    Wasn't any point. Chris has been whining ever since we left, so I figured he could have it back. For a while. :jkam

    Howdy neighbors.

    Help me find a location similar to this please. I saw this hanging at a gallery recently and can't help but think that there is a similar location a days ride from the greater jacksonville area. Anyone of you more knowledgable to the area than the transplant that I am recognize a scene like this? Can you point me in the right direct to go find it? cheers, Duke

    Not JRowland. Though I have seen activity from him in the regional forums. DR650 rider doesn't frequent these forums.

    Similar scenes on Ft George island between the Ribault Club and Kingsley Plantation. Also happens to be one of the few local unpaved roads that isn't sand, so you can ride there with your camera. See the second (infrared) photo on this page for an example: https://advrider.com/potw-inmate-photos-of-the-week-27-21/

    Edit to add: Other possibilities are the paved road inside Ft Clinch state park on Amelia Island, and farther north, the Hofwyl Broadfield Plantation north of Brunswick. You're probably already aware of Wormsloe near Savannah.

    Hi there... do you mind sharing an area for me to go explore to see these "lots of mossy oak canopy roads" not that I need to know where you live, but I am trying to interpret where to go. Thanks. I know east texas like the back of my hand but haven't gotten out much since relocating to, as you call it... North Flatistan.

    Madison county, Jefferson county. I don't have any names in my brain right now but there are some nice canopy roads in both counties.

    Great article my CIO wrote about Facebook quizzes.

    Do you ever take quizzes or answer memes on social media sites? Sure...they're sometimes fun. I mean, who doesn't want a computer program to randomly select what state you should live in? But there's a dark side to the quizzes and memes, and even the most innocuous-seeming questions can be used with data from other quizzes, memes, sites and cookies to develop insights into your private information.
    The main point of quizzes and meme questions is to tease out little pieces of information about you. Lots of little pieces of information are gold to hackers who want to steal your data, break into your bank account or hack your favorite blood center's computer network.
    Let's use one of my current favorite recent quizzes as an example; it's a single-page
    meme: "Bet you can't remember the name of your third-grade teacher. Prove me wrong!"*
    It doesn't look like a traditional quiz, and the answers are comments, but the answers are still incredibly valuable to a hacker (or your choice of social media site).
    Now...assuming you're not using your third grade teacher's name directly as a security question, what's the big deal with giving out this information? By itself, not much. But computers have an almost inconceivable ability to retain and associate the tiniest bits of information. Here's how: let's assume a Facebook "friend" also had that teacher and put that info on FB (by quiz, meme, whatever). Now, there's a classroom/school association between you
    and the friend. Your friend takes another quiz that answers the name of the street she grew up on. Since you are related to the friend through the teacher, you may have also grown up in the same neighborhood. A hacker can identify the name of the high school serving
    the neighborhood, its teachers,and the street names in the neighborhood. One of those street names just might be the street you grew up on and the street you used in one of your bank security questions.
    Here's another example: in 2012, you answered a question about your birth stone. In 2016, you answered a math problem that "always gives the day in the month you were born." Yesterday, you answered what song was #1 on the billboard chart when you graduated high school. You
    may well have forgotten answering your birthstone (emerald!) or the math problem, but to a computer, the three pieces of information comprising your date of birth may as well have been answered in one quiz, and your date of birth is known.
    For a computer, no association is ever forgotten, and no relationship is too remote. An answer
    to a quiz taken 10 years ago is just as actionable as an answer given today and can be associated with entirely different quiz answers from a different person taking a quiz today -- even
    if you defriended the person long ago (also: defriending is an association). All these tiny answers get compiled into an ever more complete picture of who you are, where you lived, who you learned from, what you like and how you might answer a security question.
    In short, answering memes may have farther reaching consequences than you imagine, and you should proceed with caution whenever you comment. Or just make up something funny and answer that way.
    *For the record, my third-grade teacher was Ms. Main. I remember her because she really (really, really) worked me over on arithmetic, and I've always been thankful for her efforts.
