Cloud Computing

Still cold: Yes, I’ll hush about it when it is warmer and hopefully that will be this weekend. This morning didn’t seems as bad but I think it got cooler as morning went by. We will warm up a little today but no heat wave.

Office chair: When I use my desktop computer I have an office chair I sat in, and it always takes me some time to get back use to using it after sating in the recliner all the time where I use my Table and laptop computer. It makes my back and neck a little sore for a few days and then after that, I think it is probably better for the back and neck.

Cloud Computing: Using internet clouds have become a very useful tool in most people’s life’s that use handheld devices and computers. For me they are the easy way to move small amounts of data back and forth, for instants I’m using my tablet now to write this part of the blog on the night before the post will be used and I’m using Evernote to write this on the tablet as I watch TV ( during the commercials 😀 ) and tomorrow I’ll likely use one of the computers to write the rest, and post. Cloud base data in small amounts is great for me. Thinking a bit more on that, I don’t think cloud base software is a good ideal. Why? Many, many folks are using mobile devices more and more, and don’t know of any reasonable deal to get much bandwidth on a mobile device. If you run software through the clouds it takes a lot of bandwidth to do that. So, with this in mind, I don’t understand way Google one of the most used mobile OSs (Android) is pushing the clouds so much. Now if we all had lots of bandwidth at a reasonable cost, it would be another thing, but for those of us that must live with only mobile bandwidth it’s not something we want to see. I want my apps and most of my data to live on my computers/devices.

Oddly I find networking my computer/devices more difficult than using clouds. Actually with Windows machines after about Windows 7 and up, networking has become pretty easy but try mixing operating systems and different versions of OS and it gets to be fun. Clouds have none of these problems. I think that if I had a stick and brick (house/home, not on wheels) I would use the clouds a lot more, for things like my music and photos which are big data wise, and would chew my mobile bandwidth up like candy. Maybe one day.

Don’t know that I’ve got any big point here, just saying mobile bandwidth is not the best way to do cloud computing with some of us being stuck using only mobile bandwidth, except with small amounts of data.

Bird: Another shot of a White-throated Sparrow, Eating a seed. I think he is saying “Don’t bother me now, I’m eating! ”

Walk: It is about time for me to get out and about. There is a little wind blowing so I will likely walk in the canyon again. Back in a bit.

I’m back from my walk and it was not a long one but enjoyable. I walked with MapMyWalk+! Distance: 2.16mi, time: 51:30, pace: 23:53min/mi, speed: 2.51mi/h.
Short but enjoyable walk
