The Drive to make things More Difficult


Bits and Pieces of  8 

(the dogs that ate my homework environment) 

Trying to Work with Google Drive?  

Here are Some of the Gotchas

Forget about Picasa and Learn Files and Folders




It's all about the New App Culture and that just
Can't be good.

Welcome to the Land of  Way Too many Conversions

On Windows I use notepad for most of  my quicky notes.  And over the years that functioning program has served me quite well thank you. different

Enter the World of Google Drive and it's
"Let's throw out this baby with the bathwater"
and use something different

(somehow that sounds so Monty Python to me)

"You don't have to Fix It if it Really isn't broken, Dude!"

But engineer's are always changing things, aren't they?

This mentality is the result of too many

"Kooks" in the Kitchen.

Some things Work,
Other things...
Not so  much.

And so it Goes...

A New Cordcutter makes a Point



===================
Cable was Out last night and yet 
life went on...

With a little gadget called 
Raspberry Pi
the show went on.
----------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------

Of course with my new add on YouTube TV
and my Chromecast connector, I could still
watch 'live' network tv.  Thus I was able to 
see the Clippers win game 6 with Utah and
force a game 7 on  Sunday.

Lucky me, I had just set up my desktop 
computer running Win 7 with the Chrome
browser and had access to my new 


YouTube TV Toy.

-----------------------------------------------

Afterwards, using the Raspberry Pi
We watched old episodes of  Dark Matter
season 2. Which switched on the ABC
pluugin that has a list of  ABC shows
both old and new.  We watched a couple 
of episodes of  The Middle, whose comedy
is not from left field.

Posted: 19 Apr 2017


============================

The Xiaomi Mi 6 is now official. Introduced by Xiaomi founder and CEO Lei Jun this morning, the eagerly awaited handset features a 
5.15-inch display carrying a 1080 x 1920 FHD resolution. 

The Snapdragon 835 chipset is under the hood with an 
octa-core 2.45 GHz CPU, 
and the Adreno 540 GPU. 

The handset will come with 6GB of RAM and 64GB or 
128GB of native storage. 

A 3350mAh battery is charged with keeping the lights on. Because the Snapdragon 835 SoC is 25% more efficient than the Snapdragon 820, 
the Mi 6 should provide users with outstanding battery life.
