And not overly surprised at that. My son was taken to the hospital early yesterday morning, before 6am, in extreme abdominal pain. No, not gall stones, not appendicitis, so any keyboard diagnosticians take a break. Spent almost the entire day with Alan in the ER and then hospital ward. After... Continue reading
I just updated CS6 Extended and Bridge that goes with it. Now, for the past 3 years, Adobe CS6 Bridge has been glacially slow loading thumbnails, and even if you worked in one folder, when you closed Bridge, and reopened it later it would treat it as a new import,... Continue reading

I sent an email to SD Recovery Pro about how dismally their product performed on recovering accidentally deleted image files. I told them I had done all the trouble shooting (tried in camera, in built in card reader, using external card reader, using different computer, all with the same dismal... Continue reading

Because I wasn't paying attention while Wing was getting ready for work, I chose the wrong delete option when clearing off a CF card. I chose DELETE ALL instead of DELETE SELECTED. And of course I couldn't stop the deletion while in progress. I immediately started SD Card Recovery Pro...... Continue reading

I usually have nothing but praise for you, but not this time. I got an sponsored ad on my Kindle E-Reader. I was very interested, logged onto Amazon, look at the item, the options making note that it said "This item ships to Kardinya, Australia". So, ok, I tried to... Continue reading

My bike basket is not your rubbish bin. I saw you toss you sandwich wrapper into it, not thinking that this pudgy old woman was the rider of the bike when you looked my way. I saw you put your things in your car, and head back into the shops.... Continue reading

Wearing my 'desk' glasses. Crisp, clear text, and no more feeling as if someone is trying to gouge my eye out with a spoon, or instant nausea. Should make editing photos a lot less uncomfortable. :) Tried on my 'not desk glasses' and again, no feeling of eye strain. Continue reading

Picked up my new glasses, both pairs. No more dreading to take out my contacts at the end of the day, as my old glasses gave me headaches and extremely tired eyes. Also made appointment to have eyes checked after wearing new kind of contact lenses. I like being able... Continue reading

Good news; my nearsightedness is better. In both eyes, but more markedly improved in my left eye. It's why wearing my glasses gives me eyestrain and headaches. Bad news; astigmatisms are worse. Not a lot worse, but enough that I need new lenses. $1000+ worth of new lenses. Ouch. Continue reading

But "Doctors Without Borders" keeps calling me and asking me to increase the amount of the monthly donation. I have told them over and over, that no, not happening, but they keep calling and wheedling. So, what I did was create an "Auto Reject" caller list and have put them... Continue reading

After treating my chili tree, successfully it seems, for woolly aphids, here are the first two ripe chilies from it. Don't let the small size of these fool you, one of these can boost a pot of chili from 2 burner to 3 burner. Continue reading

I've been reading, and shaking my head at, commentary from people making excuses for the stunts the Republicans have been pulling. I don't mean the constant obstructionism they have been practicing since almost before President Elect Obama was sworn in, the 50+ APPEAL OBAMACARE even if it screws over millions... Continue reading

A thank you to Stevo for his efforts... Last year, a friend borrowed my "Welcome to Paradox SciFi Original Series" box set, and then never returned it. When I asked about it, I was told it had never been borrowed. So, I went in search of it online, and it... Continue reading

Gawd it's hot outside. I got my almost daily walk in and was wondering why I felt like I was sweltering. 'Official' temperature 31c? My bet, a bit warmer here. Came in, got a drink, went back outside to tend to the gardening. In this case, watering plants in back... Continue reading

Such sad, but not unexpected news. Thank you for letting me be one of your 'unofficial grandchildren'. RIP Grandpa. You truly "Lived Long and Prospered". Leonard Nimoy, the Beloved “Mr. Spock” in Star Trek, Dies at 83. Continue reading

But people see no problem with asking me to bring and use several thousands of dollars worth of photo equipment (cameras, lenses, lighting, cables, backdrops, stands, etc etc) and to do a job that would at the least cost $1500 for just the day, and to do it for nothing,... Continue reading

After week of feeding me copied and pasted bull$hit from the FAQs, that even though I had quoted their FAQs in my support ticket, I had enough of their non-support. Here is my reply to yet another inane copy/paste from FAQ with another link to the full version to download.... Continue reading

I posted something on a program makers "Facebook Page", asking a question. I get a reply the next day, to please go to their main site and submit a support ticket. I dutifully point and click on over, copy and paste the exact question on their "Submit Support Ticket", and... Continue reading

When the pain medication kicks it, and you get that first ebbing of pain, it flows back but not as strong, and it ebbs again, comes back even weaker, you know it's been beaten back this time. So there, Migraine wannabe, you are going away, and I didn't throw up. Continue reading

But needed to be done. Got two bags of potting mix as I have two chili plants that need to be topped up. And one of the Geraldton Wax seedlings I rescued from a hole in a brick has more than tripled in size, so needed a new home. I... Continue reading

Loki, just because I went to bed early did NOT mean to get me up early. Yes, pre-dawn birdsong is nice, but I prefer to sleep a bit later. No matter, you're out, back in, back out, fed and I am sipping my morning brew. I do, however, see yet... Continue reading
