Pictures: I have no ideal what this flower is but I want to call it the Sea Horse flower, LOL. It is quite the little beauty. As I recall the flowers themselves are dime size, while the plants was about 2 feet tall.
Exercise: I have walk a couple of miles today.
Moved Today: Well I have moved another 25 miles north or so and up about 2500 feet in elevation. Should be cooler 🙂
Verizon Unlimited: Well today after getting set up in my new location I did a speed test on the MiFi Device and I am running 4G speed again and I am well over 10 GIG. However I think they will get around to making it 3G after 10 Gig at some point in the near future.
Pictures: Lots of these little guys around the desert.
Exercise: I walked a bit today.
Verizon Unlimited: Okay, trying to learn the ways of the new plan ……. Today I got an email from Verizon saying they would indeed be slowing you down to 3G speeds when going over 10 GIG on a external device other than the phone, so I decided to try turning off the MiFi device and turned on the Hot-spot on the phone and bang I have good speeds again 🙂 However I don’t know if that will hold or not. We’ll see, need be I can get by on the 3G speeds.
Part of the email from Verizon.
“We’ve noticed that you use more than 10 GB of data each month on your Internet device (Jetpack/router/Home Fusion Broadband). So, we wanted to remind you that, consistent with our Verizon Unlimited Plan terms & conditions, when you exceed 10 GB on that device during your monthly bill cycle in the future, your data speeds will slow down to a maximum of 3G speeds. 4G speed will be restored when your monthly bill cycle begins again.”
Pictures: Here is another Yucca and a flower.
MiFi Antenna: I am not all that happy with my MiFi Antenna and was looking around the net and I am starting to see more and more info on MIMO Antenna that will connect to the newer MiFi Devices with two Antenna ports on them for Verizon I guess that is the Verizon Jetpack 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot AC791L and the Verizon Jetpack MiFi 7730L . I see like all things the price for these Antenna are all over the place. I would love to hear from anyone that has one of these new Antennas and is using it with a two port device.
Birds: I am seeing House Finches, Lesser Gold Finches and Black-Chinned Hummers. It is good to see birds coming to my feeding areas again.
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: Two more wild things.
I like these white balls.
Maybe the last of these for a while.
Exercise: I only rode the bike for 3 miles today. Not doing well with exercise.
Moved: About a 100 feet today, just a bit different spot.
Pictures: More wild things, as time goes by I find more and more little treasures in the desert.
Chores : Today was my day to do chores, laundry, water and shopping.
Pictures: Wild Flowers.
Windows : The Windows 10 1703 update is out and help me burn a good bit of bandwidth today! I am in a area that is a bit slow on internet speed too, so it took me about 4 hours to get it done. All seen to be running well for now but over the next few days as i use all my different programs I am sure I will find something broke somewhere! So far the only problem I am having is that my VPN is connecting a bit slow for now.
