I like to brag that I read a book a week. What I don't brag about is that I am a slow reader. Which means that if I am reading a book a week I am not dusting, washing windows or walking my pooch enough.
Today I found a seriously cool reading tool. Check it out at www.spritzinc.com.
Spritz displays one word at a time. Oh I know its sounds like a kooky way to read but you do read much faster and they claim with better comprehension. Spritz has a sample of how fast you can read on their website, you can choose how fast you want to read. Let's start some chatter about Spritz so we can all be "Spritzing" through our reading soon!

THANK YOU CHRISTINA AND CHRISTY... I HAD THE WRONG WEB ADDRESS! IT'S BEEN A VERY BUSY DAY... WHO AM I KIDDING? I AM A TERRIBLE PROOFREADER BUT I DO HAVE AWESOME READERS. THANKS AGAIN! KIM
In light of the recent Yahoo! Usermame/password data breach my co-worker sent a firm wide email with the best password advice I have ever seen.
I feel compelled to share. Because I am a good sharer :)
OK here it is… use a pass phrase instead of a password. So, instead of using the password kim635 which can easily be cracked you would use something like this “obadrtwb” which would be the first letter of each word in the phrase “one bad apple doesn’t ruin the whole bunch.”
How much fun it that? It’s practically impossible to crack and so very easy to remember.
This article was sent to me from one of the groups that I belong to on LinkedIn. Its amazing and I had to share it. PLEASE if you do nothing else today, open this link and read it. Print the postcard and keep it close. It will serve us all well.
OK I have to admit it, I struggle with the concept of collated vs. uncollated. I can't be the only one because a few years ago I wrote an article where lawyers weighed in with things they wish their paralegal knew and the difference between collated and uncollated documents was mentioned.
My friend Chi Ho made this "diagram" for the collated challenged.
Why did Pacer and several federal court websites shut down temporarily on Friday?
A group called European Cyber Army claimed responsibility in a tweet while media reports gave differing reasons for the shutdown, report the Washington Post blog the Switch and ZDNet.
“Government of #USA!” the Twitter message read. “We have taken the liberty of #Nuking your website http://USCourts.gov ! We are the #ECA #EuropeanCyberArmy.”
Politico had an early report on the issue. A spokesman for the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts told the publication the problem was due to a denial of service attack, which is caused when a website is inundated with traffic in an effort to shut it down. Politico also obtained a court clerk’s email message that said the problem appeared to be a “national cyberattack on the judiciary.”
Then an FBI spokesperson told Wall Street Journal (sub. req.) late Friday that the problem appeared to be caused by technical issues in federal court computers rather than a cyberattack.
On Saturday, however, the FBI said it was reassessing that analysis. Meanwhile, the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts was sticking to its assessment that the outage was the result of a malicious attack.
Charles Hall, a spokesman for the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts, told the Washington Times that court officials had no comment on any groups claiming responsibility on social media. The attack began at 3:22 p.m., he said. Pacer appeared to be working again at about 7 p.m., the article said.
