I ordered a Breville Coffee and Spice Grinder Model CG2B. I ordered in November last year. Now I don't mind it arriving so late because of holidays. What I do mind is that I was sent the Breville Coffee and Spice Grinder Model BCG200. I specifically asked for and ordered... Continue reading

IINET said it was my network adapter, I said it was the router. Well, we are both right. We got a new router from IINET, as our old one packed it in. Now, I never had a problem connecting to it, or maintaining internet connection with the old one. This... Continue reading

I read an article from a computer magazine. It says that cloud storage is the death knell for local hard drive storage units. Uhh, no. Cloud storage has shown not only is it vulnerable to to catastrophic data loss, but it has also show itself to be hackable. Case in... Continue reading

I keep thinking about this past year. All the ups and downs, meeting new friends, keeping in touch with not so new friends. The trips, the vacations, the photo gear. And when I think about all of that, it pales in comparison to the one thing that happened later in... Continue reading

but I do want to read books available for sale on Kobo, but don't want to read them on my desktop, I have to jump through some hoops, that to describe how to do it is more complicated than the actually DOING of it. (And made more difficult when you... Continue reading

They sent me a link to a survey about how I rate their service. I wonder if they have a selection of "Sucks big fat donkey dick"? I think I will give it some thought before I click on that link. Continue reading

You know something, Apple.. you suck. And not the kind of suck that leaves anyone smiling. Apple sells cross platform Quicktime Pro, an APPLE product, that works on a PC. There is an issue with with it running, and even though this error happens on both PCs and Macs, the... Continue reading

Ok, I am really on my last nerve when it comes to telecommunications, whether phone or computer. Our router died after years of long service. IINET did send another very quickly. That's the good news. Bad news is it doesn't like my wireless on my desktop, and when I start... Continue reading

Ziggy, our older Bengal, has the habit of when she is stressed, she will lick an area on her leg until the fur fall out, and the skin is irritated. Then the vicious circle of her licking it because it itches , which makes it more raw and irritated, which... Continue reading

Although this software package has been discontinued, I still use PhotoProfessional Pro 2.6 made by OnOne. I use it because I have certain presets and filters that never made their way to the "new and improved" OnOne PhotoSuite packages. What I didn't expect was when i went to use it... Continue reading

To sum it up: not bone cancer. Detailed information: The bony growth is the type normally found in larger breeds of dogs. The weight on such a thin-ish joint causes rubbing/grinding and can (an does) cause a bone spur or bony growth, causing pain and limping. Loki is very large... Continue reading

Vet was very pleased with how well the surgical wound is healing, and very happy to hear "What limp?" as the reply to her question about the limp that brought Loki to the vet. That in all probability means that the lump is a callus from an impact from a... Continue reading

Still works on Loki. He had his antibiotics in the yogurt, and 10 mins later, I put his single daily dose of pain meds in a gravy-ish cat food. He wants to go outside, but not until the stitches are out. Poor moggie. Watching him trying to scratch his ear... Continue reading

Vet/Radiologist report: Radiographs of the forelimbs: wrist, elbows and shoulders The front wrist on the right side showed a bony change (different to the left) coming off the distal radius. The change is smooth and doesn't appear to be an aggressive lesion like an osteosarcoma or fungal infection. A sample... Continue reading

Dr S said that the lump is a piece of bone, but not from Loki's wrist. No idea where it has come from. It isn't spongy, nor does it have the 'moth eaten' look of bone cancer. It's just a piece of bone. That being said, the vet wants to... Continue reading

Brought Loki to the vet around 9am, for a hard lump on his right 'wrist', and limping. On advise of the vet, he is there for x-rays and tests. I know some will say "It's 'only' a cat". But Loki is my cat. I've had him since he was 4... Continue reading

There are sometimes too many choices, and it can get confusing. Many people felt coerced into getting CS6 or Creative Cloud because of new camera raw formats, even though their earlier versions of Photoshop worked just fine, but Adobe didn't update camera raw data base for those versions. One great... Continue reading

I got OnOne Perfect PhotoSuite 9 for Photoshop installed and running. The problem I had after that was getting odd errors. Clicked on "Browse in Bridge" and I would get Javascript error. I couldn't load multiple images into layers to, and attempting to photomerge would result in the same Javascipt... Continue reading

I was forced to upgrade to newer version of Firefox. I haven't had any security issues, nor was it working improperly, but because certain websites have changed their coding, and Firefox doesn't quite function correctly (example: pulldown menus not pulling down) Of course, the latest version GUI/Look is a gagger,...

I have been back to doing laps, walking as briskly as possible without limping, in the back yard. I do bring a camera outside with me, just in case the locals fly in for a visit. When I'm done (typically 3 to 5 chapters of audio book) I will water... Continue reading

If I have asked you over and over if the DVDs you're selling are the real deal, because I have been burned by people selling crappy pirated off the TV or old VHS tapes, then burned to DVDs and calling them 'box sets', even with network logos from different TV... Continue reading

This was the very first episode of 'Welcome to Paradox' I ever saw. Blatant advertising is illegal, and the only way to get your goods and services noticed is celebrity placements (current screen star toting new refreshing drink, or wearing latest fashions) A despondent young woman has something that is...
