SOFTWARE: The app what3words can save frustration and maybe more

Monday, October 7, 2019

2019-Oct-07

Recently went to the Octoberfest at:

Deutscher Club of Clark 787 Featherbed Ln, Clark, New Jersey 07066, United States
///ranged.after.accent

It was mobbed. More than ususal. And, once again, we had trouble finding our firends.

If only, they were what3words Users!

They could have told me EXACTLY where on the property they were.

///making.vest.doctor (or https://what3words.com/making.vest.doctor)

And we would have linked up without the searching.

And, in case your wondering, cell phones were unusable because of poor signal and the loud music.

Argh!

It’s a great tool that EVERYONE should have for that one time when you really need it.

imho

I haven’t kept good stats but I know that several have died prematurely.  Had several replied easily by JUUL which is good.  But, does it have a systemic problem to have so many failures?

That’s why you should NOT rely on a phone for your two factor authentication.

I use AUTHY a free multi-platform authentication program.

An upgrade to Mojave 10.14 … …

… … broke my Text Expander forcing an upgrade, BUT … …

… … Suddenly makes my “Time Machine” work?

I wonder why? 

Not that I am complaining, but I hate when “magic” happens.

Argh!

TECHNOLOGY: Revisionist History Books banned by Amazon, by Michael Hoffman – The Unz Review

Sunday, August 26, 2018

Amazon’s monopoly over the sale of books is so extensive that to be banned by Amazon is, in many cases, tantamount to a death sentence for a book. The public ought to know of the shameful tactics of the hypocrites who are so fearful of the radical scholarship for which they have no credible answer, that they must ban the books that contain irrefutable challenges to their sacred dogmas.

Do we want Amazon as the arbiter of what books are “published”?

NO!

HARDWARE: Can’t find a better mouse

Sunday, August 19, 2018

Wireless Mouse with Nano receiver (Black) An Amazon Brand.

My fiancé needs a mouse; she hates trackpads.  She uses a CHROMEBOOK; as you know I’m a big fan of them.  This mouse just works for us.

p.s., My cockatoo lives it too, unfortunately. But at $10, it’s a lot cheaper than my MACBOOKAIR’s power cable.
