is something I noticed. First off, I don’t like the color purple. That said, the number of purple flowers on Virily has impressed me in the last couple of days. I still don’t like purple, but I am enjoying all the purple on the site. That said I am not joining the challenge. I have to say the 365-day photo challenge burned me out of challenge mode for a while!

  1. I just want to tell you, that number showing the number of views counts Each view… I now tried and opened my own article 2 times in a row and it was counted so it is not showing only unique views… That is why it’s “not real”….. Best πŸ˜‰

    • No that is not true. Birds are killed often by a number of things.
      1. High Voltage power lines
      2. HOUSE CATS
      3. Windows

      The last two kill more birds than anything. The 5g solutions don’t impact birds in any way. If they did, they would kill humans as well (by the way, Cats kill more birds than anything else. Simple house cats!)

  2. Purple is the color of European royalty, most likely taken from the Romans by way of the Egyptians. Yellow is the color of Asian royalty, and it is also the compliment of purple. So I think that’s pretty interesting
