Good afternoon! This episode of Within the Trenches features Sabrina of West Palm Beach Dispatch Operations. We had an excellent conversation before recording and it was nice because we were able to get to know each other better. After only a few minutes of talking to her I felt as though we knew each other all our lives. This is a must listen episode that everyone can learn from. Make sure to check it out, share and as always, you can email the show at email@example.com.

Hello folks and welcome to a second edition of Tech Thursday with Jabber Log. Yesterday I had an early edition with a sneak peek of The Walking Dead iOS game that’s coming this April. Well I’m back again with a very brief look at Photoshop CS6. Oh yeah, you read that right and it’s up on Adobe’s website to download for free before it officially comes out. I would talk about it some more but we all know about Photoshop and the image within this post should be enough to make you want to go and download it. The link that I will provide will bring you to a page where you can download it directly from Adobe and there are options for both Windows and Mac. All you really need is an Adobe account to activate the Beta Trial and you’re in! If you don’t have an Adobe account you can sign up for one and it’s free! So if you dig Photoshop as much as I do then click on the link below and check out CS6 before anyone else. Cheers!Post Views: 427

Horror movies are my genre of choice. Out of all things horror, my favorites involve Zombies. Almost anything that deals with a Zombie Apocalypse is good in my book. The leaders of my fascination have to be, “The Walking Dead” on AMC and the video game, “Left 4 Dead” on the Xbox 360. If something like this really happened, I would expect it to look how it’s portrayed on the previously mentioned show or game.
So what if it really happened? Where would you go? If you were split from your family or group what would you do? Since we were kids we were told that if we were ever lost to stay in one place. Eventually someone would find you but this never involved zombies. Would you stay in one place in hopes that your group would find you or would you leave? Your chances are rather slim if you head out by yourself but what if you’re given the task of scouting ahead for the group? Or what if you’re simply lost?
If you happen to find something of use or importance to others you’re obligated to leave some sort of message right? This obligation is what interests me the most. You’re alone and separated from your family or group, you get to a spot where you think others will head, and you leave a note for them to find. What would your note say? I think it would be very interesting to see what your responses would be. I would like for you to put yourself in the middle of a zombie apocalypse and think about what you would do to survive. If you reached safety or what was thought to be safe, what message would you leave for other survivors?
What I want to do is document all of your notes on a new blog. You submit the message you would leave and I will post it for others to read. You can name where you live right now as a starting point or you can use any location you want. The point is to dive into your imagination and come up with notes that you would leave for others to read. Maybe someone will stumble upon your message and give an update on the current state of that specific location. You could even leave tips on how to take down a zombie. It’s up to you and it’s all about interaction and participation. The more that participate, the more interesting it will be. If this sounds confusing I will give you an example.
“It’s crazy out here babe. I made it to Holland Police Department but it’s empty. I hope you see this. I’m heading south to Saugatuck. The state police has a post there.”
In the above example, I have left a message for my loved one and anyone else who may pass through. I want to see something like this from you, the readers, of this new blog. It can be anything you want but it has to be within the scope of a Zombie Apocalypse. Let’s dig deep folks. It’s time to let your imagination and creativity flow. If you were in this horrific scenario, what would you leave behind? What would your note say?
