Antenna Up

Pictures: Here are a couple more of these flowers, I don’t see these a lot but I am not all that familiarize with the flowers of the desert.

Antenna : I have put my Antenna up for the MiFi device and it helps a lot in this location. It adds at least 2 bars of signal and a lot of speed to the connection.

Unlimited: This month should be a good test of my new Unlimited Verizon Plan because with the big Windows 10 (1703) update and my everyday use I am sure to go well into the 20s this month. We’ll see if I get slowed down or not. I don’t know how big that Windows update was but I had to restart it after 40% because of a loss connection so I can add 40% of it size to my data used. I am always supersized that Microsoft don’t have a way to save partly download updates in case of internet connections failing.

Privacy Setting: Windows 10 updates always makes you have to go though them again, but this time Windows Latest (1703) has gotten better about it. I still use a Program called O&O Shutup 10 just to check and there where a few things that I changed.

Not much up

Pictures: Couple of shots looking away from the sunset.

What’s up: Not much going on with me. I am just hanging out in an area that I have been in for the last 4 years so nothing new for me. It is the time of year that is winter for me …. well I do have to run a little heat to stay warm. I don’t like the cold much so I stay in more and do less. The holidays are in full swing and I don’t do much on the holidays, other than try to stay out-of-the-way. I am doing fair on my exercise in that I at least get out for a little most days, but not doing near as good as in the last 3 or 4 past years. Guess I just ain’t all that motivated of late. It’ll all pass in time 🙂

Computer: I spend a good bit of time online when I am inside a lot and I have been playing with some of the online office stuff and have found that I like Zoho pretty fair, well for me it seems to offer better privacy then the big guys Microsoft, Google and Apple. Zoho has a really nice Zoho Writer for Android that I like a lot. Zoho files can be downloaded in about any format you want, while the big three and Evernote try to keep you lock into their system. I don’t need an online Office suite but if I did I think Zoho would be it.

My favorite cloud storage is Sync. Again it offer the best privacy.

I hope everyone is doing well and having some great holiday fun.

A few places along the way where you certainly would not want to fall off the bike!

Nice cool parking spot!

Exercise: I just did 5.5 miles on the bike today and that was enough after yesterday’s long ride.

New toys out: Both Apple and Microsoft have new goodies out now but I am more impressed with Apple’s take on things. Not that my budget will be allowing any new Macbook Pro, but they sure look fine.

Wild Flowers and pimping the Computer

Firefox: I use Firefox for my Browser and it is not a very fast browser but I like it because you can get plugins for about anything and I have a ton of them. I know that they slow me down a bit but that is okay. Most of them are for security and privacy but I have some just for fun too. One I just starting playing with is Personas Plus, it lets you make you own theme for Firefox, so I have been pimping my Firefox 😀

Pimping my Fox 🙂

Capture

I also like to pimp out my Desktop. Sometimes I use a photo I shot but other times I just like playing with it. I need to find a picture of Bill Gates and put him looking out the window, you know ….. Microsoft watching 😉

My Desktop

Weather: More rain, looks and feels like a all day thing, we are on a roll here with all the rain 😦 Another all day in the RV.

Chores: Went into the city today, did a little shopping and looking around.

Windows 10: I am now downloading Windows 10 version 1607, also known as the Anniversary Update. Wish me luck!

Update: Update my newer Laptop and looks like everything is working. I did have one crash just after the update, but looks like things are lined out now. I’ll keep checking programs as I go. It took me about 90 minutes to two hours to get it done.
