Re: GravityLight

The project is about bringing light to areas with little to no electricity... and little money for batteries, if they can even find any. There is also a campaign to furnish these to the target market at no cost. I love the concept, but will not be buying one myself. For anyone that does, you would b...

GravityLight

I had seen a few internet ads for this lately, but none with any real info, so... curiosity killed the cat. The GravityLight is a fantastic concept, whereby a small LED lamp is illuminated for 20 minutes by lifting a weight and letting it gradually descend, powering a generator in the process. It wa...

Web Document tab missing in file properties

I recently noticed an annoying problem when I right-click any .url file, or and shortcut (.lnk) to a .url file, and select properties to see the target. The "Web Document" tab was missing. Previous versions of Windows had the target in a "Shortcut" tab, which Windows 10 still use...

Re: The Android Authority Agrees With Me

Excellent article and also one of my long-time beefs. And as he said, things that are not designed to be repaired are indeed possible to repair -- just damn near, but not impossible, and if you can't or won't do it yourself, it will probably cost as much as replacing the whole enchilada. And if you ...

Re: This Was Before My Time

I read that and found it very interesting. Long before my time also, as I moved here in 1976. I think I had heard it mentioned before, but knew no details. It was a very ambitious concept, and a shame it never came to be. And it is not to be confused with the water park just east of LC, that also ne...

Re: VPN blocked on certain websites

PIA (Private Internet Access), but from what I have read the issue cuts across all, or at least most, VPNs. BTW, I have been very pleased so far with PIA, and have been using it for slightly over a year. Occassionally it will either drop a connection, or even freeze up, but that is rare. Simply Task...

VPN blocked on certain websites

I have previously noted my frequent inability to connect to the Golden Triangle PC Club website, across all my computers and browsers. I also narrowed down the problem to my use of a Texas server setting in my VPN, although I could connect if I switched to a Florida setting! Upon a bit more digging,...

Yep! :lol:
I've seen that or a variation of it before, but it is still funny, and pretty close to the truth.

Re: The First Kindle?

That is pretty cool, but his eyes must have been pretty good to be able to read that tiny print!
