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.
Pictures: Couple of shots looking away from the sunset.
A long tall shadow of me 🙂
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.
Pictures: More pictures from the bike trails.
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.
Pictures: This shot from my walk today.
Computer: Well I went ahead and updated the old Computer to Windows 10 Anniversary, I hope I didn’t overdo my data allotment.
The other day (Last Friday) I was talking about using One-dive without signing the computer into a Microsoft account and saying how I used One-note to do so …… well, dummy me didn’t know that now you can sign into One-Drive without the computer being signed into a Microsoft account. In Windows 8 you could not do so, you had to have your computer signed into a Microsoft account. I am glad to know this and now I might use One-Drive a bit.
Weather : We had a bit rain here last night and that is good. For one thing it will help settle the dust a bit.
Exercise: After my long bike ride the other day I had to have another day off but today I did get out and walk for about two miles.
Pictures: More Wild Flowers.
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 🙂
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 😉
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.
Pictures: I think this Yellow-rumped Warbler decided to make faces at me!!! You be the judge 🙂
At first it was nice ….
But it starting to thinking …..
And this just may be a version of a bird making faces! LOL. 😀
Windows 10 : Well the Windows 10 Anniversary addiction was almost 5 gig of data 😦 that took a chuck out of my data.
Pictures: A Chipper and Acorn Woodpecker.
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.
