    Windows 11

    Regarding menus in 10, I just write things in the search bar and select the top item in the search result. It is probably just me, but I find it annoying that some things are in the new UI and some in the Classic. We'll see what 11 brings.

    Android phones: Tips, tricks?

    Starting yesterday I got a popup in my Gmail (phone) if I wanted to disable popups (to avoid dual notifications). I have also disabled sound+visual notifications from almost every app in my phone since 2015, and also mail notifications from Outlook at the work computer. I usually check the...

    Android phones: Tips, tricks?

    I can imagine that a droid turbo beat the Z hands down. :) The Edge 20/20 Pro looks interestimg (or G100 for that matter) if I were to get another phone right now, but I will most likely use my current until it dies. The S9+ still gets security updates and I am kind of used to the UI by now.

    Android phones: Tips, tricks?

    I also had a Moto Z... I liked it, 1. Battery life was an improvement over my previous phone (Nexus 5x) 2. Moto gestures 3. Medium performance is fine for my needs. Surfing the forums and reading news, checking the mail. I never had any mods either. I had it until the battery died. The...

    Something Random

    Regarding genders, do they hve to have 31 different toilets at workspaces? In Sweden we have han (he), hon (she) och hen (gender neutral) but I think it's OK if someone want to use other terms. And I don't know, I don't generally think about anyone in gender terms, more in terms of what they...

    Something Random

    3.1 was kind of nice.I remember installing it on a Pentium 120 MHz with 24 MB RAM on a really small partition on the very edge of a HDD, it was really, flying but I had no use for it at the time. And, it also had a really good file manager. 🙂

    I do want to buy a used car

    Personally I would go with a used Toyota, like drunkenbastard suggested.They are good quality to begin with, they are boring = lower probability that they have been punished by aspiring F1/Indycar drivers. And smaller cars like the Corolla means less weight/less stress on the materials. Last...

    In Florida, my biggest concern with a car would be how well the AC works. :) Hope you find a good one sedrosken.

    But Trumps Covid response was not fact based. It was more in line with the response of Bolsonaro of Brazil and Lukasjenko of Belarus. https://amp.theguardian.com/world/2021/jan/24/deborah-birx-trump-white-house-covid-deniers...

    Empire in Decline

    My favourite, Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd, gives a quite detailed view into how some people are reasoning. Words matter. Also a pretty good analysis of the situation in USA, beginning around 18.57.
