Proved: Social media turns people into idiots

Oh dear – in the last week the meme factory has been in overdrive after Nicky Minaj tweeted as below.   This sparked side splitting laughter all over the net! Minaj is such an expert that, the Minister of Health in Trinidad had to fact check what she said onRead More

Public domain

What is the ‘public domain’? This came up recently (Saturday 18th Sept 2021), in a telephone conversation. I had emailed a certain (nameless) medical professional earlier that day, in the context of business i.e. not some sort of social contact.

Transcending language

Recently I had the experience of communicating with another person who spoke  mostly French. I speak only English – sorry (like I’m not). Both of us were using Microsoft Translate App. Those who haven’t caught up will be nosily interested in whether this is a male or female person. ItRead More

Dogs and lower animals may solve complex problems

Yep. That’s what I was told in a real FTF conversation tonight 2021-09-04 between 20:00 and 21:20PM. Some must wonder why I even engage in those kinds of discussions. Well, I discover how the average human being thinks. It’s stupid basically – the patterns of thought – and the grossRead More

This proves it!

From an online forum is the following. DB: Well done! What is a blaeberry?! CW – replying to DB: For those who don’t know howto – select word with mouse, right click, then click search option that appears. For those who don’t know how to select text: left click mouse,Read More

DREYFUS

I’m going Draw.io mad! LOL. This software is soooo gooood – and free – and nice! 😁 See my previous post on this. I decided to draw this diagram below with Draw.io  – which has an embed function from the desktop version. It generated the following in code that IRead More

Mindmaps and diagrams

As some will know, I’m very fond of creating mindmaps and flowcharts. I think they provide a very flexible way of looking at how things flow and interact. Sometimes I’m not sure of how exactly my ideas would come together. So, I’d put them into a mindmap and move thingsRead More
