Internet History

Dealing With Spam, Privacy Issues, and the Like

SPAM is a delicious canned meat product from Hormel Foods, but its name has (unfortunately) come to be equated with junk email.

Nutrition & Fitness

Fast food menus and nutrition information are constantly changing. When I last checked links in this section, some were out-of-date, and much information was also outdated (for example, one site still listed McDonald’s’ Big & Tasty sandwich that had been off the menu for years). If you are seeking such information, go to the vendor’s website and you can probably find it there.
