February Ouch newsletter

Sans does a newsletter called Ouch. In February’s issue, they touch on Scams, and one of them talked about in this newsletter I’ve seen multiple copies of. They claim that they hacked my computer, turned on my web cam, and they’d send the video unless I didn’t pay. Problem was, I know i have no web camera on this computer, so good luck with a blank video of whatever you’ve got.

The Braille Transcription course to date

Hi all,

I’m going to give you a link which is going to expire in 7 days. This link is to all of the podcast segments to date including one for an upcoming 306. Download the braille transcription segments and give me your thoughts. You can download a complete zip file, or download individual files. Feel free to pass the link along, and lets discuss what could be changed as part of the course for others in my situation.
