Not just about the knee and how to treat it, but what this whole thing is doing to me. 9 years ago a calcified disc between two vertebrae collapsed, needed surgery to fix it. I adjusted to my limitations after the back surgery. I didn't like the fact that dancing,... Continue reading

“Hey! Where’s my dinner!” If it wasn’t for him having to have an insulin shot after his morning feed, and having three scheduled feeds through the rest of the day instead of just two feeds and letting him graze on kibble, and the way he chases after “The Red Bug”... Continue reading
RedFox AnyDVD HD - To me, this was a great shell game. A year or so ago, ONE person left Slysoft, all the others stayed. Then Slysoft was 'shut down', then was reopened a nanosecond later as Redfox 'Project'. Exactly the same software, slightly different logo (they only put a... Continue reading

I'm in a funk about it. I had so looked forward to photowalks, climbing up to high spots to get long exposures, to put my Alpine PULSE to work for making timelapses.... *sigh* I've gone through the photos I managed to get... but still disappointed that I was only able... Continue reading

But when I install a new version of a program over an older version, I always make sure I have the previous version, or versions, available just in case there is a problem with the latest. Someone on a forum asked "How can I roll back to the previous version?... Continue reading

I know what charities I donate to, and I really don't appreciate whoever gave you/sold you the names of people who do donate. When you call my house, and I damned well know I have never donated to you, and even say to you "I've never contacted you." and you... Continue reading

While Wing and I were meandering back to the hotel after visiting the Sea Life Sydney Aquarium. He would stop to take some street shots, I would do the same but elsewhere. To save some wear and tear on my right knee, I walked to the elevator to take it... Continue reading

And it well and truly wasn't my fault. Each leg of the trip the terminal was at the furthest end of the fekking airport! From Perth, to Melbourne and then to Sydney. And of course the baggage collection was at the furthest spot from where we disembarked. Ok, then to... Continue reading

This was an image that I knew had issues. Noisy, lighting all over the place because of cloudy skies during a rainy sunrise. On1 develop the raw image. I made sure I had clipping visible, and reduced the white levels, but not entirely, as it is a sunrise image, so... Continue reading

On1PhotoRaw 2017.5! It's the pre-release version for owners of One1PhotoRaw, so expect bugs and hiccups. (I have latest full release, so if I have any issues, I will just reinstall it) Some of the new features, one of which I had mentioned was missing from On1PhotoRaw.. LENS CORRECTION! That was...

When I wear the compression bands, or the neoprene bands on my right, my left knee hurts. BUT if I wear the hinged knee brace on my right knee, the left knee doesn't hurt. I think it's because I actually shift weight evenly between both legs, instead of leaning to... Continue reading

I got an overdue notice from Telstra, which I thought at first was a spoof email, until I checked the routing and IP address. It was legit. So, then I was wondering WTF because I checked our bank, and I had paid the bill. Two months worth, as I missed... Continue reading

Spoke to the vet about all our cats demanding an extra feed as the weather is getting colder. And what to do regarding Keito. Seeing as he is on glargine (single daily dose, slow release insulin) and scheduled feeding, what do we do when he really wants more to eat... Continue reading

His BGL is always high first thing in the morning because he needs insulin shot after his first feed. What we want are good fructosamine levels. (Glucose attaches to hemoglobin) Keitos' is in the 'good control' level, just missing the Excellent Control. (Insert happy applause here.) Will aim for excellent... Continue reading

I have been using Open Live Writer since Microsoft decided to not update logins and the program itself. I typically use it as a blogging tool for WordPress and Blogger (mirror Blogs) From one day to another, the version I was using kept having errors when trying to post to... Continue reading

Zoner Photo Studio went subscription only in their last version. I asked them if they would ever have a non-subscription version and they said no. I told them (paraphrasing) "So long, and thanks for all the fish!" because I had gotten, tested and endorsed their product as being a Non-Subscription... Continue reading

It seems that even Topaz Labs is getting on board with putting out their own Camera Raw editor. Welcome "Topaz Studio". A full featured camera raw or DNG editor that will easily replace adobe Bridge/Adobe Camera Raw. And unlike other ACR competitors (sorry, On1, but at this time, this is... Continue reading

Yeah yeah, I know Adobe is called "industry standard", but when I get equal if not better results using something other than Adobe Products, which is less expensive, has more tools, and isn't subscription, I say their standards must have a low bar. Corel PaintShop Pro and AfterShot pro cost... Continue reading

The "Car Accident" Scammers are back! Here's the phone number they called me twice from: 02 8006 9329 Yes, I had a play with them, so they called me twice. I asked "Is this about the accident with our Green Kia wagon?" She said she only had details that I... Continue reading

I got a new pair of hiking boots yesterday, because the old pair always bruised my toes and just hurt like hell to wear. After wearing them for over 6 hours yesterday, I wasn't getting cramps in left calf, and my lower back wasn't as achey. I'm hoping that the... Continue reading
