cuba web servers

Cuba is just SUCH a danger to the world (sarcasm) that their web servers are getting pounded into the dust daily. I can rarely read anything from there anymore.

My guess: Miami.

spouse gets hooked on computer browser game

Brian got majorly absorbed in the Google Doodle Champion Island Game. It kept him busy for hours. He ended up completing it and then playing even more. It was fun to watch him.

Maybe I’ll take up the Vivaldia game on Vivaldi browser.

telegram

With big social media being a tricky mixed bag, Telegram messenger is turning out to be a great way for me to gather news and events. It works on desktop and mobile.

I watched a marvelous musical performance from Cuba the other day in its entirety.

You can even chat with me on Telegram. Who wouldn’t want that?

difficult e-mail

When somebody sends an email that includes no text, only remote loading images, this is what happens. Totally blank.

I don’t know what the compulsion is for taking a block of text and converting it into an image.

openweather on mobile

I like this weather app I’m trying out. It’s called OpenWeather.

“Precipitation will start within 24 minutes.” lol 🌦️

I’m in it for the nicely functioning home screen widget.

net software faves

Various things we like for desktop computer for our everyday net business of high importance. We are very important 💡

Mobile list is similar with some variations.

Some we have used for a very long time. The web browsers handle so many things these days.

220 volt power in usa

We just got this 110v to 220v step-up transformer so we can now power up those odd electric gadgets from the old USSR that Brian buys on eBay.

So far the gadgets are all metronomes.

We got the 1000 watt transformer in case we get something that has a vacuum tube or two in it.

Selfie with Ebony and my favorite domain registrar on shirt.

on getting blocked

After getting blocked by a couple on Twitter, here’s a sorta funny I-got-blocked story. There used to be a nice community called My Opera, run by the Opera software company when it was still headquartered in Norway. It was my favorite social media site, and there has never been another one for me that was as good.

There was another user who I enjoyed and thought I was having fun hanging out with until I criticized the Windows operating system one day. He posted about so many things he downloaded to improve Windows: registry cleaners, virus scanners, scanners and improvers of other types, I don’t know.

I couldn’t resist, so I posted the comment, “my God, how many crutches does it take to make that thing walk?” lol. 🩺⛑️

To be fair, it’s when most people were running Windows Me, Millennium Edition. I think that one needed a lot of help.

Windows is used where I work, and after XP, things seemed quite good.

Magtek Edynamo.

It just rolls right off the tongue. That would be a good playa name for Burning Man.
