A simple thing

Well, as usual people don’t know what they don’t know and won’t take the time to explore – so they need to be told.  On this occasion I’m sharing this simple timer thing that lives on Windows 10. Obviously, I can’t say nor do I have time to check ifRead More

The down sides of electronic media

As the title says, this is an exploration of ‘down sides’. If you wish for a balanced perspective, move on now! I mean now! What do I mean by electronic media? I mean all forms of electronic communication and interaction e.g. emails, text (sms) messages, online banking, video conferencing etcRead More

Contacts lists

A conversation yesterday 26th June 2021, got me thinking about this. By coincidence, I was in the process of weeding out junk-contacts from my contacts list. Someone – Person X –  asked me for contact details for an accountant which I had passed to them a few months ago. Why?Read More

Future loss to present cost ratio

Okay – so I have nothing better to do on a Sunday morning than think about this. And yes – I do ‘have a life’! Some advert came in from Argos on new TVs. I don’t even need a new TV. I click on the advert and came across aRead More

Time wasting junk

Over the last 2 weeks I’ve been on an e-cleaning binge! That means I’ve been sorting out loads of electronic files of all types and cleaning up electronic messages. Did I say ‘electronic messages‘? Just checking. Yes – I did! Some fool wants to know what does ‘electronic messages’ mean.Read More

Taylor Wilson: The Next Einstein!

Taylor Wilson (not related to Taylor Swift – just in case), has been called ‘The Next Einstein‘ – not by me. This is not a spoon-feeding session so anybody who reads this had better do some searching on the net to learn more. I will post a few key linksRead More

Roboform

This is not an advertisement! This is only about me sharing knowledge of something very useful. It’s called Roboform. Immediately some fool somewhere wants to know whether it’s free. ‘Everybody’ wants ‘everything’ for free innit. Well it is not! So if you’re looking for ‘free’ – kindly get lost rightRead More

Bitcoin and crytpos – is understanding useful?

What people immediately ‘understand’ is that this post is about understanding Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies. Well, it isn’t! This is the math behind or under Bitcoin: https://www.coindesk.com/math-behind-bitcoin You could spend your life understanding it – and it wouldn’t help anything. Preamble In this post where I say ‘Bitcoin’ I include allRead More
