Maybe that might have been mentioned BEFORE I bought it.

Guess I’ll send it to the College “young lady” who has my WINDOZE laptop. 

ARGH!

NOTRECOMMENDED: LIVESCRIBE

Monday, August 4, 2014

The products — livescribe3 and sky wifi — are both “interesting”!

My use of them was “disappointing”.

And, the “customer service” is 1 for 3 in successful uses.

Also, the “technical support” was slow to respond and very formulaic.

I will be consigning these to the “dust bin”.

Yell, if you want to borrow or buy them.

Cruise line refuses to re-book family vacation after boy diagnosed with cancer
Published July 27, 2014
FoxNews.com

*** begin quote ***

A cruise ship is refusing to let a New York couple re-book a dream summer vacation after their 5-year-old boy was unable to go on the trip because he was diagnosed with cancer.

The parents of Nicolas Colucci say Norwegian Cruise Line is refusing to accommodate them, citing its cancellation policy.

The family-friendly cruise, in partnership with the Nickelodeon channel, was scheduled to start on June 1, but Nicolas got sick on May 19. He was diagnosed with a cancerous tumor in his liver, and had surgery a few days later. He is still undergoing chemotherapy.

The cruise line says any cancellation within 14 days or less of the sail date is subject to a 100 percent cancellation fee. Now, the boy’s family is out $4,000.

I have cruised on NCL.

I would have used them again.

Not now. Not ever.

RECOMMENDED: “Jesus Loves Children”

Friday, January 17, 2014

I know the author and urge you to support him by buying a copy.

Friends,

As a fairly new parent, it was a bit difficult for me to explain to my 3 year-old who Jesus Christ or God is, why we celebrate Christmas, the need for daily prayers and the concept of creation. This Children’s book was my attempt as guided by the Holy Spirit to begin this rather uneasy explanation. This short story has helped me a lot each time I am asked “daddy, tell me more about Jesus”. Hope you find the perspective interesting. For me it reminded me that I needed to return to my first love with our Lord Jesus. It a good read for anyone irrespective of religion or faith.

NOTRECOMMENDED: Google’s GDRIVE while live; when uninstalled leaves a mess. NOT GA; use only if you’re on the “bleeding edge”!

Thursday, April 26, 2012

Looks interesting as a DROPBOX competitor.

I can’t tell if it uses real hard drive space. (It must.) 

So it’s behind DROPBOX. (You can tell DROPBOX that you don’t want a local copy.)

Also, it copies to the local drive all the docs on the GOOGLE_DOC account. (I don’t want them all on local. That’s why I put them up on GOOGLE in the first place Argh!)

Jury is still out!

GDRIVE puts down a “footprint” on your machine. I don’t know what all that crud it but in my case it’s two or three GIG!

Even uninstalling with APPCLEANER doesn’t remove the “footprints” (i.e., at least two directories with big files). One of which is PICASSA related if your believe the directory names.

I’d classify this as alpha software and leaving it the “bleeding edge” folks until it gets more exposure and “testing”. 

It’s imho NOT ready for prime time use.

RECOMMENDED: DRIVESLIM for MACOSX

Sunday, April 8, 2012

PRODUCT: DRIVESLIM for MACOSX

Just thought of something that they could do to improve my experience. So I contacted their support.

*** begin quote ***

I’m a Mac noob.

Is there a set of automator script to run drive slim periodically?

So, for example, cache clear, monthly on the first monday and big files on the second monday. TO prompt those of us with old memories.

From time to time, the various tech site have stuff like this. For example, recently, there was one to delete the IPHOTO automatic copies.

Thanks for good product. No complaints. Just could use some help.

Let’s see if I get a response or is it a “pump and dump”?
