Fallin’ Back . . .

Heads up.

In case you haven’t heard, tonight’s the night the clocks fall back, so at 2am Sunday morning, it becomes 1am Sunday morning.




We both did little or nothing today. Jan read, napped, and watched TV, while I mostly did computer stuff . . .  and napped, too.

I’m sure we’ve all seen the‘snarky’, or downright nasty comments that show up in the many Facebook RV groups. I’ve regularly seen friend’s Nick Russell, John Huggins, and Ed Hurlburt threaten to kick people off, or actually kick them out of their respective groups because of what they said, even after repeated warnings.

But you would think that a cooking group would be immune, but no. Recently in the Instant Pot for Beginners group, one of the admins had to threaten several members with expulsion if they didn’t stop berating and arguing with other members.

So much for civility.




Elsewhere on the FB front, we still don’t have our ‘Like’ emoticons back. And according to Google we’re not the only ones to have the problem, some dating back four or five years. A number of different fixes haven been recommended, but none have worked so far.

I do know it’s not the browser since it does exactly thing in Internet Explorer as it does in Chrome. So I’ll keep looking.

On the Amazon front, a couple of weeks ago I ordered a 4TB external hard drive to keep on-site system image backups of the 3 PC computers at my clients.

4TB HD

4TB External Hard Drive

At 4-1/4” x 3-1/4” x 3/4” it’s tiny, at least compared to my very first HD, a 10MB SCSI drive that was connected to my Commodore Amiga. It was the size of a shoebox and cost $995 in the early 90’s. In comparison, the 4TB drive cost only $110 and holds 400,000 times more data,



Modern Technology!

The Word of the Day is:  Musette


Thought for the Day:

How many times is it appropriate to say “What?” before you just nod and smile because you still didn’t hear or understand a word they said?

    Hello Greg

    I was wondering if you ever got a satisfying answer from Verizon on your MIFI data usage?  I was considering one until I read your articles.  I have been using a piper on an older straightalk hotspot.  It has used less than 500MB in the last 20+days.  I enjoy reading your articles and appreciate your descriptions of technical and maintenance jobs.

    Thanks

      Steven,

      I never really did. It did help when when Verizon bumped the data up to 15GB. So between the MiFi and our two phones that gives us 45GB a month, which seems to cover us.

      Thanks for reading our blog. We appreciate your comments.

      Greg
